A DAY IN SORAGNA, PARMA WITH CARUSO

After spending a week in Puglia, Italy, our trip continued back north, where we spent 24 hours with Caruso Menswear in Soragna, Parma, Italy. The Caruso brand originally operated as a garment manufacturer until ex-CEO of Brioni, Umberto Angeloni stepped in. Angeloni, a well-dressed yet softly spoken gentlemen who has a love for good things, oversaw the Brioni brand for …

PUGLIA, ITALY

In June, Guerre and I made our way to Puglia, the southern region of Italy (or the heel of the Italy’s boot). Puglia is known for its sunny weather, whitewashed hill towns, great agricultural areas, and beautiful (but mostly rocky) coastlines. It’s ideal for travelers worn down by the crowds of other popular regions. Getting down to Puglia is easy …

LAKE COMO, ITALY + LUGANO, SWITZERLAND

In March 2016, after covering the Fall/Winter 2016 shows in Milan and Paris, I made my way to Copenhagen and then Lugano, Switzerland to see friends.

It would be my first time in Naples but many warned me to watch my belongings, so I went in with …

AMERICANA MANHASSET

Although Americana holds many luxury and contemporary shops, I was personally more enamored with Hirshleifers’ Mens Market. I must have …

JOURNAL: JUNE – JULY 2013

I had the chance to play around with my Contax T3 in June. I love how compact it is, but I’m still getting a feel of the features, functions, small ticks, and its potential under different lighting situations. I have a habit of shooting conservatively with film due to the higher cost, but I’m learning to be less conscience about …

A YASHICA SERIES

It’s sad to say that my Yashica film camera was stolen in Sydney for fashion week, so this would be my last “Yashica” post. I had a great run with it, but maybe it was a sign for me to move on to something better. I love how practical the Yashica was and how the plastic casing allowed me to …
