Meet Jack Guinness

filed in Behind the Scenes, Creative Council, Culture, Style

If Jack Guinness so desired, he could hit a different party every night. Judging by the reports in the press, the British model, DJ and columnist – recognizable by his trademark beard, dapper style and sharp wit – sometimes does just that. Often seen out and about with an arm slung around one famous friend or other, having the time of his life, he documents his escapades in his online diary.

It’s away from the flashbulbs, though, that the real Guinness emerges – where, as he says, “there’s no one to impress,” only an inner circle of we-go-way-back friends. The fun happens around Jack’s Bar, which sits front and center in his East London apartment. “It might sound like a weird idea, but it’s one of my better ones,” grins Guinness. “It’s become a big part of any night for me and my friends. When Jack’s Bar opens, that’s where friendships flourish.” Indeed – these are the moments when Guinness really relaxes, loosens his tie and settles in for what we all know is the best part of any night. “It’s just us, setting the world to rights, playing our favorite songs on repeat,” he enthuses. “I’m spending time with my favorite people in the world. What could be better than that?” Not much.

Fall ’14 Seasonal Inspiration (part 2)

filed in Inspiration

Last week we unveiled our Inspiration for Fall ‘14: best-loved books. As promised, we’ll be featuring our favorite styles through the season, giving you the inside scoop on how these cherished stories came to life in our fall footwear. First up: The Adelaide boot. The classic silhouette took a walk on the wild side, taking cues from The Jungle Book. The boot features the mythical and feared “fire flower” – an imaginative and abstract element from the book that materialized via fierce studding. One thing’s for certain, the Adelaide will be right at home in the urban jungle this season.

A Classic Approach

filed in Creative Council

While it’s one of our absolute favorite shoes, for obvious reasons, the Classic boot can be a bit of a challenge for guys to style. To get a fresh take for fall, we reached out to Creative Council member Marcel of One Dapper Street – and he jumped at the opportunity. As with everything he wears, the styling seems completely effortless – giving us a few easy looks to up our game this season while wearing the Classic Mini Deco.

Corduroy is the New Black

filed in Creative Council, Uncategorized

All of us have had a love affair with the Classic boot. It’s a trusted staple in every gal’s wardrobe. For Creative Council member, Alicia Lund of Cheetah is the New Black, it all started with a trip abroad and a college boyfriend. A few years removed, that boyfriend is now her husband and she’s added a new classic to her arsenal of wardrobe essentials: the Classic Mini Bailey Bow … but this time in fall-perfect Corduroy.
