This was one of the most anticipated collections of the season for the fast fashion brand H&M and little did I know that demand was going to be this high. This is a snapshot of my day, woke-up at 6:30am CST, logged-on H&M and I was ready to buy an item, I was hoping to get at least 3 items but I would be fine with one if I was lucky..

PRZMAN Botanical beard oil, I really didn’t know what to expect. It was right before my Tokyo trip so, I packed it with all my supplies. The oil is very light almost like baby oil, the instruction calls for 2 drops into the palm of your hands and massage it into the beard. It goes on really lightly and puts a nice shine on the beard, you don’t notice it or feel it once it’s on.
Best of all, it did not leave a stain on my clothes which was great plus. I used the whole week while I was out and it quickly became second nature as a morning routine after I get out of the shower. It has an earthy kind of scent to it, I really don’t know how to describe it but it is a very pleasant scent that is not overbearing.

Overall, I’ll give this a A plus and it is something I would use.

Erika Cavallini Fall-Winter 2015/16 semi-couture Collection was presented in Milan and the inspiration was set to be “The day after the party” in a mix of wild spirit with liberating and chipped romance.
The models worked the runway in Mannish tailoring, floating volumes and air moving between the layers of gestural flower prints mixed with bold and geometric patterns. We see a wild inclusion of fabrics dynamically blended together Triple jacquard, muslin, crepe de chine, organza and boiled wool.
Franzel Amsterdam is an experimental street wear label based in Amsterdam
, as you would
guess from their name and don’t be fooled by the experimental definition. Eric Franzel is the designer and the AW15 collection is a reconstruction, reconfiguration, re-worked or repurpose of other garments into something new. You would notice I did not use recycle as one of the verbs to describe this collection, because this goes beyond that.
The collection is an assortment of fabrics from tents, carpets, kakis, curtains and other garments used to create something unique in the street wear look.
