If you didn’t already know, Japan is better than us at everything they do.
Sofia Coppola is so good.
Umit Benan’s design philosophy: What makes clothes interesting, gives them meaning and ultimate definition, are the inspirational characters who wear them.
It is the man alone, his own attitudes and backstory, who crafts his personal style. Never the contrary.
Gender lines were blurred by Comme des Garcons Homme Plus Fall/Winter 2012-13 collection.
I like it.
I originally intended on coming to The Academy in Long Beach for the Gourmet and I Heart Pies event. When I got there, I Heart Pies was already set up outside the shop, and so was Taco Nara, but the guys from Gourmet didn’t show up. I heard they got caught up with something and they might make up for their absence with another event later this Summer. I made the best of it and enjoyed the rest of the evening with the great people from The Academy, I Heart Pies, and Taco Nara, who helped me forget why I was even there in the first place.
The Academy is a great shop. The decor, displays, and products they carry set them apart from the wave of boutiques and specialty stores popping up everywhere. Instead of strictly focusing on menswear, they also sell a broad range of clothing, shoes, and accessories for women. This new location hasn’t been around too long, but the three brothers who run The Academy have been in business for the last seven years. Based on what I’ve seen from these guys so far, they’re going to be in business for a very long time!
Visit The Academy next time you’re in Long Beach and tell them I sent you!
