The calendar says spring but the wind says chilly. After up and down thermostat weather like situation, Manhattan hasn’t quit yet made up its mind. Today the weather is a little chilly and we are in the need of a warm coat. What better way to say spring then with this amazing cerulean blue coat from Diane Von Furstenberg, keeping me war but with the right amount of brightness that screams spring. Accessorizing with the poudre lock bag from Valentino focusing on the contrast of the patent leather with the blue coat, my brown leather aviators from Chloe and my white superstar kicks from Adidas. Continuing in the tints and shades of blue my Topman navy blue pants were the perfect combos to this cold spring look.
So its Valentines Day and I am wearing red. Today is a special day to stay warm and with your loved ones, don’t hesitate in calling that old friend you miss so much, call that one love that got away, call you mom, call you dad, call and be there for everyone who matters in your life. Today is a day to be surrounded by love stay warm and be happy.
Llego San Valentín y yo visto de rojo. Hoy es un día especial para estar calientito y con tus seres queridos, no lo pienses dos veces antes de hablar con tus viejos amigos, aquellos a los que mas extrañas, llámale a tu antiguo amor, a tu mama, a tu papa, llama y quédate ahí para ellos. Hoy es un día para estar feliz y rodeado de amor.
Para mi look de hoy estoy vistiendo de pies a cabeza de Mr. Nieves y me mantengo cálido con guantes, beanie y lentes de Wood Wood.
Hello kids Veneto is back in town and has a lot to make up for. This past month I’ve been totally MIA because of my holiday break. I had the chance to visit my family and hit pause on the workload but know that I am back I can assure you that this 2015 will be the year of Veneto.
Today I am keeping my butt warm (excuse my French) with a black wool coat from Sandro. Wearing all black to attract at least some rays of sun to help me in this terrible weather. My black ripped jeans from Saint Laurent weren’t exactly the best idea because the cold wind but if I would’ve worn black warmers underneath I think the look can be pulled off give it a try. To accessorize (keep warm) I used my Opening Ceremony black beanie and my black Alexander Wang x HM sunnies. Keeping everything in black and white tones I am wearing my white high-rise kicks from Sandro and my Chloé mini side bag to carry just the essentials. It is brutally cold outside New Yorkers but there is no need in looking terrible besides looking cold. Stay warm!
Despite Manhattans´ weather mood swings today was a very pleasant day. The sun was shining but a cool breeze moved my locks out of place (jajaaj) for today’s look I went all black, wearing my Zara black t shirt paired with black trousers from Helmut Lang. To accessorize and give it a more relax vibe to an all black look I paired it up with my white Keds and a furry clutch from 3.1 Phillip Lim. What to make the look more formal? Change the shoes for black dress shoes and either add a blazer or a leather jacket and voila!!
You can change the whole look of you outfit just by accessorizing the right way.
It’s officially autumn and like the leaves it’s time to change. New Yorkers are putting away all the summer clothes, dusting their coats but I refuse to let go of summer. For these look I am wear my H&M mustard (hey it’s a fall color) short shorts paired up with my Zara flower detailed shirt over a white Alexander Wang blazer giving the perfect look. Since mustard is a warm color it blends perfectly well with the white assembling a fall or summer look depending on the accessories. Not giving up on summer I whore my Nordstrom mirrored aviators to go with the sunny vibe, I am not ready for the winter and in New York winter seems eternal. Holding tight to summer, I might even end up on the East coast.
Oficialmente llegó el otoño, y como las hojas, es tiempo de cambiar. Los New Yorkers ya están guardaron sus prendas de verano y están desempolvando sus abrigos, pero yo me rehuso a dejarlo ir… Para este look decidí usar mis shorts H&M color mostaza ( hey es un tono otoñal) que van perfecto con mi camisa de flores de Zara y mi blazer blanco Alexander Wang, logrando un look perfecto. Ya que el color mostaza es un tono cálido va excelente como look de otoño o de verano, dependiendo de los accesorios con los que lo combines. Sin rendirme aún con esta cálida estación, usé mis Nordstrom aviador tornasol para seguir con la onda veraniega, definitivamente no estoy listo para el invierno y aquí en New York el frío parece eterno…
Aferrado al verano, probablemente termine en la Costa Este.
After spotting the man bun all over #MBFW I decided to give it a try. Holding my hair in bun was the start to the whole outfit; wear my black unfitted size Givenchy dog tshirt with a pair of black ripped jeans from H&M was the perfect kick ass look. To accessorize my mirrored yellow aviators from Nordstrom and my Camper Together X Bernhard Willhelm sandals wear the perfect pop of color this black rock and roll look needed. My black Celine phantom bag was the essential piece and not for the reasons you think (jajaja) though I am obsessed with it the bag is the perfect size for this intense week. After all you might need a change of outfit!
Durante la semana de la moda en Nueva York descubrí las nuevas opciones de cabello para hombre. Así que decidí darle una oportunidad. Recogí mi pelo con un pequeño chongo alto para iniciar el outfit, me puse mi playera de Rottweiler de Givenchy con mis jeans rotos de H&M para lograr un increíble look rompedor. Los complementos ideales fueron mis aviadores amarillos de Nordstrom y mis sandalias Camper Together de Bernhard Willhelm, mezcla de colores ideal para lograr el look negro rock and roll que buscaba. My Celine panthom negra fue la pieza clave –y no por las razones que crees (jajaja)– sino porque estoy obsesionado con esta bolsa, que tiene el tamaño perfecto para una semana intensa.
Al final, seguramente vas a necesitar un cambio de outfit!
Getting prep for #MBFW is not an easy task, people have this misconception that one just wakes up in the morning and looks pretty. Well confession it’s completely the opposite and when it comes to put together your looks OMG chaotic. Luckily one day I was roaming around my neighborhood in the East Village and came across with this magnificent poncho from Rannoch Designs. Since I lay eyes on it I knew it would be a great statement for Fashion Week so I paired it up with a simple white tee from Zara and ripped jeans from TopMan. To accessorize I went for comfort with my Nike 2.0 runner shoes, on my head my Zadig & Voltaire black straw hat and my Chloé leather aviators giving the look a more street everyday wear to the poncho. To complement the outfit my Chanel boy bag was the perfect piece missing the contrast the mohair made with the chains was exquisite reminding me of Chanel’s last collection that had a touch of the Wild West.
Any man can live in color – MR NIEVES dares to live in print.
For my second day of #MBFW I wore this amazing print assemble from Mr. Nieves, an up and coming New Yorker designer that brought back his Puerto Rican roots. In his new collection we can see how colorful and perfectly tailored the pieces are. For this occasion I choose this black and white print top with a checkered pattern mix but the secret to not overdo it is by accessorizing wisely. In this look I am wearing a Proenza Schouler PS11 bag in a light tone to blend in with the heavy print, for my feet a pair of white sneakers from H&M giving a perfect balance of tones to the look. In my ankle I am wearing a navy blue handkerchief as a bracelet just to have fun with a different accessory and of course as most of the time in my eyes my Ray Bans. The black wayfarers go perfectly with the fit of the matching pieces making my outfit look fresh and clean especially during those hot September days.
