NUMERO 00 FEEL NATURAL SS 2020

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 192 views

For Numero 00 Spring Summer 2020 Creative Director Valerio Farina explores the sensory journey of freedom, lightness, simplicity and natural elements to present this season’s collection. He wanted to portray a feeling of escapism from the stereotype of metropolis city life where he prefers a natural approach to living in favor of softness and purity which are reflected in the design of the garments distinguished by the light and fluid use of fabrics.

 

 

Organic pieces take centre stage to enhance fit and its silhouettes bringing them to life where the rich colour palettes influenced by nature and the five elements of the universe Ayurveda evoke water, air, fire and earth.

The designer hopes the sensory approach of returning to Mother Nature will inspire the wearer to connect emotionally with the pieces as an awakening of consciousness that connects them to the issues of an ideology for an eco sustainable world to make better informed choices.

 

Feel Natural, Freedom, Lightness are the destinations of the sensory journey, which has brought the designer Valerio Farina to the conceive of the collection for Numero 00 SS20

Looking closely at the collection these messages are embedded in the garments to feature conflicting artworks against the single use of plastic objects including the use of organic and recycled fabrics defining the feel natural theme of this collection.

 

 

 


The Colour palette used – blue celeste, rust colour, grey, white, sage green inspired from nature


 

 

 

I also noticed a trend of street wear dominating this seasons runway’s in Milan which was evident in the other collections presented during the men’s fashion week collections this summer.

 

 

 

 

 

The Designer exposes the desire of underdressing from the preconceptions and from the rules through garments distinguish themselves for the softness and purity

WHAT I WORE: IH NOM UH NIT PARIS SS 2020 FEATURING SPECIAL ARTIST PERFORMANCE BY SAINT JHN

By Posted on 0 Comments 1 min read 341 views

Just getting ready to enjoy the weekend and the weather is looks great here in Milan. Here’s just an overview of my party outfit essentials for summer time and ways I like to dress up my favourite signature leather jacket with the most minimal details can make all the difference. If you feel like ditching your tailored jacket for an alternative staple for easy weekend wears go with a less structured look that feels relaxed and comfortable on the go during Milan fashion week Men. It can work wonders and create a whole new look even with the most basic casual separates that you match with a signature item is all you need to complete an outfit. My outfit choice was ideal to attend the IH NOM UT NIT Paris Spring Summer 2020 Show with special guest Artist Performance from US Rapper Saint JHN for an intimate secret gig at Shambala in Milan. It was a great pleasure to attend the preview of the new collection by Creative Director Chaz Jourdan and be part of this special event. It was so worth it traveling all the way from London just to be here and experience Fashion Week in Milan.

WHAT I WORE: NUMERO 00 SS 2020 SHOW MILAN FASHION WEEK

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 1 min read 492 views

Hey guys, I’ve just arrived in Milan yesterday after I caught the last leg of the London Fashion Week Menswear collections and it was most certainly a good idea to escape the British Weather leaving behind the rain showers  to wake up in Sunny Milan today. I’m so excited to be here for Men’s Fashion Week starting with my first show of the week to get a sneak preview of the Numero 00 Spring Summer 2020 Menswear collection to kick off Camera Moda Milano Men’s Fashion Week in style.

Last season my friend Alex modeled in the show back in January so I was keen to check out their new collection while I was here in a Milan for a few days. For today’s look I opted for classic casual seperates given the fact it was at least 32 degrees in the sweltering heat, so a crisp white t-shirt and a pair of light weight denim jeans seemed the right choice. Not forgetting comfortable footwear that looks chic too. But, also remember 2 or three changes in between shows or event is seen as the norm during Fashion Week. I’m really looking forward to tomorrows show’s and catch a bit of sightseeing in between, so I’ll see you there!

PSYCHEDELIC SIXTIES AND BOHO CHIC MAKES DEBUT AT BEN SHERMAN SS 18

By Posted on 1 Comment 2 min read 61 views

Ben Sherman SS 2018 from Feed My Fashion Ego on Vimeo.

Ben Sherman

Ben Sherman presents their latest collection a peacock revolution for Spring Summer 2018 which takes inspiration from the psychedelic sixties. It reflected a time during an era where it was all about flamboyance and extravagance of Peacocks allowing men to pioneer a distinct and colourful dress sense.

Menswear pieces in the collection embrace the effortless style of Ben Sherman’s heritage re-visiting a passion for music and iconic sixties music festival posters. Summer is already underway and I cannot help feel inspired by the looks coming down the catwalk as I witnessed rich pattern floral, vintage, and spring floral art patterns adorn garments.

Retro looks form the essence of the sixties psychedelic peacock inspiration combining a contemporary twist to tailoring including deconstructed summer blazers, soft linen separates worn with printed shorts. Key directional pieces of the collection such as suede jackets, hooded parka, relaxed drawstring trousers and gingham shirts looked great in shades of dark denim, claret red and soft pinks.

A fresh summer palette saw traditional patterns revived for spring summer 2018 in indigo, denim for outerwear, bolder hues of brick and tan teamed with classic stripes and checks. While burnt sienna and pineapple on jerseys and shirting looked vibrant as contemporary silhouettes brought to life this season’s psychedelic inspiration injecting a bohemian spirit into the collection.

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD HEADLINES FASHION WEEK WITH REBELLIOUS RUNWAY SHOW SS 18 LFW MENS

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 53 views

Vivienne Westwood SS 2018 from Feed My Fashion Ego on Vimeo.

It’s Day 4 of LFW Men’s it seems some designers went all out with bang to impress the international press and VIP’s as the show in usual fashion was delayed by 30 mins. Vivienne Westwood’s rebellious runway show caused quite the controversy during London Fashion Week Men’s and it was quite the spectacle indeed which caught guest by surprise. I had an early start to the morning so the show certainly grasped my attention with a spectacular performance by Circus Artist intertwined with the catwalk show. Models saunter down the runway with faces full of makeup which will express each of the 4 symbols inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s collection ‘We are MotherFucker’.

These are symbols are aptly named Love, Free World & IOU, Greed Rot $ Propaganda, War and Giants like Shell and Monsanto who rape the Earth. Clearly there was no fashion theme but a political message to win the fight for the free world to save the earth was evident. All four symbols appear as prints which adorn garments from rainforest print and other graphics in the form of text. The noughts you see could be mistaken for spotty animal prints but infact its money which multiplies them by 10 or more needed to safe the rainforest.

It was wonderful to see something else different for a change and the spring summer 2018 collection exceeded my expectations from your usual conventional fashion show. The most important message of them all ‘Buy Less Choose Well, Make it Last’ for a greener planet. We just loved it.

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 51 views

Topman Design

Topman Design kicked off London Fashion Week Men’s in style with an Exhibition Event followed by a party to celebrate SS 2018 with Special live performance by The Rhythm Method in London’s East End.

Transition the exhibition presented by Topman Design which featured 5 collaborators, 5 films and an amazing preview presentation of Spring Summer 2018. These include works exhibited by Nick Offord, Max Wallis amongst a few others to celebrate the 5 year anniversary at London Fashion Week Men’s.

The inspiration behind the collections aesthetics is ‘Modern Romantics’ presented with a unique flair for fashion spirit and carefree attitude of the wearer. Topman’s signature design concept is brought to life by referencing the past in order to influence the future was the theme for this seasons collection. It was evident the 80’s was paving it’s way for a comeback as I observed the way Topman Design styled their collection which including separates such as cropped jackets, lux sportswear, tailoring and loose fitting silhouettes on high waisted trousers looked retro chic.

Belstaff

Following on from Belstaff’s collaboration with Vestiaire Collective the leading market place for pre-owned premium and luxury fashion the exclusive partnership allows you to purchase the limited number of iconic 1960’s and 1970’vintage jackets especially chosen from the Belstaff Designers Archive. Once again Belstaff returns this season to London Fashion Week Men’s for Spring Summer 2018 Menswear and Womenswear collection Paris to Dakar.

Belstaff showcased the collections in the iconic London Venue of Somerset House, in the newly opened wing, the Lancaster Rooms, with press arriving via the British landmark of Waterloo Bridge. This season’s collection explores the epic journey of the rider’s adventures travelling through extreme conditions during their journey on the Paris to Dakar Rally.

Influences of retro themes made their debut during men’s fashion week at other designer shows as Belstaff took inspiration from the late 70’s and early 80’s era mixing modern performance fabrics with retro sports graphics and prints.

The real sense of rawness in the feeling of the collection could be envisioned where romance of the North African landscapes intriguing colour hues of soft sun bleached pastels, to the vibrant shades of copper and burnt orange evoked the spirit of adventure. It was about creating pieces this season that were versatile in aesthetics also light weight incorporating technical styles which are protective and wearable in all climates.

A rather distinct collection was well put together where patterns and prints contrast with retro inspired sportswear elevated the multi seasonal technical use of luxurious materials and bold prints served with functionality. As per seasonal signature items you can guarantee the outwear remains at the core of the collection each season experimenting with colour, leather, graphic and prints and more.

ASOS MENSWEAR SUMMER PARTY

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 142 views

It’s been quite a long afternoon of shows today but the best news is the Sun is still shinning as we leave the Ben Sherman show and decide to head over next to the ASOS Menswear Presentation at the AQUA London Rooftop. It’s got a really great terrace on the roof and it was just the perfect setting to view their latest Spring Summer 2018 collection.

ASOS is one of my first port of call for online shopping if I’m looking for a seasonable trend piece to mix and match with outfits and great for weekend basics too. At the Spring Summer 2018 preview I noticed that there were on trend retro pieces being re-worked from the 90’s .Who could forget those cross over bags or I believe the correct or old term was referred to as a ‘Bumbag’.  Accessories such as classic white sunglasses always remind me of summer or Nineteen 50’s Hollywood which I think I’ve got a pair quite similar are just perfect for sunny days at the pool.

I think these would go nicely with one of the racer checker printed bags as I’m keen to have a browse while I’m here. You know I just can’t help myself to window shop. Anyway, perhaps there is something I could get for my upcoming press trip to Portugal as most of the influencers I know will be going. But more on that later, so be sure to check for updates on the blog about my travels this summer it’s going to be supper fun.

That feeling of summer to me always evokes that spark of hedonism and adventure and these pieces from the ASOS Menswear line are ideal for headlining this summer’s music festivals in style or holidays you need on trend pieces of clothing to make things more fun don’t you think. From the looks of the colour palate the clothes really stood out for me as striking, youthful, fun and vibrant in neon shade’s which is very nineties right now.

I’m just hoping that someone has a ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air themed Party’ because I quite like the idea getting my hands on some new statement pieces before my holiday vacation commences.  All I need to do now is choose what I want for my forthcoming trip and just pack. I guess, I’ll see you guys by the pool!

There are so many designers and styles to choose from and lucky for us London is the number one international shopping destination in world so we are spoilt for choice.

Oliver Spencer

Oliver Spencer returns to the catwalk this season for Spring Summer 2018 with an exclusive T-shirt collaboration with Artist David Austin where the key message is to explore the themes of love often through text which is inspired through literature such as ancient myth to contemporary poetry. Both Art, Fashion and illustration is combined where Oliver Spencer and David Austin designed logo T-shirts include ‘LOVE TOWN’, ‘WOMEN AND MEN’ and ‘FACE’.

Spencer manages to capture the vibrant spirit of London’s cosmopolitan city that reflects diversity and versatility of its inhabitants. For instance the signature light weight oversized parker coats transform from a coat to rucksack for when the weather is pleasant. Summer is already upon us so it’s ideal to invest in versatile ergonomic designed pieces that can adapt to suit our hectic lifestyle.

The colour hues of warm pink, cool blues are emphasized by contrasting stripes and checks which are coherent throughout the whole collection. Fabrics are textured with a handmade artisan feel where prints play an integral part this season.

John Smedely the world’s finest knitwear brand introduces Spring Summer 2018 collection Precision / Fluidity presents its inaugural catwalk show at London Fashion Week Men’s.  The new collection draws inspiration from first and new design concepts but still staying true at heart to the brands heritage. I noticed this season designers are focussing on the elements of versatility in their clothing to adapt with busy lifestyles is practical yet personifies the relatable everyday way of getting dressed.

The main theme of the collection fluidity is explored this season and taken from John Smedley’s archive during the 1930’s following his first visit to Japan. Prints adorn garments inspired by Asian influences derived from the watercolours of the Japanese Koi is a juxtaposition in the fluidity within the collection.

Bold silk prints and embroidery were present within the garments as the Japanese influence continues to inspire womenswear silhouettes as kimono style fastenings and pleat details create intriguing elegant movement for each piece.

For Menswear clothing appeared to be well structured and precise including suits tailored for a sharp finish to showcase a sense of sartorial elegance including careful thought into the choice of materials including extra fine merino wool and wild silk lining printed with the emblem of the season. The brands Jermyn Street Store also, celebrate its one year anniversary on the day of the catwalk.

It was also the brands first foray to join the digital retail innovation of social media apps category See Now, Buy Now where consumers can purchase limited editions items such as newly introduced silk scarves and t-shirts available at both London stores.
