We want to introduce you to a new talent in mens-wear design. Matthew Miller . Considering his crazy-strong design, it really is a shame that we are writing about his -without a doubt- huge talent , just now.
Matthew Miller A/W 2011
We were able to see his A/W 2012/13 show ‘live’ during London Fashion Week. An absolute highlight. The young-designer really hits the pulse of the time with his textile creations . Major points of his works : Masculinity , modernity and technology. In his designs it comes to a fusion of perfect tailoring and progressive fabrics as well as cuts . Miller is using a lot of fabrics from the performance division , which he often refines with digital prints. He earned his skills at the Royal College of Art in London. Enthusiasts of mens fashion design , should take their time to click threw Matthew Millers work. It pays off, promise! Overview of his S/S 2012 collection -
ALEXANDER WANG is daring to touch another, more peripheral, fashion-issue after the H&M-cooperation: Interior.
He designed a ‘Bean Bag Chair’ for the Italian label Poltrona Frau and a booze-case – or rather wrapped it with black leather.
For 8.800,- dollars you can buy the luxurious bean bag, for 18.500,- dollar the box. One can only hope, that Wang used his own ball-skin for the pieces, considering the price. Everything else would be: rude.

A few years ago, streetstyle-experts started wearing their jackets or coats around their shoulders, instead of putting their arms through their sleeves. The technical term for that is ‘coat slinging’.
Recently, the german newspaper BUNTE (!) reported about the styling-trend. ‘Coat slinging’ therefore officially became a ‘no-go’. So: dear friends with good taste, please stick your arms in your sleeves from now on.
Because a sleeve without an arm, is like Justin O’Shea without Veronika, like Cara Delevigne without eyebrows: somehow not complete.
In 2008, Scott Schuman (aka: The Sartorialist) has revealed the first case of ‘coat slinging’ on his blog, afterwards an epidemic broke out, from which the fashion-world still has not recovered.
It has been enough: put your jackets on properly again! Otherwise you appear like a gay fashion-journalist from 2010 (who would put his arms into sleeves nowadays)
