On Abbot Kenney with Steve Alan Comments | Aug 16 2008

Steve Alan LA

SteveAlan_shirt

I have been meaning to blog about the designer Steve Alan but have never really got around to it. While strolling around Venice we headed down Abbot Kenney in Venice Beach we came across Steve Alan store. Steve Alan’s store resembled the A.P.C. flagship store in SoHo NYC. It had a rustic cabin coziness. The colors were natural and earthly with unfinished hardwood all while keeping a slight influence of a “beach house”.

Steve Alan is located:
1601 Abbot Kinney Blvd.
Venice, CA 90291
310-452-3413

One of the standout aspect of Steve Alan’s designs are the wonderful tailoring and unique but simplistic choice of textiles

The store not only carried Steve Alan Collection but A.P.C., Wings + Horns and others were available.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA. Comments | Aug 06 2008

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

Komakino Store - Vancouver CA.

While searching for information about the label Komakino I came across a boutique in Vancouver Canada coincidentally called Komakino as well. The boutique carries a broad range of high end labels including Ann Demeulemeester, Damir Doma, Gianni Barbato, Julius, Number (N)ine, Passarella Death Squad, Raf Simons, Rick Owens, Sak, Simeon Farrar, The Viridi-Anne, and Undercover.

It seems the idea of the Guerrilla store started by COMME des GARÇONS.

I just want to point out they have a very functional and visually simplistic online store located here.

The Komakino Gurrilla Store is located 109 West Cordova St Gastown Vancouver Canada.

Canadian Mens Wear Comments | May 28 2008

I know that there are great boutiques through out Canada but the two that come to my mind when I hear the term mens wear are Nomad Shop - Toronto and Reborn - Montreal. These two stores carry progressive international labels only found in a select boutique’s throughout the world. Some of my favorite labels brought to Canada by one or the other of these two stores are Comme des GarçonsCommon ProjectsCorpus ClothingNom De GuerreRobert GellerRoganSupremeSurface To Air, Visvim and W+H all available at Nomad Shop. At Reborn we have Henrik VibskovFifth Avenue Shoe RepairRaf Simons.

 I have never yet been to Reborn however Nomad is one of the best stores in Toronto I feel. Great service, great labels and a very humble interior.
