"We're live in 5,4,3,2..." Those must've been the words muttered by the folks at Diesel right before their latest project went viral, taking the world of social networking by storm. #DIESELREBOOT is the first project for Nicola Formichetti, the brand's artistic director. The campaign is fashion forward and progressive, with models featuring a mix of different sizes, styles, and ethnicities. It's an innovative approach which circles around the most important asset to the brand, the consumer. Nicola and the designers at Diesel are enlisting "a new generattion of brand ambassadors and fashioin leaders" who they believe will give the iconic brand new life.
Jeremy Scott, fondly known for his eclectic and often times outlandish approach to fashion; will be heading to Moschino and adding Creative Director to his long list of fashion duties, including his partnership with Adidas as well as his own fashion brand. Scott is no stranger to the brand, having even interned for the fashion house during his final year as a student at Pratt University. The designer was approached by Moschino in July in a seemingy effortless attempt to snag the print-loving "fashionisto" as the brand ushers in a new phase. The rest is history.
For some, the terms fashion and style are easily confused. At no fault of their own, these few are distance from the world of glamour and know nothing of the intricacies that define it. However, those who have spent their lives living, breathing, and love/hating the industry know that the two words are not twin sisters at all, but more like distant cousins to say the least. The wise and talented fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent once said, “It is about style not fashion. Fashions come and go, but style is forever.” Those enticing words got us to thinking as to how true this perception may be.
Spring has sprung into action, and so have all your favorite designers of menswear. For years now, fashion for men has been developing from more than just suits and slacks, into daring pieces that play with silhouettes, experiment with color, and give innovation to the consumer. This year is no different. Three key trends men should be ripping from the runway this spring are Prints & Patterns, Fit &Tailoring, as well as Color.
Prints & Patterns are great for the budding businessman and the more classic male who doesn’t want to get to out there with his wardrobe, but still wants to stay current. This season the runways were a blaze with prints from designers like Vivienne Westwood, and Sarah Burton who awed with a bronze combination gold and silver metallic blazer with matching trousers for Alexander McQueen (see left). The bolder male “fashionistas” can go to the extreme, while the further subdued can opt for more subtle approaches like Viktor & Rolph’s zigzag patterned black and silver suit also featuring a metallic finish (see slideshow).
