Canary Wharf Motorexpo: Part II

Monday, 30 June 2008


It’s time for the second installment of the Canary Wharf motorexpo in London. As the name might suggested the name motor included any other viechle powered by a motor except mow lower off course. In the true spirit of the mighty Royal Navy, Sunseeker yacht manufacturer brought a fleet of luxury cruisers.



Contrary to people’s perception of yacht as means of transportations their purpose is more recreational like an RV but designated for the waters offering sea dwellers a means o residence for illegal fishing, gambling or freely marrying a zebra. Inhaling the smell of new leather one is overwhelmed by the generous space not anticipated when looking at a yacht from the outside.




The largest one of them was practically like a small family house coming with a whopping three bathrooms(more than people have on land), three bedrooms with a total of 6 beds and last but not least a lounge/living room lit up by a 47 inch screen TV. Sunseeker can customize the interior to the customers’ specific taste or needs, making the customers dizzy by the endless choice of wood and leather there is to choose from.

At the Expo there was a star striking sight of Amy Winehouse who was jumping all around getting close up with the cars while attracting the attention of all the bystanders. Realistically speaking the individual seen in the photo wasn’t actually Amy Winehouse but one of the most identical impersonators alive. Her face was a carbon copy of Amy Winehouse and if walking on the streets of central London she would be flocked by people wanting to snap pictures. She had the vast majority of people at the expo fooled except for a few who insisted that Amy Winehouse doesn’t look healthy as the near carbon copy of her shocking visitors at the Expo. In a nut shell she was a sexy mirror image of what Amy Winehouse would look like if she didn’t have a sweet tooth for illegal substances.

Dolce & Gabbana are as predictable as a race between a bunch of dogs. One season they present a rather despicable collection while the next one makes people wave their credit cards in the air. Their consistency is very low but when Dolce & Gabbana are good they are damn good like their SS09.

Inspired by metropolitan dandy lifestyle the Italian duo have created summer wear designated at people who want to look like they’ve got money. The type of guy who walks into a room and you can tell by the well groomed appearance and exquisite clothing that their wallet is thicker than a twin mattress. With exotic materials coloured in sexy midnight blue Dolce & Gabbana want to revive ostentatious Manhattan romance.

Propagating the use of a bow tie or a silk scarf resting around the neck slickness is guaranteed for anyone attempting to replicate either of these outfits. Perfect touches on an extravagant outfit designated to be worn while unconsciously eating a €160 for two at an overbooked fancy restaurant. This collection is undoubtedly dedicated to flamboyant stock brokers receiving bonuses the drop on lavish things like €1 540 sheets made out of the finest Egyptian cotton.

-Somewhat dreadful leather jackets.
-What’s up with the fetish surrounding laces?
-Naomi Campell. She’s soooooooooo yesterday.
-Alligator(snake?) shoes.


+The negative but very charming pompous image.
+All the nice little details like ties, pocket squares, scarves and different coloured collars.
+Theme and execution.
+Material and fabric mixtures.
+Blazers with Chinese prints.


Grade: 8.9/10 This is Dolce & Gabbana at their best. Absolutely splendid collection with zero over-expressive pieces. Ignoring the leather jackets they have hit it on the nail with a near perfect collection. Any Christian Bale fan or Tom Ford advocate should be quivering out of delight watching looking at these photos of Italian excellence.

SS09: Missoni Men

Tuesday, 24 June 2008


Missoni was brightest star as Milan AW08 overshadowing many other designers, as well as those in Paris. Behind the most stunning collection last season high expectations for the SS09 were imminent.



The first impression of the SS09 is deja vu, you recognize the colour of the runway and the wall, but most obvious is the color palette for the clothes remind your of something you saw 6 months ago…….the fantastic AW08. Browsing through the outfit a sense of sadness is evoked by high similarity with the AW08 but lack of WOW-factor. It can be described of listening to a lame cover of an old 80s song by an untalented British pop artist with low paid producers. Very unimaginatively Missoni have taken the AW08 given it a splash of 70s fashion and made it a bit more laidback. Speaking out of disappointment one can say that the SS09 is AW08 minus style and innovation.



Lacking masculinity, edginess or elegance there is very little that’s remarkable about Missoni’s SS08. The biggest disappointment is in the silhouettes, cuts and styling of the clothes which is middle-aged man would be wearing in the 70s on a Sunday sitting in the living room reading a newspaper. Some of the outfits even look a bit grandpa-ish with zero Italian sexiness.

+Colourful knitwear

-Recycling of the AW08 into something boring as ironing bed sheets on a Friday night.
-Pants widening down the knees.
-Too similar to the previous season.

Grade: 2.5/10 is Missoni’s SS09 would have been bakery, it would have been an apple pie with filling and apples all scraped off.
