Return of…the WISHLIST! Unisex Circle Scarf from American Apparel

By Will Reid on January 13th, 2009

RSA0503_01.jpgPost-Christmas and the inevitable unwrapping, posing and dressing that occurs as a direct result, I find myself on the hunt for new purchases to slyly absorb into my wardrobe (NYE Resolution: hide fewer credit card bills!)

I have decided to bring back an old Brandish feature- the ‘Wishlist.’ I begin with the ‘Unisex Circle Scarf’ from American Apparel. The scarf can be worn a mesmerising 12 ways for girls (as shown in a diagram on the label’s website,) but I think us boys could get just as much fun out of this great winter accessory.

The scarf costs £21 on-line and comes in 11 colours. A more affordable Wishlist so far!

As the lovely chap in our Yay or Nay heels debate demonstrated there is a burgeoning trend for men to co-opt traditionally female fashion status markers like heels and bags.
Pauric Sweeney’s bag is no half-measure, it’s pure luxury with a combination of python and leather and discreet hardware. It’s such an intricate bag I’m not entirely sure I could see many men going for it, I wouldn’t mind it myself I just need to find a boyfriend who can afford the £1,480 price tag so I can steal it off him!

WISHLIST: Pauric Sweeney Bag

By Will Reid on April 22nd, 2008

browns.jpgSo I am back from a rather long and horribly intense camping trip and I’ve decided that maybe I need to be a bit less full-on when it comes to fashion. How much longer can we go on with these studs and chunks of waxed crocodile leather? To be honest I am worryingly attracted to Jason’s idea of living in pyjamas for a while.

However, when items like Pauric Sweeney’s gem-coloured bags turn up on Brown’s with white piping and “bronze perforated pockets” I am reminded of why I love fashion. Okay, at £800 this love may seem slightly conditional but who was it that said beauty is pain? Whoever it was they must have had a great wardrobe. This season has seen the reinvention of classic items and whether it be the Chanel 2.55 for the girls or the Chelsea boot for men, get on board this embellished bandwagon.
