The Orient is Exploding

Fashion Week in Paris is over, but the grand verdict was the Costume Institute Gala in NYC which was a driving force behind men's fashion week this season!  Asian was definitely a major theme throughout Louis Vuitton with bold shades of red and a strong Chinoiserie pattern.  My personal favorite was a putty colored short suit with birds and gorgeous flowers - oh my God! I am in love!  Well, my other personal  must-have is Thom Browne with his Japanese influence with an actual tea room as part of his presentation - I can't even...!!!  Thom is a family fave, and he hasn't let us down as we've courted his collection for seasons.  Go see the MET exhibit and China:  Through The Looking Glass.  I cried over the Dior and YSL (mostly because I sold the same pieces that I owned) - damn my luck!
