Alexander McQueen autumn-winter 2012 menswear collection

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on October 24th, 2012

Words like ‘dapper’, ‘gentleman’ and ‘tailored’ spring to mind when looking at the Alexander McQueen Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. But then there is also ‘avant-garde’ and ‘unique’. Either way, the collection oozes of Britishness with a twist, perfect for the modern gentleman.

Which look is your favourite?

Brandish Poll: Thom Browne or Tom Ford?

Thom Browne and Tom Ford are without a doubt two of Brandish’s favourite designers and so imagine my surprise when I got e-mailed this article from the New York Times. It compares the work of both men and includes such literary gems as “the Tom Ford man is an Anglicized gloss on Hollywood style, while Thom Browne’s designs evoke the hipness of eternal adolescence” and Tom Ford’s brilliant definition of masculininty; “to be masculine is to fuse the debonair cut of a Savile Row suit with the swagger of a star from 1970s pornography.”

I made the Brandish team answer this rather sadistic question and you can see their (unwilling) answers after the jump along with a Brandish Poll.

Thom Browne Runs…In Thom Browne Cardies!

Thom Browne’s signature look of shrunken suit, sports socks and loafers has cemented him as a style icon for both sexes and his shows have even inspired my own trend reports. Now, Style.com has talked to him about his exercise regime (although running daily on tracks including Central Park, the Eiffel Tower and the Imperial Gardens of Japan are a luxury rather inaccessible to us hoi polloi.) But I really must warn you that the vid may leave you feeling slightly inferior- after all how many of us can claim to have completed 15 marathons worldwide and still be running in Thom Browne knitwear?

Is it just me or are we seeing a crossover of trends between the worlds of guy and girl’s fashion?

An example are the India-inspired outfits at Armani Privé Spring/Summer
2007 that found their way into Rei Kawakubo’s menswear collection for
Autumn/Winter via style icon Andrew Logan (as pointed out by Brandish’s
own Tim Hunter).For this season, we saw velvet shirts at Dries Van
Noten not unlike those at Christopher Kane Spring/Summer 2008 and the
flowers on lapels at the Lanvin Menswear show could be seen as an
incredibly subtle interpretation of last season’s (female) trend for
floral prints.
