It’s still winter in many parts of the world (or some weeks it is, and some weeks it isn’t – hello, global warming!). Lasso came about when Gaspard Tiné-Berès went off to school and needed slippers to tolerate the cold stone floors. Taking a piece of spare felt and a sneaker lace, the first pair of Lasso slippers were born.

After 164 prototypes, the design was perfected and Tiné-Berès brought Ruben Valensi on board to help get the company rolling. Now made in Paris with the help of a company that provides work for people with special needs.

Lasso slippers are made from a single piece of wool felt, a leather sole, and cotton lace in five different colors. The slippers come flat-packed and easily take shape when you lace the edges together.

They are currently looking for funding on Kickstarter, so help them out with some cash while helping your feet get some warmth.

MEN’S ACCESSORY -BROOCHES

Leave a comment

When it comes to men accessories can be the most overlooked and under appreciated pieces they can definitely bring more depth to your appearance.I’m a fan of accessories and I have been crazy about brooches on blazers lately , i think accessories make what people have on look better,i wish men are more aware of how much they could add to an outfit, they would be more inclined or inspired to try it out for themselves, Check brooches below.

So what happens when a man with an extensive Hermes scarf collection asks the kind people at Vans to turn them into custom shoes? Some very beautiful & very unique footwear is created . If these were lace ups I would sell my soul for them.

  
















DIY (Do It Yourself) Month 4 * Week 3

2 Comments

hey y’all !!! how did the weekend go ???? well..mine was good..but short though..and a very close friend of mine, Susan , is ill 😦 . pls lets wish her a quick recovery 🙂

going into today’s issue…concerning colour blocking…leggo!!

DIY Colour Blocked Pants

Colour + block = the 2 words in fashion most commonly used this season. It was just a matter of time before we’d incorporate this much loved trend into a DIY. And thanks to Tommy Ton‘s color blocked pants, spotted at New York Fashion Week, we were finally inspired to give an old pair of chinos a much needed makeover!

You’ll need:

  • a pair of old boyfriend jeans or chinos
  • 4 oz fabric or craft paint (we used Martha Stewart Satin Craft Paint in Indigo)
  • flat paintbrush
  • small plastic tray
  • masking tape

Depending on the length of the pants, measure 12-16 inches from the bottom hem to the calf. Use a long piece of masking tape to tape off one leg. Repeat the step on the other leg, aligning the two to ensure evenness. Squeeze 2 ounces of craft paint into the small tray.

Start painting, using generous amounts of paint. Be sure to get close to the edge of the masking tape for a straight line!

Once the legs have been painted, allow it to dry completely. Turn the pants inside out, tape off a section 6 – 8 inches from the bottom (depending on the fold of the cuff), and paint. Once everything is dry, peel away the tape from the inside and out.

Fold the bottom of pants twice into a cuff. (Side note: the Martha Stewart craft paint will not crack or peel but will may stiffen the fabric)

Ready, set . . . color-blocked!

 

Men’s Accessories: Tie Bar- The why, the what, the how

Tie Bar accesory for men how to style wear tie clip tie bar pretty please us blog

Hello again boys,

Did you know that men’s accessories sales are on the rise? Men are buying so many accessories that some forecasters predict sales growth for men’s clothing and accessories during the first three months of this year will set a 20-year high.  This brings us to our point, the tie bar, the first men’s accessory we shall discuss. Tie bars have gained popularity recently and if you haven’t gotten one yet, you must! It’s a hot accessory for men and you better jump on the tie bar train before it leaves without you. I personally prefer the more simple, plain look such as the Tiffany’s Tie Bar below but there’s definitely some fancy ones out there.

Thanks to the fancy people at GQ, now you can avoid making those tie bar related faux pas that were bound to happen before.

We see guys wearing their tie bar too high or too low all the time. The rule is simple: It goes between the third and fourth buttons of your dress shirt.

It may sound obvious, but a tie bar doesn’t just clip the front end of your tie to the back end. It fastens both ends to the placket of your shirt.

Finally, never wear a tie bar that’s wider than your tie. That’s the worst! Keep things narrow.

So go ahead, accessorize yourself and get your sexy on.

“He in love with street shit
No wonder why I feel awkward at this fashion week shit”

Though he raps the above lyric in Club Paradise, anyone who see’s Drake’s GQ Fashion Spread would think he lived at Fashion Week. GQ managed to capture Drake in a way that combines his hip hop swag and mixes in trendy men’s fashion and produces some photos I’d liken to visual heaven.

DIY (Do It Yourself) Month 4 * Week 1

6 Comments

hey y’all, happy new month..my saturday didnt really go quite well, but thats last month!! . Well, this week”s DIY is also a bracelet, i think bracelets are the reigning accessories these days…enjoy..and learn…(thanks to Kristie Kingston from United Kingdom, for the pics)

DIY Wrap Bracelet

 

You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists. The more, the better. In fact . . . the most, the best! With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet. It’s so simple and addicting, you’ll soon be churning out these wristlets with your eyes closed. Clearly this arm party train isn’t stopping and it’s about time you get on board!

You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet) :

* Lengths will vary depending on the size of your wrist (see comments for suggestions).

 

Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop. The loop should fit around the hex nut, which serves as the clasp. Run the tip of the waxed linen upwards along the leather cord and towards the loop. Then wrap around the base of the loop at least 5-6 times, working downwards in the opposite direction. This secures the waxed linen cord and is the start of the bracelet.

Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap. Holding the ball chain against the leather cord, wrap the linen around tightly.

Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist.

When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times. Tie a knot with all three strands.

Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot.

Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!!

The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet. For a single or triple wrapped bracelet, divide the measurements by 2 and multiply by accordingly. Experiment with crystal or other types of chain!

It’s a party!
