What I like about this editorial at first was the bone structures of the model both on rear and side views. Hair was polished and I like the waves on sides - making the look more subtle. The styling was just too dark, making it more impossible to notice the stitches and design, but then, wait until I get to see what is behind -BACKBONE?



No belt insertions, no support, just pure good fitting



Sheer fabrics and sleeves that remind me of terraces. Leggings and shorts which I can't get enough of.

Velvet Por Homme

This year, we are seeing more and more variation within the clothing industry and one fabric that has made a real impact lately is velvet. Velvet is a really extravagant fabric which oozes class and wealth. I immediately associate it with the upper class, but with this comes the stigma of it being “stuffy” or old. This is not the case however as we can bring it bang up to date with the right surrounding pieces. Velvet is present in a lot of the new collections this year, but you will find the best examples in formal wear such as: Lined shoes, ties & bow ties, blazers and waistcoats. Velvet has made its way back onto the runway but not every man feels comfortable going with a velvet suit. If you want to stay fashion forward without jumping to deeply into the trends, consider getting a blazer or suit jacket with a velvet lapel or add a velvet trouser to your tweed blazer.

Garage Dec-Jan 2010 Issue: Varsity and Letterman Jackets 50's Style

During the 1950′s, varsity jackets became the rage among high school and college students. Just as in the 1960′s with the culture radically changing and styles with it, fashion has reinvented once again the high school uniform into high street style, even crossing runway boarders for Louis Vuitton, Junya Watanabe and Calvin Klein. Garage’s latest issue features “Retro Sleek: How to Rock the Total Look from Fashion to Hairstyle”, “Top Holiday Styles”, “Party Time!”, “Super Trooper” and more!

“Comme des Garçons designer Junya Watanabe’s AW10 collection combines heritage design with the Watanabe’s unique use of contrasting fabrics. This leather varsity jacket takes this American college classic and adds a quilted camouflage lining, a subtle but well considered variation that works exceptionally well.” The results are beautiful and Vanson Leather construction is always top notch.

VMAN: Youth in Revolt


I used go to the Royal School of Ballet in Copenhagen, but i quit when I was 11 or 12. I love Copenhagen. I go out if there's something fun going on, but I'd rather stay home and drink with my friends on the weekends. Right now I have two piercings: smiley and septum. I'm thinking about getting my hips pierced soon.


I guess you would call it a rave bus. My friends helped organize—basically they DJ while the bus drives everyone around to all the parties going on that night.



Yeah, I guess we kind of represent the Copenhagen shoegazer scene. But we are doing really well elsewhere too. We released an EP a few months ago with the London label Club AC30, and have been playing over there a bunch. On our first trip we took an eighteen-hour ferry ride from Copenhagen. The apartment on the boat was way nicer than the hostel we stayed at in London.


Our music's built on teenage lust. Like these parties we do at a lake every summer. Everyone is just fucking everybody at that party. Love love love. It's kind of like that. Or maybe like when you are in a relationship and it feels nice—but there is the feeling that it is going to hurt in the end.


I’d like to become a photographer; right now I’m looking forward to a trip to Ghana.

Current: Singapore Swim Trunks Controversy

In style, we fashionistos/fashionistas know no limit in expressing our thoughts and emotions in our manners of dressing and accessorizing - even if people sometimes think it is foul or offensive or worse, discriminating if you live in a depot of conservatism and religion. Recently, the Singapore Water Polo Team was bombarded with comments and criticisms regarding the controversial issue of the swim trunks worn during the Asian Games in Guangzhou.

The sporting design of the trunks was a crescent moon and 5 stars, incorporating the elements of the National Flag.

There were comments which find the design as bold as it shows the creativity and openness in the Singaporeans. Others says to irradicate the design  only shows shallowness and should never go uproar over something so trivial.

Though most find it as disgraceful to the National Flag. The team meanwhile, intend no plans to disrespect anyone even a National symbol, apologized and will work with the designers to change the design immediately upon their return.

What do you think though?
