Cosmic Forces

Reminiscent of the glimmering lights of the stars and bright vibrant hues of the nebula, the trends of shimmer and silver this season have run rampant among street style. It’s the ultimat “seen or don’t be seen at all” look for the fall/winter.

Pretty in Pink - Going 80's for Fall 2017

I wanted to drop a little nugget of style inspiration for you all. This time, I wanted to take a page out of the retro playbook for this very vibrant look for fall. As we've all seen in the runways, and majorly for Gucci SS18, theres been a surge of period pieces- from broad shoulders, to track suits, and more.

BANG BANG

BANG BANG

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...

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....

A Look into the Liberation of one of Italy's Most Iconic Fashion Houses

After a departure from the modern silhouettes, sharp lines and European jet-setter styling that have been their trademarks for years, Gucci went in a new direction with Creative Director Alessandro Michele, who took over in 2015. Gucci's latest offering can be considered the first that Michele has built from the ground up...
