Will the Real Henry Holland Please SuperPoke Us?

By Will Reid on December 16th, 2008

Grazia recently reported that Henry Holland has 662 friends on Facebook. However, upon closer inspection (and my quest to see if old Henners has uploaded his pic with our Catwalk Queen editor Gemma,) I found that there are two Henry Hollands on Facebook. And neither has 662 friends.

One of the Henries has 403 friends and the other has 582- how intriguing! Worst of all?- neither has Agyness Deyn as a Facebook mate. The Brandish team does love a fashion mystery!

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!

Polyvore: The Beloved Tool is Brandished!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008

polyvore.jpg

One of my own punk-inspired ‘sets’ combines Dries Van Noten trousers, a Uniqlo t-shirt, an image of inspiration and a black crayon with Vans for some high fashion-DIY.

Polyvore has long been the talk of fashionistas and our sister site, Catwalk Queen, runs a ‘Style This’ competition based completely around the image-making tool. Whether it’s a Vivienne Westwood tie or a Topman ring, styling outfits has never been easier! Granted, we men have it a bit harder in terms of finding a wide variety of items but just search for ‘man bag’ and you have a good page of man-bags.

And best/worst of all? After you’ve styled your outfits you can even buy everything you’ve included in your image.

Look out for more Brandish outfits or watch the Polyvore tutorials and send your own to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com!

Shiny Media’s Christmas Dress-Up

After my latest embarrassing fashion incident, I asked different Shinies “What Is The Most Outrageous Thing You’ve Ever Done In The Name of Fashion?” The answers were varied but pretty hilarious all-round.

It’s all wild stuff here on Brandish; a feast of dress-driven adventures and sartorial sacrifice! Continue reading for answers from some of British blogging’s biggest stars.

Top present picks for men from Catwalk Queen

By ShinyMedia on December 17th, 2007

Take a look at Gemma and I sat on the couch at Shiny Towers looking through a selection of gift ideas for men. They’re good for your brother or your bezzie, but frankly I think you just should treat yourself to one of these gift ideas because Christmas is usually disappointing enough!

I Love What You’re Wearing: Heather and Ollie

By ShinyMedia on May 21st, 2007

Streetstyle_009

This week Brandish and Catwalk Queen are featuring street style pictures from Brighton’s Great Escape music festival. The first couple we have are the cute Heather and Ollie, two students from Brighton. I like their unpretentious fun style, and the fact that Ollie looks like a young Bobby Gillespie.

Collection of Style menswear

By Isabelle on April 11th, 2007

Cosman1
There’s no denying that women get the best deal on the high street but COS, the latest H&M offshoot  offers what I think might be the best high street clothing for men. I paid a visit to the Regent’s Street store this morning and tried on some of their women’s clothing, but for obvious reasons couldn’t get dressing room shots of the men’s stuff! I did have a good look though and it’s all fashion conscious, without trying too hard. Simple clothes allow features like interesting cuts, on-trend colours and pretty prints to shine. There was lots of dove grey, navy and chartreuse green. See after the cut for more COS images.

Aldo summer trainers

By Isabelle on March 20th, 2007

Aldotrainer

Aldo have been making waves in the womenswear world with their Chloe rip-off wedges, and their men’s stuff seems to be catching up. These trainers (£44.99) keep it simple without looking too boring and the halfway between grey and beige tones means they’ll look great with browns, navys or blacks. I can see these becoming summer favourites, so it’s a good thing they’re made from long-lasting leather.
