Um, yes. I am posting a Menswear collection for Fall while every other blogger right now is trying to be the first ones to start posting on Spring 2012 collections. It's summer right now, then Fall is going to arrive in no time. So why start blabbing about Spring clothes for 2012 already when there's a whole season in between.
I am just waiting for Fall to come back again since dressing up in summer isn't really working out for me. So while everyone else is getting their parties bumping on their summer nights in their little shorts and tank tops, I am at home, in front of my closet, preparing for the Fall of 2011. And I just had to post the WHOLE collection of Phillip Lim because I think it defines the essential needs for men during Fall seasons; Beautiful shades of dark colors, excellent cuts with fantastically structured silhouettes, with a playful nice touch of mixed fabrics and materials. The best.

Summer is almost here. I'm not too excited though because it's one of the hardest season to dress for, aside from Spring because of the rain/eery weather. And when I say that, some people just say I'm plain crazy. And by "some people", I mean the girls. Seriously, girls love summer like middle school kids love last day of school. They get extra excited because they don't have to worry about the cold anymore and dress as light as they can, as bright as they can, and accessorize as much as they can. For guys? It's a bit difficult to do those three things without looking TOO dressed up. Especially for me when I'm too used to layering.
But I guess this is what keeps me going. Challanges in the way of dressing. I suppose the A.P.C. Collection for 2011 Spring/Summer pretty much sums it up on how a man can dress up for summer without being too dressed up. If that makes any sense. Focus on neutral/light colors, use some casual classic, well-cut pieces, incorporate with a piece or two of formal garments that portrays conservative monotone colors. We'll see how it goes, summer of 2011.
