Welcome to part 2 of our Fashion Week series. As mentioned in part 1, us folks at ESM are insanely broke and did not have any funds to actually go to New York to see all of this fashion firsthand, so we had to go through articles and images on GQ.com to see what we liked and we would actually purchase for ourselves.
We left off at the B’s, so we still have quite a ways to go…
Italo Zucchelli did a killer job for Calvin Klein. There were quite a few pieces and ensembles I wouldn’t mind owning. The style was clean, simple and a clear homage to the 90’s – and the great part? None of the models looked homeless.
Although Calvin Klein still had some crazy designs that you probably couldn’t wear on the street without getting beat up, there were some pieces that looked good and (for me at least) had a lot of street cred.
If you want to see the entire collection, go to the main Calvin Klein page on GQ.com.
Canali also had a very classy, high end, monochromatic, The Professional meets Italian royalty feel to their collection. I like the leather gloves – no chance of leaving fingerprints on your victim.
In a sea of crazy winter workwear/skiwear/shit you would never wear in reality unless you were in Alaska-wear from D&G, there were a few suits and tuxes that caugh our eye:
Check out this sick tux (top) with the crazy shoes.
Dolce & Gabbana also had a few pieces that were noteworthy among the sea of rock quarry worker fashion:
Although most of the Dunhill collection was pretty ho-hum (despite the socks over the pants look), this tux looked like a winner:
I’m a big proponent for sportswear to only be designed and developed by people who actually do sports, so half of the Emporio Armani collection was out for me. I did find 2 suits that I liked and thought would be good to have:
I’ve always been a fan of Ermenegildo Zegna, even if I can’t pronounce his first name. The main images in the collection didn’t catch my eye, but the gray suits at the end of the series looked pretty dope:
Oh man, I think I am just realizing what I got myself into for this whole fashion week series. Hopefully, the rest of the collections for Fall 2010 suck and this whole thing will end with part 3.
