The Kris Van Assche show was bound to attract some of the fash-pack’s best-dressing men and with the help of The Sartorialist, we need not fly to Paris to savour the front-row fashion savoir-faire.
Just in case you weren’t sure it existed, here’s a sneak peek at Kanye West’s upcoming Pastelle line. West wore this hoody to Dior Homme’s Paris show and it’s called ‘The Warrior’, due to its design being inspired by a suit of Armour. The warrior is made from several materials, including leather, felt & mesh, so we can assume Pastelle will be a mid to high end brand. With most assuming that Pastelle would get pushed back, it’s nice to see a little piece of it appear.
This new feature highlights the looks we love. Whether it be charity-shop mannequins or fashion week-shots, we will tell you which outfits are rocking our fashion-obsessed worlds. The first of post of this feature looks at Richard Chai’s collection and the one look that I would literally kill for. (Okay, maybe not kill but beat up that glossy male model for sure.)
For those of you who haven’t watched Amy Winehouse’s performance at Nelson Mandela’s 90th Birthday, she does this thing where she pulls on her skirt while she sings. She looks to me a victim of ‘Summer Spirit.’
You know what I mean- when all you want to wear are your swimshorts and the thought of a buttoned up shirt and trousers makes you itch. Don’t worry Amy, I have found the answer to this shared problem and it comes in the form of Dries Van Noten’s transparent shirt.
The latest edition of Visionaire has been outed as a tribute to Lacoste’s 75th Anniversary. So far, the infamously expensive Visionaire collection has seen issues made of puzzles and vinyl records but we are now being treated to the ‘first wearable issue.’ Confused? Let me explain.

Someone at Attachment watched Oliver Twist
over the holidays. Either that or they got a Russell Brand DVD. Either of those
excuses would explain their decidedly Edwardian (Or is it Victorian? I’m no
historian) theme at their A/W show in Paris.
Miharayasuhiro have been branching out,
teaming up with Puma for a successful trainer collection. Their S/S collection
was a success, showcasing wearable pieces that are more about fit than
extravagant details. The A/W collection looks to be a continuation of that
Comme Des Garcons love plaid. That’s the
main lesson that can be learned from their Paris show. Other designers have put
in a couple of plaid pieces but Comme Des Garcons practically put it into every
piece they had on show. They would have hired Mel Gibson to come down and
reprise his role in Braveheart whilst wearing head to toe Comme Des Garcons
plaid if they could afford him. Or if Mel Gibson wasn’t an alcoholic anti-semitic.

While we’ve sang the praises of Dres Van
Noten’s suits on this site for a while now, we’ve never really liked the rest
of their menswear range. The aim for Van Noten was to make a menswear range as
appealing as their suits. Could they pull this off?
