golden girls and grooms

Posted on: Tuesday, May 11, 2010

shoes AMALIE by Sophie Gittins
Liv is a golden girl.
She just fell for this hot heels by Sophie Gittins.
This design drew from the rules applied by the Wiener Werkstätte – Graphic simplification of architectural shapes. The palette derives from the heavy use of black/gold by the movement.
Are there any golden guys/grooms to be out there?
The Gold Hexagon Printed Shoes is a Collaboration piece between Koji Horigome and creator Himbad.
These shoes of art are printed &made by hand in Shoreditch, London.

P.S: Did I mention I wanna have an all golden bathroom?

suits you!

More, more , more London goodness:
The London based fashion label Social Suicide
The winter 2009 collection, entitled ”Dictators of Fashion”, draws style and structural inspiration from a series of 20th Century military and political heroes and tyrants. Classy!
Day suits in pure wool flannels and evening wear in super 120’s wool cashmere, trimmed and lined in silk. Every piece, as ever, hand made by tailors.

Happy Easter! What are you up to?
Liv will be in London for room&job hunting next week!
So now I am mainly planning and preparing,
as well as having some dog and family time this weekend.

nudism: for him and for her

Posted on: Wednesday, March 31, 2010


Liv loves this two stylish & nudist pieces.

Both via Epaulet my favorite little neighbourhood boutique back in my NYC days. (sigh!)
Their Epaulet ties and bowties are handmade in Manhattan. Each piece goes through seven individual steps before its completed. Their silks are woven and printed in Italy, and all of their cottons are produced in the United States.

The next time you say that you better mean it…

incredibly cool “engagement” rings by Maison Martin Margiela via oki-ni
…and you better have a ring ; )
Here we are, in the brave new world, where the ladies propose to their boyfriends.
I loved East Side Brides “ How to propose to your boyfriend” post.
If you haven’t read it already do it NOW here!
And then please come back here, if you got inspired because
Liv wants to suggest an incredible cool engagement ring for your boy.

Using brass and silver, the rings shown above are brushed for a worn appearance.
(alright I am biased, because I am a HUGE Margiela fan and the very hot suits on the site aren’t helping)

It’s Mens Fashion Week!
Liv likes Raf Simons collection a lot: review: here.
Perfect time to find rad grooms outfit inspirations.
The image above is showing an item by Michael Bastian.
What are your thoughts? Is a denim jacket acceptable to wear for the groom?
(hello, laid-back beach wedding!?)

If not for a wedding this still is a pretty cool item with its all american, wild wild west appeal.

rebellious rings

…Macha is about a quiet rebellion, not necessarily‘beautiful’, but not without nobility either, rough and warm-hearted and full of ripe character. It‘s witty, tenacious and defiant with an air of old fashioned peace…’

Oh yeah! You have to like a jewelry designer that describes her creations like that, right?
For me the pieces by Macha Jewelry look all really contemporary.
The way jewelry should look in 2010, if its not vintage.
I love that there are so many finds suitable for men.
Even outside the mens category on her website.
These stud signet rings for example or the big knot rings,
would make great unisex wedding bands.
And Liv especially likes the ones that combine silver and gold. For herself.

Uhm do you think I am writing too much about jewelry?

jazz for the groom

How rad are all those jazz shoes and hightops?
They come in mens and womens sizes and are designed in New York.
Carla Venticinque-Osborn & Aaron Osborn are not only designing shoes, check out their other projects and artworks.
I am always fascinated by artist- and creative couples who are working together.

Maybe that will become one topic for this blog!?

clip on the style

designs by Nixon

Lav recently got really excited about tie clips after watching a 50’s movie!
So I did a bit research and found this clean and contemporary beauties shown above, as well as a few rad vintage finds like this hammered copper one:
found here.
This classic gentlemens accessory can definitely complete a great groom outfit. Its been said you should wear it at an angle, but
a lot of people say its not suitable for younger men to wear it…
I don’t agree with that all. Its a tiny little piece of jewelry that is both practical and can look very stylish also with younger men.
I also don’t care about the angle. I saw a lot cool guys wearing it straight across, like here at The Satorialist or here in the NY Times.
Most of this how-to-wear-rules are bullshit anyway, don’t you think?
Go break the rules men, that’s what is most sexy anyway.

men should look like, well, men !

imeless Ready-to-Wear Shirts built of Our Bespoke Tradition
thats the new idea and strategy of the classic shirt label
Classic shirts in good quality, because as it says on their website:
Clothes should fit, fabrics should breathe and men should look like, well, men.
Called 1883, the line references the year of our founding—and recasts some of our more historic designs in timeless, new forms. Because, sometimes, charging ahead into the future is the best way to honor your past.

I totally agree. Mix it up with some wild stuff !
P.S: all the models on the pic sjown above are bloggers.

Lav is velvet…

…was the latest facebook state of my Lav.
The reason for that: He went for a little wintercoat shopping tour and
fell in love with a really cool velvet tuxedo jacket-
It was a really nice one.
Velvet can be so sexy.
It would also be a stunning fabric to wear as a groom.

What about you? Do you like velvet? Do you like velvet men?

Wolf men at Prada (click on image for reference)
diamonds are a GUYS best friend…
Prada recently jumped on the creepy animal mask trend, and I was gently reminded by my best friend in NYC
who loves wearing his wolf mask at parties. I MISS NYC! so bad. BUT:
London based design duo ORIA did great Wolf inspired jewelry for guys,
that would also make great groom accessories:

This collection is based on the Red Wolf (Canis rufus)
10% of our profits from the sale of these pieces will go to the IUCN Red List.

smart, sexy, and a little bit fabulous

Posted on: Saturday, September 12, 2009

Liv just discovered this menswearlabel: Commonwealth Utilities
Their website is stunning: there are replicas of the same man standing…
1 putting on a suit, and 2 taking of their suits. HOT!
Their clothes are just amazing, maybe because they are designing with
“the idea of making men smart, sexy, and a little bit fabulous.”
A cool little extra service they are offering on their website is that you can
“ask the concierge” about all fashion related questions you might have.

Anthony from Canada (a CSM graduate) and Richard from Australia met each other in London in 1995. The duo worked in London, and collaborated on many projects in London, New York and Italy. Anthony and Richard now have their own label Commonwealth Utilities, which is based in New York.
Smart, sexy, and a little bit fabulous!

…you can save money on the seating…
Aren’t these stunning? So so so freakin beautiful!
I recommend buying great fashion when it comes to your wedding dress, and the grooms suit and most definitely on stunning new (!) shoes for your wedding but you can save money on things like decorations that you can easily do simply but beautifully.
Even if I were a millionaire, I would always go for these rad old chairs.

Get excited…next week I will post a give-away….more soon.
