Ombre is one of those textile trends that can be absolutelythebestthingever or reallyreallybad, particularly in high contrast black and white and even more particularly on men. Where on a woman ombre can be ethereal yet graphic, Alberta Ferreti’s gorgeous cocktail dress being a perfect example, the gentleman wearing the ombre ensemble featured in Givenchy’s mostly good men’s collection for Spring 09 looks like a paint stirrer. A handsome one, but a paint stirrer all the same. Similarly, Alexander McQueen’s perfectly tailored suit with that garish white stripe down the middle hurts my little heart. Perhaps a more gentle gradient would help? Or maybe boys should just stick to jeans, t-shirts, skinny suits, and slouchy cardigans? Ah, only in a perfect world. HALEY
