Jack Osbourne and guest attending the 'Total Recall' premiere held at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California on August 01, 2012.

Hollywood hellraiser Colin Farrell took to the red carpet at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles last night for the premiere of his new sci-flick ‘Total Recall’.

Looking dapper in head-to-toe Dolce & Gabbana, Farrell’s new movie is a remake of the 1990 Schwarzenegger cult classic of the same name. Directed by Len Wiseman and also starring Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel,  Bryan Cranston and John Cho, it follows factory worker Douglas Quaid who discovers he is a lean, mean, double agent killing machine after a routine memory implant operation uncovers memories of his former deadly life.

We’ve got all the shots from the red carpet above, including snaps of guests Ozzy, Sharon and Jack Osbourne.

‘Total Recall’ hits UK cinemas nationwide on 29 August 2012.

Womenswear gets its cues from Menswear

By admin on April 21st, 2009

Chances are if you’re a Brandish reader then you’re already well aware of the importance of menswear, but today Jean Schneides in WWD did some catwalk investigating and concluded that you need to keep one on the menswear collections at all times, if you want a preview of what the womenswear collections will look like a few weeks or months later.

We’ve already discussed that womenswear trends like ombré filter through onto the menswear catwalks a season or two later, but take a look at the gallery to see which designers have been looking to their menswear collections for inspiration.

Armani clashes with Dolce & Gabbana over trousers

By admin on January 20th, 2009


Dolce & Gabbana’s recent catwalk show

An epic fashion row has erupted over a pair of quilted silk trousers seen on both the D&G and Armani catwalks at the Milan menswear shows.

Armani started it all by saying: “Now they copy, later they will learn.”

Then Dolce & Gabbana took it up a notch stating: “For sure we have much to learn – but certainly not from him.” They said Armani “has never been a source of inspiration for us and we stopped seeing his shows years ago”. The design duo ended it with a whopper of a statement: “As Picasso used to say – copying from others is inevitable but copying from oneself leads to sterility.”

Christmas is over: buy yourself some pyjamas

By Colin Chapman on December 29th, 2008

pyjamasJan09.jpg

January looms and you’re trying very hard to wear proper clothes again, but really there couldn’t be a better time to invest in some lovely pyjamas.

Isabelle’s post on finding inspiration in classic movies like It Happened One Night, left me thinking just how fantastic Mr Gable looked in his pyjamas. Meanwhile The Sartorialist posted recently on how he’d decided to take sartorialism into the bedroom by investing in some stylish PJs.

If you need more convincing, nightwear as daywear will be a feature of S/S 09, (at least as interpreted by Dolce & Gabbana) and we’ll be all vertical stripes and drawstring pants by then so why not get some practice in? No doubt anti-fashion writer Alexis Petridis (The Guardian magazine) will be deriding the PJ trend soon but don’t let the sight of him in nightwear put you off.

Brands? Derek Rose (from Selfridges and online) is the prince of PJs or try M&S .. your mother would be so proud.

GQ Upgrade: A style intervention

By admin on September 9th, 2008

gqupgrade.jpg
In addition to GQ’s well dressed rebel series, they are also hosting a fashion intervention for six men. Realizing there is a world of men who don’t pay any attention to their daily outfits, GQ sent out their fashion editors to upgrade the participant’s style.

The good thing about this article was that it didn’t attempt to change the person’s style, simply upgrading the look with similar clothes, colours and patterns in a much better fit. The bad side was that the ‘after’ looks could have been done just as well with more mid-range items, seeing as a 19 year old estimating contractor isn’t going to buy a Dolce & Gabbana blazer any time soon.

Celeb Style: Wallace & Gromit in Harvey Nichols Adverts!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008

wallaceand gromit.jpg

Wallace poses in a Paul Smith suit and Gromit sits with a Duchamp scarf and pair of Ray Ban ‘Wayfarers.’

Zooey Deschanel, Agy Deyn, Irina Lazareanu, Vanessa Paradis; the fashion world is known for it’s adopting of a different muse for each different season. However, while most muses can be linked by their quirky style, elfin features and statement look, Wallace & Gromit really stand out from the crowd.

That hasn’t stopped Harvey Nichols from enlisting their modeling talent for their latest campaign and decked out in D&G shirts, Alexander McQueen suits, Paul Smith scarfs and Ray Ban Wafarers, I’m actually quite jealous!

Read on for more details and pictures- it’s worth it, trust me!

Brandish Poll: Do You Diet?- And I Don’t Mean Butcher…

By Will Reid on July 17th, 2008

hommejeans3.jpgAs Beckham’s ‘people’ deny he’s been at all enhanced in the Armani pants department and Matt McConaughey is seen in D&G ads being hounded for his bod, it occurs to me that more than ever we men are striving for physical perfection.

More and more I am left sulking at lunch as male friends tell me they are banned from certain foods and no, before you ask, they’re not all gay. Or vain.

So, are you in with this phenomenon? Have you ever dieted or are you more of an iron-pumper?

Tell us in the poll below.

Trends: Watch & Wear- Navy SEAL Zeal

By Will Reid on April 30th, 2008

00010f.jpgList any of this season’s It-items and chances are they are water-related or wave-inspired. Yes, that means you boat shoe, loafer, plimsoll, striped tee and navy (hello!) blue shirt.

The mood is light yet determined and spray-in-the-face cool. Imagine sea-side escapades (emphasis on the imagine) and sand between your toes as you loosely raise that striped knit from your oversized Jil Sander mesh-holdall.

Look to the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton (left) and see after the jump for a full report of this operation. Oh, my fellow SEALs, the time has come for a full-scale suppression of those autumnal tones.

Top Five: Euroflash- Masculinity or Insecurity?

By Will Reid on April 14th, 2008

thirt.jpgWith guidebook and ability to say thank-you in tow, I was an innocent tourist. At least that was until I saw him from across the road. The letters emblazoned on his back in plush gold velvet shone with insecurity- “Vagina Lover.” Welcome to testosterone Euroflash-style.

It made me wonder about the power of sexuality through fashion. I’m not talking about the Azzedine Alaia flashing of flesh but the establishing of our own preference (and much more) through what we wear. A recent commentator on men.style claimed that the lowest thing a man could do was wear clothes that could be mistaken for women’s. Does that ban drainpipe denim, skinny scarves and thin knits (all within my wardrobe) from the outfits of the modern man. In my opinion a man of those opinions shouldn’t really be dabbling in the androgynous fashion industry. Read on for a Top Five of Euroflasher War Paint.

Matthew McConaughey at Fool’s Gold Premiere

By Will Reid on April 11th, 2008

foolsgold.JPG

Just last night, the city of London was buzzing with the excitement of celebrity; that of the glorious Kate Hudson and heavily scent-sponsored Matthew McConaughey. Now I’m not going to lie and pretend that Mr. McConaughey isn’t one of my favourite actors because well, even I don’t get that offended by sticking to the sartorial sidelines.

While Kate Hudson went all out in John Galliano, our male centre of attention decided to go for what I assume is a Dolce & Gabbana suit. I can’t fault the look itself- grey is in right now and the open-collar is a pleasing antidote to the stylised-Dandy of recent times. So full marks for style but what about effort? I can’t help feeling slightly miffed when someone with so much designer access neglects the right to riskier fashion.

But who am I to talk? I am sitting in my pyjamas at 1pm (Budapest time) with my just-recovered and now decidedly Hungarian laptop, moaning to myself about a lack of celebrity tailoring.

Jeans & Trousers

Dolce & Gabbana grey Jeans/trousers – Jousers?

By admin on April 11th, 2008

dior grey jeans.jpgFor some weird reason, Grey jeans are still hard to come by. That’s what makes these Dolce & Gabbana light jeans a god/allah/thereisnogod-send. While I love trousers, they can be slightly too flimsy for my tastes.

Navy jeans are better than black jeans in spring, but they also bleed onto the trainer. The bleeding is incredibly annoying when you’ve just bought a brand new pair of white hi-tops and don’t want a stain on them – only to find there’s a blue outline around the heel of the trainer that you can’t seem to scrub off, so you spend ages cleaning them with an old toothbrush and some Cillit Bang. Not that I did any of this.

But I digress. At £270 these are pretty steep, but its best you look at it as an investment that can be worn during all seasons for all occasions. Or just treat yourself and feel slightly guilty afterwards.

Dolce and Gabbana Watch

By admin on April 3rd, 2008

dgwatch.jpg

Watches that ask philosophical questions
are the new black/brown/whatever the old thing was. If you’ve ever wanted
a D&G watch but felt they were missing that intangible ‘it’ factor, then
this Dolce
& Gabbana High Security watch
is the timepiece for you. It manages the
amazing feat of asking ‘why not today’ whilst showing the time and the date. All that’s missing is a
free call to a life coach.

Cynicism aside, this is a very pretty
watch. The leather straps are buttery soft and the face is surprisingly
readable for something that seems so cluttered in pictures. You can get these
for an RRP of £175 from any large boutique.

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.
