Much Love for Moschino

MUCH LOVE FOR MOSCHINO

“Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore” is without doubt the best quote to go with the pop cultured and cool designer Jeremy Scott. After many years of being in the eye of such competitive industry, Jeremy Scott has officially positioned himself as the People’s Designer; Also the title of his documentary following his story on how he became the Creative Director of Moschino. Scott has broken boundaries in the fashion industry and wasn’t afraid to do something different mix pop culture with clothing, some say he could be the next Andy Warhol.

As the fashion enthusiast you guys know I am I’ve been following Jeremy’s steps for some quite time and here are 5 thing you need to know about Jeremy Scott.

  1. He is from a small farm outside Kansas City. I guess you could be a farmer in those clothes and quite frankly I wouldn’t mind LOL.
  1. Studied Fashion Design at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. See he even knew that Brooklyn was the new New York back then.
  1. Launched his label Jeremy Scott on the Paris catwalk in 1997. Paris will always be a good idea.
  1. Is the 1st designer to dress the Diva of Divas, Miss Piggy from The Muppets. Talk about high fashion props to looking fabulous Miss Piggy.
  1. Karl Lagerfeld himself once said that Scott was the only designer who could ever succeed him at Chanel. Could this be? I totally see a Chanel french-fry bag and totally wear it LOL.

So whether you agree with me or are totally repulsed by the concepts of his collections one thing is for sure, we will be hearing more from this cool farm boy.

Mesh it up

New York’s weather is a disaster right now, it’s so hot and humid that the fashionistas are having trouble turning sweat into a trend. And, now that your’s truly has to stay on the Island working all summer, I came up with a couple of ideas to keep you looking stylish, while not boiling with hot layers. For this look, I would say I went a little over the top with a mesh sweater from Forever21. From the moment I first laid eyes on it, I knew it would be a fun little experiment to see how I would eventually style it. I decided to use this mesh sweater that is 100% polyester because its made up of noncellulosic fibers. Petroleum, coal, natural gas, air and water are used to make this fibers. Meaning that chemist working in laboratories produce various combinations of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen to create many of the fabrics we use today. Here, you can see how I layered it with a basic t-shirt from HB designs (a close friend from back home in Mexico) of #Karlito. Considering that the weather is hot as heck, I had no other option than to show some leg with these short shorts from Zara. Keeping the look very minimal with black and white tones. I accessorized with my white and silver Dior reflective sunnies, my Chanel boy bag, and my Fendi key chain of #Karlito that matches the outfit perfectly. On my feet I played it colorful and added my Bernhard Willhelm x Camper color block sandals, just to add a little summer vibe to the whole black and white look. Remember, if it’s hot, mesh it up to look avant-garde, even though the sun is burning your scalp, lol.

El clima de Nueva York es un desastre hoy en día; demasiado caliente y húmedo como para que los fashionistas sufran cada vez que usan alguna tendencia. Ahora que estaré en la isla para trabajar por el verano, me surgieron nuevas ideas para lucir con estilo, sin morir de calor con tantas capas. Para este look, usé un mesh top sobre la camisa blanca Forever21. El primer momento que pusé mis ojos en él, supé que sería un experimento divertido usarlo y adecuarlo a un outfit. Decidí usar un suéter mesh que esta hecho de poliester 100% gracias a sus fibras de noncelulosa. Petróleo, gas natural, aire y agua son usados para crear estas fibras. Lo que significa que la química usada en laboratorios produce diversas combinaciones de carbono, hidrógeno, nitrógeno y oxígeno para crear varias fabricaciones que usamos hoy en día. Aquí pueden apreciar como use distintas capas que estilicé con una t shirt básica de HB designs (un amigo de México) de #Karlito. Considerando que el calor es insoportable, no tuve mas opción que enseñar pierna con mis shorts de Zara, dejando el look sencillo y minimalista con tonos blancos y negros. Accesoricé con mis lentes blancos y plateados de Dior, mi bolsa boy de Chanel y mi llavero de Fendi de #Karlito que va perfecto con el outfit. En mis pies me dejé llevar por el color y me pusé mis sandalias color block de Bernhard Willhelm por Camper, solo para agregar un poco de vibra veraniega a todo el look blanco y negro. Recuerda, si hace calor el mesh up es la opción para crear un look avant garde, aun cuando el sol te queme, jaja.


  
  
  
  

The Bowery

“No street defines Manhattan’s Lower East Side like the Bowery” I am usually spotted in the LES so nothing gives me more thrill then to wear my amazing “Everyone has a story. Wanna be part of mine?” tshirt by Bowery Supply Co. As I walked through Bowery Street I could see how this brand gets the inspiration to create such wonderful tees involving New York as a character and giving credit to such wonderful street. I paired my tee with ripped jeans from TOPMAN and accessorize it with my leather jacket wrapped around my waist from Versace, in my Chanel boy bag a Fendi bag bug was the perfect pop of color my outfit needed. It was essential to keep my feet simple so I paired the look with my 3.1 Phillip Lim booties and a black hat to match my black wayfarer sunnies from Ray Ban giving my look a total street style vibe that went cohesive with everything Bowery Supply stands for.
