I’d just turned off my television to the right, when I had a look at the young gentleman to the left, and noticed the beautiful, flourished, South African print on his tie. This made me think of how we today also have a lot of floral print on our clothes whether its shoes, shirts, pants or even hats. This triggered a lot of thoughts in my head:
I remember watching Sam Lambert and Shaka Maidoh in a video on MrPorter.com,
explaining about the suit, and how a printed tie can make your everyday suit seem more fresh and different.
It also made me think about an inspiring article from The Guardian called: “Vintage Africa: Meeting Namibia’s hipsters”.
The Guardian is talking with Loux the Vintage Guru from Namibia about the different kinds of styles and prints you can come across in Africa:
So.. Do you know how you sometimes think about a certain clothing piece, and you wish you could somehow change it, and maybe even modernize it?
I remember I read a quote from Karl Lagerfeld the other day that said: “If you were to ask me what I wish I had invented in fashion, it would be the white shirt.”
Now designer of POCKZ, Jens Tønnesen, has recreated the timeless sock we all wear everyday into a gentlemanish and beautiful design.
At first hand it reminds you of the classic polo shirt, as the top part of the sock is knitted in the classic piqué.
This is a great alternative for your all day everyday normal socks, as POCKZ can give you the twist your outfit needs!
POCKZ will soon be available in Herrernes Magasin – Like POCKZ on Facebook for more information about the release:(https://www.facebook.com/pages/POCKZ/206119652911848?fref=ts)
These 2 (there were actually 3) groomed barbers lived on the same hotel as I did, and I was pretty sure they had something to do with the fashion week based on the way they dressed. Vintage waistcoats, brogues and pinstriped pants. They were art themselves. As you can see above they had an exhibition which was open for everyone too see. This really gave alot of attention to the fair, which in my opinion is a great way to show what you’re capable of!
As I mentioned earlier, details are one of the main reasons why most of us fall in love with the product, because that tiny detail often defines what the designer had in mind to create. This danish short-film shows exactly what many people love: Details.
One of the things in this video that I think is awesome, is the fact that they dont show us details in clothes, they’re showing us details of the wall, woman and even fur. They manage to bring out a message, which we understand even though theres no clothes.
Great work, Danish Fashion & Textile.
