MENSWEAR AW 15 - HOT TREND FUR (REAL FUR)




One of the hottest trends for AW 15 for both men and women and seen on nearly every catwalk was fur, seen here from Marni ... What are your thoughts ... I know as I type the PETA hotline is in overdrive ... Surely it's ok if it's sourced correct right? I'm going to put it out there I'm a big fan it's one of best ways to keep warm during those winter months ...I have a sided a rabbit fur NARCISO Rodriguez number in my closet that I'm going to give a twirl this winter it was sourced correctly so why shouldn't myself and other fur lovers wear what we love 


Controversial I know use to comment box to express your views, but for the coming season it's a big trend and it's here to stay!

Superdry and Elite Model Look announce the UK’s freshest new model.



Fashion powerhouse Superdry and Elite Model Look announce the UK’s freshest new model.

 

Last week Thursday, Elite Model Look and Superdry hosted one of the most successful modelling competitions of the year in pursuit of finding the freshest new model in the UK. Now in its 7th year running, it’s the first time Superdry has teamed up with Elite Model UK as their official Fashion Partner.

 

Ten finalists took to the catwalk at Superdry’s flagship store, Regent Street, to showcase the latest Superdry Collection in front of a panel of judges, which included fashion experts from the teams at Elite, Superdry and, fashion designer, TV personality and Elite Model Look UK ambassador, Oliver Proudlock. Fashion advocates, bloggers and editors were among some of the many guests who were entertained with beats from Femme while sipping on uniquely mixed Perrier based cocktails. As well as showcasing the highlights from Superdry’s AW15 collection on the catwalk leading fashion influencer Sarah Mikaela from style blog Framboise Fashion worked closely with the Superdry styling team to add her unique take on two of the looks displayed on the catwalk. 


The competition was tough but after a series of catwalk looks, the winners were announced as Chris Tydings and Charlotte Corn who will go on to compete for the UK at the Elite Model Look World Final in November held in China.

 

Chris Tydings
“I was expecting it, I wasn’t expecting to win. I didn’t know what to do when they announced us, I can’t wait for China"

Charlotte Corn
“We did the finale and we walked up and I was second, and they announced the Superdry winners, and Elllie was announced  and I was so happy of her, and then our names were announced and I didn’t know what to do, I was just kind of standing there. I was just kind of in shock but so excited for China.”

The stiff competition meant that two extra surprise winners were also announced as Kofi Morris Heather and Elli Jordan who will both feature in the next Superdry collection campaign.

Kofi Morris Heather
“Ellie’s name got called out first and I was just clapping, then my name got called out and I was still clapping and I thought – oh I look like I am clapping at myself – I didn’t really feel anything, I was just like ah, alright."

Elli Jordan
“I heard my name, and then I was doubting it was my name, is that actually me it was just really weird and I was getting so emotional"

 

Renowned for their portfolio of critically acclaimed models, including Cindy Crawford, Ming Xi and Gisele Bündchen, Superdry was thrilled to be involved with Elite, helping young men and women enter the competitive world of fashion. Over the last few months, both teams have scouted the UK in pursuit of finding the freshest faces to take part. Superdry champions new talent and honours the opportunity to help young models carve their path to a successful modelling career.






Mossimo spring summer 2015




The recognisable streetwear brand, Mossimo continues to develop its collections with a focus on streamlined cuts and attention to detail. Coming up to thirty years old, the brand still stays true to its Southern Californian roots, where you can find injections of a beach inspired designs in each collection.

 

This season we see a refined sportwear range. There is a strong monochrome presence with colour print treatments added into the line. The oversized tees continue to make an appearance, however Mossimo have developed this collection to ensure that the clothes have a slimmer fit, eradicating that slouch look.

George Craig & Diana Vickers Star In Joshua Kane Autumn/Winter 2015 Campaign




Luxury tailoring brand Joshua Kane has tapped musicians George Craig (lead singer of One Night Only) and Diana Vickers to star in the Autumn/Winter 2015 advertising campaign. Shot in the London flagship store by photographer Bart Pajak and filmed by Craig Bingham, the couple also feature in the Autumn/Winter 2015 Campaign Film - Directed by Joshua Kane. Richard Biedul also stars in the print imagery


The Joshua Kane Autumn/Winter 2015 collection centers around explorer Percy Fawcett, a Rakish gentleman who cut a fine figure across Victorian society and always impeccably dressed in black frock coat, waistcoat, and top hat - indeed, every good explorer knows the value of an iconic hat. Joshua Kane imagined a collection highlighting three key stages in Fawcett’s life; his youth as a dandy, his voyages and his heroic return as a mature man. While also a seasoned soldier, shipbuilder and member of the elite British Secret Service, Fawcett lived a life full of adventure, passion, and intrigue as a respected geographer. An artist who had ink drawings displayed at the Royal Academy, it’s often said that Fawcett’s life inspired the Lucas film character of Indiana Jones.

883 Police – AW15 Bringing a denim revolution to AW15




883 Police – AW15

Bringing a denim revolution to AW15 

883 Police was born in the early 90s inspired by timeless Italian craftsmanship and fused with classic Americana – think Jack Kerouac’s seminal On the Road. Since then the brand has been responsible for producing some of the most progressive and iconic denim collections of the last three decades.

The brand’s constant research and attention to detail has won over a young, fashion-forward clientele with a spirit of youth and bold modern attitude: the resulting ‘denim intelligence’ being none more prevalent that in 883 Police’s AW15 collection.

From stand-out smart-cut denim shirts to bold-washed, fine-tuned jeans, louche leather jackets, overshirts and street-wise tees, AW15 still echoes that timeless Italian craftsmanship fused with a classic Americana style but in a staunchly progressive way. 

Youth, freedom, adventure: it doesn’t matter where you are – Milan to Montreal, Louisville to London – 883 Police always makes its mark and is now rightly established as one of the global leaders in denim. 

“Built for the Journey, choose your own Road”
