Christopher Kane in Christopher Kane - Christopher Kane Spring Summer 2015 #LFW

Christopher Kane wears face brain lightning t-shirt at Christopher Kane Spring Summer 2015

Christopher Kane presented the Christopher Kane Spring Summer 2015 womenswear collection on 15th September 2014 in London as part of London Fashion Week. The Scottish designer wore a black t-shirt with a face / brain print, which I don't recall seeing in any of his menswear collections, but first shown in his Christopher Kane Spring Summer 2014 womenswear show. That is a lot of Christopher Kane in one paragraph...

Not sure what the graphic depicted, but it was from the collection where Dracula was featured. Could that be the brain scan of Dracula, with a shocking / scary lightning thrown in too? Whatever it might be or whoever it could be, Christopher Kane looked really jubilant when he came out towards the end to receive the accolades. Nice to see him not in Prada for a change!

Here is Michael's (aka AnastasiaDuck) Christopher Kane t-shirt. #welljell

Jamie Campbell Bower in Burberry - Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Spring Summer 2015 #LFW

Jamie Campbell Bower attended the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Spring Summer 2015 show as part of London Fashion Week on 15th September 2014 at London's Kensington Gardens. Jamie Campbell Bower wore a blue coat and typography printed scarf from Burberry Prorsum Spring Summer 2015, over black denims and matching black leather lace-ups.

Love the bright blue boxy coat which feels so summery and in-season. The green oversized scarf was quite the hero item when it was presented during the menswear show back in June. I love typography and am obsessed with fonts, so it is no surprise that this is an item high on my wishlist. Inspired by artwork seen on vintage English book covers, the painterly feel pretty much sets the tone for both the menswear and womenswear collection.




The Burberry Prorsum Womenswear Spring Summer 2015 collection presented today is named ‘The Birds and The Bees’, and features several oversized cashmere scarves (70cm x 195cm) much like the one that Jamie Campbell Bower wore. While his scarf will only be available from January 2015, we can shop the above similar pieces direct from the runway until 29th September 2014, with delivery within nine weeks. Still by far the only fashion power house that allows us to shop a large and comprehensive collection straight after the show.

David Beckham attended the launch of "Off Road" on 9th September 2014 at Belstaff House, 814 Madison Avenue, New York. David Beckham wore a 'Stannard' leather jacket from the Beckham for Belstaff collection. "Off Road" is a beautiful book of photographic outtakes from the Belstaff 2014 global advertising campaign starring David Beckham, lensed by the legendary Peter Lindbergh.

Doesn't David Beckham look incredible? This man wears a finely tailored suit and rocks a leather jacket with equal aplomb. Lest you forget, there is the HM x David Beckham bodywear too. For the book launch, Madison Avenue in New York was closed for the occasion, with a group of Brooklyn bikers riding down the street in celebration, dressed in vintage and current Belstaff.

Launch of Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition

Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition
Ben McKenzie / Ermenegildo Zegna

Ermenegildo Zegna celebrated the launch of the Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition at Industria Superstudio in New York City on 9th September 2014. Several celebrities attended the event and were dressed in impeccable Zegna tailoring. Ben McKenzie (above), Southland and The O.C. alumni, wore a nicely tailored dark grey two button notch lapel suit, over a pale blue shirt from Z Zegna.

Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition
Brendan Fallis / Ermenegildo Zegna

Brendan Fallis, DJ and entrepreneur, wore a grey windowpane two button notch lapel suit, over a classic white shirt and black tie from Z Zegna. Brendan Fallis looked incredible. Besides being one of the best dressed of the night, he must be the most sartorial DJ ever. The suit fitted great, love the very clean cut wholesome image. Brendan Fallis also shot an editorial for Mr Porter a while back.

Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition
Carmelo Anthony / Ermenegildo Zegna

Carmelo Anthony, NBA player for the New York Knicks, wore a double breasted wool sweater in grey with grey plaid trousers, all from Ermenegildo Zegna Couture.

Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition
Henrik Lundqvist / Ermenegildo Zegna

Henrik Lundqvist, NHL goaltender for the New York Rangers, wore a blue two button notch lapel suit, over a white shirt and blue tie, all from Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. Love the slight sheen from the suit, and the choice of the matching silk tie and pocket square. Impeccable grooming, I could have mistaken him for a Swedish prince.

Maserati Quattroporte Zegna Limited Edition
Johannes Huebl / Ermenegildo Zegna

Johannes Huebl, one of my all time favourite style icons, wore a blue and red double breasted windowpane suit, over a white shirt, black silk tie and white pocket square, all from Ermenegildo Zegna. It is often difficult to wear double breasted suits, but Johannes Huebl did it with such amazing ease. Love the choice of brown lace-ups with the grey suit, with the peek of the matching gold tone timepiece. Love the nonchalant tousled hair and slight stubble, like a rebel waiting to burst out of his perfectly tailored suit.

Maserati
Matt Lauer / Ermenegildo Zegna

Matt Lauer, Television journalist and host of NBC’s “The Today Show”, wore a Made-to-Measure, blue windowpane two button notch lapel suit, over a blue shirt and knit tie from Ermenegildo Zegna. Totally faultless styling, especially loving the beautifully polished monk strap shoes which work so well with the gorgeous blue suit.


And of course, the star of the show: The Maserati Quattroporte was reinterpreted and customized with new colors, materials and trims, with some lifted directly from Zegna’s famous suit line. Only 100 will be built and owners will also benefit from a unique collection of accessories by Zegna, specially designed for each of the cars.

Jason Bateman in Dior Homme - 2014 Toronto International Film Festival

Jason Bateman and Amanda Anka attended the "This Is Where I Leave You" premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at Roy Thomson Hall on 7th September 2014 in Toronto, Canada. Jason Bateman wore a black wool suit, over a white cotton shirt and a black silk tie, all from Dior Homme. 

I often wish for colours on the red carpet (how amazing was Amanda Anka's metallic dress!), but I do love the little details surrounding Jason Bateman's outfit. The tiny embroidered bee on his Dior Homme white shirt to the black silk tie with the subtle logo on the tip. Playful, but button up the suit and all is hidden.

Andrew Garfield attended the "99 Homes" premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival at Princess of Wales Theatre on 8th September 2014 in Toronto, Canada. Andrew Garfield wore  a modern fit wool pinstripe suit from Burberry Tailoring for the event. Very good fit of the suit on Andrew Garfield, the styling is really faultless. Do we like Andrew Garfield new look with the full grown beard?
