Gallery: Giles Deacon’s first menswear collection for New Look

By admin on November 21st, 2008

Giles Deacon‘s first ever menswear collection hit the shops yesterday, the 25-piece collection is made up of wearable wardrobe basics. T-shirts, jeans, jackets and shirts are all given the Giles touch with neon detailing and gold chains. This is good news for men’s fashion as it seems that every designer/high street collab now has a menswear range, and not a minute too soon.
We’ve picked out a selection from the collection which is available to buy in New Look stores or online. I think my favourite piece is the grey striped shirt with coral-lined cuffs, what’s yours?

Rokit khaki jumper

Yesterday’s Love the Look outfit featured a slouchy green cardigan which acted as the showpiece for a palette of neutrals.

Rokit’s jumper is a similarly warm shade of khaki that would look great teamed in a similar fashion with grey trousers, tan shoes and maybe with a gold watch to bring out the rich tones of green. It’s very thick which suggests it is probably army surplus and would make a hassle-free substitute for a jacket and will only set you back £15.

Love the Look: green cardigan

This man’s outfit is an exercise in faux simplicity: the slouchy cardigan, loose fit jeans and slipperesque moccasins all lull you into a false feeling of insouciance.

Take another look and you notice how the belt and gold buttons pick up the colour of the shoes. This adds richness and warmth to the outfit and contrasts with the flat grey blouson. The white t-shirt peeking through gives a jolt of freshness and the neatly tied neckerchief adds another layer of interest.

Tavi Tells The Truth: A Man And His Gold Coat

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

goldjacket.jpgTavi, the girl-wonder-blogger with a fashion sense so incredibly brilliant I feel like crying when I ‘m reading her blog, has found this picture and decided that she wants to marry the wearer of this great, gold jacket.

I’m okay with just being his friend but it is an undoubtedly fantastic image.

Now, the only question is where to find that jacket.

Casio’s black watch hides its skeezyness behind a black resin strap

By admin on September 18th, 2008

casio black resin strap watch 80s retro.jpgI know Casio watches are a bit ubiquitous nowadays but I’m still hankering after a gold Dual Time Casio for that sleazy uncle/skeezy factor. There’s something amazingly creepy about having two kinds of time on one watch, and I love it.

For a less tacky and more durable (in trend terms anyway) go for the the black resin strap version. It hides its ’80s retro geeky looks under a cloak of minimalist respectability fooling people into thinking it’s a plain old boring watch. Furthermore it does all of this for the utterly stupid price of £10.97, brilliant!

Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Light

You should all be grateful. I was this close to typing ‘Converse starts boxing clever’ in that headline. It’s hard to talk about these Converses without thinking about boxing as the reduction of the sole makes them look more suited for 12 rounds in the ring.

As far as gold trainers go these are ok, but they don’t look better than the other pair of gold Converses we posted a while back. If you like the boxing-style ones better, they’ll be available from next week.

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.

Metallic Converse trainers

By admin on February 11th, 2008

A wise man once said, ‘you can never have enough Converse all stars’. Clearly he was wrong, but you could always do with adding some metallic colours to your shoe wardrobe. Getting a pair of Converse in gold or silver should set you on the right path.

I know what you’re thinking. They look too span-dangly. Don’t worry, they’re actually quite understated for a metallic gold trainer. Well, they as understated as a pair of gold trainers can be, you’ll still stand out from pretty much everyone with these on your feet. But that’s a good thing.

Gold Shellys shoes

By ShinyMedia on May 2nd, 2007

Shellys

Just in case you didn’t know here’s a little reminder: metallics are way in this summer. From Comme des Garcons’ gold saturated show, to Preston Ordinary Boys’ strop on Never Mind The Buzzcocks in a silver sequinned Burberry cardigan metallics are everywhere. If you feel like incorporating a little glitz into your wardrobe these gold trainers from Shellys (£70) are perfect, the slightly burnished colour makes them a lot more wearable than yellowish golds and they look very discreet when teamed with jeans.
