We almost didn't notice that time flew so quickly and season change. So- the fashion is always changing and it is the reflection of times. With this economic crisis all the designer sats down and think to create an affordable designer clothes for A/W09.

Most of the designers responded to this economic recession by looking back, not looking forward. We have seen on the runways & catwalks the retro. Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 RTW show was mostly 80’s inspired- it's like I feel singing the uptown girl imagining myself wearing an overblown cocktail dress.Other luxury designer clothing brands like Bottega Veneta Fall 2009 is so classically simple but sexy, sultry and erotic with corseting and underwires that drew attention to the breasts in a sophisticated and fashionable way. Thomas Maier succeded to block out the doldrums of the recession by creating a chic and attractive designer clothes. You wouldn't feel it's Autumn because the milieu of his collections seemed so Spring!
Givenchy fall collection by Riccardo Tisci- pays homage to the Middle East with “sarouel-influenced pants, hoods, veiled and draped silhouettes, and gold embroidery”, really chic & fantastic. He's so creative by combining the purpose of jewelry- that can act as a ring, bracelet, necklace and earrings- this is totally amazing. Lately Rihanna have seen rocks an earring-necklace combo.
Now, what is your verdict about these collection? do you find it too subdued for the season? Share your thoughts in the comments.

Mens Neckties for Fall 2009

There's a saying that we are judge the way we dressed. It's the same with the necktie- they said a man necktie can describe who he is. Well, beauty and fashion are not only for women. Men has also the right to look good, fashionable, pampered and straight. By wearing the right shirt, jeans or pants and putting the best shoes will always turn a good looking fellow to a man of character. A perfect necktie can finish any mens outfit. Most men wear ties for work especially if they are working in a multi- national company but there are occasions that need a call to wear a ties - like on a job interview, college and high school graduation, weddings , evening affairs or in any social gathering etc. That is why selecting a necktie is one of the most critical thing. Therefore, when purchasing a necktie consider the fabric. The most recommended tie is silk because the knot and drape better than the polyester. There are lot of neckties with varied colors and patterns which allow you to choose a best design for any occasion. Look for a tie that is slightly darker than the shirt for the highest impact. Find a quality necktie that is both classic and fun, with a solid but distinctive color. This also has a slimming effect; wearing a darker shirt with a lighter tie will make you seem wider than wearing the colors the opposite way. Make sure the tie projects your own personality.

Ties are visually a small detail but there are innumerable way to err with this simple accessory. We all know that many designers nowadays like Ralph Lauren matched the ties to shirts and suits but that doesn't mean that you'll be slave with this. You still have your own freedom to choose and exercise your mix and match ability which means you can still create a much more interesting and multifaceted outfit. Remember to be always proportion. That's what our designer have learned and realized that there's no single design for every man therefore this is also the thing every man should learn. Everything comes in a proportion, because this is one of the most basic aesthetic elements in fashion. This fall a modern ties range from a broad to ultra slim.
Men’s necktie is staple fashion statement. & all you need to solidify your professional look. The necktie is in fact the single most important article a man can wear as a professional, and its powerful effect must not be taken for granted. Because it's one of the most omnipresent men's fashion accessories in the world, wearing ties is a skill that any man can hardly go without.
