kelly klein does interview

As an homage to the concluded European menswear shows, here's the December/January 2007 issue of Interview which features male models (clockwise from top left) Chase Ferguson (Next), Joshua Ku (Re:quest), Zach Ferry (IMG), Ryan Taylor (IMG), and Mael Dalla Zuanna (Ford) in "Freedom Wave".

And a bonus! Über-cool Mey Bun (NY Models) in Chanel.

I love the apparel and accessories overload, but not really liking the Conair temporary hair color streaks and the neon backgrounds. It's kind of a head-scratcher as to how an all-black-wearing man could conjure up color like this. Wait, Bill Mullen is Donatella Versace's stylist after all.

Runway chit-chat again! I'm so behind. I need to post promptly from now on:

Tuesday, Feb 6: Season after season of success, Derek Lam didn't disappoint at all. Behnaz. Oy vey. I was expecting more. Rodarte built upon its paneled dresses and made more interesting shapes. Insane Wizard of Oz at Heatherette!

Wednesday, Feb 7: I felt that Peter Som started off not so new. After the eighth or so look, I loved the bursts of color and neon. Towards the end, it had that feeling of being redone again. It felt so fragmented to me. Anyone else who loved Richard Chai say "aye"! Flood of fresh blood at Proenza Schouler. Lots of newer girls walked. Each season, they leave us with something incredibly beautiful. In the past, there were bra tops, cape collars and seersucker, palm prints, geometrics, houndstooth and empire waists, Victorian elegance, Trombley references, Hervé Léger references and now it's those ribbed coats and criss-crossing pleats! Purple, purple everywhere at Anna Sui.
