Weavers by 3.1 Phillip Lim

13/05/2011, Fall Winter 2011, Fashion and Style, Menswear, Phillip Lim

I am obsessed with this video featuring 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall/winter 2011 menswear collection for Nowness.

I was watching it the other day and I couldn’t get it off my head. The music, the sheer simplicity and chicness of it all, and of course, the terrific location where it was shot.

JBB* by Jirawat Bote Benchakarn

02/04/2011, Fall Winter 2011, Menswear, Singapore, Thai Designers

Although I didn’t find anything that pushed the envelope at Thai designer Jirawat Bote Benchakarn’s collection, I must say I was charmed by the show. He sent down a myriad of various essentials such as school boy blazers, button-down shirts, sweaters and cardigans, mostly paired with shorts. I love the green detail at the back of two jacket collars. I thought they were terrific. And the double-breasted blazer and camouflage short combo? Scott Schuman, who posted THIS entry in May last year, is going to be very proud.

A Flat Situation at Prada

A Flat Situation at Prada

Now I know how Tim Blanks felt when he saw me (sans the usual vertiginous heels) the other day. While trying to find our seats at the Burberry Prorsum fall/winter show, he jokingly told me that it was the first time he’s seen me at my natural height. I wore my shearling-lined men’s Burberry boots at the show.

At the Prada show yesterday evening, another classy and sassy lady traded her signature skyscrapers for something a wee bit more comfortable.

My beloved Anna Dello Russo (and Prada seatmate/next-door neighbour) wore a pair of chic Church’s while I wore these patent-leather sneakers I bought at the Lanvin store in Singapore last month.

Dolce & Gabbana Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Full Show

Dolce & Gabbana Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Full Show

Immaculate and impeccable tailoring as always from my favourite Italian duo, Dolce & Gabbana. I'm also happy they infused the collection with colour (red, maroon, burgundy, etc) this time around after several monochromatic seasons. The sequined fuschia jacket? It has my name on it. Adoro!

On a side note, how do you feel about the drop crotches?

Prada Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Fashion Show Invitation

Opening my stack of invites during fashion week is always fun. I always beam with delight whenever I get a seat with a clear line of sight. When it's a front-row seat at a hot ticket show, such as Prada, it's a true honor and a pleasure.

Burberry Prorsum Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Finale (Must-Watch!)

16/01/2011, Burberry, Fall Winter 2011, Fashion and Style, Menswear

Burberry Prorsum Menswear Fall Winter 2011 Finale

From Rio de Janeiro, I'm now in Milan! Due to my late arrival, I was still at Malpensa by the time Dolce & Gabbana started hence I was unable to attend the show. I was also late at Jil Sander who gave me a front row seat. The show already kicked off by the time my cab arrived to the venue. I wanted to cry when I heard the music thumping as I sprinted up the stairs. More on that later. It is what it is.

I thoroughly enjoyed the new fall/winter Burberry Prorsum show. I love the solid-coloured coats at the beginning, soft cashmere sweaters interwoven with fur, perhaps sheared rabbit or sheared mink and of course, many of the fur-trimed coats including the black-and-white mink extravaganza which I'll show you later. For now, let me show you this quick video I made of the spectacular finale in which he sent his models in plastic raincoats to protect them from getting wet. And the faux rain set up on the runway? Dramatic.

Lunch With Linus Gustin [i heart male models]

01/08/2010, Current Affairs, Fashion and Style, Lanvin, Linus Gustin, Menswear, Models, Paris, Prada, Spring Summer 2011

Lunch With Linus Gustin

Back in Paris, me and my pals Sonny and Isaac thought it was a good idea to have (very) late lunch before the spectacular Damir Doma show. A few minutes after my order arrived, male model Linus Gustin rolled up  beside me. He was on his way to the show venue but he was starving. He asked us how long it took for our food to arrive and I told him it wasn’t very long so he joined our table. I thought I was gonna die — hello, how often do you have lunch with male models? I’m talking about real, working models not “models“. Anyway, I found out he’s Swedish. Y’all know how I go weak in the knees when it comes to Swedish guys. There I was, in Paris, having a beautiful meal with friends, enjoying a nice glass of rose and I’ve got some eye candy beside me. It was icing on the cake!
