Malan Breton FW 2018 NYFW

Renowned for his innate theatricality and artistic flavor, Malan Breton delivers a collection with depth, soul and literary references. Inspiration derived from Edwardian Tarot, Merlin, Chinese astrology and The myth of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. The four riders are seen as symbolizing Conquest, War, Famine, and Death.

“This collection, has been a journey of self-realization, a point of gaining ones hope back in humanity. Rebuilding one's shell, one’s armor, one’s heart. Love lost, valor, and watching gluttony, and greed change humanity for the worst” explains Malan Breton.

Malan’s work echoes his deepest personal preoccupations. With that this fighting collection was built with the structure of strength in mind. Calculated decadence, rendered in a split between strong and seductive; the epitomization of femininity.

Staying true to his Asian roots, opulent color and exotic Swarovski embellishment reaches its apotheosis in this hair-raising debouch of pieces. All mastered by antique Asian techniques of weaving, embroidery and dying.

Fabrics used are all things chinoiserie-inspired; silk organza, silk tulle, silk brocade, reimagined kimono fabrics specially woven as well as Chinese brocades. Toughened by shearling, leather, tweed, Angora, feathers, glass beading and tourmaline. Malan sticks with his sustainable elements of recycled bottles created into paillettes.

Not for the faint hearted, this collection stands firm for battle.

David Hart Spring 2018 Menswear

David Hart Spring 2018 Menswear

David Hart took you to Cuba for Spring 2018 Menswear. Or, his idealized and romanticized interpretation of what the Havana traveler would wear. [Reality check] no one would wear this in the spring because it's too hot and too humid - all day and night. Late Fall through winter is better and you would really only wear this collection in Old Havana, el Vedado and perhaps Veradero (says this Cuban.) Don't get me wrong, I am a David Hart fan and would love many of these looks, especially the tuxes! I just wouldn't wear them to Cuba.

The Alton Lane Experience

My Alton Lane experience began with a bourbon on the rocks and a friendly conversation with Alton Lane style expert Calvin Fields. I learned that we would be alone for the fitting because Alton Lane operates by appointment only. There's much to be said about 100% undivided attention. It's all about you at Alton Lane.

Before taking measurements, Calvin and I chose the specifics of [my] shirt. Everyone can be a designer at Alton Lane - [you] choose the textile, print, collar spread, pocket - no-pocket, cuff style, you name it! And if it gets a little overwhelming making so many decisions, no worries because Calvin knows his "stuff" and will guide you all the way. Two special features that are included with their service is the option to choose an accent fabric for the inside of your cuffs and the embroidering of your initials.

Now it was time for the fitting. Alton Lane handles your measurements in three different ways for maximum accuracy. Their clothing will truly fit you impeccably. Calvin took my measurements the traditional way, with a measuring tape. Then we went high-tech, for real! Alton Lane uses a 3D body scanner that takes your measurement, head-to-toe. You stand still for 30 seconds and allow the camera's to do its thing. Lastly, just to back all this up, I put on a sample shirt. This allowed Calvin to take even more precise measurements for the best, most custom fit possible.

My shirt will be ready in about two weeks or so. I'll return to Alton Lane (in the afternoon so I can enjoy another bourbon) and Calvin will conduct one final fitting.

Most of us shop off the rack. I promise you, nothing compares to custom tailored clothing. If you're thinking this is a luxury outside your realm, check out the Alton Lane website and think again! 

Book an appointment with Calvin Fields (888.800.8616)... start with a shirt, play it safe if you wish... but you'll be hooked and move up to a suit or tuxedo next.


The 67th Emmys RED CARPET

The 67th Primetime Emmy Awards delivered a glam-worthy red carpet! Like the Oscar's red carpet last February where all the celebs were so polished, the Emmys did not disappoint with many more fashion hits than misses. The red carpet brought a lot of glamorous variety by way of strapless, off the shoulder, one shoulder, sheers, trains, sequins, vibrant color, pattern, solids, body con, flowing and plenty of tuxedos, including on some of the ladies.  (Photos: Getty Images)


Fashion Moves: So You Think You Can Dance Finale!

It was a black tie finale at So You Think You Can Dance. The ladies were glam, but the guys really pulled out all the stops, especially Jason and Travis in Dolce & Gabbana and Armani tuxedos. Nigel's Ralph Lauren pants could have fit better but I'll give him a pass since his Tallia Orange blazer was smashing.

Last night, Team Street’s Gaby Diaz was crowned “America’s Favorite Dancer.” The prize package includes $250,000, the cover of Dance Spirit Magazine, and the opportunity to perform in Jennifer Lopez’s exciting new residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. 

Celebrating its momentous 12th season and its exciting new Stage v. Street format, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE’s Top 10 Finalists will make their way across North America performing in 70 cities as part of the SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE Season 12 Tour. Routing information can be found on
