Closer_the_sartorialist_cover

Closer is the second book by Scott Schuman of the Sartorialist, the blog that inspired a million clones and turned street style blogging into the industry it is today. I bought his first book, The Sartorialist, when I moved to New York and totally feel in love. So I was trilled to learn Schuman was releasing a sequel. What I enjoy most about Closer is the diversity of images and the way Schuman plays with contrast in the spreads. One spread might show two people dressed head-to-toe in white, but each outfit is still individually unique. Another spread might show two people wearing similar colors, patterns, or type of dress, but each person wears it their own way. These patterns are so thoughtfully arranged and paced which adds to the experience of reading it. There’s also nice contrast between ages in Closer. It’s touching to see pictures of children beside adults and realize that at any age, one can be playful with style.

I’ve posted a sampling of my favorites but I highly recommend that you pick up the book for yourself! All Schuman’s books should be experienced in person as they each give an intimate look into how we dress and express ourselves through clothes. So get into it!

Kenzo Spring:Summer 2013 Campaign - Single

While looking through the March fashion magazines, Kenzo’s Spring 2013 ads caught my eye with their bold colors, prints and layout. Compared to other advertising in the March issues, these really stand out. Also I can’t get enough of the bold patterns! Now I can’t truly see myself wearing something like this, but I’m very into the pattern mixing that’s trending right now. I love how playful and graphic these combiations are. From a textile/pattern design standpoint, fashion is a great place to be inspired. And Kenzo’s Spring 2013 collection is a great place to look for new ideas.

Today I’m giving you a glimpse into the home life of Frank Muytjens, head menswear designer at J.Crew. I’ve seen editorial features on Frank for a while, popping up in magazines and online, but I particularly enjoyed this profile at Elle Decor giving readers a tour inside his country home 2 hours outside of NYC. Not only does Frank have excellent taste when it comes to designing menswear (at least half of my wardrobe is J.Crew these days), but he’s equally adept at designing beautiful interiors. When in the city, Frank calls Williamsburg, Brooklyn home (we’re neighbors – I must meet him!), and he’s created an equally beautiful space there. So happy Friday, and get into these beautiful interiors by Frank Muytjens, the man behind the men at J.Crew.

 

Living room – looooove the light and flowers.

Simple kitchen.

In front every great designer, is a great desk. It all starts with a desk.

Love the painting on the wall, and the fan/stack of National Geographics.

How amazing is this closet? SUCH ENVY.

Love the bed. Neutrals forever.
