Style Obsession: Francesco Cominelli

When you are the assistant editor of Vogue Hommes, photographed by The Sartorialist multiple times, and featured on Jak & Jil, you know you are doing something right. Francesco Cominelli’s style is effortless, chic, simple, interesting, and my current style obsession. He mixes fabrics, styles, and accessories to create an envied look and knows exactly what works, especially the fit of a good blazer. Take style cues from Mr. Cominelli, I know I am!!

Here’s To You Mrs. Robinson

I’m back from Chicago but sadly, whenever I saw a stylish gent I didn’t have my camera. But I did purchase some stylish basics that I will post later this week.

Now that Spring advertising campaigns are in full swing, one of my favorites is Tom Ford’s. I always like his simple display of sumptuous clothes but this time there is a twist. The campaign stars Nicholas Hoult and Carolyn Murphy and is reminiscent of the 1960s film The Graduate. Ms. Murphy is playing the older woman as she dotes on the young Hoult. The tan lines recall the character of Mrs. Robinson when she seduces the young Dustin Hoffman for the first time. The styling of the hair and makeup is also ’60s inspired and provides a “devil may care” attitude. The Graduate is a perfect inspiration for Ford who is known for his classic yet sexy designs.

DIESEL PERFECT STYLE


I just saw this short spread and I had to repost it. Diesel is one of my favorite brands, and it isn’t uncommon for me to wear them literally head to toe. I think their clothes are the epitome of relaxed cool and I just can’t get enough. Hope you are having a great day!

CALVIN KLEIN MENSWEAR FALL/WINTER 2010

In case you weren’t at the show, or just missed it on CalvinKleinCollection.com here are some favorites of mine, and some trends I picked out. Hope you are having a wonderful Valentines Day!!!

Opening look. Very traditional Calvin.
I was surprised by this suit, it reminded me more of something I would see out of the house of Gucci than CKM.
Calvin Klein seems to be jumping on the printed suit bandwagon as well. There was a white suit with a much… bolder… print, but I couldn’t capture it because it hurt my eyes.
I salivated over the two trenches they showed. Look at them, giving Burberry a run for their money 🙂
This was, in my opinion, the most intersting look that they showed… It was probably genuine leather, but it looked like some form of synthetic. In any case, it looked like a built in scarf on the jacket when it came down the runway… Very odd, but I kinda liked it.
And a suit made out of the mystery material. Also, not sure if you can tell or not, but the pants are TIGHT! Like really tight… like retro-how-did-you-ever-breathe tight.
Beautiful look.
The mystery fabric in black. I like this one.
I want this half quilted leather jacket ASAP. When does this come off the line?
The super high-back-of-neck thing was everywhere in the show. I really, really liked it. It was almost like a 1/2 turtleneck.
And one of Nicolas’s favorites did a very nice job walking (love what he’s wearing too).

STEPHAN HAURHOLM | NEW YORK, NEW STYLE

I sometimes feel extremely out of it when I haven’t heard of some of these models and then all of the sudden a new one pops up with such an incredible look that it blows me away. And just like that, suddenly I have a new favorite model. I’m not necessarily saying that that is what’s going on here, but this guy Stephan Haurholm is really incredible! I saw these pictures of him on Excellent Male Model (without question a favorite blog of mine) and I just had to repost them. Matvey Lykov is also in this shoot, in the last picture, and although he isn’t really a favorite of mine, he ends up in a lot of my favorite editorials. Have a great Friday!

A TRIBUTE | ALEXANDER MCQUEEN


As you no doubt have already heard, fashion designer (and legend) Alexander (Lee) McQueen has died today following the recent death of his beloved mother.

Not much can be said other than this is a true tragedy and he will be dearly missed. His clothing was wearable poetry and his innovation was something miraculous.

Rest in peace. Our thoughts go out to the McQueen family.

My friend Pearl Westwood found this great picture. Really beautiful.
