…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.

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.

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.
