The sad news yesterday was that Arena magazine has been closed down by publisher Bauer Media. The magazine has been running for 22 years and it has always been BOT (Bang On Trend) despite rapidly falling circulation figures in recent years.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have appeared in the latest issue of New York Times T Style looking actually quite alright in full-on Old-Hollywood shots by the genius fashion photographer Solve Sundsbo. The pair look as if they have stepped off a film set in sharp tailoring and, after all those Scientology-maniac rumours, it seems quite fitting that they take the covers of the magazine’s ‘Reinvention Issue.’

Fashionista editor Natalie Hormilla has let it slip that Roland Mouret is set to make a menswear collection. It is rumoured to launch during the next men’s Fashion Week (A/W 2009)…
Apparently, news of dVB’s mens denim line being pushed back was either wrong or premature.

Victoria Beckham would not approve of this new trend. Apparently fans of Mustang skinline jeans (a brand that makes Cheap Monday jeans look baggy) are filming themselves in their skin tight jeans and posting it on youtube. I’m not sure whether this is a hoax, fetish or trend – but for argument’s sake let’s call it the latter.
The Met Institute Costume Gala is one of Manhattan’s biggest social events of the year, and draws most of the fashion industry as well as the big names in Tinseltown. This year’s theme was Superheroes, after the exhibition “Superheroes: Fashion and Fantasy” which runs from Sept 1.
The latest news on the fashion circuit is of Posh Spice’s interesting new venture-into the world of men’s jeans. According to an article on DNR, Beckham “despises skinny jeans on men.”
