CHECKMATE !!

CHECKMATE !!

Louis Vuitton has done it again! The check board trend is back and celebrities are absolutely loving it. Vuitton’s designer, the ever-brilliant Marc Jacobs, gave the audience a runway experience extraordinaire this spring.  Beautiful models descended from escalators onto a yellow-white checkered runway. It was like getting a glimpse of what this world could actually look like; a vision of pure and peaceful perfection. The perfect balance between playful elegance and an edgy retro-vibe.

I am completely smitten with the colour palet of black and white with touches of bright yellow. It’s cheeky and girly, but yet so feminine and sexy. There are no words to describe Marc Jacobs’ brilliant mind. The things he designs aren’t clothes. Damn, it’s not even fashion! It is a vision. On Life, on love, on liberty.

What I’m trying to say is: CHECK out these clothes and run to the stores to start your very own eye-popping game of CHECKERS!

men fashion

A good friend of mine asked me to write a post on men’s fashion. Who am I to decline such a request? According to friend X the average man doesn’t seem to realise that there are better (much much better!) looks out there than the oh so typical jeans-t-shirt-sneakers look. I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I think my friend has a really good point!

The average male student at my university looks like this:
• blue/grey/black jeans: DULL!
• t-shirt with cliché print: DRAB!
• Superdry or Abercrombie & Fitch sweater: BORING!
• Pair of worn out All Stars: YAAAAAAWN!

Seriously guys! Can’t you see that is just the most boring, uninteresting and lifeless look EVER! It is basically a whole lot of nothing! Am I being harsh? Well, I’m sorry if I offended you, but sometimes the truth needs to be told! Deal with it!

However, Fashion Food and Flirts wouldn’t be Fashion,Food and Flirts, if I didn’t have some great tips for all of you. Let’s pimp your wardrobe, shall we? 🙂
The holidays are coming up. The perfect time to invest in some classy and festive clothes, you can actually wear every single day of the year. Brace yourselves fellas, we are going to make real gentlemen out of you!
A suit is the epitome of style and elegance. It is perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve but the individual pieces can also be worn all year round. Why don’t you wear a waistcoat on top of your t-shirt or jumper? Or a suit jacket? It can transform something really mundane into something extraordinarily edgy!

It’s all about colour!

Question: Are most men colourblind? Because, hellooooo, there are actually more colours on this planet beside grey, blue and black.
This burgundy red suit for instance. Classy, elegant and drop dead gorgeous!men fashion 3

Do you want to touch me?

Mix and match various types of fabrics that beg to be touched! What could be more arousing than a soft velvet jacket?men fashion2µ

Think Print!

Baroque, checkers, psychedelic colourblocking or leopard print (yes, leopard print!) As long as it’s bold, big and beautiful!
