Christian Lacroix

Christian Lacroix never fails me, no matter how ridiculous or unusual his designs are. Yes, of course his Spring 2008 Couture line was amazing, breath-taking, and flat out fabulous, but one specific thing that caught my eye were his tights he incorporated throughout the line. He used different shades of blues, pinks, yellows, greens, depending on the whole outfit, and created them to fade from the color, starting at the feet, and then into white, up the thighs. They're amazing and I definitely want a pair in each color.

So, new film out with some of our favorite musicians starring, directing and composing the film score as well. Quentin Dupieux, also known as Mr. Oizo, directed this movie about teenagers in the future who get plastic surgery to fit in. Uhhhh... so while I haven't seen the movie (and its already received terrible reviews) the talent outside of this film is great. From previews, it reminds me a little bit of A Clockwork Orange, with the outfits, gangs, drinking milk, beating people up. Who cares! Kavinsky and SebastiAn are in it, 'nuff said.

The standout track from the film is "Chivers as Female" by Oizo, SebastiAn, and Sebastien Tellier (0f Air). Watch it, don't watch it, but DO listen to this:

A Different Take on Men's Trousers

There has been a low-key phenomenon within the fashion industry and some street walkers who has embraced this idea of an "over-sized" trouser. Pleated, tapered, or just all around baggy, designers like Dior Homme, Vivienne Westwood, Bottega Veneta, Belstaff, Salvatore Ferragamo and few others have embraced this new art of "over-sized" men's trousers. Dior has taken full force of a new way of manipulating pleated dress pants by making them bulge out and come back in at the ankle.

For those of you who wants to be a part of this sensation but wants to take it down a notch, Ferragamo's "over-sized" trousers are well proportioned with less volume and is more casual, but still classy. I have only seen a few men in public wearing "over-sized" trousers and as long you can work it and pair it with a great loafers or dress-shoes, it looks amazing. Seeing a man wearing a pair on the streets with a fitted cardigan with loafers is definitely a feast for the eyes.
Its different, modern, and unique, with a classic perception.
