Your dad or husband might not exactly be a clothes horse, but in my experience, few men are immune to the charms of something nice once they have it. That makes Father’s Day (this Sunday–don’t forget!) the perfect opportunity to shine up someone’s wardrobe a little bit, and because the menswear market has expanded so much over the past few years, there are plenty of ways to do it, from simple and subtle to expensive and grand.
The much-loved, much-anticipated, and much-hated Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The transformation of Saint Valentine’s Day over many years has turned this holiday into a massive marketing monster–just pop into any store and you will be pummeled with Valentine’s Day food, drinks, gifts and date ideas.
We’ve brought you bountiful gift guides to help you shop for every single person and situation this holiday season, and I wanted to finish up by asking some of my favorite fashion insiders what’s on their wish lists this year.
I already showed you a few of my favorite perfect Gucci gifts for the season, and today I’m sharing more–a few items from Gucci just wasn’t enough. Gucci’s designs are as elegant and stylish as ever, and even at a luxury price point, the bags feel like a strong value because of the brand’s fine materials and craftsmanship.
If you grew up in the 80s or 90s, you probably had a Kipling bag at some point in your youth. The brand is famous for its lightweight nylon bags, and whether you used one to carry your books or one of the brand’s brightly printed crossbodies started your handbag collection all those years ago, the brand represents a fun point of bag nostalgia.
I just looked at the calendar and realized Christmas is only ten days away, even though Vlad and I have yet to get our Christmas tree (which is incredibly unlike us). The start of Hanukkah is tomorrow and Christmas will be here in ten sleeps, so suffice it to say this holiday season has crept up quickly.
I have a theory about people who work in fashion; there are two types of us. The first type are people for whom working in fashion only stokes their desire to shop; all of the beautiful things before them every day translate into inspiration for their own closets, and their seasonal wish lists are longer every year.
