The Sartorialist – not a fan of all black outfits

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

scott_schuman.jpgNext week might just be London’s most fashionable week as everyone (me included) does themselves up in hopes of The Sartorialist taking a picture of them. If you want to get Sarted, then you should probably take note of what he likes and doesn’t like.

In this Refinery29 interview Scott Schuman states that he likes ” [being surprised] by a new color and pattern, people really putting some new design sensibility into it, not just all black. I’m really tired of all black. I’m always most happy to see something that is completely unexpected”.

With this said, The Sartorialist has featured a large number of outfits with black in them lately, so maybe he’s changed his mind. Still, I wouldn’t take my chances.

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.

This week, we’ve got men’s style covered from
head to toe… and, apparently, inside-out too. Paris has thrown up everything
from the sublime Ute Ploier’s ribcage-scarf (pictured, left) to Prada’s… interesting F/W
collection, featuring crop-tops and frilled miniskirts over shiny
. Has the
androgynous trend really crossed the gender divide?

Slick suits reign supreme on the catwalks, but for the modern urbanite, A Suitable Wardrobe looks for more suitable solutions for smart
travel wear

Refinery29 puts a Spring in their step with a roundup of
next season’s coolest new footwear, while Men’s Flair
belts up for a review of their favourite smart basic accessories.

But if the holiday
season has left you out of pocket, look to your own cupboard: Style Salvage has been doing some salvaging of his own in his wardrobe, and unearthed some
treasures. Dig deep!

Off the Cuff and Iluwfashion encourages men to ‘watch’ the trends this year with some great watch suggestions.   
A Suitable Wardrobe reflects Fred Astaire shiny chic. Who said patent leather oxfords and button down cardigans were passé? Whether updating those black jazz shoes with Refinery29′s suggested and-I’s lounge wear or a traditional country club cardigan, formal footwear deserves a place in every man’s closet.   
For those gearcravers who still are not convinced of the versatility of the cardigan, how about a Burton Mark XIII Fortress jacket?  Completely waterproof and insulated, it’s perfect for singing in the rain.
Manolo for the Men takes a look at the oddball style in the new Tom Hanks film Charlie Wilson’s War.

Relieve the post-Christmas boredom in a more constructive manner than hourly updating your Facebook status, Brandish has the pick of the blogs:
Style Salvage has got the sales covered, from b Store to H&M they’ve got the best tips for getting a bargain. Should you find yourself in Vancouver Demicouture have some great sale tips.
If that wasn’t enough encouragement to go out shopping share Carrying Contraption’s pain at missing out on a sale bargain.
I’m loving the grey and green combo on A Suitable Wardrobe, definitely something to try in the new year. Grey flannel has never looked so fresh and opstimistic.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Finland is UFF, that’s why those Finns look so damn stylish. Don’t believe me? Check out Pour Homme’s Pakek.
Present-wise, if you weren’t so lucky this year Refinery29 have got a rundown of their top 20 albums of 2007. Two of my favourites of the year, Electrelane and Of Montreal made onto the list so I’m off to listen to the rest!
