MOCK Magazine Seeks Sartorial Splendor

MOCK Magazine is in search of stylish individuals from various cities to include in their "Sartorial Splendor" feature.

To be considered, email - subject "Sartorial Splendor":
include a [stylish] Image of yourself, your Full Name, Age, Profession, City, and how you would describe your personal style or what you believe is [true] "Style".
If chosen, you'll be featured in the first issue of MOCK Magazine, the newest [independent] bi-annual fashion/art [online] magazine.

* Images must be of "," "Trendy Crew" and/or "The Sartorialist" quality!

MOCK Magazine is set to launch in May of this year. The above image is their unfinished cover page as well as their trademarked logo [the mockingbird]. The concept or inspiration behind the magazine title is the way our society or more so individuals mock fashion, mock beauty, mock other people and even mock culture. MOCK Magazine's definition of "mock" is not to ridicule or judge, but rather to mimic, imitate; to challenge and to defy the norms or perceptions of society. Their demographic or target audience would be fashion/art orientated, creative individuals that challenge/defy the norms by thinking and/or creating "out of the box".

MOCK Magazine will be clean [as in layouts], professional, edgy or "out of the box", and the magazine will be more like an European-fashion magazine [think Purple Magazine or Vogue Paris].

Ashish Gupta x Topshop Collaboration

The latest Ashish Gupta x Topshop collaboration features a sportswear range adorned in punk-inspired studs, as seen on Rihanna. The collection looks a bit similar to or influenced by Ashish's Spring/Summer 2010 collection.

The new 7-piece collection features 5 pieces in jersey fabric. The 4 pieces which include a rolled-up grey marl tracksuit trouser, a pair of matching cuffed shorts, a cropped charcoal sweatshirt (tied at the waist), a pair of studded tracksuit bottoms and a studded black sweatshirt all lend themselves to the sporty-chic aesthetic seen on the London Fashion Week Spring runway.

The other two pieces include a biker jacket featuring Ashish’s trademark 3-centimeter studs and a pair of 1970s-inspired gold platform wedges.

Of the collection, Ashish says: “Studs and spikes were a big part of my mainline collection this season, and it felt right to carry that through in some way for my range for Topshop. I love the contrast between soft sweatshirt fabric and metal spikes — it's classic sportswear meets punk.

I personally think the studded cotton sweatpants is a bit too much, in fact some of the pieces from the collaboration are a bit too far-fetched for me. Above, I've compiled a few of the pieces from the Ashish Gupta x Topshop collaboration that I truly adore.
