The Walter Van Beirendonck show was one of the most colorful and crazy shows of this Paris Fashion Week. Van Beirendonck, one of the less famous of the Antwerp Six (alongside Dirk Bikkembergs, Ann Demeulemeester, Dries Van Noten, etc), introduced us into his
Famous Swedish brand Acne has presented its winter 2011/12 collection for the first time with a real fashion show, closing men’s fashion weeks. The tone exemplifies the brand positioning: simple, elegant, young and contemporary with touches of beautiful colors through the inspiration of streetwear.
Oh my god! I’m in love with pretty much every single pieces of this collection! Maybe it is because Junya Watanabe is in my top 3 favorite designers. The 70s ski print wool blazers are my favorite, but the tone on tone knitted cardigan, amazing shawl-collared Fair Isle Cardigan and his peacoat-hunter-jacket hybrid are equally [...]
[Yesterday we were talking about Dandy, well I think this collection perfectly reflects the modern day Dandy] Umit Benan, the bearded Turkish fashion designer doesn’t miss a trick: double breasts, revers oversize and shocking socks for a 70s revival. Everything is focused on details because the same details are the designer’s signature. The unconventional models [...]
What is a dandy? What does he look like? Some say a dandy is a particular person. Others say a dandy is a way of life. The key to finding a dandy lies in the details.

Small, independent label Mjolk has just migrated from Australia to New York for their SS 2011 collection. Trendland has been following Mjolk since 2009 (see past features here) and we find that they have a great eye for trends though their collections are very niche. I can not ever see too many guys wearing a [...]
We love when brands get artsy, when they go totally outside of their boundaries, and are still able to promote their clothing. And that is the case for Uniforms of the Decade, who always try to showcase their brand in a different way. This time it is with a music video (watch below)
British menswear label A. Sauvage released its inaugural collection at London Fashion Week. Adrien Sauvage is also known for his talent of photographery as you may have seen on his blog “This is Not A Suit” where artists or actors such as Dominic Cooper and
I’m loving pretty much every single piece, throughout designer James Long’s SS 2011 Collection. Long brings out splash paint and knits with a beautiful color palette. I wish we could buy some cool designer pieces like this in the US, but unfortunately it’s only in UK and Japan!
We knew that brands like H&M / Zara / TopShop were amazing at knocking off designers and analyzing trends (due to their worldwide offices and bunch of employees, running the streets, reading blogs and shopping). With enormous budgets, these companies are able to create “Fast Fashion” at unbeatable prices, compared to young designers or established [...]
You know that we are fans of beautiful fashion illustrations, our archive is full of amazing artists. This black and white series of illustrations has been drawn by Richard Kilroy to accompany the fall 2010 menswear review for
