what yo’ name iz? danny schwarz, garrett neff, tyler riggs, vincent lacrocq, vladimir ivanov

throughout my much of my high school life, i was heavily into the styling of details magazine; in an effort to discover more of my true self & in turn, my true style. i’ve always had a preference for personal appearance & really view personal style as a form of art unto itself. accepting a distinction of what i had liked & prefered versus what the other kids were wearing was a process of growth & timeless inspiration. when looking at this editorial, i feel like im back in those days. at that time, i was deciding what i liked & began to really discover my own path of individuality looking for ways to inject my own style into everything i was doing, from the way i spoke, who i was around- even down to my penmanship, my greater goal in life has always been to represent myself as accurately as possible. over time that accuracy & intellectual process has become more natural & more like a second nature to me- it’s now a process that people around me understand & beyond that they respect. this editorial is a clean cut homage to the style direction that i’ve become familiarized with most. clean style, sharp grooming & timeless pieces that stand alone from season to season while not opposing but not bowing to the unforgiving ways of the seasonal trend. through the lens of robbie fimano, the impeccable styling of benjamin sturgill is translated through clean style, smart tailoring & modernized classics in the form of blazers, denim & dress shoes. though simple, i feel that a tremendous amount of style is both seen & felt in this spread. im intensely inspired & understand that there is great value in the details. whether the cut of the jean, the length of danny’s hair, the relaxed fit of the a denim jacket or the jawline on neff- style is everywhere.

menswear collections: john varvatos, spring

focusing in on the more warmer tones of the fall, the john varvatos label has a strong attraction to tradition & worn style. the summer/spring 2011 collection really streamlines the conceptual style of the varvatos label. pieces were seen in black, warm browns & shades of grey to further broadcast masculinity in what was presented as strong style. in thinking of what was produced in seasons past, i find elevated levels of cohesion from one season to the next. sleeves were rolled as were some of the collection pants & each look provided multiple aspects of style inspiration. a solid collection of classic style to say the least.

menswear collections: trussardi 1911, spring

hardcore elements of italian style are always incorporated into the trussardi 1911 collections. creatively directed by milan vukmirovic, the collection is a consistent representation of what vukmirovic defines as stylish & sensibly chic. with the right amount of classical interpretation, some trend is injected into the spring collection with its use of red & animal print. chic t-shirts are seen paired with sunglasses & a variety of bags, while red makes a powerful & still understated cameo. native american print is used within the collection, as well as leopard print on the collections belts, coats & footwear. though a smaller set in comparison to the empire lines of milan- the collection is still a very strong set with an extremely high level of style.
