Menswear Spring 2012
Call me bias, but while reviewing the men's spring 2012 collections, I only decided to look at collections which for some reason I thought I would look good in. The most masculine collections would still have me picturing myself in these outfits, setting aside my summer daisy dress for a pair of Mugler bedazzled leggings, and have me completely copying the typical school boy outfit (short shorts and a crisp collared shirt) also showcased by Mugler-timeless I guess.
Excuse me if I'm wrong, but the Men's shows set the tone-foreshadowing-what's to come in the future for the women's spring collection. When picking the select few collections to review; the 2 designers I didn't know, the 5 big ones I do know, and 2 of my favorite designers-I of course had to check out the Balmain collection considering the remarkable impact they had this spring with the studded burnt leather, that made it okay to be a bad ass American.
A classic timeless brand was also added to must see list, Gucci brings back the trench in a season that is not use to the long red jacket, which is definitely a statement piece setting itself aside from the many neutrals of the collection. This spring the simplistic styled guys in Gucci look just as fashionable as the exotic taste a guy must have to wear Mugler.
