The fall 2011 men’s exhibits have just completed in Milan. The trend highway present is transferring to Paris subsequent where Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and Dior Homme show their collections. However whereas there have been thrilling trends to return out of the Milan reveals (such as the snappy colours at Jil Sander and the 70s tailoring at Prada) and extra to come back surely from town of Lights, I nonetheless really feel that men are sometimes left out of the vogue sport.
I say this because I actually need to wear one thing from Phoebe Philo. But sadly, the designer of Celine who changed the way women dressed in a single season does not make males’s clothes. True, there are menswear designers who create clean minimalist clothes like Raf Simons, Simon Spurr and Italo Zucchelli at Calvin Klein, however vogue is all in regards to the Philo mania right now and i want to take part on the craze as do the many guys who have snapped up the Celine totes simply so they can say that they own a piece of the designer’s genius. The very fashionable Ines de la Fressange has been quoted saying that “it’s higher to spend your cash on Celine than on Botox.” I would like to have the ability to say something to that impact too.
I think that some of Philo’s designs for Celine will translate well to menswear just like the colour blocked leather t-shirts and the sleeveless coats with no lapels. I personally would put on the white trousers with green and blue stripes on the sides from her spring collection if she lower them for men. If she does create menswear, I can see her filling the void left by Helmut Lang. Fashionable city warriors in very streamlined clothing. I doubt she will cross over though. However a man who loves fashion can dream.
I’d additionally prefer to see Tory Burch create a males’s line. No, I’m not looking to wear tunics or her famous Reva ballerinas. I might like to see how she’ll apply her love for vibrant colours and patterns to men’s clothes. I prefer to think that Tory Burch Man — ought to there ever be one — will likely be stuffed with luxe boho pieces impressed by J.P. Getty and Paul Bowles. Robes in paisley prints, shorts with geometric patterns, shirts in degrade colours and possibly an embroidered trouser or two for glamorous Moroccan themed parties. I also can see her making a trench coat in crushed linen with a wild exuberant lining. And suppose concerning the accessories — an orange canvas seashore tote perhaps or Kelly green moccasins or braided leather-based bracelets or Panama hats in shades inspired by a gelato stand. Oh, St. Barth’s here I come.
If Victoria Beckham extended herself to males’s fashion what would her clothes be like? Would she pilfer from her husband’s Dolce & Gabbana and Giorgio Armani filled closet or would she stunned us in a lot the identical method she baffled her naysayers when she launched her eponymous assortment? That a former Spice Women with an affinity to gold lame and chain mail can produce such sturdy, sophisticated and polished ladies’s put on is nothing short of superb. Her males’s assortment I imagine would have architectural blazers which might be nipped in on the waist by unexpected darts, sharp and skinny trousers paired with draped multi-layered belted cardigans and tuxedos in rich jewel tone colours.
And whereas on the topic of girls’s wear designers doing males’s clothes, it can be great if Jason Wu, Proenza Schouler and Thakoon lent their artistic imaginative and prescient to males’s trend as properly. Their contemporaries Phillip Lim, Alexander Wang and Richard Chai are already doing it. Men’s vogue can be much more fun in the event that they have been in the combination.
