Head to toe: a simple look to beat the monsoon showers

By cchapman on July 17th, 2009

deluge_pick.jpgWhen the weather is muggy and you face regular drenchings, the only thing to wear are items that keep you cool and don’t get ruined in the rain. A checked shirt in gorgeous Madras colours keeps the flag flying for summer, with long sleeves for those cooler moments. Pair with rugby shorts – yes really! This is a genuine trend I’ve spotted on the streets of East London recently and need only be worn with caution if you live anywhere near the hooray-Henry zones of SW London. The shape is actually classic and, when not worn with sportswear, can look surprisingly stylish.

Nike Air Max 1 OG Re-Re-Re-Release

By Jonathan Smith on May 21st, 2009

Right kids it’s time to lower the tone with some sneaker news: the universally beloved Air Max 1 OG is back for another innings at Overkill. The Air Max 1 was first released in this original colourway back in 1987 and has periodically been re-released to rapturous hype every time. The AM1 OG has since gone down as one of the most loved colourways of one of the most loved trainer of all time making a real, but accessible collectors item.

This time the Max is slated for release the end of June just as the summer should really be kicking in so why not team a pair with some skinny faded Cheap Mondays from Urban Outfitters and a colourful SS-Tee from American Apparel. Sorted.

Love the Look: Coral shirt and navy shorts

Bit of a controversial choice this I’m sure, but for me this chap has got style in buckets. Coral was such a hit for women last year and the year before I hope it’s as big in menswear this year. It looks great with my other favourite colour, grey and is a surefire winner with all the washed out pastels we’re seeing at the moment.

Back to our Nipponese gentleman, his pairing of the shirt with a navy pair of shorts reveals his expert fashion nous and it’s set off wonderfully by his gold plaited belt. Now clock last years’ one hit wonder, the Wayfarer style sunnies and tell me he’s not your new style icon?

Love The Look: Toby Jones/ Truman Capote in ‘Infamous’

By Will Reid on January 5th, 2009

capote.jpgDuring the Christmas season, I was lovingly entrusted with a vintage copy of Truman Capote’s ‘In Cold Blood.’ The book has definitely lived up to its reputation and the two films that have been made about the creation of the book (‘Capote’ starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and ‘Infamous’ with Toby Jones) offer not only a great plot but awesome fashion.

To achieve the look, buy simple jumpers in bright colours and wear them with trenches and blazers in base colours such as khaki, black and brown. Add either jeans or cords (if you want to edge towards a more formal look,) and bold accessories. Over-sized tortoiseshell sunglasses, fedoras, three watches at a time. Why not go all-out?

Outfit Pick: NYE Sophisticated Style

By Will Reid on December 29th, 2008

nyeparty.jpgAs we endure the last week of 2008 and look back upon a year of fashion extremes, we still have the sartorial challenge of New Year’s Eve (NYE) ahead of us. While many opt for a loud, proud and (often) garish get-up, I am aiming to attempt a subtle luxury with the help of muted colours but opulent fabrics (velvet, silk, corduroy etc.)

The black cords above are a great base and, with a white shirt and the dove grey waistcoat pictured, they are easy to pull-off. The bow tie and vintage cuff-links are fun and appropriately over-the-top while the royal blue loafers are expensive but a great talking point.

Have fun, look great and, if you wake up the next morning to find your D&G loafers drowning in the contents of a red wine bottle, at least you know that you’re part of the ‘Walk of Shame Chic’ trend de jour!

Will’s Christmas Outfit Picks: Topman ‘Exclamation Mark Print’ Polo

By Will Reid on December 17th, 2008

Note to Editor: Can we feature pieces we bought just yesterday?

Now that I’ve cleared that up, I can proceed with this Christmas Outfit Pick. This polo is a great find and the loud print is definitely eye-catching. I found it in Topman yesterday afternoon and it was reduced to £10 from £16. In the image, the polo looks black but it is actually blue and the print looks slightly bigger (as opposed to the foot-print looking print pictured!)

I styled it with blue skinny jeans from Topman, two-tone trainers from Gargyle.com and a cable-knit beanie from Old Navy. If you want us to feature an outfit you have designed around a high-street item (from any country,) send it to isabelle@shinymedia.com.

Outfit Pick: Braving the Blue with Burberry!

By Will Reid on October 10th, 2008

I’m currently sitting in a small room in India with a fan spinning in an attempt to cool me down and a mosquito net blanketing the balcony door. I have to admit it’s pretty hard to imagine wearing trench coats right now. But, I’m a proud Brit and nothing is going to get in the way of my winter-wardrobe appreciation.

This Outfit Pick shows you how to rock a modern, edgy winter look that will have you feeling protected and warm but not boring and hoping no-one spots you in your M&S beanie.

The trench adds a sharp shot of buzzing colour and the t-shirt and boots add an urban gypsy vibe that’s very on-trend. The umbrella…well, that’s just for fun.

Outfit Pick: Trapper Hat Hot

By Will Reid on October 3rd, 2008

outfitpick4.jpgI have to admit that despite being a lover of high-fashion millinery from the likes of Stephen Jones and Philip Treacy, I just can’t wear hats. They look truly horrific on me.

But the whole Brandish team is currently infatuated with an item that looks set to take off in the coming months (of snow and cold.) That item is the Trapper Hat.

In this week’s Outfit Pick, I’ve added a few eccentric pieces to a Topman Trapper hat and created a look that anyone could pull of by balancing the quirky tweed bag and dancing brogues with a classic beige trench also from Topman.

Are items you want to see included in a Brandish Outfit Pick? E-mail: isabelle@shinymedia.com!
