This collection, inspired by Hollywood musicals, recalled the styles of personalities like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly. Along with the aesthetic influence their style had on the garments, the lightheartedness and musicality of the films was captured in the bright colors and stripes, and...

Susan Tabak home This season, Kris Van Assche showed his Spring 2012 men's collection in, of all places, the Paris Salvation Army's Palais de la Femme, an early-20th century building with the calm but slightly-intimidating aura of an all-girls' boarding school. The invitation also invoked...

It might also have been the overall paring down that was a compromise between his stricter collection from fall, and his previous more nomadic collections. Soft and easy, even in their tailoring, the jackets were mostly collarless and fitted only across the shoulder. An infusion of...

J isn't afraid to make big fashion statements, and his Spring 2012 men's collection, titled Deviated, took menswear to some of its outer limits. All of the super-skinny models (a trend seen on many of the runways this season) wore cheekbone-sculpting makeup and heavy black-capped wigs. The...

un moment avec Lee Paris, France With a whole new design team and a new name, Issey Miyake Men, sent a fresh and light collection down the spring summer 2012 runway. In the spirit of new beginnings and broad horizons, what better theme for this new phase of Miyake's menswear line than...

While the performance was pleasant and a nice pace changer during a week of back to back runways, it was a misleading introduction to the collection. Citing references like Garry Cooper's necktie in High Noon and the paintings of Renaissance artist Piero della Francesca as the source of...

un moment avec Lee Paris, France John Lawrence Sullivan might not be the name of the designer, but it is certainly a name that gives insight into the label's design world. Arashi Yanagawa, a self-taught designer, retired from boxing to launch his menswear collection in 2007, naming it after...

un moment avec Lee Paris, France More of a neighborhood gathering than a fashion show, AMI's spring collection was presented in the convivial spirit of an evening spent with friends. One friend in particular: Alexandre Mattiussi, the label's designer. The models sat along a row of benches in...

un moment avec Lee Paris, France Korean designer Songzio has a rather philosophical approach to his design process, and this season's effort to "portray a young poet's heart inspired by the spring breeze" provided plenty of fuel. While mixing western and eastern references, the somber...
