Earlier this year when it was announced that New York Fashion Week would institute a week devoted specifically to menswear, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical. Men’s designers haven’t always received the beneficial end of New York Fashion Week, instead being sequestered to small venues or as opening acts for their female counterparts. I’m ecstatic to see menswear designers getting their due!
As part of my preparation for NYFW:M this season, I’m excited to partner up with my friends over at MR PORTER to prep for the stylish week to come. MR PORTER recently extended their same-day delivery service in NYC to the Hamptons, allowing style-conscious weekenders to get their fashion fix, even a hundred miles from Manhattan. How cool is that?
Attempting to lighten my workload for the upcoming week, I’ve been on my game making sure I check all outstanding tasks and meetings off my to-do list. I spent most of today running around to showroom appointments and sales meetings with brands not showing during NYFW:M.
Not one to stray too casual for professional errands, I paired one of my favorite tailored trousers from ACNE and a sporty polo from Thom Browne with my all-purpose black Birkenstock sandals… it is summer, after all. To give the look a little stylish punch, I added a pair of Illesteva sunglasses, a handsome portfolio from Miansai, and a beautifully simple Mondaine timepiece.
So what’s black, and white, and red all over? Apparently, it’s me in my favorite pieces from MR PORTER. Go figure…
