Just Do It: DIY Project #1- Cartoon Trousers

By Will Reid on April 9th, 2009

cartooncropped.JPGWith a month long holiday in India coming up, I knew I had to get some stand-out holiday wear. I thought about the different eras of recreational wear and began racking the (fashion) history books for inspiration- jumpsuits, capri pants, high-waisted slacks, kaftans, tunics, dungarees…the list goes on. But then, as with all moments of fashion genius, America’s Next Top Model came on the telly and I was reminded of the genius that is Jeremy Scott.

As a result I was led to a picture of a friend wearing a pair of Jeremy’s cropped print trousers and I fell in love. In order to recreate the look, I bought a pair of Topman’s cartoon-print pyjama bottoms (£15) and tied bits of string around my lower legs. I then folded the pyjama fabric under the string to achieve a cropped effect.

Because the print is so loud, you should stick to basic items in muted colours. And even if you don’t get the look that you wanted, I assure you that making the trousers is almost as much fun as wearing the finished edition anyway.

Topman ‘Fright Night’ pyjamas as daywear?

By admin on August 12th, 2008

topman fright night pyjama bottoms.jpgLast week we featured Jeremy Scott’s tyre-print pyjama style trousers which is a great way to get into the loungewear trend.

Topman’s comic print bottoms might actually be pyjamas, and garish ones at that but they’re at a much more accessible price than the Jeremy Scott kecks, perfect for trying out something you might only wear once. The Fright Night bottoms are only £12, and they also come in a skeleton print and a snakes and ladders print.

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.

Victor Glemaud S/S 2008

By admin on May 8th, 2008

Considering Victor Glemaud’s first collection was only Spring/Summer 2007, he’s garnered a remarkable amount of attention in a very short time. It’s no coincidence that he was a publicist before he moved into the fashion world, although he also worked as a design advisor for Paco Rabanne for a year before opening his own line in July 2006.

The sleepwear influence dominates Glemaud’s S/S 08 range with pyjama-like shirts, shoes that could be mistaken for slippers, layered cardigans and colourful smart shorts. The range is also designed with hot weather in mind – you’d be surprised at how many designers don’t do this – so the materials are light and airy. Stockists are pretty hard to find at the moment, especially ones that supply to the EU. For now, you’ll have to do with this interview on Glemaud’s essential items.

*****L Bathrobe

By admin on April 28th, 2008

If Brandish were a political party our key campaigning issues would be madras shirts, short shorts and sleepwear. Consider this post a campaign for sleepwear. If long johns are a step too far for you to wear outside the house, then you might want to start on something simple. Like this *****L Bathrobe (€120).

First off we should remember the rules: don’t ever go more than 15 minutes away from your home wearing sleepwear – you will look crazy. If you think about it, a bathrobe is probably the best way to start off in this trend. It’s comfortable, versatile (hood up = criminal, hood down = fashion forward trendsetter) and you can take it off if you feel too freaked out wearing sleepwear at Tesco. You can’t say that about long johns.

Pyjamas outside of the house – good look or am I going crazy?

By admin on April 17th, 2008

pyjama.jpgYou know when you’ve become so accustomed to something that things that should look odd don’t anymore? That’s how I’m starting to feel with the pyjamas look. Wearing your pyjamas outside of the house should make you look like an extra from One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest – instead I’m thinking that it’s quite a wearable look. As long as you don’t stray too far from your house.

The reason for this change in opinion is solely because of the ‘Pyjama looks’ shoot in Fantastic Man. Whilst all the looks are great, I found the ones with high tops especially alluring. I’m even considering wearing this look to my local Tesco, just to see the reaction. Seriously. Tell me I’m not going crazy.
