A Grunge Revival? Alan Cumming Seems To Think So!

By Will Reid on September 15th, 2008

rex_801664b.jpgRex Features describes the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys as an event to “recognise technical and other achievements for the 2007-08 TV season…widely considered to be a precursor to the main Emmys ceremony.”

In my world of tired soaps like Eastenders and Coronation St, this translates as an excuse for C-list stars to dress up in posh frocks a la the recent TV Soap Awards (or something along those lines) that occurred in Britain where everyone thought that Ashley Slanina-Davies from Hollyoaks was a style star because she actually had a YSL clutch (and, I admit it, she did look wonderfully 80s.)

Anyway, Alan Cumming decided to bring a different flavour to the LA-based awards and opted for grunge-hair and darker shades instead of the usual skinny-fit suit, Converse trainer and grey/black palette that we see from most of LA’s men.

Manly Man Soap

manly man soap seattle sundires.jpgI don’t dispute the limited powers of soap, but I get the feeling that a wash with this bar could have you smoking a pipe whilst stroking your moustache within seconds.

Seattle Sundries’ Manly Man soap contains vetiver and clary sage essential oils. Vetiver is a bitter woody smell that only a real man can appreciate, and clary sage is a great pick-me-up. It’s handmade and contains a mixture of olive oil, palm oil and lye to keep your skin soft and squeaky clean. Snap up the soap from Etsy for a mere $4.50.

A.P.C’s Top Ten Essential items

The Top 10′s on Men.Style.com are pretty
fascinating, purely because they give you a tiny window into a designers life
and influences. As you’d expect, most designers name an Apple mac and a piece of
clothing amongst their top ten essentials, but some are more abstract than
that.

Take A.P.C’s Jean Touitou, for
example. His top ten features rice, water, books, Olive Oil and soap. Unlike other designers, his choices aren’t brand led. So there’s no 61" TV’s like Ozwald Boateng or customized iMacs like Paul Smith. Touitou’s choices are similar to his design philosophy in that they’re simple and uncluttered, yet not plain in any way. His
most interesting/bizarre choice however, is white sheets. He says he uses them to ‘cover
shitty art in a hotel room’.
