  • BEN SHERMAN AW17 CAMPAIGN

MODERN RHYTHM

Keeping in line with the heritage of Ben Sherman while still embracing men today “Modern Rhythm” celebrates Two Tone British Ska beat music and youth culture underpinned by the spirit of the sharp, smart 60s American Jazz scene.

The essence of “Modern Rhythm” is captured through seasonal drops in themed moods: Sixties Sharp, British Beat and West Coast Sound Studio keeping you decked out in true Brit style throughout winter. Our favourites? The trench coat and the parka of course.

Fashion: JX PREMIUM AW17: THE ICONIC BIKER JACKET

Written by | Found in: Fashion Style | Posted on: 25 Apr 2017 - 7:59 am
  • JX PREMIUM BIKER JACKET R1 199.95, JX PREMIUM EXCLUSIVE TO EDGARS.

AN ICON IN EVERY WAY

The biker jacket is an iconic style that instantly conjures images of Hollywood icons such as James Dean and Marlon Brando. Traditionally made from leather, there’s no reason the biker jacket can’t adapt to other aesthetics.

The JX Premium biker is a great lightweight cotton alternative to leather for our moderate winters. Wear it over a button-down shirt and skinny jeans for a classic look that oozes effortless cool. Smarten up with Chelsea boots and a tie or dress down with sneakers. It’s a classic look that every man can pull off.

  • [J-VARADERO GIACCA] SUEDE JACKET, R6 299.00, DIESEL

THE VELVET BOMBER

Velvet is having a moment and is making a comeback as this season’s answer to texture. The former military piece has become a menswear staple in every way possible and gets reworked in velvet. Before you sign up, let’s look at what exactly it is about velvet that is having a reawakening.

Casual velvet? Yes, sir. Velvet isn’t meant for the red carpet anymore. That’s great news, meaning you get to be a little more relaxed when wearing it – and it’s easy to do so. Slim jeans and plain tees is an easy outfit, made super sportsluxe with this contrast leather collared velvet bomber jacket from Diesel’s AW17 collection.

Grooming: MASTER THE SHAVE IN ASSOCIATION WITH EGDARS

MASTER THE SHAVE

Shaving is a fundamental part of being a man. A welcomed rite of passage into manhood, a tradition passed from father to son. Fair enough. But let’s be honest shaving can sometimes seem more like a chilling surgical procedure rather than the pleasant male ritual it was promised to be.

But many men are guilty of bad shaving habits (if not daily then surely occasionally) that contribute to the unhealthy condition of their skin. Old blades, poor prep and shaving with cheap foam or worse yet soap wreak havoc on the skin resulting in painful and unsightly razor burn, bumps and inflammation.

Grooming: NEW FRAGRANCE: MR. BURBERRY EDP

  • JOSH WHITEHOUSE ANNOUNCED THE FACE OF NEW MR. BURBERRY EDP FRAGRANCE
  • MR. BURBERRY EDP 150ML R2000.00, EDP 100ML R1650.00 AND EDP 50ML R1170.00 SELECTED RETAILERS

INTRODUCING MR.BURBERRY EDP

Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum, is a deeper, more sensual interpretation of the iconic Mr. Burberry Eau de Toilette. This new release, the collaboration between Burberry’s Chief Creative, Christopher Bailey, and perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, takes inspiration from the brand’s iconic black trench coat and London city at night.

It opens up with zesty notes of grapefruit, tarragon and cardamom, but quickly dries down to a sensual finish of birch leaf and vetiver . The bottle also gets the dressed-up Trenchcoat treatment, with a heavy cap reminiscent of horn buttons and a hand-tied knot in black gabardine the same fabric the iconic Burberry tench is made from.

But the Mr.Burberry story doesn’t end here. Three new limited-edition grooming products – Aftershave Balm, Face Scrub and Hair and Beard Clay – are added to the existing collection, each lightly infused with the scent of Mr. Burberry.

The face (or neck?) of the campaign is rising star Josh Whitehouse, chosen by Christopher Bailey and renowned for his role in 2014’s Northern Soul.
