Henrik Vibskov’s Fantabulous Bicycle Music Factory collection

henrik vibskov.jpg

I’ve just stumbled across Henrik Vibskov’s menswear collection and on first glance it’s a bit intimidating but I’m intrigued by the brick print tank top and I love what he’s doing with madras. Individually I think the pieces are really strong and the Aztec/computer game pixellated knits are the height of geek chic.

Another day, another Fred Perry collaboration…

fpcollabo.jpg

This time it’s a Japan-only release, in tandem with Head Porter. Personally, FP is an iconic brand, despite some arguing it’s been devalued though a ‘high pikey uptake’ – I still think it should be a legal requirement for every boy to go out and get a classic cut polo once they turn 16 or something.

Top Five: Euroflash- Masculinity or Insecurity?

thirt.jpg

With guidebook and ability to say thank-you in tow, I was an innocent tourist. At least that was until I saw him from across the road. The letters emblazoned on his back in plush gold velvet shone with insecurity- “Vagina Lover.” Welcome to testosterone Euroflash-style.

Whyred finally have an online store

Whyred produced one of the best looking pea coats in the jacket’s 300 year history a couple of seasons ago (FACT.) After ringing everywhere from Sweden to US to find one, and coming back empty handed, I was enraptured to hear they’ve now set up a webstore. Which should make things a lot easier this winter.

Trends: Watch & Wear-Public School Drool

bout2.jpg
Out of show season, it gets just that bit harder to predict the trends. However, in typical fashion, the industry moves on; someone gets a haircut, a designer does a high-street collaboration, Amy Winehouse is paid $1 million to do a Louis Vuitton gig. In the case of April, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lacoste. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.

Oliver Spencer Navy Blue Check jacket

Checks are in. (Slightly) Asymetrical
buttoning is in. Navy is always in. So why not mix all three and make an amazing
jacket? Oliver Spencer have done just that with this Navy blue check
belted jacket
that retails at £345. I felt it necessary to state the price
early because, if you’re anything like me, you’ll want this jacket. Right now.

Comme Des Garcons x Chromehearts

cdg_x_chromehearts.jpg

Whilst collaborations are pretty standard,
it’s still interesting to hear of a Comme
Des Garçons and Chromehearts jewellery collection
. Looking at the
collection, it seems the idea of a CDG and Chromehearts collaboration is a lot
more interesting than the actuality of it. The shirts were almost too boring
for words – apart from the words I just typed – and the jewellery is good but dull.

Dolce and Gabbana Watch

Watches that ask philosophical questions
are the new black/brown/whatever the old thing was. If you’ve ever wanted
a D&G watch but felt they were missing that intangible ‘it’ factor, then
this Dolce
& Gabbana High Security watch
is the timepiece for you. It manages the
amazing feat of asking ‘why not today’ whilst showing the time and the date. All that’s missing is a
free call to a life coach.

Ute Ploier Shorts from b Store

UTE SHORTS.jpg

From Marc Jacobs to Topman, McQ to Uniqlo, short shorts have undoubtedly secured their place as the menswear item of the season – and possibly the year. If I said they needed an adopter than we at Brandish are basically an orphanage. We have given you examples of short shorts in a spectrum of colours, fabrics and prints and Jason even took it to a political platform!
