A private presentation is my guess. They don't have Decarinn anymore but that new kid from under him. They never do mens runways so a presentation is to be expected. I am wondering where Phillip Lim is, he made a big deal about showing in Italy but I don't see him on the roster neither.

Showing privately. Had to dig a bit to find this schedule, they're not all combined into a nice complete schedule like Milan http://www.modeaparis.com/IMG/pdf/surrvmm0611-2.pdf

Did a quick search and it's kind of pitiful how many results were reblogs of Selectism. What's the point of blogging if you're just going to copy-paste what someone else wrote? Don't think anyone has posted full pics of the presentation, all of my sources haven't posted anything and they're usually on top of their game Barrett's patternwork (in terms of fabric, not tailoring) is so on point this season. Love

Gamme Bleu: Remember, this is not the Thom Browne mainline so there is perhaps a little less theatricality in the presentation. However, the proportions and the details (ex. the use of contrasting trims) are still very much Thom.

Neil Barrett: Really? I see this collection as I have all his others; a tiny glimmer of promise overshadowed by it...well...not being any good. And when you see his stuff in person it (IMO) always looks even worse than the runway.

Bottega / Trussardi / Missoni
: It really is shaping up to be a season of knits (or at least one where the knits are the highlight (add the aforementioned to Jil, Burberry, and etc.).

Prada: No comments on this? I guess no one plays golf . Whatever one may think of it will be shoved down our throats in every editorial in the next 6 month according to the precedent.

gamme bleu was the best so far

when people say fashion isn't wearable, they're talking about the above

Without a doubt my favorite day two show. For day three so far Etro is seeming to be unbeatable. Looking forward to what Z Zegna and McQueen will produce.

I like looking at the shoes on the edge of runway pics.

I always love checking the shows out. So here's my unsolicited take.

Varvatos - Is it just me, or did this guy run out of ideas like ten years ago? I feel like he does the same thing over and over without even trying to make it look fresh. Every so often I've seen stuff from him I really like, but this collection seems particularly uninspired to me. He needs to stop making clothes for Robert Plant and Roger Daltrey and start listening to some music being made today.

Prorsum - Not always my thing, and this isn't my favorite of Bailey's, but I always like the fit and colors. The tailoring always looks great to me, whether stuff is fitted or more draped. No exception here. I'm a fan.

Band of Outsiders - So first time out for Sternberg in Milan and it looks, well, ok, in my opinion. I like the white jeans, but I always like white jeans. Couple of cool jackets. Not a lot of range, though I don't think anyone really expects that from Sternberg. Definitely wearable, and definitely a little pedestrian.

Calvin Klein - I think I know the inspiration for this look, and it is this.

Moncler - Haha, just plain stupid sometimes.

Bottega Veneta - One I usually look forward to, but it felt a little lackluster to me.

Jil - Jeez, I always feel like I'm missing something when I hear people raving about Raf. I just don't find his stuff that appealing. I wasn't crazy about this show either.

Gucci - This is one of my favorites. Obviously not anything revolutionary; just clothes I'd like to own (for instance, this and this). I always like the fits.

Alexander McQueen - Maybe the show I look forward to the most since the stuff is always so badass, but I thought this collection was kinda boring, which made me a little sad for obvious reasons. Then again, I always think the fall collection is better with McQueen (thinking of fall 08 and 09).

Trussardi - People have been so excited about Umit Benan taking the helm as creative director. I wasn't a fan of every look, but I liked a few of them, like that opening suit Uncontrol posted the pic of.

So far the shows this season has been doing well at shattering my preconceived notions of these houses or maybe I am being a little lenient? Surprised I kind of have to say that I loved the D&G show...So much 80's-90's Gianni Versace silk screenprints mixed with Givenchy's crazy patterns from a few seasons past. The moccasins were also whimsically fun and added to the overall beach days feel. But I hate with so much passion the denim waistbands that ruin mostly every single look.

wow, thats D&G? nice. but yeah, ruined with waistbad. good call on givenchy

Just took a look at the footwear Angela Missoni cooked up. Had to share some of them. These Missoni x Converse trainers are so sick with their thick white classic sole. Call this one wishlisted. Calvin Klein Collection put out more of their sneaker dress show hybrids. Now totally on trend with the addition of the translucent creeper sole that is so popular right now with Balenciaga and Opening Ceremony!
