THE MANNEQUIN PARTY X JIPSY: FALL FASHION MEETS ART BASEL

Winter is a month away and Miami is still hot. However, the month of November has had its share of cool weather here and there. Those few days are perfect for me and you to embrace our peculiar fall season (FINALLY!) and have fun with thicker materials and layered looks.

Every year I look forward to fall’s mainstay fabric: corduroy. Corduroy pants dress up your overall look and are easy to rock with a nice sweater or crisp button-up, but I’ve never really tackled a full suit before. That is until men’s fashion bible, GQ, released a fall trends article on how The Suit of the Year was made of corduroy. Three words caught my interest: warm, affordable and crazy-soft – SOLD. And if that’s not enough to get your new suit shopping spree on, here’s another article – this time from Esquire – on “10 Pieces That Show Why Corduroy is the Official Fabric of Fall.

As soon as I scored my new wardrobe, I knew it was time for a shoot; but this time I wanted to take it to another level. Cut to my girl Jipsy and I reuniting for our second collab, getting lost in a fashion brainstorm session and wham, bam, thank you ma’am, we ended up with a really cool concept and AMAZING location.

Concept: A fall fashion fantasy ride to Art Basel. Location: An abandoned (POTUS!) train by Miami International Airport. Let’s play dress up!

The inspiration for my second look was Kanye West. Hate Mr. Kardashian all you want, but one thing is for certain: he’s got style! More here: The Kanye West Guide to God-Level Fashion (LOL). Truthfully, I was really excited to finally wear my biggest thrifting score to date: a pristine and delicious Calvin Klein camel coat.

My new editorial collaboration with Jipsy also depicts early inspirations of my desired men’s fashion looks for Art Basel. That’s right, MANnequins, Miami’s most glorious time of the year is officially one week away. By the way, stay tuned for daily – well, it really depends on how bananas the previous night’s event was – posts for street fashion, art and fun. Baby steps, Gino. Baby steps.

Again, a million THANK YOUs to my darling Jipsy. She is so talented and amazingly creative, and I can’t wait for us to work together again soon. X
