Jean Paul Gaultier Boots

I didn't post much on the last collection by Jean Paul Gaultier, but I do enjoy the boots as seen in the two looks below. The jacket with the ribbed effects on the shoulders is nice, too. See more HERE on Morphosis.

Zana Bayne Leather 2011

Zana Bayne Leather has created some very enjoyable pieces for their S/S 2011 collection. When will it be acceptable to wear these pieces over the suit at the office--I mean, it could really help business, I think. Some of my favorite pieces are pic'ed below. You can also check out the lookbook video Shot by Char Alfonzo and styled by Cameron Cooper.

"Scorpio Rising" by Sam Scott Schiavo

I'm enjoying the shorts and suspenders--the whole ensemble--featured in this shoot by Sam Scott Schiavo. See more HERE on Zephyr-files. The shorts by Tiberius are killer, though very short, and I always like a jumpsuit like this one from Superated.

I'm enjoying many of the prints and color combos. 

Mark Pillai for Velvet Magazine

Mark Pillai photographs model Hyacinthe de Geyer for this amazing spread in Velvet Magazine. I'm enjoying the sense of movement in many of the shots as well as the setting by the sea. Of course, the spread also features some great looks and pieces from leading designer brands such as Gucci, Cavalli, Fujiwara, Barret, Yves Saint Laurent, and more.

Ricardo Andrez Spring/Summer 2011

Ricardo Andrez sends his models down the runway covered in white dots for his current S/S 2011 collection. It definitely gives a twist to the photos and presentation, but more important are the looks--particularly enjoying the prints and his shorts. The runway photos are by Rui Vasco. But there are also great behind the scenes pics (black and white) you can check out, shot by Isabel Zuzarte--great. I would love to know more about the "dots." It gives a almost pollen like feel--somewhat whimsical, yet mysterious and masculine at the same time. See more of the looks from Andrez's collection on his blog HERE.

I'm enjoying the high waist shorts offered in the Johannes Faktotum S/S 2011 collection. Here are my two favorite looks from the collection featuring the shorts; along with a cotton sweater, a workwear button down, and...a reflective harness. Love the harness! See more of the collection HERE.

Konrad Parol Spring/Summer 2011

Konrad Parol gives us Ember for his S/S 2011 collection. Walking down the leaf covered streets yesterday, I did want for a flowing article of clothing to get caught up in the wind--very similar to the cape-like sleeveless overlay below. It's just what I had in mind. I'm enjoying the printed pants, too. See more HERE from Fashionsing.

Janice Fronimakis by Renie Saliba

Renie Saliba shot model Janice Fronimakis showing this suit. I'm enjoying the arms/shoulders being blocked a different color. It reminds me of Raf and/or Jil S--it's like a pieced together thrifty version of that look. Yet, for all I know, this could be a damn expensive suit. See more HERE on YVY
