Due to my lack of posting on a regular schedule i have fallen drastically behind in my menswear coverage of the runways shows. So fast in fact that menswear spring 2011 has already come and gone. To keep it current along with my fellow fashion bloggers ( we're a breed of our own), i have decided to start my reviews of the spring 2011 season, leaving what was unspoken of the fall 2010 season behind me. Look forward to my coverage of spring 2011; who knows, maybe you can even pull a similar ensemble together for this summer and be head of the crowd. Thank you for reading.
COMME DES GARCONS spring/summer 2011:
Rei Kawakubo spring 2011 for CDG created a lovely collection suited for the not-so-average business man. All black and white, Checkered and Skull prints, this collection of thin suits, romper-esque shorts, skirts (i'm dying), was a success for the Rei; however; the question is raised if the skull prints on nearly everything was in some way paying homage to the late McQueen, who iconic symbol was the skull. Either way Rei Kawakubo always impresses me the cuts and shapes she produces for both her men's and women's line. Job well done.
Strong, confident, and comfortable; ADAM'sfall 2010 collection is one that fits into all three categories. this cohesive line blended soft knits, sequins, shear fabric, and thick fabrics into a warm line for the contemporary women looking for something relaxed, yet chic.
"My woman is stronger this season," the young designer said backstage. "The collection is more sophisticated; the emphasis is on fashion this time." It's too soon to tell where this new maturity will lead, but kudos to him for pushing his own envelope.
You will never (want to) loose your keys again with this beautiful key chain byA-Z Collection. made with wire and adorned with a hand crafted wooden piece, this key key chain is must for those of us who like modern, minimalist design, with a warm, soft natured touch. The key chain comes in four different shapes to choose form. you can buy them at an Opening Ceremony boutique or online at:
Animal furs, prints, sequin, shear, fish tales, and asymmetrical garments were all found prowling down the catwalk at 3.1 Phillip Lim's fall/ winter show. There is something here for every woman searching for looks that are current and forward, yet subtle. I found Lim's collection soft and romantic, with an edge. The entire line was a success. From the leopard dyed rabbit furs, to the chunky tasseled and strapped platforms, i have a new found liking for the works of Phillip Lim.
