The devil is in the details

Heels this year were the largest we have seen yet on the catwalk. Ten inch numbers were all the rage. People laughed when Heidi Klum teetered on 12 inch heels for German Vogue thinking it was an editorial stunt. However, it looks like the glossy trend is becoming a reality. How are mere mortals expected to walk in ten inch heels when the professionals – the catwalk models – can’t manage it without wobbly legs or occasional falls?
The pain may just be worth it. Legs look positively giraffe-like in these masterpieces. So here are my top picks for the forthcoming spring season.

A Well Dressed man…



Ok so I thought it was about time to give the male species a bit of attention here as fashion certainly isn’t for females alone. 

The first day in Milan was centrally focused around men’s fashions and if you thought there were some crazy sights on the catwalks for New York and London you should have seen some of the catastrophes strutting their stuff on the catwalks in Italy. 

That’s not to say I wasn’t enjoying the view because what girl in her right mind doesn’t enjoy the sight of a man with the body of a Greek god strutting his stuff with no shirt in sight?  But those aren’t fashions that are applicable to the every day male. 

Above, I have chosen looks I believe are easily translatable for city life. Looks that will make you stand out for being chic and fashionable, not because you look like a space oddity.  I will admit that they are classic in nature with slight modern twists put in place by the designer, but why mess with something that works?  Any man stepping out in the outfits above is sure to be noticed…and dare I say, desired.
