InStyle Men

To keep up to date with what's trending for the lads, I had a look at some of the men's collections. I couldn't help but notice that some of them seemed a bit, well, less manly than some of the women's collections I had seen for Pre-Fall. Don't even mention streetstyle, floppy hats on men, anyone? Lots of interesting looking stuff, but quite frankly, "interesting" on a man most certainly won't do it for me. Fast forward into the real world - a sharp suit, with a great cut, maybe playing around with trouser length, width and patterns in subdued colours always look right. I thought Prada was a fine collection to cater for these needs. If you like to go a bit more quirky, Vivienne Westwood Man might be your choice. For those "off" days, I like the good old "I'm in the band" look - leather jacket, parka, striped tees, lumberjack and western style shirts, slim pants, antique looking ankle boots, DrMartens, Redwings, Chelsea boots, Keds, Chucks or plain Vans, some cool shades and a good hairdo is all it takes to make the dude look cool, right?

Floppy hats, anyone?  jakandjil.com




Fashion and Art: Mother of Pearl SS13

Some SS13 inspiration from Mother of Pearl. I like Maia Norman's sportswear inspired aesthetic with quirky details and luxurious fabrics. Each season Maia Norman collaborates with a different artist and thus combines fashion and art. "This season, Mother of Pearl has collaborated with New York based artist Francesco Simeti, featuring his artwork throughout prints and detailing, throughout the collection." Love it!


Here's to 2013!

Bye-Bye Knut! Hello 2013!

Happy New Year to you all! Hope you had a lovely festive season. So now it's 2013, I reckon you've done "Knut", what new year resolutions have you made, if at all, what are you expecting in 2013? I keep mine to myself, hell, if I'd speak them out loudly, I'd probably make a total fool of myself! Maybe fashion wise, don't buy all the crap you see on blogs, including mine, in fact read less blogs and don't instagram, twitter and facebook each and every aspect of your life! I even proclaim the death of streetstyle (the staged one that is), but at the same time I'm always interested in what's coming next! What could that be? Go out and get that job you always wanted, get in touch with your non virtual friends and maybe take up pottery or learn an instrument and get a bit more interested in politics. Dig out that jogging gear hidden in the back of your cupboard (that actually is a joke). Enough preaching...oh, the sale is on...gotta run! Yours truly. XXX
