With Menswear Spring 2012 at an end and Fall 2011 Couture already starting. I pulled together some of my favorite collections for menswear. And of course all of these designers are a favorite of mines for women’s fashion as well. 3.1 Phillip Lim collection had interesting pieces, but the tie-dye pieces were most interesting of all. Burberry Prorsum’s collection had bright colors and ikat patterns great look for men in the Spring. Salvatore Ferragamo did an excllent job of capturing the casual beach look but with so much class. Netting defined the collection for Dolce & Gabbana. But my all time favorite for Menswear Spring 2012 was Hermes collection, every piece had a causual luxury feel.

The runway shows from the Paris Spring 2010 collections were full of surprises and as expected, beautiful clothes. Some of these included Alexander McQueen’s short dresses, with digitally printed reptile patterns and shoes that were simply amazing; while Valentino’s short party dresses in soft tones like pale yellow, rose, gold and nudes made from very sheer fabrics such as tulle, organza, chifon and lace. They were very different from the house’s tradition. Chanel’s show took place on a huge barn inside the Grand Palais, with a flirty country look.
