Watches are definitely an important accessory apart from being a necessity, but when it comes to aesthetics, a statement timepiece can make or break your outfit. Click through for some of our favorite stand-out watches to up your arm party this fall.
Halloween might not be until next weekend, but everyone's getting in the spirit this weekend as well. From cocktails in the catacombs to the infamous Tompkins Square Park Halloween Dog Parade, it's time to get your costumes out! As always, you can find more events on our Calendar.
Alexis Zambrano is the Creative Director and one of two men behind the men's accessories brand, M. de Phocas, that just launched its latest women's collection this August on Moda Operandi. The line, which is full of playful accessories including gummy bear pins, floral charms, and plenty more to obsess over, caught the attention of top publications. Elle Decor also took a trip to Alexis' Manhattan apartment, which Alexis says is filled with nostalgic pieces. "The stories behind each and every object inside my home give shape to my overall design aesthetic," he says. We can't get enough of Alexis' eye for design on all fronts, and we're certain he's someone you should know. [You Should Know]
