Plummy news for fans of Cole Haan’s LunarGrand line of comfortable but style-minded shoes. They’re going Kudu Suede as of Friday, May 10th. The Kudu Suede collection is made up of three silhouettes: the LunarGrand Chukka, Penny Tassel and Longwing. We’re loving how the LunarGrand Chukka ($328) in Camello suede gives off an earthy kind of luxury—the color is a bit more for Fall, but also would pair great with pops of bright red, yellow, blue and white. The LunarGrand Penny Tassel ($298) is elegant, yes, but built tough for days on the go. No socks required, pants rolled or better—shorts. The LunarGrand Long Wing ($298) rounds out the trio in Limestone suede and is the most versatile shoe in the bunch—pair with denim for sophisticated casual or try them with some chinos and a shirt for some sporty grace. The Cole Haan Kudu Suede collection will be available on Friday, May 10th at Cole Haan’s NYC SoHo, Rockefeller Center and Columbus Circle locations as well as Concepts in Boston.

Dressed in custom Richard Chai, Essential Homme cover man Darren Criss gives Gatsbian punk in a windowpane tux, inky black shirt and ever so bouffanted, silk, medium-width tie. Quite a far cry from last year’s textured charcoal tuxedo, Elvis pomp, you’ll note his hair stays shifted a beat on over to motown with the tight, slightly tapered curl. Check last year’s look and the original sketch from this year’s on the other side.
The first thing you’ll notice about the new scent from Odin, called 10 Roam, is that it’s complex. The first of the brand’s unisex fragrances to use incense, it starts off musky—think morning in the Brazilian Amazon, and then travels to the warm and sweet notes more appropriate for a night out in Rio. It’s not what you’d typically think of as a summer scent—no citrus, bergamot, lavendar here, but…does every warm weather scent need to give off the aroma of the Greek Isles as filtered through freshly laundered sheets? Of course not. Come warm weather, scents actually diffuse pretty quickly, so something a bit on the heavier side isn’t always a bad choice. Maybe not something you’ll be wearing to brunch, but certainly a good pick for those evenings that encompass some bayside drinking and outdoor dancing. And about the unisex part…it’s a softer musk, so she could possibly wear it, but likely no. Odin 10 Roam, $135/3.4 oz. is new this week at odinedt.com
Taking inspiration from the Burberry Spring 2011 season, Burberry has created a very limited edition capsule collection to celebrate this tonight’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Exhibition Punk: Chaos to Couture. The women seem to get a little more attention, thanks to a pair of spiked heels that the TSA will hate and two more studded leather leather jackets that harken to Rihanna’s more prickly days might, but the studded men’s leather jacket suits the occasion perfectly. Also, you’ll find a pair of skinny black denim and a classic white, short sleeved henley that, while not screaming punk, are absolute musts for the Burberry collector. The limited edition collection is now available and is exclusive to the Burberry Soho and East 57th Street stores in New York. You can head there to see their pretty cool window display, or peek the looks after the jump.
