Tinie Tempah @ The London Collections: Men Autumn/Winter 2014

Tinie Tempah FW

As one of the British Fashion Council’s style ambassadors, rapper Tinie Tempah has been front row at nearly every fashion show during Men’s London Collections this week.

Astrid Andersen’s Fall 2014 Show: With this Jonathan Saunders ombre suit, the rapper gave up his preferred loafers for a more contemporary spin, adding crisp white sneakers on this occasion.

Richard James Fall 2014 Show: Looking like his parents are about to send him off to his first day at school, Tinie worked a preppy look, wearing a grey suit with a maroon dotted tie with brown shoes.

Rake Fall 2014 Show: Blue was the colour on this occasion, with Tinie opting for a patterned double-breasted suit and tie with rolled-up jeans and his favourite black loafers.

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Menswear Show

Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 Menswear Show

The Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 menswear show was held at Kensington Gardens earlier today (January 8) in London, with a host of London IT boys taking to the red carpet and a few ladies checking out the menswear show too.

Paloma Faith: As you know, I have a huge style crush on Paloma, and I’m delighted to see her working a hot-pink Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 lace top and skirt styled with an oversized baby-blue coat and silver accessories. Yes, it’s not quite season appropriate, but I’m so captivated by these pastel hues and complementary pink lip that the rules will go out the window on this occasion.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper has been front and centre at nearly every show during Men’s Collection week. Having attended the womenswear Spring 2014 show back in September, it’s no surprise to see fashion IT boy front row at this show. He wore a Del-Boy-inspired olive Burberry coat with a fur collar over his grey suit styled with brown monk-strap shoes.

Suki Waterhouse: Working a more season-appropriate look, the model wore a Burberry maroon suit featuring black lapels, which she styled with lace-up boots and a cream wool coat. Season appropriate? Yes. Likely to make my heart skip several beats like Paloma? Sadly, no but I still love the look.

2013 British Fashion Awards Menswear Roundup

2013 British Fashion Awards Menswear Roundup

There were many other well-dressed men joining Harry Styles and a host of lovely ladies at the 2013 British Fashion Awards yesterday evening.

Nick Grimshaw: The radio presenter is always well turned out without looking like he tried too hard. On this occasion he donned an eggplant velvet Richard James blazer with a blue shirt, navy tie and what appear to be jeans.

Tinie Tempah: Also donning a dickie-bow tie, Tinie wore a Burberry suit consisting of a rich charcoal-grey velvet suit and tapered pants which just grazed his ankles. Jimmy Choo ‘Mayfair’ shoes completed his look.

Oliver Cheshire: Opting not to go the velvet-suit route, the British model with chiseled cheekbones wore a classic shawl-collar tuxedo, also styled with a bow tie and an additional polka-dot scarf and white pocket square to up the ante of his incredibly well-turned-out look.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear 8 Nov

Here’s a quick roundup of some of the handsome fellas taking to the red carpet yesterday evening.

Tinie Tempah: The birthday boy attended the Beats by Dre event, which doubled up as his ‘Demonstration’ album launch party in London. Perhaps mindful of the fact that some of you have grown tired of the cropped pants, or perhaps because temperatures are dropping swiftly, he opted to wear regular pants on this occasion. I just love the tan wool blazer. This is yet another dapper Dolce & Gabbana look.

David Beckham: The handsome former footballer joined Kylie Minogue on the red carpet for the GQ Men of the Year Awards in Berlin, Germany looking very dapper in his black suit with a Remembrance Day red poppy proudly pinned to his lapel. “Like no other athlete, David Beckham represents style and fashion influence. With his trendsetting and sometimes daring appearances he has created a bridge between the world of design, models and photographers, and the world of world-class sports, and brought glamour back to a male sport”, said José Redondo-Vega, editor-in-chief of GQ Germany.

Gerard Butler: The Scottish actor attended the Ermenegildo Zegna global store opening hosted by Gildo Zegna and Stefano Pilati in Beverly Hills, California yesterday evening. Looking slick in a blue two-button suit, I love the contrasting black tie and blue shoes. Men so often stick to black.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Let’s hear it for the boys once again.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper, who turned 25 today, joined a host of lovely ladies and Idris Elba on the red carpet for the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year awards on Tuesday. He was, of course, wearing his favourite brand Dolce & Gabbana, wearing a three-piece suit including a velvet blazer and vest which had a festive cheer to it. The look packed in plenty of his signatures: bow tie, black-frame glasses, cropped trousers and loafers.

Zachary Quinto: For the Guggenheim International Gala, the ‘Star Trek’ actor donned a Dior Homme grey wool micro-check two-button small-notch-lapel blazer styled with a white cotton button-down shirt, washed ‘Second Round’ Dior Homme denim jeans, and black leather derbies. The blazer confuses me here.

Will Forte: The handsome actor took to the red carpet in New York City last night wearing a grey Simon Spurr suit with a teal-blue tie for the ‘Nebraska’ screening at the Paris Theater.

Dan Stevens: The British actor also attended the Guggenheim International Gala, sporting a dressed-down look. The difference is his look has considerably more finesse than Zachary’s.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

From Scotland to England, the guys suited up in style for a round of red carpets this past weekend.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper was appropriately dressed in a trendy-dapper Dolce & Gabbana black tux and a perfect bow tie, as he pointed out his Best Hip Hop/Grime MOBO Award at the 18th anniversary MOBO Awards at the Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland on Saturday. The loafers, worn sans socks, added another shot of attitude.

Tom Hiddleston: At Friday’s ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’ London premiere during the 57th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon West End, the British actor walked the line between bold and basic in an Alexander McQueen black velvet shawl collar dinner jacket, paired with a white evening shirt, skinny black tie, black trousers and black patent shoes.

Colin Farrell: The actor joined Ruth Wilson at the ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ closing night gala premiere, held during the 57th BFI London Film Festival at Odeon Leicester Square last night. He tempered his edgy persona with a more clean-cut look featuring a dark, three-piece Dolce & Gabbana pinstripe number.

Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 Menswear Front Row

Burberry Prorsum Menswear

After a decade in Milan, British designer Christopher Bailey moved the Burberry Prorsum Menswear show back to home turf, as he sent a set of best-dressed boys down the Spring 2014 runway today at Kensington Gardens in London, England. An eclectic group was seated front row, with many rocking their own interpretations of the brand.

Douglas Booth: The young English actor turned on his boyish charm with this casual Burberry ensemble, as he rolled up the sleeves of his denim-blue blazer. The floral-print, cerulean-blue shirt echoed some of the brighter hues seen on the runway, but his dark, baggy pants and unpolished black lace-up shoes brought down the look a bit.

Serena Williams: The tennis ace simultaneously flaunted and covered her curves in top-to-toe Burberry, donning a Burberry London fuchsia body-con minidress mixed with a classic stone-coloured trench. She styled the look with animal-print, calfskin T-bar sandals and a tote bag, covered in black hearts. A pulled-back ‘do, rather than her super-long locks, may have delivered a more polished effect.

Tinie Tempah: The British rapper also got in touch with his animal instincts with a Burberry giraffe-print, black-and-white shirt worn with the brand’s black cropped leg pants and shiny patent shoes. The bold black frames of his glasses added another dose of cool factor to his standout entrance.
