NEW YORK, Jul 30, 2008 / FW/ — The press notes said, “Orthodox’s spring 09 is a collection for a man at his highest, masculine, intellectual and effortlessly sexy self.” To a self-respecting feminist, it sounds egotistical; yet on the other hand, the ‘weaker sex’ is as guilty or perhaps even more guilty’ of pursuing beauty and attractiveness than her male counterpart.
Ever since the birth of the metrosexual (though the term now leaves a bad taste in a fashionista’s mouth), men started gravitated towards fashion and being dressed well. Again, quoting, Orthodox’s press notes it says that the label “delivers the future to the tastemakers of today, by offering luxury and novelty to a world thirsty for change.”
The collection is wearable, even covetable to a certain degree, but the press notes might have exaggerated a bit in the sense that there is really no innovation or the highly anticipated change in men’s dressing that will rock the world.
The collection is new at best and a proposal for sensible dressing, but it is not groundbreaking.
