Loving all the sheerness at Dior Homme. The hipster boys were loving a sheer tank in Summer 2009, but this is a full blown trend. I have seen some light, drape-y, sheer EVERYWHERE. Midway through my appointment with the delovely Dylan at Dior, I remembered that I needed to pull pieces for our front of book style page "Live the Life." A little teaser: our December/January issue's style icon may or may not be Freddie Mercury. And I think this Dior Homme archive number could really do the trick. She is a whopping $13,000 and sooo heavy!!!
Z Zegna for Spring/Summer is all about a street dandy. The black and white shoes are so full-on. A bit costume-y, but I cannot wait to get them in a shoot! And the woven top hats are clearly drawing inspiration from the Mad Hatter and I adore Alice in Wonderland style references.
This watermelon color cashmere, cotton, silk pique blazer is also delicious.
Back at the office and my Freddie Mercury pieces are starting to arrive. First knockout, drop dead, beyond: an out-of-this-world leather motorcycle jacket from Roberto Cavalli with candy-colored embellishments. I just had to give her a whirl in the fashion closet.
The heavenly Melissa Duren at HL Group sent me the TOMS lace-up shoes for Fall 2009 in a waxed canvas. They are more multiseason appropriate and so cute with socks. I just couldn't wait, I had to put them on stat.
