Look past the uniform and the hem line

With autumn / fall 2011′s fashions on the horizon, military fashion is a done and dusted look. It still crops up from time to time, but after a decade as a dominant look it now simply fails to inspire our own wardrobe choices. It does, however, continue to turn heads. And you can thank the past centuries’ skilled tailoring for that. Be it at a royal wedding or within the pages of a fashion magazine, military uniforms catch the eye.

It’s for that reason that British Harper’s Bazaar magazine turns to the style for their Tough Luxe pictorial. But note here and now that it’s a jewellery pictorial. They, like us, aren’t suggesting that you take to the streets dressed in G.I. greens and hot pants, but they do have a few pieces of jewellery to recommend to you.

Jewellery pieces in the photo shoot come from the likes of Tiffany & Co. and Georg Jensen, while the sexed up military looks are from the likes of Louis Vuitton and Burberry, with Gieves & Hawkes Military providing the authenticity.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
