if Tom Ford and Raf Simons had a lovechild..
it would be Tô Lang-Nam. I saw these images from the AW 09 ad campaign on Susie's blog, and fell in want instantly. To say that I'm a massive fan of menswear inspired womenswear is a serious understatement. These pieces have the sharpness and sexiness of a Ford suit and the clean lines and elegance of a Jil Sander collection (designed by Raf Simons), two of my favourite designers. But they also have a bit of cheekiness in their inspired by Grey's Anatomy - the curved seams and black-on-black shaped muscular inlay are whimsical, defining, sexy, and different. Definitely a designer to look out for.
