Little River Band. Reminiscing With Lyrics / Fashion Capsule and Sarah Murray ~ www.fashioncapsule.ca

My friend, Sarah Murray and I went to the east to meet some lovely and talented ladies! I'm only kidding, it was just around the Langley area which is about 40-50 minutes at the right time of day....from downtown. :D

Part of reason why I love being a photographer is collaborating with like minds, and I get to meet interesting people. In this case I met the most down to earth jewelry designers, each talented in their own special way.

Meet our local talent. I feel privileged to have met them all.

What a perfect afternoon. Thanks, Sarah.

He started his own venture at the age of 21 and only after two years at Parsons. In this decade the brand rose a lot and is still doing, not to mention his nearly three years as the creative director of Balenciaga...."

La Roux - In For The Kill / IVANMAN SPRING-SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION POSTED BY LEO ~ thebestfashionblog.com

"IVANMAN SPRING-SUMMER 2016 COLLECTION"

POSTED BY LEO
"This time I want to share with you IVANMAN Spring-Summer 2016 collection, which was inspired by Coen brothers’ film Barton Fink (1991) and works of Le Corbusier. Brand's designer Ivan Mandzukic combined bright colors with relaxed fit sportswear. Speaking of colors, then you are going to find here blue turquoise, lilac, canary yellow, pink, violet, red, bubble gum pink, etc. The spring season is bolder than Mandzukic's previous ones." ~leo

Great collection. Personally not a fan of yellow but this collection makes me feel otherwise. 
Here are my favourites.
 ...just looks good. I love the photography.

 Ingenious layering. Pieces I haven't seen before for men. I have an issue with the waist band of the jacket. I'll point that out in another look. Otherwise, I love the look!

 Very sharp, somewhat debonair..no? 


 Okay, here I will point out the waist band. Overall great colour combo! ...it's that waist band. Why must we 'feminize' an otherwise perfect bomber? Just keep it simple... like BELOW.

You know I am HUGE fan of models. Like I said...I just love them. I believe beauty is deeper than the physical. Personality is huge and I believe most, if not all, have only made it this far because they were good people and more importantly, great to work with.

So here are the tops of 2014! ...remember 2015 isn't over, yet! ;) ..click the link and see who made the most!

"A New Generation of Comic Book Hero – Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Shot Perfume Review" / Air-All I Need ~ lyrics

"A New Generation of Comic Book Hero – Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Shot Perfume Review"
Sometimes I look for ads that are "clever", or visually appealing just to "pretty-up" my site, or for an excuse to play a song.
 I love this one.

"Todd Snyder Spring/Summer 2016 | New York Fashion Week: Men's"

Haven't posted a fashion show in a  while so I decided to go for a collection that is easy for EVERYMAN. There is something for all of you! I personally love how basic and clean it is. The colour palette is nice an somber, rich deep purples and hues.
 I absolutely would wear the scarf. It's perfect. Not too much, but says, 'cool' and confident...and that you know what's up.  This is one of my favourite looks. I really enjoyed the "purple" line. #safeandsexy #modernman #urbanchic #chic #scarf #cravette

Diplo - Revolution (feat. Faustix & Imanos and Kai) [Official Full Stream] /Pantsuit Riot: 2015-2016 Fall Winter Womens Fashion Trends ~ denimjeansobserver.com

One of the greatest things that came out of the 70's is the pantsuit. It actually goes way back in history, but it was the 70's that brought it to life...in my opinion.  Here are my favourites from the selection shared. You'll see some dresses and 'uniforms', as well. :D!
For those who like to stay within the 'comfort' zone. Why not stand out with a bit of a twist and playful eye for colour!

 I love the dress on the left. It's so beautiful.

I would suggest toning this down by keeping it as is. May be no shirt at all, or a solid tank of some sort? A solid colour, if you choose a button up. I would. Look to the right down south...eeez, cute, no?
#shoesock?

  LEFT!!! The suit on the right looks awkward to me. May be it's the pose, but the proportions bug me. Just me.
