All Comme'd Out

I was in Bangkok over the weekend and here's one great thing about the city - Comme Des Garçons just opened a beautiful and very white boutique. Also, the prices are slightly cheaper than Hong Kong and Singapore.

Here are some of the items I picked up:

Play button down long sleeved shirt which I've wanted since forever.

Fun socks from CDG Homme Plus. What's Comme Des Garçons without the polka dots, right?

Have a Muji Summer

Everywhere I go, I see nautical influences in a lot of the clothes for spring and summer. This henley-style striped shirt is my top pick.

These tote bags are perfect for lugging around your stuff. They work whether you're at the beach or exploring a new city.

Espadrilles and boat shoes - nothing says summer quite like these two pairs.

Dreaming of Rio

I've been quite obsessed with Brazil lately, particularly Rio de Janeiro, thanks to Monocle's city survey which appears in the current issue.

To satiate my Rio obsession, I purchased the Muji BGM 13. It contains songs perfect for those instances when I feel like I want to be transported to Ipanema beach, while sipping a caipirinha and living the carioca life.

Click on the links below to sample some of the tracks which appear on the CD.

Até Amanhã

J.Crew X Monocle

Last Thursday, I visited the J.Crew website to check out the new offerings they had in store. Imagine my surprise when I saw the men behind Monocle sporting the new spring collection.

There was also a very informative Q&A with each member of the team and it makes for a very interesting read. Click here to check it out. In the meantime, here are some photos. Enjoy!
