Being raised in a mountainous environment for most of my youth, I know a thing or two about hunting and exploration of the outdoors. But the adventurer’s that Phillip Lim created for the Fall 2010 Men’s Collection was that of complete coolness and urban sophistication. No duck boots or plaid wool overall here, no no, this was all about fit, cut, and some serious boots and leather accessories. Majority of the coats were belted and were on track with this seasons military trend. The collection boasts some serious pieces that are awesome for Fall 2010. Here are my favorites courtesy of Fashionising.

The fresh futuristic sounds of new comer Janelle Monae has taken the world by storm. Her voice, charisma and stage presence has allowed her to be our Daily Honoree today. The unique voice and fashion sense that she epitomizes has intrigued me since I first listened to her album Metropolis. She plays on this 1950′s style of dressing which I find totally refreshing, the vibe sets off this coy 1950′s school girl complete with saddle shoes, cropped pants, white bib tux front shirts and black bow ties are all adorned, almost giving off an androgynous mystic. Her style is such a burst of futuristic and classic energy, mixing elements of funk, soul and blues, you cannot help but be enthralled when watching her perform live. “I’m an alien from outer space” declares the Kansas City native, and her unique sound and style is something we all would gladly be abducted by.

The summer is a time when you really don’t want to wear anything dark, heavy, or sweat causing. I on the other hand hate summer, and have yet to find a medium in how I dress. I believe the key to surviving the hot summer months is thinking “Light”, that is relevant to both color and material selections. The Swedish label, ODEUR Men’s Spring 2010 Collection is entitled “light” and has some of the coolest (literally) hooded and extra big shirts that drape away from the body to allow for movement and air to circulate. The use of light cottons is so great for the sweltering months ahead, and I really think I will take some pointers from this collection and trickle them into my own wardrobe for summer. Of course I don’t have the chest or arms of our straping European model here (yet) but this collection definitely fits right up my alley for this summer. Enjoy courtesy of Must
