Sleeping with Dolce and Gabbana

Since the beginning of this blog, we have been focusing most of our attention on women's fashion. I decided that since Spring is basically here, it is time to look at men's fashion, so the guys know what to where for the upcoming season. We start our look with one of my favourite duos- Dolce and Gabbana. For their Spring/Summer 2009 Collection, there is definitely a more comfortable look to their men's fashion. You can tell that they were inspired by more a pajama/bedroom look for their outfits. This look is perfect for the home or for more of a casual setting; however, when you are going to a board meeting, this is not the type of look an executive would go for. Although there were some slim cut, traditional pant suits, the theme was definitely comfort. I loved all the skinny ties that they used for their suits as well as the scarves. Another thing that I had a problem with was that some of the shirts were a bit too tight. A fitted shirt on a man looks great, but a skin-tight shirt looks a little sleazy. My biggest pet peeve of the show was those stupid man-purses they kept bringing down the runway. What straight guy in his right mind would use a man purse? A briefcase or messenger bag is one thing, but a purse is pushing it. All in all, I must say that it was a delightful show. To view the runway show, click here
