Get Back in Khaki with Milo Ventimiglia

Funny thing about a khaki suit: Whether you drop a few hundred or a few grand on one, you’ll get loads of compliments. Partly, it’s because it’s different: It’s not your typical gray or navy business suit. It gets you noticed. Also, you can wear the hell out of it. A couple of years ago, I found my perfect one (slim in the legs, stiff in the shoulders), and I’ve worn it every which way—to the office (like Milo here), to summer weddings (white shirt, black straight tie), with a polo and sneakers, and with jeans (white or black, but for...

Un salon classique et singulier

J'adore! L'entrée de ce grand appartement parisien du XIXe s'ouvre sur un salon aussi grand qu'une grande salle de bal, séparé par des ouvertures en arche. Le meubler de façon classique n'aurait fait qu'accentuer son côté intimidant, les propriétaires ont donc pris le contre-pied des idées toutes faites. Il est décoré d'animaux empaillés, de collections de papillons, de bustes, de mappemondes dans l'esprit d'un cabinet de curiosités. Un mélange sophistiqué qui dessine un décor étrange étrange et raffiné, une belle manière de... [Lire la suite]

The Easter Parad along Fifth Avenue by Bill Cunningham

Spring and Easter arrived the same week. One woman celebrated the season’s change with a chartreuse goat collar. The Easter Parade along Fifth Avenue was more carnival than fashion show. Two dandies in pastel suits were among the amblers. The cold weather was great for hats decorated with fresh flowers. Photos Bill Cunningham www.nytimes.com J'adore ces new-yorkais complètement déjantés...
