NYFW | Buckler Spring/Summer 2011

NYFW | Buckler Spring/Summer 2011

Buckler brought out an outstanding Spring 2011 collection this past weekend at New York Fashion Week. The lineup takes much inspiration from the 1924 Olympics and the result is an edgy and modern lineup. There’s plenty to be sought from soft knits for casual environments to well-cut suiting when business calls. The versatility of the separates really makes them that much more desirable as you can transition from board to playground pretty seamlessly.

NYFW | Billy Reid Spring/Summer 2011 Presentation at MILK

NYFW | Billy Reid Spring/Summer 2011 Presentation at MILK

New York Fashion Week is upon us, with plenty of great presentations we’re looking forward to bringing you. We’re glad we get the opportunity to kick this off with our favorite Southerner. When you walked onto Billy Reid‘s presentation set at MILK last night, it felt as if you just landed in the designer’s hometown state of Alabama. The music was lively as were the dozens of pieces on display from Billy’s spring collection. The set was brought over piece by piece from a fine architectural shop in Alabama and the design was influenced by the photographic work of Clarence John Laughlin, widely considered to be one of the first American surrealist photographers.

Billy pointed out that much of his influence for the collection came from some real-life events and experiences taking place in Louisiana and neighboring areas. These ranged from the “euphoric shock” of the New Orleans Saints winning the Super Bowl to the, “Blood chilling fear of the oil spill in our beloved Gulf and marshes.” Each look from the collection is based on an incredibly unique and eccentric person from Billy’s memory.

Wood Wood Spring/Summer 2011 [Copenhagen Fashion Week]

Wood Wood is delivering some very cool gear for next spring, as we just got turned to the Denmark label’s runway show which took place at this year’s Copenhagen Fashion Week. There are definitely some standout pieces like a super lightweight parka with camo print and not the tacky played out kind we’ve seen pop up on pants and shorts and Lord knows what else. This reminds more of Desert Storm than it does Vietnam. Definitely a line worth checking out if you haven’t already.

Paris Fashion Week: Thom Browne Spring/Summer 2011

Paris Fashion Week: Thom Browne Spring/Summer 2011

There’s much to see enjoy when viewing Thom Browne‘s S/S 2011 collection. The creative mind has hit an all-time high as he looks to deliver sports jackets in an array of fabrics including seersucker and cotton madras, which happens to be the shirt fabric of choice at the present moment. The American designer stays close to his Americana values with saddle shoes and aviator shades and plenty of red, white and blue evenly spread throughout the collection.

Paris Fashion Week: Comme des Garcons Spring/Summer 2011

Paris Fashion Week: Comme des Garcons Spring/Summer 2011

For S/S 2011, skull-print coats and pants are coupled with slim-cut blazers, providing plenty of black and white ensembles from Comme des Garcons. Combat boots are looking good with the cropped pants, but there’s plenty more to appreciate from the Japanese label. If you’re not digging the skulls, worry not as there are plenty of well-cut suits and shirts without the extras.

Milan Fashion Week: Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring 2011

Milan Fashion Week: Woolrich Woolen Mills Spring 2011

We’re hearing this is designer Daiki Suzuki’s final collection for Woolrich Woolen Mills, which leaves us wondering where we’ll leave a footprint next. With the collection being made right here in the good ol’ US of A, there’s always much hype the brand has had to live up to in recent years. Suzuki has yet to drop the ball and after viewing the Spring 2011 collection, we’ll have to say he’s leaving the brand on a high note. The vintage-inspired gear is coupled with great attention to detail, which can be seen with the addition of several accents such as leather patches and hand-finished stitching.
