Givenchy !Top choice on TI's SS09 shopping list!Givenchy !Top choice on TI's SS09 shopping list!

Leather leggings and leather shorts with a sober tuxedo jacket and white shirt. Where was that outfit when I went dancing at Mr Black's last Saturday ? Maybe if I had a better imagination when it came to clothes I would have thought up that one. But I don't (have an audacious imagination when it comes to clothes). Which is what makes designers, strong designers with a resolved point of view necessary.

I popped over to the Women/Supreme offices last week just as the kids who work there were distributing popsicles. After assuring myself that a little sugar and ice never killed nobody I indulged, even while clocking that Paul's new intern was rocking some pretty genius moccasins with very 70's shorts. Work hard. Give them outfits. Now these are some real fashion kids!

TI recommends that the fashion flock as they migrate through Paris for the Men's shows and the Coutures that they make a stop-off at the Pompidou to cruise Tatiana Trouve's new show. Trouvé's work has been described as "site-specific constructions of mundane objects, plexiglass, metal, wood, drawings and sculptures recalls the cold halls of bureaucracy, the fitness studios, hairdresser salons, cloak rooms or torture chambers." TI's antennae just stood up on high!

Next new beauts Sarah and Virginia sat for Mr Chadwick Tyler and the resulting images were so delicate and wistful, I wish they were in my favorite glossy mag. At this rate the day will come for all involved methinks as Mr Tyler is truly distinguishing himself as a compelling young photographer to watch!

The fashion flock loves to fly in formation! I have to say I'm loving the cornucopia of show images flowing from frillr this season. Our friends at the site just sent TI an advance of their D Squared Milan show coverage, featuring a catwalk where the majority of the models were "of color". Very interesting that interweaving of early 80's style notes into the classic D Squared ethos. That should make for quite a luscious campaign. Full review later!
