'VARIETY- NOT NECESSARILY THE SPICE OF MENSWEAR LIFE'
ALL ITEMS AVAILABLE FROM ‘THE ESSENTIALS’ LIST AT MRPORTER.COM 
There is a substantial amount a man can do to dress himself with flair and personality, and while the initial list of menswear ‘essentials’ can often seem confusing and nonsensical (neckerchiefs and driving gloves anyone?) one needs to put this in perspective with style in a wider context.
While women are motivated by seasonal trends, changing color palettes and ever-changing conceptual requirements (this year its military, next it may be victorian, who knows) men instead have a limited and largely unchanging sartorial arsenal from which to pick their next outfit. Even as seasons change and trends fly in and out, men can weather the style storm by switching material (linen in summer, cotton in winter) and adding refined touches to their basic wardrobe (feeling edgy, how about a paisley tie or a catching hermatite tie pin?)
Here are a couple of Styleternity’s truly essential picks for this season, next season and really any time of year when teamed with an appropriate outfit:
ACNE ‘Limit’ scoop neck crew tee: take a leaf out of James Dean’ and Marlon Brando’s book with this pure cotton crew tee made by Sweden’s premiere denim house, a versatile wardrobe staple that looks as good with selvedge denim as it does with a trusty bomber jacket.
Alexander McQueen check bomber jacket: with the minimalism of the season past, couture houses are looking back to checks to provide a more sophisticated texture to classic wardrobe staples. Try the Alexander McQueen bomber in check from rebellious rock’n’roll chic with a predatory Clockword Orange-esque twist! 
Beams Plus double breasted blazer: blazers are an undeniably adaptable wardrobe staple, and this season is all about the double breasted shape and its hard box silhouette, the Beams Plus blazer in cornflower blue is an excellent place to start. With a contemporary cut and vintage style, this  wardrobe staple can easily be dressed up or down!
Lanvin cotton cardigan: forget the stuffy menthol scented knits of your grandpappy; the Lanvin double breasted cardigan with a knitted collar will look as good with velvet slippers and a pipe as it will with soft cotton pants and a simple t-shirt. In a time where slim-is-in, its a comfort to know the chunky knit cardigan is still as desirable as it was 50 years ago!
Alexander McQueen suede tassel loafer: Another brilliant new season arrival from Alexander McQueen, the suede tassel loafer epitomizes European style. In an elegant suede texture with rounded tassels wear this shoe with a contrasting sock to add a mischievous touch to a formal outfit. OR once worn in, go sockless and team with turned up chinos for instant louche style!
Ralph Lauren Black Label suit: In a luxurious 3 piece cotton weave, this Prince of Wales style check suit by Ralph Lauren Black label blends the best of old world tailoring with contemporary American style, worn with or without the corresponding accessories (tie, cufflinks) this is a versatile suit that will serve well in the boardroom or at the banquet for years to come!
Richard James sharkskin check suit: With a clientele including Robert Downey Jr. and James Bond (fictionally of course) a Richard James suit is a long term investment meant for form and functionality! This sharkskin check variety is the perfect armor for the sartorially inclined corporate raider and epitomizes the ‘dress to impress’ mantra of would-be masters of the universe.
Edwin Ed-55 selvedge jeans: The Japanese are famed for an impressive discipline when it comes to even the most minute of details, and this shows through in Edwin’s classic selvedge jean. Great with loafers, a crew tee or paired with a blazer these raw denim jeans will outlast many jeans made at a similar price point and prove once again that Japan’s sphere of tech-fashion influence remains wide and supreme!

RELEVANCE X MODERNITY
January 22, 2012
Lanvin has debuted its 2012 Fall collection, and as always creative director Alber Elbaz has displayed his fondness for Lanvin’s mastery over both heritage and relevance. "Its not modernity that’s important, its relevance" said Elbaz at the outset of the show, setting the tone for this season’s must have look: the suit.
But as per usual, Lanvin are not interested in the simple extension of men’s suiting traditions and have turned to sport and the elements to infuse their latest fall collection. Under the creative direction of Mr Lucas Ossendrijver, this Lanvin collection combines the aesthetic of vintage boxers, mountaineers and street style with that of the traditional Lanvin suiting luxury. Alongside the overcoats and denim, the collection included souped-up boxer’s boots and puffer coats to clothe the suited homme against the elements of Paris (and indeed Europe’s) cold windy January. 
Though this collection caps a period of creative reserve in Lanvin’s recent years, Ossendrijver and Elbaz prove once again that they understand to an exacting toll what the Lanvin aesthetic is famed for: elegant pared back luxury reinforced by one or two stand-out items that give added depth to the ensemble.

"Your inner freak is a reservoir of raw and unregulated courage, it dares to offend others and to confront the soul with its darkest longing" 

Dior Homme- minimalism in the making….

So after viewing the historical Winter retrospective of i-D I can’t help but notice the striking resurgence of wide-brimmed head wear and lengthier cut shapes in the runway collections of a number of great houses: Lanvin, Givenchy and Junya Watanabe come to mind. But in particular the style of Dior Homme deserves special praise…

With the much maligned departure of Hedi Slimane as creative director for Dior Homme (he is now pursuing a lucrative and successful career as a portraiture photographer, taking on projects involving heavyweight names such as Robert De Niro, Gisele Bundchen & Frances-Bean Cobain) Kris Van Assche has now ascended as his replacement tackling the spring RTW collection for 2012. 

While Van Assche may not have yet surpassed his predecessor in creative output he has made a very substantial and positive sortie into 2012 with conceptually competent and classically tailored collection. Wisely restricting himself in a majority of ways, Assche has opted for a palette composed of shades, tones and very low contrast colours (the greens and almost electric blues stand out as the greatest palette indicators). Assche’s goal in my mind may have been to stimulate concern in the growing conventionality of the suit; asking of its potential buyers how items such as the double breasted jacket and blazer have lost their flavour. 

Though Van Assche restricts the ‘fashion forward’ aspects of the collection to the cut and detail of outerwear (the blended pull across blazer is such an exemplar) he also shows touches of reverence for Slimane’s attention to detail in the area of accessories: armbands, wide brimmed fedoras and slim deep bellied totes are the rule of law here and add a touch of rock’n’roll spirit to an otherwise deceptively classical collection. 

Interestingly, the constant presence of leather and re-invention of Winter staples (e.g. the trench) is something we’re all seeing alot of in Lanvin’s recent RTW as well…oh well you can never have too much of a good thing right? 

The fashion industry has seen its bevy of esteemed artists and photographers, with great individuals of history including Mario Testino, Nick Knight and Annie Liebovitz as contributors it is often difficult to stand head and shoulders with such names to make one’s own. 
Nevertheless, the vibrancy of the industry demands new blood eternally, and with the winter issue of i-D now in stock the world over, the photographer Anna Bauer comes into the spotlight. 
Bauer is no greenhorn to fashion: a solid contributor for nearly half a decade, and a master of developed film portraiture shots, anyone who is anybody in fashion has at some stage fixed upon her lens. Names include Alber Elbaz, Anna Wintour, Alison Nix and more recently Gisele Bundchen (at the 2011 closing for Givenchy). Her work makes excellent use of lighting and viewpoint, and anyone with a remote interest or inclination for fashion should sample her raw and simply splendid work!
