Simply RAFishing

Hi from Portland everyone. Just poppin' on to say... the Fall 2013 Raf Simons collection for men is badass. I've been way into collars and sweaters and layering lately, mostly because it's freezing, and I'm going through an odd preppy phase. The retro pants are dope too. These are my four favorite looks:

I miss you

Martian Tide, I miss you. Paris, I miss you. I haven't blogged in over two months, mostly due to an extremely full schedule and feeling as if I have a less unique perspective to offer now that I've been back on my home turf in Portland rather than being something of a fish out of water in Paris. Now that fall term is over, I realize I do miss having this space to organize and share my thoughts and photos and interests, in fashion or music or otherwise. Truthfully, although frigidly cold at the moment and not European or too exotic, Portland is truly beautiful, so why shouldn't I share it with my followers? Here are a few photos from the months I've been back in the states.

For some reason I've been listening to the Spinners nonstop lately. It must have something to do with the fact that I bought some groovy high-waisted wide-legged jeans the other day on sale at H&M... enjoy.

over and out. i love you all.

Davidelfin SS '12 + Best Fwends

Hello earthlings! Tomorrow I'm beginning my third week of school back in Portland, and my second week of living in the Northeast part of the city! It's nice to be back but I am definitely still adjusting to being busy again, and I miss France everyday, especially my friends and mes enfants. Luckily I'm taking two French classes and I'm pretty sure one of my teachers is Parisian, so I still have to speak plenty of French. 

Anyway, I wanted to rave about one of my favorite collections for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2012 season. I'm totally in love with this colorful collection from Davidelfin, a Spanish label who recently showed during Cibeles Madrid Fashion Week. It's such a fun and literal take on color blocking, and brings to mind the paint swatches one would see at home improvement stores. I also love the contrast between the loud, fun colors and the traditional toughness associated with usually leather-made motorcycle vests. It's almost as if he's poking fun at this toughness. 

Oh, and THE BAGS!! I am FAR from being a 'bag person,' but these are irresistible. In fact, they were designed in collaboration with Prince Pelayo of Kate Loves Me, and are. so. beautiful. Check it out....

I feel like this collection can logically be paired with some tunes from a band I've been listening to a lot lately, Best Fwends, who call the music they make 'abrasive pop'. I played them a lot last week on my radio show Haircut Meganomics, which you can listen to HERE!

In other news, all week I've been attending Portland Fashion Week as press and it's been a lot of fun! Blog posts to come! :)
