#ShanghaiTang Menswear 2014 Collection

Men’s Camouflage Print Trend 2014

  Camouflage is no longer an invisibility device. It is now designed to get you noticed. How ironic. The military inspired clothing is still marching on strong and picking up more recruits by the day. The traditionally macho pattern was all over the menswear catwalks with designers such as Dries van Noten, Kenzo, APC, Valentino [...]

#SportsLuxe for Men

Wearing gym clothes beyond the gym has never looked more attractive. Indeed, in many of the world’s style capitals, it’s difficult not to notice the rise of the post-workout look. Sweats are no longer restricted to gym class; instead, they’re worn with a denim vest, a Sporty moisture-wicking zip-up jacket or a cashmere beanie.  Even [...]
