Bespoke Post: Viscata Espadrilles

Hola Amigos! This month's Bespoke Post box item hails from the land of Spain. Viscata Sitges Espadrilles are my first pair of espadrilles and I 'm excited to try them out. That's one of the great things about Bespoke Post, the access to special authentic items you would normally not know where to get.

The espadrilles are handcrafted by Spanish artisans and made with a light weight cotton canvas upper and 100% jute sole to make these another great footwear option for the summer season. Espadrilles have been around for hundreds of years and a staple in the Mediterranean. Let's show them how it's done in this side of the pond.


How to Wear Men's Espadrilles Tips:

Where to wear them: Poolside, ocean side, farmer's market, anywhere chill
What to wear them with: shorts, swim trunks, khakis, rolled up jeans
When to wear them: as soon as it gets warm
Why wear them: Their classic, to replace the old flip flops, you're an adult

Bespoke Post- Dutch Oven

At your mark,
get set, 

In-tuned with my recent guilty pleasure, The Best British Baking Show, monthly men's subscription box company, Bespoke Post delivered a classic kitchenware right to my door- the cast iron dutch oven from Old Mountain. This cast iron Dutch oven is as legit as they come (you can tell as soon as you lift it) and I can't wait to try out some recipes like these. The Bespoke Post box included a couple of other kitchen essentials, a silicone trivet from Meridian and a multipurpose Mexican kitchen cloth. Now, I'm all set and ready to expand my repertoire. Make sure to check out their other uniquely curated boxes!

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.
