the cool shit coming.
Very few things are certain about the future. Lucky for you, I have a crystal ball and it’s speaking to me about your closet. Peep a few SURE things about A/W12: Bomber Jackets. The store is stocked with lightweight bomber jackets for Spring. Fall will require a heavier fabric. What about a bright orange snake print bomber?! If you can’t handle that madness, turn to a classic....
//JUST IN: VEDA Spring 2012
We were hyperventilating as we unpacked the new spring collection from VEDA because we had instant flashbacks to falling in love with these pieces in the showroom. It’s all classic VEDA (super soft leather; bad-ass, forward styling; killer fits; comfy ribbed sleeves) but there’s something really polished and refined about how Lyndsey’s newest pieces feel. There’s always...
ACRE/SF: Vegas: Acrimony & ACRE/SF-style! →
acresf: Last Monday, Jenny and I were in Las Vegas to visit the all-important MAGIC trade show. I have to say it was an amazing opportunity for me and something I will never forget. It was a long day consisting of traveling, appointments, people watching, standing in lines, eating the “Acrimony” diet… Check out Brian’s recap of the trip to Vegas!
acresf: The sun is out today. Feels like summer. We recently received a shipment of Cheap Monday that has us ready for spring more than ever! As far as we are concerned there will not be winter this year! Check out this video from Cheap Mondays SS2012 show in Stockholm. Oh and be sure to check in with the ACRE blog soon, special giveaway on the horizon! Woooh!!
Cole Haan LunarGrands
I’m not usually one for writing about big brands, but the buzz around Cole Haan’s LunarGrand wingtip has got me thinking about how comfy and worn in my Cole Haan oxfords have become since I bought them 3 years ago. They launched the Nike Air pump for the ladies a few years back, and while lacking in the style department imo, the comfort was definitely there. Leave it to Nike to...
STILL ON SALE: The Addison Story Chiffon Maxi
Marcus says: One of the best things I’ve ever experienced was sitting on a rooftop with a cold drink stashed in a can of soda and peeking into the Greek Theatre watching Stevie Nicks do a solo show. My love for everything about her, from the scarves on her half-moon tambourine to the long hair to her ridiculous voice is deep and true. When this shirtdress, I instantly thought about her...
Ah Oui Oui, Paris~
The Travel Diary Continues in Paris. Peep just a preview of what’s to come for Fall: I was lucky enough to have Marcus with me this time around. It’s really helpful to have someone dedicated and willing enough to travel with me and spend every waking minute in my presence. It’s no easy feat. Crepes make it a little easier: Tranoi was our first stop, we really fell in love...
BACK by Ann Sofie Back
Still, in my opinion, one of the most underrated labels in women’s fashion, BACK by Ann Sofie Back. As creative director for Cheap Monday and her own main line collection Atelje, Ann Sofie Back is busy pumping out 3 distinctly different looks. Acrimony is still among only 6 retailers in the US to represent her, remember seeing it HERE, » HERE and HERE? With a successful...
House of Holland
All this talk about color and here I am, still wearing black and white. I was looking through old old photos from one of my first fashion trips to Paris. House of Holland was on the forefront of my cool brand list back then and for some reason it faded into the distance. This collection on the runway was so good, and I still covet some of these pieces (read: black furry jacket), to this day. Peep...

NY Travel Diary #264
If you read even just a few menswear blogs or publications you’ve probably seen every single new collection for Autumn 2012 released thus far. The problem with reading through 2000 posts is that half, maybe more than half of the collections are brands and looks you don’t care to see. It’s good to be educated on a broad range of designers, but I don’t think “showing at...
