Matthew Williamson launches menswear range for H&M

By admin on April 29th, 2009

Following on from the high profile launch of Matthew Williamson’s H&M range for women comes his men’s collection.

As you can tell the collection takes inspiration from Williamson’s mix of traditional Brit and colourful hedonism, with brights, seersucker (a brilliant summer fabric) and tie dye. “I have aimed to incorporate a styling juxtaposition where global inspiration is fused with quintessential English style.” said Williamson. It might be a little much to wear all together, but the seperate pieces will definitely give your summer wardrobe some pep.

Another item which is made for women but who gives fig when they look as good as this? The Liberty X Nike collab hits the Liberty store when else but this February 14th for a limited time, and when they’re gone, they’re gone.

They have a plain blue pair named Nina, and an orange pair named Phoebe, but the nicest by far are the Patchwork Dunk, a mix showcasing the best of Liberty print. If you should be lucky enough to be slight of foot head down to Liberty and snap up a pair, at £70 for the plain and £85 for the patchwork they’re fairly reasonable and will go wonderfully with the new season pastel pieces making the rounds for Spring/Summer.

Yay or Nay: The Return of THAT Print?

By Will Reid on January 19th, 2009

burberry.jpgThe Burberry Prorsum A/W 2009 show has been going down a storm on the Internet with buyers and fashion critics air-kissing in delighted agreement as they plan their wardrobes for seasons to come (guilty as charged.) Apart from the amazing padded jackets and sharp tailoring, one of the things that has most caught my attention is the subtle return of the infamous check print. The beige tartan-esque print has, in recent years, become a taboo of the fashion industry but designer Christopher Bailey appears to have decided that the time has come for a major return.

What do you think- are you ready to show-off the check print? Vote in our poll after the jump!

Alfred Shaheen, man who brought Hawaiian shirts to the masses dies aged 86

By admin on January 6th, 2009

Alfred Shaheen, the man responsible for popularising the Hawaiian shirt died on the 22nd of December.

Taking on his parents’ business after returning from WWII Shaheen built up the company turning it into a million dollar enterprise with a group of highly skilled workers dubbed Alfred Shaheen’s City of Craftsmen.

The Hawaiian shirt or ‘Aloha’ shirt became popular on the islands as dress-down formal wear but it was Shaheen, with the help of stars like Elvis Presley, who helped extend the fashion for Hawaiian shirts across the globe. Check out our gallery to trace the history of the garment.

Who did Hotel Aime snap recently? None other than Fantastic Man‘s new Deputy Editor Charlie Porter, proving he is at the absolute vanguard of fashion by wearing polka dots. Dots, spots and specks are replacing stripes as the menswear print du jour and not a minute too soon!
For a Porter-esque look get Paul Smith’s shirt (£123), it looks like polka dots but closer inspection shows they’re actually diamond shapes, which are going to be the new polka dots in a couple of years. Probably.

Jeremy Scott tyre print jogging bottoms

By admin on August 7th, 2008

jeremy scott pyjama tyre print jogging bottoms twosee.jpgPyjama style pants were a big trend on the menswear catwalks and are set to break onto the high street next summer.

Be one step ahead and snap up Jeremy Scott’s jogging bottoms at TwoSee, the tyre print is reminiscent of the ikat prints we’ve seen all over the high street and they’re reduced from £205 to £153.75. The voluminous shape dictates a pairing with a fine-knit slim tee so that you don’t look swamped. Add some white canvas pumps to give you an edgy but simple summer outfit.

WISHLIST: River Island Tokyo Tees

By Will Reid on April 11th, 2008

Inspired by Isabelle’s talk of thunderstorms and rainclouds at Shiny Towers, I decided to source some foreign-focused fashion for those rainy-day dreams of tropical (and of course warm) destinations.

These t-shirts are (just in case you didn’t notice) based on posters and leaflets around Tokyo. Fashioned from 100% cotton, these could be based on pages from manga comics or, in the case of my fave, vintage propaganda banners shouting “Japan Create!” In bright colours and bold graphics, abandon any sense of gloom and widen your outlook with images of cartoons and lasers.

River Island isn’t exactly famed for being on-trend and it doesn’t pretend to be high fashion but let’s take a lesson from DJ Karl and embrace new things- be it high street or Grand Theft Auto 4.

HBB Scary Children Tee

By admin on February 28th, 2008

Everyone knows children are scary right? Their long gangly legs and arms? Freaky. That hungry look they give when they’re waiting for the swings to become free? Unsettling!
I’m just kidding, I love the little bastards, but I also love this T-shirt by HBB from Your Eyes Lie. Nothing says ‘husband material’ like a man with hundreds of half-starved children all over his top.  It’s only ten pounds and would look great with everything. Everything I tell thee!
I like the way they’ve made use of the print so it becomes more like a pattern. We’ve seen a lot of that lately. It gives you a lot more flexibility with necklines and jackets and the like as you don’t have to worry about where the print will sit, you can just have these creepy little faces peering over the top of your boat neck jumper. Brill.

Ted Baker shirt at Sarah Coggles

By ShinyMedia on May 16th, 2007

Tedbaker

Sarah Coggles is a great store I’ve had the fortune to visit on family trips to York. It’s a wonder to go through their menswear which is more interesting than your average boutique. I like this Ted Baker shirt (£75) in a nice aqua-green; the pattern is retro without being kookily so and it nicely combines flowers with geometry. Use it to give a grey suit some personality, or wear with navy cords and Clarks shoes for a truly retro look.
