Joseph Abboud is one of my favorite shows during New York Fashion Week Mens. This time around, Abboud switched things up and took us to church where he debuted his new Fall/Winter ’17 collection. The new line featured dark hues like navy, brown and grays, in addition to an array of textures like corduroy and tons of velvet.

For the show I had the chance to design my very own JA suit. I went with something more dark and appropriate for the winter weather, a dark deep and luxe navy corduroy suit. I can’t wait to wear this guy over and over again, and then break it up and wear it as separates too.

Prior to the show I had the opportunity to catch up with the man himself, Joseph Abboud, to discuss the new collection, his inspiration and how he manages to have the best looking cast each season. (Check out the video HERE).

V-Day Ready with Yael Sonia

Love is in the air. Planning the perfect date takes a lot of effort, time and dedication. Now picture that and times that by 100, that’s how much work should go into your V-day date. It’s not like any other date to the movies or fancy restaurant, you need to think out of the box and use every card in the book in order to impress your date. After spending days and days into what will be a three or four hour night, you will need a look that will compliment your evening.

My first suggestion is to go with something simple, like an all-black ensemble with just the right amount of details. So, I accessorized my subdued look with a few bold and modern pieces from Yael Sonia, a Brazilian-inspired jewelry line, like the pyramid prism double knot bracelet and necklace. Yael’s entire design and production process is anchored by her commitment to outstanding craftsmanship and innovation. Her men’s collection is inspired by modern architecture and movement, and is made out of hand-selected geometrically cut gemstones.

This past wednesday I got suited up for the Amfar New York Gala which took place in Cipriani Downtown. The night honored Scarlett Johansson and Donatella  Versace and raised funds to find the cure for HIV Aids. There were some really cool artwork that were being auctioned off, and a custom Moet Chandon vending machine which had 336 mini bottles (that went for $85K) (I’ll take two please). Plus, Ellie Goulding slayed it and performed some of her biggest hits. [L0-lo-love me like you do.] This was my third Amfar Gala, and by far the most fun.
