Usually Monday begins with countdown to the weekend that is unless I have a deadline creeping up on a Friday. Luckily this past Friday was a great day to start off the weekend and the work that was due was a nice surprise to the usual.
The F/W14 kick-off process started with the dept. meeting off-site at a new fave restaurant: zimmer no. 01 (will def. be on the city map hint hint of things to come). It's always great to get out of the office, away from e-mails and get creative working as a group to define our "guy". The homework was to bring 3 items that can be used for the season.
I brought a couple of magazines I am always inspired from: the Heritage Post (great article on tattooing btw) and German GQ Style, featuring a rough looking yet sexy as always Jake Gyllenhaal on the cover. I added a vintage sweater I had just bought in Antwerp that had a nice washed down red color and features several knit structures I found interesting. For good measure I added a 4th Item; a t-shirt from the Rising Sun (a brand I can't help but Stan for) that I received a while ago and is my go to t-shirt. It has a great lived-in feel, a nice slub effect and a cool vintage-esque Cone Denim graphic.
Can we talk about how yummy the food at zimmer. no 01 was?
The rest of the weekend was just as nice full of food, friends and lounging about. I am lucky.
