UK’s ASOS Fall 2009 collection meshes together so many veritable styles from menswear’s archives, one would be hard-pressed to pinpoint any specific inspiration. Included are early 60’s American suiting, Holmsian trenches, late millenia Burberry trousers, Ralph Lauren early 80’s Navajo sweaters, and 70’s-inspired knits, with a healthy pastiche of early 90’s grunge. Yet with all the disparate styles, it still works. And because of the collection’s variety, walks down entirely different fashion lanes are possible–for example, the tweed coat can be paired with skinny purple jeans and a nylon windbreaker or with a gray cableknit sweater and tartan tie. Available online September 1, 2009.
