Quick Interrupt: Spring 2011 Menswear

I know fashion shows are extremely fun to watch, but I also know that I don't know enough about fashion or the design industry to really critique or review them in the same way I might an editorial or ad campaign. However, I do love and appreciate the fashion shows and I've recently been catching up on all of the Spring 2011 Menswear shows. Aside from John Galliano (whom I will talk about in my next post) my favorite show was Vivienne Westwood. I just loved the paper-bag waists and the mix between tight and loose pants was just really fun.

What I really love about fashion shows is seeing the progression from look to look. It's the same thing as looking at an editorial spread and getting to see how everything relates to each other because of a common theme or idea and how each look is an interpretation of that larger concept.

I loved that the clothes from the Trussardi 1911 show were all so wearable and so perfectly tailored. All of the looks were casual but still extremely put together.

My favorite thing about the Gucci show was this layered collar and buckle. It made me want to see more variations on this detail, but unfortunately it was the only big collar.
