Designer Scheron Harley of Haus of Falenci’ago, based out of Largo, MD, presents to us her idea of “Paris is Burning” through her dramatic elements of high fashion, visuals and sound. The dark and dreary elegance of her aesthetic in design and creative directing gives off an intriguing sense as President of The Alexander Firm and free lance model, managed under Strong Arm Division, Gia Alexander stops the show in the opening scenes. Check it out below.

Bold prints made a big impression at Burberry Prorsum this season, with the bright colours providing a stylish counterpoint to the label’s traditionally muted palette. This shirt’s graphic pattern has a hand-drawn, tribal influence that gives it a distinctive edge. The shades of brown/dark orange and gray/blue which will make for a great look with a solid pair of chinos, recalling the hazy heat of a sub-Saharan summer.

Givenchy releases their pre fall 2012 collection which was presented by Riccardo Tisci and features two models, Simone Nobili and Willy Cartier. The pieces were inspired by “sharks, marines and surfers in the night” mix tailoring along with some utilitarian aspects which is right up their alley. Even though it will be awhile before the collection releases, seeing that it is a “pre” fall collection, take a look at the rest of the lookbook below:
During my vacation in Jamaica, I visited Dunns River Falls and decided this would be the most opportune time to get a great sand wash at the beach. I’ve only had them for about 5 months now, which is a pretty decent age for washing raw denim jeans. Many people wait after 5 months, a year and you have those who don’t wash their jeans at all. As you look through the pictures, you’ll notice how distressed and worn the jeans become after sand washing; the honeycombs, whiskers, even the pocket areas.
I was pleased with the results of the wash. One big complaint people have with their jeans post-beach wash is stinky saltwater musks. Personally didn’t experience any adverse odours since the wash.
