In a convergence of favorites, one of our favorite style writers, Jian De Leon, wrote about one of our favorite trends, the rise of fashion sneakers, for one of our favorite publications, Business of Fashion. We suggest you read the piece.
In it, De Leon asserts that the Platonic ideal of the fashion sneaker is Common Projects (which we sell in-store only) and goes into detail about Amsterdam-based brand Filling Pieces.
More broadly, De Leon makes the case (correctly and astutely, we think) that fashion sneaker customers are not necessarily status seekers, but intelligent people who care about quality and design.

This just in: Menswear journalist and commentator extraordinaire Tim Blanks has found a new writing home, leaving Style.com and joining Business of Fashion.
We read everything Blanks writes and also heartily recommend following him on Instagram, where his bio still says he works at Style.com–and where his 15-second reviews of Fashion Week runway shows are crucial.
