RAF SIMONS AW11 FITTING from RAFSIMONS.COM on Vimeo. Raf Simons shows off his Fall/Winter 2011 collection through this rather interesting video. The behind the scenes video of a fitting, sees models rotate in a 360 fashion, showing you every detail of each piece. Although I am not feeling those awful PVC looking trousers, the collection does have some great pieces, …
Clean, clean, clean. The Jil Sander show featured neat boys with bowl cuts in pale summer colours and dark, sharp suits.
Shoulders are wide, fabrics are sheer and there is only the merest hint of print in a few drawn-on pieces. Raf Simons focused on details, but they were never bitty, things like pockets visible through shirts, short shorts and racer back singlets all added definition to this simple collection.
Farfetch, the website that brings together the best from designer boutiques around Europe, is having a private sale. Admittedly there isn’t much for a credit crunch budget, but there are plenty of quality investment pieces with up to a 40% discount.
For the British, summer is a time of seaside, (dubious) sun and 99p ice creams. It can be hard to find the perfect sun ‘n’ sea outfit and I won’t bore you with details of the economy but, basically, we should all be investing in classic investment fashion pieces.

Another day, another Raf Simons collaboration, this time with Doc Martens. We can’t wait till this one hits the stores, the metallic tones work so well with the hardwearing DM leather and I’m sure they’ll look even better with wear.

Part one of our Paris Menswear show round up, and both Hermés and Raf Simons wowed but for different reasons, check after the jump to see a short clip of the Raf Simons vid complete with rotating mirrors and you’ll see why the fash pack went mad for this one.

Raf Simons is back once again with mod father Fred Perry to bring their SS09 collab. Moving away from the monotone of previous seasons these power houses of style are moving into the exciting unknown with a vibrant colour palette taking it’s inspiration from West African culture.

Raf Simons‘ AW colab with Eastpak is one of his most conventional yet but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing worth buying.
I’m currently sitting in a small room in India with a fan spinning in an attempt to cool me down and a mosquito net blanketing the balcony door. I have to admit it’s pretty hard to imagine wearing trench coats right now. But, I’m a proud Brit and nothing is going to get in the way of my winter-wardrobe appreciation.
It’s a simple look but Jaakko’s tonal outfit posted on Hel Looks a few days ago hits the fashion spot. Breaking up the monotony with a patterned scarf is a wise move and he shows that black and brown can be worn together (more about this soon) without incurring the wrath of the fashion gods.
Oops- I genuinely only just realised that the title of this post could be interpreted pretty freely. Anyway, let’s all just grow up and listen to the explanation.
As you can probably tell comments are down on Brandish, so when Nick emailed me asking about grey skinny jeans I clapped my hands together in excitement… A clothing hunt!
I went looking all over the internet for some grey skinny jeans with reasonable success. Hopefully there’s something here for you Nick and if anyone else wants me to don my web-hunting gear or just have a chat about clothes send me an email to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com.
I can’t seem to go a day without mentioning Kanye West lately, but this complex post is an interesting one on his various collaborations and the likeliness of them ever appearing in stores. Let us know which one you think will be out first in the poll after the jump.
With Stan Smiths and Rod Lavers firmly in staple territory you can’t blame Adidas for re-releasing the Aditennis Hi (£41-50). Whilst they’re unlikely to become staples, they look great – benefitting from more than a slight resemblance to Raf Simons high tops.
Hot on the heals of the Comme Des Garçons collaboration, Fred Perry are now pairing up with Jil Sander head honcho and King of sub-cultural style, Raf Simons
