Here’s a brief introduction to the designer:

“Alexandra Reboul began her education in fashion as a young girl immersed in a Franco-American lifestyle. Dividing her time between New York City and France, she observed the careful balance of femininity and sensibility in the way women dressed. Her education continued at prestigious design institutes such as FIT, RISD, Parsons Paris and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. Alexandra went on to work with such masters as Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg. She learned that with great attention to fit and style, the right dress could make a woman feel beautiful, feminine and powerful. Alexandra Reboul launched her namesake collection in 2015. Much like her own experience with fashion, the collections of Alexandra Reboul seek to be highly collaborative – drawing inspiration from a unique featured artist each season.”

Her ready-to-wear collections “offer an unprecedented collaboration of fashion and art – drawing inspiration and direction from a unique featured artist each season. Exclusively designed prints and palettes add modern distinction to timeless silhouettes. The look is fresh, creative and inherently feminine.” Her 2016 collection conjures up a vision of wearable art. All of her pieces are made in New York City from textiles sourced in France and Italy.

‘Tis the Season for Weddings: What you need to know to look your best

weddingsThe summertime doesn’t just welcome warm climate, beautiful scenery and relaxing times. It also welcomes the start of wedding season. Summer weddings are gorgeous and heart warming. Unfortunately, your heart isn’t the only thing getting warm. Summer weddings are notoriously hot and can make any guest uncomfortable, especially the men. Men have always been expected to wear penguin suits on formal occasions such as, weddings. However, at Joseph Wendt Custom Clothiers, we have the right tips for every man as they suit up for a lively night of celebrating.

Here are some of the tips and guidelines to follow when attending a summer wedding. Keep in mind though, this isn’t your day so don’t be to over the top to where you over throw the bride and groom. Be comfortable and stylish with your outfit and enjoy it!

THE SUIT 

The suit is the most important part of any mans ensemble. Nowadays, men aren’t expected to wear heavy, black tuxedos to any wedding. Our most important rule is to have fun with what you’re wearing. Wear a khaki suit or patterned jacket. As long, as the dress shirt matches and your confidence shows in what you’re wearing, GO FOR IT. Look for a slim, nice fitting suit or jacket when browsing for outfits. With the warm temperatures, stick to linens or cottons to avoid the embarrassing sweat marks at the reception.

THE TIE 

This is usually the detail of the outfit that men get most creative with. We agree that getting creative with a tie can brighten up any old suit. It also lets others see what your personality is really like if you get quirky with these details. Always go for a windsor knot, whether you do a half or full windsor depends on your head size. If you have a bigger head, go for a full windsor, and if you have a smaller head go for a half windsor.

THE SHOES 

Get a white buck skin shoe. TheY go with everything and they add a point of interest to any look. They may get dirty depending on if its an outdoor occasion or not but you will look better with it anyway.

THE DRESS SHIRT 

Its the summertime so that means you should go for more relaxed colors, like a light pink or lavender. Depending on how crazy you are planning on going with the suit jacket and tie maybe go for a light gray. Either way, a nice light lavender or pink can add a pop of color to any outfit, especially if you’re not planning on going over the top.

A Note from Joey: Fashion Show Success

JoeyThis past Saturday June 21st was Naples’ inaugural Father & Daughter Fashion Show at the Waldorf Astoria in Naples. 20 dads, dressed in Joseph Wendt Custom Clothier, walked down the runway with their daughters, dressed in clothing from Little Luxe.

The event included a full brunch, a silent auction, children’s activities, and of course the fabulous fashionable dads and daughters. I absolutely loved the opportunity to walk down the runway with my little girl Gianna. It was a great day with lots of laughs and smiles. Not only was it an enjoyable afternoon spent with family and friends, it was all for a good cause. All proceeds from the event went towards the Children’s Museum of Naples, helping kids learn, and play at the museum in future years.

It was an absolute pleasure to be a major sponsor and participant in this inaugural event. It is my opinion that this event will be one of the biggest events of the season in Naples in years to come. I’m honored to be a part of the first one and look forward to it growing down the road.

It’s a great event and I hope people in the community are going to take note of this. The Children’s Museum is also an incredible organization to support. All the sponsors and  Naples Performing Arts Center did a fantastic job of setting up such a wonderful, extended fathers day present for all the dad and daughter duos participating! I can’t wait until next year!
