On Men.

Alber Elbaz at Lanvin made me pretty damn happy when I saw the Spring 08 Menswear collection, I'm loving the layered grey tones and the different shapes work so well, from the slouchy jackets and wider-cut trousers, to the more fitted blazers and the skinnier trousers tucked into the socks. I'm especially in love with bow-ties at the moment.

Costume National's Ennio Capasa made good for his Spring 08 Menswear collection. Neutral colours, trenches, belted jackets, and a little bit Hedi Slimane. However, I was left more than a little bit cold by the deep v-neck knits and what I can only describe as a man-turban. Never ever to be worn off the runway boys, especially when even the model can't pull it off. Leave it to Jafar.

Dior Homme - Kris Van Assche's debut. Can anyone really explain these trousers?...Or the hideous lapels on the jackets? I wasn't bowled over, but I was surprised. Good thing, bad thing? Only time will tell.

And courtesy of The Sartorialist, proving that even non-models can dress well. My favourite young man of recent Sart pictures.
