Man, Oh Man!

January 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Two menswear looks we loved and a couple we didn’t. Sound off in the comments and tell us what you’ve been into so far this season. Be sure to click on the photos to see the collections in full on NowFashion!

With all the hoopla over actors filling out the finale of Prada‘s F/W collection, you may have overlooked the beautifully conceived collection. Miuccia’s masterful meditation on male power featured an array of memorable looks that treated the subject matter with humor. Football helmet prints on oh so serious top coats, denim sneaking into formal wear and a whole lot of  thoughtful nods to diplomats, dictators and military men of influence. Adrien Brody especially looked dapper in his red shades and fur – potential Oscar outfit? Time will tell.

Versace refers to this particular pattern as floro-flague and we’re not sure if we love the audacity of it, or hate the very idea of such a thing. It is somewhat memorable though – even with that horrific lime green fur collar. We do admire River Viiperi‘s ability to look good in even the most outlandish pieces –  that has to count for something.


Italo Zucchelli’s Calvin Klein collection was intended as a tribute to New York’s unique blend of modernism and tradition. Definitely a fitting idea and a sweatshirt with croc accents certainly encapsulates the concept accurately, but we’re still having a hard time imagining where exactly this sort of piece fits outside of the editorial pages. Where will you be wearing your exorbitantly priced croc hoodie? Other than the obvious answers of Le Bain, Equinox and in every Pitti Immagine Uomo street style picture taken next year.

OIC Etro

If you lost the sweater and dyed this violet you would have the ultimate performance wardrobe for Prince. Alas, these are not the purple one’s touring ensembles and as such we can find no logical excuse for this combination of elements. Orange velvet, a cowboy hat, one of Bill Cosby’s old sweaters – the mix is confusing and we usually like Etro’s unique melange of influences.

Daniel Jackson celebrates the looks of the season in British Vogues collections special. Shooting the signature pieces from the spring/summer collections as selected by Francesca Burns. Every piece you’d expect to see is there, from the salmon tinted Calvin Klein spaghetti strap shift, to McQueen’s extravagantly detailed chiffon numbers. Added bonus – each ensemble is paired with a girl who elevates the look, from Maria Bradley’s innate edge adding an ounce of cool to Armani’s classic suit, to Elise Crombez showing you exactly how YSL ought to be worn.

Has Freja Beha Erichsen graduated from star model to full fledged fashion icon? Vogue China seems to think so, enlisting Tao Okamoto to recreate Freja’s signature tomboy-chic look in Lachlan Bailey‘s beauty story. Styled by Clare Richardson and featuring leather and denim duds from Chanel and Calvin Klein, the story does a good job recreating Freja’s quintessential model off duty style. Always fun to see one model pay tribute to another, perhaps next month we can have the tables turned with Freja sporting Tao’s memorable bowl cut.

Sui He captures the grace and power of influential Japanese dancer Kazuo Ohno, in V Magazine‘s Asia Issue. Shot by Glen Luchford and styled by Beat Bolliger, the stark story features minimalist runway looks and dramatic hair and makeup by Lucia Pieroni and Eugene Souleiman. Each element of the story calls to mind Ohno’s legendary stage presence presence and Sui He’s skillful posing, even calls to mind Butoh performance in some shots.

The sun is back and it’s that time of the year when our favorite magazines are pushing eyewear. These accessories are as essential as the clothes themselves with more and more campaigns dedicated especially to them. Here’s a peek at Nimue Smit for Giorgio Armani, Constance Jablonski for cK Calvin Klein, Freja Beha Erichsen for Chanel, Anna Jagodzinska for David Yurman, and of course Madonna in her eyewear capsule collection for D&G. My personal favorite for S/S10? The Tom Ford Nikita in tortoise shell shown on Jacquelyn Jablonski, by William Selden for Another Magazine S/S10. What’s your must have eyewear accessory of the season? (Story by Kristen Bolt)
