Skyfall suffers Oscar nominations “Best Picture” snub in favour of Django Unchained and Lincoln

Gerald Lynch Entertainment, News Leave a Comment

It seems both critical acclaim and box office record breaking isn’t enough to get a Best Picture Oscar nomination these days, as Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond film released in the series’ 50th anniversary year failed to be considered alongside the year’s best films. This morning’s announcement of the 85th Academy Awards nominations instead saw Armour, Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Les Misérables, …

When You’re a Boy: Simon Foxton exhibition opens Friday

cchapman Entertainment Leave a Comment

SimonFoxton.jpg

This is officially: A Very Big Deal. Not only is uber-stylist Simon Foxton one of the most influential people in menswear but this exhibition is also one of the first to focus on the role of the stylist as opposed to the photographer. And it’s about mens fashion: double whammy! As if our readers needed any reminding, menswear is like the new womenswear. And its only taken several millenia of social evolution to focus ourselves on the fact that men are peacocks obsessed with our appearance. Anway, enough with the sociology lecture.

Film related fashion: Public Enemies

cchapman Accessories, Entertainment Leave a Comment

Depp_Oxblood_hat.jpg

On first impressions, current gangster blockbuster Public Enemies starring messrs Depp and Bale may seem to offer little in the way of fashion inspiration. Being so familiar, the gangster genre is not one that can shed a light on looks we may have forgotten about or didn’t know before. But, as ever with menswear, its all about the detail.

And with this film its the hats – fedoras to be precise. Wonderful New York blog all plaid out gives a fascinating view of Optimo, the classic brand who created the said fedoras for the movie. One of those brand insights that leaves you yearning for bygone eras of quality and craftsmanship. I particularly love the detail about the oxblood hat that Depp wears being a colour that “In certain lights looks black in others dark brown”. With fashion for autumn being largely about a certain restrained luxury, details like these should be treasured as inspiration for the coming months.

How far is TOO far? Taking inspiration from Womenswear…

Will Reid Accessories, Entertainment, Trends Leave a Comment

IMG_8378.jpg

Over the last few years, with the trends having covered skinny jeans, unisex mods, sexually-liberated hippies, shoulder pads, guy/girl jumpsuits and the his/her Eighties where basically anything went, I have tried my hand at many trends that tread the fine line between menswear and womenswear.

This photo recently appeared on Facehunter and, while originally in awe of this fashionisto’s rose accessory, I began to wonder if it would be one step too far and throw me into the realm of uncomfortable dressing…

“The parties tonight are great, but they don’t compare to three days ago, when I sat by the Seine on my own and smoked cigarillos. It’s my favorite thing in the world. I smoke this brand La Paz–they’re cheap but it’s what I always buy. And then, I peed into the Seine. It’s the best thing I did all week.”
