As the summer sets into the bright and bustling NYC, I've been inspired to explore the city by Michele's eccentric and vibrant concept of travel. You see, you don't necessarily have to hop on a plane or boat, your environment can simply change with your imagination be it a book, a simple change to an environment, or in our case, articles of clothing.
Sightseeing the City with Copenax
I'm a big eyewear guy and always have a pair with me on the go. But when it comes on choosing the right pair, it may seem like a daunting task. One may be too over the top, or too basic. So what's my trick? I like choosing something in between for those moments when a look just needs that extra touch. I've recently discovered a Korean eyewear brand Copenax with it's modern yet classic inspired frames.
Top Picks for Accessories
So you’ve seen me peacockin’ these sunnies lately and they are by far phenomenal to wear. The Gucci Hollywood Forever collection is an impeccable trove of eyewear pieces designed and inspired by old Hollywood glam and Alessandro’s inspiration from costume design. In particular, the oversized frames in pink are my personal favorite as its a bold statement for the face. Embellished with hand applied crystals and a pink acetate frame, the glasses are a great addition to anyone’s wardrobe.

Oh My Gucci! He's done it again. An exclusive look into the Gucci FW17 Collection
Cast into Alessandro Michele's world of mystery, nature, and fantasy, the Gucci FW17 collection takes us deeper into the realm of avant garde fashion than Gucci has ever gone before. The collection, which debuted on February 22 in Milan, was unveiled in Gucci's first ever show combining men's and women's looks...
Shot in the picturesque town of Freeport, TX, directors Nina Hawkins and Alan Ballesteros, along with photographer Caroline Fontenot collaborated with Hues of Man to create a stylized retelling of the story of the most notorious criminal duo in American history. “Bang Bang” re-imagines the story of Texas’s very own Bonnie and Clyde, a couple who went on an infamous spree of murders, robberies, and heists in the 1930s. Bang Bang reunites Hues of Man and Josh Robertson, as well as the models from the Revival of Gucci project. New York City fashion influencer and consultant Alyson Cafiero stars in the central role as the enigmatic Bonnie, and Hues of Man stars as her partner in crime. Pieces are from the Gucci FW16, Cruise 17, and Gucci Ghost Collections.
The Trouble Gang
The Trouble Gang, played by Josh Robertson, Joey Garcia, Erik Tjon, and Tucker May, rule the town dressed in Gucci’s and Trevor “Trouble” Andrew’s Gucci Ghost collaboration. The collection is a wild amalgamation of street and high fashion, bringing graffiti art influences to the Gucci brand. The men were styled to convey a rough, urban confidence.

It’s all Gucci to Me
As I sifted through my personal clothing rack of Gucci clothing, I wondered, “How far can I really take this stylistically?” The Italian powerhouse has been making waves in the fashion industry with its reinventing approach towards fashion, and especially with the menswear line where genderless apparel is welcome...
About A Man: RoiWilly
I first started HuesOfMan based on the idea of highlighting diversity in our world through fashion. Whether it be people, style, patterns, or colors- I always sought to include these themes through the blog. Now I'm taking it a step further by highlighting one of the few people I look to daily for fashion inspiration. Who is it? It's @RoiWilly. I discovered him on Instagram (through our love of Gucci hehe) and felt connected to his diverse sense of style and his interpretation of menswear. Read more about Will below!
Fashion Returns to Houston with a Bang!
It's been awhile since Houston has had a full blown fashion week. With the absence of Fashion Houston and only little pop-up events here and there, the city seemed to be warding off any attraction on capitalizing on the art and fashion industry. That all ended this past week when Matt and Kara Swinney of Fashion X launched the first ever FashionX Houston...
The Rise of Texas Couture
When you first think of Texas, a few words come to mind: horses, cowboys, oil, Beyoncé...? But when it comes to fashion, it's a missed topic that few pay attention to in the Lone Star State. However, that has not been the case lately with the efforts to Matt Swinney and his team at Fashion X....
A Glimpse Inside the Gucci x Gucci Ghost Launch at NYFW in NYC
Normally, you have to be a fashion journalist, a celebrity, or a major client to get into these types of events. However, someone at Gucci showed my blog and Instagram to Gucci's North American corporate headquarters, and they wanted to show their appreciation for my work and my loyalty to the brand. Along with the invitation, I was notified that I'd be getting the VIP treatment, with Gucci generously paying all travel and lodging expenses. I was also told I would get to meet Trevor "Trouble" Andrew, the brain behind Gucci Ghost, one of the hottest fashion collaborations of the year....
