I see you Mr. Suave! What’s put that new-found pep in your step?
It must be one of this season’s new crop of smoothly agreeable shoes with designs embodying the Alpha male idea of style! Whether a well-groomed style connoisseur or a “quasi” admirer of all things shoes, these bold designs will set all hearts a-flutter!
This season, Lanvin brings street style to luxury. Navy paired with suede resuscitate lace-ups. New designers Android Homme and Ron Donovan set a pace and precedence, leaving seasoned trendsetters stammering for new ideas. So that said, I hope you have the guts to gain the glory this season.
And as always, I’m…
Honeys, I know you can’t wait to open this edition of our bi-annual shoe report, so I will keep my blurb short and stylishly sweet…
The sweet smell of leather, wood, cork and blah, blah, blah; oh who cares about the fabulous details let the shoes speak for themselves. Doggone it, I for one can smell a great pair of shoes five miles away and two, I bid adieu to my rambling chatter, let the slide show begin and blow your intelligent mind.
It’s time to sing the praises of the retail angels! We have a new darling among us and it’s on four large wheels. There I was in Studio City on Saturday afternoon, driving down Ventura Boulevard minding my business, when I saw it: the most clever and exciting idea to hit Los Angeles in a long time.
William B + Friends Mobile Fashion Outlet
This is not only a fashionably clever idea but they have single-handedly changed the game of the “Sample Sale” experience. Owners Linda and Nick Deleo have created an interior experience you would not expect from a boutique on wheels. Serving great attention to detail from the scent and lighting to the layout, you’ll certainly forget you are in an RV. Most impressively, not only do they carry their namesake brand, they have partnered with favorites like Paper Denim & Cloth, Rock & Republic and Sigerson Morrison. If that is not enough to tickle your retail fancy, take note that mostly everything is under $150!
The William B + Friends mobile outlet may be making stops at a street, event, office or studio lot near you. So Honeys, upon seeing the truck, please drive responsibly… it’s easy to forget traffic laws when you see this gorgeous big yellow outlet on wheels!

It took a bit of time for me to create this report for you Handsome Honeys. Enveloped in the rapture of the new styles that evoke the debonair swag that ladies admire most, I’m thrilled to introduce you to those trends that you’ll be able to adopt into your wardrobe effortlessly.
Spring brings fine tailoring in a RELAXED structure on SINGLE BUTTON and DOUBLE BREASTED BLAZERS – must haves for 2011. This season, blazers are not only suited formally but are offered in varied fabrics from linen and cotton to soft, lightweight LEATHER, all paired casually with khaki trousers or denim and LANVIN sneakers.
Demonstrate this Spring’s trend of the MINIMAL STATEMENT that less is more by adding a LOOSE fitting TEXTURED crew or cotton v-neck sweater with a well tailored cotton twill pant.
Expect uniform and monochromatic color inspired outfits in STONE, BEIGE and KHAKI, complimented easily by TOBACCO BROWNS, BLUES (Sky or Slate Blue), YELLOW and BURGUNDY. SIMON SPURR & CALVIN KLEIN introduced their Spring Collections by adding these unexpected pops to traditional NEUTRALS.
Rough and disheveled exemplify confidence and strength for the stylish modern guy. Shirts with COLOR CONTRASTING DETAILS are worn over faded and DISTRESSED denim shorts and pants. Favorite designers, PRADA and ROBERT GELLER add reversible or leather trim for contrasting accents on canvas ZIP FRONT and BASEBALL JACKETS.
FALL 2011 is going to be even more exciting and inspiring with dark and warm hues coupled with the season’s color, GRAY. Keep an eye out for these pairings as designers add a punch of CAMEL, RUST (Warm Orange) or BLACK for the classic man. GRAY is not just for apparel anymore, it’s for your accessories, sneakers, first class shoes (lace ups, loafers), duffle bags, briefcases and watches.
This year offers exciting colors and diverse trends that will influence your style. There’s no excuse not to push your style boundaries. Make me proud, Handsome Honeys. The ladies need you to do this. Send a note to our comments page or tweet me @TrendspotterLux with an image of how you’ve incorporated these trends into your lifestyle. If you have questions, I’m more than happy to assist. As a former stylist and agent to some amazing creative talent, know that I’m watching you (smile and a wink).
