From Milan - Fall 2009

Costume National

I love that Costume National went with a more relaxed fitting collection for 09, quite a brave move following the generally tight fitting trend we have seen domineering the runway over the last couple of seasons. It's also nice to see some Australian representation on the runway with Jethro Lazenby (Nick Cave's son) appearing.

Jil Sander 

Does Raf Simons ever get it wrong? From the lighter and brighter tones we saw in Spring 08, to a gradual move towards a darker experimentation of colours, the Jil Sander Fall 09 collection captures coolness and sophistication.

Burberry Prorsum

A slight reintroduction of the trademark Burberry check by Mr Bailey has encouraged skepticism from some.  Overall a very well put together collection. I am loving the square silhouetted jacket.

It's going to be a good year....
Now, if only men dressed like this in Brisbane.

How good is the costume national stuff (see my blog for top picks, ha ha!). Except I hate the pants, as predicted.

Love your Margiela header too by the way.
