The pic was only put up yesterday morning and it shows some of Nicola’s friends posing on a night out in London.

Gareth Pugh for Topman

Jonathan Smith Designer Spotlight Leave a Comment

gareth-pugh-topshop-christmas-tree-2-340x540.jpg

Well it’s technically Topshop I suppose, and it’s not clothes either so this post is kinda losing its relevance however I shall persevere. For Topshop this (festive) season Gareth Pugh has created a Christmas tree out of those most nontraditional of materials: neon light bulbs. Gareth has used 60 neon bulbs to create this rather lack luster tree that has no tinsel, shiny glass ornaments or even a fairy straddling the peak, minimal just isn’t Christmas. But check it out for yourself, the tree will be available to view at Topshop/Topman’s flag ship store at Oxford Circus.

Kidrobot x Shöfolk

Jonathan Smith Footwear Leave a Comment

shofolkkidrobot2.jpg

King of collabs, Kidrobot has collaborated (shocker) with Shöfolk to bring you this interesting piece of footwear. With a grey suede upper, cobalt blue sole and colourful “Kidrobot” detail on the ankle this shoe is perhaps a little more liberal for Shöfolk and a little more straight laced (pun intended) for Kidrobot than what they are both used to producing, but it works and works well.

Ever since Ronnie Wood ran off with his 18-year old mistress Ekaterina Ivanova, I have been keeping my eye on the new couple’s outfits. Throughout history, scandals have been defined by fashion; Princess Diana’s tiger-print swimsuit, Heather Mills’ patchwork suit, Monica Lewinsky’s ‘Blue Dress.’

Brandish Does Boulevard: The Second Bout of Street Style!

Will Reid Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Gallery, Outfit picks Leave a Comment

This gallery showcases some of the hottest street style looks I’ve seen in quite a while. Granted, some of the photography is a bit shifty (and the background of sun-washed Camden during the summer is enough to provoke resentment from most Brits,) but these looks are on-trend and rival a lot of professionally styled magazine editorials.

Brandish loves street style and there will definitely be more to come in the next few months. Just prepare for rain drops on the camera lens.

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.

Why So Serious DeNiro?- Oops, Wrong Film…

Will Reid Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

deniropacino.jpg

My bad! I may have the wrong film but I doubt such a slip-up would result in a look that miserable from Robert DeNiro? Might it be that he’s fed up with films? Maybe he (okay, clearly he) couldn’t be bothered to make the effort to dress up but my bet is that it’s standing next to Al Pacino who, as well as being an arguably equal competitor on the greatest actor front, actually look pretty good!

Read on for pictures including 50 Cent and other major stars as well as info about this cult-to-be film.

Obama watch 2008- “RocknRolla” world premiere

Some more Barack action for you after last weeks “O-Face” debacle where I, possibly incorrectly attributed the inspiration for the Barack “O-Face” Obama t-shirt to that scene in “Office Space” and was subsequently correct by Jason whose explanation does make more sense. In my defense may I say that on the UNDR-CRWN website “Office Space” is attributed as the inspiration for said T, so you know I’m not just making this stuff up. Just saying.

Brandish Feature: Drop-Crotch Demo

Will Reid Jeans & Trousers, Polls, Trends Leave a Comment

Drop-crotch jeans have been dubbed the ‘future of denim’ and ‘the next skinny jean.’ I am an unbelievable skinny devotee (yes, I am scarred after wearing them in Summer-heat London and not even joking) and for this reason, I decided to road-test an exclusive pre-production sample pair from Trousers London.

Brandish does Boulevard: Neal’s Yard

Will Reid Designer Spotlight, Entertainment, Gallery Leave a Comment

Here on Brandish we love a bit of sartorial realism. While Jason deals with cool buys and indie-labels, I tend to veer towards the bright lights of magazines and the high-octane glamour of ridiculously expensive items (WISHLIST anyone?) and the glossy adverts they inhabit.

I do love the high-street and so, with editor’s camera in hand and a trusty phone in the other (who knows what pickle one could get into asking for photos on the streets of Camden?) I set off to find London’s fashionistos.

A Vintage Find: My Retro Sunnies from Rokit

Will Reid Accessories, Clothing, Designer Spotlight, sunglasses Leave a Comment

I’m currently down in London, lapping up the (dubious) sunshine and attempting to dress in a way befitting of the cramped, and quite frankly grumpy, tube passengers. Turns out their not too pleased about being next to someone wearing a blazer with Margiela-esque shoulderpads. Basically, the heat is ridiculous and so yesterday I wondered into Convent Garden and bought some vintage sunglasses at Rokit.

Darius is Gone With The Wind, Literally…

And before I start I should probably apologise for that awful Daily Mail-used pun.

It is true though; Darius Danesh, the ‘Colourblind’ pop sensation, is said to be distraught this week as the cancellation of his latest venture (a musical adaptation of ‘Gone With The Wind’) is made public.
