mcqueen s/s 2011.

it’s sarah burton‘s second season taking over for the late alexander mcqueen, and she’s doing very well so far.

having been at his right hand for reportedly close to 20 years, burton has proven to be the right choice as successor for the fashion house – below are some of my favorites from the spring/summer 2011 show:

tommy’s prepsters.

tommy hilfiger should design prep school uniforms on the side – where was he during my high school years?

alexander wang v. acne.

all the [fashion] blogs are getting weak knees over a new shirt/blouse by acne, as well as other sorts of DIY shirt shoulder do-away-with-ing. ..

personally, i feel my initial excitement was given to alexander wang‘s version… in spring 2009.

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.

burberry prorsum – SS 2011 menswear.

on a menswear roll.

also digging burberry prorsum spring/summer 2011 menswear collection.

great trenches and coats with leather details – and though i could do without the netted, see-through shirts, it’s runway (aka a tad conceptual); christopher bailey hasn’t done wrong yet.

trench with leather epaulet + wrist strap details

sweatshirt with leather shoulder detail

distressed leather slim-fit cargo jacket

love this - navy trench with leather arms

another favorite

trench with wider lapel
