Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013

I haven’t update on runway shows for sometime, so I thought I like to cover one. Previously I cover Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 (link), so why not do a flash back to Fall 2013, which is more relevant since it’s going to be Fall soon.

Animal prints were all over the details: pointy leopard shoes, a tiger lapel on a tech-fabric jacket, some zebra. And yes, there was a conventionally pleasing camel duffel coat, but another coat in camel had a black leather revers. – Style

This season, it went back to more classic. I know some fans of Burberry would get it, since it can be easily recognize, but I would prefer a more extreme edge to it, try new designs though. I don’t dislike this collection, but having more edge to it, challenging the fashion would be more interesting to me.

One thing that caught my eye in particular is the bag the models were carrying. What do you think of it? Would you carry it?

This bag cost $1595 (USD), which is so expensive for a guy like me. However if price was not involve, I actually do imagine myself carrying a bag like this, however it needs to be well paired with your outfit and events to not look feminine since a round shape bag don’t give a very manly impression.

Tell me what do you think of it? If you like me to cover any specific topics, do comment or e-mail me.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014

Burberry Prorsum first caught my eyes for it’s Fall 2013 collection. I was walking down a shopping complex outside Burberry and the runway show caught my attention. But unlike any runway shows, I actually love most of it’s collection of that season. It is not only practical, but it’s fashionable. Most outfit combines with an umbrella so that it’s practical when it’s raining and London don’t get much sun during the fall and winter.

A small flashback to their collection back then:

Some of my personal favourites from that collection.

Enough of that, here is a few of my personal favourites from the collection of Spring 2014. I like how bright the colour that was use in this collection, it shows a mixture of bright colours in an outfit that actually grabs people attention. I personally don’t think it is easy to pull off, but it will be very nice if you pull it off.

I personally love the outfit above because of the simple white shirt and black slacks but with the striking colour tie and scarf makes it all the more unique.

I love the shoes collection from Burberry Prorsum where it doesn’t stick to the old fashion leather formal shoes but with newer design shoes, like boat-shoes…

Sorry for the slow updates. I was quite busy for the past few weeks. I promise more frequent posts and definitely more topics touch rather than only the latest fashion menswear runway shows. Stay tune. Do give me some feedback.

Prada Menswear Spring 2014

 

As models still stroll down the runways of top designers fashion shows, I shall be here covering more of it. I promise for a fashion tip post soon. Here is another fashion brand where I am always fascinated about.

Prada Menswear Spring 2014.

“Menacing Paradise” was the name given the painted façades that defined the show space today: palm fronds, sunsets, an equatorial town. The tropical paradise Miuccia offered in her clothes was a dark place, its sun a lowering, lurid threat. It put you in mind of all those movies set in the tropics where everything goes badly for the characters. Quoted by Style.

This collection was obviously inspired by tropical paradise where after having a look through the collection, I instantly thought of Hawaii or Maldives, anywhere with sea and breeze and it’s a good thing. I find Prada’s designs are more daring! Miuccia Prada challenge the statement of fashion and style which isn’t what we see that will be on “typical” suit. That’s my opinion though, that’s the reason why I like Prada.

Well, do you guys think the top 2 collection is consider formal? I think it’s depending. Summer is definitely a time to wear something like that and be called formal, but it all depends on the places and people you are meeting. I love the printed shirts though.

I find no matter how they challenge the fashion industry, they still bring elegance to the brand and collection. I find these 4 collection stood out among the rest, though some collection from this season is something I would personally not wear.

I personally do not have any Prada items, but it’s in one of my wishlist to get some of these collections. What do you guys think of Prada and it’s Spring 2014 collection?

 

 

Marc Jacobs Menswear Spring 2014

Menswear Spring 2014 fashion shows are happening all around the world, 4 cities to be exact. New York, Milan, Paris and London. Even though I still don’t get why it’s only Summer 2013 but designers already came out with Spring 2014 collection. No matter what, I will try to cover as many brands as possible, but most likely covering brands that I came across that I like, so you guys can have a look at some wonderful design.

Marc Jacobs stood out among some of the menswear fashion while I was scrolling through my iPad. Marc Jacobs has unveiled a lookbook for his Spring/Summer 2014 collection, exploring American heritage with a fashionable twist. A slick and glitzy feeling can be felt from the range of blazers, printed shirts and lightweight sweaters, which adopt a decidedly pastel colour palette. Meticulously cropped trousers show the perfect amount of ankle for summer, matching well with bowling-inspired casual tops.

I like the slick look with it’s pastel colour matching suit and pants.

The cardigan and sweater looks weirdly good on the models, but I am not sure whether can I pull it off.

marc_jacobs_022_1366.450x675

The folding is a little bit high from what I would wear, but it’s still a nice suit.

marc_jacobs_024_1366.450x675 marc_jacobs_026_1366.450x675

Love this suit, it is absolutely gorgeous!

marc_jacobs_027_1366.450x675

The red/maroon in this suit is lovely!

marc_jacobs_028_1366.450x675

I would say Marc Jacobs did an amazing job designing the suits with it’s pastel colour palette fitted the spring theme as well as the navy blue and maroon. It don’t look too hot to wear in spring either as like in my country, where it is hot all year long, it could be wore here as well. However some of the cutting of the clothes may be a little but hard to wear in our daily life as we don’t look so fit and good looking as the models, but we all hope to look like them when wearing it right?

Tell me what you think!

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.

Versace 25

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.

Versace 21 Versace 22

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!

The cow like design? I’m not sure what was the inspiration, but I adore the uniqueness!

I hope looking at these design by Versace get you inspired for the week on what to wear, what to get or maybe what to work for in life to get this! I know I have, since blogging this was the highlight of my day! What do you guys think about Versace? Do you guys like me having a day of the week just talking about fashion news?

Have a great day!

Camouflage are back!

Camouflage are back! Yup, you heard me right, camouflage used to be a big trend back in the days but it is coming back. This military trend on clothes used to be on every corner of the street and everyone had to own a pair of them to feel trendy at the time, however over the years no one was wearing and I suppose everyone just left it in their closet.

But the trend started picking up again when top designers and brands like Givenchy started putting them back on the runway. This time it’s coming more strong! With not just cameo pants, but shirts, shoes, bags and suits. It’s literally taking over the world.

However, I must say, cameo design are not easy to match with our daily outfit without looking like a complete fashion amateur. It’s distinctive design would probably make you look like an army if you are not cautious about how you wear it. Army wears camouflage uniform was to blend in with the surroundings of greenery, however we are to make a fashion statement and stand out though.

Here are a few ways to dress with cameo design. Pictures are from Riccardotisci.

Personally, I do not own anything with camouflage design. One reason is that it doesn’t attract me much, but maybe it’s because I haven’t gone into this trend yet. The other reason could be the difficulty in finding the right clothes to match it without looking like a fashion disaster. After looking through inspirations on the web, I find it amazing how it actually fit well with a simple black t-shirt can fit this distinctive cameo chinos or a cameo shirt fitting with regular blue jeans. I guess it’s a fashion I should and could explore more. What’s your take on camouflage design items?

Where to get camouflage design items? I went shopping today and found a few brand that carries camouflage design. I believe it ain’t hard to find since it’s becoming a trend. I went Topman today and saw a few camouflage design items that I find interesting and might get, maybe you guys can check it out as well. Photos are from Topman.

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.

00240fullscreen00340fullscreen00360fullscreenThis blue suit looks stunning on the model! This blue is such a nice color for a suit and definitely caught my attention.

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!
