Side by side, Marc Jacobs Spring 2011 collection is similar to his Fall 2009 collection. The colors that he uses for both are highly saturated to an extent that it can be overwhelming to the eyes. While for Fall 2009 his palette of colors consisted shades of black, purple, and blue, his 2011 Spring line is reminiscent of a mixture of fall foliage and blossoming spring flowers. Speaking of flowers, they tend to appear in almost every piece as some sort of ornament.

I’ve been on  hiatus ever since school has started back up, but I’ve still been keeping my eye on what’s been going on in New York’s Fashion Week. Out of all the shows that I watched, I was initially most impressed by the work of Yigal Azrouel’s.  I enjoyed the overall production of the models’ appearance. The neon orange eye makeup with the pulled back slick hair gave an alien-like appearance to the models. With the addition of the simplistic nude colored pieces, the line looked like it could have been taken out of a Star Wars movie.

Nike. Adidas. Converse. For the past decades sneakers have been a staple in American fashion as much as white t-shirts and blue jeans. Just like apple pie, everyone in America had a pair and wore them with pride. The past couple of years have seen an influx of sneakers hitting our closets; partly because of the retro 80’s comeback and partly because the design aspect of creating “high fashion” sneakers have exploded. Although, sneakers will not be leaving the American mindset anytime soon there is a new revolution appearing in the way of dress shoes.

The word “dress shoe” brings to mind boring church services or never ending weddings, but this post is focusing on brogues and wingtips. Brogues are low heeled, leather bound shoes that originate from Ireland. They are often viewed as the country man’s shoes and are less formal than their counterpart: the oxford. Nonetheless compared to sneakers, they are screaming high-class. The colors are often limited to all black, a light chestnut color, and an almost chocolate brown. The name wingtips come from the “W” design that appears on the tip of some brogues.

Everything about We Are Handsome’s Spring+Summer 2011 collection screams first class summer. The colors chosen for the bathing suits have a muted neon tinged, but are not overly saturated to make your eyes bleed.  The video is set to a remix of The Black Kids “I”m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You”. My favorite look comes from the laid back model with the LAX airport sunset scene. Everything about this collection is absolutely brilliant.

We’ve entered a world where accessories are key to creating originality in terms of style. Unfortunately for guys, we only have 3 accessories that are seen as acceptable and even with these three, we are not allowed to go over the top with them. What are these three you ask? Watches. Necklaces. Rings. What makes it irritating is that these “accessories” have alternative uses than just being stylish.

With watches it is seen as more of a tool than an accessory. Watches are meant to tell time, even though we have thousands of technological innovations that do the same thing. Rings mostly symbolize things, whether it’s our class ring or wedding ring. It’s only necklaces that can be seen as a true accessory.

Once again guys are out of luck.

Then entered the brooch.
