Brandish Inspiration: Prospective Dazed & Confused ‘British Youth’ Issue

By Will Reid on December 15th, 2008

dazed1.jpgFor their January issue, Dazed & Confused asked the youth of Britain to design a Dazed magazine cover based on a set of images Hedi Slimane photographed for the magazine. The issue came out last Thursday and the two black and white covers that were selected for the final copy (pictured after the jump) are very effective but, in my opinion, the image above (by ‘Jamie’) would have made a real statement and epitomised the revolutionary way of British youth today.

Love The Look: Nicola Formichetti’s Friends Out In London

By Will Reid on December 9th, 2008

Nicola Formichetti, the fashion extraordinaire and creative director of Dazed & Confused, writes an awesome blog which he manages to update almost three times a week. With pictures from his various trips, nights out, karaoke parties and Tokyo fashion-fests, the blog is a treasure trove of great images and this is no different. The pic was only put up yesterday morning and it shows some of Nicola’s friends posing on a night out in London. I love the leopard-print beanie of the fashionisto on the left and the fur collar of the guy on the right looks like a necessary luxury for the altogether depressing Baltic temperatures we have been feeling in recent times.

Go to Nicola’s blog for more pictures of his glamourous life!

Keifer Sutherland on the Last EVER Issue of Men’s Vogue?

By Will Reid on November 27th, 2008

0997130.jpgUsually, I like to write these magazine posts with as much information and detail as possible. I’m no stranger to the old hour of uploading just to give you the full low-down on that Dazed & Confused issue with “Tecktonick”dancer Kevin. The US Vogue ‘Superman’ issue with Tom Welling was packed with great pictures that were up on our beloved Brandish within hours of their release!

However, sometimes a hot story is worth posting even if the only information you have is a cover image…

Chace Crawford Shows His (Lack of) Fashion Colours!

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Only a few months ago, we told you of how Mario Testino had let it slip that Chace Crawford was to get the cover of VMAN. Since then, Chace has got his cover (although the Brandish team weren’t overly enthusiastic) and a whole new series of Gossip Girl has begun.

In this video, the Grazia Team give Chace their ‘Grazia Guy Fashion Quiz’ and the results are disastrous! I might work in fashion but I’m sure most Brandish readers could score better. What do you think?

Watch the video and then e-mail us to tell us how you do!

Men’s Vogue disappears

Further signs that the recession is affecting the fashion industry as Condé Nast announced their plan to absorb Men’s Vogue into its parent magazine Vogue. Editor in chief Jay Fielden is the only member of the magazine to be retained in the change and will reportedly be taking his assistant with him. Hopefully the cutbacks wont be affecting Vogue Homme International.

As well as Condé Nast, Hachette Filipacchi and Time Inc. are also cutting their staff numbers as advertisers hesitate to make firm commitments. Publishers say they are having trouble getting firm, longer-term commitments from advertisers who are having to make quick and strategic decisions.

James Franco does gingham

By admin on October 23rd, 2008

Click image to enlarge, full product details after the jump

Check has undeniable appeal but right now it’s a little overexposed so stick to something with a little more longevity. Make like James Franco and go for gingham, it’s a little more dressed up than indie plaid and has classic appeal. Trust Franco, he appeared on the cover of the last issue of Man About Town; although I’m not so sure I’d follow his footwear having seen long shoes in this picture.

Another Man A/W 2008- Viggo Mortensen, John Galliano, Steve McQueen, Lucien Freud and Christopher Bailey!

By Will Reid on October 9th, 2008

AnotherManFall-Winter20082009ViggoM-1.jpgThe latest issue of Another Man reads like a Who’s Who of not only the fashion industry but the world of art, music and acting. Jam-packed with features on Lucien Freud, a list of ‘Style Icon’ profiles scribed by the artistic elite and tribute stories to John Galliano (a designer who haunts my dreams,) and Martin Margiela (a designer who borders on haunting my nightmares.)

Dazed Digital tells us that the issue provides an “insight into the world of fashion with work from the world’s leading photographers and stylists including Nicola Formichetti, Norbert Schoerner, Alister Mackie, Gareth McConnell, David Armstrong, Tyler Udall, Serge Leblon, Bryan McMahon, Sandra Freij, Paul Wetherell, Mattias Karlsson, Lina Scheynius.”

David Walliams- Ladies Man, Transvestite, Children’s Book Author?

By Will Reid on October 8th, 2008

walliams.jpgDavid Walliams, the man who shot to stardom with the launch of Little Britain, has accomplished many things. He’s won a ton of awards, just launched state-side, swam across the English Channel and even been spotted with the likes of Natalie Imbruglia and Kate Moss on his arm. Now, the comedian had decided to write a book for children, ‘The Boy In The Dress,’ about a boy who likes to dress in female clothing and his journey to see the approval of his peers. Illustrated by Quentin Blake, I’m sure it will sell simply on shock factor but it would struggle to be as shocking as this editorial from Parade magazine.

In the editorial, Walliams struts his (hairy) stuff in designer couture in an effort to publicise his latest career move. Oh, dear.

See after the jump for all the photos- and it only gets worse!

Hey! Don’t think for one minute that I’m agreeing about the lack of menswear at LFW and the general confusion at the amount of fashion weeks (ahem!), but you should go and take a look at the rest of Sunday Best‘s most recent ‘One Leg at a Time’ cartoon. It’s pure teh fashion lolz.
On an admin tip, Man About Town magazine has the best fashion events calendar in their latest issue. It’s so useful I might even get it tattoed on one of my bumcheeks in a Reverend Peter Mullen-style protest.

Details magazine caught up with the three guys from Gossip Girl recently in an interview which saw Brit bad boy Ed Westwick proclaim he was Batman… Er, ok!

Co-stars Penn Badgley and Chace Crawford also get a grilling in the forthcoming issue, with Crawford making clear the intentions for his character: “I’m hoping for a fall from grace for Nate. Five years from now, I better have murdered someone!”

By Will Reid on September 8th, 2008

l'officielhommes.jpgL’Officiel Hommes has just launched in Singapore and their launch issue is a high-fashion, Dior Homme-loaded festival of sartorial savoir-faire.

By this I mean that we’re given great editorials with the likes of model Cole Mohr, photographer Milan Vukmirovic, and Dior Homme-designer Kris Van Assche directing a 10-page editorial featuring only Dior Homme clothes! The magazine has really pulled out all the stops for this issue and it is hopefully the precedent for a great future.

Computer Kylie? Moving Maddona? Esquire Bag The ‘First Ever Digital Cover!’

By Will Reid on August 26th, 2008

aliEsquire0468.jpgA fantastically over-the-top and outrageously extravagant magazine issue seems to be à la mode for the brand anniversaries of today. Lacoste reworked Visionaire for their 75th Anniversary and now Esquire, the mens lifestyle magazine, is celebrating their 75th (coincidence?) with the World’s first ‘Digital Cover.’ In Brandish speak: a cover that actually moves!

There will only be 100,000 copies of this issue and when it appears on newsstands come September, it will boast that “the 21st Century Begins Now!” The New York Times reports that the issue will come with an attached battery pack.

Who will get the cover- an undoubtedly huge boost for any career!

The Brandish Sphere of Influence- Mr Mills Style Column?

By Will Reid on July 23rd, 2008

mrmills2.jpgJust two weeks ago, Brandish reviewed the first edition of the Sunday Times Style Magazine’s ‘Mr Mills’ menswear and style column. I decided that Mills needed to brighten up a bit and make the column a little more cheery and summer-inclined if he was to hold the attention of readers. Well, call me egotistical, but is it pure coincidence that the latest edition of the column featured pieces on swim trunks, sunglasses, lime green hair oil and bright-coloured ties?

Jason also picked up on the possible influence of Brandish yesterday with a post on Taz of Sa-Ra. We’re not serious of course, but Mr Mills does look set to be a great read.

Vogue Germany- August 2008: Daniel Craig

By Will Reid on July 15th, 2008

“Before Breakfast, I Am No Style Icon.”

It was revealed yesterday afternoon that the latest issue of Vogue Germany has a multiple cover. One goes to Toni Garrn and the other to Brandish fave, Daniel Craig.

Daniel is shot by Rankin in a relatively boring editorial, and the cover headline is “Mr. Style & Mrs. Chic.” I like the colour palette of hot red with the white-light background and cool colours of Craig’s outfit, but the pout is a bit off and the turn of this good-looker’s head makes it look as if he has an odd and inflamed left-ear.

Read on for some shocking German translations and more details of this issue.
