His style is decidedly out of the ordinary and unconventional, his clothing collection is inspired byfast food restaurants and his style by icons such as Mickey Mouse. He has often been defined asthe “Jeff Koons of fashion” because of his use of iconic Pop culture references. Madonna, Rihanna,Kanye West, Björk, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani, Agyness Deyn, Lady Gaga, Yelle and HayleyWilliams, to name but a few, are all great fans of his designs.
Karl Lagerfeld said in the newspaper Le Monde that he is the only designer who could ever takehis place at Chanel. Highly colourful iconic and humorous prints, together with bold use of colour,are his distinguishing mark. We are talking about the American designer Jeremy Scott, who haslaunched a collaboration with Swatch to create three truly special watches. Pop, curious, fun,outside the box, each watch of this limited edition is on sale at a price of 50 euro. There are threedifferent models: a white watch with Scott’s (detachable) iconic wings on the sides of the casing, awatch with a strap in the form of yellow lightning flash and a black watch with a baroque style goldframe (also detachable) surrounding the dial.
It’s difficult to think of a bow tie as an actual tie, but that’s what it is. It is essential that those wishing to wear this whimsical accessory know how to tie it perfectly by hand (if you wish to work for the royal household, you should know that Queen Elizabeth II is very particular over this detail and insists that bow ties are tied by hand).
For those who don’t know how to tie it, no problem: pre-tied bow ties exist, although to wear these you need a certain amount of audacity or irony; and so why not choose a Cor Sine Labe Doli ceramic bow tie, which combines practicality and innovation! On the other hand, if you don’t wish to give up on learning how to tie a perfect bow tie, you can watch this video and practice:
When you hear the word scarf, do you immediately think of someone sickly and feverish? Does the term pashmina send a shiver down your spine? Whatever your reaction, it probably has nothing to do with style, but with the clichés and obsolete trends that are often associated with this accessory. An accessory that has moved beyond mere functionality to become an essential touch of style and integral part of many men’s wardrobe. Whether patterned, minimal, essential, light, important or extra-long, a scarf (or pashmina) is capable of brightening up the most formal and classic, or even the dullest of outfits.
Whether for necessity or for whim, the scarf has truly moved beyond the limits of functionality to become almost essential even during summer months; while for winter wool and cashmere are the main fabrics used to produce scarves and pashminas, linen, cotton and ultra-light cashmere triumph in summer; silk, instead, is an all-rounder suitable for all seasons, but most suited to formal occasions and consequently in natural combination with the tie.
In less formal situations, however, scarves and pashminas sometimes replace the tie: then again, the scarf can be worn with everything and over everything, jackets, shirts, t-shirts and pullovers, and can even look good with bermuda sailing shorts. A touch of frivolity that can be left to flutter, for those who wish a more daring look, or knotted in false casual style. Provence flowers and paisley patterns with an ethnic look are strong this season; those who still haven’t decided whether to follow this aesthetic trend can choose a single colour, perhaps in a strong shade such as orange, octane blue (bearing in mind that this will be the main colour for next autumn and winter) or emerald green; tied around the neck with a simple knot, it brightens up even the most classic colours or you can choose one of the five ways of knotting your scarf, as shown in this video.
