Louis Vuitton, dear lord, those coats, I think I could die. They are for want of a better word warmandcosyandallthingsgreat. Okay so more like seven words, but I tried.
And the jumpers... Wouldn't need a man to keep me warm at night, that's all I'm saying. The muted colour tones were perfectly autumnal, and the coloured leather - right on trend. Oh and how could I forget, the "Hugh Hefner" inspired smoking jackets. Okay probably not the idea behind the concept but still, that's all I am seeing. Having said this the rich colour palette and simple yet detailed print is quite appealing in a weird way, so yes you get a stamp of approval from me Vuitton.
Carven, honestly, I've always been quite on the fence as it were. There is no doubt I am a fan of their suits, I mean, a man in a suit come on. I just don't like the "short trouser". Maybe it's just because it's snowing out and it's a ridiculous notion to be outside in shorts (unless you are a postman) in these weather conditions. I don't know but I am not a fan. What I am a fan of though are the pops of collar, damn I mean colour.
Stepping into a little more colourful portrayal of autumn winter, Prada presented a more casual collection, for which I love. Although of course their overcoats won't necessarily keep you as warm as the Louis Vuitton's, the laid back approach is refreshing if nothing else. Again I love the subtle hints of colour and the mix-match get together's of the suits within the collection.
Oh and the coloured leather pieces are lovely.
My only qualms are maybe the Prada coats are a little too 60s. And for crying out loud, there is no need for animal print, Louis Vuitton this is aimed at you, with this and you Carven for your almost attempt at animal print with this and this.
A very brief and probably the least technically apt summary of just three of the recent menswear shows, but there all the same. What are you favourite collections of late?
