Menswear Trend Art Deco Shoulders

Prada Menswear FW AW 22 leather coat

Prada Menswear FW AW 22 leather coat tamara de lempicka husband

Raf Simons' latest menswear collection for Prada took a new direction for AW22 leading with the shoulders. The austere and strong shouldered leather coats are graphic and cartoony in their geometry. Raf Simons always does a good coat. Looking very villain-in-a-Gotham City/Art Deco-way, it brought to mind the art deco portrait of artist Tamara de Lempicka's husband.

Surrounded by 1930s skyscrapers, this brooding and moody portrait features Tadeusz de Lempicki in a strong shouldered double-breasted coat. The long Prada AW22 version looks protective, and much like armour, with the reflective leather giving it an even more intimidating feel. Start saving, this will be big £££.

Trend Vincentmania

Vincent van gogh courtauld gallery bandaged earVincentmania isn't new, yet it never gets old. The famous ginger Dutchman has become a modern day deity with his artworks treated like contemporary relics. With the Courtauld Gallery newly reopened at London's Somerset House, we get to re-see his famous painting, Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear. Painted in 1889, it will be centre stage of a new exhibition of van Gogh's self-portraits in early 2022. While we shouldn't celebrate anybody cutting their ear off, it just adds depth to his image which seems to be on everything these days along with a few of his artworks.

Left - The first ever exhibition devoted to Vincent van Gogh’s self-portraits across his entire career will take place at The Courtauld Gallery from 3 Feb – 8 May 2022

Gucci Tom Ford Red Velvet Suit

The sign of a confident and secure designer is one who acknowledges the strengths and triumphs of their predecessors. If you were into fashion in the mid 1990s, then there would have been no avoiding Tom Ford’s first collection for Gucci and its luxe and louche velvet suits. This collection was almost as significant as Dior’s New Look in 1947 at catapulting a brand into the spotlight. Tom Ford’s Gucci was sexy as hell.

Over 25 years later, and in Gucci’s 100th year, designer Alessandro Michele has paid homage to this pinnacle of the Tom Ford’s Gucci era and it's looking as timeless as ever. Though it would probably be cheaper buying a 90s original from a vintage seller or auction, not to mention a better investment.

Review King C. Gillette Style Master hair trimmerThe King C. Gillette Style Master is a simple tool offering 3 combs to help you sculpt an individual look, 4 cutting elements designed to trim different hair lengths, and a pivoting head that adapts to the face’s contours. The Style Master is said to give you the flexibility to master your stubble style with ease.

The slim, compact handle comes with a 360° rubber surface for great grip and control, and it’s also fully waterproof for easy cleaning under running water. With cordless power, one charge providing 45 minutes of trimming time.

Left - King C. Gillette Style Master - £39.99

TheChicGeek says, “This is priced slightly higher than the market leading Philips OneBlade - Read TheChicGeek review here - and looks slightly anonymous without the ‘Style Master’ name on.

It's made by Braun, which is respected in electrical, and works well enough with the stability of trimming against the skin. What it can’t do is trim hair around the mouth etc. in the air. It doesn’t have the strength.

The head is fairly small so clogs easily and looks pretty grubby quite quickly. Though it can be rinsed clean.

This is fine for a quick tidy up, but not much more than that.”
