Arena Magazine Closes Down

By Will Reid on March 5th, 2009

ArenaCoverDec460.jpgThe 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.

The April issue of the magazine is due out next week and rumours are flying that this issue will be the last. Thankfully for our fashion flames, the magazine’s diffusion mag, (if you could call it that,) Arena Homme Plus, will continue on.

Check back to Brandish for a full review of the possible final issue next week!

From Catwalk Queen: Individually, both Victoria and David Beckham have appeared in just their pants for Armani. Now, the famous husband and wife have joined forces to promote Emporio Armani underwear. Photographed once again by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the couple are shown lounging in a hotel room. The new ad was unveiled this week during Milan Men’s Fashion Week. The complete print campaign is due for release later this year.

Tom Cruise: New York Times T Style- Holiday 2008

By Will Reid on December 8th, 2008

dl.jpgTom 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.’

See after the jump for all the pics from the editorial!

Menswear by Mouret- Yes Please!

By Will Reid on November 20th, 2008

47b53d26-95a3-468c-8ebe-a2eb2b38dafb.jpgFashionista 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) and Natalie rightfully points out that Roland is not the first high-end designer to have launched a menswear line in recent times. The news comes only one month after Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga showed men’s fashion in his catwalk collection.

Look out for more updates soon!

Details rules of style: Victoria Beckham?

By admin on September 4th, 2008

detailsfeatures7v.jpgWhat do you do after you’ve had Lucas Ossendrijver, Consuelo Castilglioni and Michael Bastian giving out rules of style? If you’re Details, you get Victoria Beckham. Unsurprisingly, one of her rules is men shouldn’t wear skinny jeans (as she’s said before).

Her other rules are that style isn’t about money (as countless footballers demonstrate daily) and that men shouldn’t try too hard. The latter rule seems to be a recurring theme lately, but it’s a very vague rule which ultimately comes down to being comfortable in your own skin. Read the rest of Mrs Beckham’s rules after the jump.

False alarm! Victoria Beckhams mens line will go ahead as scheduled

By admin on July 15th, 2008

dvbjeans.jpgApparently, news of dVB’s mens denim line being pushed back was either wrong or premature. A rep told New York magazine that the report was inaccurate and that dVb jeans are due to be released on schedule. You can buy yourself some proper mens jeans in Holiday season (I’m guessing that’s around December) this year.

Victoria Beckham’s denim line unwanted by retailers

By admin on July 14th, 2008

1522articleimage_2.jpgIf you couldn’t wait to get your hands on a pair of men’s dVb jeans, you’ll have to wait a good while longer as retailers have refused to stock them. It’s not yet known whether Vicky B will retreat to the drawing board (she might even include some of those skinny jeans she hates) or whether they’ll just lower the price point. Either way, the line has been pushed back to at least next year.

Brandish Poll: Are You A Kiss-’n'-Tella Fella?

By Will Reid on June 16th, 2008

coreyhaim.jpgWhile silently delighting in the sleazy nature of the Daily Mail, I found myself drawn to Corey Haim’s tale of Posh Spice’s lack of pulling prowess. He claims that when Mrs. Beckham kisses she “does this little grrhh thing. What did it feel like? Like a girl gnawing on your lip!” Oh yes, that feeling…?!

Poor Posh, it must be rather rubbish to wake up and find that an 80s Teen-Idol has returned to rain on your sex symbol status (okay, maybe not sex symbol but let’s be nice!) It made me wonder if maybe I too would be rather boastful if I had got with the current Marc Jacobs model. Would I be whipping out stories of my romantic escapades with Lady B if I too had enjoyed her company? Or would I have enough self-repsect to keep quiet?

See the Brandish Poll after the jump to tell us what you think.

How tight is too tight?

By admin on May 23rd, 2008

f37e.jpgVictoria 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.

I could make a host of predictable jokes about cutting off circulation and the like, but I’m just going to let the following video (featured after the jump) speak for itself. It’s different, that’s for sure.

dVb- Men’s jeans by Victoria Beckham

By Will Reid on March 12th, 2008

1522articleimage_2The latest news on the fashion circuit is of Posh Spice’s new venture-into the world of men’s jeans. According to an article on DNR, Beckham "despises skinny jeans on men." Ouch, first we have to endure the horror of her Barbie-pink twin-set and now we are treated to her ever so subtle sartorial touch. (I really do try to reserve my criticism but give a guy a break!) "Guys should wear jeans big and baggy, with a big pair of boots or flip-flops–exactly how you see David when he’s out in his jeans and T-shirt," is the advice Victoria gives to the new generation of denim-doyens.

They are made from Japanese denim and design features range from the ‘aged-leather’ waistband logo to the purple pocket lining.  With the woman’s collection being stocked in stores from Colette to Harvey Nichols, it will be little surprise that the same stores are already enquiring about the brand-tastic bootlegs (denim not drink.) Prices range from £110 to £143 and the designs hit the market in August.
