Met Ball 2017: Rei Kawakubo Comme des Garçons

The 2016 Met Gala’s theme is Manus x Machina, and appropriately, Marchesa tweeted out a collaboration with IBM- and their “Cognitive Dress” in the early morning hours. We’ve seen many memorable looks from past Met Ball themes of Punk and China through the Looking Glass.  I just have Linda Fargo and Sarah Jessica Parker, as […]

Ann Demeulemeester Fall/Winter 2016 Men’s Paris Fashion Week PFW FW16

Ann Demeulemeester’s Fall/Winter 2016 Men’s Paris Fashion Week collection confirms, the designer has died and all remnants of her style are long gone.  Oh, won’t you please not be my neighbor?  The dark androgynous style I’ve been complaining has been waning has entirely dissipated- the acquisition has drained all creativity, edginess, style and design from the…

Agi & Sam London Fashion Week Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 FW16 LFW

Athletic inspired, color blocking, long sleeves, and unique details characterized the Agi & Sam London Fashion Week Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection. It was a modern collection, and while I love the layering of some of the looks, there is a bulkiness to the silhouette of the oversized garments, which is intentional but not a good look….

Astrid Andersen London Fashion Week Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 FW16 LFW

Astrid Andersen London Fashion Week Men’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection featured athletic references such as the basketball short inspired pants, and a color palette of black, gray wool, gold and black print, mint green, and red.  I love a graphic print shirt, and the embroidered quilted graphic pullover hoody, which is cool but a bit bulky….

Hardy Aimes Fall/Winter 2016 Men’s London Fashion Week collection features classic looks, impeccable tailoring, coats in camel, brown, black; jackets in 50 shades of gray…and gingham,  and a burnt orange with contrast notched lapel. It’s more classic and basic than what we’re seeing from other designers for FW16 LFW…safe. It’s 

Nordstrom Haul: MAC Enchanted Eve, TopMan, Clinique…

My Nordstrom Haul: I bought a Top Man Hooded Knit Cape and Wide Brim Hat- getting ready for the Spring/Summer 2016 Boho Chic 70’s Trend; a Mac Enchanted Eve Mineralize Brush Set; Sole Society Fold-Over Tote Bag; and Clinique All About Eyes Concealer, which  I bought to deal with puffiness as it works for both puffiness and…

A Platform for Platforms

Platforms have long been worn by those in alternative style categories, from Goth to Pastel Goth and even Kerli’s Klick- who go by the fan-nickname MoonChild.   Japan apparently, as the video cites, has had them around for decades.  I’m sure you’re familiar with Y.R.U. if you live in the states: I love the Qozmo…

Out Outdoes Itself

 Dark, sleek, black leather clad with slicked back hair, this guy is a 21st century rock star.  Out Magazine’s story “Dark Days,” featured in the September issue, takes us on a sullen world tour of American, French, Italian, and English fashion.  John Varvatos and DSquared2’s leather pants…(no verb required). I see the nod to the…
