According to Belstaff Spring/Summer 2009 runway show, Taffeta is back. The shiny fabric made an appearance at the runway show in the shades of black, deep blue, green, red and khaki. It`s a breath of a fresh air where we saw a lot of leather and impeccable tailored suits for the last few seasons. This is obviously for active , rough, outdoor kind of gentlemen who still want to do all thing dangerous and dirty while keeping themselves in style.
As for me, I wore my favorite taffeta black jacket with yellow and red stripes at the side by Vivre with a detachable fur-collar from other jacket because it`s still winter here in Tokyo though the spring/summer 2009 show was like 2 months ago. Keep it sleek with Jean Paul Gaultier glove and black ankle high boots and blue jeans by Levi`s. When I wear blue jeans I always love to pair it with a standout color belt like in this case a red metal-trimmed belt because it somehow make your body proportion looks good. Your upper body and lower body kind of separated and you know exactly where your lower body started thus make you legs look longer.
