News: G-Star Raw SS14

LOOKING FORWARD TO G-STAR SS14

For Spring/Summer 2014, G-Star Raw is highlighting classic jackets in high-tech fabrications. Modern wardrobe staples – from bombers to parkas are constructed from ultra lightweight nylons and meshes. A collection typically G-Star: a unity of function and innovation.

Our favourite is the James Trench, a classic realised in carbourne nylon that exemplifies the G-Star look of raw sophistication.

Naturally, the collection is completed with denim, spanning authentic raw versions, to inventive finishes.

I got my first introduction to MATBLAC at the 2012 Design Indaba. His attention to detail and passion for his craft was and is still awe-inspiring. I really love his Macbook iSleeves. Made with a combination of German felt and South African bovine leather, the iSleeve will ensure your Macbook is protected from water and static. If like me you occasionally have butterfingers you’ll be happy to know that it’ll absorb some of the shock from tumbles too. Proudly South African these handcrafted covers will make your Macbook the envy of all other MacBooks.

Introducing the collection on November 6, this accessible collaboration between Alexander Wang and H&M will definitely have H&M stores swamped. This partnership marks the first time that an American designer teams up with H&M. With nothing more than this teaser video below to go by, we’ll all have to wait with patience for more news to come. It goes without saying that I would want this entire collection in my wardrobe. If only!

If you’re like me, then you take lighting (and especially lighting used for reading) pretty seriously. Pedersen & Lennard have designed this little beauty using steel and timber. What I love most about their Stockholm Reading Lamp is the unpretentious and simple design. Letting the materials do what they do best, they’ve managed to make this lamp a work of art. Get one of these luminary masterpieces (in a variety of colours) from their online store for R950.

HAIR RAISING

A good head of hair is something most men take pride in having and live in fear of losing.  And while male pattern baldness is something of a genetic time bomb, there are plenty of things you can do to lengthen the fuse. You can start by ditching the economy pack 2-in-1’s. After all your mane is your crowning glory. So why skimp? Give your hair a boost with Lock,Stock & Barrel Reconstruct Thickening Shampoo. Aside from the physical benefits the dispenser looks pretty darn manly too.

When it comes to toiletries, every man should have a good quality travel bag for his grooming gear. Sorry guys, a Checkers packet just won’t cut it anymore. For something a little more classy and uber-masculine check out The Barbershop toiletry case by local designers Wolf & Maiden. Made from 100% genuine newbuck leather this baby’s been hand-stitched and will have even your most macho buddies jealous. It fits all the essentials and then some and I don’t travel anywhere without it.
