Fashion inspiration: Clean, simple, and elegant lines. Timeless. -tM
I had forgotten how many great fashion moments there were in the film 9 1/2 Weeks.
This Vogue shoot with Anja Rubik clearly took inspiration from some of the more evocative scenes. However, throughout the film I loved the play on the masculine and feminine, of the evocative and powerful, of soft and hard. The exploration of our dual nature is also reflected externally in the films choice of fashion and design.
It is well worth watching again just for the fashion and design inspiration. -tM
Even though I have never been one to follow sneaker culture, these Nike's Air Max 270 sneakers in "Elemental Gold" are are a sneaker essential for me. Release date TBA. -tM
The Prada Flagship store in NYC by Rem Koolhaas. An infinite museum for clothes and personal expression. -tM
Loyalty, in the hot pursuit of love. -tM
Especially for the ones on the right.
A shoe can change the mood of an entire outfit. Detail must always be paid to the shoes you choose to finish off your ensemble. -tM
The trend for F/W18 from the likes of Roksanda, Phillip Lim, to Marc Jacobs and many more are scarves and more scarves, closely tied around the neck like the exaggerated bows of our childhood.
It looks like the scarf will be the next "MUST HAVE" accessory of the season. I predict we will see them adorning, shirts, coats, even denim jackets. The neck seems to be where it's at in the days to come. -tM

Flipped over and inside out with the given bonus of a fashion forward denim cummerbund, I certainly couldn't pull them off.
Although, as far as of the rest of Y/Project's denim design this is much more on the tame side. The model makes it work. Could/would you? -tM
Just one of Mario Testino's masterpiece's; capturing candid, thoughtful moments, where photography becomes the unifying image of the inner and outer. -tM
Edward Olive on Art:
"Art in reality is: soul,
connections, communication, capture, preservation of moments in time, people and their insides, places and their essence, original, thought, original technique, original points of view, the provocation of thought, cathartic experiences, plays on words/puns/paradoxes, oxymoron, humor, sadness, joy, pleasure, any emotion, breaking barriers and conventions, personal exploration, the sharing of one’s experiences, obsession, reinvention, revolution, new angles on old subjects, putting together or combining preexisting elements in new ways, a reflection of an era and its norms, a reaction against the era and its conventions, a rebirth of old thoughts and techniques from the past that don’t now exist, political comment, social awareness, anything, everything."
Living, truly being alive, in and of itself is an art. -tM
Different, cuts, colours, patterns, and heights of waist lines are simply beautiful and extraordinary, as seen on these Italian men. How could one not be inspired by such thought, beauty, and style. -tM
When Studio 54 was the evil lurking in your neighbourhood. -tM
Inviting one to participate in the ritual of getting dressed can be just as sensual and sexy as having a lover undress you.
The composition of this photograph is beautiful. It reads like a Gustav Klimt painting. -tM
I have always appreciated the raw capture of life, style, and culture that street photography seems to conquer in one fell swoop. Who could ask for a better backdrop, or for more interesting participants.
A palimpsest of detail, it's life, unabashedly staring you in the face. -tM
