The Daft Punk concert with The Rapture, Busy P Sebastian and Kavinsky was incredible!
We left Daft Punk a bit early to get into the after party put on by A.D/D, except last minute they decided to sell tickets and were no longer selling them at the door. Faaak it sucked being downtown at like 11 expecting to get in, except it doesn’t work out like that. And because it was Sunday hardly any other bars were even open. We eventually found one and had a drink. Generally it was an OK evening, not what was planned but you deal with it.
There are photos of the D.P. After Party on Shark Vs. Bear it seems that everyone was having a good time.
Anyhow while browsing Men.Style.com I cam across the designer Tim Hamilton. He doesn’t have a site for his collection yet but you can find his “10 Essentials” and his Fall 07 line on Men.Style.com.
Here’s some background on Tim Hamilton taken from Style.com
From the Beat poets to his father’s own Midwestern style, Tim Hamilton’s inspirations have blue-collar bona fides not often found in the high-end boutiques where his clothes now hang. More a tension than a contradiction—what’s more American than striving?—the juxtaposition entirely suits his background: an Iowa-born designer who’s done stints at both Ralph Lauren and J.Crew. Yet it’s the way he transcends these influences—rugged Americana, Ivy League prep—that’s earned him accolades: The designer was nominated for the CFDA’s 2007 Swarovski Award for up-and-coming talent.
For Fall, Hamilton updates his preppy leanings with a muted color palette and rugged materials. His intricately woven knits, for instance, are handcrafted in Italy yet cut in a modern, almost rumpled style. There’s also a Japanese silk jersey shirt with a dash of prep from the crest on its breast—what a coal-mining Harry Potter might wear on the weekends. Elsewhere, a hoodie is given the waxed-cotton treatment usually reserved for bomber jackets, while a sweater includes a snap-off collar, which means it can be worn as either a turtleneck or a crew. Hamilton dresses down a wool blazer with a carefully concealed zipper, and moves equally adeptly in the other direction, taking a lumberjack coat upscale by giving it a blazerlike feel and smart button-down hip pockets. It’s the most overt Kerouac reference in the collection, and it emphasizes the Hamilton silhouette: skinny but not too skinny pants paired with an artfully rumpled look up top.
