Nothing screams pride and confidence more than Walter Van Beirendonck‘s confidence in the use of bold colors and fabrics. This collection has a jovial bounce to it. It makes me feel like a virgin all over again, “touched for the very first time”. If I were ever stricken with a wicked case of Narcolepsy, I would hope to awaken dressed in Walter’s garments, a mixture of The Muppets meet in Candyland  and  take a trip to Japan. Just go with me on this one.

We have our eyes on all things Walter!

Name Embroidered Shirt; Going, Going, Gone

by Accidental Bear

Don’t blink, because this will only be cool for a hot second and then be on the sale rack at Urban Outfitters in no time.

We shouldn’t like this, but we do. A gingham shirt with geometric embroidery across the shoulders doesn’t sound great on paper, but we like the results. It’s like something your gran would knit for you – if your gran was a fashion designer. (LN-CC)

See, Gay Couples are just like Straight Ones

by Accidental Bear

So, sad the commonalities we share with straight couples. We are not all fabulous and colorfully happy (gay). Some only  see red and kill our partners too. Now we have 3 fathers cats in the world, so sad.

Massachusetts Man Slays Husband At Home

Michael Losee, a 41-year-old Boston-area man, stands accused of killing his husband Brian Bergeron, 55, in a “tragic incident of domestic violence.” Losee, who had been with Bergeron (a former Barbie clothing designer) for more than 20 years, phoned a friend in Florida and confessed to the crime; the friend then contacted authorities, and Losee turned himself in. It’s unclear who will care for their three Siamese cats, Suki, Soki, and Sushi.

Tom Ford, Heterophobic

Just because you are queer as a $2 bill doesn’t mean you have good taste, can design yourself out of a K-hole or superior in the garment world, but Tom Ford says so. Lets think about this. I mean, we (queers) are light in our loafers, ANAL about detail and sensitive to the color blind ( I can pull anything out of my ass), right? But to DEBUNK this idea of Toms, take a stroll through San Franciscos Castro District or down Christopher Street in  New York and you will see (CODE RED) total fashion disasters. Hello, gay brother the 90’s wants its style back and the 80s is sadly missing its hair ( but not in a ironic way).

Tom Ford: Gay Designers Are Superior

By Advocate.com Editors

TOM FORD X390 (GETTY) | ADVOCATE.COM

Never one to give a boring interview, Tom Ford recently explained toInterview magazine why gay men are superior in the world of high fashion.

“I think I detach the physical from the spiritual. It’s my business to make a woman or a man beautiful, and I’m working with a model in a fitting, and I’ve objectified them to the point that they become an object,” Ford told artist John Currin, whose wife, Rachel Feinstein, recently modeled in an intimate show of Tom Ford’s return to women’s wear design.

“They’re something that I’m modeling or shaping or sculpting, but I’m very aware that even though I make them physically beautiful, their soul and personality and character is somewhat detached from that,” Ford said. “It’s great when you have a combination of the two — that’s what makes a true beauty. Some people are physically beautiful but yet they’re completely uninteresting, and thus they’re not beautiful. I detach the two. … That’s why I think gay men make better designers.”

Roberto Cavalli makes me want to SPARKLE

Roberto Cavalli Fall 2011 | Milan Fashion Week

“No stranger to exorbitant details, Roberto Cavalli finds the soul of his latest collection in a rich new outing that boasts a hint of the glamorous 70′s. Finding room for the three-piece suit, while accessorizing with neckties and tribal accents, Cavalli brings in his over the top finesse with dynamic outerwear. From shearling and fur to the occasional knit, fall’s collection takes from the past and charges into the immediate future with a charming nostalgia and style that easily conforms to the signature allure of the Cavalli man.” written by carl on saturday, january 15th, 2011 from http://thefashionisto.com/roberto-cavalli-fall-2011-milan-fashion-week/
