inkyoto @ : Dior Homme iPod Cases
does someone know if there will be any new iPod cases for the new generation iPods? I'm tempted to buy one off ebay, but they're from the first generation iPods and i fear that the screen will be obstructed by the case itself. any information will be more than helpful. thanks.

v0rtex @ : Hedi Slimane Article from the Observer
Great interview in The Observer with Hedi Slimane, originally published in September.
'There's so many connotations in muscles and virility, I find it crap. I'm not interested. I'm really interested in how masculinity is in your head. That's what I worked on. And Paul Simenon [of the Clash] and all these heroes had that strength. But it's not something they expressed through their body. I was always more interested in the psychology rather than the science of life. Like power and masculinity. For instance, when I started to do suits, I always really loved tailoring, but I was surprised how it was meaning things that I didn't quite understand - that sense of power and stature. I just wanted it to be a pure piece of almost hedonistic pleasure. For me it was a very normal thing to have. And a whole generation of guys never wore suits. You wore a jacket, if you go to a wedding, you borrow it.'

lalaladolcevita @ : MENSWEAR S/S 05
As everyone knows menswear is the fear to tread waters of the fashion industry. Taking risks is not something that is too frequent and playing it safe is a common mantra for most designers. Men simply can't get away with the things women can. Even Comme des Garçons, the poster-child of Avant Garde fashion, recognize that while over-constructed biker jackets and exaggerated tutus can be sent out on the runway for girls, they must keep to basic suits and stay the course with relatively reserved clothes for the boys. There however many designers (CDG included) who are making progress in menswear with new cuts and fits, keen aesthetics, and a sense of fun and adventure that had previously been kept to the world of femme couture. Let's hear it for the boys
My Top 5 of S/S 05 Progressive Homme Couture
Bernhard Wilhem- This german/dutch designer who makes nostalgic and playful clothes for women has translated those same qualities for men. His recent Spring/Summer 05 show revealed a bright and contrasting color palette, bold patterns, and a quite unique and unconventional silhouette. Taking a cue from Japanese work-wear he had strong checkered prints, inflated cropped pants, and astonishing construction detail fit for a 19th century corset. His clothes are definitely for the men but are still fun, wearable, and truly unique.
Comme des Garçons- While Rei Kawakubo does not employ the same sense of innovation and deconstructionism as she does in her femme collection, she does have much to offer the menswear arena. Her Spring/Summer 05 collection featured pink as a main component and not just a smidge of a polo shirt or basic t-shirt (the standard limit for most men's will to dabble with the color). Instead she brought it on with entire suits, jackets, and trouser in various values of the tinted color. She also employed bold patterns of pink and complimenting neutrals that remained masculine yet bubbled slightly over the limits of traditional menswear.
Dior Homme- Hedi Slimane is known for his slim and sleek tailoring, effeminate accents, and radically tight silhouette. In his S/S 05 collection he did not disappoint. He took an even further delve into youth culture which he had been exploring in past seasons as well as his photography efforts (intermission, berlin). He offered up this season a collection with such a youthful bend that it almost made no room for traditional mens suits that are frequent in most Dior shows. Instead there were fuschia jeans, gold sports-jackets, and grungy prints suitable for the indie rock scene of the early 90's. His clothes this season were boyish, subtle, and filled with the progressive spirit of rock n roll.
Henrik Vibskov- Henrik came out with a collection full of some of the most wearable yet thoughtful clothes the designer has yet to show. It had a an urban/street flair definitely for the young male with a bit of an attitude. What made the clothes so interesting is that they maintain that attitude while implementing youthful details and cropped sports trousers, Day-Glo patterns white fabric, and and a soft silhouette. Less couture and more approachable for the everyday man than other designers but still as forward pushing as any other.
Raf Simons- The furniture designer turned tailor moved far away from the hippie/hare krishna look he had last S/S. In a similar vein of his A/W show he showcased brutally graphic tailoring, a sleek and exact silhouette, an the finishing details that have made Raf Simons the reigning king of menswear. This season color was absent in favor of mostly black and mostly white looks. Ranging from twilight hour coats to heavenly jackets the pieces were majestic, grand, and empowering. Even with the straightforward tailoring Simons included pieces that had such beautiful construction you would have expected it to be for women. Raf Simons playing off traditional menswear tailoring managed to push it's application into waters few other designers have sailed.

incroyable12 @ : Hello,
This forum doesn't seem to have much activity or members. However I have a strong penchant for Dior Homme. Being vain as I am I can say that I am one of the faiRly few who can fit into Dior Homme. Unfortunately their pieces are rather high priced.
Perhaps I should be like Karl Lagerfeld, and buy out the whole collections?
