Isabelle News Leave a Comment

French Connection autumn 2007 collection

admin Accessories, Clothing, News, Top Five Leave a Comment

Call me ignorant, but does "summer fashion" really apply to men? Whereas women get all sorts of colourful dresses, tops, skirts etc., blokes are lumbered with shorts and t-shirts. It’s not really fair is it? It’s why I love autumn/winter collections – there’s a lot more to choose from, simply because the colder months need more clothes to keep you …

Star Wars: Darth Vader’s party hat revealed

admin Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News 1 Comment

I suppose all that black does get a bit monotonous, doesn’t it? When he’s not crushing rebel scum or trying to convince Luke to join the Darkside, I’m sure Darth likes to kick back and slip into something more comfortable. Although I didn’t think that something would be as garishly camp as this. From the looks of their badass uniforms, …

Mercury Prize shortlist: Who will win?

admin Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, Lifestyle & Gadgets, News 1 Comment

It’s that time of year again when the nominations for the Most Useless, sorry, Mercury Prize are announced. The Mercury Prize has an impressive track history of bestowing its paper weight on bands and singers who go on to do absolutely nothing of note after their "win". Talvin Singh? Ms Dynamite? Franz Ferdinand? Er, M People? Speak up please, we …

Justin Timberlake sports cool RVCA t-shirt

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

Justin Timberblake was recently spotted wearing an awesome shirt bearing the RVCA logo (pronounced ROO-KA) shortly after picking up a cheque for £35 million pounds from his managers as payment for his 101-show tour of the world. And even if the Michael Jackson-mimicking lothario drops out of the tour, he still pockets the lot. Wish I could get a contract …

Djimon Hounsou fronts Calvin Klein underwear range

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Heroes and Celebrities, News, Underwear & Swimwear Leave a Comment

Despite his acting ability and the fact that he’s appeared in some cracking films over the past few years, Djimon Hounsou has yet to become a household name. The talented actor has appeared alongside Russell Crowe in Gladiator and, more recently, co-starred with the big-faced-small-headed man-child Leonardo DiCaprio in the acclaimed Blood Diamond, being Oscar nominated for his role in …

Yep, it seems all your dreams have come true as, in honour of the imminent release of The Simpsons movie, editor-in-chief of Harper’s Bazaar, Glenda Bailey, commissioned …

admin Clothing, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

LA Galaxy are hoping to follow up Real Madrid’s success in Beckham shirt sales. His former club sold hundreds of thousands of "Beckham" printed jerseys world wide, earning them millions. Galaxy shouldn’t have too much trouble matching this feat. Much of the merchandising revenue came as a result of sales in the Far East, where followers are loyal to the …

David Beckham kicks off his new life in LA

admin Clothing, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News 1 Comment

Brand Beckham arrived in LA early this morning to a media frenzy, besieged by paps and fans alike. There are fears that the Beckham name won’t take off in the states – after all he’s a "soccer" player and she’s a jaded "singer" – but judging by the attention they received this morning, that situation is looking increasingly unlikely. David …

Gavin Pierre Medford to helm wardrobe design in new Jimi Hendrix biopic

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

I’m surprised it’s actually taken this long to do, but film makers have finally decided to exploit the memory of Jimi Hendrix and make a biopic of his life. Do I hear the sound of Oliver Stone’s little mitts gleefully being rubbed together? I’m guessing "yes". However, we’re not too concerned about the politics of how the film’s going to …

Tom Meighan from Kasabian dons Paul Smith for Live Earth gig

Isabelle Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

The debate about Live Earth rages on with the Guardian calling it a "CO2 yawn" and our very own Hippyshopper giving their tuppence worth.  One of the most exciting moments watching Live Earth for me was when I noticed that Kasabian singer Tom Meighan was wearing the Paul Smith ‘Pete Townshend’ shirt we covered on Brandish in April. I’m more …

Bond villain Mads Mikkelsen fronts new A/W H&M campaign

admin Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

Scarfaced poker-villain Le Chiffre is the new face of H&M’s latest men’s fashion range. Well, not Le Chiffre, but Mad Mikkelsen, the actor who plays him in Casino Royale. Although personally I think more international terrorists should branch out into the world of high street fashion. Carlos the Jackal fronting Topman? Osama strutting his stuff in Next gear? Why not? …

Daniel Radcliffe’s leather waistcoat shocker

admin Clothing, Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

What is Daniel Radcliffe trying to prove? Who is he trying to prove it to? Older women? Hell’s Angels? The latest YMCA tribute act? Whoever it is, it’s just not working. Ignoring the "edgy" makeup and cat-lick bumfluff, that waistcoat is obscene. It looks like he’s ripped it off Britney Spears and modified it a bit. All he needs is …

Recent research has confirmed what I have always known when men tote a bag around they generally stuff it full of expensive gadgetry, while women like me like to fill our bags with receipts and snotty tissues. General Insurance’s Andrew Beard said: "Man bags have quickly become a mainstream accessory, helping men lug around their ever more valuable stash of …
