Vintage Video: Hedi Slimane for YSL 98/99

Duckie Brown was all about the lack of music with their recent Fall 2008 show, but Hedi Slimane’s 99 collection for YSL followed the no sound route way before.  In the vintage vid we get to meet the designer and his collection but the lack of music makes me feel disconnected to the collection and more aware of the snapping and coughs coming from the crowd. Fortunately there was no cellular chatter in this round of show.

Hedi being thrown out at the end. Priceless

Gucci Fall 2008

Frida Giannini has won me over completely with her Fall 2008 Ready-To-Wear collection, I am in love with every single stitch, of every single piece. Her sexy, confident style manifested itself this time as a Russian, hippie, rock chick, but one who can afford to look that way luxuriously. Peasant blouses, straight leg hipsters, fringed riding boots, flirty dresses, vests, trench coats, and lots of fur were layered, embroidered, printed, studded and accessorized to the max with gold chains, heart necklaces and pirate-esque belts.

Eight, magnificent, floor trailing dresses were the last pieces to show, some draped goddess style, some with sashes, some printed with feather patterns. The details were pivotal to the collection as well, like the adorable gold and black clutches bearing the Gucci logo, and the studded strappy heels. It was nice to see some color and pattern from a fashion week that was one all black show after another. This collection will definitely make for amazing shopping with its broad range of separates, and unique pieces.

Versace Fashion Show in Milan

 Outerwear was a strong focus at Versace, and Donatella showed us everything from exaggerated versions of military coats, to sleek colored motorcycle jackets, great leathers and wool overcoats. The collection was inspired by the paintings of art deco artist Tamara de Lempicka– a fave or Madonna and Jack Nicholson– and the inspiration was reflected in a dark, brooding palette and oversized  proportions.       photos: men.style.com

Alexander McQueen shows in Milan

 Alexander McQueen is such a forward thinker that sometimes the viability of his collection is not immediately apparent. His stuff often seems a little too “out there” to be saleable or understandable to the average customer. McQueen recently went to India and was so inspired, he designed a whole collection around what he saw there. His fall/winter collection is all about prints from the sub continent- a clash of pattern and color. We’ve got some pics after the jump.We know the collection is a little bizarre, but you know in 5 years we will all be wearing some variation of this.     photos: men.style.comcredit: wearethemarket.com

Gucci in Milan

 I dont usually love Gucci but something about the fall /winter collection, presented today in Milan is really getting me going. The Russian Cossack/jetsetter boho rock n roller, Eugene Hutz-inspired collection is totally translatable to today’s skinny-jeans wearing hipster. A few ethnic accessories, a furry vest, velvet skinny jeans and you’re there. You can keep your 2 toned jazz wingtips or beat up jazz shoes, too. More pics after the jump.       photos: men.style.com                             credit: wearethemarket.com

Dsquared Fall 2008

At yesterday’s DSquared show, ski met ska as the Caten twins sent looks down the runway that merged a London street style sensibility with the warm, active looks of a ski bum. The boys created an elaborate backdrop to set the mood: a wintry Boystown with fire escapes, a tavern, and a blistering snowstorm, as reported in men.style.com.Bleached denim, leather MC jackets, skinny braces and tiny white button front shirts set the London mood while luxurious parkas and chubbies, ski pants and chunky sweaters were all about the slopes. The result was less camp and more saleable than past collections, for sure. We’ve got pics after the jump! photos: men.style.com credit: wearethemarket.com
