Paris Couture: A Return to Volume

The recent Paris fall 2017 haute couture shows were a study in the post-Brexit EU zeitgeist. Clearly, the Parisian designers are feeling an exuberance that we might not have seen since post WW2.

Male Box: Lady in Red (Haute Couture)

February is national Women’s Heart Health month and, hopefully, all of you celebrated Wear Red Day on February 3rd. If not, you still have the rest of month to help raise awareness of this important issue and encourage the women in your lives – including yourself – to get heart screenings. For fashion types, the Red Dress Collection is the…

Male Box: The Long and Short of The LBD (Short Edition)

Short, when it comes to hemlines, is a relative term. Valentino Garavani famously said that “an evening dress that reveals a woman’s ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.” Thankfully, the same is not true of cocktail dresses and a woman’s knees. This season’s short LBDs range from right at the knee to slightly above to as high as you dare.

Male Box: The Long and Short of the LBD (Long Edition)

At this time of year, many women fret over what exactly to wear to big public charity galas and private holiday events. Many turn to their tried-and-true trusty Little Black Dress, but, as reliable as the LBD is, some women long for a new best friend. I thought I’d take a moment to give a primer on the LBD using the latest offerings from Saks Fifth Avenue to illustrate my point.

Male Box: London Calling

It’s official – I am totally UK obsessed – AGAIN! A month or so ago, I got a call from my former Editrix in Chief informing me that she and her husband are moving from London to San Diego. For the first leg of their move, they are sailing – with their dog – on the Queen Mary 2. He is a former Royal Marine and they met during Fleet Week in NYC. Could it be more Sex and the City?

That said, Fendi is an Italian brand designed by a German and Valentino was founded by an Italian who put the creative offices in Paris. Let’s take a peek at their looks for evening; you may even…

Paris In Springtime? Fall Is Where The Fashion Is!

As promised, here is another installment on my beloved HC (aka Haute Couture) featuring the Paris-based designers we all know and love. Chanel is often seen as the entry point to HC. The migration path for a Chanel customer goes something like this: Chanel No. 5 (Eau de Cologne), 2.55 bag in calfskin, Ready-to-wear skirt suit, Chanel No. 5 (Eau…

Male Box: Riviera Summer Chic Wedge Espadrilles

By now, you all know what a big fan I am of the Breton stripe sweater – indeed of French fashion in general. Nothing says Mediterranean summer more than the espadrille. This season, many of our favorite designers are bringing us the wedge espadrille. Although the spring Triple Crown season is over, the summer polo season is just getting under way and you’ll need you best defense against sinking into the grass.
