Buzzcocks ‘Buzzkicks': £80, Kick Hi Lumberjack: £70.

Brand hyping is usually dull PR fluff but at a Kickers presentation yesterday I learnt some Very Interesting Things I Didn’t Know Before. Here they are:

Will the Real Henry Holland Please SuperPoke Us?

Will Reid Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, News Leave a Comment

Grazia recently reported that Henry Holland has 662 friends on Facebook. However, upon closer inspection (and my quest to see if old Henners has uploaded his pic with our Catwalk Queen editor Gemma,) I found that there are two Henry Hollands on Facebook. And neither has 662 friends…

Giles Deacon

Fashionista is stating that Katie Grand’s new LOVE magazine (published by Condé Nast,) is a “beacon of hope for the dying magazine industry and its dwindling fashion counterpart.” Well, it may be a beacon of hope for the magazine industry but Grand and her brilliant team have decided to get a head start with a very low-key blog.

The masthead of the magazine was revealed today and a look through the blog revealed such gems as Giles Deacon posing with a pair of Scotch-Egg-Glasses (the ‘it’ accessory of next season?) and fashion editors Francesca Burns and Victoria Young with the likes of Simon Cowelland David Walliams!

Yesterday we saw Jamie Hince donning a rather hobo-chic look and today we hear that Tony Simm, a Gordon Ramsay lookalike (emm…not quite,) has come forward to tell the world of how he is being verbally attacked as a result of the famous TV Chef’s supposed-affair.

Simm, aged 50, tells the Daily Mail that “everyone used to like him, and being his double meant I’d get lots of good attention everytime I left the house. But since the news of him and his alleged mistress hit the headlines, I’ve been called a love cheat by about 50 angry women of all ages.”

Usually, I like to write these magazine posts with as much information and detail as possible. I’m no stranger to the old hour of uploading just to give you the full low-down on that Dazed & Confused issue with “Tecktonick”dancer Kevin. The US Vogue ‘Superman’ issue with Tom Welling was packed with great pictures that were up on our beloved Brandish within hours of their release!

However, sometime a hot story is worth posting even if the only information you have is a cover image…

Christophe Decarnin Jumps On The Menswear Bandwagon!

WWD has confirmed the widespread rumour that Christophe Decarnin is to design a menswear range as part of the Balmain label. Apparently, it will be launched at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris next January.

Decarnin has transformed the Balmain label into a fashion so on the edge it’s almost falling off and his collections have become a staple at each season’s Paris shows. The Balmain show of this season featured a Madonna soundtrack and rah-rah skirt haute couture that, in these times of economic crisis, looked set to be a bit of a failure. However, as is the fashion way, magazines have been calling in the collection left, right and centre and Fashionista has stated that it will no doubt be the same with Balmain Menswear.

Either way, I just want Christophe to know that he can send any samples in the direction of Shiny Towers for a full review (and road-test!)

Wish Room’s Man Bra… Taking Japan by storm?

admin News, Trends, Underwear & Swimwear 3 Comments

Apparently men all over Japan are getting literally getting into bras as the man-bra takes the country by storm.

I’m not convinced by the hype, the man-bra looks like something that would fail to appeal anyone other than underwear fetishists. This just seems like a opportunity for a gratuitous “lawks ain’t Japan just crazy” story as we hit a post-Obama lull.

Anyway, if you need more info on the moob-tackling undies, the silky bras retail for twenty quid and come in white, pink and black from the Wish Room site.

Giles Deacon‘s first ever menswear collection hit the shops yesterday, the 25-piece collection is made up of wearable wardrobe basics. T-shirts, jeans, jackets and shirts are all given the Giles touch with neon detailing and gold chains. This is good news for men’s fashion as it seems that every designer/high street collab now has a menswear range, and not a minute too soon.
