Andre 3000 was interviewed by Simon Mills recently in the Guardian talking about the fashion tribes at his school, his influences and dress sense as part of OutKast.
Jordan Askill, a designer whose work for Dior Homme and Ksubi has cemented him as a name to keep an eye on, has launched a jewellery collection at Dover Street Market (DSM.) Dover Street Market is a fashion emporium founded by Rei Kawakubo and her husband and it has become known for its artistic installations, exclusive lines and designer collaborations. In previous years, we’ve seen a hotel room designed by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and a Tiki-hut check-out.

As we wave goodbye to Jason this week I’ve decided to bring you a compilation of some of his best bits from Brandish.
Jason brought us gems like Generic Man, a mild obsession with Taz of Sa-Ra and original pieces like the post on Bobby Womack‘s glasses.
Estelle, Ozwald Boateng, Nat Weller, Tolula Adeyemi and snowboarder/model Charlotte Dutton were some of the names who came to Harrods for the launch of André Benjamin’s Benjamin Bixby menswear line.
André 3000 as he is known to Outkast fans turned up looking suitably retro in turned-up jeans, green polo and a dogstooth jacket.
Rex Features describes the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys as an event to “recognise technical and other achievements for the 2007-08 TV season…widely considered to be a precursor to the main Emmys ceremony.”
In my world of tired soaps like Eastenders and Coronation St, this translates as an excuse for C-list stars to dress up in posh frocks a la the recent TV Soap Awards (or something along those lines) that occurred in Britain where everyone thought that Ashley Slanina-Davies from Hollyoaks was a style star because she actually had a YSL clutch (and, I admit it, she did look wonderfully 80s.)
Man About Town celebrated the launch of their third issue with a party at Bungalow 8 in association with Dior Homme Sport, a relatively new fragrance released in July.
The magazine, headed by Wonderland/Dragons’ Den Huw Gwyther features James Franco on the cover should be in shops now.
Now is a great time for menswear, everyone from designer to high street is paying more attention to men’s clothing and it seems like the bar has been well and truly raised. The Style Salvage duo kicked off their Men Represent scheme a while back, and now they’re dusting it off and want you involved. They want stylish men to email in their five essential wardrobe items, show off their outfits or just have a chat.
My bad! I may have the wrong film but I doubt such a slip-up would result in a look that miserable from Robert DeNiro? Might it be that he’s fed up with films? Maybe he (okay, clearly he) couldn’t be bothered to make the effort to dress up but my bet is that it’s standing next to Al Pacino who, as well as being an arguably equal competitor on the greatest actor front, actually look pretty good!
Read on for pictures including 50 Cent and other major stars as well as info about this cult-to-be film.
Hungover, Sleep-deprived, Over-worked, Unfit, Uncared for, Blemish-ridden; not exactly the ingredients for a healthy and handsome male are they? Well now, who cares? After you’ve smudged the Guyliner and poked yourself in the eye with Manscara, you might feel yourself in need of a bit of YSL’s new Touche Eclat for men.
L’Officiel Hommes has just launched in Singapore and their launch issue is a high-fashion, Dior Homme-loaded festival of sartorial savoir-faire.
By this I mean that we’re given great editorials with the likes of model Cole Mohr, photographer Milan Vukmirovic, and Dior Homme-designer Kris Van Assche directing a 10-page editorial featuring only Dior Homme clothes! The magazine has really pulled out all the stops for this issue and it is hopefully the precedent for a great future.
See after the jump for a full review with pictures from every editorial!
L.A Gear are back! “Hurrah!” I hear you cry, and you would be right to because L.A Gear are a cheer worthy brand. Harking from the same era as the Reebok Pump – one of the greatest trainers of all time – in an age when it wasn’t enough for trainers to be comfortable and look good, they had to have some other way to interact with such as a pump or lighting system. Judging by the success of the relaunch of the Reebok Pumps these should sell well and be highly sought after by sneaker freaks.
