Adidas Originals Euro Cup Collection: ‘Cos there’s football this summer too

By Gerald Lynch on May 18th, 2012

With all the hype surrounding this year’s London 2012 Olympics, it’s easy to forget that there’s also a major football tournament going on too this summer in the shape of the Euro 2012 cup.

Adidas, key sponsors and kit designers for Great Britain’s Team GB, would have more excuses than most if they were to forget the fact. But quite to the contrary, they’re putting out their retro-inspired Euro Cup Collection as part of the Adidas Originals line to mark this summer’s footie highlights.

The unofficial collection includes reworked old-skool designs of England, France, Germany and Poland kits, with the Poles hosting the tournament.

Track tops, windbreakers and jerseys for each nation round out the collection.

Available now, check them out over on adidas.com

Filippa K Pre Fall 09

By admin on July 9th, 2009

The delicate interplay between the different colours in the Filippa K pre-Fall collection really make it. A brick shirt, cornflower trousers and a pale dove bow tie, the colours are bright but slightly faded suggesting that high summer haze and intense heat. We particularly love the pleated trousers, rolled up they make looking smart a doddle.

Alexander McQueen Menswear SS 10

By admin on July 2nd, 2009

Alexander McQueen‘s menswear collections get more and more interesting by the season. This latest show was a clear departure in mood from his last show, ‘The Queensberry Rules’.

There was still a menacing undercurrent, with vibes of tortured artist coming through, but the overall atmosphere was that of a more feminine creativity. McQueen’s traditional rustic tailoring the look reminded me of some of the Italian workmen that the Sartorialist sometimes snaps.

Onto the gushing, the patchwork shirt and jacket are utterly gorgeous, and regardless of being a woman I want! Similarly the paint effect items moves the digital print trend forwards and the paint-spattered pieces deserve to become a fully-fledged DIY blogger trend.

Best worn: When (pretending) to paint the front room of your Milan apartment.

Yves Saint Laurent Menswear SS10

By Isabelle OCarroll on July 1st, 2009

We’re still playing post-Glastonbury catchup with all the menswear shows, but the collections have set the cogs in the cranium a-whirring. First up is YSL‘s collection, which features the director, Samuel Benchetrit’s son lazing around a hotel room Nouvelle Vague style. The clothes themselves seem to be a mix of high-low tailoring and rock chic. Looking forward to seeing this in more detail.

Paris Menswear SS 2010: Paul Smith and models dance to “Thriller” during finale

By Kimberley Foster on June 29th, 2009

From our womenswear blog, Catwalk Queen

As tributes for Michael Jackson continue to pour in, Sir Paul Smith made the ultimate gesture to the late King of Pop during his closing menswear show in Paris yesterday. The British designer danced his way down the catwalk to Jackson’s iconic “Thriller,” together with his light-footed models. It was a happy and celebratory moment as the audience clapped and bopped along. Catch sight of grey-haired Paul getting down to MJ by clicking play on the video above – fun!

Matthew Williamson launches menswear range for H&M

By admin on April 29th, 2009

Following on from the high profile launch of Matthew Williamson’s H&M range for women comes his men’s collection.

As you can tell the collection takes inspiration from Williamson’s mix of traditional Brit and colourful hedonism, with brights, seersucker (a brilliant summer fabric) and tie dye. “I have aimed to incorporate a styling juxtaposition where global inspiration is fused with quintessential English style.” said Williamson. It might be a little much to wear all together, but the seperate pieces will definitely give your summer wardrobe some pep.

Jeremy Scott x Ksubi In-store this March!

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2009

20081030173114lh7.pngIn the later months of last year, the Brandish team began to see previews from the Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi denim collection.

Now, upon Lady Gaga wearing the orange love-heart suit in Sunday Times Style magazine, we are pleased to tell you that the line will be in-stores this March.

This is the fifth time the two labels have collaborated and as with previous collections, Jeremy Scott Loves Ksubi 2009 toys with the idea of Scott’s brilliant, brash prints with the achingly cool shapes of Aussie-label Ksubi.

Trashbag Aesthetics have reported that the line will be released in shops in March and we have already begun sharpening our elbows!

The floral-print denim at left is the only menswear we have so far seen from the collection but those hardcore fashionistos will no doubt be rocking the woman’s Nu-Rave orange ASAP.

See after the jump for more pics!

Gallery: Topman’s Spring Break Collection

By admin on February 10th, 2009

Topman’s Spring Break collection is about to hit the stores and it’s a poetically downbeat affair. Set against a backdrop of blustery coastline and caravans there’s more than a touch of ’80s era Morrissey going on here.

The clothes are retro, but not excessively so, modern cuts and and neat tailoring give an up to the minute feel.

By admin on February 5th, 2009

Another inspiring gallery of new season clothing, this time from uber chic French label A.P.C. The made news recently with their Nike collaboration on the All Court tennis shoe and I’m sure we’ll be seeing lots more of the label thanks to our mutual love for all things madras.

Smart trenchcoats, soft velvet sweatshirts and sharp tailored suits make for an easygoing but stylish collection. The muted palette will coordinate easily with your wardrobe, and A.P.C quality means they’ll become a treasured favourite.

Gareth Pugh’s first menswear show in Paris

By admin on January 27th, 2009

Gareth Pugh‘s first menswear show was greatly anticipated but having seen it I rather feel a bit of an anticlimax. It was exactly as I could have predicted with wetlook finishes, goathair epaulettes, and Margiela-style .He carried on the aesthetic from his last womenswear show, taking his origami facets onto puffa jackets and trousers, and accessorising with studded boots and feather headpieces.

Topman Latest Trend: ‘Berlin Wall’

By Will Reid on January 21st, 2009

berlinwall.jpgTopman has revealed their latest ‘trend’ (read: mini theme-based collection) and with a name like ‘Berlin Wall,’ I was expecting rough skinny jeans and a fusion of This Is England skin-head with a kind-of Soviet, military cool. As always, the high-street label has delivered and the bleached skinny jeans are accentuated with textured trench coats and monochrome hoodies. I don’t quite see where the comic-strip boxers and novelty socks come into German reunification but I’m not complaining!

I have my eyes on the ‘Vintage Blue Skinny Jeans’ and the ‘Grey Marl Stitch-Line Hoody.’ Check out this link for the Trend video and full collection.

WISHLIST: Velvet Trench Coat by Dolce & Gabbana A/W 09

By Will Reid on January 19th, 2009

d&g.jpgThis season is proving to be perfect for style-conscious men looking for a new sartorial direction. From Marni to Jil Sander, men are being given a chance to look top notch and whereas some seasons simply leave us to stick to a stereotypical male uniform, A/W 2009 looks to be the return of fashion flamboyance.

This velvet trench-coat from Dolce & Gabbana is gloriously over-the-top but allows men to be men with its razor-sharp tailoring and Oscar-Wilde cool (just for the record, I realise not everyone will see Oscar Wilde as a style icon and as a result- this coat is maybe not for you!) Straight off the runway at the moment, the trench will no doubt cost a fortune in the shops but keep your eyes peeled for celeb sightings!

Christophe Decarnin Jumps On The Menswear Bandwagon!

By Will Reid on November 27th, 2008

00390m.jpgWWD has confirmed the widespread rumour that Christophe Decarnin is to design a menswear range as part of the Balmain label. Apparently, it will be launched at Men’s Fashion Week in Paris next January.

Decarnin has transformed the Balmain label into a fashion so on the edge it’s almost falling off and his collections have become a staple at each season’s Paris shows. The Balmain show of this season featured a Madonna soundtrack and rah-rah skirt haute couture that, in these times of economic crisis, looked set to be a bit of a failure. However, as is the fashion way, magazines have been calling in the collection left, right and centre and Fashionista has stated that it will no doubt be the same with Balmain Menswear.

Either way, I just want Christophe to know that he can send any samples in the direction of Shiny Towers for a full review (and road-test!)
