I have been sort of overwhelmed lately with the menswear fashion stomping down the runways of Milan and through into Paris and I can’t help but realize that it seems a certain designer is taking some inspiration for his Autumn 09 collection from our favourite men on television.
While Salvatore Ferragamo has always been known for impeccable style and perfectly tailored menswear, his most recent collection, just shown this past week has got a little bit more upper east side flair than normal. I’ve pulled some images and put together a little collage of some of Ferragamo’s best looks.
While it’s not strange that much of the suiting fits the top style Chuck Bass, what is surprising is that even the haircut suits Chuck’s character as well. There’s even styling that’ll suit up Nate and Dan, with hair do’s to top it off.
Head to toe, this line was made for the men of GossipGirl. And while designers may be playing off the much loved television series, let’s only hope that some of our Canadian men’ll do the same.
Salut Canadian Gossip Girl fans,
First off, the return episode of gossip girl was relief to my soul. A month without upper eastside flair and gossip had almost done me in, but, thankfully, after episode fourteen, we have more than enough to talk about until the latest postings from GG herself.
I’d like to introduce myself as s. Staying true to everything gossipgirl, ‘s’ has been my tag line to my personal fashion blog, and is what you can call me here at gossipgirl.ca.
After reading all of the gossipgirl novels through grade school and high school, the debut of gossipgirl as a television series sent my heart wheeling. The storyline, as we all already know, is enough to keep us all hooked, but what I was dying to see was the wardrobe for every character I loved, and, each one I despised.
While Patricia Fields turned the fashion from the pages of the popular novel series into the real life look in season one, Eric Daman (and his assistant Meredith Markworth-Pollack) spun new twists to the season two fashion story for gossipgirl.
If you haven’t heard of Eric Daman, you better well have heard of Patricia Fields, seeing as she’s the main name behind the wardrobe designs for Sex and the City. Now, back to Eric. Well, Eric worked with Patricia for three years on the set of Sex and the City. His work there really shone, seeing as he’s now the man in charge for gossipgirl. But, I mean, with there being talks of a second Sex and the City: The Movie, you can’t blame Pat for putting all of her efforts there.
Eric transformed the fashion for our favourite upper east siders in season two. While we were given a nice little preview to fashion inspirations our favourite characters pulled off, they really became more than noticeable in season two. How much do you love the Kate Moss inspiration for Serena, and how about Audrey Hepburn for Miss Blair? I know. I love it as well.
While I may not have every answer on where you can buy Blair’s latest worn cocktail dress, or Serena’s kickin’ boots, I’ll try my very best to hand you the ins and outs of designers and the gossipgirl fashion from each episode, served with a side of my own opinions, future predictions, and overall fashion critiques.
Hope you all enjoy this as much as I do.
