Everyone is guilty of it, (well not everyone, I have a colour-coded Google Docs spreadsheet, natch!) but last-minute Christmas shopping can often leave you with gifts that have an air of desperation about them.
These picks have something for every wallet and they all carry an air of “What this? I bought this in November” insouciance. The Habitat lamp is a tasteful nudge for every Ikea junkie, and the watch will help the wearer get the ‘Sexy Cab Driver’ look which is going to be very important in ’09. A ‘To Do’ tattoo list is useful when compiling all those New Year’s resolutions, and all the more useful because they’re temporary. Resolution, what resolution?!

Brandish Christmas Picks: Comme Des Garçons Christmas pouch

By Jonathan Smith on December 4th, 2008

comme-des-garcons-xmas-pouch-2.jpg

As Isabelle has mentioned and as you may be aware from the adverts that have been on your telly since the start of November (which is too early goddamit!) it’s Christmas time and time to start thinking of what gifts you’re going to ply your loved ones with. From Comme Des Garçons are these Christmas pouches, made from black leather and studded with Swarovski stones to spell out “Dec 2008″. Other than the lettering on the outside I’m not clear on what makes these so Christmassy, perhaps you could fill them with love to all men and seasonal good will. Also it occurs to me that if you pull this out to buy your ice cream in the height of summer, you’re going to look a little bit of a dick with your past season Christmas based pouch.

These will be available from Dover Street Market soon if you know of someone who needs a Christmas-based pouch. Jump through for more pics.

Brandish Inspiration: The Sartorialist Shoots Chanel Menswear in Fantastic Man 8

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

It’s that time of year when men and women of every age are all forgetting about work and turning their thoughts to something much more important- Christmas presents. I’m not talking about gifts for the slightly odd uncle or some flowers for that 80-year old neighbour who suddenly said ‘hello’ yesterday even though you heard she had died two months ago (just me?) I mean a Chanel Menswear tweed coat.

The great Karl Lagerfeld is no idiot when it comes to the gift-giving season and for the eighth issue of Fantastic Man, he has asked Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) to shoot the latest collection of elusive Chanel menswear for an article written by Charlie Porter. Wow.

Karl Lagerfeld: A Cuddly Bear for Children of Today?

By Will Reid on September 2nd, 2008

“Bears are very nice, as long as you are nice to them”

For a man who claims to not only feel no human emotion but to want no possessions, memories or immortilisation, Karl Lagerfeld sure likes to have his bedazzled fingers in a lot of different pies. After Grand Theft Auto, the Kaiser has collaborated with the German toy manufacturer Steiff on a Karl Lagerfeld teddy bear. That means a bear decked out in all the maestro’s signature pieces; the sunglasses, the rings, the high-collared shirt, skinny trousers, statement belt and skinny tie.
