TY-LR Fall 2016 sweater worn by Talun Zeitoun

Vegas was an eye

opener; literally because, with work, I barely got much sleep and figuratively because, well, fashion. As I’ve mentioned, I was selected among a handful of menswear bloggers to attend both the New York and Las Vegas PROJECT trade shows to get a closer look at what brands have coming for fall. To say the least, it was an honor. I met some really great guys (and ladies!) in the menswear space and get to speak to some talented designers/entrepreneurs getting their brands out there. It’s always a challenge — albeit a fun one — to put together looks on the fly, especially when there’s a 1.1 mile-long building filled with clothes to choose from. Slight heart palpitations knowing you only have X number of hours to shoot X number of looks. Story of a stylist’s life, right? Anyway, I present you with a look I’m coining “green envy” simply because it’s the only thing that’s sticking in my mind at 1:26AM on a Monday morning looking at these pictures. But really, I was inspired to create a monochromatic, loose-fitting look surrounding this TY-LR sweater I locked eyes with. Kept it easy without putting anything underneath, paired it with a beautiful blueish/green trouser from WHYRED, and threw on a green pebbled leather backpack from Uri Minkoff. Side note: these are all brands you should know (TY-LR is releasing menswear as soon as this Spring — get excited; and of course, you remember Uri Minkoff). Topped the look of with spanking new pair of Lacoste L.12.12 white sneakers as you can never, ever go wrong with a clean pair of white sneakers. Thoughts on the look? More looks from #bloggerPROJECT coming soon…
