It’s one thing to take over fashion in the USA, it’s another thing to take over the world. That’s exactly what internationally acclaimed fashion designer Malan Breton is doing. Having a fresh perspective on menswear by bringing his Taiwanese influences and bold patterns, Breton has set himself apart from the get-go. Breton came on our radar last Spring with his inaugural NYFWM show, where he stepped outside the box by using androgynous model Rain Dove along with more traditio
2.13.16/6pm: Diesel Flagship Store Launch Kicking things up a notch this NYFW, Diesel decided this would be a perfect time to launch their new flagship store on Madison Avenue. We're sure with the new direction from creative director Nicola Formichetti, the brand will be at Madison Avenue to stay. Waiting until "everybody was in town," Formichetti decided this was the time to throw an extravagant party at the new location and then to rent out a mansion just a few blocks away.

Over time, Dove has grown exponentially, modeling for Rochambeau, Vivienne Hu, and Nolcha Fashion Week.

Either way, as time passed he warmed up in front of the shutter and art was created. The way he moved was a seamless combination of athleticism and charisma. He let us style him in daring looks, which equally tested his comfort and our creatively without going too far. Menagerie highlighted his body in l
2pm: Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet Presentation #OhMyGoddess. Stacey Bendet's Spring 2016 collection for Alice and Olivia promised eager lines of chaos on Washington Street yesterday. The venue was over capacity before 2:30pm as on-lookers snapped shots of the street style gliding in for the presentation. For guests, entering the space caused flash-flood memories of playing dress-up as a child in their mother’s closet. Girlhood was celebrated moving from capsules of sequi
11am: Erin Fetherston Runway Show We sat front row at our first show at the "new tents" - the ones at Lincoln Center were much better in our opinion, but we're being patient about it - the "ERIN Erin Fetherston" runway show. Seated next to writer Liz Black and seats over from Bravo’s Stassi Schroeder, we joined guests in their excitement to see what the whimsical, romantic designer had to offer this season. Transported back into the Victorian age, Fetherston said she was "Ins
Tuesday 7.14.15/5p.m: Malan Breton Presentation Collection Overview: Malan Breton is one designer that we never know what is going to come next for, and that's just the way we like it. For the Spring/Summer '16 collection, "Homme," Breton showcased sportswear, swimwear and underwear go to with his usual suiting. Taking basics and elevating them with fabrics such as silk and bamboo lend to comfort for that man who is "on-the-go." This season, Breton debuted skateboards - which
