Roisin Murphy in Gareth Pugh

I've said it before and I'll say it again. No one can pull off Gareth Pugh's designs better than singer/fashion icon/all around awesome person Roisin Murphy. Here she is wearing an outfit from Pugh's S/S 09 collection at the Christian Dior show.

The many faces of Maggie Cheung

She's very beautiful, don't you think?

In the Mood for Love by Wong Kar Wai

It has been several years since I last saw this film. Watching it tonight made me realize there are still so many things I've missed out on. I learn something new every time I watch it.

From the desk of...

Whenever you're slaving away at work, did you ever think of what it would feel like if you were working for, let's say one of the biggest department stores in the world? Or one of the coolest magazines around? And if ever you have, did you think about how your desk at work would look like? Well, imagine no more! One of the coolest blogs around, A Continuous Lean, has a regular section called "From the desk of...". Every so often, they feature the work desk of stylish guys and they're not always as tidy as you imagine them to be.

Boy by Band Of Outsiders


Obsession: Band Of Outsiders

I'm officially obsessed with Band Of Outsiders. Scott Sternberg's casual approach to gentlemanly fashion is something I appreciate. Pairing a suit with a casual shirt, bow tie, and boat shoes is...in one word, brilliant.

Mont Blanc Meisterstuck

The Mont Blanc Meisterstuck (aka entry level Mont Blanc, haha!) is my new favorite accessory. I just put it in my shirt pocket and that's all I need aside from my watch. This definitely adds a touch of class to an otherwise drab outfit.

Little Plants

Sexy Beijing

One of my favorite channels on YouTube is Sexy Beijing. It's sort of like a documentary hosted by a Jewish American girl, Sophie, and loosely based on the style of Sex and the City. She goes around the city and sometimes out of it to find out more about the lives of people in modern day China and to occasionally find Mr. Right. Sexy Beijing is a very interesting take on contemporary Chinese life and gives its viewers a whole new, often funny, perspective of the middle kingdom.

This is one of my favorite episodes entitled "Lost In Translation". Sophie goes around Beijing asking the locals what their English nicknames are and most of them will make you snicker.

Michael Kors S/S 2009

A very graphic collection from Michael Kors and there was a definite love for all things black and white. I'm not complaining, those are pretty much the only colors I wear.

Band Of Outsiders / Shipley and Halmos, S/S 2009

Band Of Outsiders

Shipley & Halmos

Some key trends from Fall 08 (bowties, plaid) have been carried over to Spring 09 as seen in the collections of Band Of Outsiders and Shipley & Halmos. The past seasons have all been about gentlemanly style and a complete throwback to the 1950's and early 60's and this will definitely continue on.

Band Of Outsiders churns out more variations on the classic boat shoe while Shipley & Halmos creates amazing colors for their plaid patterns. I look forward to the upcoming shows with anticipation and eagerness.
