Models-on-the-rise Daan van der Deen and Filip Hrivnak bring energy, style and a sexy charisma to the bold and dashing  Versace Menswear campaign for Fall/Winter 2014/15, lensed by  dynamic fashion photography duo Mert & Marcus, with styling by  David Bradshaw, hair by Garren, makeup by Lucia Pieron and art direction by Giovanni Bianco.The collection’s theme of  the ‘Wild West’ ( leather chaps worn over  Versace signature-patterned underwear) meets futuristic-biker (studded leather biker-jackets accessorised with ornate quilted crash-helmets)  fuels an always overtly-stylised sartorial Versace-dream with particular verve and distinction on this occasion.

The new Etro Fall/Winter campaign for 2014/15 Look Book not only celebrates the label’s flamboyant sartorial style, but more pertinently the unique skills and workmanship of its tailors/designers in the model room who make these visions of sartorial excellence come to life.Models Alfred Kovac, Tom Heukels and Anthony Thornburg bring their presence and charisma to the proceedings.

TOM FORD MENSWEAR RTW FALL-WINTER 2014/15

Written by  on August 9, 2014

Tom Ford1

Tom Ford’s Fall-Winter RTW Menswear may feature a more casual/sportive silhouette /influence than in previous seasons, but the die-hard sartorial glamour for which he is known and created his brand from is still very much to the fore.Cold-weather outerwear highlighted with extravagant fur confirm my observation/assessment, and last, but  not least the strikingly dandy/dapper evening tux’s – as full of flash and bravado as ever!

Looking awesomely buff and every bit the epitome of the Versace-man, actor Nolan Gerard Funk (he of ‘Glee’ & ‘Awkward’ fame) sets pulses and senses  afire with this stunning set of stills for Versace’s Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear campaign.Personally picked by Donatella Versace, he is to the Versace menswear line what Lady Ga Ga is to the womens.Versace truly know how to market their brand (whilst heating the market up at the same time) with the hottest designs, concepts, styling and yes – Celebrities.This time round, they’ve set the internet (not to mention a large segment of gay men) afire with Nolan’s blazingly-hot turn as a mannequin!

Thierry Mugler’s autumn/winter collection for 2013/14  “ aligns : triangulation, neo-urban panache, electric futurism”.The extremely stylised, classic, geometric-styled tailoring which has always been Mugler’s handwriting is very much in evidence, combined with a monochrome and electric colour palette with an added touch of para-military detail.
