My maternal grandfather was an incredible gentlemen and always looked very dapper, no matter what he wore. Being a South African mango and cattle farmer that usually meant a light plaid shirt, khaki shorts, knee high socks, leather shoes and always, always a hat. Show More Summary

On the Street...Houston St., New York

Summer hats too often take on an overblown Kentucky Derby vibe that is a little off-putting. I like howe this hat is sun effective and yet still city chic.

On the Street....Carlos Castillo, Madrid

I have to say I love Carlos' look.It proves that the right fit doesn't have to be a tight fit. The idea of a perfectly proportioned but completely rumpled linen suit for Summer is so alluring to me. This photo makes me want to get a linen suit and go live in this book.

Fashion Above the Neck, New York

This look is really about focus. This young lady knows that the drama of her look is in her asymmetrical haircut, strong contrasting eyebrows, bubblegum pink Chanel lipstick and her quirky tomboy hat. Let's not forget that clothes can...Show More Summary's First Annual Photo Blog Award

Madrid in Full Color

I really enjoyed myself in Madrid last week, thank you Movistar!It takes a few trips to a emerging design city like Madrid to start understanding what makes it uniquely beautiful. I think I'm starting to get the groove of Madrid. It's turning out to be a great city for menswear. Just One, Man, Patch are all shops I want to explore and report on in the near future.

On the Street....Tompkins Square Park, New York

The Lower East Side and especially Tompkins Square Park has been on fire lately. Such a great variety of style is blooming in the park right now. This is Claire. She is wearing a hand-me-down dress from her mother. I love the wispy little summer dresses that are starting to appear but a more tailored, shaped dress like this is sooo flattering.

This is a photo of my very elegant grandmother, Sushila Rao, posing with her new camera in India, where she was born and raised. It was probably taken sometime in the 1940s. She's wearing a tailored, white linen suit and flat, brown leather sandals, which make her look so strong despite the fact that she's very petite. Show More Summary

amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS Gala

On the Street....Alessandra, Milan

I saw my friend Alessandra when I was in Milan last week. As you can see, her style has evolved from a sportier gamine aesthetic to a more languid bohemian-femme mood. What I love about her look here is that even though her dress isShow More Summary
