Sunglasses are so SS11

Sometimes, the most effective way to understand the world is through cold, hard data. Fashion week is most certainly not one of those times, but that didn’t stop us from asking our friend Lawrence Schlossman (of Sartorially Inclined and How to Talk to Girls at Parties fame) for some help in quantifying the Spring ’12 collections. Here, he quantifies the first day of Paris.

0 – Light bulbs on Thom Browne’s runway.
0 – Notch lapels from YSL. Peak everything.

2 – Elements necessary to get that Junya Watanabe S/S 2012 look – duck boots and overalls.
2 – Strong showings for colorblocking. Really, though? That’s it?

3 – Comme de Garçons jackets washed and shrunk to the point of exposed pocket bags.

4 – Articles of MMM clothing featuring patchwork bandannas.
4 – S/S turtleneck sightings.

5 – Dip dyed pieces from Phillip Lim.
5 – Elegantly bold suits at Lanvin.
5 – More collections pushing mandals.

6 – Jackets at John Galliano that would make Michael Jackson proud.

7 – Pops of mustard at Hermés.

9 – Lampshades on Thom Browne’s runway.
9 – Southern preacher looks at Dior Homme.

10 – Nehru collars from Kris Van Assche.

14 – Pieces of Sir Paul Smith’s tailored clothing that featured synthetic materials.

17 – Sleeveless suits on Thom Browne’s runway.

19 – Loud tops paired with black bottoms at Raf Simmons.

22 – S/S workboots from Ann Demeulemeester.
22 – Snapbacks at Givenchy. I guess Mr. West is rubbing off on Mr. Tisci.
