Smiley with Sibling

Smiley is one of those brands that even if you've never heard the name you will most certainly recognize the logo. For ss10 hey have teamed up with Knitwear designers Sibling to create a 6 piece menswear collection. Each piece will of course feature the Smiley logo and will come in an array of different styles. I heard that these include an intarsia cotton sports vest covered in sequins and an amazing jumper knitted with crystal cup chain which has been sponsored by Swarovski. The collection will be shown this September at London Fashion Week as part of a presentation provided by SIBLING...

We don't get to see much menswear during London Fashion Week so I'm very excited about this collaboration.

Dimitri Stavrou - A sartorial king

Way back in January I wrote a post about the London College of Fashion MA graduate show and mentioned that Dimitri Stavrou would be one to keep an eye out for. Well, now I have some images for you all to see exactly how amazing his work is.

He even caught the attention of boot makers Dr Martins and has done a collaboration with them to coincide with his collection...

Dimitris' attention to detail and creative vision truly are inspiring. I was able to try on some of his pieces and believe me when I say never has a jacket made me feel so good about my body. The fits are immaculate.

I expect Dimitrs' future to be bright and shiny and extremely well tailored.

Bentley Mulsanne Unveiled

For the past 3 months Bentley have been torturing me with the mere thought of this car but finally it has been revealed. The Mulsanne is a remake of the 1980's classic which at the time was the basis for all Bentley models until the 1998 introduction of the Arnarge.

Here it is...

It's a beautiful beast and I think it may just replace the Arnarge as my favorite of the Bentley motors. There is no word on pricing as of yet however the car is due for release by the 3 quarter of 2010.

Mat & Nat Kenner bag

Today I fell in love with another bag. It's called Kenner and it's made by Mat&Nat who are a very special brand. Special because their products are made in a special way.

At first glance you'd think that this bag was just made from regular felt with regular leather accents but this is not the case. Mat&Nat make all of their bags out of recycled water bottles.

Yes, this bag is made of plastic.

I don't know what kind of magic they use to turn plastic into felt, leather and suede but it works and it looks great.

Get the Kenner for £175 from Mat&Nat

Diesel a/w10

This autumn Diesel launches their "Flash For Fun" which basically glows in the dark. Check it out...

Every piece has had some sort of U.V treatment, it's a very "work by day but at night we play" mentality to fashion and I love it.

Jason of Beverly Hills

It's official, I am obsessed with Jason of Beverly Hills. This is my 3rd post on his work and all in the space of a 2 weeks. The guy is a genius. You've already seen the Oops necklace he did for Chris Brown and yesterday I showed you the remote control Lamborghini necklace he did for Soulja Boy. Now if you look closely at yesterdays picture you'll see Soulja boy is wearing a ring that appears to have a purple hue to it.

Well this is that ring...

Jason of Beverly Hills at The Glamorous ManI'm guessing it looked like that because of the lighting but this 18k white gold (with a special black overlay) and ruby ring is absolutely amazing. Perfect in size, perfect in design. There really is nothing about it that I don't love.

But then again, it is by Jason of Beverly Hills. I think he may just replace De Grisogon as my all time favourite. His new website launches today so we'll have to see what else he has in store.

Soulja Boy Tell'em

People seem to throw a lot of shade in the direction of Soulja boy, I think he's great. Excellent businesses man, creative musician and an all round fun guy. I've heard people say that he killed hip-hop with his nursery rhyme rap songs, they call his music childish and distasteful but what people forget is that when he first popped on the scene, he was a child. What more did people expect from a 17 year old? Well now that he is 19 nothing has changed. Even his jewellery collection reflects his youthful nature.

What do you see?

Soulja Boy Jewellery at The Glamorous Man
Yes...That is a remote controlled diomond encrusted Lamborghini pendant. Created for the rapper by the tallented Jason of Beverly Hills who you may remember is responsible for Chris Browns Oops necklace. When not being worn as a necklace it can be driven around till ones heart is content.


Also note the amazingness of his rings. I just thought I would point that out.
