Dress down and warm up - that's the idea. Shearling and leather for fall/winter 2010, Nicolas Ghesquière delivers a collection of pure casualness and warmth. A pair of tough boots is all you will need; a fall essential. Modern, moderate, and minimalistic; the sculptural cut is iconic Balenciaga.

Risky Business | Dries Van Noten Menswear Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Image Source:
Flattered by the charm of Dries Van Noten, the collection has a sophisticated attitude for fall 2010. The proper slouch is classic Dries Van Noten. The raw shoulder pad cutouts are seriously stylish and fun. Belted at the waist, we enjoy the strong silhouette of the oversized coats in contrast with the soft cotton trousers. Think Chet Baker and the 1950s with the classic double-breasted blazers; Dries Van Noten knows masculinity. Warm, elegant, and easy - a day to night look. It's the perfect man-about-town outfit for the city.

Rough Trade | Proenza Schouler Strap Leather Tote

We see Jack and Lazaro' creative twist on the new Proenza Schouler strap leather tote for pre-fall 2010. We love the fragility of the paper-like leather, embellished with black leather straps with an admirable ease. Perhaps another signature tote from Proenza Schouler.

Geek Chic | Prada Menswear Fall/Winter 2010 Collection

Image Source: GQ
Miuccia Prada goes back to her roots for Prada menswear fall/winter 2010 collection and it's irresistibly chic; geek chic. Beige and vinyl-black, a simple approach for easy-to-wear. The double knit-collar look makes an unforgettable statement for the collection. Mixed with some pieces from womens' pre-fall collection for fall 2010, we sense the eclecticism from the retro camo patterns and the youthful styling. Boyish, optimistic and fresh; a kaleidoscopic vision.

The Lover | D&G Fragrance Anthology - 6 L'amoureux

Image: Jef
Sweet yet edgy. The smell of 6 by D&G Dolce&Gabbana is undoubtly one of my favourite scents. Now available at the Bay!

"A tantalising array of spices in the top and middle notes dries down into a sensual wood and musk base. An exhilarating rush of bergamot, juniper and pink pepper is rooted in a cardamom, birch leaf and orris heart, before bedding down into a sumptuous blend of wood and musk. Romance’s very essence. Personality: The Charmer An incurable romantic in possession of an inherent nobility, dashing L’Amoureux melts the most cynical of hearts. Desired by all he meets, this charmer is all about intensity." - D&G Fragrances

"Anything simple always interests me."
— David Hockney
And so it begins... Jil Sander plays with patches for fall 2010 and relaxed sartorial elegance is the attitude. Slim trousers, geometric tailoring; Raf Simon's fall/winter 2010 collection for Jil Sander is a striking parade of fall jackets ranges from basic suits to woolen overcoats. Bravo!

Keep your cool with Givenchy Pre-Fall 2010 Collection, pieces seen on Amanda Laine and Iris Strubegger. Fall forward in a defined wardrobe of over-sized coats, cropped blazers, and bold shorts, with a hint of lace and fur. We love the sharp cropped jackets that give the minimalistic flair. Simple, modern, romantic; very Givenchy!

J'adore Toronto - John and Jef | First Post

The human equivalent to the decorative feathers, scales and fur that the animal kingdom presents. For one, fashion bleeds together with the word style which is a recollection of ideas and creativity expressed on our outer shells. Secondly, fashion is not limited to any one class of people instead, it is as diverse as the planet's array of species. Like the variety of animals in a food chain, some styles or trends are meant to survive and set the pace for others, while the weak are phased out. To conclude, the fashion world is a very vicious yet serene reality in the sense that it could be you next up for the grill and with that said, ‘treat everyday like it’s a runway.’
