Wrinkles are not chic - Mizzen & Main to the rescue.. 

MIZZEN & MAIN -YELLOW GINGHAM SPREAD COLLAR SHIRT - $125.00As regular readers know, I don't usually write about Men's fashion.  Why?  I'm not sure, but basically I don't find many things in Menswear that noteworthy.   Sure there are iconic brands like Salvatore Ferragamo and Hermes that always have something amazing to dream about, but menswear for the most part is pretty classic. GRAY GINGHAM SPREAD COLLAR SHIRT - MIZZEN & MAIN For everyday there are a few collections that are go-to-cool again and again - J.Crew and Jachs NY are two in particluar. 

However I just discovered a collection that is really innovative and interesting, two things I rarely find in one place.  

Mizzen & Main is a collection of shirts, jackets, and t-shirts (there is now denim I can't wait to try) made by athletes for athletes - or at least those with an active lifestyle.   This is a Made In America brand that uses innovative fabrics that wick moisture away from the body, stretches, and can be machine washed and hung dry.  No ironing.  No dry cleaning.   Seriously.  The shirts have a really cool fit, look great under a jacket or on their own, and are available in a range of colors and prints. SIX PACK SPECIAL - SIX SHIRTS FOR $620.00 - BEAT THAT.. I DARE YOU! 

These shirts are an awesome idea for anyone that travels for work.  ( They could have saved me hours of ironing / effort over the years when I was on the road).   Knowing you have shirts that are ready to go can make you feel that much more confident and relaxed when you are away from home. When you're in a strange hotel,  feeling jet lagged, and trying to find a place to eat something that won't break the diet too bad, it's Mizzen & Main to the rescue!  MIZZEN & MAIN DETAILS

The Made in USA factor is really cool.  Even if the shirts didn't fit so great, I woul cut them some slack for being made stateside - but they DO fit.  The shirts are also well priced.  For a fabric this soft, that wicks moisture, and looks so important - I challenge you to find one priced at $125.00.  Even cooler, you can order 6 for $620.00.  One six pack and you are set for the season!

click images to shop now.   Try one.   You'll like it.  Then .. get a six pack and never worry about a wrinkled shirt again.  #Brilliant!!  You can also follow them on social media.. there's always something cool going on with the brand.  click for FACEBOOKInstagram, Twitter

CLOGGING SPRING RUNWAYS AROUND THE WORLD! 

ALL BUTTONED UP AT GUCCI Spring 2015 is bringing a refreshing return to more straight forward clogs!  At one point in 2010,11, & 12 it seemed like designers were throwing everything but the kitchen sink into their shoe designs. PALE BLUE DENIM PATCHWORK   PLATFORM IN PINK AT BALLY The clean palette walking runways this year in NY, Milan, & Paris is retro and modern at the same time.  Spring 2015 is all about the 70's.. not so much bell-bottoms (a few) and lava lamps.. but jumpsuits, suede dusters, clogs, and platform shoes of all kinds are right on! PLATFORM CLOGS FROM THE UK -MULBERRY Take a look at all the references from the 1970's - many had been retooled looks from the 30's and 40's.  Perhaps it's no mystery that in 2015 once again these styles seem fresh, clean, and new.   #CLOGSPEASANT POETS AT CHLOE - SPRING 2015

At Chloe, a key looks was the peasant blouse, dark denim, and flats. 

At Salvatore Ferragamo, the look was inspired by archive pieces that Salvatore himself designed in the 1930's.  It was Ferragamo who is credited with creating many of the styles that are classics today.  Actually, Salvatore Ferragamo was the first designer to create a designer "brand" of creating custom shoes for Hollywood starlets in the 1920's.   Amazing.MORE 40'S THAN 70'S AT PRADA

Wooden clogs brought serious 70's style at Mulberry, Bally, Prada, and Rosetta Getty.

At Louis vuitton, the denim trend continued but washed with Vuitton charm heels. 

Suede dresses and dusters, camera bags, and sandals killed it at Gucci.

These looks all make strong statements when worn head-to-toe, but all can be worked into any fashionable wardrobe as an item. SALVATORE FERRAGAMO - NEW "RAINBOW" WEDGE PLATFORM SLIDE  What's your favorite look?  clogs?STELLA McCARTNEY PLATFORM HEEL FAUX LEATHER  Earth-tone Suede?

Choose a look and swing into the 70's vibe.. it looks like these styles will be in Vogue for several seasons.

MADONNA'S BACK, AND SHE'S PISSED.... #REBEL HEART 

MADONNA'S 13TH STUDIO ALBUM - REBEL HEARTGird You Loins!  MADONNA is back, and she is not happy.   The Queen of pop ended the year with 6 tracks from her soon to be released album - REBEL HEART, being leaked on the internet.  Getting ahead of the hack, within the week Madonna released the first six tracks immediately for anyone who pre-ordered the full album (her 13th studio offering) to be released in March.

No doubt, the leak made Madonna less than happy..(actually she made that clear on every social media account she has). 

Add this to the fact that at least half of the new tracks tell tales of a broken hearted woman getting over burned by her guy, getting on after dumping her boyfriend.  Think Taylor Swift on Nicki Minaj.

The queen of social media has been tweeting, posting, and gramming #UnapologeticBitch, #BitchImMadonna, and #RebelHeart for months - so we knew those would probably be songs.    Ballads have always been a strong suit of Madonna's catalog and her Ghosttown is a beautiful example.  To read more and listen to tracks - click - REBEL HEART
