Something to look forward to -- at the men's fall-winter 2011-2012 European collections
If you think there's not much excitement about the men's shows coming up in Milan and Paris (other than some more wacky suit lengths from Thom Browne), well, think again. Our very own Adam Tschorn reports: "Based on the lineup of new and returning labels on the European calendar, one gets the distinct impression that the economic malaise of the last couple of seasons -- which saw luxury brands pairing down, scaling back, and opting for less expensive presentations, or in some cases, forgoing a spot on the schedule altogether -- may be waning."
