Dior is marching in full force. The heavy use of army green and a slim silhouette will have the boys dropping down and giving 10 this fall season.

The Lanvin gentlemen powered down the runway in hunched shoulders and tucked in waists.

Boys, do not bring your girlfriends to Comme Des Garcons this fall season; you’ll have to fight over the floral printed trapeze coat.

Punk vs. jock is what Thom Browne was debating in this ensemble that’s straight out of a Tim Burton nightmare.

Occupy Kris van Assche: the designs blend the workmen of the past with the wall street of the future.

Recycle and reuse was Maison Martin Margiela’s philosophy this season, giving classic French elegance a retro twist.

Hats off to Opening Ceremony’s Carol and Humberto for revamping Kenzo. Seems like everything they touch turns to gold. This cool fresh take will have the boys clamoring to the stores!

What has Dries Van Noten taken over in Antwerp? Whatever it is, this psychedelic elegance inspired by Oscar Wilde and Frank Zappa has me wanting some!

Robert Mapplethorpe would have approved of Yves Saint Laurent’s leather-bound beauties.

Yohji Yamamoto was all about reworking the coat this season, ranging from the military look to the 18th century aristocrat. It isn’t until you try on a Yohji that you can truly appreciate the collection!

Change, energy, freedom, protection is what Raf Simons is after this season. Check out the rebellious use of youthful colors and oversized proportions.

Junya Watanabe has mastered the fit and ease of an urban Farmer.

Alexander Wang is slowly working out his men’s collection, concentrating on fit and quality in every piece. I’m loving the acid washed hoodie.
