Saint 2.0

This would be another Saint2 first.

This blog has never covered the topic of fashion until today. Besides, for an individual who's mostly in tees and shorts and rarely seen otherwise, what does he know about fashion? Right. I choose practical attire at the work place (and get away with it!) and even when I hit the town over sweating my ass out in shirts and pants due to this unforgiving humid weather.

Anyway, I was browsing the news sites when I stumbled upon some pictures of the recent Milan Fashion Shows. The following selections are what I call the evolution of male wear or the effeminisation of male fashion. Follow me down the fashion runway and see for yourself.

Milan Fashion Week

Alexander McQueen was another designer who presented his spring/summer 2009 collection in Milan.

Hmmm, how many of you guys dare put that on even on a special occasion? NOT me.

Woah! The formal leather version of sport sandals plus the sheen! Perhaps an upscale version of the popular Havanas.

Steve McQueen was a famous sports car racer who projects the gritty and manly image. This McQueen's designs and the overall packaging of the model is quite the opposite of course.

Nice sky blue and whites.

Okay, this is what I consider funky street wear with an attitude. Definitely very practical for the tropical weather!

I like the colours but the overexposed shoulders is way too much for me to handle. Haha.


Prada.

Scottish highland wear? Something's not right here. Too drag.

The scarf is very 60s/70s French.

My favourite - classy with nice pastels.

Grunge wear to hit the streets.

Interesting would be a polite way of saying that the floral motifs look gaudy. But the designs are kind of unique on their own. You do need a loud character to go with those.

The combination is strangely appealing.

Smart wear. Another thumbs up from me.

I like the gritty grunge look but the shiny PVC like material is just too "gay" for me. Haha.

All right. If you think you will see me in any of the above at the workplace, dream on. I still prefer my PT kit attire anytime!
