Man-Up Monday: Stylish Cuts

Going to Gabby’s Barbershop is like traveling back in time for an hour—Big band jazz classics, pistachio green walls, beards long overdue and too much testosterone. This neighbourhood men’s salon has been in business since the mid-eighties in Belmont, one of Chicago’s hippest areas. You go in, write your name in the chalkboard and wait for your name to be called, enjoying the music and vintage ambience. Jocks, hipsters, kids and the coolest businessmen hand themselves into one of the five barbers, certain they will end up looking sharp as ever. For only $16 you can get one of the trendiest cuts of the season, like the “Disconnection”—shorter on the sides, long on top—, the “pompadour,” or a vintage Don Drapper classic. So bring cash and take your time—you’ll be lucky if you wait less than thirty minutes, but we promise even the waiting here is stylish.

John Galliano for Martin Margiela

John Galliano

It’s been three years since John Galliano disappeared from the fashion radar, after controversial behavior which lead to his termination from Dior and penalties from the French police. It is admirable though, to see how the designer apologized to the public, stating that he wanted to fix things in small steps so as to undo as much damage as possible. Looking for a second chance, the time has come, as he’s been appointed Creative Director of Maison Martin Margiela. His collection will be presented in January.

Model Spotlight: Rianne ten Haken

Not just anyone can say that they started their career by walking a Marc Jacobs fashion show, and at the age of 16 to top it off. However, Rianne ten Haken has been there, done that. Now in her late twenties, a revival of Haken has been seen with periodicals, music videos, and runway shows. Her ability to transform is absolutely mesmerizing, and we can’t wait to see more of her in the near future!

Jean Paul Gaultier’s Last RTW Collection

Jean Paul Gaultier

The world of fashion bid adieu to John Paul Gaultier, as he sent off his last Ready-to-Wear collection down the runway. Thankfully, the designer is doing this to focus on haute couture and fragrance collections, to which he explained he had a certain fondness for their ability to let him be more expressive and experimental. The tight deadlines of commercial RTW constrained such creativity. A jubilant Gaultier said waved goodbye at the end of the show, and thus we cannot help but feel happy for his decision.
