A Bernhard Willhelm rep has been contacting press with news that the designer has canceled his Paris Fashion Week show scheduled for October 1. Instead, the spring 2011 collection will be ready to view online October 4. Reasons for the cancellation are unclear at this time.
To be perfectly honest I’ve always been a fan of Willhelm. Full of vibrant colors, adventurous cuts, whimsically eclectic shows, (I may regret saying this later but) he’s basically the Lady Gaga of fashion.
In honor of Alice in Wonderland, Parisian department store Printemps asked Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Bernhard Willhelm, Haider Ackermann, Manish Arora, Ann Demeulemeester and Maison Martin Margiela to invent one-of-a-kind dresses for Alice.
Ten Men Magazine decided to get inside avant garde designer Bernhard Willhelm’s head for their 20th issue. Photographed by Christian Anwander and interviewed by Richard Gray, here’s 9 of the 10 wacky questions and answers, straight from the mind of madness…I hope you can read German!
This season, we’ve seen everything from the one legged pant look, courtesy of Bernhard Willhelm, to the multi layered look from Rodarte and tons of leather via Gareth Pugh and many more…what do you think we’ll see on the streets of NY?
Not too far back I treated myself to a pair of Bernhard Willhelm sneakers, but I think it might be time to pack those up to make room for these Diet Butcher Slim Skin high tops. I would even consider sleeping in these. Blackbird is one of the only places I know who has them, so get yours fast!

I just came across this hilarious Bernhard Willhelm orgy print dress on IS MENTAL, but part of me wonders if you could get arrested for public indecency if worn in public. Loving the creepy lurk. Oh, Bernhard, you never cease to amaze me.

**WARNING** If you have an intolerance for shallow observations or you recently modeled in Men’s Spring 2010 Fashion Week, don’t read this.
The end of June and beginning of July are of importance to me for one reason: men’s fashion week. Yeah,the tailored suits and spring apparel are nice, but what I really look forward to is the hours I spend cooing over drop dead gorgeous models. The chiseled jaw. The supple lips. The piercing eyes. I’m like a kid in a candy-store!
But these past two weeks have been less than enjoyable for my model addiction. Is it just me, or are designers and bookers seriously skimping on the man candy this season? What once was a Cole, Ash, Luke and Taylor dominated field is now pillaged with some of world’s less fortunate looking creatures. Is there some sort of repulsive man trend I’m missing the boat on here?
Proceed in clawing your eyes out.

V.ROM is a breathe of fresh air in this world of conservative recession fashions. The collection features some of the best styling I’ve seen in awhile too. Boasting a wide variety of colors and textures, the Fall 2009 collection appears to me as a mix between a Libertine and Bernhard Wilhelm. I love the looks!

These ‘Nils Sture’ hi tops from Bernhard Willhelm are an oki-ni.com UK exclusive and are super cool. They sort of resemble moccasins, but have awesome detailing around the sole.
Available in either black leather or off-white suede, these are available in strictly limited numbers. Read the rest…
You know for as crazy and rediculous as Bernhard Willhelm is, I am always 100% entertained by what he offers up year after year. This Fall’s collection is inspired by old school skiing. The collection has some crazy styling, but as a whole I think there are plenty of pieces in the collection that are pefectly wearable. I love the boots featured above (not the ski boots). The collection is everything we have come expect from Mr. Willhelm. Loves it!

Or should I say haute dog? However you say it, there really is a strange abundance of hotdog paraphernalia out there. Necklaces, shoes, bags, wallets, sunglasses, tees and pins are just some of accessories that sport the ballpark snack. If you ask me, a hotdog belongs in your stomach, not around your neck where the thousands of people who pass you on the street peg you as the nympho with a dangling phallic symbol.
