Thanks to this past fashion week, I have a new appreciation for menswear. I’m sure Corey’s taste and insight helped spark my interest, but recently my infatuation has led to me scoping out menswear in my free time (well, looking at male models is a perk too!) and one of designer that can’t go without mention is Lou Dalton. Starting her career in tailoring and pattern cutting, it is no wonder why Dalton’s basic menswear pieces seem to fit so well. Considered “rebellious English sportswear,” Dalton’s classics are the perfect stab at preppy conformity with her tight fits, destructed pieces and obnoxious cable knits. Keep your eyes peeled for a Topshop diffusion line, because it’s on its way!

DESIGNER: Riviera Club

DESIGNER: Riviera Club fashion

Riviera Club is a new brand from Santa Barbara that consists of some of the most laid back surfer dudes in the industry. Their simple looks and styling really make me want to go to the beach! The latest Spring collection is inspired by an old surfing legend who mysteriously died after heading off on a world tour with nothing more than his surf board and a paid photographer…What a badass!

DESIGNER TO KNOW: Lodger Footwear  fashionDESIGNER TO KNOW: Lodger Footwear  fashionDESIGNER TO KNOW: Lodger Footwear  fashionDESIGNER TO KNOW: Lodger Footwear  fashionMy attention was recently directed to , a London based fine men’s shoe company and despite them being rather basic, conservative shoes, they are some of the most handsome by far. It goes without saying that everyone appreciates a well-made shoe, but it is beyond me how this company releases a new shoe design monthly while maintaining quality and traditional craftsmanship. The great part about is their versatility- classy enough to be worn with a suit and casual enough to be dressed down with jeans. Completely loving the black and brown mid-calf lace boots!

DESIGNER TO KNOW: Valou

Picture 9

Valou’s 3cap rings are making a huge appearance in the world of fashion lately, and being picked up by all sorts of fashion and music peeps: Dirk Mai (the first to wear this amazing ring), , Demi Lovato, Audrey Kitching, Nick Santino from A Rocket To The Moon, and Mandy Jiroux..and those were only the ones I could find photos of!  The mens rings run around $175, and the women’s $125, but it’s way worth it for the statement you’ll be making with this ring.  Definitely a cooler alternative to the over the knuckle two and three fingered rings everyone is wearing lately, if you wear a Valou ring, you’re sure to be asked about it.

Head over to the site to purchase a ring and find out about sizing, there isn’t much info on the designer, but if you know Fashion Indie at all, we’ll investigate it and get your more information (maybe even an interview!) as soon as we can. 

Here’s some photos of people we love rocking Valou 3caps:

LAST NIGHT’S EVENT: Rad By Rad Hourani At SoHo Grand

Picture 3

Last night, the fashion people gathered at SoHo Grand to preview the new collection by Rad Hourani. Hourani told Style.com that this unisex line isn’t necessarily a diffusion line (priced from $100-400), but that “this is just more relaxed and easier to wear in cotton and jerseys.”  The line will be available in November online and in stores, perfect timing for these pieces, which include a lot of jackets, vests, super skinny jeans, t shirts, and perfectly draped shorts.  

Judging from the runway and all of the fashionable people there, must-haves for fall:

-guys in heels

-platforms

-destroyed tees

-partially shaved heads (for guys and girls)

-, ,

We had the pleasure of seeing the man himself, who was looking fabulous as to be expected.  Other sightings, Kelly Cutrone (who told us that she works out in her ), Kate Lanphear, Malcom Harris.

See our photos of the runway show, and a few fashion people on Cult

DESIGNER TO KNOW: Asia Wysoczynska    fashion
The website Not Just A Label has become one of Fashion Indie’s favorites, providing us and our readers with the most current and innovative designer blood. Although narrowing down my favorite Not Just A Label designers is a pretty tough task, I can confidently say that designer Asia Wysoczynska reigns among the top. Hailing from Warsaw, Poland and currently in her last year at the International Costume and Fashion Design School, Wysoczynska has recently been recognized by the fashion savvy Diane Pernet, and for good reason!
With three collections, The Taste of Life, Androgyny Tighten Up and Northern Seas Memories, Wysoczynska has quite the array of both men’s and women’s pieces. Paying close attention to structure and detail, Wysoczynska’s aim is to design clothes meaningful for the people wearing them. Without a doubt, my favorite of Wysoczynska’s pieces are the transparent organza and taffeta dresses and shirts.
Keep your eyes peeled for Asia Wysoczynska because this girl is likely to become a household name!

Corey and I just got back from Capsule, and while we were incredibly impressed with the majority of the collections present, we both had a little soft spot for S***R Shoes. S***R has provided kicks for of Radiohead to Orlando Bloom and even Matthew Williamson! Gathering inspiration from the iconic James Dean, S***R shoes have a recognizable look with the modern convenience of a rubber sole. But S***R  Shoes are anything but sneakers. Made from the finest suede and leather, S***R has a variety of amazing boots, oxfords, lace-ups and saddles totally worth getting your feet on!
