Alex Drexler, son of Mickey Drexler and Somsack Sikhounmuong, former design director of J.Crew are the duo behind the fashion label, Alex Mill. They know a thing or two about American classics. Alex Mill will easily slide right into your closet with its crisp, clean, modern styles for both men and women. Pieces that should be worn on repeat and make a good case for a uniform look that is uncomplicated. You will not only appreciate the core wardrobe basics but the refreshing reasonable pricing that is right in line with the likes of J.Crew, Gap, and Everlane.
Here are four pieces that caught my attention. Love the button details on the cardi, the bows on the trench, and the khaki pants look super promising. Always in need of a white tee. https://www.alexmill.com/
One for the dudes! Men have it so damn easy and it just got easier with Alex Mill. You just can’t go wrong. The Camo jacket is a nice modern upgrade for the spring. Just round off the above look with a pair of Nike kicks or Allbirds. Done!
It is no secret that Uniqlo does it well. You can count on them for all your wardrobe essentials. They are committed to simple and functional designs for every day living at an affordable price. Also Uniqlo’s collaborations are consistently good. They partner with designers who understand their core values. Check out the Lemaire collaboration that just dropped. One to not miss! It is a collection of elevated basics found in warming tones and bold accents. The long sleeve pullover sweatshirt is a favorite. A simple no logo and well designed sweatshirt with a nice neckline is hard to find. One would think this is a simple task but not so much. Lemaire nailed it in my opinion with their updated version of U’s classic sweatshirt. The boxy relaxed silhouette with a mock collar is feminine and sporty. It is offered in five colors. The pink is pretty fab for spring! Check out the entire collection. I also like the simplicity of the ultra light puffy and the men’s black hoody (very nice!).
As I was searching for some inspiration for possible new sunglasses, I came across style icons Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway in The Thomas Crown Affair (great movie and will watch again on my upcoming trip). Not only the eyewear but the fisherman sweater, trench, headscarf, and neutral tones have me thinking they exude cool, perfect style. These pics also reaffirm that all these pieces should be in everyone’s wardrobe. They are timeless and classic. What else can I say? I just recently checked off the fisherman sweater and love it. I will be trying on the SM iconic style Persol’s 649- Originals as well as the ISBA from Oliver Peoples. Trenches and scarves, every stylish designer has their take in this department. So find your favorite and it will be worth the investment.
