Matteo Molinari F/W 2011

I've always wanted a matador's jacket--traje de luces (suit of lights)--of my own. I suppose there is something slightly romantic about bullfighting and the life of toreros that I find appealing. Matteo Molinari's Fall/Winter 2011 collection takes some inspiration from the "suit of lights" that toreros wear in the ring--with the high-waist and short jacket. I'm also enjoying the slim black tie. Of course, Molinari has simplified the tradition with use of black and white as well as the idea of gender lines--but the Spanish influence is there.

Ports 1961 S/S 2012

Enjoying this sleeveless jacket by Ports 1961 for their S/S 2012 collection. I like for the fact that you don't see sleeveless jackets too often, but also because Ports retain a very simplistic approach to design--and the jacket looks good even with sleeves. Check it out HERE on This.Hearts.On.Fire

Leather Goods in DT Lux

Spanish language mag, DT Lux, features a spread photographed by Juan Aldabaldetrecu using lots of leather accessories including the great correajes--belting--by Zegna. I enjoy the use of the straps against the suits. Also featured are football pads--classic style. See more of the spread HERE on fashionisto.

Behind the Scenes: Mugler SS 2012

Lots has been said about Mugler--mainly due to the personalities surrounding the label. But one of the most interesting facets of Mugler's most recent collection is the use of gleaming accessories throughout, as seen in this behind-the-scenes shot by Paolo Simi for LURVE magazine. You can see more of the collection HERE on Fashionisto.

Juun J Spring 2012

A futuristic cool--lots of angles and color scales--not to mention some very interesting footwear. This from Juun J for the Korean designer's S/S 2012 collection--one of the more exciting collections this season. I'm also enjoying the use of the bracelets on-wrist. See more from the collection HERE on this.hearts.on.fire.

Song for the Mute S/S 2012

I'm enjoying this print from the Song for the Mute S/S 2012 collection. The shot is by Bowen Arico. I am also a sucker for a desert location--or any outdoor location for that matter.  Both the label and photographer are based in Australia. See more from the shoot HERE on Fashionisto.
