Reporting From Paris
Right now in Paris it’s Fashion Week for Men’s Spring/Summer 2010. Typically I’m not much of a follower of the runways. They’re usually surrounded by a little too much drama and hype and often a bit extreme for practical fashion tastes. I’d rather wait until the watered down stuff reaches stores.
But if you’re patient enough and want to spot the up and coming trends yourself, you could do yourself a favor by starting at men.style.com. Of all the faults of “Men.Style.com“, their fashion show coverage isn’t one of them. They’ve posted easily navigable slideshows of all the major runway shows for Spring 2010 in Paris now. After a quick look, I’m liking Bottega Veneta’s line on display last week in Milan.
A great black and white gingham shirt with a very widely spread collar. The gingham is almost mesmerizing. The sleek black lines of the tie and peaked lapel jacket are accentuated perfectly with the crumpled pocket square.
The extra low cut of the v-neck sweater allows even more of the shirt to show off (unfortunately the shirt in this case appears to be a tie-dyed button down). V-necks are the most utilized items in my closet – a nice cashmere gray or brown can be mixed and matched with practically anything. Jeans and t-shirt, slacks and button down, shorts and sandals.
