WWWWD Delves into the Diet of Guy Ritchie!

By Will Reid on May 25th, 2009

guyritchieWell, not really but almost! WWWWD, aka the Worldwide Womenswear Digest, is a parody of popular fashion magazines and blogs. With an unknown founder and a readership that is growing massively with each day, the site gives tips and features on everyone and everything.

The latest ‘Body Issue’ tells readers how Gisele came about as the result of Sarah Jessica Parker and a sheep and how Gareth Pugh makes Kombucha with ingredients including his won urine and rose petals. Also lookout for Hugh Jackman’s rumoured gymwear line and Courtney Love’s new ‘POOP’ bulletin. It might be fake but it’s absolutely hilarious and has fashion tongues wagging worldwide!

As if the actual content wasn’t enough, the quest for knowledge of who is behind the e-zine has sparked many conspiracy theories and Fashionista went as far as to track down FedEx addresses and identities. Who knows what the next issue will entail- but trust that we’ll have coverage ASAP!

The image on the left is an example of Guy Ritchie’s ‘daily diet.’ Read on and enjoy by clicking here!

Love The Look: Artist Terrence Koh for United Bamboo

By Will Reid on January 22nd, 2009

terence koh for united bamboo 2.jpgThis week’s Love The Look features the wonderfully odd Terrence Koh (artist, fashionisto, sperm-collector, sculptor of crap and other bodily fluids.) Koh has just been made the face of hip label United Bamboo and the ad campaign for this season is an extravaganza of tinsel, blurry shots and classic tailoring with quirky details.

The image above and the rest of the campaign images after the jump will all debut in the Spring/ Summer issue of Fantastic Man.

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!)

Menswear by Mouret- Yes Please!

By Will Reid on November 20th, 2008

47b53d26-95a3-468c-8ebe-a2eb2b38dafb.jpgFashionista editor Natalie Hormilla has let it slip that Roland Mouret is set to make a menswear collection. It is rumoured to launch during the next men’s Fashion Week (A/W 2009) and Natalie rightfully points out that Roland is not the first high-end designer to have launched a menswear line in recent times. The news comes only one month after Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga showed men’s fashion in his catwalk collection.

Look out for more updates soon!

Here comes the inevitable news that Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is to release a book. It was only a matter of time before everyone’s favourite street style photographer got a book deal and word is that Harper Collins have agreed to publish the coffee table volume.

Over the last three years Schuman has amassed an awe-inspiring collection of photographs of the world’s most stylish people including Carine Roitfeld, André Benjamin and Anna Wintour. Hopefully it’ll be out by Christmas so I can start dropping hints, it’s already top of my wishlist!

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

rex_796866h.jpgFashionista, the site that is always in-the-know, has reported upon a WWD article that reveals tennis-supremo Rafael Nadal as the chosen face of French fashion-house Lanvin’s new fragrance for men, L’Homme Sport.

Nadal is the first tennis face to front the campaign of a French fashion house and the news of his appointment is causing quite the stir.

Brandish Poll: How Tidy Is Your Wardrobe?

By Will Reid on July 30th, 2008

ocd closet.jpgFashionista has been sent a pic of one reader’s wardrobe (above)- her shoeboxes are transparent, her clothes are colour-coordinated, everything is obsessively neat and you can only imagine she has an itsy-bit too much time on her hands. Brandish Editor Isabelle has opened up her wardrobe for a new Catwalk Queen feature and it’s certainly isn’t that meticulous!

So, while my wardrobe is most definitely not as organised as the Fashionista reader (I keep all my clothes in drawers and after too long away from home have a habit of living out of a suitcase,) we at Brandish want to know how tidy your wardrobe/closet/clothes space is?

Tell us in the poll below!

VMAN has just released a preview of their next issue (VMAN 11) and by the looks of this preview editorial, ‘Suit Yourself,’ it is going to be incredible. Reflecting V Magazine’s ‘The Women’ editorial, which took rich photography and a classic country manor to project an image of high-society living, this editorial tells a nostalgic story of traditional tailoring with almost grainy photography used to stunning effects.

The photographic wizard at hand is none other than David Sherry and the story is styled by Jay Massacret. VMAN introduces the editorial with “this year’s fall suits combine elegant fine tailoring, clean lines, and a whiff of smoky nostalgia.” A perfect introduction to a perfect editorial.

See after the jump for the entire editorial with product listings.

Pop It Like It’s Hot…Snoop Dogg’s Cognac Copy

By Will Reid on April 23rd, 2008

snoopdogg.jpgSnoop Dogg has some explaining to do! Over at Fashionista, they have spotted this rather blatant copy of Jean Paul Gaultier’s ‘Le Male’ perfume bottle for his new Landy Cognac ‘Desir’ bottle design. Snoop Dogg is the latest spokesperson for the alcohol brand but he seems to be running dry of ideas (pardon that shocking pun!) So what do you think- horrific homage or careless copy?

Kim Jones Short Fashion Flick

By Will Reid on April 3rd, 2008

youwear.JPGFashionista, the fashion gossip powerhouse, has stunned me with an exciting piece of news. I read about it just over a week ago but I did a bit of research and feel that I can just about explain these rather brilliant goings-on.

Diane Pernet, the extravagant fashion persona and founder of blog ‘A Shaded View on Fashion’ has come together with Dino Dinco to create a project varied enough it will excite anyone with even the slightest knowledge of fashion. The project is called ‘You Wear It Well’ and it is a touring exhibition of short fashion films made by some of the great clotheshorses of our time.
