Steven Meisel shot Kill Your Darlings actor Dane DeHaan for Prada Man Spring/Summer 2014 ads. This continues the trend of Miuccia Prada using indie actors of varying levels of popularity model her menswear collections. Dane DeHaan looks like a he is a great fit to me. He has the little bit of strangeness that works well with the clothes and the ad campaign. Photo from ONTD.

Duckie Brown FW 12

A few days ago. I went to the Duckie Brown menswear show. I love going to menswear shows. It is so interesting to see how the other half lives. The collection, designed by Steven Cox and Daniel Silver, was a real treat to see. I loved the collection. It was amazing. The asymmetrical layered shirts will be a cool look for men and women to try. The black and grey color palette mixed with reds and oranges will be perfect for brightening up the fall.  I think my favorite part besides the baggy plaid pants were the chunky, oversized fair isle sweaters and the double breasted coats.  This was a solid collection from the design duo.

 

Odin Fall 2011 Lookbook

odinWhile I was in New York for fashion week, I checked out two of the Odin stores because a friend of mine works there.  I had heard about this store before, but I had never taken a peek inside. The menswear store was amazing beyond belief.  I am so glad my friend works there because I love their menswear and there bath, beauty, and home products too. I already told my friend which candle I want for my birthday. This fall’s menswear is already in stores. See pictures from the lookbook below. Photos from Odin.

Guest Post: Menswear Fall 2011

My defining show for Spring 2011 menswear season went to Raf Simons.  It was a collection that summed up my aesthetic at the time, and still probably sums up my ideal aesthetic to this day.  So when the Fall 2011 shows started to roll around, kicking off in Milan with the Trussardi 1911 100 year celebration(actually held in Florence as a part of Pitti Uomo), I was on the look out for a show to do just that for me this season.  While I sadly couldn’t find one show in it’s entirety, there were various “moments” that piqued my interests.

The Ungaro Drama NEVER Ends!

CHECK OUT THE NEW ITEMS IN THE FAT AND SKINNY SHOP!

From The Cut:

Emanuel Ungaro‘s revolving door continues. After womenswear designer Estrella Archs left the label last week, menswear designer Franck Boclet announced his departure from the company after a three-year tenure. In response, the label said it will put its menswear runway collection on hold, with the possibility of relaunching it in the future. However, it will still produce its licensed menswear lines. As for Boclet, he plans to launch his own menswear line at men’s fashion week in June.

Fall 2010 Trends

Please support The Fat and Skinny Shop!
If you have been following the shows in New York, you have probably seen lots of leather, velvet, fur, menswear for women, and leggings.  New York is telling the world that those are the trends that are in for the fall. PETA will not be happy about this.  Two collections that used a bit of all of those elements were the Altuzarra and Alexander Wang collections. Photos from Style.com.
The Altuzarra collection had lots of leather, velvet, menswear influences. A lot of the pieces were very tight and structured. Some of the tuxedos and fur coats reminded me of Tom Ford’s run at Gucci  There was one catsuit that reminded me of Michelle Pfeiffer’s Catwoman catsuit from Batman. Many of the leather pieces had stitching criss crossing along the outer parts of the garments.
The Alexander Wang collection had plenty of menswear, leather, and velvet to go around.  Velvet was draped over the arms or made into short dresses. Some velvet hung from backpacks. Chunky platform heels were draped with the bottoms of extra long leggings.  There was an excellent motorcycle jacket that Wang elongated all the way to the floor. Some people were put off by the menswear look in  the collection. It was either a you like it or not collection. I must say, the unwearableness of the collection caught me off guard, but I can appreciate the art of it all.
