He was schooled in the early depths of the culture

Paul Gaultier

There were too many collections to keep track. And though I loved them all, I had to narrow it down to the ones that stood out to me. And even if they didn there was something strong in their message. Blue this year is royal; soothing, much like the exquisite beaches in Aruba. Donatella Versace did a beautiful rendition of blue in swathed sweaters and fine tailored suits, while Dries Van Noten, though not a standout in the collections, did a beautiful number on those double 1:1 replica handbags breasted wool blend coats. But Acne was, by far, the best collection in this department. Jonny Johansson, creative director behind the brand, complemented the hue with the minimalism trend giving it a very contemporary appeal.

Paul Smith menswear Fall/Winter 2011 2012

Alright, this is not particularly a new trend. But, cheap louis vuitton bags from china uk it is one that designers want you to understand. Yohji Yamamoto did what appears to be an ode to the late Alexander McQueen, you know, the gorgeous art of the medieval era, Sir McQueen was cheap louis vuitton bags from china uk so good at but, in true Yamamoto fashion a bit of whimsical flair lightening things up. It is fashion at its peak, but still wearable for those into making statements through their clothes. I have said, for a long time, that I am in love with Riccardo Tisci. This has not changed, and neither has my love for his design hand at Givenchy. With its incorporation of pitbulls, Jesus and chains, this collection was very west coast, very and an interesting cross over into more accessible fashion. As for Jean , the man who gets his inspiration from the street, there was nothing new. But that okay, Mr. Gaultier played on his strengths: prints, sexuality and fantasy. But his way with prints, in this case, is indisputable.

Burberry Prorsum menswear Fall/Winter 2011 2012

The new trend: gray, hats, bags

The thing about this, is that there too many to just single out one. When I look at fake designer bags the hats especially in the Dior Homme collection it an easy ode to Indiana Jones. But, when I look at them, I think of the late, absolutely great Michael Jackson. He lives on through fashion. And the way the hats tilt (as seen in Lanvin), concealing the eyes just so, it is an obvious reference. As for gray, the colour representing sorrow, security and maturity, rather than dwell on replica louis vuitton bags the bad, let us think of it for its security. It dependability. And, better yet, as seen in Burberry Prorsum, its sleekness. feared by men across the globe at first, are now bigger than ever. To the point of commonality. But unlike the men in skirts trend last year, this one is nothing to be ashamed of. And as the trend develops, it learning to take on a masculinity of its own.

This fashion post is a bit more gritty than usual. But that because it reflective of the place I in with fashion. When I lived in London, UK, I was inspired by the street side of fashion. I wore brighter colours, statement tees and sneakers, and lots of gold chains. These days, I not really into the chains as before, but I still, like Jean dolabuy.su , take inspiration from the street. I haven had a chance to view any runway shows in a while, but I see if we in synch.

A few weeks ago I was store browsing for a winter jacket. I walked into one called Lavish Squalor a place I never bought from, but am keen on. To my delight, I came across a really beautiful and snug fitting winter jacket that was too good to be true. But I also came across an even more intriguing vision the Sales Associate, Omari. Well, more like, I zoomed in on this absolutely fabulous beaded necklace he was wearing and the non chalance Discount Replica Louis Vuitton Bags in how he wore it. A couple weeks later I saw him again, hoody, jacket, combat boots and that marvelous necklace. Then, I met with a friend of mine a guy, who also sported the chain with this reckless abandon. But his was embellished with a large cross. Thuggish, but oh so captivating! When I asked him about it, he simply said is the days of Tribe Called Quest. And it got me thinking.

I remember in the early 90s when hip hop was bright. Florescent Malcolm X attire, statement accessories, oversized clothing. Fashion in the urban world was coming out of the mess that was stonewash jeans, bad haircuts and jheri curls (well, Ice Cube carried that into the 90s). But we were finding ways to incorporate our roots into our sense of individuality. And that necklace, during the times of the 5% nation, nuwabians and Zulu Nation as it was called, was a very bold and opposing statement to that of the bling.

I have to have this necklace. By the looks Perfect Quality Louis Vuitton Replica of it, I can make it myself.

Another note to self: I think Kanye West is my dream man.

Believe me when I say this is just the beginning. Men fashion week is the most underrated, but shouldn go unnoticed because it is a designer inspiration for their women collections that follows suit.

Jean has been taking it to the streets since the start of his career. But you can see the aesthetic in all 59 looks of his spring/summer 2011 collection more than any other time. Here, he explosive with the graphic prints and Keffiyeh like scarves. And he taken his collection to the middle east with the Jodhpur pants and oversized pull over shirts.

At Louis Vuitton, Paul Helbers(the brand menswear designer) kept it clean. As per usual. it on a completely different route than Marc fake louis bag Jacob over the top womenswear, but Helbers use of neutral tones are worth noting. The one miss was the translucent button ups, they were reminiscent of those cheesy, 90s club hoppers women so tried to avoid. replica louis vuitton handbags The overall wearing worker woman is the star for this season.

Jean overalls were wide legged,Parisianchic while Diesel version for it Black Goldcollection was lolita sexy. It a defiance from the trends orchestratinga glossy trend pages because you your own woman. As a form of the rebellion, the frustratedworkersof thedepression era, and the hip hop youthof the 90s wore overalls as a way to define themselves as working class. For the fashion girl, it seeking an alternative to skin tightclothing she been embracing for seasons. This time around, she theair honey dew sweetness,arms shielding face while soaking up the sun.

TYTE Single Pocket Overalls available at ShopstyleAlexander McQueen untimely death brought about two realities: he was the most passionate designer of the millenia, andthat he was possibly the last designerstanding after Karl, Jean Paul aaa replica designer handbags , and the equalling talented John carry a fashion empire on his back. Tears and billowing won do; all we have is memories. And even if his house is proceeded by someone new, McQueen hands, those eyes, that brain is irreplaceable.

McQueen saw fashion through a world all his own; that whatmakes hiscollections so special. Many thought he was crazy of course he was, how could a geniusbe normal? How could someone create a dress out of tulle and golden feathers with tiny gold embellishments at the hemlinesand be average? How could someone juxtapose digital print images ofArchangels and demons thigh high leather boots? To be sane is but an insult, for, true talent and originality can only be found in the midst of madness.

McQueen was aBritish national abadge he clutched to the very end and that has everything to do with it. He was schooled in the early depths of the culture from its medievalhistory to its current punk tradition. And it all jumbled into a continuous theme just so. And the world gravitated to him because of his unyielding sense of identity.
