In what has been a generally banal Fall 2008 Fashion Week, Miuccia managed to inspire and look fresh, while bringing back dickies and lace in the process. Of course, the bags are beautiful, especially in this honey brown.
Speaking of brown leather, I was shocked to read Bill Cunningham's news flash that brown is the new black in men's footwear. Perhaps I've beem living in my little war-era bubble for too long, but honestly, when were brown shoes anathema? GQ recently highlighted the Barker Black two-tone spectator with a cuffed pant. That's a great vintage look to write headlines over. But brown shoes? That ain't news that's fit to print, Bill.
