Love the Look: Blue and Grey

Grey on top, blue below. It’s like a colour version of a mullet, business at the front, party at the back and works really well.
Keeping the top half neutral and grey makes the blue denim really pop, and having a blue bag in a similar colour is a clever touch. Layering a blazer over a jumper and shirt is an easy way to keep warm in warm and gives off relaxed, smart vibes.

Moncler puffa jacket from Start

By admin on October 28th, 2008

moncler grey wool jacket puffa puffer start.jpgMoncler have done for the puffa jacket what David Beckham did for ponytails when he moved to Real Madrid.

Their Gamme Rouge collection for women has elevated the simple puffer to a work of art, and while this Moncler jacket (£785) isn’t on a one-way journey to Kookytown it’s pretty special.

Featuring an impressive 220 grams of down in each jacket and a hidden elasticised waistband this ain’t no NAFF Co 54 market offering that will leave you shivering at the bus stop. The grey wool is a smart choice easily taking you from the rugged outdoors to the city in one fell swoop.

McQ by Alexander McQueen ruched pleat cardigan

By admin on October 27th, 2008

asos alexander mcqueen cardigan grey mcq.jpgGrey cardigans are a bit of an obsession for me, and with reason. The colour looks great with neutrals or brights and it makes the perfect unobtrusive cover-up.

This grey cardigan from Alexander McQueen’s McQ range has got an asymmetric fastening with ruching detail. The detailing is subtle enough for everyday wear buta bit more interesting than your average cardie. Available from Asos for £215 it’s the kind of item that will give you a sense of class and smart with minimum effort.

Farfetch, a virtual smorgasbord of menswear

By admin on October 14th, 2008

farfetch walter van bierendonck helmut lang date designer.jpg
I wrote about Farfetch last week on Catwalk Queen but proportionally speaking it’s far bigger news for menswear. There aren’t many online stores that can boast designers like Jil Sander, YSL as well as newer names like Surface 2 Air all under one roof and when you consider the dearth of options on the high street a site like this is even more vital.
Here are a few of my picks from the site, a really satisfying pair of trainers, a witty patterned scarf and the Helmut Lang shirt is the most perfect shade of grey I’ve ever seen. Full product details after the cut.

Clarks Originals Desert Boot goes metal

The Desert Boot is a design classic and is one of those items which never really goes out of style. I recently saw a well-dressed chap on the street sporting a suede pair with some tracksuit-bottom style cuffed trousers and it made a great outfit.

Clarks Originals
have some great traditional colours available for Autumn, their Desert Boot comes in cream, tan and ebony. They’ve also updated the look and brought out a pair in shimmering peach or silver and they’re about a hundred times better looking than they sound on paper.

The peach pair would look great with some faded grey jeans and in my dreams I’d love to see the silver pair as part of an all-metallic outfit… What? Pictures after the jump.

Love the Look: Jaakko on Hel Looks

By admin on September 22nd, 2008

jaako hel looks love the look.jpg
It’s a simple look but Jaakko’s tonal outfit posted on Hel Looks a few days ago hits the fashion spot. Breaking up the monotony with a patterned scarf is a wise move and he shows that black and brown can be worn together (more about this soon) without incurring the wrath of the fashion gods. He namechecks Raf Simons, A.P.C and Surface to Air in his outfit rundown and on top of that he is rocking a pretty amazing moustache, bravo!

Missoni button-neck knit

By admin on September 10th, 2008

missoni knit jumper.jpg
Autumn has arrived and with it comes all those lovely warm autumnal colours like aubergine, pumpkin and burgundy. Missoni‘s knit button neck jumper combines all of these with a buttercup yellow, a navy and a grey to stop it looking too fusty.
The deep v-neck will allow you to show off a t-shirt, clashing shirt, or even dare I say it a polo neck. Get it from Browns for £430; winter layering has never been so hot.

Reader request: skinny grey jeans

By admin on September 1st, 2008

As you can probably tell comments are down on Brandish, so when Nick emailed me asking about grey skinny jeans I clapped my hands together in excitement… A clothing hunt!
I went looking all over the internet for some grey skinny jeans with reasonable success. Hopefully there’s something here for you Nick and if anyone else wants me to don my web-hunting gear or just have a chat about clothes send me an email to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.

All Saints Dip Dye grey marl t-shirt

By admin on August 21st, 2008

dip dye all saints grey marl tee shirt.jpgConjuring up various images from NYC joggers in the ’80s to hip young things in tri-blend, grey marl is infinitely stylish. All Saints’ Dip Dye t-shirt has two-toned sewn panels creating a pleasing layered effect without the bulk.

For an upmarket look wear this top with slim, drainpipe charcoal jeans and a few simple badges to provide a focal point. At £35 it’s a reasonable price for a piece that will breathe the kiss of life into your everyday outfits.

Oliver Spencer jacket from Sarah Coggles

By admin on August 18th, 2008

oliver spencer jacket grey sarah coggles.jpg

Neat mod-ish tailoring and large retro buttons make for an appealing jacket which is neither fusty nor faddy. If you’ve already got a half dozen zip up nylon jackets and fancy something a little different and smarter then snap this Oliver Spencer jacket up from Sarah Coggles for the sale price of £117.50. The warm dove-tone is less harsh than a straight grey and the linen mix ramps up the formality a notch.

Gola Valiant Hi-Top from asos

By admin on August 13th, 2008

gola valiant hi-top asos trainer grey retro.jpgWhen Jason featured Generic Man recently I oohed and aahed at the simplicity of it all. As someone who loves COS, Uniqlo and designers like Margaret Howell and Patrik Ervell, the pared-down stylings are right up my street.

Gola’s Valiant Hi-Top (£40) from asos offer the same unpretentiousness and good looks but in an altogether more obviously sporty package. The perforated uppers are a subtly retro touch and still a firm favourite of mine. Wear them with slim jeans and a branded polo or white shirt for a bit of a chavvy luxe look. Yes I’m serious, I spotted someone at the weekend with Y-3 trainers, a YSL shirt and a number one, and it looked awesome.

Adam Kimmel polo neck

By admin on August 12th, 2008

adam kimmel grey jumper knit polo.jpgPolo necks are still too Alan Partridge for me; as much as I love our man from Norwich the thought of actually wearing one fills me with dread. Polo necks conjure up images of saintly vicars and friend’s dads, not high fashion.

Adam Kimmel‘s slouchy cowl-neck version of the polo is perfect for fellow fence-sitters, you can roll it up if you’re feeling brave or keep the collar down. The marl-y grey colour is versatile and smart enough for formal looks, and the black trim adds definition to the silhouette. Snap it up for £270 from The Corner.

La Rentrée: Time for French Connection’s Airspeed Cardigan

By admin on August 5th, 2008

french connection airstrip cardigan grey.jpgAugust is traditionally the month when France shuts down, goes on holiday and people start thinking about ‘La Rentrée’. You could call it the French New Year as the whole country gets gripped by ‘Rentrée’ fever, not just schoolchildren but grown adults too.

Around late August with thoughts of the Rentrée ingrained into my mind I always start feeling a little more preppy, and a little more traditional. French Connection’s Airspeed cardigan (£90) diligently ticks all these boxes and instills the excitment of the Back to School feeling even though it’s been a mighty long time since I set foot in a school! The front placket is a nice detail and with the contrasting pockets it’s a smart choice for winter.

A.P.C chambray shirt on sale at Penelope’s

By admin on August 4th, 2008

shades of greige shirt check grey penelope sale.jpgChecks have been on the fashion radar for a while but now they seem to have snowballed and there’ll be no escaping the trend this autumn.

This Shades of Greige check shirt ticks the all check boxes and the grey and white combo is slightly more interesting than your indie uniform of trad plaid.

The lumberjack look is going to be big this winter but subtler pieces like this shirt will see you through the dying days of summer in style. It’s reduced to $59 at Penelope’s and will look great teamed with other soft neutrals.
