    • Thomas

      Some of the pieces are kitschy, but there’s actually a lot to like in this collection.

      • Carly Clement

        I agree! it is one of my favorite menswear collections I have seen so far.

    • RussellH88

      I like the simpler, more graphic pieces. The crazy prints aren’t doing anything for me.

    • Gatto Nero

      Come for the stripes — stay for the explosions.

    • Patrick Cleary

      That striped suit is amazing.

    • lecoffeeaddict

      Quickly glanced at the third image down and thought “Shit, NO, codpieces are NOT becoming a thing again.”

      Alas, it is a sleeve.

      • smayper

        I thought, “Penis with little beady eyes”

    • Anna

      I love the first suit and the striped bomber. No to the rest.

    • Sarah

      Some of this stuff is actually pretty neat. I don’t feel the yellow paint splatters, though.

      • Kitten Mittons

        It seems miles ahead of what we’ve seen the last week or so. At least for my tastes.

        • Sarah

          Definitely. If you mixed some of this stuff with more muted pieces you’d look cool and modern. Maybe not the MAKE ART NOT WAR ones or the explosions, but I really like the tie-dyes and most of the jackets.

          • Thomas

            I interpreted the underwear as saying, “Fuck war. Have sex, that’s art!”

            • Sarah

              Looks like “LET’S ART FUCK WAR” to me, which is weird. Like, what’s art fucking? Or, is it a verb? Because what is it “to art”? I want to, in any case.

            • Kathy

              Art fucking is what Gaga does.

            • Sarah

              Art does not want to sleep with Gaga. Art wishes you to arrange a fake “emergency” phone call so Art can leave.

            • Kathy

              I feel like Art.

            • Sarah

              You are not alone!

            • evave2

              Sarah, GOD bless you. That kid in the underwear just stuck out for me. Oops, I didn’t mean it like that. I am sincere.

              WHAT was done to these young men’s hair, every single one of them have half their hair standing at attention. Very strange.

            • Thomas

              I always thought the “Reverse Warholian” that she talked about was a sex position.

            • Kathy

              I had to delete my comment. It was too tacky. I get that way when talking about Gaga.

            • Kitten Mittons

              Oh, but if we can’t be tacky here, then WHERE, darling?

            • conniemd

              I wish I’d said that :)

            • marlie

              I was just about to say that “to art” is what Gaga does, but this is SOOO much better.

            • Kent Roby

              I assume the penis would be an implied comma, therefore it would be “LET’S ART, FUCK WAR”. Of course, if the phrase were on the back of the band, the rectum (terminal part of colon, i.e “semi-colon”) would give it more sense grammatically. Meanwhile, we’re getting anti-war messages along with bomber jackets, so the whole thing is very confusing.

            • Sarah

              Excellent parsing! Now that you mention it, that IS rather confusing. Or is there a deeper implication that blowing up stuff IS art? (Assuming you fuck it first, of course).

            • Anna

              That sounds like something James Franco would’ve said in This Is the End (or anytime, really).

    • Jessica Freeman

      I really love that first suit, which seems a bit out of place next to the explosions and graphics.

      I’m sure the model in the little underwear was thrilled he got chosen for that ‘garment’.

      • Kent Roby

        But haven’t we all found ourselves in line at the grocery, only to realize that we left the house wearing nothing but our “let’s art fuck war” underwear and sandals? Or is that just me?

        • lecoffeeaddict

          Really wishing I could up-vote this a few more times.

        • FibonacciSequins

          Only in my dreams.

          • Gatto Nero

            Oops — should have read down first. Likewise.

        • Anna

          DYING.

        • Jessica Freeman

          No no, I’m sure this has happened to me plenty as well.

        • Gatto Nero

          Sounds like one of my recurring dreams.

    • Wink

      Pick out the few good pieces and just ignore the rest.

    • Kent Roby

      I love that striped suit so much (with jacket and pants worn separately); the rest: not so much.

      • FibonacciSequins

        Worn separately, each piece has potential to be seriously fabulous.

      • marlie

        Hell, I want to see someone rock it on the red carpet. But it has to be just the right person, because the stripes on the jacket and pants have to line up perfectly.

        • Anna

          I’d love to see it on Matt Smith.

          • marlie

            YES. He’d be the perfect guystar to wear that suit.

    • Danielle

      LET’S ART FUCK WAR indeed.

      • Kent Roby

        I’ve been doing that ever since my dear grandmother told me those exact words, may she RIP.

    • Kathy

      Maybe I’m just in a better mood today, but I love the mosaic jackets and the striped suit.

    • LJCdoc

      What does it mean about the men’s wear collections lately that I can look at something with EXPLOSIONS and STATUE EYES and think, “yeah, less craptastic than a lot of stuff recently has been”?

      • demidaemon

        It means that you have stayed sane, despite the insanity you have viewed. Also: that you have taste.

    • WendyD

      That striped suit deserves better than to have walked with the rest of that collection.

    • Alyssa

      I like the striped suit and the mirror-looking mosiac jackets a lot! Not really digging the stuff with faces on it.

    • dmkava

      that suit is everything

    • MilaXX

      I think I like about 30% of this collection. You have to really pick to find the wearable pieces. Love that striped suit, but so many of these prints are just crazy. Again the footwear is the true winner here.

    • RescueMe23

      There are pieces that can be pulled out and used – but I still laugh when I think of the men I know wearing any of it..

    • FibonacciSequins

      Dudes like to see explosions, not wear them.

      Another case of nice silhouettes, wacky patterns. I hope someone wears that suit on a red carpet, I want to see it in the wild.

    • Starts with K

      Ditto what everyone is saying about the striped suit. It is everything. I also love the striped motorcycle-style jacket.
      Let’s hope paint splatters at the pants hem don’t become a thing. For some reason that irritated me the most.

    • Noah

      Is that… a war zone as a print? *THROWS ROCKS*

      • conniemd

        I was thinking the same thing. Looked like smoke after places were bombed. The first one looked like fires. Bad, bad, bad, not wearable art.

      • Mr. J.

        I think those are stills from the Antonioni movie “Zabriskie Point.”

        • KinoEye

          Really? *Goes to Google Images* You may just be right, though it’s hard to tell when that poncho isn’t closed. Kind of an odd choice for a design motif, if that’s what it is.

          • Mr. J.

            That dreadful film is beloved by hipster cineastes….it’s so cool and mindless, and the images, man, the images!!!
            Subject: Re: New comment posted on Frankie Morello Spring 2015 Menswear Collection

            • KinoEye

              Because it’s Antonioni, man. He’s become one of those filmmakers that’s above criticism for certain people. But no matter how good L’Avventura and La Notte and some of the rest are, that one is weak. From the great Roger Ebert: “This is such a silly and stupid movie, all burdened down with ideological luggage it clearly doesn’t understand, that our immediate reaction is pity. His earlier films have made us think of Antonioni as vulnerable; he shouldn’t have exposed himself like this.”

            • Mr. J.

              Right on, Mr. Ebert. I would only say that Zabriskie Point isn’t weak; it’s terrible–in an extremely rare class of terribleness.

      • Kitten Mittons

        I think that poncho jacket may have a tornado causing destruction, too. War, natural disasters, did they forget about pestilence?

        Debbie Downer Does Design.

      • Kent Roby

        And just TRY to get past airport security in that.

    • smayper

      Let’s art, but let’s not make scary nipple-eyed T-shirts.

    • QuietHarper

      Wow. Preppy with paint splatters. Actually, some of it looks wearable, especially if you paired it with something a little more toned down. It could be really fabulous, But I still want to take a basket of sandwiches to most of these shows and feed the poor, starving waifs.

      • conniemd

        It looks like they starve themselves so they can have sculpted cheekbones. Just wear the Angelina implants for Malificient.

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      Designing menswear must be so unrewarding. You have all these great ideas and no human man ever chooses to wear them.

      • mjude

        thank you for saying that, I have been trying to come up with something about menswear. I am over it.

      • Wink

        Most guys aren’t adventurous enough (in their fashion choices) to even attempt this stuff. Besides, no one likes it when people point and laugh when you enter a room:)

    • Nancer

      Meh. And not just because most of the models look like preteens.

    • Kristi Mitchell

      The pants on numbers 5 & 8 look like they took their dogs for a walk and the dog pissed on their legs instead of the tree. . .

    • marlie

      That first suit… MUST HAVE NOW. Actually, I’ll take everything in that black, blue, and white striped pattern, and the rest can go… anywhere else.

    • MissusBee

      A lot of this doesn’t look as odd as it ought to. Maybe because it’s so sharp to balance out the crazy. The suits are really fun. Look forward to seeing them in some non-standard guyvertorials soon.

    • BlairBear

      I love waistband activism

      • Gatto Nero

        The personal is political.

        • BlairBear

          I think his position merits careful inspection

      • Kent Roby

        I’m totally gonna come out with a line of underwear that says “Make Love, Not Whore”. Of course, I’ll have to fit that in with my “part-time draping professor” duties at a Dallas design school.

        • BlairBear

          Honestly I think Versace and Cavalli should stick to their strengths and design underwear and show entire mens underwear shows because that’s what this world needs

        • kimmeister

          The sad thing is, you’re going to come across people who think “war” and “whore” are pronounced the same.

    • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

      You guys are great about always picking the best/most intriguing pieces for the header image. No doubt one of the secrets to your success! I really enjoy the post-modern pastiche by way of the 60s aesthetic they’ve got going here. That t-shirt with the classical sculpture and the yellow paint splatter is fabulous, rather than pay $300 to get one for the hubs I may just screenprint one myself. It strikes me that this is what Moschino was trying to do, at a more successful level: commodification of commercial art blended with fine art. They just stopped short of fine art and actually interpreting anything. Now that I’ve held forth pretentiously for the day, I’ll be on my way.

    • Audrey Lee

      I really enjoy a lot of this. Particularly the pieces that take the printed patterns and break them up like 11, 12, and 13. I also dig the sound wave looking patterns and the KILLER striped suit. This is a far stronger showing than much of what we’ve seen so far from the other collections.

    • PinkyK

      LOVE! That (1st & last) striped suit! The rest…not so much.

    • Shawn EH

      Your clothes, they wound me! And your models, all growed up Children of the Damned!

    • kimmeister

      The huarache oxfords are a little weird, but still wearable.

    • quiltrx

      I kind of like the shattered prints, and I like the color palette. But a lot of this is bordering on silly.

    • BobStPaul

      I think this is one of the better realized collections we’ve seen. I actually like most of it except for the matching tops and bottoms. A couple of the suits are okay but for the most part they’re a bit overwrought.

    • sleepycat

      LOVE this. I love the soundwave/tiedye prints.

    • traceyishere

      Get me those paint splattered pants

    • demidaemon

      The black and white stuff isn’t so bad. The pants fit well, so there is that too. However, I kind of hate the majority of the prints. But at least it’s not batshit crazy.

    • t bell

      No, no, and no. The white pants or the black pants are the only wearable items.

    • Melmmmendes

      I feel like they had some freshman graphic design student play with Photoshop and then printed it on a suit.

    • FridaStaire

      That first suit is heaven. But did anyone really need to see that child naked?

    • Dave Hime

      Okay, the 80s are back. Very WilliWear.

    • Mona_Visa

      Andy Warhol in everything.

    • Daxx2513

      Actually had to come out of “lurkey-loo-land” to comment on this collection. Definitely one to be picked apart and worn with basics, but there are some pieces that really hit the mix of masculine, but expressive, that really appeals to me.

    • altermyego

      I too love the striped suit especially because it could’ve easily gone so wrong, but it didn’t. I also think the fabric is a big part of what makes this suit so spectacular. Anyone know what it’s made of?

    • JynxTheCat

      It is HILARIOUS to me to see what a hard time designers are having utilizing these photo textiles! Also those are the tiniest nipples I think I have ever seen.
