Recap of the Moment: Skinned!

Ed. Note: I added a survey tab just for you, dear readers! The first one's me. Enjoy!

Cropped tops from Frankie Morello, Calvin Klein; Dolce & Gabbana's manties; Bottega Veneta; Frankie Morello's beach set

It's too soon to predict a mass following, but runways in Milan have an obsession with flaunting some skin. And we're talking about the guys here.

Cropped is the mot du jour at
Calvin Klein where Italo Zucchelli made clear that serious abs are the newest accessory for Spring. He has revived the chopped T-shirt since.

For the venerable British label,
Burberry, it's more about mesh shirts paired with a jacket (motorcycle, trench, blazer). It's very military, but it also has that party boy playing peekaboo feeling.

Of course, man-cleavage a.k.a. heavage is taking full force.
Bottega Veneta did an easy, breezy, slouchy take on that. Meanwhile, Dolce & Gabbana is going for manties, and Frankie Morello focused on beachwear--and an arguably not-even-close-to-a-T-shirt shirt.

Ladies, if next Spring isn't your season, I don't know what is! Drool for more at And a note, please take these trends with a pinch (or gallon) of salt.

NICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Excited, much? Well, yes. I am excited! Your fashion posts make me excited! And those guys. UMF! Hahahaha.

As for my Lakers celebration. Well my friends and I went out and had some drinks at a bar. It was crazy, Nico. Two days later, I still couldn't believe they won. It took me days before it finally sank in!

How are things in the land of Nico? :)

The chopped t-shirt looks so hot on these models but I don't think I will ever dig that kind of clothing on flesh-and-blood men.
