Here are some exclusive behind the scenes images I got from the Louis Vuitton Press Release to share with you guys!

When it comes to menswear, you know who always get’s my love! My boy, Olivier Rousteing, always knows how to do it and this year was nothing less! Him and his muse for the evening, Justin Bieber, both rocked some custom Balmain Homme Fall/Winter 2015 looks as they attended the 2015 ‘China: Through The Looking Glass’ Costume Institute Gala At The Metropolitan Museum Of Art! A couple of the best dressed boys no doubt!
Here are your first looks at the Balmain Homme Fall/Winter 2015 mens collection. I of course love the luxurious textures and the use of the crystal and embroideries. Something new and interesting this season are the extreme proportions Olivier infused into the silhouettes of the mens collection. From the Samurai style pants to the extra long blazers. I also love the new lengthy coats, especially the velvet one with the embroidered cuffs – it’s so luxurious #HOTDAYM!.. Anyways, continue reading to see more of the collection and read Olivier Rousteing’s method behind the madness and inspiration for the collection.
For this collection, I was inspired by how I’m seeing today’s new generation dress for the evening. In all parts of the world—from Los Angeles to Hong Kong, with stops in Paris, London, Dubai and the other traditional and rising fashion capitals along the way — I’ve been noticing what you could call the evolution of the ‘new aristocrats.’
Unlike traditional aristocrats, this diverse and inclusive grouping of stylish men knows how to confidently blend together looks pulled from both their fathers’ wardrobes and the streets. For Fall 2015, I’m channeling their energy and referencing that new creative mix made up of perfect doses of classic pieces, fluid silhouettes and hip-hop stylings. It’s a spirit that seems right for my generation and a style that I feel comfortable calling my own.
For the Fall/Winter 2015 mens collection for Sergio Rossi, Angelo Ruggeri, design director, emphasizes the pure elegance of a contemporary classic, by exploring the stylistic codes of the brand. Infused with strong male shapes and details such as high-frequency technique that give incredible three-dimensional effects and elements such as the craftmanship of light darkened leather which confers a special intensity to colours. English-style takes a modern twist. See below for more!
For free time, the use of hides as English crust leathers having a fabric effect is best expressed in the boots with internal and external buckles all along the sock. The craftmanship know-how of the brand is also shown in the details of the twocolour leathers and the non-grip saw-tooth waveform soles. And for the evening, the man becomes basic and dandy to wear slippers or velvet laceups with piping in silk soutache.
Carrying on with my distinct excitement for what was making it’s way down the runways last week here in Toronto during World MasterCard Fashion Week….. Here I introduce to you my favourite luxury, dressy and formalwear menswear designer in Canada… HD HOMME… One of the only designers in our country to not only take menswear to the next level but not be afraid to experiment with it. I feel like everyone here does luxury formalwear so basic and they take pride in it.. They say it’s all in the details, but everyone’s doing the details.. Why I love HD HOMME so much is because yes, they do everything right.. They do it down to the details, the impeccable tailoring, the clean lines, the perfect finishes.. Yes, they do that all.. But then Hussein Dhalla, designer for HD HOMME, taks it to the next level by experimenting with the various aspects of menswear and taking it to the next level.. The proportions, the textiles, the prints, the colours and textures and you know… The sheer tank tops, and #YASSS… Those DEEP, DEEP, DEEP, DEEEEEP V’s… You already know I was basically convulsing over what I was seeing when those extreme deep v’s made their way down the runways… I personally can not wait to get myself in as many pieces from HD HOMME’s Spring/Summer 2015 collation as possible!!!! Stay tuned!!!!!!!!
