New York Fashion Week: First up, Second season for Duckie Brown | Spring/ Summer 2015

You know that I am a big Duckie Brown Fan. I have a "spotlight on" post about their menswear, which is gorgeous.  How can you not love a design team that wants to put men in pearls ...

I recently had a moment of clarity.  i realized i've been bending over backwards avoiding a pain and a fear

Will fashion change the world this season?

New York Fashion Week starts today and I am excited.  It should be interesting.
The world is in shades of turmoil, distress, cultural breakdown, ruin and surprisingly CHANGE.  Let's face it, change cannot happen without a painful transition. People hate change.  And when it happens it feels like our worse enemy has come calling.  And we, being visceral creatures of habit, have always reflected upon the woes of change through art, music and fashion.

my all time favorite trend: the rainbow

i need to tell you something.  fashion is going dark.  and when it goes, i'm going with it.  i've already made the commitment.  but for you color addicts this is not the end.  in an effort to ease you into the darkness designers played god and had a little fun. 
 
****the rainbow**** 
 
funny, this feels fresh and new.  it isn't just colors and it isn't just color blocking it actually looks and feels like a rainbow.  the ones who did it well were chanel, jo no fui, givenchy, and fausto puglisi.

KTZ: FROM KITSCH TO COOKIE - The Charlie's Angels Effect

I might be wrong and I wouldn't admit it if it were true, it's just not my style, but I must speak about the KTZ Menswear Collection for Spring/ Summer 2015.   Now you know I've been a fan for a while.   More than one post in fashionwhoreny has been devoted to singing their praises. 

But this season something feels off.  It's like a Charlie's Angels sequel.  The first movie was AWESOME, totally unbelievable but amazing for it's Kitsch.  The second movie was cute but it was more of the same and less than before.  And that is what happened for me with KTZ this season.

Abandoned by Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane Diary (February 2014)

I'm having this moment of, "where is Hedi Slimane's Diary when I need it?" 

I interviewed Monica Menez: The future of Fashion Film

I love being right.  It gives me a tingle deep in the pit of my stomach.  Like good foreplay.  When I read little tidbits from industry powerhouses about things I already saw coming I get a cheshire grin on my face.  :)

And this is another one of those things I know I'm right about.  That feeling is there spreading ... like the best foreplay.  And here it is; I just interviewed the Future of Fashion Film:  and her name is Monica Menez
