Fall 2012 Menswear

I admit, I haven't looked that closely at every collection but I had a peek at most of them. None of them really convinced me to blog about except Acne and Wood Wood – two premium brands considerably cheaper than most of the other things shown on the runway these past two weeks. I haven't bought anything from Acne for quite a while now but at the same time I have always included them in my favourite collection sum-ups each season. The whole mood of the collection gets me every time and the styling is perfect.

Venetia Scott

Do you know Venetia Scott? Not only is she quite well-known as a stylist in the fashion industry but she's also a really good photographer. She's been styling the Marc Jacobs ad campaigns from the beginning with Juergen Teller (working with him a lot in the early days and they were a couple at one point and have a child together). Her photographs are immediately recognizable among the flood of fashion editorials. She's regularly photographing ad campaigns for A.P.C. and Margaret Howell and editorials for various magazines. As with Juergen Teller, she only does an assignment if she has complete control over the process and the way of dealing with it. I guess that's how you can maintain that distinctive look and stay true to yourself.

Bits And Bobs #69

Shirt by American Apparel, Woolen Sweatshirt by Our Legacy, Coat by ASOS, Jeans by Acne, Shoes by Nike, Glasses by Moscot, Socks by Uniqlo

Happy new year everyone!! Thanks for still bearing with me in 2012 even though my blog entries have become somewhat of a rarity these days compared to a year ago. I often have a hard time choosing what to blog about (especially related to fashion) and I don't want to spam you with outfit entries either but you may rest assured that I am not abandoning this blog. But let's have a look at my outfit now. Fortunately, there's no snow in the city (where it only turns into big piles of mud) so I am able to wear these comfortable pair of sneakers from Nike. It's the same model as in one of my previous entries just in another colour. I love the sporty and relaxed cut of sweatshirts so what's better than combining that with a warm wool fabric for winter? Our Legacy has become my new favourite brand for basics.
