New York Street Style: Crisp Individualistic Street Look

See this New Yorker's retro and hip individualistic take on the upcoming Spring fashion season as he puts together a copy-worthy black and white look

His graphic top serves as his subtle attraction piece while the rest of his look is balanced out in cool blacks with rugged denims, gold-rimmed Aviators, slouching beanie and leather chunky boots. 

What do you think of his look?

NYFW: Taoray Wang

Taoray Wang is officially my new obsession- and favorite designer!

The sleek, chic and ultra-feminine designs of Chinese fashion designer, Wang Tao donned a  marvelously elegant collection at New York Fashion Week on February 16th at Lincoln Center.

The ready-to-wear line showcased an assortment of uniformed wear. The first half of the collection exhibiting dark grey, black and maroon tones by virtue of rectangular silhouettes whilst the second half illustrated a "posh" and sophisticated and soft take on military greens with fur accents. The third, and most distinct part of the collection, demonstrated the brand's classic effeminate portrait with a quirky twist along purple-hued polka dots.

The jackets were the focal point of this entire collection, however. Each compact jacket displayed each their own texture, from plaid and tweed woven stitches to wool and knit. The different range of fabric textures served as statement samples and demonstrated the brands progressive take on fashion and clothing.

See all of the modern looks from the show, below!

NYFW: Custo Barcelona

Spanish fashion line, Custo Barcelona, showcased his Fall 2015 ready-to-wear collection at New York Fashion Week on February 15th at the Salon at Lincoln Center.

The impressive collection featured many of the brand's well-known graphic and printed print fabrics ranging from cotton, woven, tweed fabrics. The "Aztec" influence in the collection was also represented in the two fishtail braids that all of the models wore. Custo Barcelona is undeniably a brand that gets it right when it comes to patterns.
