It’s men’s fashion week in Milan! FW 10!!

January 18th, 2010 by MrLuxuryFashionGuru
FW10 menswear looks are being shown in Milan… and the big news is many of the shows are streaming live from the runway!  Burberry Prorsum (looks ho-hum at first glance, but I do love a good military-inspired collection), Prada, Dolce & Gabbana  and others all have live (and on-demand) streams of their entire runway shows on their websites.  What a treat!  Instant gratification!!  Except we can’t try on or buy these clothes for about nine more months!!!

 I *heart* <3 the cropped sweaters at Prada – can’t wait to try them on in just nine months or so!

That is, if I can get over my annoyance at noticing that despite a massive cast of some 50 male and female models at the show, Prada didn’t seem to have cast a single non-white model.  Not one black or Asian model that I could see, and I did look.  Very disappointing, given all the attention the industry has given to diversity on the runway and the progress that seems to have been made (especially in editorial and campaign work, in my estimation). 

Doubly disappointing given that for years Prada has been notoriously lacking in diversity on the runway but after several years of increasingly bad press the house had very visibly cast a couple of black and Asian models these past few seasons.  This feels like a terrible regression. 

I can understand, accept and even welcome tokenism, so for a cast of 50 to not have a single non-white model is really difficult to accept, especially given that the show had no discernible theme that demanded an all-white cast (and in any case even the “we had to fit with the designer’s inspiration” argument has it’s limits, with the visually poignant counter-argument in John Galliano’s FW 09 show which was inspired by “frozen Ukrainian brides” yet featured not just icy-blonde and blue-eyed Eastern European-types who made up almost the entire cast of 31, but also Chanel Iman–half black and half Korean–looking stunning…  dressed as a frozen Ukrainian bride).  And never mind that Asian consumers in Japan, China and elsewhere are probably Prada’s largest and most profitable customer base.

I’m kind of peeved, but wish I could pick Miuccia Prada’s mind about this.

PS:  The Prada runway show probably could have benefited from more flattering lighting – as in the photos above, all the models looked harshly lit and kind of sickly.

 In case the make-up, clothes and styling don’t seem particularly flattering on Chanel in the above picture, go see the pictures or YouTube videos of the full show and you’ll see that she looked just as good as the other models and fit right in.

    Zune and iPod: Most people examine the Zune on the Effect, but immediately after seeing how slim and surprisingly little and light it is, I take into account it to generally be a somewhat exclusive hybrid that combines features of the two the Touch and also the Nano. It really is really colorful and charming OLED display is slightly scaled-down than the contact display screen, however the participant by itself feels very a little smaller sized and lighter. It weighs about a couple of/three as very much, and is noticeably more compact in width and height, while staying only a hair thicker.

Its as in case you had a amazing grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to incorporate your readers. Possibly you must take into consideration this from far far more than 1 angle. Or possibly you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its greater in case you take into consideration what others might have to say rather of just going for a gut reaction towards the topic. Take into consideration adjusting your personal believed approach and giving others who might read this the benefit with the doubt.
    Your post has verified beneficial to me. It is quite informative and that you are naturally quite knowledgeable in this location. You’ve got opened my eyes to varying views on this subject with intriguing and solid content material.
    The new Zune browser is surprisingly excellent, but not as excellent as the iPod’s. It works properly, but isn’t as quickly as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. Should you occasionally program on making use of the internet browser that’s not an concern, but if you are preparing to browse the internet alot from your PMP then the iPod’s bigger screen and greater browser might be crucial.

Clicking on 1 of those will center on that item, and yet another set of “neighbors” will come into view, permitting you to navigate about exploring by comparable artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also excellent enjoyable, letting you locate others with shared tastes and becoming buddies with them. You then can listen to a playlist produced based on an amalgamation of what all your buddies are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will likely be relieved to know you’ll be able to stop the public from seeing your individual listening habits in case you so pick.
