Paris - Raf Simons makes serious shoulder and arm warmers

Raf Simons AW2009

Raf Simons AW2009

First came the suits (super tailored and of exceptional made in Italy quality - according to Cathy Horyn from NYT). Then perhaps Raf Simons thought that even super cut suits are too boring and hiding too much discreet sophistication even for the trained eyes, he sent out sth like above.

Cuting off parts of a suit jkt is nothing new but he gives them a new shape (but a new meaning? power dressing?:) Interesting. Make sure you take bigger taxi when you dress like that next winter:)

Paris - Louis Vuitton has balls

Louis Vuitton AW2009


Where did I see soccer ball the last time? In the stadium? No, at CdG SS2008 show (bellow). I am wondering if MJ saw the ball there too.

Paris - Comme des Garcons Homme plus, doubleness

2 in 1 - the suit jkts are "doubled", one "sits" on another. Perhaps it's about tailoring this time.

I want the hats:)

Paris - Rick Owens - pale face black dresses

Sometimes the clothes look like they were put flat on the model (above) perhaps the models are so thin, or too many layers, or both?

There are layers of black and you don't know if the clothes are for women or for men. But who cares:)

The boots are superb. And note the "new length" above yr knees for men.

Milan - recession rulez at Prada

Prada AW2009

Coats are super long and jkts are double breasted - that's the recession's dress code. I like the studded "total look" :) (bellow). If only the studs were made from white gold, hehe.

Milan - "big bottom" at Jil Sander

Jil Sander AW2009

Jil Sander never looks that "retro" (or "dated", you pick the word). "Does my ass look big?" won't be the question next winter? It seems that the masculine-feminine game in men fashion now is taking a focus on bottom, hmm.

The stuffed silhouette is not much far from his own collection, Raf Simons AW 2008 (bellow).

I don't remember where I saw this bag (I must have seen them somewhere) but it is kind of similar to Gareth Pugh SS09 (bellow) don't you think? :)
