Tasty Savoir Faire!

Something to tempt your tastebuds here in the Beijing Night Market! A very vibrant atmosphere is teamed together with all sorts of Chinese delicacies! Some sublime, some well not so sublime!

The colours and the presentation of the various foods on offer was incredible and must have taken hours for the various vendors to lay out!

I am usually quite adventurous when it comes to trying new foods, however I did balk at the below! I guess if really pressed I would have tried.

All sorts of seafood was on offer, and also things all squishy that crawled under the earth!

These little sweet temptations were divine. I bought several as snacks on the way.

I hope that this gives you some inspiration for tonight's dinner!

Savoir Faire with Mr. Miller

There is no doubt about it, that over the last couple of years men’s fashion has been re-inventing itself to offer us a wonderful array of looks and new styles. The runways are full of new interpretations of classics and new innovations. Long gone are the days when menswear consisted of the basic shapes that were constantly being tweaked for today’s modern man.

Matthew Miller explores notions of masculinity and design with his collections, which focus on today’s modern man. Miller’s men are confident in what they wear, looking to the future with set ideas on how they will look. Traditions are mixed with new techniques and lines to create extremely practical clothes.

Not only do I Like the clothes, but also the way each collection has been photographed. The same model is used creating a uniform look that proves that these are pieces that are unified in the design, cut and execution. These are pieces that are made to mix and match, providing a variety of different looks, depending on your mood.

The Autumn/Winter 2011 collection below combined traditional shapes with new textures mixed with a colour pallet that ran from reassuring beiges and oatmeal’s to acid yellows and cobalt blues. This is a nice injection of colour into the otherwise boring black that all seem to wear in winter.

Shapes are geometrical and masculine emphasising masculinity and taking us into the future. With this unique line, you won’t be accused of being bland and boring.

On the other hand, Spring/Summer the lines are a lot softer almost the complete opposite of the winter collection. These are incredibly easy to wear pieces that can be mixed and matched for a variety of looks. Colours are more neutral to combat the glare of summer sun.

Definitely a designer to watch for in the future!
