With the celebration of the latest exhibit, PUNK: Chaos and Couture, at The MET Gala, now would be the perfect time to introduce you guys to GIENCHI. While I was living in Italy for the past four months I was on mission to discover new brands/designers and bring them back to the states to share them with you guys! I was fortunate enough to attend Milan Fashion Week this year, and that's where I was introduced to GIENCHI, a footwear brand offering retro with-the-right-amount-of-grunge kicks. During MFW, they were seen on editors, fashion influencers and fellow bloggers! If you're a stud or grunge lover like I, these kick ass kicks were made for you! The shoes above are from GIENCHI's latest collection, Punk in Africa. They're available in different fabrics such as canvas, suede, metallic leather and pony skin. If you love 'em as much as I do, I strongly suggest you check them out, they're available at ASOS, Luisaviaroma and YOOX.

Here's a peek into London's BEST, that's complete understatement, department store in all the land, Selfridge. I have been to multiple shops in London including Harrods and Harvey Nichols, yet nothing can compare to the treasures found in Selfridge. The department store is filled with top designers and brands such as Dries van Noten, Acne, Comme des Garcons, Ricks Owens and Lanvin, in addition to street-wear brands like Boy London, Blood Brother and Hype Means Nothing. The next time you're in London be sure to visit Selfridge, even if you're unable to afford anything, there is still much to see and enjoy, from the impeccable displays to the racks on racks of Margiela heaven and Givenchy goodness. The photos above don't really do any justice to how great this store actually is. Start planning your trip to London, but in the meantime you can visit and shop the Selfridge site, click here, get your credit cards ready

Jeans- J Brand | Shoes - To Boot New York
4.5 months later, and I'm back in my favorite playground I call home, New York! Before I left Europe I had to make one last stop and visit one of the fashion capitals in the world, London. This might come to a complete shock to many of you, but London is possibly the best place on earth to shop, yes, even better than New York. The street art is pretty dope too. When you do visit London, a piece of advice as I know from experience, be sure to pack light or expect to buy another luggage like I. To find great finds and treasures be sure to visit Camden Gardens, in addition to New Bond Street, Regents Street, and of course, Oxford street. I wandered the streets of London (with) Kate Moss AKA my Eleven Paris shirt, which I bought in Paris, I wonder what gave that away. Speaking of Eleven Paris, they recently opened up their first shop in London on Carnaby Street! I completed my ensemble with a pair of white J Brand jeans, a navy blazer and the most comfortable shoes I own.
