Armani Spring 2009: Daddy Brings the Heat

armanidos21 Armani Spring 2009: Daddy Brings the Heat

You see Armani and most of the time you can’t help but think red carpet. Actresses like him ’cause his designs look the money and he’s chic  but not so much so that you’re ever gonna find yourself caught out there in one of his gowns. For his Spring 2009 showing, you can still envision a lot of the dresses he showed all over the Oscars, but there was something wicked around the edges about the collection, brought forth by the make-up, hair and of course the accessories.

Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2009: Better

29 January 2009, 16.58 | Posted in Couture, Fashion | No comments »

Who doesn’t love Jean Paul the man? Still, the nagging sense that’s he’s struggled over the years to recreate the magic of the 90s remains. No doubt this issue is in part connected to cash, which is critical to building a brand’s coolness cache . My guess is that Jean Paul doesn’t have as much of it as some of the other titans of the business.  Alas, life is anything but fair. That being said, his latest collection was lovely to look at…

Jethro Cave: Bad Seed Rising

29 January 2009, 16.32 | Posted in Fashion, Music, celebrity | No comments »

I couldn’t helped but be completely transfixed by this photo (via Jak&Jil) of Jethro Cave, who was modeling during men’s fashion week in Paris.  Some of our readers no doubt remember the days when Jethro’s daddy, Nick, was just about as “it” a rocker as you could get, with his super sexy song “Deanna.” And while there’s nothing like the original, I’d say Jethro is not bad for up-and-coming rock royalty (though he mostly gets slammed in the comments section under image!).

Christian Lacroix Spring 2009 Insane Earrings

Judging from Chris’s Spring 2009 collection, the dude not only has hope (see lack of said hope in previous post on Chanel), but balls the size of Jupiter. If the ship goes down, he’s gonna be the last one standing on the very tippy top of the mast singing his lungs out in something bright and sparkly.
Beyonce saw these and was like, "Daddy, I need to have those--immediatamente!"

Chanel: It’s all in the Details

05 March 2008, 13.59 | Posted in Accessories, Fashion, Shoes | No comments »

With the U.S. economy being half a mess and everone feeling all cautious, it’s not surprising that the runways are pulling back, too (Alexander McQueen’s wealthy-lil-Goth girl show excepted). As such, we’ve been looking, readers, trust me, and we haven’t seen a whole lot from the fall 2008 runways to write about. Sure, the clothes being shown on the French runways are GORGEOUS, but that’s nothing new. This time around the inspiration is all in the details, case in point Chanel:

^^Not sure how I feel about the raincoat, but the two-tone stockings are kick-ass and the way they match up with the shoes is what makes the Chanel name such a hot property on Canal Street.

^^Textured stockings are probably gonna be a big deal this fall, but I just like how arresting this shot is–everything is black but the play of texture, tone and proportion make it amazing.

^^I’m into clutches these days and I like how this one adds some dash to the collection

There’s a couple more shots from the show if you click to the right
