Fatlace wants to know if Kanye West is homosexual or metrosexual

By admin on July 25th, 2008

kanye west louis vuitton blog fatlace.jpgFatlace isn’t particularly known for it’s politically correct stance, but nontheless when they asked whether Kanye West was homosexual or not t’other day I was still a little surprised. Surely the question should be ‘Does it matter whether Kanye West is homosexual?’ (and the answer should be no).

The poll in question came about after Kanye posted some images of his latest Louis Vuitton stash on his blog. Being a heterosexual female I know I can’t have the final word on homosexuality but I am convinced it doesn’t involve handbags! The man loves fashion, and we love him for it so do we really have to question someone’s sexuality just because they’re interested in clothes?

Depending on your viewpoint, sandals are either a great way to give your feet some air during the summer or an abomination that should be banned. This season, the gladiatorial sandal has made its high fashion debut, working its way into the collections of Burberry, Louis Vuitton and Basi. Are you for or against the Russell Crowe look? Vote on the poll after the jump.

Keith Richards gives his top London tips for Louis Vuitton

By admin on April 30th, 2008


Louis Vuitton have made a nice little video with Keith Richards, who describes his favourite bits of London in his trademark 60-a-day voice. I like the way it’s quite loosely structured and informal, but I do think that when he says at the end “London…Yeah…Travelling.” he sounds like he’s lost the plot. That’s what a lifetime of hedonism’ll do to you…Don’t do it kids, just say no!

Trends: Watch & Wear- Navy SEAL Zeal

By Will Reid on April 30th, 2008

00010f.jpgList any of this season’s It-items and chances are they are water-related or wave-inspired. Yes, that means you boat shoe, loafer, plimsoll, striped tee and navy (hello!) blue shirt.

The mood is light yet determined and spray-in-the-face cool. Imagine sea-side escapades (emphasis on the imagine) and sand between your toes as you loosely raise that striped knit from your oversized Jil Sander mesh-holdall.

Look to the collections of Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton (left) and see after the jump for a full report of this operation. Oh, my fellow SEALs, the time has come for a full-scale suppression of those autumnal tones.

Who’s the bigger style icon in the Rolling Stones, Keith Richards or Charlie Watt?

By admin on April 24th, 2008

Rolling Stones rocker Keith Richards may have recently fronted a major ad campaign for luxury label Louis Vuitton (and worn drainpipe jeans waaay before Kate Moss ever did), but he’s still pretty puzzled as to how he became the band’s major fashion icon.

Keef says bandmate Charlie Watts has always been “the most stylish member” of the group while he himself took to wearing his mam’s clothes…

We heard the rumours way back in January and the pictures are here. Keith Richards has been snapped by Annie Liebovitz for Louis Vuitton’s latest ad campaign which will make an appearance in April.

Antoine Arnault, Vuitton’s head of communications said "The good thing about Keith is, he’s big just about everywhere. He speaks to the 20-year-old who’s into rock ‘n’ roll and the 65-year-olds who went to [a Rolling Stones] concert when they were 20." Keef picked himself a leather jacket from a Vuitton store the day before the shoot. Click on the thumbnail to see full image.

Update: Ewan McGregor for Davidoff

By Will Reid on February 26th, 2008

Davidoff_adventure_ewan_mcgregor
A few weeks ago, I posted on the first pics from Ewan McGregor’s campaign for Davidoff’s ‘Adventure’ fragrance. So when this TV advert rudely interrupted my usual Sunday morning T4 routine, I was surprised to realise what it was. Unlike most luxury label adverts, this little film is subtle, succinct and pretty spectacular. It focuses around McGregor’s monologue on the usual blend of journey, travel, enlightenment and charitable experience but it is the stunning visuals which draws the viewer in.

I am beginning to think that this may be a trend in advertising; look at Louis Vuitton’s latest TV feature with wide-eyed travellers roaming the world in LV-labelled luggage. As I said before, McGregor is a relatable star and a man’s man- he’s not airbrushed or entourage-followed and this campaign only furthers my belief in Davidoff’s reinvention as a modern brand for the modern male.

See after the jump for Ewan’s latest televisual adventure (see what I did there?!)
