Thank You

Thank you all for your kind comments and support.  My father would have been very touched, and slightly embarrassed by all the attention.

I just arrived in Melbourne and will start shooting downtown today - I mean tomorrow - or later today U.S. time. Wait, what time is it?

Sartorialist #1 - Earl Schuman

My Father passed away last week.

I won't try to write about what he meant to me, because I am not a good enough writer to express that level of sentiment. He was simply the single most influential figure in my life. Even though everyone has always said,  "you're just like your Dad," I never really tried to follow in his footsteps. He gave me that freedom very openly. However, he was a writer, director, producer and occasional on-screen talent - and guess what, I somehow ended up doing most of the same things.  

While going through old photographs last week I found a set of images from around 1964 or 1965. My Dad had an assignment to report on the movie projects that were currently filming all over Europe. He was to interview the big stars of the day and produce small segments for the local Florida TV station. I have always thought of my Dad as more of a writer than director so it was so surprising to see snaps of him with a movie camera in his hand looking absolutely chic - in a lot of the same places that I now visit.

Here is my Dad (wearing the sunglasses and some very early Prada) on the set of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum."

Here he is in the foothills of Rome. I don't know which movie he was covering there, but I do remember him telling me that while on the set of "Doctor Zhivago" he lost his camera in a huge drift of fake snow.

Here he is arriving in Madrid.

OK, that is enough with the old family photos.

My Dad was the #1 fan of this blog. Everyday he looked at the new posts and would read every comment.

However, my dad wasn't a blind cheerleader. When he felt I wasn't living up to my potential he let me know it, in no uncertain terms. I thank him for that.

Finally, I would like to thank my two sisters and my Mom. They were the perfect team to go through this with. I learned something new about the strength of each one of them, and about the depth of love that a family can have for one another. Thank you.

In keeping with my Dad's tradition of exotic, chic travel, I am off to Australia tonight. I will report from Melbourne and Sydney. If I get a sign-off soon I will also visit Sao Paulo this month.

Style Profile...Romney Leader, NYC

Romney Leader

Associate Fashion Editor,

Best Sartorial advice from your parents?
Never be afraid to do your own thing.

Style icons?
Tina Chow, Anita Pallenberg, Iris Apfel

Describe your personal style...
Constantly evolving! I tend to have a favorite piece or silhouette I wear constantly until something else catches my eye. I also hate looking like I put much thought into it or looking too ‘done.’ Style-wise it’s a mix of everything that’s influenced me aesthetically: growing up in Texas, living and working in New York, and all of the music and cultures I took a liking to in my early years.

I build my daily look around?
Comfort, for sure - and my schedule for the day. If I’m not wearing flats or boots I have a pair close at hand, and even though I hate the cold weather I love the way the right coat adds the finishing touch to a look.

Personal Style quirk?
I nick pants and shirts from my boyfriend’s closet constantly, and I don’t think there’s such a thing as jewelry that’s too chunky.

Favorite designers?
Ann Demeulemeester, Yohji Yamamoto, Martin Margiela…anyone who does their own thing and is effortlessly on point without coming across as overly trendy.

Most cherished item?
My engagement ring and my grandfather’s felt fedora.

Never caught wearing?
Halter tops.

Most underrated item in menswear/womenswear?
The perfectly tailored woven shirt, the slouchy trouser, and the leather biker jacket.

Dress to impress who?
Strangers or my boss…ha…though really it’s my own reflection I’m most after.

Flats or heels?
I’m a huge advocate of flats- I don’t think heels necessarily make you look more put together.

Favorite stores?
Barneys for one-stop; Camden Market or one of the many vintage stores along the Texas highways for treasures, and sample sales…

Your next "must have" purchase?
Ann Demeulemeester lace-up open boots, a Lanvin silk trench, one of the Dries Van Noten metallic ball necklaces, and a pair of those Dolce silk “pajama” pants.

I skimp when buying ...
If I’m test-driving a trend (say, harem pants) I head to Zara. I also cheap out on leggings, scarves, and denim.

I splurge on...
Sweaters, pants, woven shirts- anything that benefits from tailoring and luxe fabrics.

Favorite item of clothing?
Currently: ultra wide-leg cropped pants from 3.1, black Balenciaga sweater that flares out at the sides, and a wool military-inspired vest from Camilla & Marc.

Favorite fashion magazines?
Vogue and Teen Vogue

Favorite (style) books?
I find home décor books more inspiring than anything, especially ones like ‘Tony Duquette.’

Favorite stylish movies?
The Royal Tenenbaums and Annie Hall.

Favorite vacation spot?
Vieques, PR and the south of France.

Favorite neighborhood restaurant?
Diner and Aurora (both in Williamsburg).

We're hitting that time of year when a chunky cardigan is, maybe, all you need for outerwear.

This is the first time I have seen a men's jacket with a peplum-ish waist detail that looks reasonably normal.
