Jeremy Scott tyre print jogging bottoms

By admin on August 7th, 2008

jeremy scott pyjama tyre print jogging bottoms twosee.jpgPyjama style pants were a big trend on the menswear catwalks and are set to break onto the high street next summer.

Be one step ahead and snap up Jeremy Scott’s jogging bottoms at TwoSee, the tyre print is reminiscent of the ikat prints we’ve seen all over the high street and they’re reduced from £205 to £153.75. The voluminous shape dictates a pairing with a fine-knit slim tee so that you don’t look swamped. Add some white canvas pumps to give you an edgy but simple summer outfit.

Luca Rubinacci in lavender and mustard

By admin on August 6th, 2008

luca rabinucci sartorialist scott schuman.jpgThe Sartorialist snapped Luca Rubinacci, son of Italian tailor Mariano Rubbinaci looking resplendent in a tricky combination of lavender and mustard.

His white jeans add freshness to the look and note the pale stripe shirt, which stops the outfit from looking too blocky. I like the quirky touch of a few (Indian ?) bangles and I can never overlook a pair of tasselled loafers.

After the jump I’ve picked out a few lavender and mustard items to get the look, and a great A.P.C shirt to tone it all down.

Esser’s Headlock video is your fashion homework

By admin on August 5th, 2008


Not only is ex-Ladyfuzz Ben Esser‘s latest release the most unbelievably catchy song you’ll hear this side of summer but the video for ‘Headlock’ is as we say in fashion parlance ‘bang on trend’. The early ’80s look has been bubbling under for a good while now and it sort of crystallised with the release of Shane Meadows’ ‘This is England’. Loafers are a must, and although I’d say Esser’s turn-ups are a little off he has the rudeboy look down pat. Back to the music, Headlock was released this week and is available on free download from Esser’s MySpace.

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

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.

David Beckham and Zac Efron sport waistcoats at the Teen Choice Awards

By admin on August 4th, 2008

david beckham zac efron teen choice.jpgDavid Beckham was pictured this week at the Teen Choice Awards in a waistcoat and check shirt combo. Teamed with a pair of jeans it’s a good way to add some smarts to a relaxed outfit.

High School Musical’s Zac Efron took a similar tack and wore his white polo with a tailored grey waistcoat for a classic, fresh look. To emulate Efron and Beckham’s look pick up a waistcoat from Topman or Burton; you can also get do a good selection of secondhand waistcoats from Rokit. Waistcoats can sometimes look a little newsboy or even worse, Boyzone circa 1996 so try to steer clear of anything too retro, like wide-leg pants with turn-ups or baker boy caps.

Givenchy persuades Justin Timberlake to wear fragrance

By admin on August 1st, 2008

justin timberlake givenchy play.jpgJustin Timberlake is abandoning his decade-old au naturel smell to become the face of new Givenchy scent ‘Play’. The singer was reluctant to smell of anything other than eau de Justin until Givenchy persuaded him that he would enjoy wearing the fragrance.

Timberlake told GQ: “First of all, I haven’t worn cologne in 10 years, since the days when I’d drench myself, until I realised I didn’t want to smell like something else, I wanted to smell like myself.

So when Givenchy approached me, I said, ‘I gotta be honest, I don’t wear a fragrance. If you can get me to wear it, it’s gonna have to be good. If you can win over a guy who doesn’t wear fragrances, it’ll be something fresh.”

PPQ hosted a moving out party last night at their Conduit Street headquarters which was attended by Jaime Winstone, Ben Grimes and Peaches Geldof. Designers Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker themed the event as a “trash the carpet” party which was bound to encourage some rambunctiousness. Henry Holland turned up with a new darker hairdo and sporting a pair of lowkey denim cutoffs. He livened the outfit up with a jacket in what’s become his trademark vivid purple. Across town Jefferson Hack was djing at the Dazed and Confused with a summery looking Alice Dellal.

short shorts facehunter style salvage.jpgShorts shorts disappeared off the radar for a bit at Brandish but the sun has come out, the Sartorialist is obsessing over cuffing and at Style Salvage they’re getting all heated over the guy on the left, so they’re back on our minds.
