In celebration of the Brioni S/S 14 Collection and Brioni’s new boutique at Bal Harbour Shops, DETAILS activated our philanthropic art initiative, The DETAILS Guild, to collaborate with local artist Alexander Mijareson a custom mural in the Wynwood Arts District of Miami. To toast the partnership and boutique opening, DETAILS and Mijares co-hosted a private cocktail party showcasing his artwork with a limited-edition run of prints that were sold to benefit local charity Overtown Youth Center.
To celebrate Salvatore Ferragamo’s FW 13 Collection and kick off the season of giving, DETAILS’ Fashion Director Matthew Marden and Style Director Eugene Tong hand-selected items for the DETAILS Holiday Gift Guide, revealed during a debonair cocktail party at the Ferragamo Fifth Avenue Flagship, hosted by Marc Kushner, CEO of Architizer, and designer Antony Todd. DJ Brendan Fallis kept the energy high while our dapper guests enjoyed seasonal cocktails from Basil Hayden’s, customized sketches by blind contour artist Ian Sklarsky, and shopped to benefit goods for good.

We teamed up with AG to showcase Nashville-based rock band MONA in support of the brand’s ongoing live music series, #AGlive. The exclusive party was held at The Sayers Club in L.A., where local tastemakers danced to the beats of DJ Myles Hendrik and sipped on custom cocktails by Ciroc before enjoying an energized, 60-minute set by MONA. The evening drew a crowd of Hollywood insiders including the likes of Emile Hirsch, Andrew Rannells, Rex Lee, and Geoff Stultz, among others.

Details is gearing up for the second iteration of The DETAILS Collections – a menswear hub at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. The slate of deisgners includes 2013 Ecco Domani winner Ian Velardi, Raif Adelberg, and SECOND/LAYER, a new Los Angeles-based brand. The program will also include a first ever, deciated men’s accessories show, which will highlight established and emerging designers in the men’s accessories category.
Every season we try to catch the trend and express our vision of what would be the coolest men’s wardrobe. Inspiration comes naturally when you do not look for it. Regarding the SS13 collection, we used some strong American symbols such as baseballs and skateboards.
When we launched SANDRO menswear there was almost nobody in the men’s middle high range market. Today a lot of men’s brands have found a way to express their idea of a men’s wardrobe. I do think that this competition helps all of us of becoming sharper, educating the consumers and at the same time being aware of what he wants.
What is your favorite piece from the current collection?
It’s funny … Actually this is not a garment but I am very proud of the skateboard we designed. It reminds me of a spaceship in a 70’s playground in LA!
What male celebrity would you say is the style icon of our time?
It’s very hard to answer that question since the new icon is the unknown person that simply walks in the street with his personal style. The kind of person you can see on street styles blogs.
