By Will Reid on July 14th, 2008

The Farlex Free Dictionary decrees that Monday is “the second day of the week, and the first day of the working week.” That latter part means that for most of us, it is a ridiculously depressing day of hellish tasks and grumpy peers.

So why not add a dash of excitement with these pictures from the August 2008 issue of Dazed & Confused. From the title editorial, itself entitled ‘Dark Magic,’ I present to you Luke Worrall in high heels and other pieces of women’s clothing.

Read on for all the pics.

Mr Mills: The Sunday Times Style Magazine’s New Menswear Columnist

By Will Reid on July 10th, 2008

Thumbnail image for mrmills.jpgThe Sunday Times Style Magazine has, for me, always been a source of great fashion advice but on Sunday, it was the magazine’s new menswear columnist David Mills who I had my eye on.

In his first post (blogger-vocab just fills such a niche in the English language,) Mills talked of great British traditions and this ranged from an observation on cricket attire and classic socks to Huw Edward’s ties.

While entertaining, Mills is too negative and with lines like “Cricket kit used to be…” and “not for the office,please: nobody likes characters,” you are left feeling reprimanded by a headmaster and not advised by a fashion-conscious metrosexual.

Visionaire 54 SPORT- A Lacoste Tribute

By Will Reid on July 1st, 2008

visionairelacoste.jpgThe latest edition of Visionaire has been outed as a tribute to Lacoste’s 75th Anniversary. So far, the infamously expensive Visionaire collection has seen issues made of puzzles and vinyl records but we are now being treated to the ‘first wearable issue.’ Confused? Let me explain.

This issue of Visionaire, in collaboration with Lacoste, will contain three state-of-the-art “full-coverage, full-colour, photographically-printed Lacoste polo shirts featuring artwork by some of the world’s leading artists and photographers.” Basically, the magazine will come in the form of a suitcase containing twelve images and three different shirts. There will be one small, one medium and one large within each copy and there will be four different sets of the SPORT issue. Included is the artwork of Nick Knight, Karl Lagerfeld and Michael Stipe to name but a brilliant few.

The issue will be previewed during next week’s Paris Haute-Couture collections. Those with a subscription are guaranteed a copy.

Each issue costs $250 (£125.)

Emile was in Milan recently for the Valentino shoot which will be unveiled at a presentation in Paris. Emile himself will be in attendance at the presentation in the afternoon.

This isn’t Emile’s first foray into fashion, the Californian actor appeared on the cover of Another Man magazine in March looking thoroughly stylish in a paisley shirt.

US GQ- June 2008: Shia LaBeouf by Peggy Sirota

By Will Reid on May 21st, 2008

shiagq.jpgThere seems to be a formula for the young star; grey, Dior Homme-style suits, Converse-style trainers and now the latest addition; faux facial hair.

Here we have Shia LaBeouf- star of the latest Indiana Jones film. LaBeouf has come a long way since his days as the curly haired, Hawaiian shirt-wearing Louis Stevens and the cover of this month’s US GQ sees him in great trench coats, nautical-inspired knits and skinny jeans.

I do, however, object to that follicle growth appearing in his mouth region (could I have made that sound any more disgusting?!) It looks like GQ have got the make-up artist to pencil in a goatee. Ugh!

Continue reading for the rest of the shoot.

Tom Ford in Fantastic Man

By Isabelle on March 14th, 2008

Tom_fantastic_man_fordWe’ve been waiting for the latest issue of Fantastic Man with baited breath and not only does it have a beautifully footnoted interview with Tom Ford but it also features Scott Schuman (aka The Sartorialist, but you know that) and a beautifully photographed Maurice Sheltens shoot showing how to pack your clothes properly.

The designer talks about his art collection and his time in New York at the tail end of the ’70s. He also discusses the sexuality that runs through all his creative endeavours: ‘Sex is part of my image’ he says. ‘I’m extremely sensual. If I like someone I want to touch them, if I love them I want to hold onto them. I’m very physical.’
Ford compares himself to Alexander McQueen and Nicolas Ghesquière saying: ‘I am very much a designer but I am not an artist and I have never pretended to be.’

WISHLIST: Mulberry’s Brynmore and Barnaby bags

By Will Reid on January 17th, 2008

Menswear magician Stuart Vevers has pulled another trick out of the bag (no pun intended!) The Brynmore (left) is a stunning piece that combines a classic style with incredible design to make a piece that all men will be proud to BRANDISH (this is a worrying habit). The Barnaby right, is another bag from the new collection and another future classic. It is made with natural leather and has an internal pocket as well as quick release buckles. Spacious, well made and thoughtfully designed, Vevers realises what men need in a bag and allows the wearer to live without the accessory getting in the way. In an interview with GQ magazine, Vevers explained that "Mulberry bags show an appreciation of beautiful quality not ostentation," and this week’s Wishlist items are testament to that. Just don’t let the price tag stop you.

Beckham pipped to be sporting style leader

By Isabelle on March 30th, 2007

Davidbeck
US men’s fashion experts are hoping that David Beckham will inject a bit of style into the sporting world in America. "Hopefully it will inspire them to lift their game," said
Adam Rapoport, style editor at men’s fashion magazine GQ. "I
think athletes respond to competition well. If someone’s
looking better than them they want to get on par with them." Despite not yet arriving in the US Beckham has already appeared on the cover of US men’s style mag Details. Wendell Brown, senior fashion editor at Esquire, explained how US sports stars need sartorial guidance: "Desperately. And they’re in need of a tailor, I
hope Beckham has a major impact."
