Coming Saturday, Chad will hit the road for some old fashioned roadtrippin'. There will be a convertible waiting to enjoy the American scenic byways. The journey will start in Washington, DC via Shenandoah National Park & the Smokey Mountains, Chad will sing some country music in Nashville, TN. From there we conquer Atlanta, GA before heading to the coast. We will follow the coastline from Savannah, GA, via Charleston, SC all the way back to DC. As always I keep you posted.
Meet Mr. Brunello Cucinelli, the man who embodies the looks he creates on the mannequins. 9 out of 10 you see him pose with his hands in his pockets just like he dress his mannequins windows of his stores, showrooms and Pitti Uomo, but who is he?
Brunello Cucinelli (born 3 September 1953 at Castel Rigone) is an Italian fashion designer and eponymous chief executive of his brand, Brunelli Cucinelli. Cucinelli grew up in a rural agricultural community outside of Perugia. His childhood home had no electricity or running water. Cucinelli dropped out of engineering school at age 24, choosing instead to read philosophical texts on his own. Cucinelli's first product was cashmere sweaters which he dyed in bright colors. He founded Brunello Cucinelli SpA in 1978 with the Italian lira equivalent of about $550, after the initial public offering of Brunello Cucinelli SpA his personal net worth exceeded $1 billion. He donates up to 20% of his profits through the Brunello Cucinelli Foundation.
Life magazine, is an American magazine that ran weekly from 1883 to 1972, published initially as a humor and general interest magazine. Time founder Henry Luce bought the magazine in 1936, solely so that he could acquire the rights to its name. Life was a weekly news magazine with a strong emphasis on photojournalism. We all know these icon covers with JFK on a sailing boat and a sailor who kisses a nurse. I tried to look at their covers with a fashion eye and I found some great covers with fashion statements which are still relevant. Like the first cover with the Japan jacket, Ernest Hemingway in his striped T-shirt or Mr Fonda in his camel coat who for sure inspired Kanye West.
