Volo Classic Auto Museum (part 1)

I spent a good bit of time this past Saturday checking out classic American cars at the Volo Auto Museum. Here are a few things that caught my eye- I got a lot of good stuff so I’ll break this up into two posts, more next week.


More from Longoland

Some recent work from Josh Longo’s unordinary mind:


Ebbet’s Field Flannels

Ebbet’s Field Flannels makes some great looking uniforms from obscure, defunct sports teams. Or they’ll make something custom for you. Attention to the fabrics, patterns and details of the classic stuff obvious in their recreations.

Alexander McQueen at the Met

I absolutely can not wait to see Savage Beauty, the new Alexander McQueen exhibit at the Met.

Opening May 2nd and running through July 1st, it is a retrospective of more than two decades of McQueen’s work.  It will include pieces from his MA graduate collection from Central St Martins College of Art, couture pieces from his years as Givenchy’s creative director, as well as pieces from his namesake collection up to his final one, which was shown posthumously in Paris just a few weeks after his passing.

Yale is also printing what looks to be an amazing book based on the exhibit.

Details of Thakoon

WOW.  Thakoon’s new Fall 2011 collection has my eye popping.  The clothes are fun, colorful, and wearable, but what I really loved were the details!  Velvet booties, red and cobalt blue plaids (I swear this is the same fabric McQ used a few seasons back.. see my trench below), and not to mention the colorful knits wrapped in the models hair! Love.

On a side note, is this the same fabric as my Alexander McQueen trench?

New Home for THERSIC Style Icons!

Sorry for the delay and thanks for bearing with us!

We are happy to announce that we have a new home for our Style Icons on our sister-site: THERSIC Style Icons! Since it’s Fashion Week here in NYC, we didn’t want to overwhelm this blog with Style postings like we did last season, so we’ll be updating them on TSO and doing weekly updates about them here.

We’d also like to add, if you have any suggestions for themes, people, places, or things featured please let us know (via comment or email at kiersten (at) youfail.com)

Kitsune Fall/Winter Lookbook

With Fashion Week right around the corner, and many Style Icons to come (and a new home for them too!), I’m sure the fashion posts will over run things on the web in no time.  That being said, I just had to post these simple, Americana pieces from the Fall/Winter 2011 Kitsune lookbook.  Simple, but classic.

Scholten + Baijings and Hay: Rugs

This collaboration between Scholten + Baijings and Hay is driving the greedy consumer in me mad.. I can’t get enough!  First up, the tufted and hand stitched carpets in pastels and simple brights.

Style Icon: BIRD by Andrew Zuckerman

As soon as I saw Jean Paul Gaultier’s Spring 2011 Couture line, I immediately thought of the beautiful photographs from one of my favorite books, Bird by Andrew Zuckerman.  When I started matching up birds to specific pieces, I couldn’t seem to stop!  Hence, the lack of editing.

JCrew Spring 2011: Like Candy

I completely forgot to post this over a month ago!  You’ve probably all seen JCrew’s S/S 2011 Collection, but I love it (and the styling, of course), so I’m putting it up anyway.  For a girl who has way too much black in her closet, this color inspires me to get excited for Spring!
