    I like the shoes in the third picture. But all pictures have waaaayyyyyyyyyyy too much camel in them ;-)

    I'm fed up with muted colours. I want Spring and that means green, preferably emerald.


    March 16, 2010 at 6:29 am

    Meh – Not liking this massive drive towards camel!

    However, we do like Stefanos time piece!!

    The narrow shoulders on the coats are great. Think the camel on camel the geezer is sporting is a little overkill though.

    what is it about spring that gives everyone the urge to rock a polished trench? whatever it is, i love it. it seems like the entire world looks chic.

    in other news, i really want that first woman's amazing clutch….

    I've been revisiting the archives and suddenly can't get enough of white jeans. I think I've been pummelled into submission!

    Camel may take some further brutality … :)

    Agree, camel is like black but much more soothing.

    I almost never comment. But I've been reading forever. I love this post. It is just amazing to me. I think the best thing you showcase here is jackets. I always see trenches from Paris or New York and want them so badly.

    Stefano Pilati has such a great eye for contrast and detail. The beading on his pockets are luxurious without being gaudy. The semi-concealed tattoos also give an air of mystery.


    March 16, 2010 at 7:40 am

    camel is very chic

    The cachenir sweater looks sooo comfortable and the camel color – i don't like it too much – is not boring on Stefano. The shirt gives him a feminine and sensual touch that i love too. It's a warm elegant not pretentious image but i prefer see the eyes instead of the dark glasses.

  28. Krishna

    March 16, 2010 at 8:17 am

    Stefano Pilati – one of the most stylish men around. I love the camel-on-camel, but even more, I love the way the colourful tattoo peeks out from under his sleeve.

    i love a good camel trench coat and camel and grey in my new go-to color combo (which was previously the exciting/original black and grey). while i think white is a bit too stark for camel, a nice pale grey seems really fresh.

    i also love stefano's being detail. camel and camel however just looks like…a camel.

    Is it just me-or is it easier to dress now than ever before? (Well, for me-the last 30 years!) What used to be called- outdated is now called vintage. What I´ve seen with your blog is that all styles go together and match. The person that wears it-pulls it off because they make it interesting. Fashion is all about personality and additude in the end.

    I love camel and I am so glad it is making a comeback. The last photo showing camel is my favorite. Must invest in a camel peacoat!

    I love particularly the first one (grey trousers + that clutch + those shoes), and Stefano Pilati is always absolutely flawless no matter what he wears! I love him (and I'm slowly falling in love with camel too, which is strange cause I've never been a huge fan)

    The girls look great. Not sure about the guy though: despite his YSL credentials that's camel overload. And what's happening with that shirt?


    March 16, 2010 at 11:22 am

    the camel and white is so darn chic! (not to mention the lovely tat peeking out from under the tan on tan manly inspiration – yum.)

  73. Libby K

    March 16, 2010 at 1:07 pm

    I think you have to be careful with camel. Part of its potential beauty is its luxury. A camel coat must be really well-cut from beautiful fabric. And needless to say, it must be clean. All these camel coats would look nothing but dingy and rumpled after too much wear and tear. If we're not careful with this camel trend, I'm afraid this is what we might be seeing on the street.
    Another thought–camel and white looks very sharp. How about camel and cream? That sounds delicious.

  74. grizzlesnort

    Usually not a fan of tattoos but this partial view under all this camel is fantastic.Pity I don't look good in beige even if we call it camel.

    Even if I haven't been waiting for designers to tell me to do, I cannot wait to wear Camel next season!
    I find it so classy & timeless.
    Great looks btw(not to sure about the mix camel and white though).

  78. Andrew

    March 16, 2010 at 2:46 pm

    It is a bit distressing that people who read a fashion photo blog lack the color vision to notice that camel does not actually go with ver dark jeans. It is not a bold transgression of rules. It is not a sophisticated mix that regular folks would never imagine. It is an ugly clash conceived either by someone with bad taste, bad eyesight or no other jacket of the appropriate weight.

    I love camel, but I truly look naked whenever I wear this colour. If I am wearing camel pants with a great belt, my lovely friends say "Nice belt but I think you forgot to wear pants." And if I have on a camel coat, then all I hear is "Whoa, where did you go? I can't see you? Oh, there you are. I couldn't make out your face against that coat. It all blends in." Thanks guys.

    Great Post!!! I love the looks of all these camel garments!!

    I think my favorite is the camel and white or the camel on camel. The guy really pulls this look off. Normally I am about color in an outfit. But I think this camel and camel look look sleek!

    Stefano Pilati is my style icon. His style is always great. I prefer the way he combines feminine and masculine elements in mens fashion. Not many men can do that…they are all too shy. His watch is a vintage Panthère de Cartier (ladies size) in yellow gold…here again. By the way, i love camel.

    The camel and grey work really, really well and it is very elegant (pic #1), but I am not so sure about pic #3 – the coat is great, the bag is ok, but do we think the denim works? I am not so sure.

    What is with the Camel and Grey picture? Are those sweats? I don't like jersey fabric for much and those pants are awful. I also dislike Stefano's shirt. All the Camel is wonderful, regardless.
