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!
There was a time when people stuck to the rule that white clothing was only “allowed” between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This was summertime, after all, a time for picnics, barbecues and a general carefree way of life. Some called it a Don’t once or even twice but for this winter wearing white will be a must. After spotting the off-whites trend quite a bit all over the runway it seemed pretty obvious that this was going to be the upcoming look. Since it’s for winter we definitely need a coat and to keep the winter wonderland tones a camel coat is the perfect element to go with the all-white outfit. For my look I decided to wear my Just Cavalli white denim with a gray two tone French Connection thermal under a simple white Tee from DKNY and doing the all-white look by adding my high rise kicks from Sandro. To complete the look a camel robe like coat from The Reformation and in the accessory department having my hair pulled back in a man bun added a posh aesthetic mixing elegance with a bohemian touch. The brown leather aviators from Chloé where a perfect match to white and brown (camel) color story as for my Louis Vuitton duffle bag had the exact colors needed to complete the look. The brown and camel LV iconic pattern went perfectly with the vibe and color scheme of the whole outfit. So if you are of the people who wonder why is it bad to wear white after Labor Day. The truth is that few people know the exact logic behind this antiquated fashion “law.” There seems to be no explanation, but what can be agreed upon is that it’s a rule that can now be put to bed.
Hubo un tiempo en que la gente se quedó con la idea de que vestir de blanco era lo único “permitido” entre Memorial Day y Labor Day. Esto era verano después de todo, época de picnics, barbacoas y en general un ambiente relajado. Algunos dicen No, pero para este invierno digan lo que digan vestir de blanco es un must. Después de ver los trends en las pasarelas, era obvio que la tendencia que se veía venir era esta. Como es invierno, definitivamente vamos a necesitar un abrigo, y para mantener los tonos invernales que mejor que un abrigo color camello, perfecto para combinar con un look completamente blanco. Para mi look decidí usar mis jeans Just Cavalli blancos con un termal de French Connection en tono gris abajo de una simple playera DKNY y mis tenis de Sandro. Para completar el look usé una túnica camello de The Reformation y como accesorio me recogí el pelo con un pequeño chongo que añadió una mezcla de elegancia con un toque bohemio. Los aviadores de cuero café de Chloé fueron la pareja perfecta del blanco y el café (mejor conocido como camello) colores exactos que mi bolsa de Louis Vuitton tiene, necesarios para completar el look. El patrón icónico café y camello LV iba perfecto con la vibra y combinación de colores del outfit. Así que si eres de las personas que se preguntan por qué es malo vestir de blanco después de Labor Day, la verdad es que pocas personas conocen la lógica exacta detrás de esta anticuada moda. No parece haber ninguna explicación, pero la conclusión es que es una regla que ahora puedes dejar atrás.
“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.
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.
A simple v neck t-shirt is now an essential piece in every closet and following today’s trends, the quoted t-shirts look like they might stay for a while. For this relaxed look I wore my Zadig and Voltaire #ISHOULDHAVEBEENACOWBOY t-shirt and pair it with my black skinny jeans from Joe Fresh. To accessories the outfit and give it a little color my Camper Together X Bernhard Willhelm sandals. For my head lest play a little with the quote a black straw panama fedora hat from Paul Smith as if it had a little cowboy look to it (jajaja not really) my Valentino orange camouflage wallet and to protect me from the sun my black wayfarer sunglasses from Ray-Ban. Making my outfit look effortless, comfortable, and fresh for the nice weather New York has given us this past couple of days!!
