Milan & Paris SS09 Prologue.

Tuesday, 17 June 2008


It’s June and half the year has passed by before our eyes. The real vultures out there aren’t opening their wallets and are patiently awaiting the summer sale to pick up whatever unwanted clothes left in the stores. This weekend is going to be entertaining for anyone with zero plans and have planned on spending the weekend at home watching soccer and playing solitaire on their PC. Men’s SS09 is gearing up and will commence this Saturday. The questions are many, will Alexander McQueen manage to repeat his divine SS07 collection, will Van Assche stun us with a DH collection made up of outfit in more colors than black and white?? Most importantly, will Hermes and LV finally give us something that doesn’t make us yawn??? Drop a line in the comment is you have any requests regarding which designer collection you would like reviewed.

Michael: Tickets are not available for purchase and if you want one, you will have to contact the PR firm representing the respective designer.

What an appropriate picture! Did you watch the France v Italy match yesterday? Though Italy won, Paris men's S/S 09 will still be better than Milan as usual...

I'm just really looking forward to Prada. I wonder what she'll do to redeem herself from last season's disaster. I think other menswear brands just keep recycling the same ideas so I won't be really blown away per se....

-lanvin3000: Prada AW08 was quite horrific but their Resport 2009 is very appealing, so hopefully SS09 will be in line with same theme.

But you're right, many houses just recycle previous collection, especially Burberry Prorsum.
