Not too long ago, I was groaning nonsensically about the lack of cohesiveness in fashion. To clarify, I wasn't suggesting that designers needed to gather together and decide on one particular trend to harp upon each season, although some years it seems as though this is exactly what they do. I just think that when you get to the end of a show and you have no idea what the designer's point of view is and/or you haven't seen anything new-- that's a problem.
Whether designers have been looking at the same art, reading the same books or just wishing they were anyplace but here, their spring 2009 men’s collections seem to have hit the same wall. They aren’t so much about real dreams and opinions as random thoughts.
