Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2011 Collection: Italiano Vintage Luxe

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on July 11, 2010 by James Field

The collection that Salvatore Ferragamo’s newly appointed Creative Director, Massimiliano Giornetti sent down the runway for Spring 2011 was a complete  throwback to classic yester year. This does seem to be the trend this season, take note of the 1940’s sharply tailored Dunhill Spring 2011 Collection. But the Ferragamo man this season was completely care-free and obviously on an extended holiday.The collection was completed with full cut trousers, double-breasted blazers, and silk and cotton wovens all done in a perfectly hued color palette of soft shades of cream, navy, and brown. The look was a mix of modern tailoring with 1920’s Italian luxury styling, can’t you  just picture these looks being worn by an Italian movie star in Venice on vacation? It was impeccable in my opinion, and was a refreshing departure from the increasingly growing cliché trend of slim cut and cropped trousers.  And also may I point out the shoes? #Perfection!

Dunhill Spring 2011 Collection: 1940’s Revival

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on July 5, 2010 by James Field

The entire summer I have been patiently awaiting the Mens Spring 2011 Collections to showcase from Europe. My excitement bubbled and finally peak when I laid eyes on the Dunhill Spring 2011 Collection from Paris via GQ.com

It was a blend of exquisite tailoring with air of 1940’s “Mad Men” inspired styling. It is very rare that the men’s collections capture my interest to a point of obsession, and this show definitely achieved that reaction. Some of my favorite new styles were the double-breasted blazer, a classic British sport coat, cropped and reduced to two buttons, along with the flat front cropped trousers. The overall vision of the show read “Gentleman” to my eyes, and in such creating a sense of throwback glamour of the old Hollywood days of Clark Gable and Frank Sinatra. When doing my mens fashion reviews, I tend to only use a few images from the show’s that I am reviewing, to keep it minimal, but the Dunhill Spring 2011 Collection amazed me so much I put almost half of the images up via GQ.com
