Sexy Back

Calvin Klein Jeans, bringing sexy back. Seriously.
Naughty boys tricking girls into fooling around while filming on VHS.

Sorry, Tsici

But didn't anyone tell Riccardo Tisci that pre-fall wasnt meant to be this fierce?
All absolutely wearable and amazing. Brb, pre-ordering entire collection.



"Reduce, Re-use, Recycle"
Possibly Martin Margiela's motto when creating his Artisanal collections?
Same silhouettes, remixed with different material and colours, but just as inspiring.

Gareth's Own

A collection of pieces straight out of Pugh's personal wardrobe.


Interesting to me that Balenciaga Resort, Pre-Fall and Homme are more like pret-a-porter and pret-a-porter is actually closer to Haute Couture.
So the question is: What really is Balenciaga Resort, Pre-Fall and Homme?

Golden Stag

Something that caught my eye at Rick Owens.

The two standout collections from Milan Menswear FW09 would have to be Burberry and Prada, respectively.

The trend? The Structural Coat, taking cue from FW08 Womenswear.

I'm Unsure

Hmm, I am unsure how i feel about the new SS09 Balenciaga campaign.
The casting is great, the clothes are fantastic... 
The photographer remains the same as previous seasons (David Sims) whose work for the label I have enjoyed up until recently with the FW08 campaign starring Charlotte Gainsbourg in a shadow ridden room. The poses though, have been consistent for a long time, think "android"  - which is synonymous with Ghesquiere's sci-fi approach to the house. But this season, I guess I don't like it because of the symbolic(?) green cube/ the green.
