Blood, Sweat, Tears….and Fashion | 2012 Olympic Games London

28 Jul

Yesterday marked the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London – a true honor for athletes across the world who have dedicated long hours and fought through blood, sweat, and tears to make standing in the Olympic Stadium possible. Though the attention may be turning to sports, fashion never seems to take a back seat! Vogue Magazine, did a cover shoot recognizing USA Olympic players in a unique fashion spread. However, this was no ESPN spread highlighting athletic brands like Nike, Jordan, and K-swiss – oh no! Vogue infused a little Bottega Venetta, Atelier Versace, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Oscar de la Renta and other couture fashion designs into the mix! Confused on how they made this work? Just see below how photographer Annie Leibovitz worked her magic… (she deserves a gold medal for this one!) Enjoy –>

3 Jul

Hey Guys! The 4th of July is a day to celebrate your independence! So as you independently take yourself to a pool party, BBQ or rooftop social – be sure to check your tags! Rather than showing up in your traditional red, white, and blue OLD NAVY tee and flip flops – Get International!

Men – here are a few options for you to still rock that Preppy-American look… by a designer that doesn’t speak it! GQ put together a nice head-to-toe collection of some great international brands: Bottega Venetta, Etro, Prada, Salvadore Ferragamo, Pierre Balmain, Luis Vuitton, Gucci, and more. Check it out!
