I've got the East Village blues.

One of the best travel tips I ever received was, "Go out and get lost." At first I was a little skeptical, why would I want to do that? What if my phone dies? But, they were so right. It's always been something that stuck with me whenever I'm traveling to a new city or country, or basically any new environment I'm not familiar with. You turn down streets you never would have, find restaurants you never knew existed, and come across hidden gems all over the place. I've found so many cool vintage shops, and coffee bars all over my new neighborhood. I've lived in New York 5 years now and it's always cool to come across new places you haven't seen or been before. If you live in NYC you know that when we leave our door we usually are on a mission to get from point A to B, avoiding tourists, and traffic at all coasts. So it was fun when I did this shoot completely unknowing where we'd end up... It kept things fresh and exciting.

We ended up choosing this cool artwork to add some color to my all denim look. (If you guys know the artist comment below). I'm wearing a FW 17 vintage wash denim jacket with contrasting sleeves from McQ by Alexander McQueen, Ine Cigarette jeans from AllSaints, white Nike Free sneakers, wool cap and AMOUR hoodie from Sandro.

To be honest it wasn't warm enough for the weather that day, feels like Winter is right around the corner. Counting down the days until Art Basel in Miami! Anyone else going?

Thanks to my girl Tyra ( @theedgyhippiechild ) for embracing the cold and helping me capture this look effortlessly!

Hope you guys have a good weekend.

COLLAB // NIKE x TOPMAN

NIKE x TOPMAN. Before arriving back to NYC, I had the privilege  of working with good friend and long time collaborator Joshua Walter in Amsterdam. Today's shoot was based around my new Nike Roshe One iD's. These shoes are not only extremely comfortable, but super light-weight. 

I paired the shoes with my Armani slim-fit suit and a Topman slim turtleneck. Turtlenecks haven't really been my thing the past years, but I've recently started becoming more and more into them. Some brands I've found that have affordable as well as good quality turtlenecks are, TOPMAN, WEEKDAY, DAViD BECKHAM for HM, and Marc by Marc Jacobs

You can get your own NIKES at SNIPES. And check out more of my friend Joshua Walter by following him on Instagram @djjoshuawalter.

Recently I moved downtown to the heart of China Town and East Soho. Once you get used to the unique smells (took me only 4 months) and the fast paced crowds of tourists, you start to appreciate the not so normal things you see daily. Whether it's the park filled with cheerful Chinese cultures singing karaoke, the scalpers trying to sell me fake rolexes, or the many fish markets that cause you to hold your breath as you walk by - China Town has found a special place in my heart. I managed to take advantage of todays 60 degree weather and my long time friend Mitch, was there to capture the look effortlessly. You can check out his site HERE.

Usually I'm a pro believer on the whole timeless and effortless black on black on black look, but this fall I'll be challenging myself to play around with more monotone color schemes and textures. The jacket was an effortless way to take a basic sweater and jean look to the next level. Adding accessories like grey beanie, Daniel Wellington watch, and my signature Marc by Marc Jacobs backpack gave the look a cleaner yet casual simple feel perfect for a day like today.
