Coachella Week :: In 5 days everyone’s favorite festival returns. Coachella is much more than a concert in the desert. It has become one of the most anticipated events of the year where Music, Fashion and Good Times are celebrated. RandomIsThePlan is dedicated to Coachella this week.
The wedding suit. A landmark moment in a man’s life must be accented by attire. Memories and snapshots are forever making it even more important that the groom be himself rather than a character. This is flawless personal wedding style.
Fashion often lives in the future. Thankfully, Michael Bastian’s Sunshine Days brings his Spring/Summer 2012 collection for Gant to the present. The colors, fabrics, smiles and energy in this blog provide a picture perfect postcard that will get us through colder and darker days.
This is Michael Bastian. We thought it might be fun and interesting to bring you a little more ‘behind the scenes’ this season (Spring/Summer ’12) by sharing this blog with you. In it, you’ll get to follow me thru the whole process of working on a season of my GANT by Michael Bastian line– from the photo shoot, to the preparations for New York Fashion week and our show on September 14th and beyond. And it’s not just me who’ll be contributing– you’ll hear from members of my team, the models and crew from the shoot and others involved in the season. Anything connected with summer should be easy and fun and casual, and that’s the spirit I hope this blog takes. So please enjoy it and feel free to jump in and join the conversation, ask questions, comment on what you see or just enjoy the pictures.
Kudos and congratulations to The TUMBLR 20. All stories leading up to, during and after New York’s Fall Fashion Week have been stellar. Please keep up the inspirational works as fashion lovers appreciate your points of view. RandomIsThePlan is a fan.
Oh, the memories! This is a quick (and beautifully edited) film of the Tumblr 20 at the Hudson Hotel throughout the duration of our 10-day stay. Catch a glimpse of the Style Closet sponsored by NMRKT, our private lounge, and the overall hotel’s awesomeness. Also, you can peep me in the video quite a few times (16 year old black kid with big hair)! A huge THANK YOU, once again, to Rich Tong, Morgan Hotels, Holly Stair, and the rest of the Tumblr 20 for making it the most amazing experience of my life. Forever grateful.

Yesterday, backstage at the Valentino show in Paris, Freja Beha Erichsen sported a t-shirt with the words ‘Starved for Attention’ written boldly across the front.
No, the statement was not a jab at the modeling industry but a part of Freja’s campaigning for Doctor’s Without Borders - A charity organisation that provides emergency response and relief to more than 80 countries worldwide. The Danish top model has been rallying together those in the fashion industry to help DWB - by donating a day’s salary, or as much as they can.
We’re trying to pull together a model effort for Doctor’s Without Borders so if anybody in the industry would love to support it’s October 4th. What we’re gonna do is take a day’s salary and donate that… I just really admire what they do as individuals and as an organisation… a lot of the money goes to help, actual help and not just administration. - Freja Beha Erichsen
Behind Erichsen are models Abbey Lee Kershaw, Arizona Muse, Sasha Pivovarova, and Kinga Rajzak - all pledged to donate their day’s salary from October 4th. For some that means what we suspect to be quite a large donation as both Valentino and Chanel showed their Spring 2012 collections yesterday.
In an often shallow and materialistic industry it’s inspiring to see those at the helm of it all giving back to those in need.

Games and watches, two of my most favorite things. Louis Vuitton is just so good. Extravagant, luxurious and, above all, stylish. Could you imagine the summertime soiree where all of this would be put to use?
