Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 Menswear

Day One of the Milan menswear shows and it's already obvious: Fall 2012 is the Season of the Suit. And designers will rise or fall on how they interpret this staple of the masculine wardrobe. As an urban evolution of the military uniform, the suit stands for security in a man's closet. Which means Christopher Bailey is fashion's Securicor for Fall. Not only can he draw on Burberry's military heritage and acute sartorialism, but he can also tap the seam of eccentricity that runs through the company's history—and its tradition of artisanship. He did all of that today, to great effect. The show was called The Gentlemen. Afterwards, Bailey was stressing the gentle. In particular, it was the virtues of politeness and good manners that he was endorsing.

(Nor should it be much of a surprise, given Wang's talent for coming out just ahead of the curve, that after the designer booked him, the modeling agency that had all but forgotten it represented him wanted to send him to Europe for go-sees for the menswear collections.) The point is, Wang's key words are street andsport. His burgeoning men's collection may be more refined than the T line out of which it grew, but it hews close to its original.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 Ready-to-Wear

How do you follow up a merry-go-round? If you're Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton, you get your people to build an old-fashioned train car. From scratch. The steam engine it was attached to pulled into the Cour Carrée a few minutes after ten this morning. One by one, Jacobs' models de-boarded wearing outfits straight out of the golden age of railroading, followed by porters carrying as many as three bags per girl. The news on the bag front this season is their oversize proportions and exotic fabrications. "It's just a trip," Jacobs said afterward, but you could tell even he was chuffed by the grand spectacle of it all.
