Truman Says

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Having just ended the spring 2012 showings, it's easy to be on a fashion high. The best and the brightest have all shown the most opulent, extravagant tricks up their sleeves in hopes of illiciting the burning desire to take out a second mortgage to purchase their latest and greatest offerings. Feathers and leathers mixed with embroideries and beadings have strut the catwalks of New York, London, Milan, and Paris, and now that it's over, buyers are scurrying to their offices to figure out what their customer will want come spring.

Oh, Marc Jacobs. There's no denying that the man has the Midas Touch -- everything he does is instantly desirable and newsworthy. He's regarded as one of the most intelligent designers currently working, has a cadré of celebrity fans, and you, dear readers, just recently voted him one of the best dressed gay men, kilts and all. In addition to his keen eye for design, the man is a master of public relations.

Another update from our round of spring previews. This one is from the always reliable, and incredibly stylish boys at Shipley & Halmos. While some designers like to use their medium to indulge in the most eccentric of sensibilities (we've all seen a runway show and had that That's cool and all but who the hell is ever going to wear that? moment), this duo is all about clothing you want to live your life in -- every single day.

More from today's showroom visits. This time for the Burkman Bros -- who, as we mentioned, just launched ecommerce. Good thing, too, because we have a feeling people are going to be going bananas over their very tropical spring collection. Inspired by their Hawaiian jaunt, the brothers wanted to focus less on beach-lounging and more on active island life.

Now that the men's spring shows are finito, now comes the wonderful world of re-sees. For those of you who may not know, it's not enough to see the show live and in person and have access to each look on a reference website like, one also has to go out to press offices and peek at them in up close. That may seem redundent, but its actually more helpful than one would think. It's hard to see all the wonderious details -- and for menswear, its all about the details -- as the outfits go whizzing by.

When it comes to the international string of Fashion Weeks, Paris is recognized for its string of heavy-hitters. Legendary labels like Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Givenchy, and Dior all show there -- to name only a few. In addition to the usual hubbub a new name has piqued the interest of the fashion tribes: Kanye West.

As US Weekly likes to remind us, celebrities are just like us. They pump gas, gorge on fast food, pick up their dry cleaning, and partake in a plethora of other mundane, unglamorous chores. One public figure who you'd never really imagine running  these sorts of errands, though, is the President or the First Lady. It's not because they'd think its beneath them...its just that they seem too busy, you know, running the country and all that jazz.

We've always adored how Tom Ford's perfumes and colognes smelled....never in a million years could we have guessed their origins.....
