Truman Says

Out Hot Lister Nicola Formichetti debuted his menswear collection for Thierry Mugler to a soundtrack from Gaga herself. Kudos.

Oh, Opening Ceremony. How do you do it? You get the two hottest models in town for your look book (model of the moment Lindsey Wixom and hottie Paolo Anchisi) to model their latest downtown cool offerings, but to add icing to the cake is the fact that photographer Terry Richardson shot it. The spring collection is a little more toned down than their usual quirky offerings, instead focusing on nautical knits, ikat prints and a purple suit (OK, so they may not have toned down everything).

Burberry, while consistently desirable, is so self-referential that its rare to see a show that raises an eyebrow. Let's admit it, while Christopher Bailey is an incredibly talented designer and so thoroughly understands how to make a heritage brand relevant to young people, most of his collections are based on the iconic Burberry trench. Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. But the elements must have been on Bailey's mind for fall, as there was hardly a traditional trench in site.

Neil Barrett has a longstanding reputation in the fashion industry. He's worked with everyone from Prada to Gucci before launching his eponymous label. This season he's taken a decidedly oppositional stand with color juxtaposing crisp, clean winter whites with his signature rumpled leathers.

Last season, Marni really blew our socks off. The subtle, color-blocking was subtle, masculine, wearable and versatile. The perfect example of how making a statement does not mean being loud and brash. Designer Consuelo Castiglioni continued her theme of functional, covetable clothing, this time in with a somber palette.

Hey! Have you not heard? The fashion flock has migrated to Milan to see what all the cool kids will be wearing come fall 2011. Check out our extensive slideshows here. It's a pop-culture mash up of Jersey Shore-esque commercialism. Everything from Coca-cola to Mickey Mouse makes it into the collection that pulls heavily from, and subversively nods to, suburban streetwear.

Men, for the most part, leave opulent sartorial superfluity for the ladies. Sparkles and embellishments are generally avoided, even in the gay community. But Swarovski is asking to reconsider the flickering, shining excesses of fashion for their latest iteration for Swarovski Elements. After all, while utility and practicality may be the foundation of fashion, that is in no way an excuse to deprive yourself of the more ornamental joys of dress.

Those Muppet kids have really done well for themselves. They've already tread the boards of Broadway, thwarted a potentially deadly diamond heist and traveled to the final frontier.
