So, here are some of my "Nick Highlights" from the first stop: Milan. Want to know what you should be looking like--and the styles you should be wearing this Fall? Well, it's all below...get ready for Shrunken Fitted Jackets and MORE Drop-Crotch Pants. Shall we begin:
DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2011:
Preacher Red Carpet: DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2011
Key Trends: Drop Crotch Pants; cropped pants; very fitted waistcoats (vests); over-hanging shirts; leather Tannery Worker aprons(?); worn jeans
Where Are My Ten Wives: DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2011
Themes: Pioneer Fashion,Southern (Sexy) Preachers and a dash of Gothic (at least for DSquared2!).
Tannery Chic: DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2011's Tim Blanks ended his review on this note: "Lean, mean monochrome tailoring; skinny denims; judicious use of black leather detailing; hints of luxury in fur trims; and crystal-beaded waistcoats. It may just be enough to seduce their fan base, but today it felt like slim pickings for everyone else" Click Below for the Runway Video of DSquared2 Fall/Winter 2011:
Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011:
Brit Mod Pop: Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011
Key Trends: Very fitted SHRUNKEN/cropped jackets that end at "high hip" (about 2" above sleeve length); big shoes; drop-crotch pants; cropped pants "High Waters"; Double-breasted; black, slate-gray and red; suspenders.
LOOONG Crotch: Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011
Themes: Bryan Ferry Tailored Rocker Glam, "Come On Eileen" with Money
Happy Xmas 2011: Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011
Here's a quote from Tim Blanks: "The clothes on the runway, though, were better suited to East End boys. Low-rise, multi-pocketed pants were slung off skinny suspenders. One model sported Freddy Krueger stripes and a trilby casually tossed back on his head. There was a spiffy edge to a checked, fitted, double-breasted jacket, while cropped, double-vented jackets and those pegged, low-slung pants created a boxy, bubble-butted silhouette that added beef to the already buff models" Click Below for the Runway Video of Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter 2011: Gucci Fall/Winter 2011:
Seat 2A British Airways: Gucci Fall/Winter 2011
Trends: Double-Breasted; Very Fitted; two-button jackets; polished; gray, light plum, blue, copper, bronzed colors; semi-skinny ties; fun pocket scarves; LOGO Carry-On Bags
Can You Hang My Coat: Gucci Fall/Winter 2011
Themes: Vintage Gucci Euro-Rocker Tailoring, late 60s-early 70s styling, Rod Stewart leaving Heathrow Airport traveling British Airways First Class in 1970.
Sharp Shoulder: Gucci Fall/Winter 2011
Tim Blanks from said this: "The cornerstone of the collection was a lean two-button suit, its trouser flaring slightly over the shoe. With Faces-era Rod Stewart croaking over the sound system, the connection with a vintage Gucci moment was inescapable" Click Below for the Gucci Fall/Winter 2011 Runway Video:
