#1939 ACNE’s kitschy, incorrectly-labelled tourist sweaters are all kinds of awesome

acnefallcollection5

Photos: The Fashionisto Due in no small part to budgetary constraints (and the fact that my daily wardrobe is ascetic to say the least), I don’t often watch the menswear shows and think, ‘I am going to get me one of those shirts, suits or Hermes emerald green suede henley tees.’ However, when a friend showed me ACNE’s postcard sweaters from the Fall 2011 collection, I decided that in this case, the forbidden fruit must be tasted. I’m obsessed. It’s a combination of the navy blue, maroon and grey marle colourways; the slim, cropped shape; and the amazingly kitschy, incorrectly-labelled

#390 Forget chicken of the sea, it’s all NZ labels for Pete’s babes Ashlee

Grazia Once again on the topic of celebrity endorsements, my main man Pete Wentz and his wife Ashlee Simpson were in Sydney last week for the Australian MTV music awards. According to Grazia, Ash needed a dress for the awards (didn’t her mother ever tell her to come prepared?), so she headed to Bondi boutique Ourmishmash for a last minute dash shop. While she was there she picked up an Ellery dress (above) that she wore to the party, and a few pieces from New Zealand designers twentysevennames and Stolen Girlfriends Club (pics of what she bought after the jump).

#272 Des Rusk pulls the plug on label – exclusive interview

des_rusk_portrait-5B1-5D

To be announced tomorrow morning (NZ time): NZ designer Des Rusk will be shuttering his eponymous semi-tailored menswear label at the end of the current summer season.

In an interesting twist of fate, after Barkers and Des Rusk ended their agreement, Barkers signed a deal to exclusively distribute Rusk’s previous employer

#2608 My Picks From Milan, Day 1

isaac-likes-ermenegildo-zegna

Ever since Stefano Pilati came on board at Ermenegildo Zegna and moved the show venue away from the company headquarters on Via Savona over to a building on the exact opposite side of the city from my hotel, I never fail to arrive insanely late and run in the door huffing and puffing and drenched in sweat just as the lights are coming up and the first model is walking out on the runway. But it’s well worth the sprint: Pilati does what few menswear designers even attempt, and delivers a kind of soft-yet-complex elegance each season.

#2745 So You Found Out Your Man Is On Tinder

Warren Beatty

Anon asks: I’ve been seeing this guy for about two months very seriously but never brought up exclusivity (but it was assumed). Anyway my friend saw that he’s active on Tinder. I’m going to bring it up with him — not in an accusing way — but more so I can know what kind of relationship we’re in. Is there a way to ask a guy you’ve been seeing that you want to be exclusive without freaking him out? It doesn’t mean we have to label it boyfriend and girlfriend yet but I just want to know. I also don’t know what I can do to make him commit.

Hey, gidday mate. Oy vey. This is the kind of question that makes me worry about this modern world of ours.
