BTS of Elements of SS16: Capturing the Chinoiserie Trend with @AlejandroEmilio_

By now, I’m hoping you’ve all gotten a chance to check out my Elements of Spring/Summer 2016 menswear trend report. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s a totally new take on my usual series—this time around, I shot some of my favorite style bloggers and influencers in the season’s biggest trends and put together a free downloadable e-book with our tips and tricks to help you nail your looks in the months ahead. Of course, there was only so much I could include in the guide, but thankfully, there’s plenty of space here to share some of the extra photos that got cut.

First up: chinoiserie, which you can read all about [here].

One of the best parts about this project, besides getting to be behind the camera for a change, was working with new colleagues. Alejandro’s one of my favorite guys on Instagram. New to New York, but no stranger to style, he’s got a dope eye, a sweet take on minimal fashion, and an awesome personality that made shooting him an awesome experience. I’m definitely looking forward to teaming up again this summer. -J

Take Me [Back] to London: New Dimensions

Like I said in my last post, I came across some AMAZING architecture throughout jolly ol’ London Town. Honestly, it was probably one of the most inspiring parts of my trip. The innovative designs in and around Camden and SoHo were totally captivating—I couldn’t stop looking up! It made me feel like I was experiencing the city for the first time all over again. Trust me when I say you’d get tired of scrolling if I uploaded all of my photos, but I went ahead and included my faves below. -J
