Sweatpant Chic

By on Nov 11, 2014

I was at New York Fashion Week in September and saw Leandra Medine of Man Repeller at the Peter Som show. I quickly read her latest blog post that night and saw that she did a piece on the cultural shift of active wear turned all-the-time-wear. Brands from Thom Browne to Old Navy to Nike were all part of this movement, and suddenly what my sister and boyfriend had been trying to tell me over a year ago was sitting in front of my face – it is socially acceptable to wear sweatpants when going out. Let’s rewind. Last year my sister was visiting from New York and wearing sweatpants. At first I thought it was just her airplane outfit, but quickly found it was also what she was planning to wear to dinner. “I wear these all the time now, I got them at Free People,” she said. Seriously? I experienced a similar instance a couple months later when my boyfriend wanted to wear his sweatpants out....

By on Nov 9, 2014

Ahead of their official debuts during November’s LA Auto Show, BMW has unveiled the new 2016 BMW X5 M and X6 M. Both are entering their second generations and with that comes more aggressive design cues and increased power coming from the same 4.4L V8 M biturbo that was used the first time around. The new X5 M and X6 M dish out 567 horsepower and 553 lb/ft of torque as they catapult from 0 to 60 in 4.0 seconds with the help of the 8-speed steptronic automatic transmission. BMW’s also touting 20% better fuel consumption from the latest generations which is pretty impressive given the boost in performance. Both models are designed to perfection also. The standard BMW X5 and BMW X6 get upgraded to larger air intakes on the front while the side gills are fitted with a model badge and Air Breathers. Look for M four-tailpipe exhaust system on both while the BMW X6 M also gets a rear spoiler....
