Rude Boys Rule...
Knotted Up: 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's Fall 2012/2013The Menswear Fall 2012-2013 Shows are occurring in Paris and Milan and here are some highlights for my lovely devoted BLOG readers---since after all, it can't all be about Fab Red Carpet Divas, Figure Skating Costumes and Beauty Pageant Madness here on my blog...It's time to discuss the latest in Menswear--Let's begin with 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's Fall 2012/2013:
British Punk Boys: 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's Fall 2012/2013The theme was "Elegant Anarchist"--think Rude Boys, Young Punks, 60's Britain. Style.com's reviewer said "Too much elegance and not enough anarchy" of the collection. I kinda liked it. Big clunky Doc Marten-looking shoes (were they Doc Marten or Phillip Lim's versions?), high-waist, paper-bag shaped trousers that ended above the ankle--"High Waters" or "Floods", as they used to call them back in my day. Extra long wide belts were the accessories du jour.
It's Cold Outside: 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's Fall 2012/2013And big elegant coats are always a must for Fall/Winter--as well as a great 3.1 Phillip Lim staple--I own one fab Phillip Lim coat I bought at Barney's NY several years ago and I cannot LIVE without it! Maybe next Fall/Winter, I might upgrade to a newer version... Click Below to watch Runway Video of 3.1 Phillip Lim Men's Fall/Winter 2012/2013:
