When Stoke City signed Bojan in the summer, the footballing world acknowledged Mark Hughes and his coaching staff had a tough task getting the best out of the Spaniard. The former Barcelona forward had failed to fulfil potential so far in his career but Bojan has flourished on late in the Premier League. However as the Stoke Sentinel today reports, …
QPR’s long running issues with midfielder Adel Taarabt could be coming to an end in January. That is according to TalkSport who think Serie A club Atalanta want Taarabt. 25-year-old Adel Taarabt spectacularly fell out with manager Harry Redknapp who accused him of being a few stone overweight. Taarabt then went to a national newspaper taking his top off to …
Fernando Torres is set to remain a A.C. Milan player despite speculation insisting that the striker is set to re-join the Premier League. Torres joined Milan in the summer on a two-year loan move from Chelsea after struggling to emulate his form at Liverpool and Atletico Madrid. The £50m striker has only managed 1 goal in 10 matches for the Rossoneri …
Harry Redknapp has told Sky Sports that the row between himself and maverick winger Adel Taarabt could be over this weekend as he is in contention to play against Chelsea. The 25-year-old had previously been accused of being “three stone overweight” by the QPR boss. Adel Taarabt began his career in France with Lens and then in 2007 Tottenham Hotspur signed …
With rumours that Milan’s Stephan El Shaarawy could be heading for a new club Silvio Berlusconi (sure I have heard that name before) has said that the player won’t go cheaply. Berlusconi is saying that the player should have a price tag of 35 million Euros, a fee that first emerged in Tuttosport and has reverberating around the Italian press …
As one door closes…Just as it seems that Arsenal are about to lose out to Juventus on two of its main transfer targets comes news that the club may have some exciting new options. The big one is of course AC Milan’s 20 year old striker Stephan El Shaarawy. The Indie reports that the Milan club’s vice-president Adriano Galliani has …
It seems in fashion we always want to be at the next destination, now. So it is that we haven’t even hit August yet and some of us are already thinking ahead to what to wear in the fall. Of course, the fact that collections are shown out of sync with actual seasons doesn’t help. An extreme example I’m faced with is wanting ALL of the McQueen shoe collection from S/S10 right now.
Selectism.com have been giving sneak previews of the McQueen S/S10 shoe collection, those paint splattered lovelies, which will apparently also be available as trainers. Picking up on the folk-art patchwork and paint splattering seen in his recent film-presentation-as-show in Milan, the trainers seen here feature both of these themes as gorgeous detailing. Patience is, I guess, a virtue but in the wicked world of fashion it is sorely tested.
Working within the confines of the grey suit Miuccia Prada played around with masculine conventions. Slashed shorts and sleeves nodded to a violent outburst against formalwear. Shoulders are very much the focus, even without jackets they were shown off in tank tops and sleeveless cardigans. Textured tops and greyscale prints conveyed the feel of newsprint.
A retro silhouette dominated the Missoni collection, it was all cuffed trousers and shirts teamed with trenches and faded denims.
Patchwork knits and David Byrne-esque tailoring carried on the throwback theme. Hints of safariwear came through in the muted palette of washed-out neutrals hinted and sherbet accents provided a delicate burst of colour.
Best worn: while being a foreign correspondent in the Sahara.

The standout show at Pitti Uomo was, in my mind, Alexander McQueen’s “The McQueensberry Rules”. Where most Milan designers literally translated the gloom of the economic crisis McQueen added a murderous glint to the proceedings with aristocratic eleagance and a glossy nostalgia for a pre-Thatcherite Britain.
An epic fashion row has erupted over a pair of quilted silk trousers seen on both the D&G and Armani catwalks at the Milan menswear shows.
Armani started it all by saying: “Now they copy, later they will learn.”
Givenchy chose to give a presentation of their clothes at Pitti Uomo in Milan yesterday, take a look at the video to see the clothes, which consisted largely of avant-garde style traditional menswear. The collection gave off slightly post-apocalyptic vibes with fur coats and military tailoring.
David Beckham’s possible January loan to AC Milan is big news in football but all I can think about is whether he’ll start dressing more like an Italian… hey, even James Bond, the quintessential English gent wears Brioni.
Iggy Pop has, in previous seasons, been declared by designers as high-fashion inspiration. And for many valid reasons; he rocked skinny leather trousers long before Kate Moss, meddled with blood long before Angelina Jolie and played the effeminate rocker with crazy hair long before Russell Brand.
