THE DESIGNER STEAL IV

Apologies for the delay with this one! I managed to lose the initial drawing so had to quickly rush through this one (Illustrator decided NOT to autosave this time around!). Cruise Fashion are offering a generous 20% off their online outlet today, 15% off tomorrow & 10% Off on Sunday, so naturally the Poor Homme (Dot Com) found a fantastic designer bargain from foraging their website. Check it out.

I’M HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THESE MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA CLEAR-SOLE BLACK LEATHER BOOTS FROM MR PORTER

*Cue groans at the title*

I’m more than happy to hold my hands up and admit that I wasn’t exactly the biggest Maison Martin Margiela fan until I came across the H&M collection and began doing more digging into their archives.

Since purchasing as much as I could afford from their high street collaboration, I’ve become rather obsessed with the brand, (“perusing the web until 4am for any Margiela bargains” obsessed), and their avant-garde/classic with a contemporary twist aesthetic, which has been perfectly portrayed by these Clear Sole Black Leather Boots from Mr Porter.

I FINALLY GRAB A FEW MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA ITEMS FROM THE H&M SALE!

It was a bit of a disappointing time for me when Maison Martin Margiela launched their collaboration with H&M last month. Everyone was tweeting their purchases and there’s me sitting at my computer, with not a penny to spend on anything. The worst thing of course with these designer collaborations, is many people simply buy a bundle of items only to be resold on ebay at extortionate prices, leaving those who actually wanted to purchase the collection to wear, with no chance whatsoever.

FLORA INSPIRATION FOR AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13

I always find it slightly unfair how womenswear trends are never really translated into menswear. Take the dramatic reinterpretation of floral prints this autumn/winter. Bright and colourful yet sombre in mood…Oh how I would love a needlepoint Dolce & Gabanna men’s jumper!

Now although this trend may not to every red blooded males liking, how about taking two or three colours from floral themed sources of inspiration, such as the marigold photograph I took this morning, and incorporate that into your everyday styling? Even pairing the smallest of floral accessories with winter darks will for a more “optimistic” end to the year. Here’s a little something I would wear.

AD CAMPAIGN: BRIAN ATWOOD AUTUMN/WINTER 2012/13 BY MERT ALAS & MARCUS PIGGOTT

Hot people, sex, nudity, come fuck me  sexy thigh high boots, a naked Chad White, and a devilish Candice Swanepoel in a photograph that looks like it came straight out of HBO’s vampire romping True Blood, or Mert & Marcus have secretly been spying on what I get up to on my Friday nights in the countryside, either way I’m sold!

See how easy I am when you get it right…

Blessed Be x
