Skins fashion details now available on-line!

By Will Reid on February 5th, 2009

skins.jpgThe third episode of this season’s Skins is out this week and the series is already proving that the youthful fashion beacon has been passed onto a new cast. From the over-sized tees and shrunken dungarees of Freddie to the vintage sportswear worn with careful nonchalance by the fabulous Cook (on the right.) Channel 4 has launched a full on media campaign with the launch of a new season and this includes a weekly report from costume designer Edward K Gibbon.

Follow this link for the E4 website and see after the jump for the low-down on the style of the new Skins fellows.

Yay or Nay: Coolio’s Gangsta Get-Ups

By Will Reid on January 8th, 2009

rex_836233bz.jpgThis season of Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) has been very eventful and a glittering line-up including LaToya Jackson, Verne Troyer and Coolio means that each day is not without a bit of frock horror. Coolio has been catching my attention recently with his various looks. While his personality and jokes are fantastic, I can’t say I am a fan of his headwear or customised (by which I mean studded, embellished and gem-covered) jackets!

What do you think? Vote in our poll after the jump.

Doctor Who? Matt Smith- Actor and Possible Style Idol?

By Will Reid on January 5th, 2009

doctorwhoMatt Smith, a 26-year old actor and relative unknown, has been made the new Doctor Who and if not for anything else, he will be known as the youngest ever Doctor. Smith has appeared in theatre productions ‘That Face’ and ‘Swimming with Sharks.’ Smith is creating considerable drama with his appointment as The Doctor and my favourite (albeit unreliable) Daily Mail is reporting suspicions of a betting-related scandal.

With his thin frame, gauche mannerisms and androgynous looks, I think we have a potential style idol on our hands. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook wall.

Chace Crawford Shows His (Lack of) Fashion Colours!

By Will Reid on November 26th, 2008

Only a few months ago, we told you of how Mario Testino had let it slip that Chace Crawford was to get the cover of VMAN. Since then, Chace has got his cover (although the Brandish team weren’t overly enthusiastic) and a whole new series of Gossip Girl has begun.

In this video, the Grazia Team give Chace their ‘Grazia Guy Fashion Quiz’ and the results are disastrous! I might work in fashion but I’m sure most Brandish readers could score better. What do you think?

Watch the video and then e-mail us to tell us how you do!

Josh Hartnett Emporio Armani Diamonds- Just in Case You Missed It!

By Will Reid on September 30th, 2008

Josh Hartnett was revealed as the male face of the Emporio Armani ‘Diamonds’ fragrance earlier this year and now, the advert has been released! We’re yet to get you a review but when we do, I hope it’s better than this advert. I was expecting something a bit more dramatic- the ladies got full-on glitter sing-song from Beyonce Knowles!

Celeb Style: Steve Jones’ Summer Lovin’

By Will Reid on August 20th, 2008

stevejones.jpgSteve Jones was seen on Monday with rumoured new girlfriend Fearne Cotton. A stylish, undoubtedly TV-friendly pair, I have to admit that I actually think Steve is better dressed on this particular date.

Let’s start with the leather jacket- this staple item is unexpectedly hard to pull off (without looking like a T-Bird; never a good look.) Jones’ version is masculine yet still on trend and the slim-fit detail means that your swagger won’t be shapeless. The white canvas brogues are a perfect summer piece and can be worn on holiday with a pair of shorts or actually in the UK with jeans, as seen here. Add black Wayfarer-style glasses and run the risk of looking like a trend-victim or try a non-Ray Ban style and be all-out original, fashion quirkiness will get you a Brandish A-Grade.

Love The Look: George Lamb’s Lashings of Fashion Fabulousness

By Will Reid on July 21st, 2008

georgebblb.jpgBig Brother’s Little Brother (BBLB) presenters have a tradition for being rather cool fellows and after the likes of Dermot O’Leary and Russell Brand, George Lamb is the latest man to be lighting our screens with his look. Take a look at the screencap (left) from a recent episode of BBLB; the cropped and turned up trousers, the worn-in brogues, the grey (still a key colour) and the Alber Elbaz-inspired bow-tie.

Topped off by the same messy but manicured hair that catapulted the likes of Bob Geldof to style icon status, Lamb has the foundations of an up ‘n’ coming sartorial institution.

Alexa Chung and Henry Holland to present T4 fashion show

Rumours abound that Henry Holland and Alexa Chung are going to present a T4 fashion show and the latest is that it will be called ‘Frock Me’… geddit?

Alexa Chung doesn’t have any formal fashion credentials but thanks to her quirky style she’s become a bit of a fashion icon for the indie crowd and topped the Guardian’s Summer Cool list. It’ll be interesting to see her pair up with Henners, hopefully they’ll hit it off and have us chuckling through our hangovers.

Can’t be any worse than watching 20-something barmen/models/whatever bicker on Shipwrecked that’s for sure.

Celeb Style- TGI Friday Fashion with Ashton Kutcher, Russell Brand and Gok Wan

By Will Reid on April 28th, 2008

ashton.jpgBeing boring, tired and suffering from a slight addiction to Russell Brand meant that I spent most of Friday night in front of the TV watching a double whammy of my favourite shows. Yes, for those who missed it, the 25th of April saw The Friday Night Project (with Gok Wan) and Jonathan Ross (with Russell Brand and Ashton Kutcher) provide an excuse for home imprisonment across the UK.

But with this line-up of talent came a few great dollops of style brilliance; Russell’s flip-flops, Gok’s “tin-foil” shirt, Alan’s jumper and skinny tie- the list goes on. I however, have decided to present you with the look I see as most wearable.

See after the jump for details of the great get-up.
