Brandish Exclusive! Interview with Nickque Patterson, Fashionisto Supreme pt1

By wreid on June 16th, 2009

4313_97016153972_563923972_2668847_2262474_n.jpgNickque Patterson is setting the London fashion world alight- slowly but surely. As a stylist, DJ, designer and all-round fashionisto persona, Nickque is one of those people for whom every street is a real-life catwalk. Whether in front of the camera as a model or working behind the scenes orchestrating an edgy editorial, Patterson knows the trends and makes fashion happen.

Ever so fortunately, he was excited to be interviewed for Brandish and after the jump we have his full interview. Prepare for shoes described as ‘elite,’ Nickque’s self-decided role as the “Jesus of Fashion” and grooming-secrets (just check out the hair!)

We love him!

WISHLIST: H&M A/W 2009 Crushed Velvet Coat

By Will Reid on May 13th, 2009

hmThe more I write about summer clothes, and slowly accept that summer isn’t actually coming, I look to next winter and start structuring my cold wardrobe. Coats are a notoriously hard thing to get right and a single inch too short or too long can ruin not only an entire look, but an entire wardrobe (well, almost.)

The Fashionisto
has lifted the lid on the latest H&M collection for A/W 2009 and this faux-crushed velvet coat has a bit of an edge on other high-street pieces. With what looks like a simple collar and in solid black, the material of this coat allows it to be easily worn with any items while being a stand-out piece in itself.

I would keep to simple tones but contrast fabrics and textures to build up the layers of an elaborate get-up. Throw in a bit of tacky bling-age to mix up the expensive looking coat but keep it minimal; garish garb is best when less.

How far is TOO far? Taking inspiration from Womenswear…

By Will Reid on May 12th, 2009

IMG_8378.jpgOver the last few years, with the trends having covered skinny jeans, unisex mods, sexually-liberated hippies, shoulder pads, guy/girl jumpsuits and the his/her Eighties where basically anything went, I have tried my hand at many trends that tread the fine line between menswear and womenswear.

This photo recently appeared on Facehunter and, while originally in awe of this fashionisto’s rose accessory, I began to wonder if it would be one step too far and throw me into the realm of uncomfortable dressing (a fatal flaw when it comes to styling!) I happily carry a man-bag and have even experimented with Guyliner in recent months but I couldn’t be sure that I would feel okay with an accessory like the one above. Would you be willing too wear something so overtly feminine or do you like to stick within the traditional fashion sex boundaries?

Nicola Formichetti, the fashion extraordinaire and creative director of Dazed & Confused, writes an awesome blog which he manages to update almost three times a week. With pictures from his various trips, nights out, karaoke parties and Tokyo fashion-fests, the blog is a treasure trove of great images and this is no different. The pic was only put up yesterday morning and it shows some of Nicola’s friends posing on a night out in London. I love the leopard-print beanie of the fashionisto on the left and the fur collar of the guy on the right looks like a necessary luxury for the altogether depressing Baltic temperatures we have been feeling in recent times.

Go to Nicola’s blog for more pictures of his glamourous life!

Bloggerlove: Style Salvage’s Men Represent

By admin on September 11th, 2008

men represent the sartorialist stylish man.jpgNow is a great time for menswear, everyone from designer to high street is paying more attention to men’s clothing and it seems like the bar has been well and truly raised. The Style Salvage duo kicked off their Men Represent scheme a while back, and now they’re dusting it off and want you involved. They want stylish men to email in their five essential wardrobe items, show off their outfits or just have a chat.

It’s an admirable idea, and I love anything which increases the profile of stylish men around the world. So if you want to become part of an international community of fashionistos get thee to Style Salvage!
