Obsessed With Tretorn

When I was in New York back in August, my friend Shawn recommended that I stop by the new Tretorn store on Spring street in SoHo. Since all the spring styles were on sale at the time, I ended up leaving with not just one, but three pairs of sneakers (there is no way you can get a pair of great sneakers in Brazil for $45, so it is a good idea to stock up sometimes). Their slip-on canvas sneakers with an elastic strap are the certainly coolest option for summer in Brazil.

I stopped by the store again this week, and there are now leather versions of the slip-on sneakers for fall, amazing hi-tops in leather and quilted nylon, and the most perfect rubber boots. If I weren't going back to Brazil in a week, I would have definitely picked up a pair.

The Coolest Gucci Sneakers

Call me crazy, but I am in love with the fringed patent leather hi-tops Frida Giannini showed at Gucci this week in Milan. I also really like the flamingo print totes.



In my humble opinion, this was one of the best (if not THE best) Gucci men's collections since Tom Ford left.

Obsessões: Lanvin, Flip, Time Capsule, And Raf Simons

In order make things more personal here, here is a list of things that I am digging at the moment (a.k.a. what I would like to spend my money in next week in New York).

Lanvin hi-tops: the spring sneakers in suede with copper toes manage to look even cooler than last fall's in satin. I just have to find a way to justify their price tag, or get some really cool Nikes instead, especially because I can never find cool sneakers in Brazil.

Time Capsule: I haven't upgraded to Leopard yet, but this is the perfect excuse to do it. Apple's newest gadget allows you to seamlessly back up 500GB (or even 1TB), and also acts as a wi-fi station.

Flip Video Ultra Series Camcorder (in orange): because I want to start featuring more video content here, and this is probably the easiest way to do it. It is cute, small, and can record up to 60 minutes of footage.

Raf Simons for Eastpack: because it actually makes me WANT to wear a backpack, and it is also probably the only thing by Simons which I can afford.

I also need to get a watch (one that will not be robbed easily in Brazil so that I don't have to fear for my life while wearing it). Any suggestions?
