Kenzo Fall 2015 Men's - visually so damn good (as expected), I just had to share.
I got to follow this collection on Instagram - my first time primarily following a collection this way. It was a very easy going, interesting experience so big thanks to the editors covering it, especially.
My first thought was 'wow, hello London-in-the-seventies-punk' which went to a place of fantasy, space odyssey. It was a bit random. Random with a great flow to it. Collection features strong outerwear, parkas, sweaters; a variety of colors spread out throughout. And as usual with Kenzo: superb styling. Perfection in layering, matching these pieces I don't think just anyone would think gos.The accessories, my favorite part of viewing the men's collections, because really, they are even more fun to shop. The heavy boots, with those oversized stitches... Coolest ever. Thoughts? xx
I'm in Miami! Finally! And yes, the weather is slightly cooler than the norm due to the harsh winter up north, but it's still good enough to walk down Ocean Drive in shorts and a tee.
Shorts and a tee though - it's so easy to look sloppy like this, I mean, it can happen without you even trying! It's sunny, and you're on the beach. A tiny bit of sweat can actually ruin your look, which is why it's so important to choose the right tee, and the right short. Also remember this vital rule: no flip flops.
For some this may sound funny, I know. But growing up in this weather makes you start seeing this as a challenge... excepted.
Jess Hart does it so right - here's how to get her look:
(just a reminder: first option is affordable VS. second option is designer/inspirational)
Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce Gal Halfon (@GalHalfon1), a brilliant fashion designer from Tel Aviv. Gal hosted an amazing event + collection viewing which I sadly had to miss, but I stopped by the next morning for coffee and my own personal collection viewing. The meeting ended up lasting a few hours, as it's so easy to get lost in Gal's clothes - and it helps that Gal herself is such a joy to spend time with.
Here are my favorite looks from the collection:
See? Told you so. The clothes are gorgeous. My favorite piece ever being a forest green sweatshirt, it had the coolest quilted details and it is so comfortable, cozy, yet acceptable to wear anywhere. You can dress it up and down equally as easy. I also love the colors in this collection, so winter appropriate but not at all dark! They are all so rich and elegant. The silhouette is easy going, effortless but still so poised and classy - classicly Gal! They are the easy kind of clothes to wear, the ones you throw on and then still rake in the compliments. Basically, the best kind of clothes; in the sense of every piece is so adaptable to your personal style, you're able to wear that same dress to work, on a date, and to an evening event and be the best dressed each and every time.
As a part of her lifestyle, Gal also sells the best Voluspa candles. I mean, THE BEST.
The Gal Halfon boutique is in the heart of the new Sarona neighborhood of Tel Aviv, a once German Templer colony in the late 1800's which today has been renovated into a lovely higher end outdoor shopping center. Go on, spend a Friday afternoon there. It's so lovely. Each boutique has the original architecture, it's absolutely awesome. And Gal's boutique definitely doesn't disappoint. She actually told me a bit about what it's like having a boutique in such an ancient building - it's not simple, but so worth it.
And if I didn't sell you on stopping by at this point, let me tell ya this: the changing room is actually a little, pink circus tent. It's too cute. Please see picture below.
I know I've been talking about this forever, but by the time this post goes up, I'll in en route to Miami! I won't go on any more about how excited I am, but without doubt, I NEED a vacation. If it takes me longer to reply, it's because I'm 7 hours behind my usual time zone. And if you notice a bit less posts, it's because I'm spending too much time poolside. Apologies in advance. Happy days, y'all.
