Iggy- That’s Not What We Meant By The New ‘It’ Shoe!

Iggy Pop has, in previous seasons, been declared by designers as high-fashion inspiration. And for many valid reasons; he rocked skinny leather trousers long before Kate Moss, meddled with blood long before Angelina Jolie and played the effeminate rocker with crazy hair long before Russell Brand.

But when Brandish’s own Isabelle reported on the menswear trend of ‘Medges,’ (men’s footwear with a Wedge heel,) no-one was expecting the trend to filter down to Crocs.

As good old Oscar Wilde once mused, “fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Well, there’s no time like the present!

Playboy’s Rock the Rabbit campaign

I can’t say I’ve ever thought of looking at Playboy for clothing, but this Rock the Rabbit campaign is slowly changing my mind. In their second year they’ve roped established musicians like Iggy Pop, Daft Punk and Duran Duran amongst relative up and comers like Hot Chip and Tokyo Police Club.

The stand out of this collection is the Iggy Pop shirt which features a portrait of him with bunny ears. The close runners up are by The Little Ones and Hot Chip. You can buy a selection of these from Playboy’s site for £20.


Isle of Wight Festival: Tim Booth, Iggy Pop and Pharrell Williams

tim booth james isle of wight festival.jpgWhatever happened to Tim Booth?

These pictures taken at the Isle of Wight festival over the weekend are a million miles away from the foppish youth I remember from the early ’90s. I know twenty years have passed -god forbid anyone should ruthlessly pick apart my looks in twenty years time; but that is never an excuse for a shaved head and overcompensating beard. Masking baldness with a freshly razored head is so outdated now that I’d prefer to see a combover than a baby soft shiny pate.

And is it just me or do I spy a touch of Just For Men on the goatee? I’m not even going to start on the soul patch. See after the jump for some more inspiring looks from Pharrell Williams and Iggy Pop.

Raw Power Al Pacino t-shirt

By admin on March 11th, 2008

The thing with pictures of celebrity
t-shirts is that they always tend to use pictures of them in their heyday – or
in Michael Jackson’s case, when they had a face that resembled a human being.
This Raw
Power Al Pacino tee
is no different. But let’s face it, no one wants a
picture of Pacino as he looks now on a t-shirt. Even if they loved S1m0ne (if
you know anyone who does love or even like S1im0ne, then call your nearest
mental health institution. Now)

Raw Power have been making these mugshot
tees for a while now and this Pacino one is the strongest out of a strong
bunch. It’s £32.99 and available from Elements.

Buckler, a label to watch

By admin on December 19th, 2007

are who All Saints wish they were. Worn by legends like Iggy Pop and
oxygen thieves like Snow Patrol, They specialise in tailored fits. Basically
they’re an upscale All Saints. Even their logos are similar. Thankfully, their
knitwear is much more solidly made, managing not to feel like it’s going to
waste away if you dare put it in the wash.

They do have an online store but it only
sells one pair of boxer briefs. The picture of the boxers in hand is graphic to
say the least; tight white boxers reveal a little too much under sharp
photography. They do sell in Selfridges amongst other popular stores and will hopefully be fully available online later on next year.
