Drumming To The Beat Of Summer Fashion For The Guys

Drumming To The Beat Of Summer Fashion For The Guys

A little fashion preview for the guys! Here’s a sneak peek from the 2013 Men’s Health Menswear Collection thanks to our on-the-scene blogger, Shaun Ringler…  What a brilliant way to start the season, Johannesburg is moving from winter to spring. The sun sets later and the atmosphere is a buzz with the excitement of another skin bearing season. The one place where the “”sun” did not set was the annual Men’s Health Menswear Collection Show. For a few hours I felt like I was at New York fashion week. The Men’s Health team did a magnificent job, catering by Grand Central Café, drinks by Hunters and two gorgeous men serving fresh oysters.

Entertainment provided by some very juicy shirtless guys banging away at the drums. As one of the sponsors Mont Blanc’s new Legend fragrance filled the air with a deliciously sweet smell. The show was “a buzz” with big name denim brands like Diesel, Levi’s and Guess. Topman (A newcomer to the SA market)…

What to Wear to the 2013 Durban July? Local Designers Help You Decide

What to Wear to the 2013 Durban July? Local Designers Help You Decide

Still not sure what to wear to this year’s Durban July? The theme for the 2013 Durban July is “POSH? Oh My Gosh!“, but what to wear, what to wear? Check out what some of our local designers have to say on this years’ theme. Insider ideas on what to wear for guys and gals, plus tips and tricks to stay fabulous on race day! Craig Jacobs “I love the fact that the theme this year is so tongue in cheek and that’s the way I am going to be playing with it.” At heart he’s rather understated when it comes to his designs and his own dress code. Being posh, he says, is all about how you feel and the luxury of what you are wearing, as opposed to trumpeting head-to-toe logos to announce your arrival. “Comfort uber alles is essential,” says Jacobs. “There’s no point going to town with your outfit and feeling horrible while wearing it. “Clothes are there to celebrate who you are, and that should always be your starting point.” What is really hot this season, he gushes, is attitude – a sort of cool and collected aura you wrap around yourself, one that shows…

What to Wear To the Durban July? “It’s all about elegance”

What to Wear To the Durban July? “It’s all about elegance”

We’re getting super excited for the 2013 Durban July happening at  Greyville Racecourse on Saturday, 6 July! This year’s theme is a time travel back in style to steal the show, with the theme  Posh? Oh my Gosh! But what to wear, what to wear?!… Durban designer Haroun Hansrot says “it’s all about elegance” and taking us back to the roots of the Durban July, when the Horse-racing event was all about elegance! Hansrot’s spin on the theme forecasts gorgeous silhouettes with colours suited to skin tone, beautiful but statement-making headgear and classy accessories, both chunky and subtle – all while maintaining a feminine feel. “My advice? Dress comfortably. You can achieve posh in a variety of ways without being uncomfortable. Put a little thought into it, dress the part and ooze stylish confidence. A tailored suit can easily be accessorized with beautiful silk roses, and I’m talking about the ladies here. You can go simple or over the top, but whatever you wear, make sure you balance your look with the right accompaniments.” When asked what’s hot this season, Hansrot says it’s all about colour! Glorious, beautiful, eye-catching colours. “Don’t be shy to play around with colour. Although the theme is extremely elegant, the idea is not…

Ray-Ban and Jeremy Loops at Oppikoppi 2012

Ray-Ban and Jeremy Loops at Oppikoppi 2012

This year Ray-Ban celebrates 75 legendary years and what better way to celebrate than at Oppikoppi. Ray-Ban and music have evolved together over the ages and we were at Oppikoppi Sweet/Thing supporting local musicians, as well as adding value to festival goers’ experiences. Jeremy Loops is a modern day one-man folk band. Born out of necessity whilst working on yachts around the World, Jeremy discovered that there’s no-one better to work with than yourself. Now as the name may suggest, Jeremy has embraced technology in all its illustrious forms and creates his finely woven tapestry of sounds using his Guitar, Ukelele, harmonica and beatbox skills. He runs this all through a gamut of loop pedals, echo and distortion units and through the speakers to leave a crowd quite literally awe-struck. Ray-Ban got to follow around the talented Jeremy Loops at this year’s Oppikoppi festival. Check out the video

Fashion For the Guys… Paul Smith’s Spring Summer 2013 Collection

Fashion For the Guys… Paul Smith’s Spring Summer 2013 Collection

Paul Smith looks ahead to summer with a collection that brings a spark to the senses by celebrating modern masculine elegance, bold colour and sharp, refined tailoring. Colour is key and present at every level. Every shade of the spectrum is used from pale pastels to dusty blues, pinky taupes, and deep reds through to bright, hot, vibrant colour. Brought together, simple elements impact strongly against luxurious blacks and prints of scissors and manipulated roses. Tailoring is smart and modern; jackets, slim and unfussy, have shoulders that are structured to give definition, but are not big or bulky. Trousers are pleated and pegged, with a stitched in stay press to accentuate the silhouette. Shirts return to larger, longer, angular collar points with high neck lines, which are worn with slim silk black polka dot neckties under laddered scissor-snipped knitwear or short zipped leather pieces. Outerwear comes in the form of a fully waterproof reversible welded seam mac cut with raw edges, with a contrast inside colour, creating a stiff straight silhouette to be worn over the tailored look. Footwear is all about elevating heels in turn creating an upright posture. The shape is short in length with a point in the toe,…

Durban Blogger Brett Robson; My Favourite Trends

Durban Blogger Brett Robson; My Favourite Trends

Meet Durban’s Brett Robson, a junior ladieswear designer by day and fashion blogger (all the time) in between. Brett is a self confessed online shopping addict and Youtube tutorial fanatic who loves everything about the fashion industry. As today’s guest blogger, Brett shares her favourite fashion trends with us. Take a look… fashionbybrettrobson.blogspot.com My favourite thing about blogging is sharing my outfit posts. I love getting feedback & hearing what others think. I wouldn’t say that I have a specific style, I do tend to wear black a lot but other than that I experiment with different looks & styles from time to time – although, being a Durban girl, I am most comfortable in denim shorts, a t-shirt & my Havaiana’s. When it comes to trends, personally I don’t like to invest too much in them, as most trends come & go very quickly. I would rather buy one or two pieces and work them into my current wardrobe. I think that’s a cool way staying trendy on a budget. Invest in the pieces that you will have or rather wear for a long time. My biggest purchase this winter has been my black over-the-knee leather riding boots.  Worth…
