D&G F/W 2009/2010 Military Jackets Online

While “window” shopping today, I went onto the D&G online store and was pleasantly surprised to find two military jackets from the F/W 2009/2010 show featured on their site.  The jackets that came out of this collection are so beautiful…the whole runway show can be seen in video or picture format on the D&G site…this collection definitely goes down in my books as a spectacular one to remember…

The first of these two jackets is retailing for $1475.00 USD, the second one for $1580.00 USD.  Too pricey for me!  I’m pretty sad about that.  I wish I could own either one…the embellishments on both are excellent — the curvilinear contrast stitching on the arms/forearms, the gold buttons with insignia, and the chevrons…I like that attention to detail has been given to the construction of the back of both jackets as well…  I think I’m in love.  Unrequited love…  Oh well…perhaps YOOX, which powers the D&G online store, will carry jackets from this collection once the season passes.

Etiqueta Negra Launches Online Store

I first heard about Etiqueta Negra when I read of their New York store opening at the end of 2008.  A leading supplier of  menswear in its home country, Argentina, the Lafayette Street store opening signified the company’s entry into the US markets.  I remember seeing images of the storefront and store interior, and making a mental note to check it out in person the next time I was in the city.  However, I’ve now received notice that they have launched an online store.  Per The Shophound, the label has been described as “Argentinian Tom Ford.”  I also think it’s a very compatible answer to H&M’s COS division…which, who knows when if ever it’ll hit stateside.  The collection is consistently clean and sharp and gives the sense of modern wear-to-work with taste and quality.  “Etiqueta Negra” literally translates into “Black Label” in English, and I find the minimal name punctual and very suited to the collection.

I particularly like these monk-strap style shoes.  Unfortunately, I cannot find them online for purchase.  They are a part of the Spring 2009 collection…so if it’s Fall 2009 here, wouldn’t that translate to Spring 2009 down there across the equator?  Regardless, I suspect their online store is an edited-down selection of their offerings…I’m particularly taking a liking to this duffle, it looks smart and tasteful for the man who wishes to travel in style but without garnering attention to his travel luggage — cause we all feel we need to give our LV Keepall a rest every so often — at $420 USD, the duffle is a very reasonable pricepoint, especially since it too, is canvas and leather.
