"Menswear Spring 2011 Post #5"

  • Yves Saint Laurent: "Stefano Pilati went back to North Africa for his lastest menswear collection..." -Tim Blanks. Saying that, from my point of view i saw an air of indiscreet inspiration of Brad Pitt's character on Inglorious Basterds, well, in certain pieces as the little hats the models wore, the printed sobber suits, many other suits and also from the way the models wore belts. Inspiration flowed also from the american writter, Parker Bowles. (Favorite looks below).

  • Kenzo: "A french artist traveling to Tokio for the first time..." - Tim Blanks. The collection itself was very parisian, hightlightening the famous berets in some looks and the stripped pattern, either vertical or horizontal. Also the watercolor splashes prints on the suits wich looked like smoke was my favorite part from the collection as they looked like a THAT french artist was in the immigration area of Tokio's airport (simple, the transition from France to Tokio). (Favorite looks below).

  • Junya Watanabe: "They're clothes i want to wear next summer" - said the designer. The collection was obviously nautical themmed. From the colors-to the patterns-to the stripes, everythind screamed and shoutted "summer breeze, sea, fun". My favorite look has to be the stripped blazer with the crisp baggy-roulled up blue-yish pants. (Other favorite looks below).

  • John Galliano: "... A tip to Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat to his silent masterpiece, Modern Times..." - Tim Blanks. Another AMAZING and DRAMATIC inspiration here, as soon as the first model walked down the catwalk you were immerse into the Chaplin lifestyle. The collection was a complete show, it gives us a hint of a past but not forgotten era. Were presented traditional pieces in enexpected fabrics, such as the trench coat in silvery-bronced-golden-ish lurex, dropped crotch pants were everywhere, then the collection moved into a very sharp, taillored and refined modern zombies wearing deliciously shapped white suits with small black ribbons and straw hats. And what can we say of such a genius that is John Galliano, he is a real-life walking history book. *ovation*. (Favorite looks below).

  • Givenchy: "... But Tisci's wild card is a juicy stew of raging hormones-in a word, sex. Like every good catholich boy, he dwells in a limbo between piety and lust." - Tim Blanks. Fabrics considered as sin-less or pure like lace were mixed with sexual, hormonals and wild leopard prints, making a balance in what is sex and chastity. I loved the 2 in 1 pieces, making a pant and a blazer look like a jumpsuit. (Favorite looks below).

  • Dries Van Notten: The white shirts with the watercolor splashed to create a haphazard Rorshchach blots were hand painted by a coture atelier in Lake Como, creating such a beautiful piece i would buy and hang it over the wall, the way it see's on the models is amazing so imagine how they would look in real life. Moving from that subject, there also were presented white double-brested suits with either shorts or long pants, snow washes denim, pink-ish-salmos colored blazer and pants. (Favorite looks below).
