Frais Fit: Bike Lane only
With snow storms slowly turning into rain storms in the north, and rain storms turning into humid hell in the south, clothing choices are beginning to shift this time of year.
Layering, in my opinion is the best way to paint yourself with details. You can really accent colors, textures and more by doing so.
But is it really worth wearing your favorite cardigan, dress shirt and tie combination in them midst of a heat wave. I think not! Especially in Miami.
This Frais Fit goes head to head with mother nature, and allows the person to breath, in the breeze with the trees in times of high degrees, wearing a Frais tee.
Growing up I always wondered why people were so concerned with fashion. I was never given the best clothing. Mainly because my mothers priority for myself and my siblings was food in our mouths, and a good education.
I associated the fashion industry with pretentious elitists, that made their mirrors a best friend. Probably because their real friends couldn’t keep up with the demand of ego boosting they needed.
I didn’t see the Art in Fashion. After watching overzealous shows on TV with women in large feather hats, and ridiculous outfits in leopard print, I thought it was a contest to see who can make a skinny white girl look the most atrocious.
Fashion in my middle class neighborhood, was no different. Guys would wear tall white tee shirts and expensive sneakers, and be crowned top of the food chain. Women would wear colorful hair attachments, and Gold chains with their names on it, and be the queens of hive.
The fashion world, always seemed like this exclusive lifestyle that i couldnt be apart of.
Then I put on my first fitted dress shirt.
Something happened to me. I realized the clothes don’t make the man it is the man that makes the clothes. The garments have to work for you. Just because everyone is wearing it doesn’t mean it isn’t special. You can create and customize, your clothing based of how you feel!
This overwhelming feeling has truly made me appreciate people that do spend that extra time in the mirror. Why not feel confident about how you express yourself on the outside. Especially in a day and age where people don’t take time to know the inside, why not give them a glimpse of who you are on the outside!
Frais Fits: Le garçon du Collège
Sleep, A social life, and Good grades. The typical college student can only pick two.
Because of this tenacious schedule, dressing well can easily fall in to the back burner, contaminating the students style drive. This usually causes them to be engulfed into a deadly vortex of wearing sweat pants every day.
This fit expresses the resistance of that trap. It also leaves people wondering how you managed to ace the midterm, when you were at both parties the night before.
I guess they’ll have to lose sleep trying to figure it out.
This weekend, Feb 11th in Miami’s well known “Art Walk” Frais Culture will be holding a meet and greet event. Were going to be showing off the spring collection of shirts, in an art instalation that will give you a definate feel of the Frais.
I’ll be there snapping photos of the most Frais Folks!

The Frais (Fray) Look!
Frais is French for Fresh, Crisp, and any other sylable that expresses that feeling of quenching a thirst, or stepping out of a shower.
Aside from selling our couture in our shop, I’ll be updating you all with Inspiration from around the web, events in the city, and most importanly our brand.
Keep an eye out for our Frais Fits, which are collages of inspirational details centered around our attire, because we all know there are moments where the staring at the mirror can make us late to that party.
Feel free to re-blog, and follow us on Facebook, and twitter for updates!
Stay tuned, stay stylish and most of all stay Frais!!
