WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

James in the Hood

As much as I adore New York City I welcome the opportunity for a quick getaway – An invitation to spend the weekend at a friend’s Cape Cod beach retreat provided the perfect escape.


We had a glorious time soaking up the sun, kayaking (I created quite a scandal kayaking in my white Dior speedo and over-sized Gucci aviator sunglasses) – We ate at local seaside restaurants and enjoyed fabulous “fruits de mer.” – The vibe in Cape Cod is super casual, no need to wear a jacket to dinner here, a jacket would have actually felt a bit out of place. Nonetheless, I still felt the need to come up with looks that were chic yet appropriately casual for the setting. I’ve been admiring several of Michael Bastian’s pieces for summer and this very light weight cotton seersucker hoodie in ‘Nantucket” red and white stripes added that little extra spark and attitude to a rather simple outfit, paired with a G-Star buttoned undershirt and white skinny jeans by Diesel – I finished the look with Gucci sunglasses. I’m going barefoot, dreaming, and keeping nicely tanned : )

    firstly, Michael Bastian’s designs are brilliant. And secondly, you look totally brilliant in his clothing.
    and, I’m still waiting for the speedo picture . . . lol.

    You’re elegant under all circumstances even when kayaking! I won’t expand more about this outfit which is once again a real success!
