These railroad pants and the Chinese kid shirt are my LA staples, I never carry a purse so that outfit is like a carry all. The railroad overalls I literally saw on a walk home one day and I was really confused, they were in a pile on the sidewalk. Walking around in LA always gets you magical finds, since everyone drives. So I took the overalls home, threw them in the wash and for some reason they fit me perfectly. Sometimes I think that’s a sign from the universe that your on the right path, when perfectly fit railroad overalls are on the ground waiting for you.

FP Beach and now purely creates a collection from LA, right out of her Echo Park home. It goes without saying that her style oozes the laid back, cool LA vibe, but it has a twist… leaving you curious for more. There’s always a story behind each piece of clothing she owns, you just know there’s something unique about what she is wearing. I walked into her closet space with her, the bright LA sun glowing through her window. “I love LOVE rail stripes right now” and then she throws down her favorite pieces on her bed for me to get a feeling for her fixation. She’s the type of girl that gets drawn to clothes more if they have history or a unique aesthetic detail behind them, not so much a designer name. She’s a passionate soul, a beautiful person intrigued by everything around her. A couple of hours in her company and you feel like you’ve drifted into another world that’s carefree, carefully executed, and cool. Here we show you her style, enjoy!

Going through the runway shows of fashion week is like a game. You scroll and scroll until you come across something great, something that catches your awareness. You end up clicking the ---> tab for an hour straight. Repeating the collection like you never want it to end, undressing every look down to it's final detail. This I did with Dries Van Noten's Fall 2013 collection. The proportions, the long and lean silhouettes, the lux-ness toned down with casual touches... a messy shirt teased a jewel embroidered jacket, slightly platformed brogues made cool ankle skimming brocade trousers, and woolen ankle socks played rugged with heeled shoes.
The collection was fresh and new, there was something about it that just put a massive tick through YES! Masculinity and femininity merged together in a whirlwind of fine brocade, sexy slouchiness, plus sized coats and my favorite silhouette for Fall 2013, tunic style dresses over ankle skimming trouser. Van Noten embodied classic in a sophisticated lux-grunge way.
"It's always the quiet ones you have to watch" said Tim Blanks and I couldn't agree more.
