Men’s Designer Looks for 2012

The following images will show you some fashion forward designer wear that will have you headed in the right direction. Many of us, myself included in the nineties, liked a look and copied it. We may have had a hero that we aspired to in a movie or off-set and decide to dress like him […]

KENZO Spring 2013, Into The Jungle

The term jungle is hand in hand with the term Kenzo. The original Kenzo Jungle Jap store, opened in Paris in 1970, is a brand touchstone. Going back into the wild—Leon and his partner, Carol Lim, recently made a trek into the jungles of Thailand — which was their way of bringing the brand back to itself. Now […]

Z Zegna Men’s SS 2013

Zegna would have to be one of MenStylePowers’s favourite designers. The collections are consistent, timeless (although on trend), and always exude the perfect cut. Ermenegildo Zegna is a leading Italian fashion house, specialized in men’s clothing. Founded in 1910, it is now managed by the fourth generation of the Zegna family and remains in family ownership. As well as producing […]

Women on Walls | Joshua Petker

Art is in the eye of the beholder, and if you want to impress that girl you are head over heels with, this is the only artists’ name you need to know. Girls love art. They love beautiful things, pretty things, and they appreciate the form of a female. Be it animal, feather or human. […]

Money vs.You

There has been so much attention on the banking industry in the last few weeks that MenStylePower just couldn’t ignore the message. Finally, we are seeing the crooks in the investment banking and retail banking institutes pay for their misguiding and abusive ways that tear hard earned money from the hands of everyday people. Let’s […]

Suit Porn…oh yes…

A successful investment-banker in an elegant Zegna suit, a lawyer about town in an elegant two-piece affair from Louis Vuitton, a politician on television in a formal suit-and-tie: all these members of the male species depend on their suiting and style to gain instant respect in their public life. Wearing an impeccably tailored suit is […]

Dsquared2 Spring 2013 Menswear

Lately in the fashion world, we are seeing collections become more artistic than ever. Why is this? Perhaps the fierce competition, the need to express creatively, the determination to be noticed, seen, adored? But what we don’t want to see, as men, is designers creating collections that lose the archetypical masculinity that is the life […]

Mad For Dad!

Yip. It’s Father’s Day in the Northern Hemisphere on Sunday and we are all celebrating. Many dudes will just call their Dad’s as it’s been stated to be the busiest day of the year in the USA for ‘collect calls’. True dat! But most of us will go straight into searching for a sporting, electronic or hardware […]

The Artistic Barneys New York

With the retail world struggling under the tentacles of Europe’s financial desperation, it takes real guts and creativity to adapt a new theme into the world of fashion. At a time of year when most New York stores entice passersby with promises of deep discounts, Barneys is eschewing ‘sale’ signs in favour of resin chairs in a concrete […]

The Elegant Pocket-Square; Mark of the Gentleman

Today we have many a man tie-less – only wearing jackets. Now, in the world of suiting, this is definitely perceived as being a little under-dressed. Do we care? Yes and No. There are a few accessories that men have the ability to go ape with, and one of them is the trusty pocket-square. A […]

Men in Black (How to wear it, and keep it looking fly!)

  Nothing looks as elegant and as chic as black clothing. It covers a multitude of sins, makes you look slimmer, works with almost every complexion and matches almost everything. Black clothes are the basis of many a self respecting dude’s wardrobe – from Kanye to Bond, Obama to Pitt, and even the regular Joe […]

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia

Sydney is pumped with A.N.T.I.C.I.P.A.T.I.O.N, as it bumps into several locations for its bi-annual Fashion Week sponsored by Mercedes Benz. (Hmmm, gimme one of those – preferably the SL55 all sport supercharged V8 engines producing an impressive 493 horsepower). Alas, the Divas, the Preeee-Madonnas and the devoted followers of this World called Fashion will be […]

Men’s Fashion Colours 2012

I thought I would follow up on the last article – DSquared2 – and let you fellas in on what the meaning of colors is all about. Our primal instincts are so important when it comes to selecting colors. Colors are visual and a lot is said when, well, you don’t say anything at all. […]

D.L & CO – Let There Be Light

MSP have always suggested that style is individual, and it is to permeate through all parts of your life. Don’t just think it’s to do with the shirt on your back. Style is the way you tilt your head, or which pen you pull out of your pocket, or how you decline back into your […]
