I'm loving the 80's themed pleated pants

The AW12-13 collection from Costume National is showing exactly what we've been getting a†reaction to this pre-Fall...wearable fashion for men.This past Spring we saw a swing too far into femme fabrics and sihouettes that scared the customer off, and†new ideas emerging†for Fall from many designers seem to be a market correction.† 

I'm loving the 80's themed pleated pants, high-gloss leather pieces, versatile outerwear and black & white prints & stripes used in a way that compliments, but doesn't overtake.†The color usage is cohesive--black, navy†and ivory with a splash of intense blue.†This is supplemented by the use of textures and small patterns to create depth in the pieces.†Much like Rick Owens, this collection plays with proportion and silhouette, but still retains an understandability & wearability. There's something in this collection for everyone, including the guy who says "give me the whole look!"
