Ever since The Row made a $39k alligator version, it seems like backpacks have been on our minds ever since. Thankfully Mary-Kate and Ashley have created a much more “affordable” leather version and pretty much every other designer has come up with some sort of backpack to fit the hands-free lifestyle we all wish to have. But sometimes this style can be a bit too sporty, and can make us look like we’re going to the gym (which is cool for some but not for everyone…like me, who loathes such a place) so today it’s all about the sophisticated backpack or as I like to call it, the bagpack (and I promise none of them will cost you five digits).
Long shorts? Short pants? Where do we draw the line between shorts and pants? You know I love my puns, so let’s get to the long and the short of it…
What comes to mind when you think of fringe? Western movies? Gatsby-themed parties? Music festivals? That’s what usually comes to mind for me, personally (plus, it can overall just be tacky…and how many fringe bikinis is it going to take for us to move on to a new swimwear trend?). But then Chanel did this whole Paris meets Dallas thing for their Métiers d’Art show in December and I started to feel a little differently towards fringe…and it seems like other designers are starting to do the same.
With Father’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be the perfect time to talk dads, how their fashion may or may not inspire us and some menswear inspired styles you can wear this spring/summer.
