Tim Coppens Fall 2012: Sport Couture

If the first few Fall 2012 collection showings are any indication, colorblocking and texture will be the big trend storis to come out of this season. Last night, Belgian menswear designer Tim Coppens, winner of the Ecco Domani Fashion Fund Award, presented strong plays on both trends.

The fingerless, handless colorblocked gloves at Tim Coppens

 

Fingerless and handless gloves composed of contrasting colors punctuated crisp white shirts, creamy embossed knits, chocolate fur bombers, supple black leather Members Only style jackets, and camel anoraks blocked with cashmere sleeves. In sum, it was sport couture at its best. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing the militaristic colorblocked vest and chocolate bomber hit the streets next fall.

2011 was the Year of the Bowtie

This was the year men’s dandy style got a New York Times feature, and just about every dude at the men’s shows wore a bowtie. Bowties were everywhere from necks to shoes. Click through the slideshow below for a look at our faves including Larry the Downing Street cat’s Royal Wedding-inspired look.

Watch the Throne Recap: Three Costume Changes for Kanye; Jay-Z Did the Wop in a Leather-Sleeved Hoodie

Kanye West wore an embellished cardigan, necklaces, leather skirt & leggings Watch the Throne
Kanye West made three costume changes during his Watch the Throne concert on 11/5/11 at the Izod Center.

 

Jay-Z and Kanye West killed it at the Izod Center this past Saturday night! Even without an opening act (yes, we sat there from 7:30-9:00p listening to the faint sounds of classics the pair have sampled for their recent hits), and no special guests (no Nicki Minaj when they performed “Monster”, no Alicia Keys when Jay-Z did “Empire State of Mind”), the pair set the stage on fire. Literally.

 

There were pyro technics; and montages of leopards in the wild, barking dogs, and sharks as the pair played seamlessly off each other. There was no jockeying for position. Jigga and Yeezy would perform together, then one would quietly exit the stage for the other to perform a few solos, before reuniting, sometimes making the segue with chuckle-inducing banter.

 

“I remember watching you doing all that big pimping in the videos [sic],” Kanye reminisced after Jay-Z performed his hit. “I wanted to spend that cheese too, not knowing it would get me…” Cue Kanye’s banger, “Golddigger.”

 

Of course, the fashion was off the chain too.

 

Jay-Z switched up his look with a leather-blocked hoodie, Yankees caps, and red sneakers, while Kanye made three costume changes. He opened with a star-spangled black tee, later changed into a sporty blazer, and ended the night with an embellished cardigan, chains, a graphic tee that fell below his hips, a leather skirt, leather leggings, and kicks.

 

In the end, after an encore (an opportunity for Jay to perform “Encore”), Jay-Z bid the crowd a “safe” adieu. A fun night!

Original Penguin’s Black Leather & Plaid Hi-top Sneakers: Fly or ‘Bye?


I can totally get with the preppy, sporty take on these Original Penguin black leather trim plaid ‘Moby’ hi-top sneakers.
I can seem them being popular with both the uptown dude who prefers them with roomy black jeans or a downtown guy who would match them up with a vintage tweed blazer.

Fellas, Do You Still Actually Wear A Watch?


Personally, I think the last time that I actually bothered to wear a watch was in the late 90s. Seriously. With the popular growth of so many digital, time telling devices, it almost seems unnecessary to indulge in fine, functional, elegant accessories like this Longines silver ‘Dolce Vita’ chronograph watch.
Though with the gifted craftsmanship it boasts, one may have to reconsider.
