Milan Prada Men’s SS10 Catwalk Show

admin Designer Spotlight, Gallery Leave a Comment

Working within the confines of the grey suit Miuccia Prada played around with masculine conventions. Slashed shorts and sleeves nodded to a violent outburst against formalwear. Shoulders are very much the focus, even without jackets they were shown off in tank tops and sleeveless cardigans. Textured tops and greyscale prints conveyed the feel of newsprint.

Nickque Patterson is setting the London fashion world alight- slowly but surely. As a stylist, DJ, designer and all-round fashionisto persona, Nickque is one of those people for whom every street is a real-life catwalk. Whether in front of the camera as a model or working behind the scenes orchestrating an edgy editorial, Patterson knows the trends and makes fashion happen.

Ever so fortunately, he was excited to be interviewed for Brandish and after the jump we have his full interview. Prepare for shoes described as ‘elite,’ Nickque’s self-decided role as the “Jesus of Fashion” and grooming-secrets (just check out the hair!)

We love him!

Will Reid Clothing, Designer Spotlight, Trends Leave a Comment

Since I started on Brandish just over a year ago, I have repeatedly examined how trends begin in womenswear and eventually make the leap to menswear some few seasons later. Well now the Ombré trend worked by womenswear designers such as Jonathan Saunders and Prada almost three seasons ago has been dished out in rather glorious spades by designer Robert Geller.

This week’s ‘Love The Look’ sees Joshua Jackson, and boyfriend of Diane Kruger, looking incredibly dapper in a Hollywood screen-star suit. I’m guessing that, by the waistcoat, details and fact that just about every Hollywood man at the moment is hooked, that the suit is by Tom Ford but who care’s about a lack of originality when you’ve made this much effort!

While most men opt for the safe bet of ties, socks and other traditional Father’s Day gifts, I have always wanted to get something better. I spend weeks and months searching for something perfect in its masculine luxury, but when your dad works for Tesco’s your options are sadly limited. As a result, I often end up presentless and apologetic by the Third Sunday of June (like today, for instance.)

I was a fan of Isabelle’s ‘Caviar’ ties but only this afternoon (how horrendously cruel is that?) found these Prada Lifestlye sets.

thewire.jpg

If I were to play a word association game with things from The Wire, the last thing I’d associate with it is high fashion. So I was more than a little surprised to see Jamie Hector and Felicia Pearson – who play Marlo and Snoop – in this weekend’s Guardian sporting Prada and Paul Boateng. On the plus side, it did give me an excuse to pimp the show -which is the greatest TV show ever – to anyone within earshot. A bit like how I’m pimping it now.

Trouser styles have been skinny for a long time, but mirroring womenswear trends the fashion-forward kecks seen on a trendy young man could just as easily be voluminous double-pleated, geek chic cropped, wide-leg, bootcut or dropped-crotch.

Prada turban at Vogue Hommes

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

The latest fashion shoot for Vogue Hommes International featured the ubiquitous Prada turban that everybody’s been trying out. Carine Roitfeld (love that woman) seems to have lucked out as the turban looks the best I’ve seen in her her shoot. I don’t expect legions of men to rush out, grappling with shower caps and granny plastic rain hoods in a …
