#WanderSetting NYC : The Current Big Apple Look Book

As the fashion world looks to Paris in the upcoming week, we at Wanderset look to a metro that is equally as famous, but quite opposite just the same. If Paris is polish and panache, Manhattan is grit and grind. Don’t get me wrong, there is an overabundance of tres Michelin star white table cloth dining, skyscrapers that would make the Tower Of Babel feel like a cuck, and luxe fashion worn while being chauffeured in luxe cars. Maybe we’re just more brash about it here. As a product of the north east metro area, I  wouldn’t have it any other way. After all, The City is the gateway to The New World. And we all know it. It’s not that either Paris or NYC are right or wrong, in a cultural sense, it’s that NYC is just younger. It’s energy is different. There’s more pulsing and pushing, and like any little…

5 Men’s Bags to Add to Your Fall Fashion Collection

A lot of men use a standard backpack as their go to man bag, but some of us want something more exciting – something with a little more edge and eye catching qualities.

The Future Of Commerce Is Narrative : Welcome To Wanderset

Since the beginning of time, humanity has progressed on the back of storytelling. Although craft and culture have morphed as humanity has, storytelling, as a concept, has not – we just find new ways to tell the story. We have lately been telling stories through technology – social platforms, content sites and now through e-commerce. Whether or not you happen to be in the digital or fashion space professionally, we are all at least peripherally aware that the traditional brick and mortar marketplace is in decline, while e-commerce continues to grow at an extravagant clip. “Despite the over $1 trillion in apparel sales transacted annually online and through mobile. Apparel e-commerce is still projected to grow globally by 40% over the next 3 years.” Fashion Industry Statistics, www.fashionunited.com, accessed on 11/13/16. What sort of new e-commerce sites will emerge to fill this space, to provide consumers with more than just…

September #Setlist : The New Ivy League Look # 2 : Harvard

Steeped in history, mystery, and, well, of course, ivy, these universities have given us not only the greatest minds from the most powerful families, but arguably the coolest fashion, in Americana.

Get your Crimson Ivy League on now. 5. COMME des GARCONS PLAY “POLKA…

5 Times Gucci Ghost Influenced HipHop Culture.

Gucci Ghost’s real name is Trevor Andrew , but lately crowds of people have been screaming “Gucci!!” at him in New York where ever he goes. The hype is around him is similar, and very reminiscent of the Warhol heyday on the same streets of the same city. Gucci Ghost has been the toast of both the fashion and art world this year. His work is everywhere, his signature cartoon-meets-urban style now being copied by many. Ironically he is in neither traditional fashion, nor art. He is a part of the new breed of “pop culture artists”, who mix a healthy dose of troll based satire, DIY rebellion and creative wit across mixed mediums and blend culture by not playing an instrument, but by playing the whole orchestra. The renegade visualist has had a break thru year.  He has been the darling of the moment in both hiphop and high…
