Stella McCartney Menswear? Yes, Please!

stellamenswear

Since turning up at the Met’s Costume Institute Gala with a trinity of her Hollywood girlfriends, Stella McCartney has had a whirlwind week involving everyone from Simon Doonan (creative director of Barneys) to Michelle Obama.

While chatting to the gloriously over-the-top Doonan, Stella was asked about lending her ethical hand to a menswear collection…

Presidential Major Moment = Red Tie, Obama follows suit

barack obama inauguration red tie suit.jpg

I doubt I need to give any background to the ‘Presidential Major Moment’ currently hitting headlines around the world. Looking through pictures of President Obama’s (how unbelievably cool is that?!) inauguration, I couldn’t help but let my mind wonder onto more sartorial matters.

Kwame Boyce-Deacon is going to go down in history as the first person ever to get a Barack Obama haircut. The detailed do was the work of Clint Rainford, a barber from Montsho‘s hair salon in Leicester. Rainford said: “I knew at the start of the campaign that Obama would be voted president, so I kept a photo ready to do this”.

Obama. True, true

Avid Brandishers will know that we have more than a little soft spot for the man who looks really ruddy likely to be the next U.S President: Barrack Obama, so it comes as no surprise that, yes, this is another Obama related post. Though this is not really in any way related to fashion it has been doing the rounds on many of the fashion and culture websites so I thought I’d give it it’s due here on old Brandles.

A political campaign seems to be the ‘It’ accessory of this season. After Tyra Banks posing as Michelle Obama in September’s Harper’s Bazaar, Interview has pulled in Josh Brolin to rock the presidential trend for their latest cover. Josh is actually playing President George Bush in an up-coming film, titled ‘Bush,’ directed by Oliver Stone. However, on the cover he is photographed by Mikael Jansson.

Do you think that the fashion industry is taking the politics trend too far or do you think it’s a necessary evil at a time like this. Tell us on our Facebook page!

I want Barack Obama to become the President of the USA. I do. Honestly.

However, telling you guys is enough for me and I don’t feel the need to have his name plastered across each of my outfits.

Obama belt, the iPhone for your waist

It has been a few weeks now since I last posted something Obama related, not that the fashion world hasn’t been punctuated almost daily with a new label pushing the Obama cause with some special edition T-shirt or sneaker- something that has been unheard of for any other Presidential Candidate. Could you really see Clinton’s face on the toe box of a Dunk? Neither can I, Monica Lewinsky’s box on the other hand… Ho-ho-ho, I jest. It has got to the stage now where you could have an entire weeks worth of wardrobe clad head to toe in top fashion brands bearing the visage of Barack.

The Cainturian Candidate

upperplayground_caniancandidate_tshirt.jpg

The United States Presidential Election fascinates me for many reasons, one of which is the coverage the candidates (mostly our boy Obama) are getting from the fashion scene, in particular t-shirt companies. This is the latest from Upper Playground and is, like most (if not all) of the street style scene, towing the Democratic line.

Barack Obama and Terry Richardson- Better Than Stefano Pilati in Interview?

terry-richardson-obama-photo.jpg

When I saw this image on Hypebeast this morning, I instantly wanted to put it on Brandish and have it sent right round the world on some type of banner. Unfortunately, I found out 5 minutes later that the hotel I’m staying at (Grand Hyatt Mumbai,) has given the entire floor above me to a call centre which means that it takes my computer about half an hour to Google something and the thought of uploading a picture onto Movable Type almost brings me to tears.

Obama watch 2008- “RocknRolla” world premiere

Some more Barack action for you after last weeks “O-Face” debacle where I, possibly incorrectly attributed the inspiration for the Barack “O-Face” Obama t-shirt to that scene in “Office Space” and was subsequently correct by Jason whose explanation does make more sense. In my defense may I say that on the UNDR-CRWN website “Office Space” is attributed as the inspiration for said T, so you know I’m not just making this stuff up. Just saying.

Pedantry Corner: Barack Obama’s ‘O-face’ t-shirt

carter_dunk_france1.jpg

Just a quick pedantic note here: Whilst I would love the idea of an Obama t-shirt based on that scene from Office Space, it’s more than likely based on the picture above of Vince Carter dunking on Fred Weis during the 2000 Olympics. The ‘O-Face’ probably stands for facial rather than anything else. You can see the actual dunk after the jump, if you’re so inclined.

The man is back, and seemingly the t-shirt world cannot get enough of the 2008 Democratic Presidential Candidate. Barack “O-Face” Obama is gracing many a piece of apparel in the lead up to the election, the inspiration for this latest piece from UNDR-CRWN is random at best and I’m failing to see any tangible link between the O-Face scene from Office Space and our man B.O, once again proving that humour is just Barack Obama set against almost anything.

He’s back! The man, the legend, the enigma that is the Democratic presidential candidate; Barack Obama. The man comes in many guises including a t-shirt we featured a few weeks ago and one we featured a few months ago, and now you could (maybe) have his visage on your feet with these Mobama Dunks.

Pledge your love for Obama with the Barack Me Obamadeus t-shirt

barack me obamadeus.jpg

I’m not sure which came first, the XKCD cartoon or the t-shirt but either way I love it. You can buy the t-shirt for the bargain price of $25 in the US, but UK shipping might make it a little more. Nevertheless it’s a cheap way of declaring Obama-love, especially if you haven’t got US voting rights.
