Ombré Olay!

Who said ombré was just for the ladies? Some fashion designers proposed ombré menswear to be very much on trend last year. Fashion forward thinkers such as Ann Demeulemeester, Raf Simons, Phillip Lim 3:1 and Jonathan Saunders Fall/Winter 2013 all highlighted the latest gradient prints.I am not surprised that Z Zegna creative director Paul Surridge proposed ombré [...]

Framing your MANscape

A mate said to me once in 1993, “I’ve just bought a pair of $500 Versace sunglasses. Is that too much?” And at the time I thought, “hell yes” but then I saw him wear them last week and they still looked brilliant. So would you say paying the price for quality and design pays [...]

Balmain Spring 2013 – The Lion’s Den

The Holster Belt – Ride em’ UrbanBoy
