Season of Colour Blocking

8 Nov

With bright colours and sober colours, monotones and neutrals, pastels to vintage brights, colour blocking has no rules. Colour blocking can be done whichever way you’d prefer. The trend of  colour blocking in India is so ubiquitous through our ethnic wear, that it doesn’t seem nouveau. We love to experiment with colours, we love the play of colours and yes, Oh Boy!! We are quite colourful. But I see so little colour blocking for men… Absolutely… So little.. So here’s some treat for the eye.

Rest apart, I would like to thank Activist Eyewear for featuring me on their website & Facebook page.

‘Spring is here and it’s time to talk SUNGLASSES’ !!! 

Designed in Brooklyn and crafted in Japan, Anthony Codispoti’s Activist Eyewear is a new addition to the world of lifestyle accessories infusing old-world craftsmanship with modern cutting-edge technology.

Activist Sunglasses: Wayfarers, Aviators, Lennons

Believing in workmanship and quality over mass-production, Activist crafts only 718 pieces (in honour of their hometown area code) of these limited edition sunglasses, designed in classic vintage styling with a avant-garde twist. Have a look at this video.

I was glad to get acquainted with Anthony and know more about the brand. He personally sent me an Activist Eyewear June 2011 lookbook customised with my name on it. It pleases one when brands take such small initiatives to connect with consumers.

Activist’s styles are based on the classics: Wayfarer, Aviator and Lennons. I love the Lennon-styled sunglasses, his Buddy-Holly glasses which I had also mentioned in my earlier blogpost: John Lennon – My Style Icon.

Iconic Lennon Glasses

Seemingly inspiring is Lennon that Activist has taken these classic styles and represented them in a city-slicker styled brandbook with 3 distinct looks – The East-Coast, The Casual and The LumberJack look.  Preserving its craftsmanship and promoting its futuristic eyewear through an innovative cardboard packaging, Activist Eyewear has nevertheless emerged as a stylish yet rustic-futuristic eyewear brand in a short span of time.

What makes Activist’s sunglasses one of the most sought after eyewear by trendhunters? Is it the unique set of frames, the Split Fit arm or the Oleophobic Seal? Listen from Anthony himself on Activist Eyewear’s Radio Commercial.

The Making of The Sartorialist

9 Jan

This is a video of the making of the ‘The Sartorialist’, the man and his work which has been an inspiration for many fashion bloggers.

Must watch!!!

Lanvin for H&M

23 Nov

Gosh!!! I couldn’t wait to write about H&M’s collaboration with Parisian luxuxy house Lanvin!!! Yes, its finally here today!!! I happened to have a glance at the new store window at H&M and I was totally flabbergasted!!! Not to mention, the website too is amazingly done!!! I love the graphic illustrations and the new look on the mannequins that flows right onto the collection, the t-shirt graphics, the packaging, window display and onto the digital world!!!

With all the excitement and hosh posh going to womenswear, I decided – why not have a look at the menswear collection!!! Not to mention if you are going to shop for  menswear collection at the H&M store, today, early morning you don’t have to wear a shopping bracelet or shop under just 10 minutes per section!!! WOW!! Lucky men!!!

‘Lanvin for H&M’ offers men a daytime relaxed-fit tuxedo jacket with matching jogging pants!!! I must say… quite comfy there!! Its great… it’s all about dressing up, it’s all about an individual style statement, mixing it up in your own fashion!!

Designed by Lucas Ossendrijver, the menswear collection includes a nylon trench jacket (who doesn’t want one now – it’s so in vogue), trousers with ruched cummerband for men, double-breated navy wool coat with gold buttons, navy seeksucker blazers and Alber Elbaz’s trademark ‘bowtie’. Love the whole 1920’s look with mouthbrow (thin pencil moustache ) and slicked back hair!!! This so reminds me of John Waters!!!
