In Praise Of Alabastrine Wraiths, Cloaked In Shadowed Fineries

Well, one in particular, actually: Florian Pessenteiner of the Larapixie Talent Agency. I discovered this sharp-angled young thing of beauty via blogature at The Fashionisto, though I’m intrigued by more than just his impeccable bone structure or confession that he was a “proper Goth Kid and used to be in [the] scene.” It’s this exhibition […]

Stylish Gent Roundup – March 2009

The last few months have seen a nice blend of posts ranging from expensive black leather to affordable casualwear at Stylish Gent, and our staff has grown to four, allowing us to completely cover every aspect of mens fashion. Congratulations! You are now safe to ignore anything beyond Haute Macabre and Stylish Gent, as our […]

Nordic Invasion

Richard Söderberg is a relatively new, talented young designer from Sweden. He originally launched his label under the name “Macabre” in 2007 but changed it to “Obscur” shortly after. He has been compared to Rick Owens, but his style is more likely to be influenced by his homeland. Scandinavian design is very austere and somber… […]

Alexander McQueen

Guys, I don’t want to hear you complaining about never finding anything cool to wear or that girls get all the good designers.  This runway season has been pure fashion porn for you gents, and Alexander McQueen just made me consider going the Boys Don’t Cry route.  The Fall 09 collection he unveiled is full […]

Gentlemen, For the Win

Not too long ago, the runway images for this year’s collections starting pouring into my inbox, and quite frankly, I hated everything.  Every men’s line that I saw reminded me of all the things one should never wear.  It was as if the designers were trying to just reach so far out there, and not […]

Gareth Pugh Pre-Fall 09/10

  I just found this clip from Gareth Pugh’s Paris Fall / Winter 09/10 show from yesterday, and actually had to take a few deep breaths before posting about it.  My exact words in an iChat conversation with Zoetica were “I have to calm down before I post about this, or I’ll just mash the […]

Tie You Down

Cyberoptix TieLab are not your daddy’s ties.  That is, unless, your daddy is way cooler than most are.  Their silk screened designs come out of a furniture warehouse in Detroit, an industrial muse for the good makers.  By night, Cyberoptix is disguised as an electronic music feature called Toybreaker / Deathlab, and has the Guggenheim […]

Michel Berandi

Michel Berandi‘s Fall/Winter 2008 collection showcased some great men’s looks. Skinny black jeans, deconstructed sweaters, cute jackets, and the awesome chicken-foot necklace (seen here paired with an oversize faux fur jacket ), all get my thumbs-up. Wearing a toupee on your face, however, remains a poor choice.

Steam Trunk

Steam Trunk Couture, “Conceived on the wings of underground theater and circus”, crafts both men’s and women’s vintage-inspired steampunk fashion. This time around, we thought we would focus on the men’s line. While some of their offerings can seem costumey (especially when worn as complete ensembles), they also make some unique and wearable pieces worth […]
