Fashion: THE CLASSIC WHITE SHIRT

Written by | Found in: Fashion | Posted on: 15 Aug 2018 - 4:13 pm

NOT ALL WHITE SHIRTS ARE CREATED EQUAL

In these uncertain economic times the frugal sartorialist is better served by an enduring classic than fleeting fast fashion.

And the right white shirt is the perfect place to start. With its humble origin as an undershirt, the white shirt today is the cornerstone of a man’s wardrobe. It’s the pristine anchor for a formal suit and the crisp complement to blue jeans.

But not all white shirts are created equal. To make it easier for you we’ve scouted the stores and handpicked 5 beautiful white shirts, each with it’s own unique detail – whether a cuff, a collar or a perfectly tailored fit.

To wear a tie or not? Well, that depends entirely on your rebel within.

Fashion: PUMA | THUNDER DESERT | DROPPING 9TH AUGUST!

Written by | Found in: Fashion News | Posted on: 6 Aug 2018 - 3:16 pm
  • PUMA THUNDER DESERT, R2 299 at PUMA SELECT, PUMA Gateway, PUMA V&A Waterfront, PUMA Sandton City, PUMA Rosebank and selected sportscene stores.

THE NEW PUMA THUNDER DESERT

Thunder continues to disrupt the scene as PUMA releases all-new monotone iterations of the Thunder Desert on August 9th.

While the debut Thunder Spectra took on a bold statement with its retro colour blocking and neon pops, the latest Thunder Desert drops simulate light and shadows in the desert with Triple Black and White colourways. It retains the bold signature exaggerated tooling, blown-up proportions and material mix of premium suede, textured leather and mesh.

The Thunder pays homage to past collabs and silhouettes ahead of their time. Inspired by 90s Cell System running silhouettes and the PUMA x McQueen collaboration, the style is a reimagined pair of kicks with a bulky, unapologetic look and feel.

Fashion: DIESEL | IRONIC NEW SUMMER CAMPAIGN

Written by | Found in: Fashion News | Posted on: 9 Jul 2018 - 3:29 pm

READY TO UNWEAR

Here’s something to get you through the gloom of winter – Diesel recently announced the debut of its latest summer campaign, titled “Ready To Unwear”, which promotes the idea that, during the summer, less equals more.

The thinking behind this ironic moniker, inverting the common fashion industry phrase of “ready to wear” – is that summer’s best memories are often experienced in varying degrees of undress. The campaign also celebrates and promotes anti-conformity and a personal choice to never ride the tide, to put something on, but not be afraid to take it off either.

Subverting the norm, the new Diesel “Ready to Unwear” campaign is the ironic celebration that less is more. Much more!

Today in celebration of the iconic PUMA Suede’s 50th anniversary these two legends collide in the PUMA X MCM Suede – adorned with luxury fashion house MCM’s monogram and reimagined for the hip-hop royalty of today.

Available in two colour options in brown/black and white/grey with co-brand insoles, leather laces and a gold plate on each tongue the Puma x MCM Suede launches alongside a Track Jacket and Track Pants boasting the unique MCM print.

The PUMA x MCM limited-edition collection is now available at the PUMA SELECT store in Braamfontein and X-Trend stores.
