BACK after a short break, with a fresh set of eyes going through many runway shows, and making sure I don’t pick out any boring pieces. It’s all about the wearable fashion. We love seeing the conceptual fashion, but what we love to do is actually be able to wear what we see on the runway with our own personal twist.
Belstaff Fall/Winter 2014/15
We usually love everything Belstaff has to offer so it was actually harder to choose only two rather than wanting to rock every damn thing they offer. We have a massive infatuation with the leather (possibly waxed cotton) pants with cargo pockets to hold all of the girls numbers you’ll be gathering because you’ll look like a rock star/biker/han solo. Which is a pretty unattainable combination in any other kinds of pants.
Again, like the last look, this look is absolutely brilliant, classic and stylish at the same time. Rich brown belted leather jacket is killer and mixed with the dark cargo pants and turtleneck you will have a look your friends will have a hard time 1-upping.
Valentino Fall/Winter 2014/15
Valentino has always been consistent with creating “new” classic pieces. This camel top coat is a really killer piece with dark green neck detail that means you can wear this as a cape which only real fashionisto’s could pull off previously. Thank you Valentino.
On the subject of coats, check out this, very well put together, patterned top coat.
One HUGE reason we love Valentino is that they refuse to let camouflage die! It’s pretty impressive to see almost every piece of this look covered in camo, but still doesn’t feel overwhelming. Or maybe that’s just us. Did we mention we love camo?!
3.1 Phillip Lim Fall/Winter 2014/15
Leather on leather. End of story. NEXT!
Beautiful layering here with a more clean cut look that you may be able to get away with wearing to work. The denim adds the dark texture that makes this look a win is every aspect. Darks on darks!
Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2014/15
We weren’t massively into this look but the leather top coat is definitely something to lust over. What really caught our eye from AW was the generous amount of break that wen’t all the way up to the knee. Certainly a different angle from what we are used to seeing on recent runways, the no-break/sock flashing pants.
Balmain Fall/Winter 2014/15
Balmain is easily one of our all time favorite menswear brands. Here we have a healthy serving of olives and greens with a military influence from top to bottom. We love that Balmain brought back the cargo pockets and also refuses to kill off camouflage . Awesome layering, perfect fit, and a great contrast with the leopard print chelsea boots.
MORE OLIVE GREEN. Of course, we are putting aside a piggy bank only for Balmain garments. This coat hits on every single level.
OF COURSE we had to point out the camo biker jacket with MASSIVE patches to make this possibly the most bad ass jacket ever created. Prepare to have many “war stories” ready for the ladies. The olive green leather pants puts this look over the freakin top. Did we mention we love Balmain?
Berluti Fall/Winter 2014/15
Leave it up to Berluti to created the very masculine color palette of browns and maroons. This adds at least ten years of maturity, and the jacket will be the subject of all conversation. Dress smart.
I have to be honest here, I’m not quite sure what attracts us to this particular 3-piece suit. It certainly gives new life and meaning to the pinstripe suit, with a great slim fit, vest and casual finish with the un-buttoned shirt. We are beginning to see why we like this so much.
Dior Homme Fall/Winter 2014/15
We are absolute suckers for layered denim, which here gives such a unique pop to an otherwise bland suit.
Again, Dior gives us no choice but to drool over the layered denim vest underneath a beautiful shearling bomber. This is for the friday night, stepping from the office, onto a motorcycle, and joining your friends for a long awaited weekend ride.
Thanks for reading.
Part 5 coming soon…
