Yves Saint Laurent Men S/S 09

Is androgyny the same as fickleness?

Can bravery be sensitive and sensitivity savage?

Sex is the original human nature that was man and woman and the union of the two of which the name survives but nothing else. The sexes were three because the sun, moon, and earth are three. Man was originally the child of the sun, the woman of the earth, and the man-woman of the moon, which is made of the sun and earth. (Jack Huston reads from Plato's Symposium by Aristophanes. Full runway show video below)

Does everything have a binary opposite?

With all the shades and tints and tones of gray, do blacks and whites still exist?

Male and female, light and shadow, boy and man, womb and world, tough and soft, edgy and smooth, scaly and unpredictable: soil and moon, sun and smoke.

The connection? Soft, light fabrics with masculine construction.

Watch the Yves Saint Laurent S/S 09 Men runway show video:

More than motion, videos create mood. Easier to swoon over a collection.

Speaking of androgyny, don't you think this season's men's Muse bag looks much better than the butch women's version?

The video for fall is not as great as next spring's, but worth a watch:
