Women think men find size zero sexy

Isabelle Uncategorized 6 Comments

A survey conducted for New Woman magazine indicated that 58% women thought that men found size zero attractive. Without wanting to get into the whole "I like a bit of meat of my woman" debate, unless you’re 5 foot nothing size zero is gross. I’m quite surprised that women actually think that heterosexual males prefer their potential mates to be …

We like short shorts (L&P Kiwi ad)

Isabelle Uncategorized Leave a Comment

The Aussie contingent at work were going wild over this video, it’s an advert for L&P who are "World famous in New Zealand". L&P, or Lemon and Paeroa is a refreshing carbonated lemon drink, drunk all over New Zealand. The advert shows the rise in popularity of ‘stubbies’ which I always thought was those small bottles of Victoria Bitter that …

Yes No Maybe clothing

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

I can’t look at any ‘Yes No Maybe’ clothing without thinking of the Malcolm in the Middle theme song but that’s me and my jingle obsessed brain. I usually hate smug slogan t-shirts but the ‘bukkake ruined my carpet’ one is actually quite funny. I think it’s the mundane mention of a carpet that stops it from being too ‘student …

Majestic Shipton and Heneage stag slipper

Isabelle Footwear Leave a Comment

If you’re going to lounge around, do it in style. Shipton and Heneage make traditional shoes, including my most hated shoe: the deck shoe; but they also make some damn fine slippers. It’s probably a bit iffy to take style tips from Alan Partidge, but I’m sure he’d understand the benefits of lounging in a velvet slipper. Available in leopard …

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

The latest fashion shoot for Vogue Hommes International featured the ubiquitous Prada turban that everybody’s been trying out. Carine Roitfeld (love that woman) seems to have lucked out as the turban looks the best I’ve seen in her her shoot. I don’t expect legions of men to rush out, grappling with shower caps and granny plastic rain hoods in a …

Burton picks

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

The word ‘Burton’ strikes fear into my heart,  I immediately see identikit student types, the kind who appear on Shipwrecked and seem to think it’s ok to dress like a surfer. Even if you’re at university in Leeds, and it’s November. I’ve put my prejudices to one side for a second and tried to fine some nice things from Burton, …

Collar stiffeners a-gogo

Isabelle Clothing 1 Comment

Collar stiffeners eh, who’d a thunk it? They’re used to stop collars curling and keep shirts looking sharp. Quality shirts usually come with a plastic insert that breaks after a few washes so I’ve done a round up of  the collar stiffeners on the market. Collar stiffeners almost come into the ‘Innovations Catalogue’ area of pointless inventions but not quite. …

Ginch Gonch underwear

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

Ginch Gonch do undies for men and women; I’ve had to censor the picture on the left as the size of the model’s thighs is frankly obscene. Do they offer free steroids with their pants or what? Anyway their range is quite fun and kitsch and includes ‘Jolly Cocks’, ‘Wiener Eater’, and ‘Red Bandana’ prints; the Red Bandana is presumably …

Mihara Yasuhiro for Puma

Japanese designer Yasuhiro Mihara’s latest collaboration with Puma throws up some pretty interesting things. Psychedelic patterns, gold leather, studs and rivet details gives your everyday sneaks an out-of-the-ordinary touch. Mihara also has his own shop in Japan, called Sosu (prime number) selling men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. My favourites from the Puma collection are the reptilian MY-25, they’ve got …

David Beckham strikes a pose for Adidas

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

Blaps! David Beckham’s new pictures for a campaign for Adidas makes him look like a wannabe gangster rapper, but more Vanilla Ice than Eminem. Don’t you think his leg looks really hairy? This is probably an attempt to rebrand him for the American market, ahead of his multi-million-dollar move to join ‘soccer’ team L.A. Galaxy this summer. Safe blud etc.
