Men Fall 2010 - Paris Fashion Week Highlights

I finally got a chance to review all of the collections from Paris Fashion Week and there are several collections that I absolutely love.
Dries Van Noten


AHHH!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! The over-sized knitwear pieces are amazing!

Kris Van Assche

Junya Watanabe

I am so inspired to create a shrunken blazer for myself. Loving the cropped pants also.


Effortless, understated, chic, oh so French.

Dior Homme

These jackets/coats drape so beautifully!

Ann Demeulemeester

Dark and mysterious.

I was really disappointed with the Rick Owens collection. I have always appreciated his avant garde aesthetic but I find that the new collection was just a bit too much for me. The proportions for most of the garments were visually unpleasant, and the models wearing the halter tops were awkward. Although the man's collection was a let down, I am still looking forward to the woman's collection.

Men Fall 2010- Milan Fashion Week Highlights

Men's Fall 2010 Milan Fashion Week kicked off two weeks ago and ended last week. I got really busy and wasn't able to post some of the highlights. Anyhow, below are some of the collections worth mentioning:
Burberry Prorsum

Christopher Bailey delivered another OUTSTANDING collection. I absolutely love the details, styling, and modernity to his collections. Not exactly a fan of the over-sized jackets (not included in the selection of pictures).

Pringle of Scotland

Pretty much this collection is orgasmic and I want every single piece. I love the colors, the proportion, and the details. They are wearable just like the Burberry collection. This century-old Scottish knitwear brand has some of the most incredible knitwear designs.

Neil Barrett

I tend to not like men in leather pants but these skinny leather pants from Neil Barrett are beyond sexy. He paired it up with a coat (as shown), and a blazer in the collection and both models just looked so sharp! The contrast geometric pieces are nice features- a great DIY project to update your classic blazers/ coats?

Costume National

I love how different fabrics have been incorporated into a garment for many pieces of this collection. I love gray and I adore the shades of grays from this collection. In addition, the fabrics and patterns are fantastic choices.

So far I have noticed a lot of grays, blacks, camel, bright colors, and crazy pAtTeRnS for Fall 2010. Other notable collections are Prada, Dolce and Gabbana (check out this collection!!!). I will be posting highlights from Paris Fashion Week soon so stay tuned!
