Ideas to steal from menswear aw22 street style



Acielle Style Du Monde Paris AW22 street style

Wow, menswear fashion week street style has moved on from the days of Pitti peacocks strutting in suits and monk-strap shoes. This season’s street style is as out there as you like, with mega oversized proportions (skinny jeans? We don’t know her!), clashing colours, skirts aplenty (layered over trousers) and supersized footwear, whether that’s chunky technical trainers or Rick Owens’ cult platforms*. (Do not talk to me about Crocs).

I’ve picked out the more subdued examples from Acielle’s beautiful shots. Key trends: visible-from-Mars MA1s and puffers (but more glam than gorpcore), elevated utilitarian headgear (balaclavas, bucket hats, beanies in outré colours and proportions), cross-body pouches (again, in the boldest, brightest interpretations) and most unexpected – neck ties!

It’s kind of great to see men taking so many risks with their style, even though in many cases it looks like a hot, uncoordinated mess. Wait, haute mess is a thing? Oh, that’s OK then…

Quote of the day: Rick Owens



Rick Owens

“All the designers you’re talking about, we were a departure from the generation before us. At this point, we are the generation that somebody needs to reject. That’s just who we are. We’ve established ourselves. And somebody needs to violently reject us. And they will. I’m waiting.”

Last chance to shop the LNCC sale



I haven’t perused LNCC for quite a while but I noticed it’s practically giving away some of its superb sale goodies at up to 80% off. I had a nose around the site and added a few non-sale bits to the mix. The books are always a good bet, as are the accessories and scents… But for cult-status labels (Rick, Raf, Yang and co), you’ll be hard pushed to find better prices than these. To get an extra 20% off the sale price, enter ‘ALTOSTRATUS’ at the checkout…

Retail report: Selfridges ramps up its luxury ready-to-wear with a nod to Dover Street Market



Selfridges-designer-galleries-celine

It feels like Selfridges has been tweaking its third floor Designer Galleries for ever! Finally its finished and the verdict is quite the A-Z of modern luxury fashion. In short, the Selfridges buy has been Dover Street Market-ified. (And  that sentence right there gets the award for clunkiest sentence of the year. Soz.) I still remember the third floor as it was eons ago – contemporary labels like Anglomania alongside A.P.C, Whistles and Joseph. Pffft, this is so not that. Contemporary and denim have all been shunted up to the fourth floor, leaving gleaming aisles of expensive statement-wear. Of course, I can’t actually afford any of it.

It’s a textbook exercise in taste and wealth though. (more…)
