Topman Design Spring 2013

 

 

Topman is one of the most well-known menswear fashion brand in the UK. It has broaden it’s international market by exporting to the United States about a year plus ago. I personally like Topman, with it’s unique Britain style that we always see the UK band One Direction rocking it and definitely it’s rather cheap items.

Topman Design slowly pushes the boundary of menswear throughout the years with more and more interesting designs. I believe it’s style do not cater for everyone, but people who dare to push the limits of fashion.

This time, Topman Design Spring 2013 was influenced by the skate-surf-grunge story at California. It’s style definitely gives us the ghetto style from the hoods but with a decent British feeling to it. I think it’s rather interesting.

I wouldn’t say I would wear the match of clothings above out because to be honest, it isn’t my style, but I definitely don’t mind getting parts of the clothing, because some actually looked nice. Not the shorts, but I love the suits, sweaters and beanies on the models above because it actually looks decent! I guess that’s what style is about, getting different items from different brands to create my own unique style.

What do you guys think of Topman Design? Is the runway clothes too extreme or you would wear it? Photos and Reference are from Style.

Versace Spring/Summer & Fall 2013

It’s fashion news Monday (or Tuesday) depends on which time zone you are in. I wanted to make a variety of post and every week, there would be a post on fashion news. Guess that might be able to kick away your Monday blues slightly a little by looking at wonderful style and maybe would make you to strive harder in the week to achieve in owning styles like this. Anyhow for me, I love having a good look at some runway fashion even though I couldn’t afford them, but maybe it’s a reminder of what I want to strive for in life.

One of my favourite brands is Versace! I don’t merely like it because of it’s distinctive Italian name or the fact it cause so much to get a shoes of that brand, but I think Versace creates very unique style that stands out among different brands. It’s noticeable and memorable, but not always wearable in public and everyday life, but it’s definitely a brand I always look into it.

Versace Spring/Summer 2013 collection was based on the concept of “Pugilist.” That’s the strong man whom Donatella Versace saw as the pillar of her latest men’s collection. In the year of The Hunger Games, a gladiatorial fight for survival is a timely reference and, beforehand, Donatella was laudably vocal about the need for the youth of today to be gladiators on behalf of their rights. Therefore the style was more of a gladiator inspired style.

But let’s be honest, who wears the above for our daily life? It’s not exactly what we would be wearing maybe to the exception of heading to the beach. However the suits below are something I picture myself or anyone for the matter wearing to work etc.

I absolutely love the suit above because of it’s unique quality and would totally love to get one of them. The full fashion show can be view here. (link)

The fashion industry is always in a fast forward mode, before Summer is here, they are out with the Fall 2013 collection. I guess that’s how the fashion industry works. Since I didn’t find much clothes to talk about, so I shall just include the Fall 2013 collection. I absolutely love them! With all the suits and it’s just amazing!

“Masculinity is not something given to you, but something you gain.” With that quote as the design inspiration,  she showed jackets with sleeves pushed up, or baggy leather pants snapped at the ankle, or a motocross outfit outlined in gold zippers. Donatella was challenging the borders of taste. I must say it is absolutely gorgeous! Have a look for yourself!

Have a great day!

Ermengildo Zegna 2013 Spring Collection

 

 

In conjunction with the most recent Ermenegildo Zegna 50th Anniversary Wool Awards, I would like to talk about Ermenegildo Zegna collections. Ermenegildo Zegna is one of my favourite brands (part of it maybe it’s because the name is so authentic), even though I do not own any items from there, but I like going through news and blogs about their latest collection. I find Ermenegildo Zegna collections are sophisticated and elegant. It makes the model or person wears it feels like a class above with the fine details on the clothing.

Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013 brings elegant to the runway with silk as one of the main materials on the clothings. “The cashmere of Summer” Anna Zegna, granddaughter of the original Ermenegildo, called it. Silk showed up in every look: mixed into perforated knits, shining in shantung suiting, wafting in shirts printed with tropical banana or mango leaves.

Below are some of the interesting looks that caught my eyes while scrolling through Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013.

The detail of the shirt and pants shows a sophistication. I especially love the bag the model is carrying. For me, bags like these are a must have to the modern day male.

I love this double-breasted suit. This formal suit looks stylist and formal at the same time.

Ermenegildo Zegna added color suits and pants to their collection and made it looked formal and stylish altogether had me fascinated with their spring collection 2013. What do you think of Ermenegildo Zegna spring collection 2013? I can’t wait for that day I earn enough money to afford myself an Ermenegildo Zegna suit!

Night Out 1

Ever question what to wear for a night out drinking with your friends? I find guys won’t usually give much thought into dressing for a night out. Usually it’s just a jeans and t-shirt or polo. For me, I would definitely consider what I wear especially for night activities. It won’t hurt putting a little bit more effort dressing to bars and clubs.

I suggest putting on a pair of chinos for a night. I admit it’s not easy to match and most of the time I’m figuring what shirt to match my colour chinos, but a black shirt or t-shirt seldom would go wrong.

Chinos: Topman

Belt: Mark&Spencer

Shoe: Thrift Shop

Watch: Calvin Klein

It’s amazing sometimes what thrift shop are able to offer. I was glad I went Bangkok earlier this year and got a look at some of the stuff in thrift shops. Surprisingly, it’s design are not bad at all and it’s cheap, therefore more quantity to get! I definitely recommend guys to check out thrift shop for cheap clothing once in a while. Hope I inspired you to wear something rather than t-shirt and jeans on nights out. What’s your opinion on it? There’s definitely more to come on these topics.
