The Rugby Tweed Run


“Vintage has made such a huge impact on the way we dress and always sneaks its way onto our catwalks even if just a hint of detail but it has also changed the way we spend our time and what better way to spend your day than at the ‘Tweed Run’.The ‘Tweed Run’ is a metropolitan bike ride introduced for one reason only ‘style not speed’. The first ever ride was held in London 2009 by ‘Fixed Gear and Single Speed’, an online cycling forum. Since the success of the first bike ride, the ‘Tweed Run’ has been used in similar formats all over the world from Chicago to Sydney and this year see’s New York the proprietor of the tradition today Saturday 15th October 11. All American designer Ralph Lauren has taken on the classic event renaming it ‘The Rugby Tweed Run’ after his dapper Heritage range. The American designer believes that New York  needs to up the ante when it comes to vintage style, so get ready to see participants riding around the city in their best dressed 1930’s and 40’s inspired outfits. Although it is not essential that the bikes must be vintage, the tradition of the run has always seen some of the best antique cycles from fixed wheels, old Brompton’s and penny farthings. The big day will be formed of a 12 mile bike ride, afternoon tea and a gin filled after ride party in Brooklyn….” Read on at MPDClick :: Global Fashion Intelligence :: trends :: trend journal :: event: the rugby tweed run.

Hair Glasses by Studio Swine

Thanks to The Trend Boutique for reporting this story

“British design duo Azusa Murakami & Alexander Groves from the creative design company Studio Swine have recently created a collection of sustainable fashion eyewear exploring the potential of all things, human hair. The Trend Boutique feel this new range can be seen as a more commercial & sustainable interpretation of our recent direction for developing products from human momentos seen within our Autumn Winter 2012-13 Fragility trend report.

The idea behind this new collection is a really clever one, as Studio Swine explores how the booming market for hair extensions can be expanded beyond the beauty industry and make use of the high level of waste created once the extensions are removed to make a new product that is equally desirable. The UK beauty industry imports 15 million pounds worth of human hair per year and as the demand shows no signs of abating human hair has been reimagined as a viable and most importantly renewable material.”

Live From… Milan Menswear, Day 2

Live From… Milan Menswear, Day 2 Prada

Miuccia Prada likes to challenge fashion, often taking the ugly and turning it into something unexpectedly directional and fashion forward. For her winter menswear collection the references come from the 60s – and everything kitsch and bad taste about the period. In this case it’s turtleneck twinsets, boxy suits and diamond-patched suede commuter coats.  The look: Bad-taste 60s retroisms made minimal and modern Silhouette: Square-cut flat planes, oversized top halvesKey items: Tailored suit jackets are oversized and boxy with exaggerated wide-cut sleeves, either high-breaking three-button SBs or four-button SBs buttoned to the neck, while pants are tapered and cut above the ankle or cropped just below the knee; square-cut 60s-style polo shirts and twinsets comprise a narrow turtle neck and V-neck combo in glitter knits; elsewhere there are zip-up track tops and viscose jogging bottoms, carrot-leg suede pants and suede commuter coats with contrast diamond panels
