fall menswear, runway: gianfranco ferré

the gianfranco ferré menswear collection is my most favorite of the season, thus far. plaids, leather & fur are all creatively conceptualized for the brands FW10 collection & though edge is seen, many traditional elements give the set added strength. i love the belted waist looks & the grey coats are death. though black & white designs have been seen a million times before, the ferré label seemingly gives the palette a rebirth. completely chic, the collection is every aspect of chic imaginable.

fall menswear, runway: frankie morello

the frankie morello menswear collection plays the field this fall; giving us dope outfit pieces & rockstar styling. images of ski-masked faces are mixed with leather coats & down vests. the collection is laced with red detailing & i love the entire direction the label chose to take. the hidden plaids are well balanced with the navy designs, plus the shot of army green. extremely commercial, the direction does slightly remind me of DSQUARED2 but in a more controlled color palette. i love collections that produces a lot of pieces as runway looks, allowing the looks presented to be broken up into a million pieces through editorial & sick styling. a concept that can be easily understood, the tailoring of the collection is done well. dope collection.

fall menswear, runway: neil barrett

minimalistically chic, the neil barrett FW10 collection boasts black, white & gray designs. the different variations are interesting, in that they allow you to take a closer look at the collection details. circular pins are seen on coats & sweaters alike, while leather underlines the collections lapel’s. never one to go for distracting colors & more favorable for undeniable design, i love the two tone blazer in both black & charcoal. the leather forearm pieces are dope as well. one very chic mens collection.

fall menswear, runway: vivienne westwood man

the menswear collection from vivienne westwood presents outstanding designs from the dame herself. in this crazed vision of a collection, we see the best models in the game looking thrown together in everything from plaid to pin striped suits. though it may be a little difficult to understand the concept of the westwood label, i find it more easy to swallow when considering each item piece by piece. i don’t think anyone would have the nerve to rock a head to toe westwood look. that said, i love the blazer with matching pins on the lapel & the black cardigan with red detailed knit-print; as well as the gold pant & the option taken to have two men walk the runway hand in hand. regardless of how out of control the direction is, vivienne westwood continues to break boundaries & defy odds in fashion each season, as displayed in this collection.

fall menswear, runway: salvatore ferragamo

the ferragamo fall collection gives us dark tones & luxurious textiles. i love, love, love the darker take on green as well as the coats. the large, exaggerated scarves bring a stronger focus on the fall season & a wide range of color choices is seen throughout the collection. seen on the runway during the show were some of our own favorites; garrett neff, matthias lauridsen & nils butler. love the collection & their classic menswear pieces. the collection is on-point as ever, piece by piece & with each look as a whole. im very excited to see where ferragamo will take this collection on the campaign front. we shall see.

fall menswear, runway: jil sander

the jil sander menswear collection presented clean lines for the fall season. within the sander signature, clean lines are expected as is the collections black, white & neutral palette. grey makes a soft statement in the collection as well as we see small forms of experimentation with fabric textile placement. for me, winter is all about the coats & the collection puts its bid in for some of the season’s best. a completely chic set & most of what we see for this collection is faultlessly clean.
