How Many Can You Find!?

Soo if you’ve been staying up with my blog, you know I like to look beyond the outfit. Instead of just looking at the ensemble… I listen to what the person or designer is saying about trends, colors, silhouettes, textures, etc.  

So ::SM:: subscribers… what are some trends you can pull out of this streetwear outfit!? I want to hear your style review!

Ready…GO!

The Steeler Twins head to the Superbowl!

24 Jan

Twins?!

Mike Tomlin…. and Omar Epps…

One played with heart and the other played for  his heart! But none the less – these two men look so identical they had to have been separated at birth! I don’t know … Pappa may have been a rolling stone…haha

How have these twins contributed to fashion you ask???

Mike has introduced a new colorway to our wardrobes (you know what it is): “Black and Yellow, Black and Yellow”.

And Omar has shown us that comfort is a new trend – from ‘House’ scrubs to b-ball shorts, it’s all about having an outfit that’s mobile!

Either way these two young men are truly penetrating their industries!

Keep on winning SuperBowls Mike and we certainly know who’s playing YOU on the big screen!

You are greatness already happening!

Getting down to the Button!

I was scanning some European photos taken by Tommy Ton and came across this one! The jacket is dope! However – was it so cold that he just-so-happened to fasten it on the wrong button or is this the look that he was going for?

We need a poll for this! Let me know what you think, so we can get down to the bottom of the button.

Oh and don’t forget … You are greatness already happening! Look forward to your reviews!

Happy 116th Birthday Balenciaga!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BALENCIAGA! :)

116 years ago, a fashion mogul was born! January 21, 1895 began the beginning of Cristobal Balenciaga life of impact. He lived to the great age of 77 before passing; but his legacy, craft, and inspiration for designers internationally has been well out-lived.

When we were more concerned about barbies and the ice cream trucks – This spanish-french designer began to seriously study dressmaking at the  age of 10! With a deceased father and a widowed mother – he stepped up (AT AGE 10) to help support the family by sewing!

His first trip to Paris at age 15 inspired him to become a couturier, and by age 20 he had his own dressmaking establishment at the fashionable summer resort of San Sebastián in Spain.(www.britannica.com).

With an impeccable eye for detail and sophistication, Balenciaga has transformed modern looks into highly sought after pieces. Known as the architect of haute couture – He is what gives designers the foundation they need to continue to live out to their fullest potential.

Try to catch his exhibit before its over!

November 19, 2010 – February 19, 2011

The “Balenciaga: Spanish Master” Exhibition at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York, Open .

I encourage you to read up on him as well as flick through some of his collections from the previous seasons. He is quite the innovator and certainly knows how to spearhead the trend report!

Just as Balenciaga…

you are greatness already happening!
