Now in NYC street food is rapid fire! Hot dogs served up in 30 seconds ready to go, ,knish; whatever. It's what I was raised on and now am being taught a very painful but rewarding lesson about Portland's street food culture.

Even doing a 5 o'clock shadow shave with a dull blade (full white stripe) the blade seemed to glide pretty smooth AND shave quite close. Let's be clear, you could easily pay more for a lesser quality shaving product but for $8.99 it's worth the money. The only problem we seem to find is small outfits like this either get scooped up or go bust, let's hope they stick around.

Designers like this have the ability to delve into the past and at the same time move forward with fresh ideas, both were achieved in this collection. The current Abboud client should be satisfied as well new ones to follow. It was also nice to see mens bags on the runway, something you don't see a lot of to begin with.

For fall 2016 Lucio Castro's inspiration were photographs of traveling communities in the UK, the total number he showed was around thirteen with very different looks and little cohesion. It seems it's a thrown together collection it the hopes that some pieces might resonate with consumers but after viewing the range and diversity the question must be asked, who's your guy? Actions speak louder than words and with fashion designers and this is how they communicate to the public. With only a very small collection and what was shown these questions still must be answered. It seems a few of the prints Mr. Castro used; seemed 70's inspired, as for this translating to a millennial customer or otherwise?

What draws me to this line are a few factors, the pieces are easy to travel with; basically you just toss em into the bag and your off! His price points are easily digestible with tops in a range of $120-130 and jackets at around $175. Lastly these looks can be worn just about anywhere. The feeling is a relaxed stylish woman who has a sense of style but she's not a slave to it. More information can be found at www.lolaandsophie.com

What is more interesting here is the size of the collection, under twenty looks! It seem Mathieu feels no need to floods the marketplace with a large scale collection. Either he knows what his woman wants (and he does) or he's reading the tea leaves from the international business sections and can sense that world economies are slowing which translates into fewer sales.
Keep your eye on the red carpet, I have a feeling a few of his gowns will grace them.
