Something to liven up your Monday lunchtime, Oki-Ni are stocking jewellery and accessories by the Belgian designer Martin Margiela. You’ll have to be quick as some great pieces like the silver hospital bracelet and nail ring have already sold out.

Working with Jerome Coste‘s Les Ateliers Ruby they have also come up with a range of biker accessories. We love the silk scarf, it’s a perfect summer purchase for guarding against sore throats on long flights, and features the Maison’s signature white on white brushstroke effect. If you’re a biker then you wont be able to resist the helmet, featuring signatures from the whole MMM team. See after the jump for product details.

Top Five: Will’s Summer Wants!

By Will Reid on March 26th, 2009

Last summer I was down at Shiny Towers and the gloriously hot days were spent writing, chatting with my fellow Shinies, trying on Drop-Crotch jeans and touring the streets in search of aspirational street style. But despite all the joviality I didn’t quite anticipate the weather (although I refuse to take the blame for that one- when was the last time we had a proper summer?) and ended up the innocent victim of SSS (that’s Skinny jeans in Summer Syndrome.) This summer I am determined to get it right, which is why I have compiled this list of fashion needs (okay, wants.)

Since Christmas and a happy accident haircut, I have been living with a bit of an 80s asymmetrical style. My super-thick hair means that I have to use extra-hold products which are effective but grease-free; the wet fro is never a good look! I will need lots of hairspray to combat the heat.

Make like a daffodil: Margiela in yellow

By Colin Chapman on March 13th, 2009

yellow_Margiela.jpg
Spring has definitely sprung – at least for now. Before we’re plunged back into another ice age, consider freshening up your Spring wardrobe with some lemony options. OkiNi have added new options to their Margiela range in some surprising colourways that lift the classic pieces out of their minimal roots.

Those very lovely Margiela hi-tops I posted about a while back are now available in a very daffodil yellow. Just as lovely as the off-white this deep yellow would look great with indigo denim.

Also eye-catching are the lemon-toned jeans in an ‘aged patina’ and this yellow graphic print T-shirt which shouts “Bring me sunshine!”

Probably unwise to wear more than one piece at once in case people think you’re founding a new religion but individually, great accents to lift an outfit.

Sneak Peek- Oki-ni Site Renovation Happening TODAY!

By Will Reid on March 3rd, 2009

okini.jpgThe Fashionisto has reported that Oki-ni is redesigning their website today and he has a quote from Pete Hellyer, Oki-ni Design Manager.

“While the products and mix has been constantly evolving the site has remained pretty much the same. 18 months on from the re-launch, what worked then…now doesn’t. We felt that it was time for a change, an evolution that puts the site on par with the products. And we hope that you agree.”

Prepare yourself for brilliant new labels, a blog, fashion archives and designer profiles. All exciting stuff, for sure!

Dream rubber: Margiela’s trainers-to-die-for

By Colin Chapman on February 6th, 2009

Margiela_trainers.jpg
If, like me, your winter footwear has taken a battering given the recent weather conditions you may well be looking ahead to your next shoe purchase. Those winter boots that started off as a treat for chilled feet may be looking a bit soggy – time for the new. Clearly it’s too soon to be considering proper summer footwear (take note damp plimsoll wearers) so some warmth and practicality is still needed. The new batch of Margiela trainers at OkNi are the stuff of dreams. I particularly like the hi-tops with their all-white, 60s Cardin-esque space-ageness (a bit 80s Travel Fox too).

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

By Will Reid on October 9th, 2008

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.)

Brandish Poll: Executive Item Execution

By Will Reid on August 21st, 2008

EIE.jpgForgive that awful title but let me explain; Executive Item Execution (EIE) is the official ruin of an ever-so-stylish item as the result of a figure of authority telling you they have the same piece (and no, this has nothing to do with the fetish trend.)

To paraphrase and avoid any further confusion, I will put it into the context of my own life. Yesterday, a figure of authority commented on how “insane” my shoes were.This person went on to reveal that they actually had and often wore my shoes and broke into hysterical laughter as I stuttered and muttered a response that attempted to convey my anguish.

Call me vain, on a high-horse or simply unrealistic but how many names have been ruined for you by the child who used to pick their nose and eat it or mutter to themselves as they drew pictures of dead people? Sadly, the same applies to Margiela as it did to McDonalds (thanks, Morgan Spurlock.)

Feel the same? Vote in our poll below.

Trousers trends multiply, so take your pick!

S/S trends from left: Martin Margiela, Alexander McQueen, Prada, Burberry Prorsum.

Trouser styles have been skinny for a long time, but mirroring womenswear trends the fashion-forward kecks seen on a trendy young man could just as easily be voluminous double-pleated, geek chic cropped, wide-leg, bootcut or dropped-crotch.

In a recent article in GQ style Charlie Porter waxes lyrical about the return of bootcut featured in Prada’s S/S show in a Italo-geek style. I don’t know if I’m ready for bootcut yet, but it took me a while to acclimatise to the return of pleats when Fantastic Man did a feature on them about a year ago. See after the jump to take our trouser trends poll.

Trends: Watch & Wear- A Daily Dose of Dalí

By Will Reid on March 10th, 2008

00100m_2From Dalí’s lobster phones and melting clock faces to Damien Hirst’s butterfly works- Surrealism is something that we can’t seem to get out of our systems. We buy into the singers who prance around in vintage band uniforms (Gwen) and the art but something we rarely show an interest in is surrealist fashion.

The reason? It’s just too embarrassing to pop down to Tesco’s with a pair of devil horns protruding from your well-styled scalp. Well not anymore. This post will allow you to test the look without looking visually-testing and trust me when I tell you that it is easier than you think.  See after the jump for more information on where this look began and (wearable) items you can put on your shopping list to mimic it.

Martin Margiela ’80s jacket

By ShinyMedia on May 15th, 2007

MmjacketSporty is coming back, I know that for menswear it never really went away, but it’s less about saggy trackie bottoms, and more about futuristic chic. Mix textures with wet-look anorak style fabrics and cotton jersey. This Martin Margiela jacket from Browns (£695) is quite retro with it’s shell suit style patchwork but the slim cut keeps it looking modern. Wear it with faded black denim jeans and white canvas pumps for a Jacques Lu Cont-alike ’80s look.

Martin Margiela watchstrap bracelet

By Isabelle on April 10th, 2007

Mmbracelet
It’s a lot of money to pay for a joke, but this watchstrap bracelet from Browns is pure Martin Margiela po-faced humour with it’s face-less watch bezel. The mysterious designer has never been photographed in public so I can’t help but think of his face every time I see this bracelet. The bracelet will set you back £155, and I think it would be a little ridiculous to wear but I’ve fallen in love with the concept. How’s about £2.50 for the concept Martin?
