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.

The suits are coming! No, I’m not talking about Wall Street “Suits”; I’m talking about formal suits. To follow trends is to be a follower, but to see future trends is to be a trendsetter. It appears that all things are headed to men wearing full blown suits and the great thing is that it doesn’t require an invitation to a wedding. Tom Ford’s Fall+Winter collection shows that suits don’t have to have negative connotations of being snobby. They can be worn playfully with pieces of velvet thrown into the mix.

Fashion label, Nom de Guerre–translates to “war names”–, have taken their name seriously with their Fall and Winter collection. Their lookbook named “Countdown to Violence” has a deep militaristic theme, as well as a slight  “black power” undertone. The collection is filled with form fitting blazers and suits that seems to be paletted in all black.

It may be because of the hot and humid weather or a preppy undertone that is penetrating into street fashion, but more and more men are starting to roll up their sleeves and I’m not talking about their shirts. I started doing it early spring to give a dapper look to my everyday style. I took a pair of J. Crew’s broken in chinos and paired them with a brown leather belt and a white shirt and some dirty converses. Before I would walk out the door I would bend over and start cuffing each pant leg. At the time, it seemed like I was the only one doing and I definitely felt a little strange with my bare ankles visible for the world to see. You must understand that before then, I never wore shorts unless it was for a sport-like activity. I didn’t find the appealing in any way. It was the age of the “baggy” look and I had never been associated with that.

Ode to the Varsity Jacket:

I played soccer in high school. Never got a jacket. I played tennis in high school. Never got a jacket. I played chess in high school. I probably should have kept that a secret. Tell me why, every football player and basketball jock owned a varsity jacket and strutted around like they owned the school.  Regardless, I haven’t had a pleasant relationship with varsity jacket’s until today. Tim Hamilton’s take on the modern day jacket has a sort of futuristic tinge to it. Whether it is the patent pewter sleeves and collar or maybe the simplistic design of it all, one thing is for certain is that Tim Hamilton is a boss.

I thought it was Summer 2010. I guess I’m not living in FST (Fashion Standard Time). Obviously, this line was inspired by cycling, which is huge in Italy.
