Strip(e)tease: Major props to Tommy Hilfiger for stepping up the game for his once forgotten fashion brand. His latest collection for Spring 2012 reeked of American classics—a trend that needs to die. But, it all somehow seemed fresh and modern with a nice take on stripes.


The Street Style Power Rankings: Fashion Week

As captured by STREETFSN’s HB Nam, we ranked the 10 men who killed it on the streets of Milan and Paris during Fashion Week. Check out the rest of the sartorial contenders here

6. Name: Bruce Pask

Occupation: Fashion Director, T: The New York Times Style Magazine

Location: Milan

The Signature: The Pask is easy to spot, just look for the dapperest man with a jacket draped over his shoulders, like some time-lost combination of Dracula and a victorious Greek emperor.

The Clincher: The book. What could it be? Perhaps The Leopard by Archibald Colquhoun, to suit the Italian setting?


In Color: A Chromatic Breakdown of Spring 2012

How does one process the thousands of items of clothing that debuted in Paris and Milan last week? Perspective helps. Context is good. Graphs are key. Here, a selection of colors that popped up more than once, arranged by hue. Spoiler alert: A certain shade of red had a big year.

Model Moment: Brazilian male model Francisco Lachowski is one of fashion’s swoon-worthy it-boys-of-the-moment. During the shows, Dolce & Gabbana’s Swide magazine caught up with him so he could reveal a little more about himself than just his sizzling six-pack.

Get Me Bodied: A “Details subscriber” is a tongue-in-cheek term I use for straight men who I believe to be “closet-cases”. Like an “elephant-in-the-room”, Details magazine is speaking to a self-identified heterosexual male who pretends he’s not attracted to other men. To further prove my point: their March 2011 issue is devoted to the introduction of their brand-spanking-new Body Section—an easy excuse to provide their readers with much-needed masturbation material.

On another note: Details is doing something pretty major by featuring male models Sean ‘O Pry, Arthur Kulkov and Noah Mills on their March 2011 cover instead of an A-list celebrity. When was the last time a model, especially a male model, graced a cover of a mainstream American fashion magazine? Kudos to Details for hopefully relaunching a possible new direction in an over-saturated celebrity marketplace!


RICK OWENS A/W 2011-12: Yes! One of the few men’ss designers who is actually creating new silhouettes and pushing the luxury envelope. There is no reinventing of the wheel with [Rick] Owens. It’s always a new method of getting around altogether. God bless him. Those boots!


THOM BROWNE A/W 2011-12: Always a spectacle! Always a showman. It would be easy to get lost in [Thom Browne’s Fall/Winter 2011-12] show, but take away the frills and there remains a real collection. This IS the luxury dandy. I would skip rent for that feather chapeau! This season Thom [Browne] took the colors from traditional tartans as a pallette and pulled a mash-up. While the silhouettes might not be revolutionary, his use of fabrics and colors—not to mention his fetish for grosgrain ribbon—sets him apart from the competition. Carry on Mr. Browne!


MISSONI A/W 2011-12: The knit-wit that I am, I never get enough of Missoni. It’s truly a shame that Missoni’s menswear hasn’t moved beyond cult status here in the United States. Even more disheartening is the fact that Missoni’s menswear isn’t even carried in the company’s own Madison Ave flagship store in New York. This is great product. Alas, like many European brands, if you don’t get into the States, the States won’t get into you. Will someone let me know where I can find Missoni other than Century 21?


WOOLRICH A/W 2011-12: Yes, fashion purists—I’m lumping Woolrich John Rich & Bros. and Woolrich Woolen Mills together. These are no brainers—great product, great prices; wrap it up! Sure to be at stores like Mitchells/Wilkes Bashford, Boyd’s, Union Made Goods, Odin, Barneys, Michael Allen, Camouflage, etc. My store shout-outs are finished!

Quotable | Alexandre Plokhov Says Finding the Right Partners is Important

Alexandre Plokhov, speaking to BoF about shutting down his celebrated cult menswear label Cloak, moving on to design for Versace, and then launching a new, eponymous label, one of the best new collections for A/W 2011 as featured in this short, sharp fashion film by Douglas Keeve.

Acne Treatment: For Fall 2011-12, Acne really proved to the men’s fashion world that it’s more than just a hip, Swedish denim brand.

Color Me Crazy: It’s a well-known fact that the Fall/Winter 2011-12 menswear shows had a surprising infusion of color. But, leave it to Walter Van Beirendonck to take the trend to the next level with this crazy get-up.

Mad Hatters: Hats off on to the menswear designers who have incorporated a collection of headpieces into their collections for Fall/Winter 2011-12. I would be rich for every hat I’ve seen on the runways in Milan and Paris Men’s Fashion Week.

D&G Dolce & Gabbana Dries Van Noten John Richmond Miharayasuhiro Neil Barrett Roberto Cavalli

Fur Real: For Fall 2011-12, there was enough fur on the runways to give PETA activists a heart attack. 

It’s Good Because It’s Golden: Dries Van Noten knows how to present a good collection. Actually, that’s an understatement. He knows how to present a fantastic collection. For his Fall/Winter 2011-12 menswear show, he sent his models down a grand catwalk in Paris’ Musee Bordelle to a remixed soundtrack of Golden Years by David Bowie. That’s possibly the best song to describe Van Noten’s superb style aesthetic for the season since it was inspired by David Bowie himself.
