n684944737_1400897_1301033.jpg

At a disco the other night, the theme was ‘City vs. Country’ and stuck for ideas, a friend and I decided to go as tacky tourists. Cue vintage novelty braces, high-waisted denim shorts and charity shop shirts.

My charity shop bum-bag has been the focus of much attention.

Lastnightsparty.com
is ex musician turned socialite photographer Merlin Bronques photo-blog documenting New York’s hottest parties and people. His victims are always well dressed, usually drunk and sometimes topless and as a result the collection of photos provide a snap shot of fashion in motion… whatever that means. The images are far more accessible than that of fashion photography and give insight into the trends currently being peddled across the pond in NYC- a far more useful tool than any forecast.

Nicola Formichetti, the fashion extraordinaire and creative director of Dazed & Confused, writes an awesome blog which he manages to update almost three times a week. With pictures from his various trips, nights out, karaoke parties and Tokyo fashion-fests, the blog is a treasure trove of great images and this is no different. The pic was only put up yesterday morning and it shows some of Nicola’s friends posing on a night out in London.

Men.Style- ‘The Ultimate Party Guide’ by The Upgrader

brandish.jpg

Men.Style is great for tongue-in-cheek features and their
is not only perfectly-timed but a great read and (just to add some sense of validity to this post,) a good laugh. The feature aims to make you “a legendary host” and the site has got a few of America’s most refined movers ‘n’ shakers on-board to add their two pence to the Christmas-party-nightmare cup.

If you are planning to throw a party and you really hope it lives up to the obviously high-expectations of those who actually enjoy Christmas (which I hope is all Brandish readers!) then you have to read the full run-down of the guide after the jump!

It was seemingly awkward stares all round at the US GQ Men of the Year party in LA recently. Russell Brand sported the faraway be-sunglassed look of someone who has just been scorned and check out Adam Brody‘s weird fake smile.

Love The Look: Mark Ronson at Vivienne Westwood

Mark Ronson has always been a tiptop fashion star and this year has been awash with his sartorial influence. From the stripes and Mod look of early 2008 to the sharp tailoring in kooky fabrics. From the 50s rock-star (read: Elvis) to the fur-clad aristo-geek.

Now, Ronson is taking it upon himself to lead the way with the trapper-hat wearer, ‘Lightspeed Champion,’ look as first established by our (soon to depart-) Jason Dike.

WISHLIST: A Closet Session with à la Fake Karl

anna wintour and karl lagerfeld.jpg

Now this looks like my kind of party!

I feel like a horrible, disgusting sorry excuse for a fashion follower. Why am I bound by such emotional wounds? Why do I feel so sick-minded and wrong?

Answer: I want an invitation to Fake Karl’s closet. Yes, it’s true! I, Will Reid, couldn’t think of anything this week that could be desired more than a day of hanging upside down with Anna and Karl sipping our “respective drinks.”

PPQ hosted a moving out party last night at their Conduit Street headquarters which was attended by Jaime Winstone, Ben Grimes and Peaches Geldof. Designers Amy Molyneaux and Percy Parker themed the event as a “trash the carpet” party which was bound to encourage some rambunctiousness.

I’m Still Not Convinced- The Short Suit

shortsuit.jpg

A while ago, we remarked on how a Telegraph feature on the short suit had used rather unusual models to create an unflattering portrayal of the look.

However, this picture (taken at the launch of Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme in Milan,) shows that even the fashionistos of the industry can’t get it right. While also not the most model-ly of men, Bruce Pask of the New York Times would be one of those I thought could pull of this challenging look.
