Issey Miyake Inspired Summer Look
After picking a few seasonal items from Opening Ceremony and COS last weekend, it’s time to go for a photoshoot. Where can we find the perfect background to capture your effortless style? SoHo will do.
My weekly selection of fashion items are the basic tee by PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE, a Japanese brand known for its technology-driven clothing designs, pinstripe boxing shorts by Opening Ceremony and sneakers by Adidas.
Issey Miyake’s basic tee carries its typical elements of minamalism and geometricism. The polyester shirt is crisply pleated like the interior of a cardboard. The silhouette is straight and structured, but the stretchy pleat gives the wearer a chance to shape the shirt according to his body. The design is innovative and technology oriented. For the HOMME PLISSÉ ISSEY MIYAKE Spring/Summer 2016 collection, many of these iterations transform cozy athleisure staples into modern-casual classics.
The pinstripe boxing shorts are by Opening Ceremony. They are actually on sale and are still in stock. Bulky pants have set its trend in 2016. As long as the length is right (below your calf), and that you wear it a little above your waist, bulky pants do a good job on emphasizing your height and your legs.
At the end of our photoshoot, we visited Dominique Ansel Bakery, renowned for its innovative dessert, Cronut. Dominique Ansel Bakery also serves tasty cookie shots starting at three in the afternoon. They usually get sold out early, but we were lucky to still buy a few by 4. The chocolate chip cookie cup is gooey and soft, and the milk is slightly sweetened. Perfect combination! Besides those, we also ordered a frozen smore, a slightly tarred marshmallow wrapped in vanilla ice cream!
I hope you have a great fourth of July weekend! Happy Independence Day!
