On Hillary Clinton:
“Let me tell you why Hillary’s going to win. Everywhere you go in this country, you have red and blue. You got the Democrats; you got the Republicans. You got the Bloods; you got the Crips. You know what else is red and blue? Blood. Blood is blue in your body until air hits it, and then it turns red. That means there’s unity. There’s gonna be unity. So when you think about a night where there’s late-night talk-show hosts and it’s mostly women, that’s a different world. Right? A world where 75 percent of the prime ministers and the presidents were women: that’s a different world. That’s gonna happen, and it’s gonna happen when Hillary wins. Because you know what? No matter how staunch of a supporter you are of no-abortion, whatever you are: you’re a woman, and there’s no way in the world you’re going to vote for somebody that’s going to try to tell you what to do with your body. Hillary’s gonna win. Listen, I’m reaching out to her right now. She’s gonna win.”

On the Tea Party:
“The Tea Party guys? The guys with the n***er jokes in 2014? They’re all trying to learn how to do the Dougie. Please. While their daughters are all twerking. Trust me: Miley tells me all the time. Not saying that about Billy Ray, but I’m saying Miley tells me all the time: all those little girls, all those girls with their Republican daddies, they’re twerkin’ somewhere listening to Jay Z and Beyoncé and doin’ the ‘Happy’ dance. And that’s black.”

In the article, Rita gushes over supermodel Naomi Campbell who so generously looked after her at the Philipp Plein Fall 2014 show in Milan: “Yeah, me and Naomi Campbell are like best friends… No, I’m joking. She’s so cute. She was looking after me at the [Philipp Plein] show. I was really nervous because I felt fat — everyone was so skinny and tall. So she gave me a pep talk and walked me in. Then we ended up having drinks by the bar and she was being really cool.” What we’d all give for a little face-to-face time with Queen Naomi. (Paper)

Men’s SS14 Fashion Trend: Colour Segmentation

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Men’s SS14 Fashion Trend: Colour Segmentation

The first signs of sunshine are barbeques, block parties and the beach! Fellas our summer wardrobes shave to be right.

After slogging our way through a long winter layered up in thick knits and outerwear, we’ve more than earned the right to don brighter colours and lighter garments. Which is why we’re excited to try out one of the trends we spotted at London Collections: Men SS14 – colour segmentation.

From block-colour separates to pieces with multi-coloured sections and details, segmented colour is a great way to inject some freshness and excitement into your look this season.

So whether you want to make a statement or are looking for a more refined approach to the trend, we’ve got it covered…

On The Runway

Colour segmentation could be seen everywhere at London Collections, where models acted as canvases for bold and eye-popping art. This vibrant display of block-hues and segmented pieces was enough to make any man with enough confidence want to give it a go.

E. Tautz mixed bright shades with darker colours to create a real impact, although it was the red and green segmented coloured tee constructed from hi-shine fabric that really stole the show. We loved how it was paired with a traditional hat – the perfect mix of contemporary and classic:

As usual, Christopher Shannon took a more daring approach with toxic fluorescent hues making up outfits of a single colour.

Although we’re not ready to advocate wearing these pieces on the high street just yet, it definitely made for an interesting visual showcase:

Elsewhere, Agi & Sam layered tonal hues together for a far more wearable approach to the trend.

We particularly loved the segmented coat in a grey/orange mix. However, it might have been better suited for everyday use if the colours were reversed and the sleeves were slightly more fitted:

Get The Look

It’s important to remember that the high fashion runways are designed to be dramatic and offer the most extreme version of any trend. By the time similar pieces reach the high street they have often been diluted and are far more wearable.

With this in mind, here’s how we recommend creating your own take for SS14…

1. Bright & Bold

There’s no getting around it. If you want to attempt this look, you need to have confidence. In comparison to the way the opposite sex looks at clothing, we guys seem to have some sort of macho opinion of the way we can wear colour, if we choose to wear it at all.

We’re often far more inclined to fill our wardrobes with greys and monochrome hues than citrus orange or seafoam green – the blue spectrum and richer shades of brown/burgundy being the exceptions.

We need to start by scrapping this outdated intimidation of bright colours and welcome them into our personal style. A guy can look just as masculine in fluro yellow or pastel purple, it’s all about the way he wears it. After all, once you’ve mastered segmented colour, everything else is child’s play.

Below you will find some examples of bold colour-blocking and segmentation to get you inspired. Keep in mind your colour wheel, stick to two (three max) solid pieces that complement or coordinate with each other and then experiment:

SS14 Trend: Floral

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on SS14 Trend: Floral

 

Whenever I think of floral shirts, the first image that enters my head is A$AP Rocky.  It is not just the obvious connotations of the song title that resonates with me, nor the Givenchy shirt he is wearing but something deeper lures me in to the mystic of floral shirts other than the waves or sun drenched beaches of some far-flung exotic island with beautiful women.

Floral patterns often get a raw deal when it comes to fashion but over the past few seasons they have managed to distance themselves from the image of overweight car salesman and instead have made their way (minus the flowers around the neck) onto catwalks and high streets where there is not a jot of sun, sand or sea to be seen.
