many thanks!

would you have any more suggestions specifically for mens fashion?

--- Original message by velvetant on Aug 30, 2004 06:59 AM

it depends on what suggestions you're interested in - men's fashion magazine (some aren't in english though), or trends.

for the second, you'll have to wait a bit as i'm going to be busy whole month of september covering the men and women's collection in europe and can give you some insight into trends. you'll just have to specify what you're interested in for me to get a bearing of your taste.

i've been covering men's fashion for years, and it's interesting how these days, men are getting more educated not only in clothing lines - and what they really like and appreciate - but there's significant and obviously growing interest as well in grooming lines.

intresting....

i suppose men are paying more interest in Fashion due to an incease in coverage via certain sectors

i find trends particularly in the case of menswear prove hard to correlate

. In my opinion it appears to live without any running aesthetic which may underpin each season

I am intrested to learn more on your views

with regards to men's magazine's

i know of

self service, id, dazed, vogue hommes perhaps this may give you an insight to what i may be possibly intrested in.

do you work for any magazine in particular?

gosh, and just when i get to your post, it's the start of the autumn-winter collection come end january!

the skin and cosmetic industry are focusing on men and they've started to do this since the introduction of a forum on men and youth/young adult in paris a year ago during the first cosmeeting exhibition in paris (september 2003). since then, the focus on men has started getting stronger.

trouble is, market and culture conditioning where fashion and trends are concerned, has always been hitting on women, and i always assumed it was because we ladies are really easy to manipulate when it comes to telling us that clothes and makeup is what makes us attractive to men.

you don't hear it said that clothes and makeup draw women to men though, i mean, hip hop clothes where the denim crotch fall to the level of knees, where hair style get hidden under baseball and skull caps, where guys think they're made up with a slather of vaseline on their lips for cold winters, where sneakers and shoes and having like gadzillion of them from vintage to the latest releases ... it's not really what draw women to men, come on?!

women adore men not for clothes, makeup (i'm even tempted by gaultier's line for men - they have the right shade of neutral!) or even aftershave. so clothes on men, it's something hard to recommend unless you know the persona of the guy.

i like men's lines but tend to go more for cut. i'm always on the lookout for a certain "silhouette", not too broad on the shoulder or too v-cut with jackets, something that's understated, yet the flow works and moves beautifully, and you can only check that out when you touch and feel and let a guy with great proportion and body try the stuff out.

i've had to outfit a guy recently from the fall/winter collection of the ... of all brands ... chinese arts and crafts (cac) label, but wow, were they great stuff, and this amazing cashmere chinese padded coat with fur neck lining in dark brown with embroidered cuffs (US$110 - major steal!) and outstanding linen pants were incredible on him. when he got to paris, his friends were all asking him where he got the jacket.

suits are hard, but it gets super difficult when you check streetwear and smart casuals. it takes a certain "panache" for a guy to carry some stuff off, and it takes a guy knowing himself and what he likes on him, from something serious in suits and business-wear, formal wear, casual, club, lounge, how he can identify a look that works for him in different setting.

a man has to probably have a talented and fashion-conscious woman or develop a sensitiveness and an "eye" for what looks right for him. frankly, it's hard for a guy to follow what's in "fashion" as most men don't think much of fashion. they're usually just tee-shirt and denim creatures.

i work on what is known as "intergrated communication", but focus more on lifestyle television production and magazine.

well it's pretty sad how all the most "brilliant" minds of the network agencies could come up with during a whole decade was that you could use the same pay-off in print ads and tv-spots, and call it "integrated"...

other overused marcom terms (besides 'marcom' itself) that makes my ear go sore:

"# degrees" - to illustrate holistic view (ie 360° marketing)

"interaction" - used in a non-digital context, ie "customer interaction"

"positioning" - al ries deserves a painful death

"integrated" - so you're doing final arts for procter&gamble customer magazines?

"design systems/platforms" - home made theories by people who didn't finish high school

"brand architecture" - see above (but grad school)

"storytelling" - if i hear another native tribes analogy, i'll die

"cross cultural" - "our creative director in london force us to run his ads in kuala lumpur"

"creative, fresh-thinking" - "see you at Cannes Lions. My award-winning client pay the drinks"

"guerilla" - not a penny but I still want to sleep with the traffic girls from DDB in Cannes

"strategic design" - like what, is there anyone claiming to do non-strategic design?

"strategic" may be the best one of the lot. i once ran into a "strategic trade marketing agency". strategic meant they read the fucking brief before they did their sad little shelf stands and coupons

The quality of Vogue Homme editorials has been bad lately..

The brands that they place the most coverage on are quite boring.

i'm not into vogue homme, i receive it like i do a pile of other men's magazine from around europe and the world. i prefer to check the shows out, meet the designers and see the collection up close and personal. that's when i get to appreciate a brand and designer more. i hardly look at any magazines these days unless i'm on the plane or train - then it's like, hmmm, that scent wasn't that fabulous when i tested it; that ad's awful (i can't get over sephora's poster ad this season, it's like the decapitated head of this white persian cat on the head of this model sporting pink hair and a tiara ... makes me think, riiiiggghttt ... so, are we to assume the cat bled pink blood into her hair?! - where's the rest of its body?? or ... how the hell is it hanging on to that girl's head with the tiara??)... it does suck to criticize more than admire. icon_smile_big.gif

on hong kong island, china resources building, wanchai area, up the escalator one floor, and to your left, chinese arts and crafts, it's really well designed and looks high-end, so don't get intimidated by the decor, just go in and ask the sales ladies there to show you their special discount winter jackets for men. they'll pull you a few and bring you over to the racks that have the discounts. they usually do a periodic major discount for some special items. the original price of the jacket before it was reduced to US$110, was US$350.
