By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

rex_796866h.jpgFashionista, the site that is always in-the-know, has reported upon a WWD article that reveals tennis-supremo Rafael Nadal as the chosen face of French fashion-house Lanvin’s new fragrance for men, L’Homme Sport.

Nadal is the first tennis face to front the campaign of a French fashion house and the news of his appointment is causing quite the stir. Nadal recently became the Number 1 Tennis Player in the World, taking over from Roger Federer who is, himself, a bit of a fashion darling beloved by editors and designers from Anna Wintour to Oscar De La Renta.

WISHLIST: A Closet Session with à la Fake Karl

By Will Reid on September 10th, 2008

Now this looks like my kind of party!

I feel like a horrible, disgusting sorry excuse for a fashion follower. Why am I bound by such emotional wounds? Why do I feel so sick-minded and wrong?

Answer: I want an invitation to Fake Karl’s closet. Yes, it’s true! I, Will Reid, couldn’t think of anything this week that could be desired more than a day of hanging upside down with Anna and Karl sipping our “respective drinks.”

And don’t even tell me you don’t want to too. There’s even a Yohji Yamamoto-shaped hole in the window!

US Vogue May 2008- Tom ‘Superman’ Welling

By Will Reid on April 15th, 2008

wellingvogue.jpg“It’s a Bird It’s a Plane It’s Superman.” Well no, actually it’s Tom Welling- the actor behind Smallville’s Clark Kent. American Vogue, the powerhouse magazine hasn’t been exciting since the days of Diana Vreeland and it seems they have a new marketing plan for adding some style spice. They seem unable to resist the power of male fashion and with our own trends fast forming a tableau for female copycats (Dior Homme anyone?) this month’s issue has highlighted Welling as a sartorial force to be reckoned with. Posing with model Maryna Linchuk in a feature based on a disguised Superwoman’s adventures within the working world, Welling is shot by Steven Meisel in Tom Ford, Bottega Veneta and Ralph Lauren Purple Label. I am loving the 50s vibe and while overdone in recent times, it is a refreshing change from razor-sharp denim and Biker-style studs.

See after the jump for more pictures from Welling’s stunning shoot.

‘Man Alive’- Style Magazine, Sunday 16 March

By Will Reid on March 19th, 2008

Style When I opened Sunday Times Style’s latest male issue, I came upon a great editorial called ‘Man Alive.’ It focuses on shoes and suits but the contents are elevated by Lucy Ewing’s styling and Paul Bliss’ photography.

Among an issue containing Kate Moss semi-naked on a beach and Clive Owen in semi-shadow, it is testament to its brilliance that the editorial made the front cover of the magazine. Particular highlights included the ginger model leaping excitedly in the air. Clothing ranges from Giorgio Armani to Miu Miu and the models have been picked to represent different types of people.

US Vogue April 2008- LeBron James and Gisele Bundchen

By Will Reid on March 18th, 2008

For possibly the first time in its history, US Vogue is attracting attention for something other than its general lack of interest. The reason; this year’s ‘Shape Issue’ features LeBron James, the 6 ft 8 basketball player, posing with Gisele Bundchen, the 5 ft 11 supermodel.

So, still questioning why this could be seen as interesting by those within the fashion world? Well this is only the third time that a male has been featured on a US Vogue cover (after Richard Gere and George Clooney) and the first time that said male has been of colour- satisfied yet? Within the magazine, we have a feature which takes models like Gisele Bundchen and Doutzen Kroes and pairs them with athletes like Shaun White and Apolo Ohno. It is rare that so many stars come together (especially for fashion) and all those included are at the top of their game (pardon the use of this particular expression.) This is an issue for everyone and although some cynics are predicting a major letdown, let’s look up. In the case of 6 ft 8 LeBron, you’ll be doing it anyway.

See after the jump for great screencaps from a video on the issue. (Source: The Fashion Spot)
