MenStylePower was privy to a small collection just days before at an innovative retail space in Paddington, where the Ten Pieces stand was tucked away in a corner among the dominating womenswear comrades. But the concept that the […]

Winter is Coming; Jon Snow

The biggest attraction to The Game Of Thrones, is that the people who are trying to do good, keep getting killed off. This doesn’t make sense! We want the HERO! We want the happy ending, the righteous one. We want justice and to kick that painful Lannister King off his arrogant high throne in a […]

The Zoolander x Valentino Moment of Brilliance

It’s fashions finest moment – of not taking itself too seriously. We wipe our brows in a moment of relief when this happens as we all know fashion isn’t performing brain surgery. It’s an art which constantly defends many a comment when it comes to the industry and the commercialised and capitalistic associations. But today, we saw […]

Moschino Menswear 2014/5

Jeremy Scott. Man, you’ve done it again. Surprised us, made us cringe, made us look again and glorified the biggest small business in the world. I mean, who does that?! We’re bringing this collection to you because Gents, there’s always that outspoken and comical personality in us that wants a voice. Usually that’s when we’ve […]

Zegna: Like You’ve Never Seen Before

It came as a surprise to hear Pilati insisting that his transformation of Zegna is happening in gentle increments, because on the evidence, he’s already come a long way in shifting the shape of the brand. Jackets are long, but they buttoned quite high, so the bottom flared a bit over full, slightly pegged pants. […]

A. Sauvage – African Art for the Suit and Tie

It’s always been a pondering artistic question regarding menswear as to the amount of interchangeable garments available with a gents suit. The number of designers who want to rescue the suit and present it as not-just-a-dressy-thing for today’s man keeps on growing. It is, of course, a testament to how important this menswear staple is, […]

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. It’s ironic, yet not surprising as we see the luxury high-end treating the mid-market as a vessel for uber-artistic […]

2014 TREND: Taking WHITE Seriously in Menswear

White Noise Saying white will be trendy is a bit of a misnomer because in fashion, white is as classic as it gets. But when it turns up repeatedly, in almost every collection in the form of coats, shirts, pants, suits and shoes, you know it is time to take white seriously. White is incredibly […]
