Accessories are always a key part of fall fashion. They help to negate that feeling that it’s hard to be stylish when you’re bundled up like a human burrito in ten layers of woolen clothing.

Men’s details: a few new pieces

The most perfect vintage sunglasses store in Italy offered me many a great thing: a new must-visit store in Italy’s north that I’ll return to for years to come. Exceptional service. Three pairs of mirrored sunglasses so good that I’d wear all three at once if only I had three sets of eyes. This is them, along with a few other new accessories I’ve both…

Project DNA: 3D printed accessories as wearable art

It’s not your run-of-the-mill accessories collection, that’s for sure: Catherine Wales’ “Project DNA” is comprised of pieces that straddle the oft-unpopulated space between jewellery, clothing and wearable art. 3D printed from white nylon, Wales’ eight piece collection was inspired by identity and the visual structure of human chromosomes, melding science and fashion in the most visually unique of ways. A scaffolded corset rises up to…

Men’s details: the perfect, slim wallet

I hate bulky wallets. Not the least because I don’t understand why a person needs access to every card they own every moment of their life – can’t we all just carry the cards we need for the day ahead? I also hate bulky wallets because they can ruin a look. When a gent pops a bulky wallet into the breast pocket of his suit…

WIN: ultra stylish camera accessories from ZKIN

We’re all photographers, now; whether we chronical our lives on Instagram using nothing but our iPhone, whether our point-and-shoot stands as an essential alongside our keys and wallet, never to leave our side; or whether we cherish our DSLR as the high quality keeper of our memories and moments. And for professional and hobbyist alike, there’s a new-found need we all have in common: the…

Italy’s vintage sunglasses treasure trove – and why you need to visit it

Great pairs of sunglasses are few and far between. Sure there are some nice styles out there but, for the most part, all the quality sunglasses you’re ever likely to own are made by one company. So while most of us desire to be anything but generic, the glasses which adorn our faces usually are. Hence the rise of elaborate, artisanal sunglasses – an ocular…

8 of the best: mid-finger rings

As fashion trends grow and evolve and boundaries are pushed, no part of the body is off-limits for dressing up and accessorising. In the past few seasons that’s meant new life for earrings – reinvented as the now ubiquitous ear cuff – and rings. The latter, you’ll have no doubt observed, have crept from below the knuckle to above it, taking over every joint of…

Beanie attitude: how to wear a beanie this fall

Women are known for having the tendency to skip comfort, especially when the ultimate goal is to achieve a flawless head-to-toe look. This usually translates to wearing heels despite the amount of time spent walking or standing easily surpassing the first bearable hour, or forgetting all about headgear when the temperatures start dropping at a considerable rate. Most of times it’s all worth it in…

10 of the best men’s accessories from the spring 2014 runways

Fashion has a fascinating way of galvanizing people into constantly thinking about the future, making it always about what’s next, more than it will ever be about what’s hot right now. Past and present get often clouded by the alluring thought of a better, brighter, far more exciting and not so distant future. With the official start of summer 2013 not even that far behind…
