MEN'S FASHION WEEK: SS14 MUST-HAVES
Phillip Lim's SS14 menswear collection is everything I envision myself wearing for eternity. The floral embroidery juxtaposed with the graphical geometric design on this sweater and short pairing has me completely breathless.
Dries Van Noten's collection is as decadent as this floral silken shirt and burnt velvety trousers -- elegance and femininity, without restraint, on a male frame. Breaking gender boundaries has never looked so beautiful!
The Lanvin man is looking a bit like Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent, but with more structure and a provocatively industrial vibe. If I could cruise around the urban streets of LA in this sick, asymmetrical super luxe moto-inspired jacket...I am all #aboutdatlyfe.
Miuccia Prada is the master behind what I am coining as "cinematic fashion." The clothes astutely capture the sunset of a tropical paradise, with the overswept, sweaty hair of the models and the overall sweltering seductiveness of palm tree prints and textures. Basically, this is sexual congress on the runway.
Last but certainly not the least, Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent collection continues to blow my mind. Just as I am recovering from his life-changing FW12 collection, I find myself spiraling into another mad love affair -- specifically with this super glam, tightly-fitted blazer with that 80s disco flair. This is one of those pieces that I needed...like yesterday.
And there you have it -- my must-have recommendations from this SS14 Men's Fashion Week in both Milan and Paris! I already did some shopping for you by highlighting selections from the brand's current collection and other similarly-branded items. Let me know if you end up buying one of these, because I am about to shop shop shop!
