Blogger darby said ... (12:56 PM) : 

What a gracious, friendly evening you hosted. So lovely to meet Garance Dore as well. Smiles all around, democratic and embracing of everyday chic folks... that is what fashion, retail and magazines should be all about. Elitism does not inspire people outside the fashion world to shop and put on their best..but you do. The success of your launch and the following you have are well deserved. Let's keep spreading the word.
We love you - Darby and Solange

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! the photos are absolutely beautiful, especially the second one(you and garance look so cute together).Unfortunetely I can´t buy the book because the shipping will be more expensive the the book, and the change from pesos to dollars o euros isn´t good for me.Good luck.
Love your blog (and Garance´s)

Blogger UES boy said ... (4:55 PM) : 

Just looking back at that photo of Lino, and I noticed something interesting....his hands.

I've been figure drawing since I was 7 and I rarely see hands that interesting and intricate looking. They're calloused looking, wiry and brutish. And the way they clasp that stemware offsets their nature beautifully.

Lots of interesting body language going on!

Thats why I think he's so damn cool, its because you can tell he's done many things in life other than just run a clothing store.

I just love it when a person's body language and clothes reflect their real personality. You can tell Lino and others in these photos are extremely comfortable walking around in what they wore.

Hey Sart, you look good, your lady looks good. You guys have similar cheek/chin structure...looking good. Hey don't forget to come to San Francisco. I just got off the phone with my dad's ole friend Dr. Ceasar Churchwell, asking him if he had a child/grandchild named Crystal. The world is smaller than we think and we are more alike than not...Ciao.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:39 PM) : 

i didn't realize what a handsome man you are. even nicer that you enjoy looking at others rather than having the world look at you.

the additional snaps are great way to see how fashion is lived in, to see it in it's function in addition to the captured moments.
