Summer Sale!

June 28, 2010

It is now late June and just so happens to be my favourite time of the year – it’s Sale time! There are some brilliant sales on right now with offers of up to 50% off as all the big brands try to get rid of the Spring/Summer collection and bring in the new Autumn/Winter range. I’ve already spent a fair bit of money on the Reiss sale. I’ve had my eye on this casual jacket for a while but it has always been outside of my price range. However, I bought it for £79, down from £159, now that’s a saving!

Katy Perry Style!

June 18, 2010

Since Katy Perry burst onto the scene in 2008 with the controversial song ‘I kissed a girl’, she has sold hundreds of thousands records as well as reaching the front of top fashion magazines. Thus, media attention has incessantly followed her wherever she goes. However, every picture I see her in she just looks great. She has such an original, unique fashion sense that has attracted the attention of the top fashion labels. Her style is one of quirkiness but does quite reach the level of eccentricity of other famous names such as Lady Gaga. Here she sports a few outfits that are reminiscent of 40s styling, a look she suits well.

Handcrafted Couture

I wish I could afford this Sweater. The attention to detail is unbelievably which perhaps explains the hefty price tag. Elvis Jesus design some of the most impressive items of clothing around right now.

One look that will stay around for a while is the lumberjack look. These are casual shirts that are checked (tartanesque) and provides the image that you cut down trees for a living. I do like the look, it is just so common though. Absolutely everyone has one of these checked casual shirts. I am even wearing one of these shirts as I am writing this. I would wear these shirts more often it they were a bit more original. However, some of my favourites come courtesy of Bench who have a cool range of casual shirts.

Mark Ronson Couture!

June 3, 2010

Mark Ronson has to be one of the best dressed men out there right now, providing inspiration for all men. He is constantly being snapped in fresh, original outfits. He does’nt so much as follow trends but sets them. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to find out that Gucci have asked Mark Ronson to design a limited edition range of trainers that will be sold exclusively in a new  store, Gucci Icon-Temporary that recently opened up in London. Again, no surprise that these shoes are styled with Ronson’s iconic look – one being polka-dot and the other grey flannel. Both look great!

As we approach the start of the Football World Cup, I have found another designer that has jumped on the Football bandwagon. Louis Vuitton have acquired the servives of three of the greatest players to have ever kicked a ball – Diego Maradona, Pele and Zinedine Zidane. Now that would make for great viewing. Here we capture them playing a bit of table football for LV’s Core Value ad campaign in what has to be one of my favourite pictures of the year so far. This poignant picture captures the three legends transfixed in the sheer joy of the game. I know I would quite like a Louis Vuitton suitcase, however having one with the initials Z.Z (observe bottom right) would certainly make my day.
