SPITGAN! GUCCI MENS SS17

I want to come to this tea party. If there ain’t drugs there I am gonna beat narcotics out your blood stream! I bet you it’s like tea sets of percocets…pills, pills, pills, whatever’s the new school is into these days. Weed is the afterthought here. Let’s just stick to the foolery that is the men’s, it’s already too much dress up. Where do you fellas hang? Do you beef with Cosplay kids? I wanna trip on your toadstools deep in your perscription forests, do boat cruises on your cough syrup lakes. Let’s beef over Twitter. You are somehow disrespecting Wes Anderson, Alessandro and I don’t like.

SPITGAN! GOSHA RUBCHINSKIY MENS SS17

So Gosha, straight up, how old are these boys? Jesus. Aight. Some reference to a guy called Pasolini, a Communist, who inspired this collection. These kids are more a reference to said cat’s teenage lover, or 17 year-old hustler that confessed to his murder. Boys look like they about to enter their teens not in it. Twisted. The clothes are otherwise some overpriced sportwear fair for a new generation that has never seen it before. Track pants and blazers, that these pubescent soccer hooligans like to wear. Collabs with Italian brands, Fila, Kappa, and Sergio Tacchini, the hipster is now a Gino. It’s all good these days. Viva la Fuccboi!

GIVENCHY MENS SS17

Well it’s the end of an era. Riccardo has moved on from the brand he brought back to life, and infused with a complete new set of DNA. For this, his last season of menswear the silhouette has not changed. Definitely masculine, the advances are in the details. Some zipped collars catch my eye, a stiff, laquered fisherman hat, and zip enclosures to tee’s and blazers alike. No reinvention of the wheel but it’s highly wearable and still a style I dig! The finally of the show also included 13 women’s couture pieces for just random, excess flavor. Wit it!

Well the maestro continues to go go go! Still bringin his extended mixes to the runways 60 to 70+ looks at a time. I must say I continue to find his designs interested and relevant. A Prive collection comes to mind of recent… He does enough forwardness that it forces you to keep one eye up! Salute to Giorgio. Some breezy suit pairings and cuts here, baggy trousers loose, all to another season’s accomplishment!

ETRO SS17 MENS

Well the haus of Etro was always known for some prints. This season they matched it up with some suitings and it went from zero to hero for me. Always doing it more on the ‘loud’ side of things, this season the color palette is more rusted and dark. More wearable without callin’ attention to yourself too much which is just right most of the time.

DRIES VAN NOTEN SS17 MENS

Dries of course! Rarely does he not make the list of the best collections, men’s or women’s! He’s really out there competing with himself. This season’s menswear for me is another feather in the cap for sure! Playing on themes I am always impartial to. Mixing camo prints. Silver spacey materials and unconventional cuts all add up to create a sum greater than it’s parts! Salute to the master!
