Qasimi; What's Next?

Qasimi put these items out for S/S this past July. I can't wait to see what is next up for the label.

Definitely check out the site HERE.

The mix of clothes is very regal in tone, particularly with the crystals as seen above. Check out the runway pics to see more of the details of the pieces. The fashion is like that of a persian prince on remote holiday.

The pics above are by photographer Mariano Vivanco, site HERE.

 Photographer: Kwannam Chu 

This pic just takes me to a place I've been to before, but in so many of the books I have read. You know, the ones with characters that have all the money in the world, not a care, BUT are emotionally tormented. How could you not want to be the man who rocks this number to the dinner party?!?

Clik KWANNAM CHU's name to check out his blog.

Duckie Brown has the body suit

Duckie Brown included the trend of the year, in my opinion: MALE BODY SUIT, in their NYFW show. Check out the full collection via link below.

Their variation on the trend is a bit more subtle than some have been. It's more of a Trunk style rising just above the navel. It has a sheer quality to it and bunches a bit. Very bandlike. Great for around the house or pool, I think. And, check out the last pic: The hair and sunglasses are right on. A lot of the DB models were sporting shades on the walk.

"Dandy" shoot for T magazine

The new style issue for T magazine (New York Times) is out. This shoot was inspired by Gabriele D'Annunzio who is sometimes called "The Father of Italian Decadence". I believe that such a lifestyle is still in the fore of Italian culture.

The coats are fantastic as are the boots.

Thomas Lohr--JW Anderson Body Suit

Because I am fascinated with the Body Suit, right now. Here is the JW Anderson Body Suit used, again, in a spread by photographer Thomas Lohr. Also think the Helmet and Body Armor by Alun Davies is interesting. Where would one wear such a articles of clothing? I don't know. But, Halloween is coming up...

Born To Be Blue

Because blue is my favorite color. And, the sweaters look great layered (Prada and Shades of Greige) For when it's really cold outside. The Acne coat looks very cool, as well.

Richard Chai Fall 2009 Collection

Mr. Chai is the coat and jacket master. This collection seems to be centered around the outerwear. For me, that is where it shines. I am not as much of a fan of the pants, but a couple of the jumpers are nice, too. But the coats and jackets is where it is at for Richards current collection.
