The past weekend I had the honor to be a guest of the Miami Design District down in Florida. Hopping on a plane to escape the inevitable cold settling in up here in New York, this invitation to Miami couldn’t have come at a better time. So I landed on Friday, in an obviously great mindset and was ready to take on the two days ahead of me, filled with design, photoshoots, lots of wonderful people and of course — high-end fashion. When we arrived at MDD every little corner was literally screaming “PHOTO OPP!!!” so creating content was the opposite of a challenge. Especially because (and this is the stuff dreams are made of) I had a dressing room with five racks of the most gorgeous pieces from Dior Homme, Lanvin, Givenchy, and LOEWE to make outfits, as well as accessories from the likes of Piaget and Tagheuer to finish the looks.
The first look, which you’ve already seen on Instagram, was my Dior Homme look. Achromatic, black and white, with prints and embellishments so unique and exquisite that every little detail purveys “Dior.” The window-pane on the suit jacket is created through a fine chain, the detailing on the flower print is so intricate, and even the shoe-laces have an almost 3-D effect, making these boots an absolute must-have.
The second look I put together was from Lanvin. Much more minimal, the luxury expressed through the choice of fabrics and the combination of them. I went for a sporty chic look with a paneled wool blazer and wool slacks, layering a striped sweater underneath the blazer.Beautiful in every detail. I also threw on another pair of kicks below, just because I couldn’t bear not wearing them.
With this varsity Givenchy bomber I went in a very sporty luxe direction, but kept it classy with a sleek white button-down shirt, and then went fully casually with the below LOEWE MAN outfit: an over-sized denim coat, suede pants, and a patch-work shirt.
