MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA
The Autumn/Winter Men’s Runways were packed full of leather, even down to the details… leather underwear boys?! Once saved almost exclusively for rockers and bikers, leather pants are now becoming synonymous with today’s style concious metro-sexual man! A stylish choice that can look sophisticated or daring – or a bit of both – a pair of leathers can give any look an innate rugged charm. If you can’t resist them anymore, and think you have what it takes to pull them off, you may still be wondering how to wear them? Our menswear buyers suggest teaming them up with something subtle like a lightweight sweater for a stylish, polished look or you could match them with a T-shirt and blazer for a casually cool, sexy look. Now it’s just up to you, how will you wear yours?
An all leather jumpsuit by Yves Saint-Laurent…amazing!
“My dream is to give to women the foundation for a classic wardrobe, by escaping the fasion trend, it allows them to have a greater self-confience.” Yves Saint Laurent
Fall/Winter 09 inspiration is masculinity versus femininity: a reinterpretation of masculine codes with a grey color palette, flannel and striped wool fabrics is mixed with ultra feminine and powerful leather bustiers.
All hadmade in Italy, this amazing line of silver and leather jewellery called Marmèn is new not only to Luisa but to the world of luxury fashion. The designer, Marco Mencagli, is a young Italian who spent most of his life travelling from New York to Florence. His signature piece for this season is a Limit.Ed for LuisaViaRoma: the Thriller bracelet, a rigid silver cuff adorned with his characteristic faceted silver studs covered in black deerskin leather. The rest of the collection follows this inspiration and includes styles with just as interesting names: the Miss Suicide necklace, the Bloody Cage ring, the Hell’s Kitchen bracelet, and Killer Twins earrings, amongst others. Definitely a future to be seen here!
