There are loads of people who try to transform a trivial action into something pseudo artistic. But few succeed. A good example of this talent is that of Nowness; each and every one of its videos is a true lesson in art direction that leaves us bewitched. In this video starring a stallion of a man with Greco-Roman godlike features we learn how to shave our entire body without feeling pain, in just five minutes of our busy lives and with what seems to be extreme pleasure. And just like that, you can begin to ask for appointments.
Loads of shoulder pads, mini sunglasses, crosses, square bowler hats, briefcases and even skirts, all together, that’s what Thom Brown offers us for the next A/W, that, by the looks of it, it’s going to be freezing. We loved the event he organised in Paris last January, specially because our editor Guillaume was hitting the wooden structure with a hammer until he had to stop in tiredness (yes, we do have the video that proves it). A non conventional but attractive collection suitable for men that want to be stared at.
Some days ago we talked about a couple of collections that urged you to go and shimmy in the middle of Greenland dressed like Beyoncé. Here we go again. Here you have 22/4 Hommes Femmes fall-winter 2013-2014 collection. Everyone faces those days when you would’t step out of bed if you could, either because of the cold or just because of laziness. We believe that 22/4 Hommes Femmes thought about that when developing their new collection for the next Winter. All their new designs are mean to face the cold and there’s no better way to do that than carrying the duvet to the street. Even carrying the pillow. For the not so audacious ones, there’s also another option that suggests wearing a bathrobe or a robe/jacket. A nice way to feel at home everywhere.
Belgian designer Dirk Bikkembergs’ last collection can make you feel anything but cold. Featured in the last Milan Fashion Week, he suggests to fight the most freezing days of the year with blankets tied around the neck or with the most 80s sky pants the next winter.
If none of this two new project is your cup of tea, you can always choose tight leggins or knit pants matched with sheer silk shirts; a bit ironic to face cold, don’t you think?
