How annoying. Right when I really need to be completely focused on schoolwork, the F/W 2006 menswear collections are being shown, starting with Milan Men’s Fashion Week.
Purple is the new black. Camel is a close second. Otherwise the dusky pallette of the mid 90s is coming back. (The colors inspired by smoke and shadow, glass and steel that Janine and I called “contemporary” at the time.)
I was right about large lapels. Next fall we’ll see them in fur. Maybe even on cropped jackets.
Skinny ties and loosely fitted pants continue their revival. You won’t see me in any of the newly volumous pleated pants, of course.
Subtle military-officer accents are everywhere. Think 19th century Prussian cavalry or 1930s air force.
The vest is definitely back.
Raf Simons for Jil Sander votes for the dropped shoulder. I vote no.
I was right about the large carryall.
Back to International Law.
