A.P.C. 's new Autumn/Winter 2010 Collection looks good minus the skinny jeans. I HATE SKINNY JEANS (on men not women)! I checked a couple looks that I liked. The first one is cool minus the bow tie(another fashion faux pas of mine)! They did a good job with their blazers and overcoats too!
Here are some looks at fellow New Yorker/actress/fashion designer Chloe Sevigny's Opening Ceremony Pre-Spring 2011 Collection. It looks very Downtown New York girl-esque!
Here are some really nice blazers from Bonobos.com in some really good fabric quality for a decent price. Their prices range from $300-$350 for each blazer and come in a variety of styles and fabrics. I really like the navy pinstripe blazer pictured above.
The new line Jack Robie is a company from two ex-Wall Street Brown University Alumns that decided to sell high-end dress shirts online. The name comes from Cary Grant's character in "To Catch a Thief". Available now @JackRobie.com for $99-$155.

I know that I haven't posted a car in a while but I just don't post ANY car. It has to be special. So I came across this magnificent piece of machinery called the Ferrari 612 GTO by German car designer Sasha Selipanov. Now this car is just an idea and there is no further information from Ferrari about it ever being released but it definitely is pretty bad-ass if I do say myself!
The LV Monogram Vernis MM now comes in a new color called Rouge Fauviste. It sort of looks like a raspberry colour. Also is this LV Monogram Vernis Pershing GM in Rouge Fauviste which is a flat clutch with 8 card slots. Both are set to be released in early August 2010.
I need this briefcase in my life! I love the black on brown color combination because it makes the brown really stick out.
These are the hottest Vans that I've set my eyes on in a while! They look like they were inspired by a pair of $400 Common Projects sneakers. The nice light grey suede with the cap-toe makes them look more like a high-end brand sneaker. Available now @ UtilityBoardSupply.com for $59.99.
Rihanna has become such a fashion icon these days even Fashionista.com said that in the Sex in the City 2 movie SJP was dressing like Rihanna. Everyday she is being posted about what she has on. Now ELLE has graciously put her on their new July 2010 cover and it came out beautiful. Pick it up on newsstands now!
I know that I posted a pair of chambray shorts yesterday from Apolis Activism but these were just released yesterday and they just missed my swimwear preview. Oh well! Apolis Activism & Katin collaborate on these very cool Chambray swim trunks. They are made in Spain and they come with a lining for support. Available now @ Contextclothing.com for $110.
Maison Martin Margiela Car Prints are pretty different and it caught my attention of course because of my obsession with cars and clothes. The shirts share images of a Shelby Mustang so I guess if you're out with your BFF you can stand next to each other to complete the image when you go out. Just kidding! Available now @ Colette.fr for $174 for the V-neck and $295 for the L/S shirt.

Ah yes I can't forget about Burberry! Pictured first is the Burberry Haymarket Check Triangle Bikini with Plum Coloured Trim priced at $195 for the set. Secondly the White Burberry Check Trim Bikini Set for $180 it also comes in black if you're interested (and looks really good in black but it didn't match my color scheme). Next is the Khaki and Navy Mega Check Bikini set for $275. Pictured last is the finishing touch on your bikini called the Gauze Kaftan with Check Trim for $275. All are available now @ Burberry.com.
Now from Ralph Lauren's Swimwear 2010 Collection are these three options. First and foremost is the extremely sexy Adriane Ring Monokini priced at $375. Secondly is the Blue Label Aqua and White Striped Ricky Striped Bikini for $48 top/$47 bottom. Last is the Navy and White Striped Halter Monokini with gold beads on the strings. Also pictured in aqua and white stripes too. All are available now @ RalphLauren.com.
Now at Rugby they had a couple choices for the women. Pictured first is the Hot Pink and Navy Striped Ricky Halter Top priced at $45 top/$45 bottom. Second is the White Eyelet Ricky Bikini for $45 top/$45 bottom. It's print is a flower-like almost paisley pattern. Last but not least is the Indigo Blue Chambray Ricky Bikini Set priced at $98. The strings have seashells at the ends of the top and bottom. All are available now @ Rugby.com.
Now for my dudes, here are a couple swim trunks that I found. The first two are from Rugby and are a little too short for me with a 6" inseam but if you're into that I really like the prints on them. The first is the Wide Striped Board Short, the second is the Hawaiian Board short both are $69.50 and are available @ Rugby.com. Now if you're looking for a little longer swim trunks then the Nautica Channel Surf Trunk are a great look for the beach. They are on sale for $34.99 @ Nautica.com.
Summer's coming soon and we have actually been getting some 90 degree weather out here in New York so I figured that I would post some swimsuits (it also coincides with The Life Aquatic post). I looked everywhere for some nice/sexy bathing suits for the ladies and believe it or not Nautica had the best selection with these three swimsuits. Pictured first is the Navy and White Nautica Waikiki Halter Top and Bikini Bottoms priced at $62 top/$52 bottoms. It's pattern looks like a cable-knit sweater. The second is the all white Nautica Santorini String Bikini for $108 (for the set). It's print is a monochromatic white-on-white zig-zag pattern. Last but not least is the supersexy Navy and White Nautica Saltwater Dot Bikini for $120 (for the set) in a cool luxe-looking print that's pretty self-explanatory from the pictures. It kind of has a chic Italian look to it. All are available now @ Nautica.com.
