What is Press Day? Good question!

Press day in Milan is like having the best closets in the city open their doors and ask you to come in and cop a feel.  I know, great, right?

Hedi Slimane Photo of the Week: Back to Simple

You might wonder why I've chosen a nude for the Hedi Slimane post.

Models and Men: Martin Vansuit Conte

So one of the cool things about my job as Editor-In-Chief is that I get to meet people.
But the people I meet tend to be extraordinarily beautiful.  And while not everyone is beautiful inside and out sometimes I am lucky and I do meet one of those inside-outside-beautiful people.
So I interview them for my magazine, ROUGH Italia.

And here I will only give you the best parts.  The pieces I loved the most from my interviews.


 So let's start with one of my favorite people, Martin Vansuit Conte.

YSL by Hedi Slimane : Revisited

I have to eat my words.  while I still cringe at the sight of the show (I still don't like it) i hate to have  to admit that the man knew.  he knew before everyone else.  and he made it fashionable.  that's right, "Fast Fashion".

and now fast fashion starts on the runway, and from Vogue's lips to bloggers hips the reinterpretation begins.
