Fencing fashionably, but not as I know it

In my days of thrusting foil and sabre I can assure you that not once have I encountered female fencers dressed as such. But such is the rise of sports fashion, and such is the break down of traditional boundaries, that such a look mightn’t seem out of place. And if it weren’t, I suspect it would be a far more popular sport.

The quotation, “if you strike at a king, you must kill him”, is, of course, Emerson. The pictorial, though, is from Milkshake magazine; one of the new breed of fashion magazines capturing our attention and spurring our imagination. Indulge in the pictorial by clicking on the thumbnails below.

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.
