Although everything in the world of magazine publishing (specifically fashion magazine publishing) is marketed as the big shebang, there are few issues as admirably prestigious as those published in September. For the changing tides of fashion, September is the time to truly celebrate the Fall collections, wedged right between the forefront of the season itself and the premiere of the Spring successors. With that in mind, the staffs behind our country’s glossiest glossies attempt to span hundreds of collections’ worth of material into concise statements of the season’s philosophy. This year, of course, a storm cloud hangs in the balance over the traditional September parade, as evidenced by the thinner volumes offered up this year. But the effect of the economy has been channeled into a whole new focus on concise and valuable fashion. With a focus on restraint but a resolution to persevere, the magazines that have weathered the storm so far have offered up some truly lust-worthy content.

As painful as it is for me to consider the fact that August is nearly imminent and these few Summer months may soon be coming to a close, the publishing industry is not so concerned with my denial. That’s why they’re choosing to move forward with their August issues, most of which will we focusing exclusively on Fall clothing. Pause for collective sigh.

My dear, dear friends. Neglect is a felony, yet it’s an accurate word to describe my misdeeds as of late. Yes, I am in fact referring to my neglect of the magazine cover posts. I’ve skipped the past two months; and I can only assume that you are very scared, upset, and angry. That’s perfectly natural. But there is a happy ending to this bitter emotional tale. I’m bringing them back! That’s right, I am once again assuming the position of your at-home newsstand. The only difference is you can’t leaf through the National Enquirer to hear about Lindsay and Samantha. Maybe you should thank me?

My my, yesterday seemed like a busy day, but I really have no idea what I’m getting myself into today! Yours truly (I think I’m gonna pretend to be Andre Leon Talley for the remainder of Fashion Month. Life With Andre makes me giggle uncontrollably.) has some favorites today, so perhaps it’ll be a little easier to get through.
In a season where designers are striving to be bankable, Michael Kors took a tongue-in-cheek approach to redefining the classics. Trends of the moment like the strong shoulders soon to be everywhere made appearances, but the collection was decidedly restrained. Those “staples” like the trench coat, investment-worthy skirt suit, and little black dress were sure to be found. But gimmicks like a detached lapel (admittedly effective) were worked into the pieces lest they be called boring.

Well folks, it looks like it’s that time again. It seems like just yesterday I was proudly sending off the January post–it brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it. But we have more important topics at hand, so let’s get to them.
