London Fashion Week is all abuzz with the gossip that Gareth Pugh is, in fact, headed for Dior Homme.

Rumours began last month, when Delphine Arnault, daughter of LVMH boss Bernard Arnault, sat front row at Pugh’s debut menswear show in Paris.

Now, Grazia is claiming that the deal to nab Gareth for creative director at Dior, is all but done.

By Will Reid on February 9th, 2009

kris-van-assche-for-oliver-peoples-2009-spring-summer-01.jpgKris Van Assche, creative head of Dior Homme, and luxury sunglasses label Oliver Peoples have already put out successful collections of their collaborative designs but this week has seen the launch of the Spring/Summer 2009 collection.

The sunglasses for this season are still over-sized but thinner and sleeker than the thick-rimmed versions of previous seasons. Available in black, white and a divine tortoiseshell, these sunglasses (yet to be given a pricetag) are sure to feature on the WISHLIST of the entire Brandish team.

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.

Johnny Borrell declines Dior Homme campaign

By admin on November 12th, 2008

johnnyborrell_rejectsdiorhomme.jpgKirsten Dunst’s former squeeze, Johnny Borrell, has reportedly declined an offer to appear in Dior Homme’s next campaign because he felt it wouldn’t suit his image.

Dior Homme bosses liked what they saw from the Razorlight frontman in his music video for the band’s new single, Wire To Wire. They thought he would fit their next Girl With A Pearl Earring-inspired campaign, after seeing him don a New Romantic-style blouson and earring in the video.

Ex-Dior Homme Designer Jordan Askill Bejewels DSM!

By Will Reid on September 22nd, 2008

JAskill1_Pendant08_b.jpgJordan Askill, a designer whose work for Dior Homme and Ksubi has cemented him as a name to keep an eye on, has launched a jewellery collection at Dover Street Market (DSM.) Dover Street Market is a fashion emporium founded by Rei Kawakubo and her husband and it has become known for its artistic installations, exclusive lines and designer collaborations. In previous years, we’ve seen a hotel room designed by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and a Tiki-hut check-out.

Akill’s jewellery line is made up of edgy, androgynous pieces that could be worn by either guys or girls and Vogue reports that “the debut jewellery offering features bird, boy and rose motifs as fragile and rare entities – the flora, fauna and humanity of life – set in a claw to denote them as “precious memories to capture“. Lovely.

Jude Law’s Photoshop Job for Dior Homme Sport!

By Will Reid on July 23rd, 2008

Perez Hilton has got his hands on an image from the heavily anticipated Jude Law for Dior Homme Sport campaign. Hilton complains of the blatant photoshop-job surrounding Jude’s sudden wealth of hair, hence the equally blatant ‘FAKE’ scrawled across the image in trademark Perez style!

JustJared reports that Jude was shot by Australian photographer Daniel Askill in May, on location in the Bahamas. Askill says of the fragrance campaign; “it was hard for me to decide whether to take it on because I had directed an ad for Dior before with Hedi [Slimane], it was one of the last major projects before he left, so it was a very tumultuous time.”

Keep reading for more details and backstage (behind the camera?) gossip!

Hedi Slimane contemplating comeback

By admin on July 15th, 2008

hedi.jpgKriss Van Assche must be shaking in his billowing trousers right now. Hedi Slimane is contemplating a return to fashion, according to DNR news. When asked about his desire to rejoin the fashion the world he answered “Of course, But it has to be right–the right project”. Little else is known about the label, except that it will more than likely be under his own name.

In his spare time, Slimane has returned to photography, which was something has been interested in since he was a child. The result of this is Rock Diary, which is a photography book focusing on music fans at last year’s Benicàssim.

Kanye West wears Pastelle hoody to Dior Homme show

By admin on July 10th, 2008

pastelle-hoodie-preview.jpgJust in case you weren’t sure it existed, here’s a sneak peek at Kanye West’s upcoming Pastelle line. West wore this hoody to Dior Homme’s Paris show and it’s called ‘The Warrior’, due to its design being inspired by a suit of Armour. The warrior is made from several materials, including leather, felt & mesh, so we can assume Pastelle will be a mid to high end brand. With some assuming that the launch would get pushed back, it’s nice to see a little piece of it appear.

Rykiel Homme grey jeans

By admin on June 20th, 2008

rykieljeans.jpgSeeing as Rykiel Homme is closing down, their clothes will make the transition from good piece to collector’s item. Before that transition is made, a lot of it goes on sale. This brings us to these Rykiel Homme jeans.

These jeans look like a toned down version of those radioactive Dior Homme jeans that Kanye West put up on his blog a while back. The muted colouring is still sharp enough to stand out from other jeans and they’re also about £200 cheaper than the Dior version. You can get these from the corner for £84.

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.

Dior silver suit – Yay or Nay?

By admin on April 16th, 2008

diorsilversuit.jpgFirst things first – why are the pictures on Yoox.com of such poor quality? They make Asos.com’s pictures look like a Rankin masterpiece. I wouldn’t usually complain about these things, but when it comes to this Dior Homme silver suit, you need high quality pictures to make a decision.

I’m in two minds about this suit, hence the yay or nay question. The first problem is the functionality of this piece. Unless you were an musician you would have nowhere to wear it to. It’s too flashy for work and too sharp for a casual night out. While it seems to be aiming to be worn by Kanye West, its closer to a Graham Norton outfit.

On the other hand, who cares about functionality? If you’ve established yourself as a leftfield dresser, you could easily wear this to work without anyone batting an eyelid. Well, they probably would bat an eyelid, but only because they were dazzled by the brilliance of your suit.

So what is it to be? Yay or Nay? Like a Beijing Olympics participant, I’m remaining firmly on the fence.

You Would If You Could… The Awkward Lengths

By Will Reid on March 13th, 2008

00360mThe next look to make our list is the awkward length. This was a hard one to put into this feature as some do manage to pull it off but not everyone is Terence Koh and it only took a look at the local fashionisto’s crash and burn outfit of Kris van Assche-style combat with tight tee to know that this was one to be hastily put down.

So where did it all go wrong? When did the matronliness of Britain extend to Dolce & Gabbana jodhpurs and McQueen knits? At D&G, trousers were either tucked into boots or (sharp intake of breath) fitted with elasticated hems- yes, the same fabric responsible for the horrific Rocky Balboa-tracksuit/pantaloon ankle. McQueen went for his usual unwearable but exquisite fashions and approached this trend with a blend of Alpaca knit and Spanish embroidery. Some celebs have tried to wear this look but unless you are an artist/indie fashion editor/musician/girlfriend of Irina Lazareanu-type, it’s best to stay away. For those of you willing to take on the challenge and prove me wrong- take a look at this Rick Owens thigh-length top from Brown’s.

Malnourished Models? – The New York Times

By Will Reid on February 11th, 2008

00012m_5I just found this article from the New York Times on the trend for skinny male models. In the article, Guy Trebay credits Hedi Slimane with popularising the waif-like silhouette for the modern man. I personally don’t think they’re too far off the mark as although glossy, silver-coated and decadently tailored, we only have to look at the pictures of the model who’s backside could barely fit into a pair of Dior Homme jeans to know that all is not what it seems when it comes to the traditional ‘beefcake’ image of male models.

So after my recent post on male-to-female trend transition, could we be inheriting another aspect of the fashion universe? I really hope not- there is already enough pressure on my waistline! See after the jump for a rather excruciating example of Hedi’s ‘beauty is pain’ denim.

More news from Paris: Kris van Assche vs. Dior Homme

By admin on January 27th, 2008

Kva

It’s hard to criticise Kris van Assche. He’s got such a likable wee face and he seems like a sincere intelligent bloke, as you can see from this interview with Suzy Menkes, the grande dame of fashion journalism. Gotta love Suzy. Her interview style swings between mumsy and slightly creepy and they both seem horribly embarrassed by the size of Suzy’s boom-mike. Don’t look at it Suzy!
