Tod’s Men’s Fall 2011

The color palette for Tod’s fall men’s collection says it all: chocolate brown, warm honey, marble stone and earthy sand. Yes, it’s all about distinct yet classic bags, many in exotic skins like crocodile and python, that exude a richness that only Tod’s can create. A key piece is the transversal 24-hour bag, designed not … Continue reading Tod’s Men’s Fall 2011

Burberry Prorsum Men’s Fall 2011

Christopher Bailey once again turned out a sturdy, solid and stylish collection of men’s Prorsum bags for fall. More geared toward oversized pieces that leant themselves for travel, the duffels and totes bore minimal hardware and lots of texture. Naturally, I gravitated toward the ombré croc tote. But how could you not? It looked incredible! … Continue reading Burberry Prorsum Men’s Fall 2011

Louis Vuitton Launching New Damier Infini Line

I haven’t been this excited about a new men’s Vuitton line since Damier Graphite was unveiled.

I have been a huge huge fan of M0851 for years, my entire family has an array of these in their closets, mainly because they are easy easy easy.

Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags

In one word: utilitarian. With a head trip theme underlying the spring men’s collection, Louis Vuitton’s men’s studio director Paul Helbers, under the auspices of Marc Jacobs, channeled what he described as “a rhapsody of three virtual scenarios for a digital bohemian, a man who travels the world from behind his computer screen.” That translated … Continue reading Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring 2011 Runway Bags
