Color for the Boys

Thomas Gibbons shot by Chris Petranis in GQ Russia

It’s always interesting to see the looks from the shows and then watch at how the various voices screaming for attention in the industry are interpreted to the masses by the various fashion editors and stylists. I could have told you when the shows were going on that for menswear it was going to be a colorful season. With heavy hitters like Prada, Raf Simons, and Calvin Klein all showing some type of color blocked collections for men, it was sort of a given. Sure enough, publications around the world turned out more than their share of color blocked stories featuring those candy colored striped sweaters that Miuccia sent down the runway and the bright trousers from Jil Sander. Here’s just a handful of images from those editorials as color makes it’s rounds on menswear.

VIDEO: End by Bell Soto

Director: Bell Soto
Collection: Alexander McQueen SS 2011
Publication: V Magazine

You guys may or may not remember, but at first I was really nervous about reviewing the Alexander McQueen collection after Lee’s death. Well, I finally did and I’m slowly becoming more comfortable in dealings with all things McQueen. For example, apparently the Gala at the Met is going to be doing some sort of McQueen inspired event this year, and it seems that Hermione is wearing either McQueen or McQueen knockoffs in every image I see of her for the upcoming movie release. Also there was that entire small debacle with Hell’s Angels suing McQueen for selling the Hell’s Angels knuckle duster, dress, and shirt I believe. Thankfully it was settled out of court but McQueen has put a recall out for all of the pieces and has said they will destroy them all… I really don’t know one person that would return a piece if there’s nothing wrong with it.

But this video was positively beautiful. I loved it most because it showed me details that I missed in my viewing via the Style.com images of the show. For example the collar, or neck of the shirt… I love it. I can’t get enough of it. To me there seems to be so much romance embedded in that one detail alone. It gives nod to so many things and I love it. I also couldn’t help but notice that the pieces that were chosen for this video weren’t the most audacious but we were allowed to seethe exquisite workmanship that went into them. To be honest, that’s the only way Sarah Burton will survive the McQueen label. Don’t try to imitate McQueen’s creative mind and kick for theatrics, stay true to the design integrity of the brand. It will serve her well.
