Grizzly Adams in fashion, seriously?

Menswear continues to get more and more bizarre. Men in skirts. Men in masks. Men in lipstick. Now designers are trying to tell us the mountain man look is hot. Isn't that the antithesis of runways?

Menswear continues to get more and more bizarre. Men in skirts. Men in masks. Men in lipstick. Now designers are trying to tell us the mountain man look is hot. Isn't that the antithesis of runways?

What do you think about this look from British label, Hentsch Man?  It was part of the runway presentation Monday for the pre-fall menswear look at London Fashion Week. I like the plaid. I like the orange shoes. I like the warm coat. Presentation was just odd.

Nonetheless, Menswear is the genre to look at for as the fall 2013 shows commence.

What do you all think?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
