My MANy Bags Trendspotting #01
Trendspotting With 'The Sartorialist' In Florence
This is going to be new section on my blog highlighting what real people wear:-), styles that inspires and excites me and what I would like to share with everyone:-) The sartorialist already has an excellent blog highlighting street styles, so you'd probably will see a lot of pics from his blog, but I will filter out only those that resonate with me:-)
Every new season, the sartorialist travels to the major fashion cities to get snapshots of the trendy fashion folks attending the fashion shows/events or the ultra chic locals that could make or break a trend. Here is a couple of styles from his current visit to Florence to cover the Spring Summer 2009 menswear shows and presentations. Real fashion on real people is most exciting.
Firstly, the summer shorts look with a blazer. (Remember to click on the pics to view larger formats and details) How cool is that. It's both casual and yet not sloppy with a touch of class. I love the style of the guy with the stripe blazer and the navy shorts and the boat shoes. Fabulous match.
(I found a Martin Margiela white pinstripe jacket that could pull off this look perfectly.:-) Dun you love the white key brooch on the jacket? Get the jacket at www.eluxury.com for the sale price of US $829. The interesting white key pin at US $125)
Secondly, seems coloured footwear has caught up with dear gentlemens in Italy...and of all colours, purple! WOW...it is refreshing to see purple shoes on guys. I first notice the coloured shoes at spring summer 2008 DSquared2 shows (see attached pic). It is now translated to real life. :-P
More to come. Check here to see more street snap pics.
