The last show of the week that I was able to go to was the Raquel Allegra SS16 Presentation. This presentation was located at the Industria Superstudios again, but this time in a more spacious studio. Although it was Raquel Allegra‘s first NYFW show, she presented with the quality of a seasoned-designer. Her pieces for SS16 carried a vintage theme with splashes of tie-dye prints. Almost every outfit composed of deconstructed layers and fabrics of silk and linen. The models were circled around an original-designed mandala by Briana Sophia Young, which centered the studio, and the colors of the mandala blended perfectly with the SS16 line. The bright tie-dye hues made the room feel alive and added energy to the crowd. Of attendance was actress Marisa Tomei. I was able to snap a picture of her with the star of the show, designer Raquel Allegra. Below are some pictures of the presentation! Click an image to see images in a slideshow. That wraps up my NYFW recap series! I look forward to next year’s NYFW…

Guatemalan Style

I always enjoy working with different brands from around the U.S. and other countries. This week, I have the pleasure to work with Korβáta, a Guatemalan tie-making company, to showcase one of their uniquely-designed ties. What sets Korβáta‘s ties from others is that they are 100% cotton woven and handmade in Guatemala. Furthermore, each of their ties carry a certain story and meaning with the design. The specific one that I am wearing, the Laguna Yaxhá, symbolizes the ceremonial güipil from Peten, the northernmost department from Guatemala. The intricate design and the multiple contrasting colors of the tie are eye-catching, making this one of my favorites of their ties. I hope to one day visit Guatemala to experience their culture and learn their history first-hand. Until then, this tie brings me close to Korßáta’s home. – Details –  Suit – The Suit Shop – J.Crew Tie – Laguna Yaxhá – Korßáta Pocket Square – Raspberry Tea – Arnold Steiner Tie Bar – Silver Mustache Tie Bar – Harrison Blake Apparel Socks – Venice – Sock and Soul Watch – Stainless Steel – The…
