Unusual Trends For 2O11: The Crop Top

By Laura on January 21st, 2011


Topman Crop Top

Calvin Klein Crop Top

The year is still relatively fresh, and most of us are starting to check out 2011’s spring/summer collections in anticipation of spotting any future trends. However, sometimes you come across something that simply leaves you bemused. The Crop top is one of them.

This unusual yet bold idea has shown up in look books by both Calvin Klein and TopMan.
Calvin Klein’s interpretation of this new trend features minimal detailing, whilst staying true to the usual neutrals featured in recent collections. As such a boundary pushing piece, it is unlikely that we will see this trend take off in S/S 2011, but don’t be surprised if you start to see men layering a cropped top over other pieces this season.

So what do you think? is this a trend that you think has potential to take off? If so how would/could you carry off this look?

The latest issue of VMAN was released a few days ago and it has two, bright covers. Models Jake Madden and CJ Hancock pose in fab suits from designers Calvin Klein and Givenchy and the covers are brilliantly fresh- perfect for the economic moan-athon we are currently suffering!

CJ and Jake are the joint winners of the VMAN and Ford Model Search and from these debut covers it looks like they will go far.

Calvin Klein announces menswear move to New York

By admin on August 7th, 2008

calvin klein new york fashion week milan menswear.jpgCalvin Klein have decided to move their menswear catwalk collection to New York this season instead of Milan. The company will still present their collection to retailers in Milan this coming January but the show itself will take place on the ground floor of the company’s headquarters.

“As this is the year we have brought the Collection business back in house and will celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary, we thought this was an appropriate time to change things up a bit,” said Tom Murry, President & COO, Calvin Klein, Inc. He went on to add: “We see this as a great opportunity to support our U.S. business and retail partners and acknowledge our heritage in New York City.”

The move isn’t permanent but could be a sign that designers are getting a little concerned about retailers’ spending during the economic downturn.

WISHLIST: Chanel Resort Jumpers

By Will Reid on May 19th, 2008

chanel.jpgResort season is always a bit of a drag for me; overly-frivolous (yes I see the haute-couture irony) and just another season to get my head around, the jump from cashmere coats to cruise is always too much. Karl Lagerfeld’s show for Chanel was proving nauseatingly frilly and I would challenge any British man not to feel melancholic at the sight of a male model in pink tie-dye. That was until Brad Koenig swaggered down the runway wearing that Chanel jumper. You may think that referring to a item as that only three days after it made its debut might be slightly forward but it’s cashmere, a jumper, Chanel and now on Brandish’s WISHLIST. Need I say more?

Lookout for more coverage of male resort looks this week on Brandish.

You Would If You Could: Busy Boots

By Will Reid on April 23rd, 2008

gold+boots.jpgAfter too many torturous nights of Cotton Eye Joe and Cowboy-clad cankles, customised boots have been effectively ruined. From D&G to Calvin Klein, embellished boots have done the rounds this season and I want in on the action. My brown leather Chelsea’s have blurred into wardrobe background and now I’m looking out for glittery, brightly coloured boots without any Simon Cowell heel. I don’t want hi-tops or Converse-style trainers but proper Dior Homme-on-a-budget boots.

Marc Jacobs interview

By admin on April 17th, 2008

marc_jacobs_page_1_image_0001.jpgMen.Style.com have a great article on Marc Jacobs up where he addresses issue with his shows, his body and accusations of a midlife crisis. His response to the latter is “I don’t feel like I’m in crisis, and I don’t know that it’s the middle of my life”. Fair enough.

While it’s great he’s decided to get fit and all, he does look slightly bizarre – like a regular persons head stickered on top of a picture of a Calvin Klein model. Andy Peters and Gary Rhodes also have this effect and there’s something slightly unsettling about the look of it. Not that I’m knocking them for working out, I’m just saying.

Man About Town- Issue 2- Hayden Christensen

By Will Reid on April 5th, 2008

hayden6.JPGSo I realise that this is the second time we ( fine, I) have looked at Hayden Christensen on a magazine cover over a relatively short time period but surely a young male celebrity who has every reason to be guarded with the use of his image but agrees to be on the cover of a men’s (non-dirty) magazine in only its second issue deserves to mentioned in our blog? Now better looking blog I might mention.

That and the fact that this issue contains interviews with Alexander McQueen, Editorials with Catherine McNeil, Sean Opry, Camilla Akrans and a whole feature shot underwater. Honestly, am I the only one supressing their child-like excitement here?

Trends: Watch & Wear- Le Freak c’est Chic!

By Will Reid on February 14th, 2008

Tb The time has come for the return of the eccentric dresser. But before you all stop reading this, firm in the belief that I have finally cracked, I promise that I am not subliminally feeding you pages from ‘An Idiot’s Guide to … being an Idiot,’ but instead providing you with an outfit that will allow you to get freaky without the raised eyebrows- more crinkled blazer than straitjacket.

See after the jump for a great, freak-chic outfit.
