10 Must Have Man-Bags to Last a Lifetime

Us men shop differently to women. We all know that. We’re into investment pieces matching them back with our kick-abouts. We’re happy with good underwear, our favourite jeans, and t-shirts, but invest heavily into shoes, watches and bags. Alongside of this now is luxury writing instruments and whiskey! Yep, as Euromonitors predict. With the change [...]

The Valentino Man

It seems ironical that the designers of Valentino, who pride themselves on some of the world’s most sought after suiting for men, have also designed what the world fashion market suggests is the most sought-after sneaker.

So does activewear offer fashion brands the same kind of growth potential that designer denim did a decade ago? We think so.

The Melbourne Watch Company

In the words of Coco Chanel, Luxury is meant to be comfortable. She is of course, talking about the fit of the garments you buy for thousands of dollars. What if the comfort level was not only on the fit of a luxury item, but also on the wallet as well? Wouldn’t that be a [...]
