"It’s baffling how Alexander Wang is able to keep such a momentum with his projects and collaborations. He currently designs his namesake line for men, women, home and “objects”, his T by Alexander Wang line, Balenciaga and various other collaborations, from Beats by Dre to H&M. His collection with H&M was hugely successful, from the star studded fashion show filled with celebrities and instagram royalty to a complete instagram feed take over leading up to the launch (Remember the editorial we did with Randa Salloum of The-Unprecedented [ Look 1234 and video ]." 
~ Josh Langston

““I’m not dictating what that message is exactly. The interesting part is to see how people interpret it, and what they have to say about it. Of course, there are going to be people who disagree with it.” – Alexander Wang

I LOVE DENIM AND I AM SO THRILLED IT IS IN THE FOREFRONT OF FASHION. Here are my favourite looks from the looks provided.
I bought my first pair of jeans in the 70's in Bellingham, Washington at Fred Meyer!  Levis 501's Botton fly Redlines for only $15!!!! Now they're what? Approximately $200 new and can range up to $3000 for the originals in it's used and worked in fashion. Since then, it's ONLY been jeans for me. Now, you can dress it up and not feel out of place.

"...After eight years in business it was like a new-start for him. With his menswear S/S 2016 Doma introduced his design codes. The collection featured relaxed, flowing silhouettes in black, cream, dark red, blue, blushed pink, grey and sage green. Tops like deconstructed coats, tunics, soft tailored blazers, arty-patchwork knits and boxy shirts were paired with roomy trousers and shorts or straight leg trousers with a drop-crotch and amethyst pendants."
My absolute favourite. There were actually a few more, but I narrowed it down to these. I'll leave it up to you to enjoy...or hate. I really appreciate his eye for colour and his vision of minimalism.

Calvin Harris - Sweet Nothing ft. Florence Welch / CALVIN HARRIS FOR EMPORIO ARMANI FALL/WINTER 2015 AD CAMPAIGN PHOTOGRAPHED BY LACHLAN BAILEY ~MIKE KAGEE FOR WORLD FASHION TRENDS www.mikekageetrendbureau.com

http://stylediary1.blogspot.ca/2015/07/calvin-harris-for-emporio-armani.html
 In my opinion, Armani always gets it right. Subtle details creating modern cuts, and always keeping loyal to the modern man. What I love so much is that it's never absurd or foolish. It's classic, with the edge that I like.  #Alwaysthefrontrunnerwithmenswear 

Again...just me. ;D



My Deighton Cup...orleans-dance with me [lyrics]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jniYhg8il_c
Had a wicked time at the Deighton Cup! Like I said it was my first time and I feel honoured to be invited this year. Thank you, Crystal Carson and Steven Schelling. The event was exactly what I thought it would be and bit more! The energy can sometimes take you into another era, or another world,. for that matter. I may sound as though I making a big deal about it, but really...a very happy and cool vibe. I really enjoyed it. There were times when I thought of my grandfather, my "Lolo". He loved to go there. I can only remember really only going a couple times, but I guess that's all it took. :D

Anyway, I took a few photos, so I thought I would share. Enjoy, and please share! ...if you want. ;) !

The Chemical Brothers - 'Go' (Claude Von Stroke Remix) ...SICK!!!! / Vivienne Westwood 2016 Spring Summer Mens Runway ~ www.denimjeansobserver.com

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91XvDdeCRIU ..some old school beats!!!!
"Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler showcased their 2016 Spring Summer Mens Runway Catwalk Looks during Milano Moda Uomo in Milan Italy hosted by the Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana. From the presentation, we selected only the top fashion forward styles and our favorite pieces." - See more at: http://www.denimjeansobserver.com/mag/2015/07/24/vivienne-westwood-2016-spring-summer-men-milan-moda-uomo-fashion-italy-knit-mesh-stripes-tropical-drawstring-androgyny-denim-jeans-observer/#sthash.c7jJQPT7.dpuf

WOW! What a brilliant collection. Very clever styling, remarkable details...very Westwood, but not as cray as I thought it would be! I absolutely love these looks. These are the looks that worked for me.
Very simple and easy. Fresh and light, perfect for the weather we have been enjoying in Vancouver.

I chose these images for the look on the RIGHT. I want those pants! Pair that with the jacket on the left...then work your own magic. That's what I would do.

Somethings working and I don't know why? You know I have to comment on those sandals on the right?! #OMG PERFECTION. ...if only....

ONLY the first look, for me. I love it when such a mix of patterns work, although the styling is what MADE this look appealing. I believe in silhouettes, and for men it should always be proportionate and appropriate.
#SANDALS!!!!!

BELOW.
I'm loving the second look. A bit inspired by my day today! ;D

"...while softness and lightness is all about extra-light weight styles, and luxury is seen through the best quality fabrics (innovative mix of wool, silk and cashmere)." ~ Leo

I bought my first suit. I'm a fashion blogger and I have never owned a suit. I am going to The Deighton Cup, here in my beautiful Vancouver and a suit will be needed! It will be the first time I have ever attended and I am so looking forward to it! So, I am in SUIT MODE! 
After going through these looks, I feel a need to give this 'suit' thing a chance. The photography is brilliant and these looks...wow. So sexy. I never thought mixing plaid can look so good!
These are my ABSOLUTE favourites from a very decadent collection. Enjoy. ;D
