Fine jewellery is usually boring, while statement accessories are mostly never worthy of being rubbed against our royal, pearly white skin because of the cheap and downright tacky materials often used in making them.

This season is big on two things: nudes and denim on denim. But what about denim on denim ON DENIM? We’ve seen dozens of editorials featuring models in denim button-downs paired with denim jeans and we’re only getting used to that costume-y, I’m-so-rugged-denim-bottoms-just-aren’t-enough look. But here’s Prada taking it up another notch with this large denim tote blessed with the house’s world-famous logo.

Tom Ford releases its Spring Summer 2010 lookbook and as always, being the sartorial genius that Mr. Ford is (not quite on a first-name basis with him yet), we’re now looking at a couple of groundbreaking ideas for men’s formal wear. Who would’ve thought the print frenzy would creep its way into men’s suits?
The boldness. Is. Just. Inspired.
