Giles Deacon for New Look, one of the few designer X high street collaborations for men returns next week with another collection, featuring a selection of shirts, t-shirts, jeans and knits.

We like that the New Look collections are a chance to see Deacon’s lighter take on fashion with witty t-shirt prints and bright colours. Hopefully we’ll see see pieces which push boundaries a little more in future collections but as always it’s baby steps for menswear.

Graduate Fashion Week 2009: Kingston University BA Show Menswear

Kingston University‘s show was a much-anticipated one, and the atmosphere was electric as the lights went down.

Philippa Jenkins showed smart adventurer looks, with great accessories, she obviously has a knack for colour. Myriam Saumtally focused on sports items and workwear, giving grey jersey a twist with embroidery and we particularly loved the semi-sheer nylon jacket, with houndstooth fabric just visible underneath.

A warning from Brandish: Man Clips

joaquinishideous3.jpg

Remember a few years ago when it was all the rage amongst so called “men” to wear hair bands and scrape back their long greasy hair? Yeah me too and it looks like dark times are upon us once again as images of a very bearded Joaquin Phoenix sporting some “man clips” are floating around the information super highway. Like anything in the fashion world prefixed with the word “man” it looks and is a bag of crap, nothing angers me more than idiotic man-hair with the possible exception of men in Ugg Boots. Even men in make up fails to hit quite so high on the richter scale.

men.style.com 2009 Fashion Forecast

2009-fashion-forecast.jpg

men.style.com have posted their fashion forecast for 2009 and it looks like we will be wearing floral print with holes in our shoes this year. As forecasts go I think it’s a little hit and miss, yes plaid is here to stay and mismatching suit jacket/pants seem to be pretty hot right now but I can’t see myself in a pair of perforated winkle pickers I’m afraid.

Putting pictures of semi clad young ladies on calendars is an idea that is as old as time, but sometimes the old ideas are the best ones. Keeping up with this heritage Estevan Oriol of Upper Playground has created his own 2009 calendar entitled “LA Woman”. The calendar needs little explanation and features both black and white and colour shots all of which look awesome.
