Iggy- That’s Not What We Meant By The New ‘It’ Shoe!

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.

But when Brandish’s own Isabelle reported on the menswear trend of ‘Medges,’ (men’s footwear with a Wedge heel,) no-one was expecting the trend to filter down to Crocs.

As good old Oscar Wilde once mused, “fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months.” Well, there’s no time like the present!

Calvin Klein announces menswear move to New York

calvin klein new york fashion week milan menswear.jpgCalvin Klein have decided to move their menswear catwalk collection to New York this season instead of Milan. The company will still present their collection to retailers in Milan this coming January but the show itself will take place on the ground floor of the company’s headquarters.

“As this is the year we have brought the Collection business back in house and will celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary, we thought this was an appropriate time to change things up a bit,” said Tom Murry, President & COO, Calvin Klein, Inc. He went on to add: “We see this as a great opportunity to support our U.S. business and retail partners and acknowledge our heritage in New York City.”

The move isn’t permanent but could be a sign that designers are getting a little concerned about retailers’ spending during the economic downturn.

Wedges for men at Fendi’s Milan Fashion Week show

By admin on June 27th, 2008

man wedge medge fendi milan menswear.jpgI spend an inordinate amount of time spying the soles of men’s shoes to see if they have hidden lifts in the sole but bearing in mind there aren’t many Karl Lagerfelds in Tooting I’m usually forced to conjure them up using the powers of my overactive imagination.

Now that Fendi have debuted the wedge on the Milan catwalks the delicate isssue of heel height might come out into the open.

All we need to do now is come up with a patronising name for them, somehow combining the word man with the word wedge. Medge it is then.

Philip Start’s Fashion diary part two

By ShinyMedia on January 24th, 2008

PhilipstartIn his second diary update Philip Start spent yesterday at the Milan Menswear shows and sent us an update:

After an exhausting few days Jil Sander was the only show Philip had time to go to and he liked what he saw: ‘there was a very nice classic element, I spotted a great aubergine suit and there were some fabulous premium leather pieces. I didn’t personally like the fashion element and there were a lot of printed fabrics which weren’t to my taste. They would have looked great mixed up with casualwear but our customer is a bit more classic than that.’ See after the jump for images from the show, or check out our pick of the blogs for Style Salvage’s review.
