Urban Western Couture

Kitsune 2011 Fall/Winter Collection is Inspired by Brokeback Mountain

— January 30, 2011 — Fashion
Before the jokes roll in, the Kitsune 2011 Fall/Winter collection looks pretty good for something inspired by the movie 'Brokeback Mountain.' The company describes the new line as a "refined urban cowboy" look, which is evident in some of the clothes. The use of flannel and cotton-filled jean jackets certainly reflects the motif well. Other clothes take a more casual urban look that fits the line just fine.

I don't know if cowboys are stylish, but hey, the Kitsune 2011 Fall/Winter collection says even they need to look good.
