Okunoren, the brothers well recognised brand, has since set high standards on the direction menswear should take by providing supreme quality in presentation and product. Over 12 years later, the brand continues to hold the number 1 spot as the top menswear brand in Africa with a clientele base of celebrities and business magnates.
People seem to get pretty angry about clothes. Did you know there are whole threads on online forums about people's irrational hatred of certain trends? If you're ever feeling miserable, a quick read through these is guaranteed to make you laugh. My favourite mini rants are documented here under 'People wear things and I don't like them'.
I am *so* excited about this. American Eagle Outfitters, heralded as 'America's favourite jeans brand' is opening its first UK outlets this month, starting this weekend with the launch of its flagship store at Westfield White City with brand ambassador and model, Daisy Lowe.
They may use generic computer generated images of what style you should don, but just knowing that you'll need a light jacket with a scarf, brings you one step closer to answering the daily question of "WHAT SHALL I WEAR TODAY?"
The jewellery consists of gold and silver plated pendants and earrings in the shape of a woman in a foetal position, with her head in her hands. Azagury-Partridge, in an interview with the Independent, has suggested that this image is meant to represent "female empowerment". The image of a woman in a foetal position is anything but empowerment.
As the iconic French designer Yves Saint Laurent once said, 'Fashion fades, style endures...' His words couldn't be more true and should be applied not only to ever day fashion, but bridal fashion too.
Looking at this woman from any other perspective - from outside the strict, bizarre world of fashion - Myla Dalbesio isn't "plus-size". She is MODEL SIZE. Angular in places, soft in others, but with semi-protruding ribs and minimal body fat. She is stunning to look at, obviously. She's a beauty. But 'plus-size'? No.
These three adult brands - Black Score, Jack Spade and Kate Spade New York (the latter two thanks to a new collaboration with GAP KIDS) - do brilliant clothing for children that means those of you who like to mini me with your kids can do so without looking weird. Well. Less weird, anyway.
If you look after your jeans, they should be a great investment purchase and last for years. If you wash them as per the care instructions the shape should bounce back each time. If they do start to rip and distress through wear and tear, remember you can always have them patched as a simple denim alteration.
The watch has become a quintessential item of style and functionality. A popular article of dress, antique and rare watches have come to be considered as collectible items of jewellery, for their ornamental value rather than just for their time-keeping function.
There is a difference between a shapely bottom and a big bum. Back in the day, women used to ask "Does my bum look big in this?" If it did, they would scream and change outfit. Fast forward years later, when the same question is asked, we want the person being asked to respond, "Yes it does, and it looks fabulous darling."
If a model, UK size 10 is considered a plus-sized figure, then there's literally no hope for the majority of women in Britain as the average clothes size for a UK woman is a 16! Oh no, what unattractive monsters we must all be!
I've always loved London. I feel it's time to reconnect with its culture and the people. And see my audience again after all this time. Personally, I think London has evolved more than most European cities, it's really one of, if not the most dynamic cities in the world.
I rock a pair of Nike Air Max, people tell me it's good I'm going to the gym. I wear a quilted skirt, people ask why I'm wearing half a sleeping bag. I buy a vintage jacket and people sing 'Climb Every Mountain' because apparently I look like I'm wearing the Sound of Music curtain outfit (the most offensive thing there being the weak song choice, of course).
You walk into Topshop and this mannequin is the first thing you see - the ONLY representation of the female body throughout the store. Do you think, 'I'm thin but I'm not that thin - is this how I should look like?' Possibly, yes.
The whole argument for and against immigration is way too complex for any one person to discuss in a single article but there is one area that I haven't heard people talk about in the debate and that's the creative industries.
