You've been asking about it and now it's here. Catch the first installment of my friend and menswear designer, Stiaan Louw's documentary. If you've ever wondered about what he's like in person, here is your chance. Directed by Kyle Lewis, the short contains interviews with those in the know, including models and fellow designers. A real treat!
Stiaan, who has been designing for around ten years has been going through a shedding process and this is just the beginning of only wonderful things to come. I, along with South Africa look forward to seeing just what that is! Enjoy.
Bloggers know when something is about to make an impression on the fashion World. We know it because we all want it, and we all want to blog about it (Kevin and OOoOO). Christian Louboutin is no stranger to this blog, and I would proudly like to introduce you to these studded flats which now come in Leopard and Zebra print. Now these are statement shoes! Approach cautiously.
Statement shoes, as I've been asked before should be worn with care. Dress your whole outfit down to allow the shoes to do the talking. That's how you end up paying £315+ for a pair of shoes. Of course like most trends, other designers have jumped on that bandwagon too. Including Giacomorelli, whose shoes were spotted by Tommy Ton on the streets at Milan Fashion Week. I have a tough time deciding which ones I like more.
While Christopher Bailey is not bowling you over with colours and prints that we have not seen before, what he is doing is keeping the legacy of the brand fresh. Burberry just wouldn't be Burberry without the trench, and frankly I wouldn't want it to be any other way. Keeping to a similar colour palette as last season Bailey introduced a heavy Rocker influence with the use of the Stud trend in many forms.
In addition to this, Bailey experiments with mesh tops, transparency and even leather shirts to further define the 2011 Spring/Summer season as a prominent Biker rebelliousness. The point he makes is that the subtlety's of his changes are effective without overpowering or insulting any die-hard Burberry Prorsum fans, all the more pulling Burberry to the modern age.
And of course, finally Burberry releases a Gum-boot for their mens range. Which in our current climate would be perfect! So you know...
