Monday Men Style: The King Of Fashion

Artistic, visually captivating videos have gotten ahold of me lately. From fashion-editorial shorts to full-length movies, the clothes behind the stories have my attention the way that special light hypnotizes the flies before they’re zapped.   All of my video loving has lead me to “A Single Man,not literally the movie and the man behind those lenses, Tom Ford.

Monday Men Style: New James Bond, New Designer.

My Monday post came about a bit differently this week and was researched, edited and posted completely all from my IPad.

Well some days ago, my MacBook gave me the blue scree of death, leaving me with with no computer and lacking the ability to write, or so I thought. A weekend of Ipading and Iphoning the hours away, got me thinking, why can’t I just use the mobile devices I have? I found apps to insert captions, create collages, upload and export my images all mixing them together with the administration section of my website, giving everyone the final result which is…read on

Bond time is always sexy time. James Bond, the fictional character created decades ago, is a British Secret Agent, code number (007) who is man of charm, wits, physical strength, sex appeal, and stimulates the viewers minds, bodies, and everything else. (wink)
The movie franchise has made leading men out of a handful of British actors who filled the needed requirements for such a role. Personally I’ve never watched all of the James Bond movies, but better late than never, especially since Daniel Craig was the one that got me hooked and the suits than adorned his body fitted him like a well-tailored glove, thanks to designer Tom Ford.

Sadly Mr.Craig will be reprising the James Bond role for the last time in 2012 and a new 007 will have to fill his shoes. So who is tall, sexy, has a voice that will hypnotize us and a body to be worshipped with or without clothes on it?

Lately,there has been Hollywood talk about actor Idris Elba taking over the role, and hopefully he gets the role, so the phrase “tall, DARK and handsome” can finally be added to the characteristics of James Bond.

With a new Bond, there should be a new designer to dress the man. A designer who is known for his expertise in tailoring, has dressed some of Hollywood’s leading men, can wear his own designs like no other and calls the United Kingdom home, with the sexy accent as proof. Give us Ozwald Boateng, shaken not stirred.

Born in Ghana and now based in London, Mr. Boateng began making bespoke suits in 1990 and never looked back. He is widely credited with introducing Savile Row tailoring to a new generation and his clients include Will Smith, Laurence Fishburne, Jamie Foxx, Samuel L. Jackson, Russell Crowe, Keanu Reeves, Mick Jagger and P Diddy.
it’s high time that Ozwald Boateng suits, help define James Bond‘s physical assests and in my book he is the perfect designer to dress Idris Elba or any other actor who may be chosen for future installations of the movie franchise.

Bailey’s Burberry

Who can say they wanted anything but a classic trench from Burberry before Christopher Bailey came along?   Even though Burberry, established in 1856, is one of the oldest fashion labels in existence, their first ready-to-wear  collection was launched in 1998 by Roberto Menichetti. In 2001, Christopher Bailey was appointed the position of creative director at Burberry  Prorsum after he left his own stamp at Gucci for five years under Tom Ford.

C. Bailey has taken a fashion label well over a hundred years old, know for it’s waterproof fabrics and trench-coats,and within ten years, made Burberry into a chic, hip, contemporary clothing line with accessories, shoes and handbags that are just as beautiful as the clothes you should wear them with. Mr. Bailey has done the Burberry Prorsum label right and always gives us new interpretations of the trench-coat every season.
