From Mind To Matter

Bottega Veneta is never one to let luxury fall by the wayside.  This is no different for their presentation of their S/S 2014 collection. Overall, a smarter approach has been taken showing that the brand definitely has an ear to the streets. 

It’s said often that designing is a lot of subtraction rather than addition to come out with an end result that is perfect. We see here that no ensemble is lacking in interest yet it flows so effortlessly.  With a focus on tailored suiting along the black-white spectrum and versatile top layering, there are endless options. 

A favorite is the easy plaid print that is a light spin on the brand’s classic stitch pattern – a more wearable form that will prove to be another way of recognizing the brand.  And when color is incorporated, it is done richly with deep hues taking over which is sure to bring a new sense to the S/S season of the approaching year.

Above and Beyond

Going over the top doesn’t have to be a bad thing. If anything at all, it is but a normal way of living and getting ahead. 

Here we see a couple of shots from Versace’s Fall/ Winter campaign.  Mert & Marcus of course were the gents behind the lens making Matt Trethe and Travis Smith the center of focus.  Against a clean slate, we are allowed to see the details that may have otherwise been lost or unappreciated.  As all goes, having the right attitude while donning the threads is all that matters.

A Simple Journey

A little trip around a familiar place can bring about a fresh perspective. At times, that perspective is inspired by a time of the past with the ongoing notion that the future is only preserved by reinforcing memories that are in danger of being forgotten.

Design being the manner in which different details come together- shapes, lines, pattern, and coordination, can only manifest itself by the influence of time.  Design can be brought forth at anyone’s beck and call.  All that matters is staying true, paying genuine homage and respect to the style you are emanating.

Basic Instinct

There are some days when it is not all about how much style you can pack on.  It doesn’t make you an average Joe to take it to a lighter side of the spectrum.

With colors that have vibrancy and coolness, H&M gives us basic options for the heat of summer.  Paired with dark denim or shorts, it’s impossible to get it wrong.
