WISHLIST: A Closet Session with à la Fake Karl

By Will Reid on September 10th, 2008

Now this looks like my kind of party!

I feel like a horrible, disgusting sorry excuse for a fashion follower. Why am I bound by such emotional wounds? Why do I feel so sick-minded and wrong?

Answer: I want an invitation to Fake Karl’s closet. Yes, it’s true! I, Will Reid, couldn’t think of anything this week that could be desired more than a day of hanging upside down with Anna and Karl sipping our “respective drinks.”

And don’t even tell me you don’t want to too. There’s even a Yohji Yamamoto-shaped hole in the window!

Polyvore: The Beloved Tool is Brandished!

By Will Reid on August 25th, 2008

polyvore.jpg

One of my own punk-inspired ‘sets’ combines Dries Van Noten trousers, a Uniqlo t-shirt, an image of inspiration and a black crayon with Vans for some high fashion-DIY.

Polyvore has long been the talk of fashionistas and our sister site, Catwalk Queen, runs a ‘Style This’ competition based completely around the image-making tool. Whether it’s a Vivienne Westwood tie or a Topman ring, styling outfits has never been easier! Granted, we men have it a bit harder in terms of finding a wide variety of items but just search for ‘man bag’ and you have a good page of man-bags.

And best/worst of all? After you’ve styled your outfits you can even buy everything you’ve included in your image.

Look out for more Brandish outfits or watch the Polyvore tutorials and send your own to isabelle [at] shinymedia.com!

Brandish does Boulevard: Neal’s Yard

By Will Reid on August 8th, 2008

Here on Brandish we love a bit of sartorial realism. While Jason deals with cool buys and indie-labels, I tend to veer towards the bright lights of magazines and the high-octane glamour of ridiculously expensive items (WISHLIST anyone?) and the glossy adverts they inhabit.

I do love the high-street and so, with editor’s camera in hand and a trusty phone in the other (who knows what pickle one could get into asking for photos on the streets of Camden?) I set off to find London’s fashionistos.

Justin Lee Collins? Bob Geldof?! Brandish’s Top 5 Unlikely Male Style Icons

By admin on July 15th, 2008

Round these parts we know who looks good and who doesn’t, but who are the more unlikely chaps working individualistic looks that we admire?

Will Reid: Although Justin may be prone to a too-tight t-shirt, The Friday/Sunday Night Project presenter’s sheer charisma and the fact that those tight tees usually bear a cult band logo mean he’s earned his place on this list. With his faded flares and large Aviators Justin has made many a Friday night worth staying in for, and if he gets his shaggy-yet-manicured locks cut, I for one will weep.

Shiny Media’s Christmas Dress-Up

After my latest embarrassing fashion incident, I asked different Shinies “What Is The Most Outrageous Thing You’ve Ever Done In The Name of Fashion?” The answers were varied but pretty hilarious all-round.

It’s all wild stuff here on Brandish; a feast of dress-driven adventures and sartorial sacrifice! Continue reading for answers from some of British blogging’s biggest stars.

You Would If You Could: Denim Like Dean

By Will Reid on April 3rd, 2008

jamesdeandenim.JPGPoor Daniel Bedingfield- he crooned about his ability to be James Dean and next thing he knew he was blown out of the entertainment water by his own sister.

One thing that you will often hear fashionistos refer to is the latest ‘future classic.’ I have a problem with this term because despite its easy applicability I believe it is impossible to predict what will become a classic, an icon, a materialistic pleasure that will go on to represent an entire generation. James Dean filled this gap and from the word rebel he was the epitome of youthful cool, pulling denim off with tremendous aplomb.
