Thou Shalt Covet: Dior Accessories
By Seth Plattner
Though some would say it's far too early to be thinking about Spring fashion, here at Out we are always looking for something(s) new to obsess over and we've found plenty in the Spring/Summer 2009 Dior accessories look book we just received.
These days men's jewelry can be somewhat overdone, especially when all we're looking for is a tasteful representation of our stylish, yet simplistic queer selves. So we were delighted to find this Dior brass and lacquer necklace. It's reminiscent of a dog tag, which, while hot in our military fantasies, doesn't quite make the same refined statement as the updated shape and design of the Dior offering.
Also among the pages of Dior delicacies were these retro-inspired calf-skin belts:
The geometric buckles are eye-catching enough for queer taste, but throw on the hot pink variety and it's 'mo fab, 'mo fun. Pair with these white calfskin derby shoes and the '80s-glam look you've fashioned might just be too hot to handle. Winter hasn't even arrived but with offerings like these, Dior already has us X-ing off the days on our calendars until the first day of spring (shopping).
