Guaranteed to make ol’ Bradders and Deppchops feel past their prime, it’s a list of up-and-coming stars and with names like Channing Tatum and Shia LaBeouf we wont forget them in a hurry. Also featured was Last Days star Michael Pitt (above) in a collection of eleven …

Isabelle Clothing, News Leave a Comment

One of our Shiny Media writers professed to bidding up to £80 on eBay for this book, before being outbid which shows you what an essential it is. Thank heavens for the reissue of this classic, or rather thank the V&A, which is reissuing the book as part of its Golden Age of Couture exhibition for the rather more affordable …

Koodos 65% off sale

admin Clothing, News, Top Five Leave a Comment

The greatest thing about this time of year is now – officially – the summer sales. It used to be stripping down to nothing but your shorts and splaying yourself out on the beach, relaxing in the beer garden with a jug of overpriced Pimms or just having a muck about in the park with a Frisbee. But just look …

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 …

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 …

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? …

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 …
