This morning I woke up cursing my cell phoneâ€™s alarm (â€˜Salut dâ€™Amourâ€™ is getting old) and wanting to go back to sleep for at least seven more minutes. And then it hit me: Stylesightâ€™s extensive coverage of the menâ€™s Spring/Summer â€™08 RTW shows in Milan begins today! And I get to look at them and write about them and generally crawl inside of a menswear cocoon of sorts for a while! In case you canâ€™t tell, I have a soft spot for boysâ€™ fashion. I donâ€™t think it gets nearly enough attention here in the blogosphere, or anywhere else really, so Iâ€™m super excited to share my love with images straight from Stylesight. Iâ€™ll be covering as much ground as I can, so keep checking back for updates and donâ€™t forget to click â€˜more!â€™
Iâ€™ve seen the future, and the future is Burberry. Kicking off the collection was this classic trench, updated with orange and a luggage strap like belt.
With this collection, Burberry managed to make sunglass straps look cool. These Water Shoes are a different story altogether. No no no. I spent most of my childhood trying to avoid these things.
I love the color combination here, and the volume on the jacket. Hell, Iâ€™m even into the mandals, which is surprising.
Thom Browne length pants, Yves Klein blue sequined top, white coat belted in a feminine way AND a tote bag! Do wonders never cease!
Space age fabrics were huge in this collection and worked well on typically â€˜boringâ€™ items such as suits. Also, more sequins!
Pink see through PVC might not be the most obvious choice for dress shirts, but it works!
The old-schoolest Burberry jam of the collection was this tan coat, but check the boxy cut and piping for proof of evolution.
The gold brocade on this jacket reminded me of a ribcage. It also reminded me of PERFECTION.
But then I saw this Elvis-y gold sequined jacket paired with black pants and a simple white tee and my definition of perfection was revised.
How amazingly intricate is this sweater? Also, three cheers for epaulets!
