“In Theory Everything is Possible”

The fit of ones clothes is beyond important.  Thus plain = good; when well tailored…even if your Amish.  Theory makes this fact rather than stipulation.    Selections from what they label ‘Crisp and Clean’ (mens) & ‘The Spring Suit’ (womens).












Where to find:  Barney’s,  Nordstrom, Mercer


Richard Blayne – Seattle Fashion Week

April 26, 2009


 Blayne Walsh, contestant on Project Runway 5 unveiled his Fall/Winter 2009 on the final day of Seattle Fashion Week. 

The resulting motif = Tribe of Blayne.  


Blayne Quotes:

“urban but not overdone” 

“modern street wear in very bright colors”

  “neon for life”  



“Aside from Naomi B. and Blaine Walsh, most of the collections lacked a vision or focus.” 

A quote taken from the Seattle PI columist Stacy Lucier – see link for a summation of her impressions and thoughts of Seattle Fashion Week. 

 That wraps up SFW09.   

Overall I agree with Ms. Lucier & her disposition on the overall legitimacy of SFW–sorry guys


Lavsh – Seattle Fashion Week

April 19, 2009

Seattle Fashion Week 2009

Thursday Night Featured Independent Artists.  One label that stood out was Lavsh by Alfred Lape

Lape is a very driven, disciplined and focused 25 year-old self taught fashion designer.  Talking with him for 5-minutes or even observing his demeanor reflects this.  Likewise, his clothes demonstrate his ability and inspiration of individuality and luxury in the garments he handcrafts.   Taken from Tom Ford, “True Luxury is found in clothing that has been shaped and honed by human hand,” Lape holds true to this as he is responsible for selection of fabrics, design, sketching and production.  One-of-a-kind garmets are available for purchase. Overall I applaud Lavsh & their ingenuity in modern menswear.   My only question is, does he ever take off his shades?
