reversecommuter’s personal faves include Jonathan Simkhai’s shards of glass dresses, Victoria Beckham’s stripes, Proenza Schouler’s fringe (MAJOROMG!!!!), Calvin Klein’s minimalist gorgeousness all round, and Marc Jacob’s pink house set and those amazing hobo bags.  Onward to London!

Guccio Gucci (great-grandson of The Original Guccio Gucci, who founded Gucci) is under house arrest after being found guilty of fraudulent bankruptcy.  Guccio no longer works for the family firm (he left in 1989).   Rather he attempted to launch his own line of handbags, which didn’t work and he filed bankruptcy…and apparently syphoned the assets in an attempt to save a little money.  Not so buono Guccio.

Enjoy the last remnants of summer this weekend.  Champs o’clock!

Tom (as I like to call him) explained the Men’s Winter 2014 Collection’s casual pieces as a reflection of his new lifestyle as doting daddy to his son, Jack.  Shearlings, cable knit  sweaters, pinwhale corduroys, high top sneakers (!!!!), trench coats, and all in rich colors including blackberry and ginger.

Tom (sigh) said that he needs clothing he can go to the park in.  HE IS JUST LIKE reversecommuter!!!!!!!  All consumed with the proper fashion wardrobe in which to hang in the burbs with his children.  Tom, call me, I can TOTALLY relate!  Let’s have a playdate!

Pantone has released the Spring color chart (actually it has been out for a bit but that Polar Vortex nearly pushed me over the edge so reversecommuter is just padding this post with warm colors!!!).

MBFW NYC has announced it’s lineup for February, and reversecommuter thinks rollerblades might be THE fashion statement of the shows.  Major designers have opted to present at off-site locations as opposed to the Lincoln Center tents.

Big Dogs such as Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, Diane von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Tommy Hilfiger, Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs (is that not THE BEST PIC of him?!?!?), are all going off site which is SO exciting as to see what the venues will look like, and how creative architecture will influence these incredibly talented creative designers!

Not to mention the inevitable traffic woes to succumb to all the fashion crowd.  Buckle Up!

Enjoy the weekend – do something to thaw out…like strap on a pair of fantasmic heels and pop a bottle of champs!
