chris benz

This quirky guy has made a bigger fan out of me with his fall 2008 collection. Inspired by "a funny old woman pulling wrinkled clothes from 50 years ago out of a suitcase," Benz used some inspired color combos to brighten up goofy (in a good way) little outfits.

Above: Those pants! That top! The colors! The layers! So good.

Above: Quirky-cool at its best, down to the glasses (note: not Wayfarers).

Above: Really, this guy has a sense of color that I adore, even if I'm not sure I could pull off this coral fur collar.

Above: It looks like vintage, sure - but it's a great cardigan, and it's cool pairing.

Above: The buttons are a great detail on the pants - pants that, by the way, are all SO full in the leg. I mean, I'm not going to throw out my skinny jeans, but I am so on board with the wide, menswear-y look.

Imagine this: Some awesome chick wearing this dress at some high-profile event.
Reporter: "Who are you wearing?" Awesome chick: "Chris Benz." Me (thinking): You are way more hip than Mischa Barton in Alexander Wang, I don't care what anyone says.
