Assembly New York Spring/Summer 2013 Presentation Review
It was a perfect Monday afternoon, the humidity had finally lifted its heavy hand, and a cool breeze traveling 25 miles per hour tousled our already crazy tangled manes (Mark is currently growing his hair out—young Demis Roussos-inspired, obviously). Our destination: The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking District for the Assembly New York presentation.

A Détacher Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Review
We felt like we were visiting an old, dear friend this evening. One who lives way over yonder on the way, way West Side of the island of Manhattan. We downtown East Siders ecstatically make this fashion pilgrimage twice a year to see brilliant Mona Kowalska’s collections at Pier 59 Studios.

Although we are technically a couple of weeks shy of the Autumnal Equinox, we’ve already shooed radiant summer away. Labor Day weekend quietly faded, washed away and New York Fashion Week emerged with a loud, sartorial boom. We’ll be back soon with a light sprinkling of our favorite collections from Spring 2013.

What I noticed first about Jamie Johnson’s work is that it didn’t really look like anything else I had seen. I came across his work on Flickr a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. The Edinburgh, Scotland based illustrator and artist works in a very specific style and color palette using watercolors, pen drawings, and collages.
