Style Edit ~ The Gagliardi Gentleman

We recently had the pleasure of collaborating with two great American brands in General Motors (GM) and Cadillac.  Thanks to our partners at MSL Group we were able to test drive the 2014 Cadillac CTS Sedan and put it to the test around DC.  We thought this would be a great opportunity to get creative in a photo shoot featuring several our friends and sponsors including Gagliardi and other specialty brands we’ve come to know and appreciate over the years.   Today, we present our visual project, “The Gagliardi Gentleman”.  Stay tuned for another #GrantedGateway production short film of the CTS in action.  In the meantime enjoy the show.

Video | Baume & Mercier ~ “Celebrate Giving”

Luxury Swiss watchmaker Baume & Mercier recently released a 2013 Christmas and holiday marketing video entitled “Celebrate Giving”.   We are fans of Baume & Mercier and their level of sophistication, and craftsmanship and hospitality.  The video, the first of its kind for the brand, displays the story of family and children coming together for the holidays, sharing old memories and creating new ones.  the gift giving culminates in the sharing of a his and her Baume & Mercier watches given from parent to child.  We must admit, this type of holiday may be a bit too unfamiliar for some to grasp, while others may recognize this as a comforting scene.

Sensational Shopping Guide | Husbands, Paris

This week our Sensational Shopping Guide continues with a trip to Husbands (yes in Paris).   Founded by Mr. Nicolas Gabard in 2011, Husbands offers traditional English tailored clothing in British cloth to the Parisian gentleman.   This may seem somewhat of a juxtaposition and a discourse between the distinctive taste for flair of many Parisian tailors and the structured and staid suits of the British, but offered in the artistic manner it is, it seems to work quite well. Unfortunately, Mr. Gabard was unavailable for a detailed interview as we caught him on his way to Premiere Vision, the largest textile and fabric tradeshow on the market, which is always a busy time for any tailored garment retailer.
