Style Trend for men 2013

I've been looking at the runway shows in these days and browsing trough the designers. There is a lot going on for the men summer 2013. The style that's most visible of all the styles is the short-suits, almost all the designers have their version of a elegant suits with shorts instead of long pants.
So in very "short" version the fashion for next summer is Very elegant with shirts, tie, blazers and shorts. I'm personally not going crazy for this trend but well it´s still good to be elegant in the heat and good for those who work in offices, on the other hand to mix the summer shorts in a suit it's maybe practical but often ends up to be not so cool just Geeky!!
Here are some examples of this style from some of the greatest designers:

DIESEL - Casual "hunting" suit
Dolce & Gabbana
Giorgio Armani - Very cool style
Nicole Farhi - "Little boys" suit
Raf Simons - Elegant and stylish
Costume National - Casual and Cool
Les Hommes - "Intellectual British horseman" style
Mugler - Showing a bit much flesh
Versace - Sporty and Casual elegance
Vivienne Westwood - Strangely boring for this brand
This is it for this trend.. it's for sure going to be a big hit for next year :)

Ed Westwick on the runway for Philipp Plein

The heatwave here in Italy has making me too lazy to blog.. But now finally is my favorite time of fashion because the men fashion week is in the run :) For me the fashion for men is always a little bit more interesting then the for women, maybe because they don't "over-do-it" as much .
I was watching the SS 2013 from Philipp Plein and I have to say it took me by a surprise, not just because the "bad boy" Ed Westwick was modeling (he actually fitted perfectly on the catwalk) but the combination of skateboard street style mixed with elegance turned out great! I'm honestly quite bored with the turquoises short suits that I've been seeing on the runways this season.

His collection was very fresh; leather sneakers with stretched jeans, very elegant and gorgeous blazers, skateboards and scarfs, leather jackets and shorts, and guys with tattoos and chains... It was a perfect display of a "bad boy" wardrobe    

Here are some of my favorite from Philipp Plein: 

 Have a wonderful evening, I'm now preparing myself for the match tonight Italy/Germany so no more fashion for me today!!

Reconstructed jewelry trend

I've been putting myself in pain by watching reconstructed jewelry online.. I love everything that is different and that makes you stand out and be different, like my phrase should be much more is perfect :) A few months ago I came across a brand called Trillery and they just make these wonderful jewelry pieces that I want to share with you here. Body armors, halos, slave bracelets are few of the unique design they make. Here are some of their work and I recommend that you check out this brand!
I think it´s my second blog I make about them but it's totally worth it:

Now it's time for bed.. more internet research tomorrow :)

Pregnant man & some leather

Well everything exist in the world of fashion but the one man that can shock the most is with out any doubt Steven Klein. His new editorial "Baby Boom"  for Candy Magazine is no different, he manage to make gay sadomasochism pregnant men very sensual and sexy!! Klein likes to provoke and make a message with his photos and I think this editorial is just wonderfully cute in a weird way :)  so enjoy half naked and naked men with leather and a baby one the way!

Have a nice weekend..

Artistic and colorful shoes

I have to say that I really admire the work that they do at KronKron. To be a designer from a small country like Iceland is hard but they are also doing so unique and different design that makes it's much more "risky". The shoes are in strange shapes and combine so many colors, and all these little details that they add to the shoes are just perfect. I'm really rooting for this brand and I hope they will get the attention that they deserve. I'm so in love with their shoe collection spring/summer 2012..

Here are some of their creations:

Creative directors Hugrún Árnadóttir and Magni Þorsteinsson

Shoes from their collection:

If you like colorful and playful things I really recommend that you check out also their clothing line!

Animals with tattoos - Trend!

Over the years I've become a huge fan of documentaries and shows about how it's made.. and now a days DMAX is one of my favorite channel. I saw some very interesting episode the other day about pet owners that Tattoos their animals and it's getting more and more popular to do so. In most cases people do it for for the reason to "label" their animals (if they get lost)..

I knew that people did this for identification  but there is a bigger group that do it for the sake of fashion and design and basically on all animals.. fishes, pigs, cats.. you name it!
Well is it fashion or not? Animal Rights groups think this is the most horrible thing ever (they clearly haven't seen the animal shelter here in Italy) and also many other pet owners have the opinion that it's horrible because the animals have no say in it, I understand that logic but the animals have no saying in anything they are put trough not even when they snobb snobb the balls ouch! Tattoo artists say against it that the animals are under anesthetic and feel no pain while they make the tattoo and the animals are recognizable if they get lost.
So I clean my soul, I'm writing this from the fashion point of view: people can judge for themselves. I still wouldn't mind to have one arty pig like that in my living room :)

Louise the pig  tattoos by Wim Delvoye

custom made fishes from New York

The tattoos are mostly done on bald cats, dogs and pigs.. against it or not this is getting more and more popular.

Have a good day,

Armani: New pet?

I live in a big Palazzo here in Italy close to the center of Milano, and it's not very pet friendly situation that I'm in... My Italian neighbors complain about the kids in the building so I'm not sure what would happen if I would show up with a pug, a ferret or some other furry little creature.. but there is a solution because the new Armani bag is like a little fur-y animal in a  leach
So fashion is also a solution in a difficult situations:

Invisible shoes

After one year I'm still so in love with these shoes from the invisible line by Andreia Chaves. This Brazilian designer that graduated here from Italy made this great invention and got the award "most creative" shoes at Mittlemoda. These shoes were made in limited edition as they are handmade with combination of leather  technique and some kind of 3D print technology. I would give much to get my hands on a pair of the invisible shoes!


Liam Gallagher with eye wear collection

It's pretty much: everything goes these days in fashion.. Liam Gallagher has made a new collection of sunglasses for his label Pretty Green. They actually look very stylish and the price is quite reasonable prices. My obsession in fashion has always been glasses and sunglasses, I even remember when I was a young girl I was always trying to poke my eyes so one day i needed to get glasses! Well fortunately for me that didn't work so I just use glasses with out a glass and I see perfectly..but a child needs to have dreams!

Here are some samples from his collection:

Hope you have sunny day where ever you are, at least the  sun shining here in Italy :)
