Annie Leibovitz, Sean Connery, the Bahamas, Marc Jacobs and plenty of Louis Vuitton- sounds like a pretty enticing mix, doesn’t it? Well no longer must it remain a fantasy as days after Brandish giving you the gossip,WWD has released the ex-007′s advert for the French luxury-fashion house. After Keith Richards and Francis Ford Coppola, Leibovitz has again captured a mature cool that is slowly abolishing the bling/label-whore mood often synonymous with Vuitton’s accessories. The image above tells that “some journeys turn into legends” and the campaign is called ‘Core Values,’ emphasising heritage and a more sophisticated, timeless approach to fashion.

In these times of economic crunch, I know that I’ll be looking for pieces to invest in and that might just extend to a collection of these campaign images.

License to wear Louis Vuitton

According to WWD Sean Connery, ex Bond and cantankerous old man could be the next face of Louis Vuitton.

Louis Vuitton, which has featured Mikhail Gorbachev, Keith Richards and Francis Ford Coppola in its “core values” advertising campaign, has landed another surprising agent for its message. Rumor has it Sean Connery, the original James Bond, has posed for Annie Leibovitz’s camera, just in time for the “Quantum of Solace” frenzy.

I would LOVE it if this were true, more old men in adverts I say! And pipes, definitely more pipes!

Top 20 Cannes fashion moments

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

Men.Style.com has a retrospective of its top 20 Cannes fashion moments. Most of the fashion moments come from the 60′s and 70′s, the 80′s has two looks, the 90′s has three and the noughties only get one, that being Brad Pitt’s Tom Ford suit.

The fact that there was only one choice from the 00′s must prove that male movie stars have stopped making an effort. It’s like they’re all afraid of being featured on the worst dressed list and have decided to dress in black suit and tie wherever they go. I’m resisting the urge to go on a rant, but you know there’s a problem when sartorial dullard Daniel Craig gets feted for his fashion sense.

John Smedley V-neck jumper

By admin on January 8th, 2008

Judging from the price drops at Asos, the
John Smedley collection isn’t selling very well. Originally at £100, it first
dropped to £50, now it’s dropped to a lowly
£32
. I’m not surprised. Smedley’s uniqiue selling point was that Sean
Connery wears it. So what? He’s well into his 70′s now and his Bond days
were a long, long time ago. Not to mention terrible. Just like all Bond films.

But to get back on topic, this jumper is a
good staple piece; it’s well made, has soft cotton and fits well. Most
importantly, it’s at a price where it’s actually value for money, which is a
surprise for a John Smedley piece.
