ACNE Spring / Summer 2012 menswear runway video. Enjoy the slouchy, laid back take on classics and the colorful footwear. Did someone say gladiator sandals?!
Would I call French contemporary brand Surface to Air a cult favorite? After looking at the Spring / Summer 2012 menswear collection, I would say that it definitely it has a cult-like following...from me! The collection takes its inspiration from the Atlantic Ocean, sailing, surfing, and enjoying the trans-Atlantic offerings. Lots of covetable pieces...kind of drooling over the leather jacket with the contrast inset panel.
3.1 Phillip Lim Spring / Summer 2012 menswear collection takes the idea of ombre to a new level. I've always had a very bias opinion (in a bad way) towards the ombre effect but that's probably because when I was in design school, I did it so much. But, this collection from Phillip Lim reminded me why I once liked the treatment....so many years ago. I love the fresh and interesting perspective Lim takes here and offers an insanely hip and wearable collection. Sporty, cool, quirky, and edgy - Love it.
MIHARAYASUHIRO is one of my favorites and the Spring/Summer 2012 collection is no exception. Fabric mixing, great layering, and quirky patterns really spice up the collection. There's just something so easy and cool about it. Also, the use of the WISH YOU WERE HERE graphic is brilliant.
