Oh Boy

Clearly, I’ve been wasting my time all these years by looking over women’s couture collections. The real action very obviously lies in menswear.

First up at the recently concluded Milan Fashion Week, for example, is what Calvin Klein thinks the well-dressed man will wear next year. Don’t worry if you don’t have that kind of definition in the midriff area. You can air your paunch.

Then there’s the Emporio Armani collection. What can I say but woo-hoo? Their head designer obviously went to a lot of exciting parties this year. You gotta respect a man who dreams up a show based on Nazis in leggings and S&M.

Meanwhile Dolce and Gabbana just randomly threw in a few men in their skivvies. As did Bottega Veneta. I honestly had no idea they showcased speedos on runways. I mean – it’s a speedo! How far can you tweak it? Oh wait…

And then there were a bunch of other folks, including Versace with an androgynous-but-not-in-a-good-way lineup of models who all looked anorexic. Donatella should have called up Vivienne Westwood for tips.

In related news, I’m still a philistine but a happy one today!

    The minute your site loaded, I went, ‘Oh God’. I am still saying that.
    Wonder how this would be described in Bertie’s “What the well-dressed man is wearing.”

    I know what I am getting for Diwali this year. Slide: How you doing? in a bright red. That will hold the beer belly right in place.Pardon my ignorance about fashion – but do even the perfect looking models actually ever wear these and you know …go outdoors ? Have always wondered.

    LOL’d instantly! As for “..speedos on runways”, sorry, but thanks to all the “unveiling of new Terminal B” buzz in my backyard this week, the only “runway” I can think of is the one that spiffy Southwest and AA flights take off from, every two seconds or so! 😀

    (Glad to see the aiport that’s been perpetually pinned down by construction crews finally getting ready to spread its wings though — about time.)

    PS: Do I LOVE this “man is the new woman” meme or what?! 😛

    Can’t think of many Indian men who’d be able to bare their mid-riffs. 🙂

    Are we sure it wasn’t “Gay Fashion Week?” (Or is that something of a contradiction in terms?) Because honestly the only guys I know who would be willing to wear that stuff–at all, ever–would be the gay ones. With the possible exceptions of the blue-and-white plaid shirt and sharks’ teeth necklace.

    @ Ritika – heh heh. More like what the well dressed man is NOT wearing.

    @ Leb – what, the speedos? OH HONEY. Meet Giorgio Armani. And, by way of compensation, Marc Jacobs. No, no, don’t thank me!

    @ Meme’stW – congratulations! And yes, apparently in the year 2011, every man will be mainlining estrogen.

    @ Banno – and yet so many lift their banyans and DO!

    @ Ajnabi – it was apparently Gay Nazi fashion week! “Club dancer from the 80s” was apparently the theme according to NY Mag. 😀 And the other theme, according to me, was “douche”. My god, you could smell the overpowering whiff of Axe off those photos.

    but isnt the midriff rather paunch baring shirts in fashion for a long time now? but the skirt top would look very good on woman, thought looked cute on the first model.
