It’s that time of year when men and women of every age are all forgetting about work and turning their thoughts to something much more important- Christmas presents. I’m not talking about gifts for the slightly odd uncle or some flowers for that 80-year old neighbour who suddenly said ‘hello’ yesterday even though you heard she had died two months ago (just me?) I mean a Chanel Menswear tweed coat.

The great Karl Lagerfeld is no idiot when it comes to the gift-giving season and for the eighth issue of Fantastic Man, he has asked Scott Schuman (The Sartorialist) to shoot the latest collection of Chanel goodies. Wow.

See after the jump for all the pictures from the editorial!

What I Saw Today’s pared down fashion sketches

This is a guy going by the name of Designerman, similar to the Sartoialist but at the same time oh so different. The difference comes in that where the Sartorialist is armed with a camera, Designerman is armed simply with some pencils and a sheet of sketch paper. His blog is filled with some really cool sketches of people wearing some really cool clothes, or perhaps just some pants. Though obviously less detailed than photographs these sketches give you the essence of a look, which is a lot more adaptable and easier to taylor to your own image, also they give you a crazy post modern backwards view into the process of fashion design: from sketch to garment and back to sketch again… ooooooh post modern and stuffff…

admin Entertainment, Heroes and Celebrities, News Leave a Comment

This is only vaguely fashion related but who can resist Brandish favourites Kanye West and Andre 3000 doing a bit of choreographed dancing? The other partakers in this slightly bizarre video are beatmakers Sa-Ra and P.Diddy’s former butler-turned-singer Fonzworth Bentley. Together they call themselves C.O.L.O.U.R.S which stands for cool outrageous lovers of uniquely raw style.

Purple Moccasins: Yay or Nay?

I’ve been slightly Sartorialist obsessed lately, but seeing as his Men.Style blog is pretty well hidden within the site, I thought I’d bring this post to your attention. In it, he notes that Italian men have taken to purple the same way British men take to grey. Now that it’s summer, they’ve graduated from purple sweaters to moccasins.
