I used to have this jacket but not in Gucci years ago like 8 years ago to be exact and this is a streetwear piece but it has that luxurious quilted black leather look that Chanel is known for. I told my mom to bring my jacket out of the basement but I think my jacket was a little big if I do recall. This one here goes for $4900 retail @ MrPorter.com. The women are also getting in with this style of jacket as well as seen above in Europe. The one that I own looks more like hers.
Different shades of blue are popping up all over the place and you're not supposed to wear matching blues the contrast of them is the new look and I'm digging it. This peak lapel double breasted jacket and pants suit in a cashmere blend by Gucci is available now @ MrPorter.com for $2950.
Vans and Sperrys are my go-to shoes for my everyday shoe so these new J. Crew exclusive Vans Authentic Sneakers are on my must-have list due to their simple styling and contrast yellow/brown laces. Available now @ JCrew.com for $50.
Fast fashion is where it's at right now due to the struggling economy but it's looking up for the higher end company's as well because they are all experiencing an increase in sales. J. Crew went from $4 million in sales to an astonishing $15 million this past year. Anywho, H&M does very well and has been for years due to it's great team of designers that makes pieces like these shown above. They belong to the new Spring/Summer 2012 collection. They are all reasonably priced (not one of them are over $30!) and available now @ an H&M nearest you. And of course not every store has the same pieces so you might have to go on a little search.
If you didn't know by now that prints are in then it is my job to let you know this imperative information... PRINTS ARE IN!!! These pants are more than just pants they are a work of art. Pre-order @ RevolveClothing.com for $250.
These two new Sperrys for the ladies in Sea Blue, Coral and Pink Seersucker caught my attention right away! The tasseled laces adds some cool flare to an already great looking shoe. Available now @ SperryTopsider.com for $75.
This Scuba Bomber Jacket from Balenciaga is one of my favorite Spring 2012 pieces in a dark and light aqua color combination that'll look so sick with a plain pair of khaki chinos and/or dark or light denim. Available now @ MatchesFashion.com for $1157.
Opening Ceremony's newest Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection Lookbook is so on-point that I literally almost picked every single look for this post (I think I left out like 1 that I didn't like!). I love the military influence on this collection and as well as that heritage outdoorsy mixed with prep look that's been around for a while now. That is definitely the lane that I hope men's fashion stays in.
Baseball jackets are one of my favorite spring items and has been since I was like 3 or 4 years young! Now this one here from Thom Browne looks like a combination of baseball jacket mixed with the classic Baracuta jacket from the UK. Such a great design! Available now @ Restir.com.
Well if you haven't noticed red is really in right about now and Vogue gets it right with this beautiful cover featuring Jennifer Lopez shot by Mert and Marcus. I love the aqua blue background of the cover! Here she is looking incredible in red once again above for the editorial spread. God bless her for aging so well! There's a lot of Jennifer's getting posted today lol!
