The fellas at GQ have really done a great job covering fashion week, so much so that I really don’t feel like I have much to contribute beyond what they are doing. I did however take a little video at the Rag & Bone show this past Friday that turned out pretty nice (if I don’t say so myself). With that said, I think it would be worth seeing here on ACL. I took the video with my Leica D-Lux 4 camera and the music from the show didn’t record very well (as it was so loud), so I added in something on my own. Hope the Rag & Bone people don’t mind. The collection looked really nice and it was a lot of what we have been seeing throughout NYFW. Chunky knits, Fair Isle patterns, layers, camo, sweatpants. See for yourself.
The similarities between the men’s accessories company Makr and the Kentucky bourbon of a similar name are not lost me — both are distinctly American and each are made with care in small batches. Over the past year, Makr has built up a substantial following for its line of bags and leather goods. Recently, I had a chance to chat with the company’s designer and founder Jason Gregory about the burgeoning brand.
Over the weekend I stumbled upon some great pictures of the new RRL store in East Hampton. Ralph Lauren must have decided that it wanted everyone of its brands to have a presence in the Hamptons. First we saw a new Rugby store and now this RRL outpost. The new RRL store looks typical Ralph, which is to say amazing. I love the denim, khakis and the woven shirts. The new store has some great home goods and of course some casual offerings for your relaxing weekends in the Hamptons.
