Not short of confidence

When writing our hot pants fashion trend guide I was certain that we’d see plenty of the look in the season’s pictorials, and we have. I didn’t doubt that the look would be seen in any number of night spots, and it has. But that we’d see it featured amongst our street fashion style photos? Of that I wasn’t so sure. It was bound to be worn, but not commonly. And that a street style photographer would be on hand? Even less of a chance.

But with high-Summer 2010 fashion now with us, here it is. Click the picture for the rear view, and expect another take on the trend very soon.

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’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’s co-founders.
