THE POOR HOMME ERA

“Wandering the streets of London, seeking a Maison for his Margiela, ranting about random things to ratchet people, full-time forager of designer deals.”

Ever since I ditched the world of freelancing and became a full time Graphic Designer for two british menswear brands, my blog took a backseat… Well, that & my last web-host practically destroyed the blog when it was migrated. Months of hard work building up a following, increased hits & revenue went straight down the drain overnight & unfortunately was never recovered.

9 months later however, my baby as been reborn & rebranded with a new name, new URL & new logo – The Poor Homme (Dot Com). I’m ready to go back to blogging about fashion & design for fun, whilst also having an outlet again for my “ratchet, hood-rat sandwiched within a Ladurée macaron” opinions on advertising campaigns, look books & magazine covers, along with my unique ability to forage the web & bargain bins for those designer deals. All I ask is that you be patient while I familiarise myself with WordPress & basic grammar again.

Thank You!

The Poor Homme

COVER: CAROLYN MURPHY BY CASS BIRD, VOGUE KOREA, NOVEMBER 2012

The beautiful Carolyn Murphy is a vision in Céline on the Cass Bird lensed cover of November’s Vogue Korea.

Although it’s debatable what a “Fashion Mook” is (according to urban dictionary it’s an arsehole/loser…but I take it they are referring to the Chinese term wooden dummy!), the lack of colour, neat and minimal type, and of course that stunning Céline outfit is simply wonderful! Even the uncouth comment by a friend regarding her pose doesn’t put me off.

“We’ve all done something in our lives we’re ashamed of. Some of us have fallen for the wrong man, some have let go of the right woman. There are those who have humiliated their parents, and those who failed their children. Yes, we’ve all made mistakes that diminish us and those we love. But there is redemption if we learn from those mistakes and grow.”

~ Mary Alice Young, Desperate Housewives, 2×19

AD CAMPAIGN: TOM FORD BEAUTY, AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

Mert & Marcus sure are going to have an extravagent Christmas this year with all the pay-cheques that have been rolling in!

The duo are responsible for shooting blue/green eyed beauty Snejana Onopka for the A/W 2012 Tom Ford beauty campaign and praise the lord, after the not so great collection campaign, it’s the Tom Ford I’ve been longing for. Of course no campaign would be complete without the handsome designer himself making an appearance somewhere, but the Ukrainian beauty has definitely made sure that all eyes are on her with those high cheekbones, crimson nails and seductively glossy red lips!

AD CAMPAIGN: FILIPPA K AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY LACHLAN BAILEY

When the core values of your brand are “Style, Simplicity and Quality”, then enlisting Lachlan Bailey to photograph models, Emily Baker and Clement Chabernaud is the only way to go.

Set within an urban setting, and with art direction provided by David Hägglund, check out the beautifully photographed, clean-cut and minimal Filippa K women’s & men’s autumn/winter 2012 campaign here. Definitely one of my favourites this season!

PIC O’THE DAY

Robert Pattinson attended the premiere of his new film “Cosmpolis” in utter style!

Let’s just ignore the fact the Twilight star looks a little more “subdued” than normal, and focus on the beautiful Gucci two button notched lapel navy plaid Dylan suit coupled with a TDF salmon coloured shirt and charcoal grey textured Dakota tie. Amazing combination! The first thing that caught my eye was the how the pink hue of the shirt brought out the plaid detail of the magnificent suit. Kudos to his stylist and Gucci, I will definitely be replicating this look and I’ll even add a touch of the ol’ vampire brooding!
