Guilty pleasures with Bill Cunningham

So we wake up in the morning and read the NYTimes - Headlines. Business. Travel. browse the Arts. sometimes throw a little Sports or Technology into the mix. and then alas, Style.

When we heard that Zeitgeist films was coming out with a documentary on the Times' very own Bill Cunningham we were not only thrilled but inspired once again by his honest perspective and pure passion for style. See for yourself.

Greetings from Stockholm

Traveling to a warmer climate? We have a collection for you.

Not usually a sucker for denim shirts,
mainly because of its horribly boxy shape and it's inability to 'dress-up' -
alas! we are proven wrong

Always think : pieces that are easily interchangeable

Tailored shapes are timeless,
mix it with bold graphics or streetwear hues that POP :
instant style cred in our book

An edgier side to the Classic Prep

A whole generation of modernist architects and artists, attracted by its raw, unbranded, anti-fashion status, adopted a look that destroyed established dress codes and created a logo-free, democratic – albeit often expensive – ideal of style.
