16 Seasonal Must-Haves for Fall & Winter 2018

Fashion is a complex melting pot of sartorial choices, where almost anything goes as long as you add an intentionally on-trend component to the outfit. Individualism is the most important trend of all, and it’s extremely liberating. Now more than ever, we’re celebrating style diversity and the many, many ways to look stylish. Take the PERSONAL in personal style to heart because you have the power to pick and choose from the trend buffet, and sport it your way.

After a well-received trend report, here are my suggested must-haves for the cold-weather season. They cut across all body types, ages, price points and lifestyles.

1. Rock Earth Tones

Rock them heavy or rock them lite. Think colours like all shades of tan, cream and chocolate brown, toffee, cinnamon, olive, burnt orange, cognac, harissa, mustard, camel, sage, forest green, taupe and a very brown shade of burgundy. Wear earth tones across any clothing item, pair of shoes or accessory. Stick to brown leather or wear earth tones in a pattern if that’s more your thing. And feel free to wear earth tones with your favourite colours.

2. Enjoy Animal Print

There’s an animal print for everyone. There’s classic leopard and cheetah that goes the distance, but don’t forget giraffe, pony, cow and snakeskin. Think animal print in neutrals AND non-neutrals. Any colour of animal print is fab, and in any wardrobe item. Wear it as a statement clothing item, or stick to accessories and footwear.

3. Bring Back Full-Length Bootcuts

Bootcuts that are NOT cropped are back with a vengeance. Wear them with a higher rise and showcase the rise with a tucked, semi-tucked, or shorter top. Sport them with sneakers, flats, or very low heels for an updated look.

4. Nod to Western Wear

Think Western boots in any way at all. Cowboy boots are having their fashion moment, although they’re an iconic classic. Think belts with western buckles, tiered skirts, ruffled shirts, prairie dresses, fringed jackets, suede, and cowboy shirts.

5. Release Red

A true Christmas red is THE red of the season, but feel free to sport any shade of red across any wardrobe item. It’s a versatile colour that works with just about any neutral and non-neutral to my eye. And if you dare, sport it with shocking pink.

6. Create a Maximal Effect

It’s about wearing “it all” together to create a harmonized whole. That means remixing patterns, textures, colours, layers and silhouettes, because the only limit to the aesthetic is your own tolerance for the combination. Sport multiple accessories, combine a range of colours and patterns, dress in multiple visual layers, and don’t forget dramatic nail polish, rainbow hair, and make-up. Feel free to interpret maximalism as fully as you see on the catwalks, or tone things down considerably.

7. Add Structure to Your Outfit

Structure is about accentuating the actual shape of your body, like defining the waist and hips, the shape of your arms and legs, or the shape of your shoulders. So think TAILORING. Sport beautifully tailored jackets, dresses, trousers and skirts. Sport form-fitting tops. Add a waist-defining belt to outfits. Wear jackets and coats with waist ties. Tuck and semi-tuck tops into bottoms to showcase waistlines and high rises.

Remember that a structured outfit needn’t be structured or body-con from head to toe. A fit-and-flare dress is structured up top, but voluminous from the waist down, creating a balance of tailored movement.

8. Lengthen the Blazers

It’s a jacket and cardigan season, and not a pullover season. That means that knitwear is simple and basic so that it can be layered under a jacket like a blazer. Remind yourself of the beauty of the blazer, and sport one. A longer length ‘90s inspired blazer looks the most trendy, although short blazers look awfully good with flared dresses and skirts. Blazers don’t need to be stiff, corporate and conservative. They can be fun, festive, and a nod to the Structure trend. Blazers can also be layered under coats so that you can wear them through Winter.

9. Add the Flair of a Fashion Era

Individualism means that it’s thoroughly modern to be Modern Retro. The most universally stylish, and probably your favourite silhouettes date back to fashion eras gone by, which we can remix today with a good dose of Current. Pick an era(s) and weave its sensibilities into your style. The ’70s, ‘80s and ‘90s are particularly popular at the moment but if you’re a ‘60s gal, or love the ‘20s, ‘30s and ‘40s — go for it. I’m hopelessly devoted to the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s.

10. Wear Midi Skirts & Dresses

Longer length skirts and dresses are the most on trend. Choose heavier weight dresses with sleeves, add fun hosiery, jacket/gilet, any length of boot, a scarf and statement coat. Or combine Winter skirts with knitwear, hosiery, boots, oxfords or pumps. Throw a blazer, jacket and/or coat over the top.

IMPORTANT: You do NOT need to be tall to wear midi lengths. Wear the lengths in proportion to your height and you’re good to go. My 4ft 9 friend rocks midi skirts with flats with the best of them. Enough said.

11. Lengthen the Rise

It’s all about showcasing a high or very high rise in all sorts of pants and jeans, which means tucking or semi-tucking tops. You can also wear a shorter roomier top to showcase more of the rise if you’re not a tucker. Go for a mid rise if you’re short in the waist.

Showcasing the high rise of jeans and pants is part of the Structure trend, but you don’t need to wear tight bottoms or a form-fitting top. You can indicate the rise and waist by semi-tucking a fluid top and wearing bottoms that are a relaxed fit on the thighs.

12. Tick off Tartans & Checks

Think any type of check, tartan or plaid in any neutral or non-neutral, and in any wardrobe item. Pattern mix the checks with animal print, if you dare. If a plaid scarf is the only way you sport checks, that’s fab too.

13. Play with Puffers

I can’t think of a more practical and popular coat than some sort of puffy topper. Short, long, neutral, non-neutral, tailored, classic, cropped, sleeveless, avant-garde, thin, thick, sporty, equestrian, sleek, voluminous – there’s a puffy topper for every climate and fashion persona. These days you can wear a puffer over a ball gown with sneakers and look fashionable.

14. Wear Flats & Low Heels

Gone are the days that you were at a stylish disadvantage if you couldn’t wear high heels. In many cases flats and low heels look more current paired with outfits, and are more practical and authentic too. The very low heel in particular – between an inch and an inch and a half – is having its fashion moment across ALL heel and toe box shapes. Sneakers can be worn with just about anything these days too. May this trend last forever.

15. Flirt with Florals

We think of floral and botanical patterns as a Spring and Summer vibe, which is a dated way of looking at the pattern. Wear florals in Autumn and Winter and have fun pattern mixing with them. Wearing florals with dark backgrounds, in moody colours, or in earth tones might help break the seasonal stereotype.

16. Add a Wild Card

A wild card is an item that is atypical for your style persona, but that speaks to you in some way. Adding a wild card to your wardrobe is an excellent way to evolve your style, making it feel extra refreshed for the season. They can be a way to solve a style and fit challenge, or to temper your poison eye for a look. Wild cards can be new colours, vibes or silhouettes. Or a new way that you wear your hair, your make-up, or put together your outfits. Wild cards always make my must-haves list because nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Remember that these items have to mesh with the factors that affect your style. Pander to your style descriptor, whether that’s rocker, avant-garde, boho, preppy, arty, corporate, casual, urban, dressy, trendy, folksy, sporty, girly, rough-around-the-edges, moody, elegant, polished, sophisticated, classic or hard-edged. Find the renditions that best express you and your style.

Personally, I’m all over ALL sixteen must-haves, and apart from long blazers have all of them represented in my wardrobe. I will continue to refresh along these lines and enjoy the small and larger shifts in my style. I’m grateful that trends are diverse, that size ranges are extending, and that individualism reigns supreme.

Which trends are featuring in your Fall and Winter wardrobe refresh this season? Are there any surprises?

How to Get Ready for Fall: Wardrobe Maintenance & Best Buys

As this article is first being published, we’re just a few short days away from the official arrival of fall here in the northern hemisphere. Thus, we’ve put together a guide on how best to get your wardrobe ready for the change in seasons, as well as a list of more great buys for fall (and winter).

Before we delve into some more specific recommendations of what to add to your style arsenal, let’s first go over some tips for how to whip your closet into shape.

How to Get Your Wardrobe Ready for Fall

As a general rule, most men will likely have to spend less time “rotating their wardrobes” as the women in their lives (though exceptions on both sides do exist, of course). Especially for the man who has developed a well-functioning capsule wardrobe, many of the same pieces can be worn across multiple seasons. With that said, even the most versatility-conscious among us will probably have accrued a few questionable items over the past six months to a year; as such, while you might not be bringing bins of garments in and out of storage, this transitional period from warmer to colder weather is an opportune time to give your closet a bit of a tune-up.

My Ikea Pax Wardrobes

Two of Sven Raphael Schneider’s Ikea Pax wardrobes (suitably well-sorted!)

This wardrobe readjustment shouldn’t take you more than a few hours, if your items are already decently well-organized–if not, of course, this will also be a good time for you to get any large-scale messes back in order; for more help with this, consult our guide to Wardrobe Maintenance Essentials, or have a look at some helpful Tech Tools. Assuming things are under control however, the goal here should simply be to make an honest assessment of what it is that you regularly wear, what’s worn less commonly that still has a well-defined purpose or function (for example, a black-tie outfit), and what items fit neither of these categories. In this latter case, you can separate garments into the further categories of things unworn because they’re in need of repair (or are irreparable), and things that no longer harmonize with your personal style. Remember to be open to discarding things–don’t just hold onto items if all they’re doing is taking up space–and you’ll find that sorting into categories will make this process go by smoothly and efficiently.

A large walk-in closet–fairly well-organized, but it could be using its space even more efficiently!

Here are a few simple steps that should help you to review and edit your existing wardrobe. At the end of said steps, you’ll be better acquainted with what in your closet is ready for fall, and what you could stand to remove.

A Simple Guide to Wardrobe Maintenance

Place each of the items in your wardrobe into one of five sections: Toss, Clean, Repair/Tailor, Consign/Donate, and Ready to Wear.

  • Toss: Simply put, anything with holes or permanent stains has outlived its usefulness. Nothing neutralizes the effect of an otherwise sharp outfit like the sight of a worn-out garment like a shirt with yellow underarms, a tie with a prominent grease stain, or a sock full of holes. If it can’t be cleaned or repaired (see below), it’s time to toss.
Use Baby Powder to Remove Oil Stains

An oil stain of this nature might be able to be removed at home. If not, dry cleaning should take care of it.

  • Clean: If a garment has more manageable stains or blemishes, it may be able to be brought back to life by a reputable dry cleaner. Try to remember the age of the stain, as well as the materials involved; the more information that you can give to the cleaner, the better. Remember that clothes should be dry cleaned only when absolutely necessary, so if the garment in question just needed a regular at-home laundering, take care of that, as well. Be sure to read your tags!
  • Repair/Tailor: If you’ve been refraining from wearing an item because of a missing button, a frayed cuff, or an open seam, take the initiative to get the item properly repaired. This can be done at home, of course, if you’re confident enough in your own sewing abilities, but if the nature of the repair is more advanced, a professional might be better suited for the job. Similarly, if you’ve got a garment that’s only slightly too big or too small on you (generally, within one size in either direction), a quality tailor should be able to alter the piece to fit you properly. Fit is the most important aspect of any wardrobe, after all, so do what you can to get all of your clothes looking neat and trim.

  • Consign/Donate: There are a few key reasons to donate some of your garments, assuming they’re still in good enough condition not to end up in the “toss” pile. Firstly, if the garment in question no longer harmonizes with the sort of wardrobe you’ve developed for yourself (let’s say, for example, a durable pair of baggy cargo shorts?), it’s a good candidate for donation. Also, if you’ve got clothing that no longer fits you by a factor of multiple sizes–either too small or too big–or if it’s so obviously dated to a particular era that it couldn’t be worn outside of a Halloween costume, it may be time to donate these items, as well. Feel free to keep one powder-blue leisure suit on hand if you’ve got a 1970s-themed party planned, but otherwise, say goodbye to examples of extreme trends. As a bonus, the money you could earn from consigned clothes and the tax deduction for your donations can be put towards buying pieces that will better complement and your existing wardrobe!
  • Ready to Wear: After you’ve put everything else into one of the other four categories, what you should have remaining are the items that you already wear frequently and that you know make you look great. Just to be sure that these items are in fact being worn as much as you think, try one of our favorite style hacks, and use the directional alignment of your clothes hangers to act as a visual shorthand for what’s being worn most. If you get through the season without wearing some items, they might be able to be gotten rid of the next time you streamline your wardrobe.
hangers facing in one direction and put them in the other way when garment is worn

To easily keep track of what you wear, start with your hangers facing in one direction, and switch them when a garment is worn.

As simple as that, your current wardrobe has been primed for the oncoming fall season! Here are a few additional notes:

  • Any items that you’ve decided to keep for sentimental reasons should be placed in long-term storage (and stored in a space not used for your clothes).
  • If the above steps are difficult for you to tackle alone, ask a friend or close family member to offer their opinions.

Now that you’ve gone through your wardrobe and eliminated what you won’t be wearing, however, you’d be even better suited for the new season by acquiring a few new garments. We’ve provided a list of 11 Must-Haves for Fall in the past, but here are some additional recommendations for autumnal attire.

10 Great Buys for Fall (& Winter!)

What follows is a list of 10 items (or in some cases, categories of items) that we believe will bring your fall wardrobe to the next level–and will keep you looking stylish through the winter.

1. Quality Outerwear (Trench Coats, Peacoats, Waxed-Cotton Jackets, & Leather Jackets)

As fall brings a chill in the air, you’re going to want to have a few options to layer on top of your outfits for added warmth. Additionally, there is always a chance that Mother Nature might throw in other elements, like rain or early snow. Whatever the case may be, a variety of choices in outerwear will be your best bet; as such, we recommend a few different styles, including the trench coat, peacoat, waxed cotton jacket, and leather jacket.

2. More Leather Goods (Dress Boots, Bags, Watch Bands, etc.)

Fall is perhaps the ideal season for various leather accessories, given that their various shades of tan, brown, and red echo the hues of the foliage. As such, now may be the perfect time to take the plunge on that pair of Chelsea boots you’ve been eyeing for months, step up your business ensembles with a new briefcase, or give your wrist a subtle hint of rich color with a leather watch band. Of course, the leather accessories in the Fort Belvedere shop are worthwhile additions, as well!

3. Cotton Flannel Button-Up Shirts

As with warm leather hues, there’s no better time than fall to break out the tartans, plaids, and other checked patterns, especially when it comes to shirts. Wearing a subtle check with a typical dress shirt is great for the office, but for more casual days at home or out and about, nothing says fall like a soft cotton flannel button-up in a plaid pattern. While a large red-and-black buffalo plaid may make you look like Paul Bunyan or the Brawny Man, there are more subtle ways to wear plaid, as well.

Plaid cotton flannel shirt, flannel chalk stripe suit, knit cardigan and donegal tweed overcoat

A plaid cotton flannel shirt can even be dressed up; here, an attendee of Pitti Uomo wears one with a flannel chalk stripe suit, knit cardigan and donegal tweed overcoat.

4. A Wool Fedora or Trilby

Our previous article on Fall Must-Haves spotlighted flat caps as an ideal piece of headwear for the colder seasons, and this remains true. For a slightly more formal touch, however, go with a hat featuring a full brim all around–namely, a fedora or trilby. Once you find the right type of hat for your face shape, select one in a warm and sturdy wool felt, and you’ll have a topper to last you for many falls and winters to come.

5. Rugby Shirts

Returning to shirts for a moment, another alternative that’s even less formal than the button-up (but still more formal than a simple t-shirt or crew-neck shirt) is the rugby shirt–sort of a long-sleeved sibling to the classic polo. Find one or two of these with a well-built collar and a classic striped design, and you’ll be able to channel your inner preppy this fall.

6. Scarves

For the particularly crisp fall days, just a piece of outerwear may not be enough to keep you warm. In such cases, having a quality scarf around your neck (tied as you like it) can be just the thing. Also, even if you don’t feel the need to be fully wrapped up, having a scarf along to provide an accent to your coat works just as handsomely. Available in a wide variety of materials, weaves, and styles, there’s a type of scarf for every man–and we’ve got a great selection available at Fort Belvedere!

7. A Camel-Hair Sports Coat or Overcoat

While perhaps no fabric is better suited for fall than a good wool tweed (preferably in a checked pattern like houndstooth), another option that’s somewhat overlooked is a jacket made from high-quality camel hair. Warm, sturdy, and usually in a tan color that complements fall wardrobes well, camel-hair sports coats are a welcome addition to any fall wardrobe. Consider an overcoat in camel hair, as well!

8. Dark Denim Jeans

Though jeans are often too informal for the wardrobe combinations of a gentleman–at least, when their fit is too loose, their color is too light, or their condition is too distressed–a good pair of well-fitted dark denim can act as a staple item for many smart-casual or even business casual outfits. Pair your dark jeans with one of your new rugby shirts and a leather jacket, and you’re equally ready for a walk in the countryside or a Sunday brunch. For an old-fashioned touch, you can pinroll them, too!

9. Cardigan Sweaters

Our previous post on must-haves extolled the virtues of lightweight knitted sweaters, and we’re following up on that point here, with a specific shout-out to the cardigan style. The cardigan’s buttoned front gives it a slightly different look from pullover styles, and this extra element of vertical detailing makes it look especially smart when worn under a sports coat, or even with a full suit. Zippered sweaters will give you the full Mister-Rogers look (which is perfectly fine, should you want it!), but the cardigan strikes a good balance between sporty and professorial.

Darmody in Suit with Cardigan in Muted Dark Colors

A very fall-appropriate outfit, featuring warm, muted colors and a cardigan layered under a sturdy suit.

10. Odd Trousers (in Different Fabrics & Patterns)

The final item on this list echoes the previous list’s mention of corduroys, in that it can never hurt to have a few other pairs of smart-casual trousers in your wardrobe, to provide some additional variety among the jeans, khakis, and cords. Whether you opt for cotton flannels in a warm fall color (or the classic solid gray), or wool-cashmere blends in a small check, you’ll be glad to have some more options at the ready, to keep your lower half just as well-outfitted as your upper.

Conclusion

In broad strokes, remember that a well-executed fall wardrobe takes advantage of  textures, layers, earth tones, and soft, warm fabrics; for more advice on matching these effectively, consult this guide. Start by cleaning and organizing your closet, then move on to acquiring some of the recommended garments above. Follow these guidelines, and you’ll be ready to attend any fall party, hayride, or bonfire in style!

Steal Alert: J. Crew Fall Ready Sportcoats & Blazers 25% off

SUITUP = Ludlow Moon Mills Blazer – $ 223.50 ($ 298) | Legacy Blazers – $ 262.50 ($ 350)

It’s billed as a suiting event. But when their suits run $ 650 a pop, 25% off still doesn’t help that much when you compare them to the competition. Yet their stand alone sportcoats are awfully outstanding, and those non-functioning sleeve cuff buttons are hugely helpful when it comes to easy, cheap tailoring.

So suiting? Mneh. But 25% off their legacy blazers AND their just in, Moon Mills English tweed blazers?

That’s worthy of a steal alert.

Perfect for fall and winter, yet not heavy and stiff like many other tweed sportcoats.

These aren’t the super heavy and stiff tweed blazers you’re probably thinking about. Thanks to being only half lined and lightly constructed (more like a washed chino blazer… less like a rigid yacht club number), they actually breathe and move quite nicely. The fabric is a wool cotton blend from Moon Mills in the UK and has a slight herringbone pattern to it. Again, they’re just half lined, and the sleeve buttons are easy to tailor thanks to being non-functioning. Frustratingly, the discount doesn’t appear to count towards their new classic fit versions, with their wider 3.5″ lapels. That stinks if you’re a broader fella.

Also getting the discount is their excellent Legacy blazers. And broader guys rejoice, the Crosby Fit is getting the 25% off here too. Want something a little less formal? Their new-ish unconstructed wool/cotton blazers are up for this SUITUP code as well. Three colors available there, and you can find a full review of those things over this way.

Left: The Unconstructed Wool/Cotton Ludlow | Right: The All Wool Legacy in Ludlow or Crosby

For those who spend most of their time really dressed down, yet still like the look of classic workwear, the Wallace & Barnes Chore Blazer is also up for the 25% off.

UPDATE: Nevermind. The W&B Chore blazers were getting that cut earlier and now they’re not. Thanks to Jeff for the heads up about how the Wallace and Barnes chore blazers have become excluded. Sorry about that. 

Code SUITUP runs clear though Friday, 9/21. Fingers crossed they remove the exclusion from those Classic Fit Moon Mills sportcoats at some point between now and then.

That’s all. Carry on.

Your Renovations Wish List for Fall

As fall approaches, there are a few renovations you may be considering in order to prepare your home for the winter months ahead. Perhaps you want to improve your home’s efficiency, complete a few seasonal maintenance and repair tasks, improve the quality of your indoor living space or prepare your home for entertaining as the holiday months approach. The home equity experts at Tribecca Finance share some common fall renovations you may want to consider.

Improve Your Home’s Efficiency

As temperatures lower and utility bills climb, it’s time to start thinking about ways to improve the energy consumption in your home. Depending on the age of your home, there are a variety of upgrades to consider.

  1. Replace old and drafty windows and doors with new, more efficient models.
  2. Replace old appliances with new, Energy-Star rated appliances.
  3. Upgrade your insulation or have your attic, basement or crawl space spray foamed for improved heat retention.
  4. Replace old shingles to increase the performance of your home’s envelope.
  5. Replace incandescent bulbs with compact florescent bulbs.

If you’re not sure where to start, the best first step is to have a professional home audit completed which will give you a complete overview of the strengths and weaknesses in your home. Some utility companies offer free or low cost audits as well.

Once you decide which upgrades are most beneficial to your home, the next step is to consider funding options. Again, the first place to start is your utility company. Find out what rebates they offer on upgrades that improve efficiency to help lower your cost. Once you have those answers, a home equity loan can help you cover the remainder of the costs with low monthly payments so you can enjoy improved performance without a large up front cost!

Seasonal Maintenance

Basic maintenance tasks completed before winter can go a long way towards an enjoyable and stress free winter in your home!

  1. Furnace and heating system inspections should be completed now to ensure you have no heating problems this winter. This may include changing air filters, replacing an old furnace, cleaning out a boiler system or the like.
  2. If you have a wood burning fireplace, have the chimney cleaned or consider replacing it with a gas insert that will reduce maintenance and improve performance.
  3. Check your roof for any issues that might cause leaking, clean out gutters and consider installing a heating cable to prevent snow and ice build up from damaging your roof over the winter.
  4. If you live in an area that is prone to winter storms, make sure you are prepared by creating an emergency kit, installing a generator as a back up power source, trimming back dead tree limbs that might fall and damage your home in a storm and ensuring winter equipment like your snow blower are in working condition

Many of these maintenance tasks will be routine and very low cost but if you find yourself in a position where you need to make a larger investment to replace an old furnace, repair a roof or something of that type, contact a Tribecca Toronto home equity loan professional to arrange funding. You will be able to access funding in just a few days, allowing you to make the necessarily repairs before it gets cold outside!

Creating Cozy Spaces

For most of us, the winter months will mean a lot more time spent indoors so know is the time to take a look at your home’s interior and consider renovations or upgrades that will make your home more enjoyable over the winter months. This may include:

  1. Finishing renovation projects started over the summer.
  2. Replacing old, outdated furniture with newer, more comfortable pieces.
  3. Replace a wood burning fireplace with a modern gas insert that offers better performance and lower maintenance.
  4. Finishing an unfinished basement to add more usable living space to your home.

If finances are the thing that is keeping you from taking on or finishing projects that would improve the comfort and enjoy-ability of your home, a home equity loan may be the right solution for you. Accessing the equity in your home to complete repairs means you can enjoy the home now while also enjoying flexible repayment options that don’t leave you strapped! Plus, a Tribecca home equity loan can be used for any purpose including DIY projects, new furniture and other items that may be harder to finance through traditional sources!

Preparing for Holiday Guests

Photo Source: sheknows.com

From Thanksgiving to New Years Eve, the next few months bring with them multiple holidays and opportunities to entertain or host guests. Rather then scrambling at the last minute to try and prepare, start now by thinking about what changes you’d like to make to have your home ready to entertain. This might include:

  1. Updating your kitchen to make entertaining easier.
  2. Add or update a guest bedroom for overnight guests.
  3. Give the main areas in your home a new look with a fresh coat of paint.
  4. Repair or replace broken or damaged fixtures, cabinetry, doors, flooring, etc.

Making plans to entertain over the holidays can be a costly affair, especially when you add in all the other costs associated with the holidays! Stretching yourself to thin makes the holidays hard to enjoy! Instead, talk to your Tribecca adviser about flexible repayment options for home equity loans. You can offer your guests a fantastic holiday experience while enjoying small payments over the holidays and then pay off the balance when the holidays are over!

I’m Loving Brown and Light Blue for Fall

I start thinking about how I want to refresh my style for Autumn & Winter 2018 in July, just before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Days before the NAS, I stumbled across Boden’s early Fall 2018 collection where I saw earth tones like brown and toffee combined with light blue, tomato red, and navy. I thought, YES. I love this, and decided right then and there that’s how I’m going to evolve my colour palette for the upcoming season. It set the mood and strategy for the NAS shop in July, and my shop with Inge in Arnhem in August when I visited my Dad.

I like cinnamon and cognac because they’re orange-y, and I adore Dutch orange. I used to have a little of it in my wardrobe, but the items were passed on. I like shades of toffee because they remind me of my late Mum who wore earth tones with the best of them. I have a stormy relationship with animal print that I love one season, and loathe the next. I seldom gravitate towards dark browns because my high school uniform was brown, and it’s taken me this long to recover from wearing it daily for six years. All this to say that I literally woke up one day — thirty years later — and was feeling shades of brown as the next neutral to add to my wardrobe.

I listened to my feelings and made the brown a reality. I bought three pairs of footwear in various shades of brown at the NAS. A pair of chocolate buckled boots, toffee perforated boots, and cognac flat oxfords. I also threw in a toffee cashmere scarf and a new brown belt to complement the lot. I had two old brown belts that work well with the new shoes too. Here are the exact items.

On my next Fall shop in the Netherlands I planned to add the light blue. I found two pretty woolly scarves from a Dutch store called Purdey that work beautifully with the new pairs of shoes. One is a light blue airbrushed floral, and the other an abstract earthy floral animal print with touches of light blue. I also got a light blue Furla from Greg as an extra, belated birthday present. The scarves work as well with the off-white Furla I got in Italy a couple of months ago. Here are the exact items.

I put in an online Boden order for light blue and brown outerwear. The light blue coat was a bust, but the Modern Retro chocolate brown leopard print Horsell jacket worked well. Here it is with a few of my older scarves and bag, when I feel like wearing brown with Winter whites.

Finally, here’s the brown and light blue complement in full with a good underpinning of shades of white. I will treat the brown leopard print topper like a false plain thereby pattern mixing it with the scarves. The collection shows new and old items from my wardrobe that create the fresh brown and light blue complement.

I’ll add a light blue or pastel turquoise coat and knitwear to the complement if it comes my way. Maybe extremely light blue jeans and toffee or cinnamon knitwear too. I’ll also remix the browns and blues with the tomato red, citron, chartreuse, optical white, navy, ink blue, black, and shocking pink in my wardrobe.

Brown, Blue and Sam

Sam approves of my new brown and light blue capsule. After all, he was sporting this colour combination long before I was.

Borsalino Starts New Course With Fall Ad Campaign

Italian label Borsalino has changed hats and is now moving on.
Its new owner, private equity group Haeres Equita, is planning the relaunch of the Alessandria-based hat company starting with its fall ad campaign.
Shot by Italian photographer Joseph Cardo, the images juxtapose black-and-white background shots and color portraits of models — both male and female — sporting the brand’s fall collection, which includes the brand’s signature men’s fedora style and a women’s field hat in an animalier pattern. While channeling the brand’s Old Hollywood elegance, the collage-like composition spotlights the new course of the label, which superimposes on the past.
“Borsalino is unique in the world of accessories, its past is a wonderful magnifying glass with which you can build a new perspective of beauty and modernity,” noted Giacomo Santucci, fashion veteran, a former Gucci executive and a member of Borsalino’s steering committee.
“The hat is a super-contemporary accessory, able to distinguish style by itself. I hope this campaign can suggest new ways of wearing such an iconic piece,” added Cardo, noting that the images are conceived to reach out to different consumers.

The 40 TV Shows You Have to Watch This Fall

This fall TV season promises to be the best in years. The medium continues to draw A-List stars: Julia Roberts appears in an Amazon drama called Homecoming, and Superbad co-stars Emma Stone and Jonah Hill team up for the mind-bending Netflix drama, Maniac. On the comedy side, Jim Carrey plays a Mr. Rogers type dealing with a mental break in Kidding, and Jennifer Garner is teaming up with the Girls writers to portray the vacation from hell in Camping.

Old favorites like Charmed and Murphy Brown are getting rebooted, while the cancelled revival of Roseanne is getting a spinoff called The Conners. Meanwhile, acclaimed showrunners like Mad Men’s Matthew Weiner, The Carmichael Show’s Jerrod Carmichael and House of Cards’ Beau Willimon are all rolling out new shows (The Romanoffs, Rel and The First, respectively).

Oh, and LeBron James will feature in this fall TV lineup too. Here are all the new fall TV shows to tune into, along with premiere dates and trailers.

John Johnson—HBO. Odell Beckham Jr., LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Michael Bennett on The Shop

The Shop

Aug. 28 on HBO

LeBron James is getting his own talk show, but it’s not quite like any talk show you’ve seen before. Set in a barbershop, James invites athletes and artists to debate questions like whether a football player or basketball player should be named the greatest of all time. Guests include Draymond Green, Snoop Dogg and Candace Parker.

MAYANS M.C. -- Pictured: JD Pardo as EZ Reyes. CR: James Minchin/FX

Mayans M.C.

Sept. 4 on FX

Mayans M.C. is a spinoff of the Sons of Anarchy, which featured Charlie Hunnam. The new series centers on the Mayans motorcycle club, which played both rival and ally to the Reapers during the first show’s run. Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (J. D. Pardo), a one-time Stanford student pulled into the gang world, emerges as the series’ star.

Kidding

Sept. 9 on Showtime

Jim Carrey finally returns to television to play a Mr. Rogers-type whose calming onscreen persona doesn’t quite match up with the anger and sadness he feels over a tragedy that occurred when the cameras were off. The show features an impressive cast that includes Judy Greer, Catherine Keener and Frank Langella.

Rel

Sept. 12 on Fox

A year after his beloved series, The Carmichael Show, was cancelled at NBC, writer Jerrod Carmichael is teaming up with one of the show’s stars, Lil Rel Howery, to write a new comedy. Howery added some essential levity to last year’s Get Out. Now he takes center stage as a man picking up the pieces of his life after a divorce.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: CULT -- Pictured: Sarah Paulson as Ally Mayfair-Richards. CR: Frank Ockenfels/FX

American Horror Story: Apocalypse

Sept. 12 on FX

The storylines of Ryan Murphy’s hit anthology series, American Horror Story, are finally meeting. The creator has promised that Apocalypse will be a crossover between Murder House and Coven. Many of Murphy’s favorite actors will return for the season, including Sarah Paulson and Jessica Lange.

The First

Sept. 14 on Hulu

The First centers on the first human mission to Mars and stars Natascha McElhone and Sean Penn. Creator Beau Willimon has said the show celebrates the indomitable human spirit—unlike his more pessimistic series, House of Cards.

FOREVER
Colleen Hayes—Amazon Maya Rudolph in Forever.

Forever

Sept. 14 on Amazon

Master of None co-creator and Parks and Recreation writer Alan Yang teams with another Parks and Rec vet for a somewhat surreal series on the sustainability of marriage. Maya Rudolph and Fred Armisen star as a couple who live a rather routine—even dull—life when something unexpected occurs and the strength of their long-term commitment is tested.

NetflixBojack Horseman

BoJack Horseman

Sept. 14 on Netflix

The quietly brilliant though always bizarre BoJack Horseman returns to Netflix for a fifth season. This season, the show skewers Hollywood’s tendency to play off of actors’ real-life bad boy antics (including harassment and assault) by casting them as bad boys onscreen.

2
Netflix. American Vandal

American Vandal

Sept. 14 on Netflix

Don’t be fooled by the trailer: American Vandal is about more the poop. The true crime parody’s first season centered on the mystery of “who drew the dicks” on faculty cars in the parking lot, but evolved into one of the most clever comedies currently on TV. The second season promises to continue to examine the ethics of true crime journalism and our obsession with the genre—and also show some people pooping their pants.

Maniac

Sept. 21 on Netflix

Emma Stone and Jonah Hill reunite more than 10 years after Superbad for a buzzy, dark Netflix comedy directed by True Detective’s Cary Fukunaga. The actors play two patients in a trial for a drug that its inventor (Justin Theroux) claims will solve all emotional and psychological problems. Things get intriguingly weird.

Fox. L-R: Connie Britton, Oliver Stark and Angela Bassett in the 9-1-1

9-1-1

Sept. 23 on Fox

Leave it to Ryan Murphy to conjure up the most over-the-top procedural imaginable. The show about the people who respond to emergencies—including cops, firefighters and EMTs—escalated to heart-pounding levels in its first season. Angela Bassett, Connie Britton and Peter Krause are likely to send us into full cardiac arrest in season 2.

Manifest - Pilot
Craig Blankenhorn—NBC. Josh Dallas and Jack Messina in Manifest

Manifest

Sept. 24 on NBC

Think of Manifest as Lost—but without the whole bit about getting stranded on an island. After a turbulent but routine plane ride, a group of passengers disembark to find out that while they felt they only spent a few hours in the air, the rest of the world has believed the flight to be missing for five years.

This Is Us - Season 2
Ron Batzdorff—NBC. Sterling K. Brown and Susan Kelechi Watson in This Is Us

This Is Us

Sept. 25 on NBC

The weepy show returns for a third season. The writers of the show have promised that after a season all about Jack’s death, the show will finally focus a bit more on his life. That’s not to say This Is Us is suddenly turning into a comedy. Between Toby’s (Chris Sullivan) depression and anxiety-inducing flash-forwards featuring Randall (Sterling K. Brown), fans are sure to shed plenty of tears.

Richard Cartwrigh—ABC. (l-r) Kimrie Lewis, Jake Choi, Leighton Meester and Brad Garrett in Single Parents

Single Parents

Sept. 26 on ABC

New Girl creator Elizabeth Meriwether has joined forces with another alum of her show, J.J. Philbin, on a new comedy. The show features a group of single parents who rely on each other as a support system and stars Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester and Saturday Night Live’s Taran Killam.

A Million Little Things

Sept. 26 on ABC

Since This Is Us became a megahit, every network has scrambled to find a similar tearjerker. A Million Little Things fits that bill. The show begins when a tight-knit group of friends, who have since drifted apart, find out that one of their group has committed suicide. The life-altering news brings the group back together. The trailer even hints at a mystery as the group tries to figure out why their friend took his life.

Robert Tractenberg—CBSMultiple Emmy Award winners Candice Bergen and series creator Diane English reunite for MURPHY BROWN, the revival of the ground-breaking comedy about the eponymous broadcast news legend and her biting take on current events, now in a world of 24-hour cable, social media, ‘fake news’ and a vastly different political climate.

Murphy Brown

Sept. 27 on CBS

Twenty years after it went off the air, the groundbreaking comedy is returning to television. Candice Bergen’s Murphy is still a journalist—though now she has her own talk show. Creator Diane English has said she’s already written episodes for this season that take on the immigration debate, #MeToo and President Donald Trump.

The Good Place - Season 2
Colleen Hayes—NBC. Kristen Bell and Jameela Jamil in The Good Place

The Good Place

Sept. 27 on NBC

When Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur first pitched The Good Place, he proposed a light comedy with the twists (and ethical weight) of Lost. Somehow, he’s managed to pull that off for two seasons of hilarious and surprising television with Kristen Bell leading an impressive ensemble cast. Heading into season 3, The Good Place continues to be one of the best comedies on television.

I Feel Bad

Oct. 4 on NBC

With every fall season comes a glut of new family comedies, most of which don’t exactly work. But Aseem Batra’s new show has a seal of approval from a beloved comedian: Amy Poehler acts as executive producer. The series centers on a mother who feels bad about falling short of her too-high standards for herself as a mother, wife and boss. Blockers‘ Sarayu Rao stars.

Hulu

Into the Dark

Oct. 5 on Hulu

Blumhouse (the producers behind Get Out and The Purge) has teamed up with Hulu for a horror anthology series. A new episode of Into the Dark will drop the first Friday every month, and each episode will be feature-length. That means Blumhouse is essentially promising a horror movie of the month club. The first episode is set on Halloween and focuses on a hitman who carries around the body of one of his victims as a “costume.”

Richard Cartwright—ABC. Constance Wu and Randall Park in Fresh Off the Boat

Fresh Off the Boat

Oct. 5 on ABC

Fresh off Crazy Rich Asians, Constance Wu returns to the 90s set sitcom to play opposite Randall Park. Even heading into its fifth season, Fresh Off the Boat remains one of the most consistently funny comedies on TV, and Wu’s rising star power will hopefully bring even more viewers to the worthy show.

The Romanoffs

Oct. 12 on Amazon

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner premieres a new anthology series with a star-studded cast that includes Amanda Peet, Aaron Eckhart, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Hendricks, Corey Stoll and John Slattery. Each episode will feature a different story and different cast of characters. The one uniting theme: Many of the characters believe themselves to be descended from the Russian royal family, the Romanoffs. Talk about delusions of grandeur.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Oct. 12 on The CW

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend enters its fourth and final season this fall. The show has tackled issues like mental health and feminism with hilarious and sharp musical numbers. If neither jazz hands nor searing social commentary intrigues you, then check out the show because it’s an engrossing love triangle plot that never loses steam.

Camping

Oct. 14 on HBO

Girls creators Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner adapt a British television series about a couple that celebrates the husband’s 45th birthday by planning a camping trip with a group of friends. Things inevitably go awry. Jennifer Garner hasn’t starred in a TV series since Alias and her welcome return will be bolstered by the talented David Tennent.

Charmed is getting a reboot from creators who previously wrote for Greek and Jane the Virgin. This version will feature a multiracial family (they share a mother, but each of the three witch sisters have different fathers) and a lesbian main character. The pilot episodes, which aired at Comic Con, also implied that the three witches earned their powers to fight the patriarchy at this moment because the “weakest man” had taken over the office of president.

The revival of Roseanne was cancelled after its eponymous star made racist comments on social media earlier this year. But some of her family members are remaining on the air. ABC confirmed that a Roseanne spinoff starring Laurie Metcalfe as Jackie, John Goodman as Dan and Sara Gilbert as Darlene will air this fall. ABC executives have said the show will deal with a number of the same thematic issues, including financial struggles, but they have remained mum on how the show will explain the character of Roseanne’s absence from the series.

Black-ish continues to thrive on ABC even as it tackles difficult personal issues like the ups and downs of the relationship between Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) and Dre (Anthony Anderson). You may cry as much as you laugh watching this show. But Black-ish was the only network show nominated for a Best Comedy Emmy this year in part because of its unflinching effort to tackle issues of race and gender on a consistent basis.

This isn’t your older sister’s Sabrina. This Sabrina was conjured up by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who penned the dark comic book upon which this new Netflix series is based. He’s also responsible for the CW’s Riverdale, and Aguirre-Sacasa’s Sabrina is as dark, angsty, and dangerous as the characters on that breakout teen drama. Mad Men‘s Kiernan Shipka plays the half-witch torn between her human friends and her mystical calling. And don’t worry: Salem the cat is there to help her decide whether to worship Satan or fight him.

At Comic-Con, the writers acknowledged that time travel could be more fraught for a woman visiting time periods where women had little independence. While shows of yesteryear might have dreamily ignored those inconveniences, Whittaker has promised the show will tackle the historical repression of women head-on.

Homecoming

Nov. 2 on Amazon

Julia Roberts makes her debut as the lead character in a television series with Homecoming, a psychological thriller based on the popular fictional podcast of the same name. Roberts plays a caseworker who tries to help a soldier reintegrate into civilian life. Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail lends his eerie aesthetic to the episodes as director.

Ben Stiller directs all episodes of the limited series and will presumably infuse some humor into this rather dark story.

Izod to Expand to Europe This Fall

Izod has set its sights on Europe.
Beginning this fall, the venerable sportswear brand owned by PVH Corp. will expand into Spain, Germany, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.
This marks a return to the Continent for a brand that actually traces its history to London in the Thirties. That is when American businessman Vincent dePaul Draddy, while on vacation in the U.K., stumbled across Jack Izod’s bespoke tailoring boutique and purchased the rights to the name. It was initially called Izod of London.
From 1952 to 1993, Lacoste, the French brand founded by tennis great Rene Lacoste, was licensed to Izod and the polo shirts with the alligator logo were known as Izod Lacoste. After they parted ways, Lacoste retained its alligator logo and went more upscale while Izod employed a crest and was more moderately priced.
The Izod collection that will be sold in Europe will be the same classic American lifestyle pieces that are offered in the U.S. That includes shirts, polos, T-shirts, sweaters, heavyweight knits, pants, denim and outerwear.
“When looking to expand the presence of our classic Izod brand globally, we saw great opportunity in Europe,” said Ken Duane, chief executive officer of heritage brands for PVH.
Currently, Izod is only sold outside

Your Fall 2018 Forecast

Horoscopes FW 2018

Aries | Fire Sign

We’d advise you to stay grounded this fall Aries but we know you – and whatever we say you’ll do the opposite. So on that note, take everything we say as the mildest of suggestions. We’ve chosen the TAZE for two reasons: A) To maintain your #flawless style & shine B) To promote less stomp, more swagger.  Patience is not your strength and you don’t suffer fools gladly. But what is a fool but a potential friend in disguise? Adopting a softer stance doesn’t mean losing traction. It is not one or the other.

 

 

Taurus | Earth Sign

Fall/Winter 18 is a time of focus for you Taurus. Being the determined individual you are, you always have your eye on the prize.  But focus is something that is fleeting these days for all. Dare we say “focus” is on the endangered species list. Instead of thinking, “I don’t have time” – ask yourself “Where is my time going?” Track it.  And reflect if that is truly where you want to use it. CASEY is your co-pilot for the reworking of your calendar both personal and professional as it expands once you eliminate anything that doesn’t elevate you.

 

 

Gemini | Air Sign

This season Gemini, we want you to loosen up just a touch. We’ve analyzed your approach, and there isn’t much to critique but if we may be so bold, you are not fulfilling your potential. Is it because you are nervous of the outcome? Worried about this or that. Maybe you need a reminder of your own courage. The BRAVE MINI is here for back up, support and a reminder that bravery in small doses has a the ability to transform your life.

 

 

Cancer | Water

Cancers are notorious for not being able to let go. So we are giving you a push this fall with the PARK. With both arms/hands free, you’ll wonder at first what to cling to – we (obviously) have a few suggestions. Take hold of your intuition. Emotions come and go but let that inner voice be your guiding light through an unpredictable (that doesn’t mean bad) couple of months ahead.  And if you stumble, well you’ve got both hands free to catch you.

 

 

Leo | Fire Sign

LEO’s are known for their manes. But what exactly is in that hair? Pride. Some loose judgements. A 35-page manual (for others) on how to conduct any and every possible task. Needless to say, LEO you could stand to lighten that load. It’s time for a chop. Put away the scissors but metaphorically speaking it’s time to cut away what’s dragging you down and not serving you. Time to focus on stoking your inner fire. Because for LEO’s even in the darkest days – that flame of hope is burning. Go use it for good. And without all that extra baggage- you’re good girl with just a mini.

 

 

Virgo | Earth

In an attempt to change our ways, we often go too far.  We don’t recognize that baby steps as more important foundation buildings to get genuine, real-time change that lasts. VIRGO’s in particular need a road map and without it, they feel insecure.  This fall, we are meeting you in the middle VIRGO to hold your hand. Known for your intelligence and analytical approach, prepare for a guided-free stroll through life. Let go of what’s expected or how it’s to be done, and learn something about the way it could be and what that means to you. INVER is your security blanket along the way, because even on the road not taken – a VIRGO goes it organized.

 

 

Libra | Air

This season LIBRA, we ask of you to do a mental flip. Before you pursue pharmaceuticals – let’s clarify. The areas of your life that you initially sought to play it safe – don’t. The areas where you were previously wishy-washy, make some strategic choices that are all your own. Being easy-going is a wonderful trait but life isn’t always a river to float like a leaf down. This fall, be the rock that splits the stream in places you’ve neglected and the universe has been calling you (loudly) to step up.  LARA by your side, this autumn take things to the next level by making the choice to.

 

 

Scorpio | Water

Scorpio there’s a bitter sweet truth we’re delivering – the biggest thing holding you back is you.  You have a tendency to get in your own head and by doing so, create a reality that isn’t… well reality. This fall, give yourself the sweet relief of a change in perspective. Get above the limitations of past experiences and your own mind. Try and release the tendency to be jealous or secretive and indulge your emotional side instead in the act of listening and active sharing. Sure, the STESSY will have you feeling taller but really it’s your spirit that will have expanded a few inches.

 

 

Sagittarius | Fire Sign

If you were revamping a brand or product what would you do? Would you throw out the baby with the bath water so to speak and get rid of all the great things and start fresh or would you thoughtfully consider what needs a tweak and what could be repackaged from weakness to strength? That’s what we ask of you this fall, SAG. You are not restless but rather a seeker. You are not irresponsible but rather a lover of freedom. Package yourself accordingly.  VIE, means life in French, and with nothing to hang on to – it lets you embrace it with both arms wide open. Take note. Very on brand.

 

 

Capricorn | Earth Sign

Oh Hello there Capricorn! Child of the earth. Do we have the prescription for you this fall: adventure.  Set aside your ambition and your discipline (not completely but at least on weekends and after 5pm). Take of your perma-adulting cap that says, every silver lining has a cloud exterior and every path leads to its predetermined destiny. What if it doesn’t? How do you know? You don’t. And there is only one way to prove you are right (or ahem, wrong) and that’s to dive right in. AVENA sees your storm cloud and says, “Meh, rain or shine – I’m here for the view.”

 

 

Aquarius | Air Sign

We need more you Aquarius. The world is crying out for humanitarians and though you are just one, don’t underestimate what one you can do. All the abundance of your friendliness, honesty and intellect can be channelled toward something that speaks to your deepest desires. No one should second guess kindness. Everyone should be a warrior for love. Of course, you know all these truths already. But this FW18, ESSEN in tow – you’ll live them like never before.

 

 

Pisces |  Water Sign

Intuition is more important than ever. We live in strange times where people have started to believe they are brands.  Truth is fractured across media platforms, personalities and perspectives. We don’t have time for our friends calls but we have 30 minutes to interact with our body-less followers. Are you still with us? Basically, being the intuitive soul you are – tap into this as compass for your life: where to invest your time, what feels like the truth to you and who is your tribe in real time.  Now grab the CALLA and go see them.

5 Mecha Anime That Will Make You Fall in Love With the Genre

The mecha genre has reached a level of ubiquity that only a few other anime genres have achieved. It’s why we get countless anime about giant robots hashing it out. Luckily, there are a few of these shows that stand out from the rest. So, here are the five best mecha anime to watch to fall in love with the genre.

DARLING in the FRANXX


best mecha anime Darling in the FranXX

One of this year’s biggest hits is the mecha anime series DARLING in the FRANXX. In a post-apocalyptic future, teenagers must fight enormous monsters using giant robots called FRANXX. However, when Hiro realizes he is unable to pilot one, he questions his own worth. But his doubts disappear when he meets Zero Two, a strange girl with horns.

Initially, the anime seems like your typical story about a teenage boy saving the day with his giant robot, but the series actually goes much deeper than that. It explores many adolescent themes, such as love and societal expectations. Its portrayal of interpersonal relationships will change viewers’ perceptions of the mecha genre.

Not to mention, the joint collaboration between Trigger, CloverWorks, and A-1 Pictures on the animation brings the mecha battles against the Klaxosaur to life. The pilots move with ease, resulting in jaw-dropping action sequences that are sure to satisfy everyone.

Neon Genesis Evangelion


best mecha anime Neon Genesis Evangelion

This list wouldn’t be complete without the series that revolutionized the anime industry, Neon Genesis Evangelion.

Hellbent on destroying humanity, the Angels’ arrival pushes mankind to the brink of extinction. As a result, the United Nations forms NERV to create Evangelion (EVA), giant robots capable of fighting these monsters. The organization’s director, Gendo Ikari, seeks compatible pilots to synchronize with the EVAs. One of those pilots is his 14-year-old son, Shinji. The series follows Shinji as he and the other pilots fight against these unstoppable Angels.

While opinions on Neon Genesis Evangelion’s main character, Shinji, may be split, it’s hard to ignore the series’ impact on the mecha genre. Its take on psychology, religion, and philosophy has elevated anime’s status around the world, generating widespread discussion on its themes and motifs. Neon Genesis Evangelion proved that mecha genre is much more than mindless robot battles.

Gurren Lagann


best mecha anime Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

Simon and Kamina live in an underground village called Jeeha. One day, while digging, Simon finds a robot head, which the duo dub “Lagann.” Immediately after their discovery, their village gets destroyed by a mecha piloted by a Beastman, a humanoid creature that hunts humans. Fighting the Beastman is Yoko, a gun-toting, badass woman. Using their new robot, Simon and Kamina fend off the attack.

With the sky now in plain view after the battle, the pair takes Yoko along with them to explore the surface. But they haven’t seen the last of the Beastmen. They’ll have to rely on their fighting spirits to survive and keep moving forward.

However, Gurren Lagann is more than just cool mecha battles in a wasteland. It’s the story of two “brothers,” Simon and Kamina, who uplift each other every step of the way. The series, with its colorful animation and inspirational speeches, takes the idea of believing in yourself to a whole new level.

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing


best mecha anime Mobile Suit Gundam Wing

No matter which Gundam adaptation you choose to watch, there’s no denying that the franchise is one of the best in the mecha anime genre. After all, there’s a reason it’s been around for almost 40 years. But if we had to choose one, it would be Mobile Suit Gundam Wing.

It’s AC (After Colony) 195, and five disaffected scientists are planning to take revenge against the tyrannical OZ military organization with the project Operation Meteor. The operation involves independently sending five teenage boys in advanced Mobile suits known as “Gundams” to destroy OZ.

Although the series premiered back in 1995, the action scenes are still amazing. Each Gundam has a unique set of weapons, capabilities, and fighting skills that reflect its respective pilot. No two battles are ever the same, as each young pilot brings something different to the table. Besides that, the series’s multiple viewpoints work together to create a deep narrative exploring various political themes.

The Big O


best mecha anime The Big O

Forty years ago, something happened in Paradigm City that erased everyone’s memories. Still, humanity continues to survive and even builds giant robots (called Megadeus) and monsters. The story follows Roger Smith, a negotiator who owns a Megadeus, his loyal and skilled butler, Norman Burg, and his human-like android assistant, R. Dorothy Wayneright. Together, they negotiate disputes between parties. But each case brings them closer to uncovering the truth about Paradigm City.

The Big O‘s classic, retro-futurism animation style elevates the series to a level rarely seen in mecha anime. In addition, the show not only features giant robots but also many elements from other genres, including mystery and action. You could say that this mecha series is anime’s answer to DC’s Batman, with Roger playing the role of the Dark Knight. In each episode, Roger and his allies try to solve the mysteries plaguing Paradigm City just as Bruce Wayne and Alfred do in Gotham City. If you’re looking for Batman with mechas, then this might be the anime for you.

Shanelle Nyasiase, Rianne van Rompaey and Vittoria Ceretti Star in Alexander McQueen’s Gorgeous Fall 2018 Campaign

Every season has its standout advertising campaign. Last season, it was Alexander McQueen that came out on top and now, with the unveiling of the Fall 2018 offering, the brand is set to steal the spotlight once again. Shanelle Nyasiase returns to the roster, joined by models Rianne van Rompaey and Vittoria Ceretti, for a San Francisco shoot with photographer Jamie Hawkesworth. The city’s various landmarks, including the Golden Gate Bridge and Coit Tower, contribute to the series of visually arresting images.

The moment the campaign dropped, our forum members were in awe. “Gorgeous Picture. The dress looks better than it did on the runway,” said LustforFashion.

“Ugh, I can already tell I will love this. Sarah Burton’s McQueen campaigns are a hundred times better than the actual clothes,” wrote dodencebt.

“That is FABULOUS! That picture is gallery worthy. The dress and the model are working together, one doesn’t outshine the other and that’s very difficult with such an amazing background,” said GivenchyHomme.

In agreement over how wonderful everything looked was Benn98. “Love each and every shot, but that image of Shanelle is astounding! This campaign, along with the last one, really cements the idea of Jamie as a fashion photographer for me. You can see he’s trying to innovate as opposed to just skating by on his trademark tint,” he commented.

“This campaign is so gorgeous. 10 out of 10. I will frame the first picture with Shanelle, that’s pure art. The dress, the pose, the location, and the composition are so perfect. They nailed it,” complemented Perickles.

“Stunning campaign I love how different each model is,” Urban Stylin admired.

Zposen felt the same way: “Beautiful campaign! All three girls brought something unique and mesmerizing to it.”

Forum member dontbeadrag liked what he saw too, adding, “Sarah Burton always has the best campaigns. Glam, expensive and not pretentious.”

Isabel Marant’s Fall 2018 Campaign Is ‘So Isabel Marant It Hurts’

Our forum members practically begged Isabel Marant to switch up her casting last season after Anna Ewers appeared in her third consecutive campaign for the quintessential French fashion label. Marant must have heard our cries, adding model Vittoria Ceretti to star alongside Ewers for the Fall 2018 campaign (praise the fashion gods above). Welcoming back photographer Juergen Teller, the blonde and brunette twosome were photographed on location at the conceptual Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and styled by French Vogue‘s Geraldine Saglio.

Did the change in casting manage to impress our forum members, though? “Very simple and cool. It doesn’t look too Photoshopped. The models are cool, I like Anna and they look natural. I approve of this campaign,” shared Perickles upon checking out the images.

“It’s really nothing special but I appreciate the simplicity and it will look nice in magazines,” Valentine27 added.

“I like it just because it’s so Isabel Marant that it hurts! The girls and even the choice of location are totally Isabel Marant! This is exactly the type of place where you can imagine seeing an IM woman,” pointed out Lola701.

Not everyone was so forthcoming. “Great shots, boring cast,” snapped forum member anlabe32.

“For me, it’s the opposite, the only one I like is the second shot of Anna but I second you its pretty dull,” replied badgalcrush.

Say What Now? Would-Be Robber Fall Throughs Convenience Store Ceiling, Gets Caught [Video]

Just because you may have seen something in an action movie, doesn’t always mean the same will work in real life.

Two would-be robbers found out the hard way.

via TMZ:

Where: Alberta, Canada
When: Earlier this week
Why: Two robbery suspects — a man and a woman — at a convenience store were attempting to flee from a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer.

Long story short … the cop busts out his taser to take down the guy. Meanwhile, his female friend tries to make a clean escape by running into the stockroom and climbing through the ceiling — y’know, ‘Mission: Impossible’ style. She almost made it. Almost.

This entire caper was captured by the store’s surveillance cameras. Thank God.

Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede Come Together for Alberta Ferretti’s Fall 2018 Campaign

Alberta Ferretti likes to keep us guessing when it comes to its advertising campaigns, never settling for a tried and tested formula. The Italian fashion label brought on photographer Steven Meisel for the Spring 2017 campaign, Tim Walker for Fall 2017 and Mario Sorrenti for Spring 2018. This season, it’s David Sims capturing the brand’s Fall 2018 campaign in his London studio with Vogue Paris fashion director Aleksandra Woroniecka on styling duties (replacing Carine Roitfeld). Gone is last season’s cast too, in favor of models Edie Campbell and Liya Kebede, starring in the dark and moody series of images.

Members of our forums were quick to sound off on the campaign. “Not surprised it looks so Vogue Paris since Aleksandra Woroniecka is fashion director at VP! I guess she brings some easiness and a sense of effortless French style to the brand. I like it,” approved elle_gb.

“I love it, very Vogue Paris,” echoed GERGIN.

“Reminds me way too much of VP, but Liya’s shot looks great,” Benn98 noted.

“Don’t know why but it’s giving me Isabel Marant vibes,” pointed out 333101. “But I’m pleased Liya is part of the cast!”

Forum member vetements also saw some hints of Isabel Marant. “Alberta Ferretti to me is just another pretty clothing brand that is wearable but this campaign is shot so beautifully it actually made me took notice, guess that’s how a successful campaign should be. It also gave me Isabel Marant vibes, I think probably those knee-high boots,” he said.

Perickles also showed Liya some love, writing, “Very nice! I love Liya Kebede’s shots, they look so retro and chic at the same time. Her hair and dark eyes are very intense.”

“Love Liya’s shot,” raved LustforFashion.
