While lately, the women have been rummaging into the men’s wardrobe, it seems that the men ought to take a cue or two from the ladies!

Lanvin’s Men’s Spring 2008 collection had some curvy silhouettes and tailoring that were more characteristic of women’s wear. I like thattt!

Floppy hats with flowers, ruched blazers, pintucked tops, tie strappy sandals, bubble sleeves, thick cable knits in pretty colours like mauve (how the hell do you pronounce this colour?), velour/velvet suits, bold corsages, and are those loose leggings/slinky slim pants?! I NEED THOSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m not sure if the that female feel is that prevalent here, but I love Viktor & Rolf’s collection too.

The most vibrant garlands, coral and mint colours, unexpected print clashes, slim fits and the sudden oversized slouchy jacket, tiny man-shorts…

Oh and hello, Viktor/Rolf lookalike!

Is it just me or do most of the male models look very displeased? I definetly like some of the pieces, I’m definetly not used to seeing some of those combos on men, and would much rather have them for myself but they are very good collections.

i like a man whos in touch with his “inner girl”, although i was unsure about the tights under the shorts that turned up on a few blogs earlier in the week – leave that one for the ladies. xf
