Phi Spring/Summer 2010

Phi is one of the freshest new labels to bring edgyness into american sportswear. For Spring/Summer 2010, creative director Andreas Melbostad infused the collection with grunge, goth and bondage. This collection has similar elements that we saw on the runways of Givenchy, Gucci and Balmain. For more on Phi visit their website at http://www.phicollection.com/

Kanye Love

This is one of the many reasons I like Kanye West! Keeping it casual in a floor length fur, white tee, jeans and timbs. The Louis Vuitton Don's looks stay consistent and he never follows the standards of the fashion industry! He's pictured at the Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 show in Paris with girlfriend Amber Rose.

Casbia By Edmundo Castillo & Manuele Bianchi

When women's shoe designers Edmundo Castillo & Manuele Bianchi decided to launch a men's line called Casbia By Edmundo Castillo & Manuele Bianchi they got inspiration from where else? Their CLOSETS! The design duo was inspired to create a men's line because of their love for sneakers. Castillo is known for making women's shoes under his own name and is creative director for Italian shoe label Santoni. Edmundo was a 2001 CFDA Swavorski's Perry Ellis Winner for Accessory Design. Here's a sneak peak of the new line.

Brian Reyes Cruise 2010 Collection

Designer Brian Reyes is one of the most innovative new talents to enter fashion. Reyes collections embody youthful classics with an avant garde view and his Cruise 2010 collection was no different. The designer was inspired by elements of nature and how they connect to the human life. Mixing nature inspired prints with sportswear, this collection is bold enough to hit the mainstream and even makes a statement on the red carpet.

Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci has taken the house's Men's line and made it into something more edgy and mainstream from the previous collections. The Givenchy Men's line was resurrected in 2005 under designer Ozwald Boateng creative direction and was critically acclaimed for his expert tailoring and attention to detail. Several years later, the design went in-house and Tisci was chosen as the creative director for the label.

Here's a peek of the new Balmain Men's 2010 Campaign. Designer Christopher Decarnin infused the same military elements from the women's collection into men's, using distressing and staining on garments giving them a more worn in look.
