Project Runway is one of my all-time fave shows, so I was quickly hooked on the spin-off Under The Gunn, featuring teams of emerging designers mentored by past contestants. The early front-runner was Shan Keith, a gifted designer from St. Louis - holla! I felt he should have won solely on the basis of his showstopping sequin top for the "real woman" challenge, but in a shocking twist, his model was allergic to the top and unable to wear it. (Shan insists that the poor woman really did break out in hives). In true Project Runway fashion, he whipped up a substitute outfit in an hour and still won the challenge. Don't ask me why he didn't win the overall show, but it hasn't stopped him from continuing to design amazing garments.
Shan Keith debuted his collection at a runway show appropriately titled "Boundless." Held at the swanky Plush, the men's and women's designs highlighted his signature fearlessness with prints and textures. Check it out:
Always a fan of jumpsuits and rompers, I love the chic accents and gold embellishments on Shan's pieces.

Animal print has been called the new "neutral" given its widespread appeal - but there's nothing neutral about Shan's take on the trend. That middle sweater has my name written all over it!

Normally, I'm not too excited about menswear. I mean, I am a woman - and a rather girly one at that. But what cool looks! Definitely for a bold, confident man who wants to stand out.
