New York Spring '09 - Part 4

Four new shows up today - William Rast, DKNY, Patrik Ervell and Y-3. William Rast had a better start than I expected it would. They had help from Johan and Marcella Linderberg (which I did not know about until today). DKNY celebrated their 20th anniversary with this collection. Most of it was something I am tired of seeing (I know many of you might have different opinions) t-shirts with suits. Patrik Ervell put on a show that I enjoyed browsing through. He had a lot of great looks suitable for everyday wear. The Y-3 show had a lot of colour but also had a lot of black. Onto my favourite looks from the shows of today. Seems I'm partial to some designers. Only Patrik Ervell and Y-3 can be found below.
Look 1. Patrik Ervell. What I liked? Everything. The moment I saw it I fell in love once again. The jacket, the cut of the trousers, the shoes, the tattoos(although not Patrik Ervell designed), the pattern of the jacket and the hairstyle. Well pretty much all of it.
Look 2. Patrik Ervell again. What I like is the colour of the trousers, the shoe, the pattern of the jacket, the fit of the trousers. What I didn't like was the fit of the jacket. I would have preffered it a little slimmer (but that's just my opinion).
Look 3. Y-3. I am liking the layering, especially the fact that it is all black. The accessories too - the shoes, the bag, the cap.
Look 4. More Y-3. The hat. I thank all the people trying to popularize the hat. You are helping a good cause (looking good is as good of a cause as the other). The use of only black and white without looking very rock n roll. 
Look 5. More Y-3 (do not worry this is the last). What I liked. The pocketed track pants (I would have loved to call them track trousers), the colour and shape of the shoe, the transparent blazer / jacket with blue piping, the t-shirt with raglan sleeves and the leather strap of the bag (too bad I can't see the entire bag. Its times like these I wish I was at the shows watching).

Special note - The Journal Of Style has completed 50 posts (53 to be exact). Thank you to every one who has been an inspiration for this blog and all my readers who have given me great support. Thank you all.

Thank you Steve. I am working on the 5 essentials (I have decided what they are. Now I am looking for pictures of them).
