I've never really taken an interest in menswear... until now. It's not just the male models (who are gorgeous, may i add) but the designs too. I never really thought there was much versatility in menswear, nothing that could be as exceptionally creative and unique as womens wear. I was completely wrong! I love menswear, and I love to add some pieces to a feminine outfit for women. So here's my take on some of my favourite Fall 2008 Menswear collections.

I really do love this. It's so quirky and retro! The exquisite plaids are perfect for fall. I'm really digging the patterned pants and bow ties. It's such a fun colour palette too! The bright yellow and the maroon velvet blazers are to die for.

Alexander McQueen
This is probably one of my favourite looks: the foreign sophisticate. Perfect suits are paired with classy cardigans, (dare I say) snazzy boots and casual shoulder bags. The Mexican-inspired ponchos and hats are the spice of the collection! Exotic prints and gorgeous furs make me want to jump right on the runway!

Roberto Cavalli
Updated classics make me want to empty my bank account. I can almost feel the refined textures of furs, velvets and leathers right now. Again, the gorgeous leopard prints would look exquisite on any fashionable man. I still can't get over the great velvet midnight blue suit.

How slick! Dress a man in this and I'm there! I'm not too fond of the camo pieces, but the rest is brill. Neon colours and fab bleaches are perfect for fall. A perfect combination of masculine leathers, vintage denims and rad wools. The crisp patterns are great.

OH SHIT! Trashy Girls.

Is it just me, or are clothes becoming more and more trashy these days? I don't mean wear a boy-neck, floor length, long-sleeve dress, but come on! Honestly, there used to be a lot of cute stuff out there from cute stores, but now it's all see-through tops and track pants. It's stuff that I'd work out in, not wear to a dance.
And people pay waaaay too much money for things like fleece shorts, big, ugly hoodies and slinky track shorts! And they're promoting this slobbiness!
Have some decency, have some fashion sense.

That's just my opinion.
Peace aut,

I'm like a critic.

So last night I was watching Fashion Television, and I didn't really notice until after it was over that I had been scribbling down notes. I've decided to share my opinions on a few of the designers Spring and Fall 2008 collections.

I am ashamed to say that I have never really taken an interest in Rodarte until now. Kate and Laura Mulleavy are the sisters behind it all. They have no formal training but they can still create such wonderful, though-provoking looks. It's women like them that give us all hope.
Their Fall 2008 collection was fabulous. Deemed "Punk Rock Ballerina", the style was theatrically loose, yet the structure and detail was outstanding. Their designs are extremely inspired, which makes them even more desired. Fans include Agyness Deyn, Keira Knightly and Natalie Portman.

Mr. Kors is a busy man; designer and judge on the fabulous show Project Runway. Where does he find time to make such gorgeous collections? His Spring 2008 collection is more prefect than spring itself! Gorgeous pastels, hot solids, bold patterns and ditsy florals combined together are to die for this season. Subtle yet exciting accessories tie it all together; metallic skinny belts, floppy sunhats and "tennis" totes are definitely a must! This country-club collection is the base of my spring attire!

The eccentric style of Dior can never be forgotten, and the Spring 2008 collection is proof of that. All I can say is detail. Their bright, voluptuous pieces made me shiver with a lust that I have never felt towards Dior before. The outstanding hats earrings and makeup was enough for me to want to blow away my entire life savings on those delectable creations. Dior is ingenious, for lack of a better word.

Pucci is a whole different classification of it's own. Those boho inspired tunics and architectural prints are enough to make a woman mad. Gorgeous colour combinations of shimmery metallics, bold hues and heavenly pastels create an insane look for spring. Geometric print bags and bangles deserving of the heavyweight belt complete the look.

What can I say other than love. Marc always was and continues to be one of my favourite designers. Aside from the fact that he is fabulously gorgeous, his creations are genius. His Spring 2008 collection is fun, quirky and professional. The playful, lollipop pieces immediately draw attention and keep it! There's not much I can say other than Marc is fashion.

Tribal prints and safari colours give DVF's Spring 2008 Collection an exotic flair to a chic wardrobe. Bold and bright pieces give a fun feel to an already wonderful line.

Wow, a one hit wonder celebrity making a clothing line. Little to my surprise, it wasn't the next Lanvin or Chloe, though it wasn't complete crap. To me, it screamed Forever21. It was mediocre. They're nice looks for spring if you're a teenager in need of cute spring threads for school.

So that's my take on some of the new collections from a few designers.

Nobody Puts Baby In The Corner

Oh dear, oh me.
How I love Dirty Dancing.

I saw it on stage on Wednesday. It was FAB. Me and my lover had front row seats; I was practically laying on Johnny. I would definitely give it five stars. I highly recommend it; EVERYONE should experience this!
