By Will Reid on April 22nd, 2009

Untitled+2.jpgTavi, the famously fab 12 year-old blogger, is often cited as one of the most fashion-forward figures of the current style circuit. Fashion folk worldwide tune into her Style Rookie blog each day to get a glimpse of her latest get-ups and commentaries. When I saw this photo of her wearing her classic Slow and Steady Wins the Race sunglasses, I was reminded of one of my favourite males and his similar sunnies.

See after the jump to find out who I’m on about!

Brandish Alumni Jason Dike Writes for Selectism- Column Madness!

By Will Reid on March 5th, 2009

jason.jpgFlicking over my most frequented pages recently, I came across Jason Dike’s column at Selectism. Jason was on the Brandish team when I first started out over a year ago but sadly he left last September, leaving us all awfully down-in-the-dumps.

However, Jason is now writing a brilliant column for the equally brilliant Selectism and we can’t wait to see more of his stuff!

Chris Evans Uses Blog To Show-Off New Baby Noah!

By Will Reid on February 11th, 2009

chrisbaby2.jpgRadio DJ Chris Evans is the proud father of new-born son Noah and he has taken to his BBC blog to reveal pictures of his baby. Evans told readers of his BBC Radio Two blog that the new born child is “a little belter” and explains that “I know everyone says that about their own but he really is a bit special.” How adorable!

Evans married wife Natasha Shishmanian, a golf instructor, in 2007 and the ginger DJ has previously gone out with Billie Piper.

Congratulations from the Brandish team!

Puff Diddly talks to Terry Richardson- makes Hitler look like a lesser evil

By Jonathan Smith on February 5th, 2009

Never in the history of time have two bigger morons been captured together on tape. Congratulations, everybody hates you.

On a positive note this does prove that however much a failure of a human being you are you can still get famous. Diddy and Richardson, bringing hope to idiotic youth. Oh and I like Terry’s shirt, it’s pretty sweet.

Doylesays: Buck’s editor/publisher starts a blog

By Colin Chapman on January 23rd, 2009

buck_Steve_Doyle.jpg

Launched on the back of the latest updates over at Buckstyle.com, (the online face of top newish men’s mag, Buck) is a new blog by Buck’s publisher/editor Steve Doyle. Something of an enigma, little is known about Mr Doyle other than he’s not only editor of Buck but also its publisher having been inspired to create the magazine of his dreams during his time spent living in Japan.

The latter experience is already bearing fruit as Doyle explains the origins of a key accessory from Christopher Bailey’s latest Burberry Prorsum men’s collection: the Japanese knitted cummerbund. The blog’s other stated purpose is to give us the lowdown on his experience of setting up Buck, or in his words ‘the complete randomness of publishing a magazine’. Given the warm reception (and impressive distribution) of Buck to date, Mr Doyle’s blog promises to be interesting.

Love The Look: Nicola Formichetti’s Friends Out In London

By Will Reid on December 9th, 2008

Nicola Formichetti, the fashion extraordinaire and creative director of Dazed & Confused, writes an awesome blog which he manages to update almost three times a week. With pictures from his various trips, nights out, karaoke parties and Tokyo fashion-fests, the blog is a treasure trove of great images and this is no different. The pic was only put up yesterday morning and it shows some of Nicola’s friends posing on a night out in London. I love the leopard-print beanie of the fashionisto on the left and the fur collar of the guy on the right looks like a necessary luxury for the altogether depressing Baltic temperatures we have been feeling in recent times.

Go to Nicola’s blog for more pictures of his glamourous life!

Political Fashion Cont. – Josh Brolin in Interview November 2008

By Will Reid on October 15th, 2008

obama.jpg Click Image To Enlarge

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!

Tavi Tells The Truth: A Man And His Gold Coat

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

goldjacket.jpgTavi, the girl-wonder-blogger with a fashion sense so incredibly brilliant I feel like crying when I ‘m reading her blog, has found this picture and decided that she wants to marry the wearer of this great, gold jacket.

I’m okay with just being his friend but it is an undoubtedly fantastic image.

Now, the only question is where to find that jacket.

WISHLIST: MR P T-Shirt by Tim Lahan

By Will Reid on September 17th, 2008

mrptshirt.jpgAs much as I hate label-whores and Louis Vuitton/Gucci-style designs that are made only for the monogram printed across them, I have to admit that my Sartorial ‘id,’ survives vicariously through Kanye West’s ‘Universecity’ blog.

Often, we catch (not very) subtle glimpses of candy-coloured designer goods but sometimes we’re treated to the odd indie-flash buy. Like this ‘Mr P’ t-shirt designed by Tim Lahan. It’s quirky, fun, lighthearted and a piece that you could wear with anything.

Not recommended for those with a fear of pigeons; if that includes you, then I apologise for exposing you to what must surely be like The Ring + The Grudge + The Shining (in pigeon-fearing terms.)

WISHLIST: A Closet Session with à la Fake Karl

By Will Reid on September 10th, 2008

anna wintour and karl lagerfeld.jpg

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!

Hipsters are dead, long live hipsters?

By admin on August 18th, 2008

hipster scenester american apparel.jpgThe Independent are talking about global hipsters and the dissolution of traditional trends, name-dropping the usual suspects like Ryan McGinley and Nathan Barley. They call the Truman Brewery “a microcosm of an international phenomenon” which is kind of depressing but overall it’s an interesting article, describing the change in trend adoption from a vertical or trickle down movement to a lateral one largely thanks to the internet.

It’s a mostly upbeat article but it does slag off Uniqlo‘s pre-trendification era saying it was thought of as “a cheap and nasty Asian C&A equivalent” in 2004. Err, by whom?! Certainly not yours truly. Anyway if that’s all a little too fluffy read this Adbusters article on Hipsterism where Douglas Haddow calls it the ‘Dead End of Western Civilization’.

Brandish Review: Korres Men’s Range Products

By Will Reid on August 5th, 2008

korres.jpg“Oh golly gosh- that looks like it may be over 100ml. Oops for you!” *Grab* “Now, do you know how to reschedule a flight?” I’d like to say that the dragon-lady at Gatwick had spoiled my day by treating me like a dumb blonde (brunette guy by the way!) but it was truly ruined when she took my new Korres products.

The Ginseng Facial Fluid and Ruscus and Chestnut Eye Cream are two amazing products combining natural ingredients with that all improtant dermatological testing for an intense cosmetic experience.

Read on for the full review including product details and ingredients.

Fatlace wants to know if Kanye West is homosexual or metrosexual

By admin on July 25th, 2008

kanye west louis vuitton blog fatlace.jpgFatlace isn’t particularly known for it’s politically correct stance, but nontheless when they asked whether Kanye West was homosexual or not t’other day I was still a little surprised. Surely the question should be ‘Does it matter whether Kanye West is homosexual?’ (and the answer should be no).

The poll in question came about after Kanye posted some images of his latest Louis Vuitton stash on his blog. Being a heterosexual female I know I can’t have the final word on homosexuality but I am convinced it doesn’t involve handbags! The man loves fashion, and we love him for it so do we really have to question someone’s sexuality just because they’re interested in clothes?
