Kickers team up with Chromeo and Lovebite for some Fancy Footwork

By admin on December 18th, 2008

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:

  • It was started in France in ’68 (which has special significance) by Daniel Raufast who wanted something for hippies to wear on their feet.
  • Famous Kickers wearers include David Bowie, Buzzcocks and Ian Brown. The shoes enjoyed a renaissance in the late ’80s on the casuals scene -which I’d put money on making a return very soon btw.
  • Jarvis Cocker wore Kickers so much the company made him a special pair which were dubbed ‘Cockers’.

The company installed a shed around UK festivals where you show off your moves and ended up in an amazing stop-frame vid made by Lovebite, aka Nottingham duo Nick Cobby and Allan Buxton, soundtracked by a nice little CSS remix of Chromeo‘s Fancy Footwork. Phew! If you’re not intrigued after that little intro then you’re dead, the video after the jump.

Chace Crawford Shows His (Lack of) Fashion Colours!

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Only a few months ago, we told you of how Mario Testino had let it slip that Chace Crawford was to get the cover of VMAN. Since then, Chace has got his cover (although the Brandish team weren’t overly enthusiastic) and a whole new series of Gossip Girl has begun.

In this video, the Grazia Team give Chace their ‘Grazia Guy Fashion Quiz’ and the results are disastrous! I might work in fashion but I’m sure most Brandish readers could score better. What do you think?

Watch the video and then e-mail us to tell us how you do!

Marks and Spencer take on Take That for Christmas ad

By admin on November 14th, 2008

Check out the new Marks and Spencer Christmas advert which stars Take That in festive mode joking around with Twiggy, Lily Cole and the rest of the M&S crew.
My favourite part is Gary’s hilariously uneasy face ten seconds in, and there are pure LOLZ to be had when Ikkle Mark™ swaps present tags around; what a joker!

Sean and Stuart try a ten minute make-up challenge

By admin on November 13th, 2008

Resident make up expert Zara put male cosmetics to the test recently thanks to our two willing guinea pigs, Sean Hannam and Stuart Waterman. The guys bravely applied bronzer, eyeliner and even fake eyelashes for the test with varying results. All I’m going to say is that from Stuart’s expertly made-up eyes the My Chemical Toilet editor’s either been been in too many male grooming vids or he has a weekend job none of us know about…

Where he’s a woman. What I’m trying to get across here is that Stuart Waterman is a woman in his spare time.

More animation with Common and Pharrell

By Jonathan Smith on August 28th, 2008

Another animated music video from another hip-hop fashionisto. This time it’s Common featuring Pharrell with a minimal video for “Announcement”. The animation comes with many an outfit change for the two rappers and many a b-girl for them to rap around, plus check out Common’s beard, it’s the business.

Kanye West’s new video!

By Jonathan Smith on August 27th, 2008

Love him or hate him (I hate him if you wanted to know, have I not mentioned before?) but Kanye West is back here on Brandish with a new music video and once again proving that he is a modern Renaissance Man he has directed this latest effort. The video for the song “Good Morning” is animated by influential Japanese artist and animator (obviously) Takashi Murakami and depicts Kanye as the famous bear late for his graduation.

Chromeo hand out fashion tips on Myspace

By admin on July 4th, 2008

MySpace Presents: The Fit with Chromeo

What’s wrong with musicians these days? They seem to spend all time trying to look as normal as possible. I thought wearing outlandish outfits were a perk of the job, not something you shied away from in case you look like you think about what you wear.

I bring this up because Chromeo, those purveyors of electro funk, constantly state that they don’t want to look like ‘they’re trying too hard’ in their myspace ‘the fit’ feature. They also state that ‘every man should have at least two pairs of Jordans’. I’m sure I’ve said this before but I’ll say it again: All Jordans are hideous. Bar none.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Go Back On Style.com…

By Will Reid on July 1st, 2008

liberacebath.jpgIs it just me or has Style.com been handed over to the likes of M. Night Shyamalan and Wes Craven? Yes, it has previously been the site of some mad fashion experiments but after the ghost model (I know, I can’t stop mentioning it!) and now this video on the home of Liberace, one can only look for popcorn and blankets and hope for the worst.

The video, ‘Viva Liberace!’ involves a tour of Liberace’s Las Vegas home and whilst undeniably vulgar, I have to admit that the (in)famous pianist sure had a taste for the finer things. Howevr, in case you don’t believe my theory that this is a horror film in the making, read this quote from the tour guide; “as we’ve been walking around he’s been listening to us, he’s been watching us.”

See below for stills from the video including ceilings painted by Michelangelo’s relatives, stairs swathed in roses and much more…Beware!

Dance sequence from Humse Hai Muqabala shows how to wear double pleat trousers

By admin on May 19th, 2008


You might be forgiven for thinking that my reasons for putting this video up are slightly self-indulgent, but you’d be wrong. Of course it’s an amazing video -featuring Prabhudeva who is apparently one of the best dancers, but if you pay attention to the main male characters’ lower half you’ll notice they are wearing some rather fetching double pleat trousers.
I’ve seen quite a few people carry off voluminous pleated trousers, but honestly, if you want a guide on how to look good in your neo-baggies then take a tip from these guys.

Keith Richards gives his top London tips for Louis Vuitton

By admin on April 30th, 2008


Louis Vuitton have made a nice little video with Keith Richards, who describes his favourite bits of London in his trademark 60-a-day voice. I like the way it’s quite loosely structured and informal, but I do think that when he says at the end “London…Yeah…Travelling.” he sounds like he’s lost the plot. That’s what a lifetime of hedonism’ll do to you…Don’t do it kids, just say no!

John Travolta ‘taches up for the Taking of the Pelham One Two Three remake

By admin on April 29th, 2008

john travolta pelham 123 movie film moustache.jpgJohn Travolta’s new look might raise some eyebrows but at least its better than his dubious hairpiece concoctions we’ve seen in the past.

Not content with starring in the remake of the classic film ‘Hairspray’ (and then refuting that there was anything gay about it…) John Travolta is donning the handlebar moustache for the remake of the Taking of the Pelham One Two Three which will also star Denzel Washington.

The original Taking of the Pelham One Two Three was adapted from a book of the same name and was a thriller about a subway train hijacking. I’m not convinced that this remake (there was another remake in 1998) will be any good, to judge for yourself I’ve put a clip of the original after the jump, surely they can’t do better?

Mystery Jets go back to the ’80s for Two Doors Down

By admin on April 26th, 2008


The Mystery Jets’ latest video is unbelievably ’80s, I feel like I’m watching the Boomtown Rats except the music is better. Because I’m old enough to remember a lot of the ’80s the video feels rather odd, kind of like the way my mum probably felt when I used to rock up in the local charity shop’s finest ’70s togs.

Stuart tries Jean Paul Gaultier Monsieur ‘guyliner’

By admin on April 24th, 2008

Part two of the Stuart Waterman makeover, and I have to confess that after applying the eyeliner I laughed like I have never laughed before in my life, emitting some sort of inhuman cackle!

Anyway, the verdict? The eyeliner may have been a step too far for Stuart but he did take away the sheer gel bronzer so I declare a victory for male make up. The Jean Paul Gaultier range is priced between £29 and £9 and is available nationwide.
