As we approach January, deep in the 2010 Winter season, I've noticed more details on cardigans and coats that hint to a nautical style more so than this season's military style. I'm also beginning to believe this may be a clue to what the next fall season may bring.The Company of We 'Moses Toggle Peacoat' has the same classic tailored cut of a peacoat with sharp lapels, but its organic cotton rope detail and the natural horn toggle enclosure cause me to envision this peacoat on the backs of sailors and classic fishermen. The thick cotton rope and the toggles add a detail that allow for the Moses coat to easily stand out among the double breasted button downs.

I believe that a home truly reflects someones character, values, hobbies, and interests and Pharrell's apartment does this magnificently. Lofted above Miami's aqua shoreline, the apartment has the open and natural light quality of a studio. The high ceilings and range of views are what seem to give the apartment a special quality. This quality accompanies his extensive collection of artwork very well. Although he seems to have a deep interest in the work of KAWS and the Family Guy TV show, Pharrell's collection includes collaborations of his own, and the artwork of several other renoun artists from around the world. I only wish there were more pictures to reveal more of his private lair.
