Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
- Bottom/Vivienne Westwood
Long gone are the days where a simple pair of solid colored leggings garnered you with some major style points. That notoriety went out the door as soon as Wal-Mart began making Hannah Montana tights. Now, the anty has officially been up'd. What's going to be next in the world of the fun leg accessory? Layering of course. Designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Chanel and Alexander McQueen took a cue from Marc Jacobs Fall 2008 show and decided that the notion of layering anything and everything seemed like an appealing idea. So, this fall, how will you layer a legging? Well, with socks or leg warmers of course. Scrunch, cut, pull and tuck 'til your leg looks like a million bucks. You can still include your beloved American Apparel neon tights (because nobody should have to give those up), only this autumn, add a wool sock or scrunched knee high to the mix, creating a more in depth look. Oh, and it creates more warmth, which I'm pretty sure was the original reason for leggings in the first place. Score!
Chanel will be unveiling its newest No. 5 commercial shortly, so I thought until we see the new one, I would post some older ones from past times. There basically miniature films all their own-a work of art inspired by fashion, used by the medium of media. I love them.
- Belted coats and tees. You know I'm a fan of show that encourages this usually feminine trait.
- Croc bags and coats. Fabulous duffel's and overcoats in rich black croc were shown-displaying extreme taste and elegance.
- Suspenders. While this is not really an abstract piece, it usually doesn't show up as much as I would like.
- Slim fits in simple cuts. No pretentious overly ambitious odd tailoring or details-just simple, chic, not to mention oh so slim silhouettes that are perfect for men folk like me.
Pink Suits. Why not? This needs no explanation.
Oh, it's like Heaven, watching all these amazing accesories and clothes being talked about by Jacobs and Madge. Ahhh.
