I’ve had a few emails since our last reader request which I’m still working through, one of which was a really lovely message from a reader called Ade who says: “I’ve seen a very nice mac in All Saints. At present, they only do a women’s version.”
Being the face of a Givenchy fragrance pretty much cements you as a style star (not that I would know but one must work on assumption when speaking of Britney-dating, ex-N*Sync stars!) Well, I was bitterly disappointed in Justin Timberlake’s outfit at the Fashion Rocks concert last week. JT wore a grey blazer from his new ‘William Rast’ range and a pair of hideous turn-up jeans with an odd silk tie- seemingly cut in half.
Is it just me who’s shocked by this lack of style sense? Vote in our poll below!
While potentially worrying and probably not at all a good sign, Andy Warhol’s ‘Death Scenes’ have always interested me. His principle was that by repeating the same image of a man impaled on a lamp-post (that’s just one of the prints,) death became strangely banal. This blazer might not be all blood ‘n’ guts (which with McQueen’s history is rather surprising,) but it is undeniably interesting. With city scenes and a fitted shape, this jacket could be worn at work, in the park, at a party and even to a music festival. I like that Matches put it with jeans for a modern edge and if I could afford the £258 price tag, I would go for a crisp white shirt and an Alber Elbaz-style floppy bow-tie. In faded, purple velvet. *Sigh*
Lining has been an interesting part of blazers for a while now, with inventive designers using it to showcase a contrasting colour or pattern. Comme Des Garçons have gone one step further with this lining print of an anime-like boxer. It’s the kind of the lining that seriously makes you consider walking around in the same pose the models doing above. You can get this from the usual outlets once they start stocking the A/W collections.
Brandish favourites D.I.E have recently sneaked out their A/W08 collection. Expanding on the pop culture theme, they’ve now included Andy Warhol amongst the influences for their tees. T-shirts aside, they’ve included shawl collars on check jackets, colour blocked jumpers and geometric print cardigans. View more of the collection after the jump.
This weekend sees Henley Regatta in full swing and if you’re heading down to Boris Johnson’s old constituency you’d better look the part. Comme des Garcons’ plaid jacket will look great teamed with a straw boater and some deck shoes and is perfect for lounging on the banks of the Thames.
Given Material Boy’s Topman Lens collection, you’d assume that every boutique would be snapping at his clothing. It’s an understatement to say that this hasn’t been the case. One of the only places to buy Material Boy is Bespoke Boutique and as luck would have it, they’re having their summer sale. The pick of the bunch is this double breasted jersey jacket.
Remember the linkup Justice annouced with Surface to Air a couple of months ago? Well the fruits of their labour have just gone up on the S2A online store.
Sometimes a bargain is too good to pass on, regardless of what season the clothing’s designed for. This Yoko Devereaux double breasted cardigan is currently going for $32, which is 75% off the retail price. Other bargains are this trench coat for $49 and this Queen print shirt for $17.
