Varsity Blues

30/10/2011, Menswear, Shopping

These collegiate varsity jackets are EVERYWHERE this season. I was *this* close to buying a vintage piece in Stockholm a couple of weeks ago but a friend knocked some sense to me so I left the store empty-handed. Meanwhile, I saw these jackets while browsing online stores earlier. I’m a little late to join the game so I’ll pass. I like the Urban Outfitters version though. So so cute.

Those transparent Burberry Prorsum rain coats are now available at Luisa Via Roma. At approximately US$1,500 a pop, the price tag is not for the faint of heart.

Louis Vuiton SS2012 Menswear Full Show

30/06/2011, Fashion and Style, Louis Vuitton, Menswear, Spring Summer 2012

Back in April this year when I visited Paris, Kim Jones quickly gave me a vague preview of his first collection for Louis Vuitton menswear. He also showed me his new office at the Louis Vuitton headquarters. His appointment at Louis Vuitton is well-deserved; he did a sterling job at Dunhill. I wasn’t able to make it to his show a few days ago because I’m currently traveling around India. However, thanks to YouTube, I found the full-length video of his first collection (spring/summer 2012) for Louis Vuitton menswear.

I love all the traveler-inspired looks. With the amount of travel I do, I need a wardrobe upgrade! I’m also obsessed with the blue and red check Damier pattern. I need the scarf, the shirts, the shorts, the cool sandals, the necklaces and the matching belts and backpacks — they’re screaming my name!

Congrats Kim and big hugs from me to you!

Prada Spring Summer 2012 Menswear – First Look

19/06/2011, Fashion and Style, Menswear, Prada, Spring Summer 2012

Here’s the view from my seat aka private styrofoam cube from Prada Casa (just kidding) at the Spring Summer 2012 Prada menswear fashion show. What an amazing, strong showmanship from Miuccia. I am DYING. DYING!!! I can’t. I can’t deal. I can’t breathe. There are so many desirable things from this collection. My friend from Interview magazine told me I’m gonna need some major sucking up to do not just to one Swedish banker but to many. Oh dear. Here’s my wardrobe next season.

I never thought I’d say this but menswear is so exciting these days, no?

Want, Love, Need

18/06/2011, Burberry, Fashion and Style, Menswear, Spring Summer 2012

I love the details of these two tops from the spring/summer 2012 Burberry Prorsum show earlier. It’s all about squares, rectangles and triangles.
