New York Spring '09 - Part 2

Men.Style.Com has got four new shows today. They were Duckie Brown, Perry Ellis, Rag & Bone and Shipley & Halmos. Duckie Brown had a good show fashion-wise but the looks wont work from runway to reality so my favourite five for today will only include one from them. Perry Ellis had lots of blue one of my favourite colours(that reminds me Duckie Brown had a bit of yellow and so did Shipley & Halmos. A trend? Well have to wait and see). They also featured some polka dots on some clothing (heads up for Style Salvage's EJ and Steve) although they looked like some sort of a disease. Rag & Bone had a lot of white socks (the first thing I noticed). Then what I noticed where wide spread collared button downs. A lot of pocket square use for a young designer, some where of the same pattern as that of the shirts. They put on a wonderful show. A feast for the eyes. Now last but not least, Shipley & Halmos. As said earlier, use of the colour yellow. Seems all the shorts are being cut short. Now onto the looks.
First up my favourite look from Duckie Brown. I really like the hairstyle and the fabric of the suit. The loose cut of the suit is also a good sight although I prefer wearing suits a little slim. I like that the designer used very few colour in this look. Grey, black and white might not even count as colours. I also like the gloves.
Perry Ellis, as I said blues. The mixture of the checks and stripes is what I liked about it. 
Rag & Bone. This was my favourite look although the entire look isn't present. The wide spread collared shirt (button down) was well executed (I know designers have done this before but there is just something different about this). I also liked the tie. If you are wondering there is a pocket square in the picture look at the bottom right(its white). 
Onto Shipley & Halmos. I have two looks that caught my attention. The first one is the look above. Yellow done well. Short shorts look great too (although the models muscular legs help). The look worked because the shirt was kept simple and white. 
My favourite part about look two would be the dressed up leather jacket. I guess the shoe matching the jacket helps.

As always I would love to hear from all of you. Please do let me know on what you think of the looks and which ones were your favourite.

The yellow trench coat is awesome. I need to get one of those. Now only if I could find some spare change lying around.

button down shirts are a must, they remind me of the whole mod get up, paired with a tie and clip, smart trousers, boots and a vespa.

my fav looks are the 2nd one, love the check shirt. and the last one, lovely jacket and shoes combo.
