Last week we went to the 13th edition Nylon Magazine party at Smashbox, WeHo (West Hollywood). You know I love a good party but wow, I am not sure if this one was as good as they usually do it! Apart from standing in line for 30 minutes just for a questionable vodka tonic next to, a smaller than I thought but still very cute, Emile Hirsch, there were a lot of great sights to see.
I love these guys. Camp as you like they were adorably sweet and absolutely ‘gave me some’ for their quick picture I took of them. I know this is a bit out there but I love how daring and bold they have been. Bringing the Vanilla Ice theme back with a twist – who’d have thought that shiny leggings on a man with sporty silver tap shoes and white T would work, it does (he has got great toneage I must say!). His friend rocked out those silver booties and mixing leather with denim and check really stood out.
There seems to be a trend for shiny shoes right now. I saw at least 10 guys really donning the look, lighting up the dull concrete floor as they budged for a beverage. This party didn’t see much of the dapper, Alan Cumming suit and tie theme. This was edgy, vibrant and bright; it was kind of like an exploration of MC Hammer meets Fame meets 2012 Zara or H and M.
Tom and I did feel like we were the oldest people there. No sign of the 70’s kids; a room full of fame hungry models or children of successful producers and photographers.
I met this great designer called Pigeon Dave, who teamed his new brand, ‘The Renegades’ with vintage pieces he has stumbled upon over the years. His bowler hat with glasses and a full beard matched the funky red bow tie and shirt topping the look off with an ‘own design’ denim sleeveless jacket and red jeans with trainers sassed the outfit up and met with today’s current trend. This designer duo deserves a whole page to themselves so watch this space for more of ‘The Renegades’ collection next week.
I will just be coming back from the chilly Big Bear after a fun fuelled couple of days with friends for a birthday so I’m sure they’ll be some awesome pics to go through on my reurn.
Til next time, from LA...
P.S Had to introduce the new addition to the Webb family. This is adorable Reggie!
