if i were a guy…

…i would Google-stalk and copy everything chromeo‘s david macklovitch (aka Dave 1) wears.

i’ve been listening to chromeo tracks since ’07, but never realized how admirably fashion-forward macklovitch is until noticing him pop up during my annual online trawling of respective fashion week images. i wish i could pull off slim suiting & YSL boots with such ease… sigh – it’s a #fashioncrush.

givenchy couture fall 2010.

the amount of detail alone in the givenchy couture fall 2010 collection is stunning.

it’s hard to tell from the images because the pieces are monochromatic, but there is a skeletal/religious theme – for example, the bracelets in look #2 are shaped like spinal cords, and the back of the jacket in the final look (6b) is a motif of a skull with crosses and wings; one will also note the large cross in image 5b.

the tramp.

charlie chaplin‘s “tramp” character was revived by john galliano in his spring/summer 2010 runway show in paris. i can’t say i particularly like the looks – but the endearingly theatrical galliano always knows how to put on a show.

watch the runway show here.
