Leaf. Me. Alone.


As my poor orchid had shed its last bloom, I took a look out of the window to see that the leaves were turning a perfect array of amber and orange hues and the remnants of recent snowfall were darkening and melting under passersby's feet. I thought nothing more fitting to wear for a stroll than fashion's master of dark romanticism, Ann Demeulemeester.

Deep in thought along the trails, I realized the irony of recent December conversations ... whether joyfully counting down the days to disconnecting our workplace tethers in order to join family and friends for year-end celebrations, or, nearly throwing those same electronic devices filled with spam of overwhelming holiday cheer ... at some point during the holiday season we all just want to scream: leave me alone. And on this beautiful fall/winter day I found the perfect tree under which to do just that, naturally in #allblackeverything.

'Tis the season!


Silver Fox


Being smartly dressed for the weather doesn't always mean nylon.
Gray skies don't demand melancholic garb.
And, suiting doesn't have to be uptight!

This Jil Sander wool suit and French cuff shirt combine two of my design loves: minimalism and gray. And dare I add, style and function? 

This suit was made to match the monochromatic winter landscape and dropping mercury. And the shirt, shown unbuttoned, took me from office-appropriate to after-hours ready ... albeit that after-hours was a nature walk. That's where the Marc Jacobs hat and custom, silver fox fur came in handy.

Cheers to a handsome fall/winter!
