A not-so-subtle, but very warmly welcomed, men-inspired line shows clean-cut lines, minimalistic colors, and simple pairings. A neat collection that does not have a lot of wows, frills or showstoppers, but a collection full of pieces perfect for long term wears and life long investment pieces.
With a clear 90s grunge inspiration, Titania Inglis brings out our inner rebels through cut-outs, angles, sheer fabrics and plaid flannel galore. While not an exact replica of 90s fashion (thankfully), the refined and updated look and feel is seemingly perfect for the upcoming year. Not too grungy, punky or old school, the line is rather refreshing and has us wishing the 90s looked more like this.
Perfectly paired with Doc Martens combat boots, this collection has us all feeling very nostalgic for the good ol’ 90s, Spice Girls, and a Friends marathon.
With a focus on Parisian sophistication, the Billy Reid RTW Fall 2012 line is polished, tailored and effortless. Gone were the days of outdoorsy manly-men and in with the men of the future: the no-fuss, well-dressed generation. The evident European inspiration did not deviate from the Americana style of the designer but, instead, added to the posh tone of the collection.
The Southwest comes to life through Gretchen Jones’ desert-inspired collection. Full of darkness, with spurts of life and hope, the inspiration behind the collection is literary rather than visual. A heavy dose of turquoise, burnt orange and black, the earthy tones only add to the story telling. With gems and stones aplenty, every detail, down to the nails that resembled turquoise stones, were planned out with great execution. The collection has a very native feel that will have you wondering where the cactuses are.
