But it’s the shawl collar’s unexpected transition from…

Men’s geometric print sweaters: top picks & how to wear them

It’s the cold weather that turns sweaters into absolute mandatory investments, but it’s each season’s ultimate take on prints, colours and lines to eventually make the investments pleasurable and above all, fashionable as well. The men’s fall 2013 fashion trends witnessed the return to the more traditional menswear silhouettes and patterns, slowly steering away from anything that’s considered too over the top.

A man’s guide to autumn knits: choosing the best colours, patterns & fits

Despite them being close to a fall staple, an indispensable part of a gentleman’s wardrobe come the cold months, most men know little about sweaters – and therefore not many of them dare take advantage of the entire spectrum of styles and patterns available.

Renabla: how dirty is your mind?

When Lisa Schuil (a stylist whose work we’ve featured many times) puts pen to paper, the outcome is rather quirky and very different. Branching out into design, she’s created a t-shirt range under the brand name Renabla: the designs are simple sketches, but they certainly beg your eye to look twice.

The latter isn’t just any artwork, however, it happens to be a collaboration with Givenchy;…

Paul Smith’s Giro D’Italia cycling jerseys

Sir Paul Smith‘s cycling career was cut short by injury at the age of just 18; and while that inadvertently set him on the creative path we know him for today, he’s never given up his love for the race. Bringing both his passion for the sport and design flair together, Smith has designed the leaders’ jerseys for the 2013 Giro d’Italia – a cycling…

The white shirt: reinventing a classic statement for spring

“The white blouse can be light and floating, impeccable and austere, sumptuous and all-enveloping, tight and close-fitting. It rises up to frame the face. It sculpts the body by transforming itself into a second skin. Imputed with glamour and poetry, freedom and impetuousness, the prim white shirt turns out to have a thousand identities…” After reading Gianfranco Ferre’s beautiful quote, one can easily understand how…
