Deep V-necks, scoop-neck tops, and V-shaped blazers was one of the strongest menswear trends, during New York’s September Fashion Week. Celebrities such as Jude Law, Ed Westwick and HBO’s True Blood star, Mehcad Brooks have all sported their “Heavage” recently. So what is this new men’s fashion phenomenon?
NY-based Menswear designer, Miguel Antoinne, included this trend in his Spring 2010 collection, sending models down the runway sporting the look. Miguel predicted this would be a huge fashion trend and this shape featured heavily in his collection. Miguel explained to Marvelous Girl more about the trend:
MG: WHAT exactly is heavage?
MA: The male equivalent to cleavage.
MG: WHY such a big comeback?
MA: The trend has been around for a few seasons now beginning with the now thank-goodness, extinct deep V-tshirt.
MG: WHO will be sporting this trend next season?
MA: The sexy, the proud, the confident…these leading men of style will have taken the trend to the next phase of its cycle.
MG: HOW should men wear this look – blazers, v-neck, low scoop t-shirts?
MA: It is a versatile look that men should have fun with. There is the flexibility of dressing the look up or down while still baring the fur and feeling sexy. Fit really is going to be the most important relative to this look next season. The fit should be loosely draped as if effortless. The fitted, deep-V was always a NO.
MG: And How much hair should men dare to bare?
MA: Men should bare as much of their man fur as their inhibition allows them to. Obviously more or less works with different outfits. Buzz works better with more dressy looks where as one might be able to pull off a bush with a t-shirt.
The miguel Antoinne collection is a favorite among celebrities and has been worn by American Idol finalists, singer Trey Songz, Marlon Wayans and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). As a former menswear buyer, trendsetter and up-and-coming designer, Miguel Antoinne is the perfect gateway in to men’s fashion trends.
Victoria Beckham has taken her denim and eyewear collection in-house, and has overhauled and renamed each, according to Women’s Wear Daily. The new styles will make their debut Wednesday on Net-a-porter.com and at a few select stores.
Industry sources estimate the Victoria Beckham dress, denim and sunglass business will ring up $7.5 million in sales next year. In an interview with the paper, Beckham opens up about her hectic schedule (she recently spent the day chaperoning 40 six-year-olds on a field trip), the competition and her drive to succeed.
On being a perfectionist: “It’s about doing things gradually and building the brand in a strategic way. It’s about finding the right time, the right team. With everything that I do, I will only do it after I’ve done all my homework. I really am a perfectionist, and I don’t want to rush anything. It’s not just about putting my name on a product and getting it out there. That’s not what is important to me.”
On her biggest competition: “I’m my competition. I want to do better next season than I did this season. And I’m sure the season after that I will want to beat myself again.”
On what helped shape her into the businesswoman she is today: “I’ve always been driven. I was mentally and physically bullied when I was at school and that gave me a very thick skin…The only reason for me bringing that up is I have always been a fighter. I have always had to work very, very hard with everything I do. That is just my work ethic…That’s my DNA.”
