Proenza Schouler...pre-fall 2011!

I don't like to speak about pre-collections because I believe that they are more a "commercial necessity" than one of fashion or people. However, some of these collections are cool and beautiful by the fashion point of view.
It's easy to say that Proenza Schouler is beautiful (maybe the most appreciated brand of this period...) but if you look with attention the collection you'd understand some things. The asimmetrical hem, the special necks of the cardigans and teh shapes. The patterns are colorfull and really new not the simply flower prints or color-blocking...These prints looks inspired by modern art and futuristic ideas.  The main themes of the collection are the asimmetry, the patterns and the men elements mixed with feminine ones.  The bags are the new PS models with the unqiue lock and  the pants are "Marni style" (for shapes) that should be nice on catwalk but could be not so beautiful on the streets...In the end, I love the complete collection!

Summary of men shows:
  • Alexander McQueen:A collection that doesn't express the style of the british designer and his main features. So I don't like it!
  • Dsquared: Nothing really special...
  • Ermanno Scervino: Great down jackets and use of wool, I love Scervino's collections!
  • Etro: My favourite menswear collection for the paisley prints (caracteristic of Etro), for the wodnerful nuances of browns, for the leathers kinds used and so on!! You must see Etro's show!
  • Gucci: Amazing coats and jacket, especially for the use of materials: Frida is doing a wonderful work in the last collection of Gucci.
  • Iceberg: Fresh and adult collection, that look more right for spring than winter...but gorgeus!
  • Jil Sander: The trend of this spring goes on with fluo color mixed with light ones...An awesome, simple, show!!
  • John Richmond: Big use of fur coats (very volgar in those versions...) and the patetic "Richmond style" by which everyone is bored.
  • Marni: Boring, boring, boring, boring, boring...unwearable! These are the words that I think every time I see a Marni men show...
  • Marc Jacobs: Classic "jacobs" men revamped by new accessories.
  • Moncler: Innovation about jackets and accessories, expecially by the mix of different materials.
  • Moschino: A strange shos full of casual and sport elements that I think are more the demonstration of a lack of creativity than innovation.
  • Versace: Classic Versace show with some new things such as the "heavy" sweaters...
