Lady & Gentlemen

This post is a little bit ironic. And there's a story behind it. Let me explain...

September 2011: Alexander Wang's Spring 2012 show at NYFW. Excuse my French for a moment when I say, HOLY CRAP. Literally, that was my initial reaction. The concept is just flawless - between the motocross inspired clothes, the orangey tans, and the "wet" hair Mr. Wang got this one so right. I'm inspired. (photos below)

Mid- October 2011: I stumble across this Vogue Paris editorial. Reminiscent of the Alexander Wang show isn't it? Very skate park-y, guy's girl looks. The cool thing about it is I think the color scheme is still vaguely feminine. I love the bright pink & purple, and all the almost-missed beading and detailing. (photos below)

October 29, 2011 (today): I find myself at brunch with 6 of my guy friends ... and me. We are referred to as "lady and gentlemen." Seems like the perfect day for this post, no?
