    International Fashion & Style; Daks ... London FW Spring 2014 Photos

    Daks is a brand that most will not recall. The reason being is that you have to be of a certain age to know that Daks was a leader in the raincoat business at about the same time Burberry was only known as a maker of raincoats. Daks was a constant presence in advertising and was considered to be amongst the more prestigious of manufacturers and I believe they were only in the men’s business. Okay, history lesson fini!

There have been glimmers of hope that Daks can possibly follow in the tracks of its sister brand Burberry and this season provides a look into further possibilities of that happening.

In one look, a bare-legged male model sported what appeared to the uninitiated to be a short-sleeved button-up black minidress teamed with black shoes and calf length socks. Fashion website fashion.com, however, praised the outfit as “unquestionably the drop crotch short-short onesie of the season.” Other ensembles had a similarly feminine feel including black shorts that looked like a miniskirt worn with a black and white striped belt and long-sleeved pink shirt. Motifs were embroidered with sequins and tunic tops came in pink and purple stripes. Unusually, the event was held outside Paris at U.S. art mogul Larry Gagosian’s cavernous art venue, northeast of the city. Opened in 2012, it is the first major gallery to be set up inside airport grounds, aiming to showcase works too big to be accommodated by inner city Paris or London locations. Simons’ label said the Gagosian Gallery was chosen so the collection could be unveiled alongside the work of artists he “...

  • Casting noen film er tøff, men prøv avstøpning en "Star Trek"-filmen, vel vitende om at den opprinnelige TV-tegnene er allerede høyt elskede av millioner av hengivne fans. Få aktører er så forbundet med sine roller som William Shatner som kaptein Kirk og Leonard Nimoy som Spock. Men når Chris Pine og Zachary Quinto tok over disse rollene i 2009 filmen "Star Trek", var vurderinger stort sett ganske positiv.
