Kanye West’s Pastelle preview

By admin on August 20th, 2008

Seeing as Mr. West is an established favourite here at Brandish, we feel it only fair to link to a sneak preview of his Pastelle line. As until now pictures of Pastelle clothing have been a rare joy and although the line is due out in November, this doesn’t look set to change. If Vman went through a load of hassle to get the pictures – the tagline reads ‘if only you knew what we went through to get these pictures’ – what hope is there for the rest of us?

The clothes themselves are wearable, if a little unremarkable, but I’ll assume that given the probable high price point they’ll be made using impeccable tailoring and materials. See the rest of the pictures after the jump.

Nooka Zoov Gold Watch

By admin on June 20th, 2008

nookagoldwatch.pngLupe Fiasco has a lot to answer for. I’ve been trying to figure out why I’ve been on the lookout for gold watches lately and I came to the conclusion that his song called, um, ‘Gold Watch’ has subconsciously influenced me.

The major problem with most gold watches is that they’re usually ‘utility’ watches, made for the kind of man who likes to pretend that he’s in the army and needs to know how many metres underwater his watch can go. This Nooka watch is for a realistic person, who just wants his watch to look nice. Get it from the Nooka website for £156.

Esquire magazine’s best dressed list

By admin on June 11th, 2008

Esquire magazine’s best dressed list has been gathering attention lately – mostly for not featuring David Beckham. Hopefully, other magazines will follow suit and realise that they’re not contractually obliged to include Mr Beckham on the list. People who did make the list include Jeremy Paxman, Barack Obama, Lapo Elkann, Fabio Capello, Christian Bale and Lupe Fiasco.

Kanye West is notably absent from the list and adding insult to omission, someone even manages to spell his name wrong. I wouldn’t describe Fiasco’s style as ‘outlandish hoodies and oversized trainers’ (how do they know his trainers are too big for him?) but West’s style is certainly more refined than Lupe’s.

Nas does Complex Cover shoot

By admin on June 11th, 2008

Non followers of Hip-Hop may be surprised to know Erykah Badu is widely credited with transforming Andre 3000′s – and to a lesser extent, Common’s – style. On the basis of this Complex cover shoot, you could say that Kelis is doing the same for Nas.

In the cover shoot – which was reminiscent of Lupe Fiasco’s first album – Nas dons Bottega Veneta, Prada and Marc Jacobs for a sportswear inspired shoot. The only top grade rapper left to jump upon the fashion bandwagon now is Jay-Z, who wears stylish clothes but refuses to slim down in any of his clothing – giving him the look of Tony Soprano rather than a fashion forward gentleman. I suspect that’s what he was going for.
