You Would If You Could… Bright Suits

By Will Reid on February 27th, 2008

Markronson2_2There are endless trends and endless items you can wear to copy them. However, some looks are just out there to be seen.

You know what I’m talking about- the type of outfit that you might be let off wearing if the road was a catwalk and we were extras from Madonna’s ‘Vogue,’ throwing shapes at helpless passers-by.  This post is out there to give those looks an airing (we might just tone it down a bit!)

Brits 2008 Fashion: Arctic Monkeys

By Will Reid on February 25th, 2008

The men either went for smart-casual monochrome (Take That) with accessories such as elaborate ties and glittery belts or glorious brights (look out for my other post on Mark Ronson and Mika.) But one group of well-dressed individuals stood out.

The Arctic Monkeys proved to be the attention-grabbing act of the night, whether it included their drunken thank-you speech (or slur,) winning the Best Group of the Year or their spectacular look. The band went for country costumes with full-on tweed and breeches. Admittedly you couldn’t wear it all the time but you have to admit that they do look rather enviously carefree and offensively upper class to the point of clay-pigeon cool.  This year’s Brits were a fabulous reminder of why  the world loves the UK. Some may have found the awards to be an alcohol-fuelled waste of time but at least we saw some genuine smiles and bright-eyes (more standard surprise than surgeon’s snip.) Deep breath- and onto the Oscars.
