Giuseppe Zanotti Homme Smoking Slipper

Giuseppe Zanotti
Price: $775
It's all about the smoking slipper for fall and I simply just fell in love with this pair in midnight blue velvet with crystal fringe by Giuseppe Zanotti. I had the pleasure of shooting this shoe for IDOL Magazine and it looks even better in person. Wear it with a suit or with black jeans and a blazer to add a bit of flash and sophistication to your outfit.

Margiela for H&M

(R) Mirrored Tuxedo Jacket 
Price: $ 199
(L) Margiela Disco Jacket from Spring 09'  
Images from the Margiela x H&M collaboration, which is slated to hit shops on November 15th, are now available and the collection feels very Margiela. As a fan, I really enjoy the collection and I think other fans will too. The price points are also amazing! If you have ever purchased anything from Margiela's mainline collection you would know they do not quite resemble these prices. 

Margiela is known for deconstructing and transforming classic pieces, and his approach to design is very apparent in this awesome collaboration with H&M. For example, the navy and black Fusion of Two Jackets and the Reverse Denim Jacket. One of my personal favorites is a mirrored tuxedo jacket, which was a slightly altered version of the disco tuxedo jacket from Margiela's Spring 09' collection. Also, a piece that reek's of Margiela was a leather belt jacket, which was made up of leather belts in different colors like black, navy, brown, and cognac. That jacket is conceptually similar to the vintage baseball glove jacket from this past couture season. 

Just think, when you sing along to, "Ni**as in Paris," and recite Kanye's line, 'What's that jacket? Margiela.' You actually are wearing Margiela, sort of.

Thom Browne Men's Blazer
Price: $149.99

The Target + Neiman Marcus Holiday Collection brought together 24 designers from the CFDA for a limited-edition collection slated to hit stores on Dec. 1st. This collaboration truly has something for everyone. You can purchase a Rag & Bone flask as your White Elephant holiday gift and wrap it with Rodarte wrapping paper, which is of course for sale. Then buy a little something special for yourself like this Thom Browne blazer I'm a bit obsessed with. You've basically purchased a holiday gilft and something to wear to the fiesta. Now that's what I call stress free holiday shopping.
