The E.N.D.

Brian Reyes Fall 2010


It's been almost a month. I know, I know! But it's that time of the year where we get all dressed up in the bitter cold and hit the tents for the FALL FASHION SHOWS!! One of my favorite New York designers Brian Reyes showed his collection a few week ago to rave reviews. Brian's collection was inspired by elements in nature specifically trees that he saw during his travels to the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington D.C. and the Kew Gardens in London.

Trussardi 1911




Who would have thought a small Italian leather goods company started in the early 1900's would be resurrected into one of the newest sought after labels in fashion! Trussardi 1911 has been known for leather goods, but now specializes in men's & women's RTW and accessories. Creative Director Milan Vukmirovic (who is a former designer at Jil Sander and co-founder of uber cool boutiques Colette Paris & The Webster Miami) took Native American and rock & roll influences for both the men & women collections. Still staying true to it's original form, Trussardi's accessories stay at the forefront with ultra lush leather bags and shoes in cool textures & colors.
