Jil Sander Menswear Fall/Winter 2008-2009


Jil Sander held its menswear fashion show yesterday in Milan. I was anxiously looking for my male model favourites (I’m a sucker I know) and then I noticed these dizzying array of patterns and prints. The first thing that came to my mind was…

Click click click!

They remind me of digital textures of my good ol’ graphics program Macromedia Adobe Fireworks!

I’m not really THAT proficient in graphic design but I am familiar with some of the basic tools of my software. In fact, the version of Fireworks that I have is probably obsolete but it serves its purpose. Anyway, the prints Jil Sander used on their collection reminds me of the textures that I have.

I toyed around with some of the textures and here’s what I got…

I **KNOW** they’re not exactly the same but that’s what I thought of first.

When I saw the other pieces, all sorts of things went inside my head, like the Cartier’s green marble walls and all these other rock/stone tiles, flooring, etc.

And then of course, my new eyecandy of the season is this guy named Devin Childers (that’s what my ONTD fashin fags said his name is) who is OMG oh so gorgeous. He’s American, too, which is quite odd but whatevs. I know, right? 100% WEAKNESS. WEAKNESS I TELL YOU. By now y’all should know the type of guys I like.

It’s sickening I know. Homegirl is only 19 so that makes him jailbait… and that makes ME a fuckin pedophile/old fart/cradle snatcher/whatever. Ugh.

And speaking of "digital textures", I also thought of Josh Goot’s Spring 2008 collection where he had these  "ripple effect" whatever things.

Now… let me steal Olga Sherer for a second because she’s my thinspiration, do a face switch and picture me AND Devin together…

What do y’all think?

Cha-ching, cha-ching, cha-ching!

Mixed-race babies are the Chanel of babies, no?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Watch me work it. I’m perfect!

Email me and tell me you love me. My email address is bryanboy@gmail.com.

I love you all!


  1. devin looks so generic he looks like someone from my school.
    i’m so disappointed with your taste in men. i thought gays have impeccable taste, i was wrong!

  2. your amour du jour looks really plain and common if you asked me. quite mediocre looking in fact, and pasty looking.
    those prints are VILE. i would not go out with a man dressed in THAT!

  3. i’m so disappointed with your taste in men. i thought gays have impeccable taste, i was wrong!….oh how rude…and what a hater!
    there’s something unique about devin’s face..you juts don’t get it cause you’re not gay!

  4. The male collection is horrible… those prints… awful, just awful. I have to agree with that British male Model that once said Raf Simons designs rubbish, that even the models are embarrassed to wear. That being said, the obnoxio-/pretentious queens over at TheFashionSpot rave about this collection… lol.

  5. I think the prints are bold and strong. Very defining for the collection. At least something new in terms of prints for men’s collection. Every other prints are revivals of something. Ive never seen it and I thought, finally!a strong print to perk up a boring black and white. Though I dont believe every pieces will make it to the stores, imagining those pieces separately..especially the first print, the marble like one, is engaging as a wallet, belts, bag straps, ties, shirts, even shorts..cute! Even the jacket could be workable, depending on who’s wearing it and how. Wear the prints with black or white, pretty amazing. I almost see the theme as his take on a male chameleon on a marble floor haha since he piles all the prints together like that.
    My vote is on Jil Sanders print will be hot on all the editorials.

  6. Haha Devin Childers has been my best friend since like 1st grade
    i go to school with him
    haha FUNNY!
