Balmain Spring 2013 – The Lion’s Den

Is it possible that the house of Balmain is rebelling against the very origins they built their empire on? JEANS. “It’s out from the jeans now.” Fighting words. Olivier Rousteing inherited a house built on denim. Over the course of a few seasons at the helm, he’s worked to steer it in a new direction. [...]

Vivienne Westwood 2013; Black & Blue!

Putting it lightly, Westwood’s long heritage with fashion; from punk, to aligning her work with the homeless and destitute stirs controversy. To say the least. But – collection after collection, she demands attention and discussion. Her resilience in the designer world commands applause, and her latest designs are hot hot hot. Westwood hits this collection [...]

Tim Coppens: NY Fashion Week

Coppens’ star is unquestionably on the rise. Since launching on the New York runways three seasons ago, he’s been scooped up by Barneys, Isetan, and Dover Street Market. So if you’re looking for a ‘style’ that is part-relaxed, part-geometric, a touch nautical, sci-fi and militant; then this is the designer to watch out for. Coppens [...]

Alexander McQueen’s Gangster Style #LCM

Alexander McQueen marked its return to London’s fashion calendar with a creepily compelling autumn/winter 2013 menswear collection. We guess with the latest craze on the 1920′s films to be debuted this year, inspiration has come from an era of chivalry, danger, masculinity and gangster style. London is riddled with perfect backdrops for the artfully discordant [...]

Aoud Jewelry; Wear it Proud

Here at Menstylepower, we’ve found that color is a scary concept for Gents who are just starting out reworking their personal style. Color to them represents a sense of femininity, which they want to avoid at all costs, so they tend to stay in the hues of blues, greys and blacks. Maybe a little latte [...]

The Holster Belt – Ride em’ UrbanBoy

I’ve always been fascinated by Cowboys & Indian characters. The saddle work, the elaborate head-dresses, the lifestyle, spirituality, the courage, wisdom and commitment. These, as you can image are all the romantic elements of the Cowboys & Indians era. Of course there was a very bloody side to it as well, which is devastating. But [...]

Herringbone – A Genteel Australian Tradition

Inspite of the hard yakka image of the Australian male icon i.e. out at pasture, driving horses or shearing wild rams in rugged denimwear and torn shirts, the Australian male style sensibility has over the years embraced the finer, more tailored aspects of menswear. This is especially evident through in the very genteel designs of [...]

Dunhill: A proper British tradition

Mad dogs and Englishmen might go out in the midday sun, but they only did so properly dressed – the Englishmen, that is. British style has always been quintessentially proper, minimalist, understated, impeccable and extremely functional. For the war cause, they gave us the pith helmet, for the white hunter came the long-sleeved safari jacket, [...]

Men’s Style at the Emmy’s 2012

Ah, the 2012 Emmy Awards: the triumphant wins and the harrowing losses. The beautiful women borrowing expensive jewelry and wearing revealing dresses. The speeches thanking people you’ve never heard of before. And, then, of course, the men wearing fantastic tailoring. This year, Jon Hamm looked as excellent as ever in his tuxedo.

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 [...]
