Carola Euler is fast becoming one of the most talked-about names in menswear, having quickly made her mark on such fashion hotspots as b Store and Asos. We’ve featured some of the streetwear pieces she designed for the latter’s ‘Untitled’ collection, but what makes this still-shadowy designer tick?
Style Salvage ran an interview with the German-born designer, revealing such insights as her somewhat un-PC passion for mass-produced, disposable fashion, her aversion to ribbed tops and her love of jerseys. See after the jump for a few snippets from the interview.
Now is a great time for menswear, everyone from designer to high street is paying more attention to men’s clothing and it seems like the bar has been well and truly raised. The Style Salvage duo kicked off their Men Represent scheme a while back, and now they’re dusting it off and want you involved. They want stylish men to email in their five essential wardrobe items, show off their outfits or just have a chat.
It’s an admirable idea, and I love anything which increases the profile of stylish men around the world. So if you want to become part of an international community of fashionistos get thee to Style Salvage!

Sheer shirts have been on the catwalk for a while now and still haven’t been taken up by many men. The reason for this is obvious – not many men want to wear any kind of see through fabric. The plus side of sheer is that it can transform ubiquitous pieces into daring ones instantly. Like this Dries Van Noten shirt.
As Style Salvage noted, the key to wearing sheer is layering. A sheer shirt on its own would look horrific on anyone but a chest waxing model. But team it up with a simple shirt and you’ve good a summer look that will be way ahead of the times.

Shorts shorts disappeared off the radar for a bit at Brandish but the sun has come out, the Sartorialist is obsessing over cuffing and at Style Salvage they’re getting all heated over the guy on the left, so they’re back on our minds.
Bang on time for Wednesday here comes a poll for you to add your tuppence worth, let us know what you think of short shorts after the jump.
We’ve mentioned Diet Butcher Slim Skin on
Brandish before, but now you can actually buy their items online, we feel their
pieces are worth another look. If you like the look of sheer fabrics on the
catwalk but are worried about getting beaten up by idiots, this layered
t-shirt is a great way of dipping your toes into the trend.
The sheer layer of the tee is detachable
and can therefore be matched with any number of items (as demonstrated by
StyleSalvage) making the sheer fabric quite wearable – something you’d never
call sheer fabrics seeing how it was worn on catwalks. These are available from
Blackbird and cost $245.

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
skinnies. Has the
androgynous trend really crossed the gender divide?
