Literary Bad Boy Bret Easton Ellis Stars in Persol's Latest Ad Campaign

Few writers can get away with what Bret Easton Ellis can. The literary world's very own enfant terrible has made a career out of chronicling the stories of glamorous-on-the-outside-fucked-up-on-the-inside types from Wall Street serial killers (American Psycho) to morally bankrupt college students (Less Than Zero) to vapid models tricked into espionage (Glamorama). Through all this, Ellis made himself into a celebrity of sorts—the strange embodiment of the eighties and nineties excess he wrote about. The Italian eyewear company Persol enlisted Ellis for its latest campaign, for the four-piece collection called Typewriter Edition. The frame design takes its cues from the see more

Coachella's Best-Dressed Guys Are the Ones Wearing Real Clothes [Updated]

We get that it's warm in California this time of year, which is why there were so many shirtless Instagram photos taken at Coachella this weekend. And that has a lot to do with why the best-dressed guys there happened to be the ones wearing actual clothing. Because while we respect the effort (and the high level of self-confidence) that it takes to wear nothing more than metallic spandex tights and a pair of suspenders in public, we also recognize that that's not style. That's costume. Below, the guys who got it right and the guys who wore things this see more

Oh, These? They're Just Your New Summer Jeans

Your weekend wardrobe just got a new addition. Yes, of course you have plenty of jeans already, but it's doubtful you have a pair of Lean Deans from the Swedish denim brand Nudie Jeans because, well, they were released today. Keeping with the label's Nordic design ethos (clean with an emphasis on perfecting the details), the new fit is slim through the leg and tapers ever so slightly from the knee down through the bottom. And while—as the name implies—it's a lean fit, don't confuse that for skinny. Think of this as the Everyman's slim-fit. Denim nerds who are see more

Why You Should Consider Renting Your Next Luxury Watch

As the first employee of Marquis Jets back in 2001, Randy Brandoff had what he describes as a "front-row seat to the rise of the luxury collaborative model." Marquis, now a part of NetJets, gave its members access to a fleet of private jets without shelling out the big bucks required to own one of their own. As that business model was replicated and applied to luxury assets across the board, from Inspirato vacation rentals, to Rent the Runway and Classic Car Club, Brandoff saw one category no one had touched yet: high-end watches. "I was passionate about watches, see more

Fendi Endorses Wearing Suits With Sandals, Leather Jackets at the Beach

To celebrate the launch of their spring/summer 2015 collection, Italian label Fendi released a video featuring their warm-weather wares, appropriately shot at the beach (in Spain). Directed by Alex Tacchi, the video, below, gets up-close with some of the brand's more intricate pieces, like a jacket made of multicolored strips of woven leather. Other highlights are the quirky bags, the energetically patterned knitwear, a bomber decorated with two eyes, the label's headphone collaboration with Beats By Dre, and—most surprisingly—the strong case it makes for taking the formality out of your summer suit by pairing it with a pair of see more

If It's Good Enough for Bill Cunningham, It's Good Enough for You

Among fashion figures who have been elevated to godlike status, one sticks out—and for good reason. Bill Cunningham is unarguably the founding father of street style, an encyclopedia of fashion history, an avid devotee of the rag trade, and possibly the most charming man to have ever lived. Oh, and he's a New York Times columnist who chronicles the city's love affair with clothing. Despite his dedication to (and outright glee about) the more fantastical aspects of the fashion industry, Cunningham himself is a model of austerity when it comes to his personal style. But like a true icon, he see more

Derek Zoolander Walked in the Valentino Show Today

If fashion is anything, it's a funny business. And yet it's not too often that you see insiders poking fun at themselves and the circus they're a part of. However, today the Valentino designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli had a good laugh when they sent Ben Stiller as the noted "really, really, really good-looking person" Derek Zoolander and Owen Wilson as his modeling foil Hansel (no last name needed, obviously) down the runway. According to the New York Times critic Vanessa Friedman, the duo are in Rome filming the sequel to Zoolander and used the Valentino catwalk see more
