Alexander Wang Announces Menswear- Is Our Favourite Hipster Jumping on the Bandwagon!

By Will Reid on February 6th, 2009

Nitrolicious has revealed that Alexander Wang, the most recent fashion darling and It-designer, is to launch a menswear collection for Spring/Summer 2010. Adamant that he isn’t simply jumping on the bandwagon, Wang explains that “for us it’s a component that’s always been there..the idea has always been there, I’m just expanding it” in reference to his famously androgynous looks.

What do you think- would you be up for Wang’s signature baggy vests, scruffy trainers and cropped trousers? I’m already excited! Write on our Facebook Wall and let us know what you think.

YSL Men S/S 09: A Different Kind of Preview…

By Will Reid on July 8th, 2008

ysl.jpgFor this season, the genius designer Stefano Pilati has decided to preview the label’s menswear collection in the form of seven incredibly arty mini-films. The first, called ‘Figures Entwining’, has an undeniable beauty and fragility, but I have to admit that I was a little freaked out by the androgynous and almost child-like models.

See after the jump for a look at all the preview films.

Love The Look: Richard Chai No. 8

By Will Reid on July 3rd, 2008

richardchai.jpgThis new feature highlights the looks we love. Whether it be charity-shop mannequins or fashion week-shots, we will tell you which outfits are rocking our fashion-obsessed world. The first post of this feature looks at Richard Chai’s collection and the one look that I would literally kill for. (Okay, maybe not kill but beat up that glossy male model for sure.)

The whole collection had the feel of street-style and with increased ethnicity in the models used by different labels I think it is clear that the industry is beginning to move away from high-gloss and fake tans. Why go for prissy Versace-boy when you can be an adventurous Dunhill-man?

Check out those high-tops and that two-tone shirt and I doubt you will be able to resist the charm of a young designer only in his second season. I would say ‘out with the old’ but then again I believe it unnecessary to have yet another look at Yohji Yamamoto’s ghost model.
