J.W Anderson Fall 2009

Rapidly growing as one of London’s most creative and innovative designers, J.W.Anderson is making waves in the fashion world. I recently discovered his Fall 2009 Collection Look Book, and it was simply beautiful. I had never seen such attention to detail, unique blends of fabric, and new, refreshing silhouettes for men. Literally the collection is a work of art, and I have truly become inspired by it. I believe this Irish-American designer will continue to grow and grace us all with new ideas in the genre of men’s fashion. Here are a few looks from his Fall 2009 Look Book…

Bow Tie Affair

Some NEW YORK TIMES writer stated in the ThursdayStyles section, “the bow tie is back, redeemed from nerdiness.” No doubt, men don’t get a lot of accessories, and, if we mistreat the ones we do have, we end up looking like….well….nerds. But it’s become an acceptable silhouette in menswear.
Post Chris Brown’s Kiss-Kiss portrayal, The bow tie is now “subtle” neckwear, arguably brought back and perfected by Andre 3000, a notable menswear icon. But….I have to ask….Is it just a trendy accessory or is it an acceptable addition to the blazer?
I mean, there’s no doubt, with the right FIT (because menswear is nothing else but good proportion and tailoring), it can cherry-top any suit jacket + denim combo. Of course black-tie is always acceptable, but
 
 
D&G gone bow tie.
DOES IT HAVE LASTING POWER IN STREETWEAR?
