Albert makes funny simple sacks and simply funny hats. And lots of other lovely stuff too.

came across Apolis yesterday in a funny way: at UPS I stood next to one of their packages and really liked it.
It’s a great concept and a great line and collection of objects for the well dressed man: and I love the way the site is shot and organized too!
yesterday was awesome: Gen Art, SOYJOY and HL group and Genevieve productions put on such an amazing show: they made it so easy for all of the designers…that having been said, i want to thank chrystina woody, devon keane, jessie from fidm for all the dressing and styling help and all of the gorgeous and fierce and amazing models, and maggie g for hosting (those are my shoes on the popomomo runway above:)
below was my set up station…
this is raissa, the super cute designer of brigid catiis…
this is the supremely fierce lena getting all made up!
this is dilyara wearing one of my favorite looks from velvet leaf:
here’s a look from the battalion:
here are some of my favorite models, krystina, natalie and lena getting ready to walk for popomomo
so, we went to a (really lovely) event last weekend and have a bunch of weddings, events and shindigs we have to hit this summer. For me its not hard: I usually wear a lil’ popomomo to represent: but also, lets be honest, I have a closet of frocks ready to be unleashed for: “black tie, ” “summer wedding” and “cocktail attire.” and if i didn’t i could honestly do a close approximation at the local thrift store for less than 60 bucks: shoes and jewelry included.
It’s the boys that have the summer time blues.
I’d like to suggest the following as pieces I’d like to see on gentlemen I associate with at events we will be attending:
of course: and its amazing and classy, and if i can go there: this very waspy suit looks best on those that are NOT wasps. My dad wore his seersucker suit to a wedding primarily attended by people that went to Yale in the 70s, and as a Woody Allen lookalike he really rocked it.
the khaki suit:
this is probably my favorite. a khaki suit with flat front pants is the best possible look a dude can rock at a summer event. I think: james bond, robert mitchum, engineer/architect in a 70s disaster movie: the guys think: maybe i’m not super formal because technically this suit is casual.I would also like to point out that the khaki even makes Mr. Milo Ventimiglia look kinda amazing so it’s gotta be awesome.
Even though the Khaki is my favorite, if i saw a guy in a full madras suit (it doesn’t even have to be Thom Browne like this one), i would:
a. hope isaac had finally taken my advice and bought one
b. introduce myself immediately and make sure all pictures taken included him
c. make sure he met every lovely lady at the wedding and got his number for those not invited.
these madras suits are what I would wear every day if I was a guy, and you can’t really argue with that.
