Kenneth Ning S/S 17 #NYFWM

border

Men’s fashion week…Still so new but feels lived in like a favorite pair of 10 year old Levis! Feels like it always was.

This fashion week, we got to see one of our favs, Kenneth Ning! We were joined by two amazing artists Bryon Javar(@bryonjavar) and Chris Lim (@visualgunner)! The only thing better that #nyfwm is #nyfwm with a cool fashion posse!!! #blessed Bryon Javar was in town and settling down after a successful night of styling at the VH1 Hip Hop honors. He styled Teyana Taylor and is still on cloud 9 after rave reviews!!! Our #bruceglen collection has also graced #karrueche thanks to super stylist #bryonjavar. Chris (@visualgunner) is the dope photographer that’s responsible for the cool photography of this post!!! We had such a good time and got to see an equally great collection!

Kenneth Ning’s Full Metal was inspired by “Full Metal Jacket”. The collection has both military strength and a creative bang.  Asymmetrical Cargo details won the day and editorial attention.  Fabrics were woven with metal threads for a crumpled look. There were amazing magazine ready looks AND very wearable pieces for everyday. One of our favorite looks was a trench coat on model Noa Thomas. The models seemed like young guys drafted too young but well dressed for the war on “bad dressing.” We’ll done Mr. Ning, well done!

How much did we love TMNT as kids? We have the bed sheet sets, action figures and the VHS tapes!!! With that said, imagine our joy as the homepage of drmartens.com uploaded and boasted their newest collaboration with our half-shelled buddies! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!

We love fashion that is fun at first sight and brings smiles to our faces. That is precisely the fashion we desire to create and perpetuate. In a world of serious fashion and serious fashion people, we just wanna have fun. #Fashionisfunagain and these Docs are the epitome of FUN!

Dr. marten created a special Boot for each of the karate-chopping brothers.

Glen is sporting the RAPH and Bruce is rocking the DONNIE. We paired the boots with our favorite budding trend of the season, smile inducing Tie Dye Tees.

Also, we’ve recently relocated from the Upper East Side to Queens. We now live in a very homey, residential and quiet area.  It is a far cry from city life. It reminds us of our hometown in DC. It’s refreshing to smell of trees and dirt as we walk out the door…didn’t realize how much we missed it! It’s right next-door to the Queens branch of our church…major yay!!!  We took advantage of the neighborhood charm! It’s only fitting that our first shoot after moving into out new place would be in our new place!

Hope you guys enjoy!

If you were one of the Ninja Turtles bothers, which would you be and why?

What we wore:

The highlight of theses looks were definitely the matching BDG Striped Long Sleeve Crew Necks on sale at Urban Outfitters for $9.99. Love the nostalgic, almost child-like feeling of these striped guys!

 LABOR DAY

September started with a bang! We spent our Labor Day, laboring in Malibu, California on a hot beach, oh what a hard job! We style a very gifted gospel-singing group called Brandon Camphor & One Way! The mission: Shoot and style three music videos in two days and we did it! Can’t wait until the footage is released!

 

On our third and last day in LA, we had three hours of down time after returns and before our flight back to the east side so the only logical thing to do was a photo shoot, right?! We are so excited to share the awesome brand, Squadra Nera, created by our good friend Max who goes to our church, The Rock Church. His collection has a heavy Japanese samurai influence. He’s an amazing talent and an all around good guy! In addition to designing, he also styles Raven Symone for The View! His line was just picked up by Patricia Fields!

 

We rode down a highway until we found a good spot to shoot; one that captured the essence of LA…with the perfect blend of city and desert terrain. According to the maintenance man tending the housing development site where we decided to “set up shop”, we were shooting for about 10 minutes next to a snake’s pit. They named the snake Bertha. Apparently she’s so big, she eats rabbits. It’s hard focusing for a picture when the bush beside you is being rattled by God knows what!  Any who, this is the result of our L-A-scapades! Hope you like our first post! More to come!
