_The fashion scene is awash with hanger ons, talentless hacks, and the type of people who don’t serve any purpose other than to dress like a complete idiot at fashion week. Fortunately, it’s also filled with people with real talent.
Set designer Gary Card is one such talent that deserves some major attention for his amazing set design. His understanding of color, texture and aesthetics makes him the current “must have” for any photographer or designer and his work with Paul Smith has given his career a series shot of mainstream worthyness. AnOther Man caught up with the rising star in thier most recent issue, photographing him in front of some of his own work, check it out

_So after finding the below image I found an entire set of just great shots of amazing menswear, I've been thinking of recent of how my look will envolve as I get older - I just hope it evolves as well as any of these guys, from classic menswear, to layed back seersucker, and tight formality to ace satin jumpsuits! - yet somehow each one of them looks incredible and individual in there own personal way.

This is the feature shoot from the newly designed 'Interview' Magazine, Kate Moss By Glenn O'Brian. Now as much as I love Kate and 'Interview', the cover text reads 'Whats new pussy cat?' - I get that the entire look of the magazine is new, but the Kate shoot just isn't, its the usual Kate, topless shoot, same poses, get ups, even wigs (although does she not look eerilly like a touched up Madonna on tour?). Im not saying it doesn't work, its Great, but not 'new'.

Just before he Launches with his 'Classic, Manly Dunhill' i just wanted to have a bit of a Kim Jones Renaissance, well from '05 to '08 actaully, but its just ace, his 'chavy boy with a designer edge' is just perfect and i hope he remembers at least some of it when designing for british institution Dunhill.
"Jones collaborates on part of his collection with tailor Timothy Everest, and here that yielded pieces like a seersucker shirt-jacket. In his own right, he also paid close attention to fabric: Bike shorts came in cotton-cashmere, and a kicky little all-in-one was in herringbone. That has become Jones's signature. He twists athleticwear iconography into something intriguingly personal."
"Jones has garnered a growing cult following through his moonlighting gigs at a handful of sportswear labels, and it's obvious why: He has a knack for making athleticwear look unusual and interesting. There was a kick-boxing flair to full trousers. Knit leggings in lilac or gray were paired with formal partners—a gray jacket, a petrol-blue trench—in Jones' own take on this season's sporty dressiness (or is that dressy sportiness?). Prison uniforms may well have influenced a striped cotton jumpsuit and a chambray shirt-and-pant combo, but they looked light and carefree. Some models wore little knit hats (Jones called them "squid hats") that gave them the look of tricoteuses. This is, after all, Paris, home of the Revolution."
All freakin Ace.

_So this is a shot taken of Joe Dallesandro in his late teens, when he was an aspiring body builder (thus explaining the oil), before he was picked up by Warhol and before he worked on growing out that beautiful mane. Now, I'd seen this image before, but never the full shot, it was always cropped at the waist - it was a very nice 'suprise' to find the rest ;)
