Balmain SS18 Pour Les Hommes: Review

looks_image-1773-BALMAIN_MEN_SS18_LOOK__010.jpg

Balmain’s SS18 collection takes a turn for more western looks. In a recent Vogue article by Luke Leitch, Oliver Rousteing said that he believed that people believed that he was American. He stated the record clear saying that he loves his country of France and he has been really supportive during the recent presidential elections France. His designing westernized clothes for this collection was a pure poke at what people had thought of him and his nationality.

Nonetheless, the show was very French; with French music and French style clothing. My two favorite pieces were the Chanel inspired jacket that I absolutely have fallen in love with!looks_image-1833-BALMAIN_MEN_SS18_LOOK__070.jpgThis and the shirt that also had me head over heels in love!

And the other look that I’m obsessed with is the very low cut neckline shirt that Oliver wear almost all the time. I want this so bad!

Now the beginning of the show was good but it did not do justice for me. The black and white westernized clothes almost gave me cowbells memories back when I was living in Georgia. I never had to milk a cow but I saw some and these pants, it just turned me off.

Opinion:

I really like this collection and can see myself wearing almost every piece in this collection. The tricky part is where though. Nonetheless, Oliver has outdone himself yet again and he deserves all of the greatness to him because he is truly a talented designer. This collection gets a 4 1/2!

Migos, DJ Khaled, Tyga, & 2 Chains Embrace Floral Power!

In a recent Vogue article by , there was a shockingly new observation in the rap game that has been a dream come true to us here at Glamour Guys. Floral prints are being picked up rigorously in the rap game within the last month. Migos sported floral button-downs while DJ Khaled matches Rihanna’s floral Balenciaga’s with his rose floral bomber.

Floral is seen to be a lot more feminine thus making it, in the traditional world, not something that men should wear. I applaud these rappers for stepping out the box and trying something new. It’s actually nice on them and a little bit sexy. This is a nice gateway into blurring gender lines and understanding that style should not be gender approved.

Vlone Black History Fashion Show In Paris: Collection Review

This weekend on Rue Cambon, there was a queue even bigger than the one outside Chanel. That probably hasn’t happened since Coco set up shop in 1910. The reason? The arrival in Paris of A$AP Bari’s clothing label, Vlone, on the Paris schedule.

If you have not heard of Vlone, then I think it is time for you to learn. Vlone is a young Harlem-born brand. Because this is its debut to Paris Fashion Week, this is a huge opportunity that could make or break the brand as a whole.Fortunately, the fashion show was streamed live on Tidal for those of us who were not lucky enough to attend the event.  Here are a couple looks from the collection.

Opinion

The show was a little shambolic with music cutting in and out, tags sticking out of the leather pant, and clothes that needed a lot more editing. But nonetheless, the collection was nice and very dark. I have not yet seen price points for these items but, I believe that this collection is worth your money. This collection gets 3 1/2 stars!

 

The Mains Event: Skepta on Launching His Own Line—And Never Hustling Backward

Entitled Mains, Skepta’s clothing line debuts today at Selfridges in London. A compact but much pored-over capsule (it’s been in development for 18 months) Mains includes a fine cotton drill example of that emblematic Skepta garment, the tracksuit (which comes in olive and black). Tomorrow night, Skepta will be at the store to properly launch the collection.

The Green Tracksuit is something that I am actually quite excited about.

ZAYN X Versus: Capsule Review

Zayn Malik is mad about Donatella Versace. He says she is “awesome, really warm, and friendly” and that “it was sick to work with her.” The pop sensation and significant other to Gigi Hadid is referring to the collaboration he and Versace released last week, a 40-piece capsule for the brand’s secondary line, Versus, modeled by the man himself and his potential sister-in-law, Bella Hadid. “With this line, we tried to capture the essence of how my friends and I dress right now,” Malik explains. “It’s about the attitude of the street—a mix of sports, functionality, and customization.”

Here are our top faves from the collection!

Opinion

Zayn’s collaboration with Versus was nice and in honesty, does capture a nightlife and street style essance and is something that is and is already be worn out today. However, I think that this collection is a little to boring. With an exception of the red that in a few of then items, the black on black makes the collection seem a little to static. Because of the nature of the collection, the price point is a little bit much for some of the items that couls be found else where. It all boils down to are you willing to spend a lot of money on something that is quite basic? Becasue of the price point to what you are given, this collection gets 2 stars.

5 Fun and Affordable Things To Do When You Don’t Know What To Do!

Hey Glamour Guys, Today, we are introlducing a new writer to our blog who goes by the name, Gypsy. He is a really nice and energetic being and is very smart! Here is his debut post on Glamour Guys! Show him some love!

Are you new to LA? Or are you just stuck in a rut? These five destinations might be just what you need.

#1)

black-soft-serve-ice-cream-little-damage-los-angeles

If you’re in the mood for a treat that’s out of this world or something a little on the darker side try Little Damage ice cream shop, Located in DTLA, one of the most diverse cities in America, Little Damage is a small family owned business that draws its inspiration from the rich cultural fabric that makes Los Angel

es special. If you’re thinking that this is just a boring old ice cream shop then you’re in for a real treat. Not only are their recipes handcrafted and slow churned but they also rotate their flavors seasonally. If you’re worried that you won’t remember your experience then stop by their free photo booth on your way out.

#2)

img_5735If sweets aren’t your style and nature is then why not hike up to the observatory located on the highest point of the Macarthur Park mountain range. Along the way, you can see the Hollywood sign and the Hollywood hills. There are lots of scenic views along the way and there’s even a park located in the valley just beneath the observatory.

If what you’re looking for is more on the romantic side of things. Then why not bring along a picnic basket and a bottle of wine to the plaza in front of the observatory.

#3)

tar-pitsIf you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous then stop by the Le Brea Tar Pits. They are located on ancient Tribal lands and they have an interesting museum. The museum is perfect for anyone wanting to learn more about all that the site has uncovered from thousands of years buried away. From huge skeletons from the dinosaurs to fauna and flora from the Paleolithic to the last glacial era. The park is known for producing myriad mammal fossils dating from the last glacial period. While mammal fossils generate significant interest, other fossils, including fossilized insects and plants, and even pollen grains, are also valued. If you get thirsty while you’re there then why don’t you stop by any of the surrounding cafes for a bit of a Nash.

#4)

If what you’re into is cheap but extremely out of the box romance then I would take the trip to the Expo Park Rose Garden. This particular garden is interesting in and of itself however what makes it romantic is that it’s like wandering into a

homepic5

garden straight out of an old-fashioned love story. If you’re one of those Brainy romantics then you and your date should really enjoy all of the museums that surround the rose garden. From the history museum to the museum of aviation. The rose garden has a little bit of something for everyone including some food for when youget hungry.

#5)71_Above_1024x1024

if you want an any occasion place to drink then try the. Located on the 71st floor of the US Bank building. It has a 360° view of the entire LA skyline. They have signature drinks in honor of the most popular LA destinations. However, they also have a semi-formal dress code but barring that the have very imaginative, high-end food at fast food prices. Open seating and you will be mesmerized by how beautiful the sunset looks from the 360° view.

My name is Gypsy and I hope that this list of must go places in LA most helpful in getting out of your funk or just exploring a new place.

Forever searching for the perfect margaritas

Daily Skin Care Routine: How I Broke It and Fixed It All Over Again!

This is not a sponsored post! Unless you want it to be; in that case, email me!

I am the first person to stray away from an already set routine when it comes to anything. I tried not eating bread, failed. I tried exercising in the morning, failed. But when it comes to my face, I am not playing around!

When I moved to New York a couple months ago, I abandoned my skin care routine, and it was the worst thing that I could ever do. Before then, my skin care routine was simple but not ethical or even healthy. I would just use African Black Soap, which is not a bad thing to use, however, I wear makeup and I needed something stronger to break down the makeup. After that, I was using a moisturizer from Derma E which I received from them for a review, and honestly, it wasn’t a good moisturizer. It clogged up my pores and it still had my face feeling dry. When I moved to New York, there were so many things going on at the time and I just gradually stopped my skin care routine. I would have to rush out in the morning every day and that resulting in me just throwing water on my face and using body lotion to moisturize my face. Because it was winter in New York, My face was drier than a raisin and I hated it.

I then moved to LA and that when I started taking better care of my face.  I started with the THREE STEP CLEANSER from Clinique. My skin was super dry and the three step cleanser was the miracle I needed to get my skin back on track. I will be honest with you, I was not trying to spend a lot of money and my first place I went to for skin care solution was Kmart! Yes, I did, please don’t judge me! Because you’re probably asking yourself, why should I take advice from this dysfunctional person? Well, I’ll tell you why because Cliniques three step cleanser was what helped get my skin back together and it’s so simple that a monkey could do it. and the whole process only takes five minutes so, from the words of my loving and nagging boyfriend, stop being lazy and wash your damn face!
