on my wishlist

call me crazy, but i REALLY want this cape! i have to have it. american apparel is always reinventing old items, and adding a new, modern twist to them. i think the black one would look very chic if done with a very streamline black, or even brown, ensemble. if done right, you could give little red riding hood a run for her money. but if done wrong, you could end up looking like count dracula...and thats not a good thing.

Victor Glemaund F/W 2009

i got a tip from a very chic friend of mine (you know who you are) to check out VICTOR GLEMAUND, a designer whom i'd never heard of before. apparently, she thought that Glemaund's f/w 2009 collection was, "soo you," so i decided to take a look. with the first look that i saw, i fell in love. the collection interpreted many different shades of grey, and mixed textures to create a very unique look. i'm a huge fan of cuffed trousers, an exaggerated collar, and mixing baggy and fitted silhouettes, and Glemaund's collection consisted of all of the above. Could he possibly be my new favorite menswear's too soon to tell, but mr. marc jacobs may have some competition!
