What a start to a wonderful weekend!

It's going to be 60 degrees in New York, and I'm going to try my best to enjoy the spring-like temperatures with a walk through Soho, joining friends later in the evening for drinks and some fancy dancing time.

Hopefully the weather will boost flagging spirits and remind us that this -- the economy, this cold, slushy weather and bleak winter clothing -- this too shall pass. Bright colors and filmy spring-summer dresses are just around the corner!

How will you spend your weekend? Here are some wonderful links to carry you into the weekend...

Don't feel sorry for all the unemployed finance folk: I just read this fun article in the New York Observer about an ex-Goldman banker who has relocated to Buenos Aires and taken up male modeling. [via New York Observer]

The Business of Fashion brings us the latest gossip from Paris, and how the economy has taken a toll on popular but expensive darling, Decarnin for Balmain, not to mention the fate of Theyskens at Nina Ricci. [via The Business of Fashion]

Funky, cloudy disco style at Martin Margiela. [via A Shaded View on Fashion]

The Brits come to Paris and Cathy Horyn shows some love for the boys of Meadham Kirchhoff! (I digress, I digress-- but those leather jackets ~ drool!) [via On the Runway]

A lovely mix of black and greys against some gorgeous seasonally appropriate backdrops at The Coveted, along with peep-toe shoes... [via The Coveted]

And for the piece de resistance, Suzy Menkes's review of Lanvin from Paris, which I have to quote because the prose and the mood of the collection reminds me of Ezra Pound's short poem "In a Station of the Metro" ("The apparition of these faces in the crowd; Petals on a wet, black bough."):

Marching purposefully down the wet road of a runway, the women - mostly black clad but one in a scarlet suit - waved at the Lanvin audience.... It was a defining moment in the autumn 2009 season, when bias-cut tailoring, fur stoles circling the shoulders and boldly studded dresses with just a soup├žon of the 1980s spelt out the new fashion message: sensual sobriety.
