Spring Awakening

Tips from a Fashionable Male

Toronto weather has really gotten me down, I swear the -30 wind chill and excessive snow is not the look; but I 'brightened' up my own day by checking out some new trends for men coming this spring 2011.

To take us out of the horrible winter of 2010, designers hit the runways with fluorescents along with a variety of bright colours! Tommy Hilfiger's Spring 2011 collection has a gathering of garments in which horizontal stripes are really making an appearance. Check out the contrasting cool colours in the ensemble of each look below.

Keep posted for more men's looks.

Peacock for Britney

Mumbai based designers Falguni and Shane Peacock are designing an outfit for Britney Spears' new music video 'Hold it Against Me'. The dress is said to be red and pink, long, flowing, dramatic, and heavily embellished. The video is being filmed in late January 2011. Can't wait to see how the dress turns out (and of course how Britney looks!).

Below is the sketch of the dress for Britney's video:

NorBlack NorWhite

The NorBlack NorWhite designer duo, Amrit Kumar and Mriga Kapadiya, have taken their design power and knowledge from Toronto to Mumbai to create trendy collections for the woman who loves Indian textiles with a mix of western fashion trends. Inspired by the states of India, each collection is created with a focus on a certain state. For Spring 2011 the inspiration comes from the state of Gujarat. I adore their use of the bandhani technique as well as the fabrics used for each of the various garments. Below are a few pictures of the Spring 2011 collection.

What do you think?
