Sony/Meg artist Que Williams is back"


There is a noticeable difference between today’s R&B and the music of the past. Once upon a time, great vocalists like Michael, Gerald, Luther and Keith had passion in their music. They had romance. The music made love. I ran across Sony/MEG artist Que Williams and I haven't looked back since. Bringing a new flavor to R & B, Que adds in neo-soul, trap and eclectic tunes to his music. ...

Africa Fashion Week

 

After waiting for years, the first ever Fashion Week Africa took place this past week. The new home for fabulous designers and eager models which ended on Sunday, took on a life of its own. Each show possessed so much grace, and edge that was missing in all of the other fashion week shows. The rich heritage and emotion showed through each garment, as if it were telling a story. The men’s wear collection which could be worn anywhere in The States and be nothing short of GQ and lookbook all mashed together to help make cohesive and awe- inspiring shows.

 

Fashion organizers are even trying to solidify the city of Lagos as the fifth fashion capital of the world, standing next to Milan, London, New York, and Paris. Rihanna’s rumored beau Dudley O’Shaughnessy as well as Alek Wek took part in walking in what is now history.

 

Bold fashion statements were made, as well as risk takers. Some designers strayed away from the obvious and what can seem to some as cliché tribal prints, while some embraced it and created art through the culture of it all. Either way the fact that the spotlight is shining on African designers in what is often called a “white industry” is nothing short of brilliant, redefining fashion and rewriting history.

Front Row Reviews: Kanye West Fall/Winter R-T-W Collection 2012

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Front Row Reviews: Kanye West Fall/Winter R-T-W Collection 2012

With stellar reviews of Kanye West’s last collection seemed to only motivate the Producer/Rapper/Designer to come harder with a second collection. Returning to the stage Kanye offered extraordinary design aesthetics that seemed to be a little unexpected by many critics. Some even say that his designs were “Givenchy-inspired”, but I feel in fashion—all great minds think alike and in West’s defense there’s no secret that he isn’t a big lover of fur and leather. So why not have a collection inspired by what you love most? Just like any other designer, one has to build their brand one collection at a time and Kanye’s is proving that he’s here to come and conquer the fashion game. Game-changer? I think so!

In recap of his show, West incorporated (my favorite fashion term) leather, lamb fur and knee-high boots into this collection to prove to his critics that he is too a Womenswear Designer and he also knows what girls like—and I like!  Saying to a room full of editors, “I got treated unfairly by the press last time. Why would I want to do this?” ,quoted by Kanye after deciding to cancel his pre-show collection preview. I say to West, “when the critics speak inspire to unleash more exquisite pieces!”  Bring more crocodile textiles, more fur (faux or real) and definitely more leather—anything that keep us stylishly-relevant we “true style-seekers” appreciates it dearly and we welcome that you continue to do so!

Kanye is only giving the fashion industry what it’s missing and that’s—edge! He’s keeping the critics talking and entwined in his twisted fantasy of what’s to come!

Down below are pieces of his collection? Do you feel Kanye has a future as Womenswear designer? Let’s just watch…but here’s a few pieces for you to indulge in!

 Zoooooooooommmm………as the go-carts ride by!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Spring/Summer Trends for Men

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on Spring/Summer Trends for Men

Fellas dont be scared to put a few neons in your closets this spring. Colors were strong at the spring shows one year ago (the clothes that are in store now) but this time, hues that were once accents oranges, greens and mustard — could become the focus of whole collections.

Make sure you have your all white covered as well. The all white parties will be right around the corner once spring hits. Make sure you wear all white where it is appropriate.

Stripe shorts should be replaced with your jean shorts this summer. Always Try something new and more trendy. When pairing the shorts make sure you look great below the belt was a pair of bright chinos. This upcoming season, swap those for shorts that have been updated in an array of stripes, patchworks and see how it can fit inside your wardrobe.

A Girl’s Guide To Trends: Point In Peplum

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on A Girl’s Guide To Trends: Point In Peplum

New fashion always gives us more life. It’s like our bodies builds more metabolism when a new trend is mentioned (the feeling of a true fashionista/fashionisto). Pre-Fall collections recently previewed at NYFW have been more appealing than ever before. Designers are now using their natural instincts and starting again to emphasize more on personal inspiration—getting back to their roots. This truly pleases me!

Fashion houses are getting back to the age were fashion was daring and intriguing—my Point Is In Peplum; a modern trend. When peplum comes to mind in a sense it reminds me of my great-aunts’ favorite fashion staple, but within a second thought, thinking beyond the box, it reminds me of all things chic. I think form and function; a trend that deserves a second life.

Peplum, with it’s retro ancestry, is one of our more sensible-romantic trends—with it’s most recognizable form. Subtle and sweet, this trend luckily plays nice for any body form and is very flattering. In the state of being flattering, peplum is the seasons’ most favorite in trending; fashion is becoming personal. There maybe just a little doubt among some whether peplum will be a fashion hit or miss—will it be? I think with fashion houses having everything to do with this comeback it has staying power!!

 

 

 

The Sartorialist | Lunch for 25 Video

Posted on by Icy Twan in LATEST | Comments Off on The Sartorialist | Lunch for 25 Video

 

Earlier this month, Scott Schuman, most notably known as The Sartorialist, hosted a lunch at a small Trattoria in Florence. The setting was simple yet timeless, perfectly in line with the gentlemen that would be on hand. This would also be the set for the first video from a man that’s known for his effortless stills. The Inaugural Sartorialist Lunch took place during Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy and will be a biannual event moving forward. Here’s how it all came to be:

About a year ago, Scott and I were sitting at a small Trattoria in Florence. The place looked amazing– not only the simple and traditional decor, but also the irreproducible Italian atmosphere and overall elegance of the gentlemen.

“Doesn’t this place look like the best fashion story ever?” I asked Scott.

“Yes!” He said, “Real, cool, diverse– It’s like if all the best dressed guys I know got together for lunch….. We should just do that! Get my favorite guys together in one room, it would be so much fun. These guys have so much in common and yet, for most of them, their paths never cross. Just imagine, someone like Gianluca, with his dreadlocks and modern-minimalist aesthetic sitting next to Lino, with his old-school Italian charm…. Mr. Kurino and Simone Righi discussing their first suit, Kanye and Terron talking about whatever it is those two super funny characters could dream up… I’m just guessing, but I bet these guys would really hit it off. What a great way to forge new friendships.”

“Scott… You should do it!!!” the idea sounded fantastic to me.

And that’s what Scott did. I can tell you, I was so jealous not to be in Florence for The Inaugural Sartorialist Lunch. But, here are a few photographs and a video to let you share the first of what we hope will become a biannual event that grows every year through a continually increasing diversity of style and deepening camaraderie between friends.
