Elegant, stylish and debonair to boot, Durand Guion is a walking style icon – literally. In his signature jackets – always perfectly pressed mind you – this jet-setting mastermind knows how to “put it all together” better than anyone and raises the sartorial bar for guys (and gals, too!) everywhere he travels. Be it Toronto or Tokyo, let’s just say heads turn.
Naturally, when he offered to blog for us, we nearly jumped out of our studded smoking slippers at the chance to share tidbits of his fashion savoir faire with you, our dear readers. Each month, he’ll be giving us a hint of insight into his Überglam lifestyle and the industry exclusives he’s privy to. Read on to find out what’s got this Macy’s Men’s Fashion Director – and us – all abuzz for the month of November….
Pick #1 Clarks Quilted Wallabee
Our creative juices were flowing on a recent trip to Boston for a visit with the Clarks design team. While there, we were inspired by the current trend of quilted outerwear and worked to develop a special edition of the iconic Wallabee. The result – a combination of quilted nylon, contrast stitching and brightly colored laces all on the classic crepe sole – is one of the most exciting shoes of the season! We think you’ll agree. Available at select Macy's locations.
Pick #2: Sean John Fashion Video Name Tag
While investigating the latest trends at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, we discovered a palm sized video unit that runs on the latest OLED technology. Inspired, we thought of a brilliant idea: Why not incorporate the video unit into clothing?
We decided to team up with the designers at Sean John to create a shawl collar fleece sweater with a windowed pouch on the sleeve. The Fashion Video Name Tag inserts into the pouch and offers continuous play of customized downloaded video content. Wearable electronics is the next big thing – it’s a game changer. Just think of all the attention you'll get at the clubs!
Pick #3: Tallia Orange Slim Peacoat
Baby, it is cold outside – and a peacoat is all you'll need to keep fashionably warm. One of the best this season is from Tallia Orange. A slimmer fit in bold red and black plaid, this is our pick to create a warming trend on even the coldest of days.
