The Classic Suit

The Menswear Spring 2015 Collections are making their way through Europe. Trends come and go but the sophistication of the suit always remains. Season after season designers continue to create different renditions of the perfect suit. 

The suit is the international ensemble of power whether worn by gentlemen or ladies. Who doesn’t love a man in a suit? A woman in a suit always makes a statement. It is a known fact that no one wears a suit like the Europeans. Ladies and Gentlemen have covered the streets in their finest, with an array of combinations of fabrics, prints and colors.

In honor of the Men’s collections, and the timeless suit, here are some of the dapper looks gracing the streets of London, and Florence; through the eyes of photographers Kuba Dabrowski and Tommy Ton.

Colours of Spring “Blue Ivy”

As the flowers begin to bloom, and the sun sets later a new season is on the horizon, bringing forth brighter and bolder colors. I found myself inspired by the season and decided on a gorgeous gel nail polish called Blue Ivy by Daisy, to accent my spring break affairs.

During an evening at Venice Beach I found shades and hues of the polish coming through the infamous and intricate street art, while complementing the vibrant colors of the fresh flowers in bloom.

While at brunch at the Perch in downtown Los Angeles with panoramic city views, live band, fresh fruit sangria, and delicious eggs benedict accompanied by savory perch potatoes, and a refreshing breeze my blue ivy nails stole the show.

On a clear Sunday at the Getty Museum everything my hands touched, like the ivory travertine stone, worked as a beautiful compliment to the “Blue Ivy” polish, gold Lace By Tanaya Lace Cuffs, and my caramel skin.

Along with great weather, endless adventures as well as the start of a new season my “Blue Ivy” nails are a perfect beginning to a colorful spring!
