From the Desk of… is a window into the world and workspace of some of ACL’s most stylish friends.
It has been more than a year since the last time installment of this series, one of ACL’s most popular. Up until two weeks ago I just wasn’t very inspired to ask anyone to participate. That was until I had a chat with Esquire Fashion Director Nick Sullivan during fashion week. Nick is an avid collector, eBay obsessive (like myself) and has such a great sense of style that he is the perfect fit for this series. Thankfully he was was willing to let me come by his office in the Hearst Tower and poke around for an hour or so and tell me all about all of the great things in his office. It is always a interesting experience to get a look into the creative environment of someone as cool and talented as Nick.
If you are a collector of obscure style books or Edwardian clothing, there is a good chance you are going head-to-head with Mr. Sullivan. The office houses more than a few examples of Nick’s eBay wins, plus a treasure trove of great other stuff and everything has a story. It’s no wonder Esquire (and the Big Black Book) looks as stylish as it does.
