Online Window Shopping

I have been visiting Topman's online store as they are now shipping to Singapore. Yay! Although I haven't bought anything just yet. Here are my favorites. Oh, and Christmas is just around the corner! Thank God I have been nice! :)

What better way to celebrate the season but with cheesy Christmas jumpers!
This navy cardigan with all over reindeer print hits the right spot. Brownie points for brown and blue color combination.

Lovely dip dye burgundy sweatshirt makes me wish for colder weather.

Oh! They come in a T-shirt version!

I have been toying with the idea of getting printed pants and this fits the bill just fine. 
(It is also on sale, so what's not to love?)

Ending this post with this awesome leopard print tee.
BTW, I got this same shirt from the actual store, on sale! Yay for good buys!

I might actually get to buy one or two things from this list soon. Or maybe, I'll just wait for Santa. Happy Christmas!

See yah later!

Hedi Slimane: Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 Menswear

Hedi Slimane is one of my favorite designers. He is an icon. He made me realize being skinny never hurts anybody. Well, he is named "Slim"ane That's why I try to keep my body as it is because I have learned to dress it. If I grew muscles, I wouldn't fit into my clothes anymore (tragedy!) Plus, I now know what fits me and what doesn't. Yes, I don't have a healthy body but I try to eat healthy all the time. Back to Hedi... After his controversial return to designing, his first collection for Saint Laurent Womenswear wasn't all that remarkable, ehem. Well, it was his first womenswear offering so give the man a break. 

Right now, let us just enjoy the wonders of Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 Menswear lookbook photographed by the man himself. Disclaimer: I am fascinated with the leather pieces in this collection. Expect to see leather, leather and more leather.

Loving this utilitarian leather jacket. Minimal and refined.

Another leather piece, this time, it's a dress shirt reimagined in leather.

Triple pleated leather bottoms, hmm. I do like the striped top and stacked bracelets. 
Not very manly, but who cares!

This! Awesome sleeveless shirt with zip detail in the collar and you guess that right, leather shoulder patches (!?!). No idea what these leather thingies are called.

Oh hello! Red leather blazer! Hugs for you!

Finally, a non-leather piece that I really like!
Collarless denim jacket! 
Hmm, I think it's time to troll vintage/thrift shops for the perfect denim jacket. 
Imma cut your collar off! DIY

And for accessories, I'm obviously amazed by the necktie thingy. 
What is this amazingness, Hedi?!?

Lovely right? Welcome back Mr. Slimane.

OOTD: The Artsy Fartsy Edition

I rarely do outfit of the day posts (OOTD) for two basic reasons. 1, I don't own a proper camera and 2, I am too shy to ask a stranger to take my photo. Also, I wear the same stuff again and again, not very exciting for other people to take notice.

Anyway, today is a special day as I managed to drag my lazy butt off on a gray Saturday Afternoon to visit one of my favorite museum here in Singapore, the Singapore Arts Museum or SAM. I love their collection of contemporary art in different media, there are sculptures, paintings, videos, etc. Special also as I managed to take a few shots of what I was wearing.

OOTD: I wore a thrifted denim shirt over a pale pink tee from TopMan. Paired with dark green pants which I previously blogged about here. Shoes are white espadrilles from H&M and the Zadig & Voltaire bag is a freebie from one of the fashion magazines. 

Here is a slightly better look at what I was wearing.
Behind me is a Wasinburee Supanichvoraparch metal sculpture of a puppy. 
A very huge puppy that is.

And below are a few more pictures taken by my good friend.
Though I am not a fan of smoking, I did enjoy the series of smoking portraits by a Thai Artist.
Can you name them all? LOL! I spy Frida Kahlo, Princess Di, Andy Warhol, Kurt Cobain, Vincent Van Gogh and so much more. 

This cute monogrammed creature is by an artist named Zero. 

I love this hauntingly beautiful portrait.

There are a few Filipino artists whose works were featured on SAM. 
One of which is Louie Cordero (above).

Plus a whole room dedicated to contemporary Filipino artists over at SAM at 8Q. See above.

And so the day is over. Thanks for reading!

Fashion Essentials: The Denim Jacket Project

I have been trolling the malls and thrift stores for the perfect denim jacket. Though there are some runner ups here and there, there is always something a bit off. Maybe the jacket is too big, or the sleeves are too long, or too short! I want something with a little heft, and with interesting details. Unsurprisingly, I have found it from the sale rack at Topman! Most of my friends will know that I have a sizable amount of clothes from Topman. Well, what can I say, I love their basic tee which comes in whole plethora of colors. I have shirts in rust, pinks of different variations, blues, greens, purples all from Topman. Not to mention, a pair of pants in red and another one in purple.

Anyway, lemme share some back story of the denim jacket which I got. It is from a collaboration  from Topman and six different designers to recreate the denim jacket. One of the designers is "Shaun Samson". 

When I first saw him, I immediately thought he looks like a Filipino. Well what do you know! After much searching, found out that he indeed is one. Mabuhay kabayan!

Anyway, he is a young designer born in California and now residing in London. He has degrees from The Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (LA) and Central St Martins. He does amazing menswear pieces which is one part preppy, one part gangster, 100% cool. His Cali sensibilities shows in his pieces.

The Denim Jacket

I chose to use the photo above with the model's back to us as it showcases what captures my attention. Shaun has added a layer of mesh/net material in the back of the denim jacket adding some rock and roll flavor to the typical denim jacket. The only downside is that the jacket is lined, which means, I can only wear it in really cold conditions. (My office, LOL, for example).

I apologize as I don't have a picture of myself in it, lousy blogger! You might catch a glimpse of me wearing it when I post it in instragram (Follow me there, and on twitter, too! @eli_AR).

The Style Icon: Johnny Depp

I have always admired Johnny Depp. Style-wise, he can do no wrong. Yes, he isn't the most fashionable actor out there, but he always dresses for nobody's pleasure. I love that there is always something off in whatever he's wearing. Maybe a scruffy pair pf shoes with a nice suit, some layered skinny scarves wrapped nonchalantly around his neck or a beat up leater jacket. And his movie portrayals are very admirable. Have you watched "What's Eating Gilbert Grape"? How about "Cry Baby"? Hmm,. "Sleepy Hollow"?

Fortunately for me, I didn't have to search high and low for Johnny Depp's lookbook as the guys over at The Cut has done just that recently. 

Let's get it on with the pictures. Imma start with the newest pics, leading onto the older ones. Enjoy!

Taken during the Dark Shadows press conference in Japan.
I'm having a serious case of jacket envy with his beaten up leather jacket.

Dude cleans up pretty nicely. 
He wears a mean three-piece suit at the premiere of The Rum Diary in London.

Rocking the vest/waistcoat for a TV appearance in Late Show With David Letterman, NYC.

In Cannes, France. Note the distressed cream jeans, suspenders (no belts here), plus an ascot, a hat, glasses, pocket square and so on. He knows the power of accessories.

Here he is in his casual look, at Narita International Airport, Japan.
Love the striped shirt, layered under everything

Loving the print on his double breasted coat.

In a double breasted suit and burgundy tie and pocket square for the New York premiere of Sweeny Todd. Oh! and the scruffy shoes! 

Loving the fit of his shirt, not to mention the multiple rings and layered accessories.

With Vanessa Paradis, at the Academy Awards.

Mixing prints like a boss! Glen plaid coat and a striped shirt.

My favorite film: Sleepy Hollow

And did you know that him and Kate Moss used to be an item?

Young love! Leather love!

In Cry Baby

Lovely glasses you got here! (Photo: 1988)

Ending this post with a 1987 photo for 21 Jump Street.

Now it's your turn. Who are you fashion icons?

PS. He was awarded by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) as a Style Icon for 2012.

Lana Del Rey for H&M Winter 2012

And the wait is over. Last week, I blogged about Lana Del Rey being the face of H&M this Fall/Winter. Lo and behold, here are the photos for shot by Sølve Sundsbø.

Lana Del Rey
LDR poses in a biker-style jacket and sexy skinny pants.

Lana Del Rey
Let's do this lying down this time.
She dons a faux fur waistcoat, or if you prefer to call it a vest, that'll do as well.

Lana Del Rey
Doing the booty tooch, in a belted, padded jacket.

Lana Del Rey
And there you have it fashion folks!
LDR finishes it up in a lovely knit sweater

I am just wondering, will H&M post another video for this shoot? We'll wait and see. Anyway, let me end this post with Lana Del Rey's epic 10 minute music video, "Ride". Not my favorite though, but this is her latest video out. Enjoy!

See yah later!

Brad Pitt for Chanel No.5

Well, what do you know? It's another Brad Pitt post here in Dandy Bohemian. This time, Brad fronts Chanel's latest ad for its top selling perfume "No.5". I am loving the black and white or grayscale look of the video. 


Below are a few outtakes I managed to get.

 Brad Pitt shot by Sam Taylor-Wood for the Chanel No. 5 campaign

The photographs above are from Sam Taylor-Wood, while the forthcoming print campaign's pictures were taken by Steven Klein.

And here is the video, "inevitable".

Brad Pitt for Interview Magazine Oct/Nov 2012

Interview Magazine just released their cover star for October/November 2012. It is none other than Brad Pitt. Oh yes, girls wanna be with him and guys wanna be him, or look like him. I have always been a fan of Brad Pitt. He has done some very nice movies (Fight Club) and not so nice ones (Troy, sorry!). But his movie characters are always interesting.

Fashion-wise, I have read that he tends to mirror his partner's clothing choices. Like being soon-to-be Mr. Angelina Jolie, Brad has worn leather and darker clothes. He was a bit more laidback when Jennifer Aniston and him were dating. I guess its a good thing. He's a man's man yet he shows his affection towards his partner through clothes.

Anway, back to the Interview. It was by Guy Ritchie, photographed by Steven Klein and styled by Ludivine Poiblanc. In the photos, it captures the many faces of Brad Pitt. Enjoy!

Jacket and Shirt by Greg Lauren; T-shirt by Topman; Sunglasses, Pitt's own; 
Rings by Camilla Dietz Bergeron and David Yurman

Arrr! Pirate Pitt wears an eye patch by Astuko Kudo and T-Shirt by Kaufman's Army & Navy.

Looking very dandy in a Versace Jacket and Lanvin Shirt. Accessories includes a necklace by Camilla Dietz Bergeron and a bracelet David Yurman. Pitt wears his own ring.

Wonder what Brad Pitt looks like in dreads? Wonder no more!
Sweater is from A Child of Jago.

My personal favorite, because of the huge floppy bowtie.
Pitt wears robe and bowtie by Tom Ford and shirt by Giorgio Armani. Accessories do make a man sometimes, Pin by Camilla Dietz Bergeron, watch by Cartier and ring by David Yurman.

So is the magazine out now? Gotta go check the bookstores.
