Inspiration: Macaulay Culkin by Terry Richardson

Gearing up for a major project tomorrow, we find ourselves pulling inspiration for the models based around this spread.  I love the grungy, crispy, raunchy yet subtle editorial.  I can’t say too much about the inspiration I’ve pulled, but would love to present it to you so that you may take in what you need.  Let it in.

MAN-ic Monday: Cameron Handley for Husk Magazine

Digging deep for some holiday time inspiration and remembering the collections from the Fall/Winter 2012 launches, I found myself diving into plaids, and texture, rough edging and light explanation.  The construction in the Thom Browne pieces worn by Cameron for Husk are more than just appetizing.  They create a solace found in the bold only by expressing the strength and courage one will need in order to assemble a lot of the collection.  Cameron is captured in stunning movement placed between breaking boundaries.  I can contemplate the satisfaction from the looks, I can even contemplate the satisfaction of ownership…I look forward to more interesting pieces of art, and will continue to be pleasantly surprised by the MAN-ic culture.

Attack of the Vanilla

For the pure.  For the subtle.  For the Vanilla.  Vanilla boys who parade in perfect detail.  Layering so tailored that the cake doesn’t even need a birthday candle.  For the boys who keep it classy.  Engineering perfection from the lines that have been present since the beginning of menswear.  Blazers, cardigans, cords, oxfords… the staple in the “Vanilla” boys world.  Keep in mind, these boys are sweet, put together, and exude a different kind of confidence… however, don’t be fooled by the vanilla look.  The vanilla boys may not want you to know that they also carry the world in their palm.  They just carry a different type of world. The Vanilla world.
