Cool finds from around the globe and the web, all for this July.
>>>THE READ: ROGUE Magazine
Literally, a DIVINE cover. One of Manila's most prominent and sexiest ladies, Divine Lee graces the much-reviewed and well-acclaimed men's lifestyle magazine, ROGUE .
The magazine celebrates its anniversarry this month and this cover, shot by the master, Mark Nicdao, just sums the years up perfectly. Aside from the smart articles and the informative writings, ROGUE is probably Manila's classiest book to date. It's always so relevant, sexy without verging on vulgar and one---among a few---really masculine magazines. Others just pale next to it. Everytime I get a copy, it makes me feel like owning a well-loved and treasured vintage watch. Like my grandfather, giving me an aged Cartier Santos that's painfully so handsome and elegant and tells time perfectly. I'd never stop looking at my wrist and that's exactly how ROGUE makes me feel. Grab a copy of the magazine to hit Manila's newsstands this Wednesday.
>>> SUPERB STYLE STAPLE:
Ransom by Adidas Originals
Thanks to High Snobiety, I've turned into one, hi-cut shoe fanatic.
Ransom by Adidas Originals The Valley (such a long and cool name) presents their Fall 2010 offering.
It comes in suede and has simple detailing which amounts to perfect seasonless wearing. Well, not really, but if the skies are clear and the weather's quite fine, this is a handsome shoe to sport. Khakis, drop crotch trousers, straight to skinny jeans would look wonderful with these pairs. It comes in gunmetal grey and cool black. The shoe laces too are great.
>>> AMERICAN BOY Sean O'Pry
Probably one of this generation's most recognizable and---dare I say---handsomest faces, Sean O'pry celebrates his birthday on July 4, America's independence day.
Gracing bold-named campaigns like Giorgio Armani, Gianfranco Ferre, ZARA, Bottega Veneta and a whole lot more, male model's the face as he is called, represents that sort of different American male archetype. Which is probably why the guy is one of fashion world's most favorite models (currently number 2 after Karl Lagerfeld's favorite, Baptiste)
