3D Miranda Kerr by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia

the September issue of Vogue Italia had a cover that looked a little different. Why? Because it comes in 3D, and complete with special pair of 3D vision glasses. And what makes it more special? the September issue features 22 pages of the sexy Australian model (and the newly pregnant wife of Orlando Bloom) Miranda Kerr, Shot by photography master Steven Meisel.

Universal Works

Universal Works is an exciting new label headed by David Keyte, a kindred spirit, with over 20 years experience in the industry. David Keyte spent 10 years at Paul Smith, starting off in retail but moving into product development and production. Since then, he spent 5 years as head at Marharishi, and has worked closely with both Margaret Howell & Albam.

At a certain point, David realised he was "less interested in fashion and more in the function, fit and cut of garments". Wanting to explore this further, he decided the best way was to set up a label of his own. Universal Works has been set up with the aim of producing good honest menswear : well made, well considered, easy to wear and affordable. All garments and accessories are made in small, highly skilled factories, many of which are in the UK. The clothes are designed for purpose and to live way beyond one season of fashion.

Take a look at these 1940s check shirt collection from Our Legacy. Button down shirt with the significant 1940´s placket detail such as ends up with a hidden button and oldschool details like button on back collar and a loop to hang it up. These 1940s is made from 100% cotton material.

"Our Legacy is a brand for modern gentlemen, young and old, with a classic taste within fashion. Not too overstrained, nor too fashion but naturally well dressed men. Our Legacy is working from a subjective concept for each collection, taking inspiration from the modernistic era or where/whenever influence might be at the time.

Finding the look, outermost quality and fit is a minimum demand. Our Legacy´s idea is to create a balance between, what Our Legacy define as classic fashion for men and yet protect the playfulness in the theory of creativity.

Our Legacy redefines the classic gentlemans wardrobe in a light and comfortable manner, a well dressed contemporary look made to appear thrown together in a perfect natural and confident way, to fit the modern gentleman."

Florsheim By Duckie Brown : Idler Wallabee

US Shoe brand which founded in 1892, Florsheim has recently teamed up with Duckie Brown, creating a new Florsheim Shoe Line, Florsheim by Duckie Brown. There are 2 interesting kicks i found, the Tassel Loafer and the Idler Wallabee shoe. The Idler shoe comes with a suede leather upper combined with crepe sole, just like the other Wallabee shoes we've seen from other brands before. Florsheim by Duckie Brown's the Idler comes in 3 different colours, Navy, Brown and Coal. The Tassle Loafer resembles a classic shoe design and comes in 3 colourways, Navy, Raisin, and Coal.

"A marriage between Florsheim, a century old American footwear brand, and Duckie Brown, one of the most fashion forward, designer menswear brands, may seem like an unlikely couple at first glance. However, a shared appreciation for tradition and quality is the common ground that unites this partnership."

"The odd couple pairing of Florsheim by Duckie Brown is symbolic of Florshiem's return to the forefront of the footwear industry. It is a marriage that pays homage to classic
Americana while proposing a fashion forward and insightful means for dressing the
modern man in style. Florsheim by Duckie Brown is For the Man Who Cares."
