i hate when i like d & g, usually not a brand i can get down with. however, if you send outrageously comfortable khakis and madras type shirts down a runway…i won’t stand in your way. note to self: buy espadrilles. this is the way i usually dress in the summer, very easy, nothing too tight because i sweat like a pig. cool, see ya.
1: d&g: it’s mad men picnic in the connecticut grass
and this is how i dress in a nutshell. glad to see these shots (minus myself of course) up on tommy tons gq.com feed.
1: sean o’pry in milan
2: oh…that’s me
3: not sure who it is not captioned, but fuck yeah layering!
missoni a/w 10
thoughts: i’ve made no secret about my love for missoni as of late. they kill it every season. that coat in look 2 is gonna give a potential burberry purchase a run for the money despite the massive collar. of course my budget will probably only allow for one of those crazy awesome scarves. other than that, digging the fur use, trademark prints and patterns and of course the patchwork cardigans. need now.

c.p. company a/w 2010
thoughts: i can’t explain how nice it is to see some color on the runways for fall. i can pretty much guarantee that this collection is going to be one of my favorites for the season. the styling was pretty boss-mixed plaids, open jackets and artfully draped scarves. the fit on all the clothes is great, jeans don’t have to be skinny to fit and khakis can have some room to them and still look proper. the worked in look also strikes a chord with me, particularly on this leather jacket and the plaid shirts. the whole thing is reminiscent of bottega veneta’s spring 2010 show but i don’t mind at all. not pictured were some all black looks that completely turned me off and i will say that i detest these boots. i’m sorry red wing and co., but i can’t get on board with white soles…apologies most sincere. i hope to god that the plaid hooded button front makes its way to nyc come fall.
who i see in this: paul bunyan, that tortured kid from a separate peace and maybe oliver twist
burberry prorsum a/w 2010
i do love seeing runway shows live, but viewing them in real time from my bedroom in my pajamas is pretty incredible. so thanks to burberry for streaming their a/w 2010 live today.
thoughts: i was helpless against this show and i won’t deny it. heavy military inspiration, lots of epaulets and understated detailing on the separates. obviously the statement was in the outerwear which is no surprise. would definitely be interested in picking up some of these pieces come fall. in terms of the bomber jackets, the exaggerated collar isn’t really my thing but i can appreciate the design sensibility and i dig the reversal of leather and fur. my only quips would be that the pants are a little to slim cut for my taste and i’m not really a huge fan of those ‘boots with the furrr’ but i love the brown boots in looks 1 and 3 above. pretty sure i’ll grab that coat in look 1 if i can be disciplined enough.
who i see in this: sherlock, robinson crusoe (were he not stranded in the tropics), maybe robespierre (some silhouettes were quite severe)
