Fashion week is in full swing here in New York. Besides drastically improving the ratio of tall beautiful women walking the streets, it also means a lot of long nights and days for our staff as we check out what’s to come from major men’s brands. First up on our list of events, Billy Reid’s after-party thrown in conjunction with Gilt Group in celebrating the launch of their new men’s blog, Gilt MANual. Hosted at Billy’s southern-tastic Bond Street boutique, we spent plenty of time enjoying Woodford Reserve poured from vintage crystal decanters and marveling the looks of the city’s most fashionable denizens. In attendance were a cast of men’s fashion writers we know and respect including the creative minds behind: A Continuous Lean, The Impossible Cool, Mister Mort, and Por Homme. Naturally, we snapped a few pictures of the evening’s happenings which we’ve shared on the next page. You can even catch a picture of us with Billy Reid himself. Special thanks to Gilt for having us out, and expect to see more coverage of Fashion Week events soon.
