GQ MEN, the book
To “be GQ” is so much more than just being outwardly fashionable, it also means to be cultured, to have taste, to have panoramic interests, from politics, art, and literature to film, music, travel, and of course fashion. It’s about being a part of the cultural moment—actively engaging in the here and now with curiosity and an appetite for what’s new.

This week I doubled-up on the book signing shindigs: first with Leandra Medine (Man Repeller) and Simon Doonan at Barney’s CO-OP and two days later with Jonathan Adler, Domaine and Simon Doonan celebrating the expansion of the JA store on Melrose Ave. Double Doonan in one week — say what?!
Also hung out at the gym, snacked on low calorie ice cream, worked, worked again, worked one more time, and then attended a private preview of the Tommy Hilfiger S/S 2014 collection at the Chateau Marmont. So there you have it…my Instagram week in review.

J. Crew Fall/Winter 2013 Collection
Frank Muytjens‘ latest jaunt was not so much a reinvention of J.Crew, as much as it was a refinement of the things the label does best. The on-trend athletic influences percolated through the Fall/Winter 2013 collection by way of slim, collegiate-style sweatshirts in bursts of mustard, red, rust and bright blue, juxtaposing the collection’s neutral tones. Building on the label’s staples of outerwear and suiting were heftier and masculine fabrics like tweed and Black Watch plaid. Muytjens also included a new silhouette in the Ludlow Fielding and incorporated exquisite menswear staples like double-breasted coats, double-monk strap shoes and Fair Isle knits.

Gypsy Junkies Luncheon
Last week, Gypsy Junkies hosted a private luncheon for select media, stylists and celebs to preview the new Fall 2013 collection. I’m quite fond of attending shindigs like these because not only do I get up-close-and-personal with the collections, but I also get to catch up with old friends like Sydne Summer (Sydne Style) and make new ones like Kimmy Erin (stylist to Katherine Heighl) who sat next to me during the runway show and Deniz Senkan (Le Fashion Monster) who shared anecdotes of her style evolution as a graduate student.
The intimate French-inspired setting was a perfect compliment to the collection and it featured a light lunch, an open bar, and of course, lots of Gypsy swag.

Diesel+EDUN: Studio Africa
Africa continues to make a presence in the world fashion. The continent has provided endless inspiration for designers, celebrities and virtually anyone who has come in contact with its beauty.
Furthermore, EDUN, Bono’s fashion brand that transports positive change through its trading relationship with Africa, teamed up with Diesel for a 25-piece capsule collection called Diesel+EDUN. Each piece from the line is crafted from Ugandan cotton and manufactured entirely in Africa — a feat, that for most brands, has never been done before.
In celebration of this phenomenal collaboration and movement, Diesel+EDUN hosted STUDIO AFRICA, an outdoor BBQ at Ron Herman with a very special live performance by Solange.

Items of Desire
Alexander Wang Objects
Alexander Wang’s trek into the lifestyle arena started last February with an eight-piece ensemble of objects boasting leather-bound notebooks, matte black playing cards, and smoked glass ashtrays. The designer’s fascination with home products has always been apparent, expressing “If I can’t start with the couch, at least I can start with the coaster.”
The designer makes his way further into a lifestyle brand with the second installment of his Objects collection — a curation of personal items that fit into the stylings of a gothic grunge home. Also known as, my apartment. This collection features an eclectic array of chic and functional lifestyle accessories in the usual dark and premium Wang aesthetic.
Both collections are a standout. My favorite objects are the matte black dominos, the leather eye mask which is the ultimate accessory for traveling in style, and the black crock notebook is a must for the modern business men.
