40 Years Of Timberlands

What you know about Timberland boots? I know that as a college student, my favorites and the ones I purchased at least once a year was the "beef and brocoli". If you don't know what thay is...well, you're gonna have to look it up for yourself.

Did you know that the classic yellow boot has been around for 40 years? Wow! What an accomplishment! And they are still oh so very important in the style community. Check out photos from last weeks' event.

Dozens of boots hang from the ceiling at the Timberland Workshop on Wednesday 9/25.   The brand unveiled its Fall collections and celebrated the 40th Anniversary of its classic yellow boot in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) NY.

Complex Fashion Editor, Matthew Henson, poses with the Timberland Abington Collection and classic leather Timberland jackets. Matthew’s style and influences inspired a mini Timberland showroom which included some of his favorite fashion staples.

Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean, poses with his Timberland showroom at The Workshop event, inspired by classic heritage style. Michael is wearing the Timberland Earthkeepers Rugged 6 inch Waterproof Boot.

Photographer Noah Kalina inspired the design of the Timberland Earthkeepers Heritage showroom at The Workshop in Williamsburg. Noah’s love for the outdoors calls for rugged outerwear and boots that can withstand the harsh cold New England winters.  You can check out Noah in action in his latest video with Timberland, Into the Trees.

Cadillac Elmiraj Concept - AutomotiveSTYLE

Revealed at Pebble Beach and then brought to NYC for a on-night-only appearance, the Cadillac Elmiraj Concept really is the purest definition of Car Porn if I've ever seen it!

I'm always excited by any opportunity to see a new, and outspokenly gorgeous car but this is one that I'm wondering if they actually put it into production, when seen out on the street if people would assume they have entered the 24th century! It is head and shoulders above the rest in style and technology...there's no denying that!

"A modern update to the classic format of a two-door grand coupe, Elmiraj provides a look inside the
Cadillac Studio to see how our designers envision performance and luxury for the next generation of luxury drivers. The long dash-to-axle front profile, a Cadillac signature, gives the coupe a performance-oriented form. The long wheelbase and clean bodyside characterizes the car’s spacious dimensions and elevated status."

It is literally beautiful from every angle and what about the interior? Well, let's take a look!

I think it even made my reflection as well as that of my date for the evening (one of my favorite chicas to hang out with) look even better than usual. Wouldn't you agree? And it's all about the details...

Great job Gael Buzyn, lead interior designer for the Cadillac Elmiraj concept!!!

...And you know me. I've gotta pose with the most popular man in the room as many times as possible. We make a fabulous couple!

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2014 - PFW

You betta work Jean Paul Gaultier! Said with the clap of a hand at every single word (for emphasis) and hat's really putting my feelings about this collection very mildly. It gave me rocker, chic, grunge yet still somehow convinced me that each look was absolutely downright lovely. Great job on a fabulously daring collections.

Maison Martin Margiela Spring 2014 - Paris Fashion Week

It's all over the runways these days...the masculine/feminine look and Maison Martin Margiela did it well.  Paris Fashion Week is still underway and this was certainly one of my favorite collections. The fabrications are luxe, the colors are rich and a woman wearing any one of these looks is not only right on trend, she is also the chicest of the chic in the room.
