Inspirations for NYFW- Menswear F/W 2019

New York Fashion Week is only a few days away. The fashion world is running on adrenaline, coffee and lack of sleep as all the preparations are under way to present the Fall/Winter 2019 collections. For most the collections start with a sketch, an idea, a location or even time period. Here are a few of those inspirations and quotes from some of my favorite designers and some new names you should have on your radar.

Brand/Designer name:  Chan Chit Lo
Inspiration: Inspired by the work of Frank Meadow, this season, we celebrate the fishermen from the 19th century. Chan Chit Lo conveyed the spirit of the Fisherman and the scenery of their daily life to the collection, from the tools they use for work to the sense of harbor. Chan Chit Lo use of piles of yarn, recycled fabric and unwanted garments and transform it into luxury textile design, through her hand-craft. She believes the vision of luxury is creating craftsmanship from faults, flawed and imperfect materials.

Brand/Designer name: KA WA KEY Designers: Key Chow & Jarno Leppanen
Inspiration: KA WA KEY explores hedonism and reworks everyday streetwear with the designers’ roots of the Asian and Scandinavian aesthetics. Re-imagining traditional textile crafts and applies them on considered signature streetwear, with an unusual balance of high-concept, accessibility wearability, simplicity and soft romantic masculinity. KA WA KEY believes beauty of twinks.

Brand/Designer name: David Hart
Inspiration: A minimalist wardrobe

Brand/Designer name: Son Jung Wan
Inspiration: The women's and men's Fall 2019 collection is full of unconventionally mixing of faux fur, checkered prints, flowered prints, embroidered fabrics, sequins, and velvet, that have bold color to create a romantic mood full of playfulness.

Brand: Descendant of Thieves
Inspiration: Love Thy Neighbor, But Dress Like Yourself. We find inspiration in the individualism of New Yorkers— fewer judgements and an openness to people who celebrate personal style. It’s about respectfully living amongst others but truly being yourself.

Brand/Designer name: Krammer & Stoudt
Inspiration: Krammer & Stoudt presents the Autumn/Winter 2019 Collection, inspired by the iconoclastic figure of Don Van Vliet (Captain Beefheart), a cult hero of the California psychedelic/desert rock scene of the late 60's and early 70’s. Expanding with that catalyst, the collection incorporates style elements of the era of rock music between 1969-1974 specifically, with an emphasis on the culture of the Sunset Strip and the wide open spaces of Joshua Tree, CA.

Harsh Winter Must-Have Grooming Products

In the last couple of weeks temperatures have drastically changed from 16 degrees that feel like -10 degrees to the mid 50s. With that said, we have to be vigilant in taking care of ourselves. Sadly, I started the new year with strep throat that required 10 days worth of antibiotics. We need to take care of ourselves internally and externally. Below are some of my favorite new finds to combat this harsh winter.

 From top to bottom:

V76 Smooth Shave Cream- This is the perfect size to pack in a carry-on. The weight of the cream is nice and light and with the essentials the blade just glides.

Kiehl's Age Defender Power Serum- Time is not on our side. Fortunately, Kiehl's Age defender line is on our side. This bottle is almost empty. Need I say more?

Duluth Trading Knuckle Wax- These guys are known for their sturdy apparel and ultra comfortable underwear. They are delving in to the men's grooming arena with some heavy hitters. This season has been really cold and dry in NYC. This knuckle wax does the trick.

Oars + Alps Power Cleansing face stick- This is another one of my travel essentials. You just have to roll on the face wash directly from the stick and rinse.

Base Light Essential Face Moisturizer- This line is new too brought to us by Bespoke Post! You must check out the rest of their line. Love the clean lines of the packaging and of course the product itself.

Duluth Trading Hand Lotion- So good I also had to include in this review. Plot twist- smells woods. It does not feel greasy when applied and the scent is not strong. All good things in my book.
