By Isabelle on April 11th, 2007

Wonderjock

Why should women get all the curve boosting technology? It’s tit for tat in the body fakery stakes as Aussie Bum have come up with their Wonderjock technology that lifts and enhances your ‘area’. There’s no padding as Wonderjock designer Sean Ashby explained: "The design of the underwear, separates and lifts. The fabric cup
protrudes everything out in front instead of down toward the ground. There is no padding, rings or strings." Selling 50,000 in it’s first week the Wonderjock pants have proved incredibly popular and at just £8.50 it’s little wonder.

By mofgimmers on April 11th, 2007

Nike_carl_reissureMost lightweight jackets doing the rounds at the moment are in sombre khakis and shades of greys. For those of you who are a little more daring, you should be looking toward this great Nike Carl Reissure Jacket.

It’s retailing for £75 and available from Urban Outfitters. For those of you less daring, the jacket also comes in black, but it’s the red one that will catch the eye.

Cheap Adidas trainers and clothing?

By mofgimmers on April 11th, 2007

Adidas_gazelleHardened eBayers will no doubt be aware of this useful trick, but some of you might just be paying over the odds for your footwear! You should know that Adidas is a German brand (founded by Adi Dassler… hence the name) so where is the best place to look for your three stripes? In Germany of course!

Most people go straight to eBay.com or eBay.co.uk when looking to bid, but how many of you look to eBay.de (the German eBay) or eBay.fr (the French one obviously). Looking on the German eBay reveals a treasure trove of very cheap Adidas gear, much of it not available on these shores! Don’t be afraid of the language barrier either. If you’re looking on the German site click the Diesen Artikel Beobchten which means ‘watch this item’, log into the English version, go into My eBay, Items I’m Watching and BINGO! There’s you item! Happy hunting.

House of Holland piss take

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Hohtee
Fashionista have posted this hilarious tribute to the House of Holland tees conceived by blogger Gary Littley. Now they did have some hoo-ha before about Topshop ripping Holland off, and apparently fake House of Holland t-shirts are cropping up all over the place but the joke one is surely my favourite. I think the next spin-off should be a children’s car game where you have to come up with more t-shirt slogans. Although perhaps without the sexual references.

Martin Margiela watchstrap bracelet

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Mmbracelet
It’s a lot of money to pay for a joke, but this watchstrap bracelet from Browns is pure Martin Margiela po-faced humour with it’s face-less watch bezel. The mysterious designer has never been photographed in public so I can’t help but think of his face every time I see this bracelet. The bracelet will set you back £155, and I think it would be a little ridiculous to wear but I’ve fallen in love with the concept. How’s about £2.50 for the concept Martin?

Filippa K lace-ups

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Filippak
Filippa K is a name to watch at the moment, the Swedish designer’s latest collection is at the forefront of the new minimalism. One of my favourite items are these soft grey leather lace ups. Somewhere between an ankle boots and a shoe (perhaps the men’s equivalent of a schboot?) they look very unassuming but the tinge of lilac in the grey gives them a refined je ne sais quoi. Filippa K has stores across Scandinavia, and is stocked in stores in the rest of the world.

The Sartorialist snaps New York Easter Parade

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Easterparade
Every Easter in New York they have a wonderful Easter Parade, but unlike the overblown Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade the Easter Parade is an altogether more genteel affair. Donning their finest hats and suits people parade down Manhattan’s streets looking very sophisticated. The Sartorialist had some wonderful pictures up last year, and this year the pictures are just as good. The images capture New York and the pleasure of dressing up brilliantly.

Summer looks for you to shop this weekend

By Isabelle on April 5th, 2007

Matalannewlook

This might be the last thing on your mind if you’ve planned to booze it up but Easter Weekend is the perfect time to stock up on new summer clothes. The overall looks on the high street are fresh and casual with hints of formal wear in accessories and tailoring. White is quite big, the New Look suit on the right is very cool, and after the jump French Connection have got an equally spanking outfit in pale tones. I think Matalan have obviously been reading my post on the René Lacoste shoes because they’ve got the retro french sportsman look down to a t. River Island are sharpening up their act with some great pieces for this season, and it’s a great place to head for a more street look, see after the jump, right.

What’s Hot: Summer Swimwear

By Isabelle on April 5th, 2007

Swimwear1

Villebrequin’s gaudy print trunks are de rigeur amongst the wealthy and the well-bred; they’ve been spotted on Tony Blair and Simon Cowell but don’t let that put you off. Wear with a polo shirt, deck shoes, knotted jumper and a sense of irony. For something a bit sexier Orlebar Brown’s fitted shorts cling to every curve. If you fancy something even smaller Sloggi do an Aruba mini brief which I’m not going to show here for my eye’s sake. See after the jump for some blue checked shorts, lifeguard trunks, gingham swim shorts and OTT gold trunks I dare someone to wear.

Shooting TVs Tee

By mofgimmers on April 5th, 2007

ShootingtvsWe all know how dire TV can get. Whether Gillian McKeith foraging around in some poor sods stools or yet another property programme telling us about houses that we can’t afford, by and large, it’s an infuriating business.

Elvis used to deal with bad TV by shooting it. Of course, we aren’t all wealthy enough to go through 365 tellies a year, so get your own back on the box with this fine Shooting TVs Tee. It’s 100% cotton, available in the featured red as well as a nice dark blue and retailing at £28. It’s handwash only so it might be one you want to keep for best. Looks great and available to buy by clicking here.

René summer pumps from Lacoste

By Isabelle on April 3rd, 2007

Reneshoe

I’m in love with these Lacoste ‘René’ pumps from Office (£49.99), I’ve been saying ‘Oh René’ over and over again in my head in the style of Allo’ Allo’. You can’t beat them for retro simplicity, they will look great with some grey slacks and a polo shirt for a relaxed summer look. Taking your style cues from René Lacoste himself, France’s tennis champion from the ’20s and ’30s is a much better idea than using say Wayne Rooney or Freddie Flintoff for your sartorial inspiration.
