OUR FRIENDS AT HEDDELS VISIT FDMTL STUDIO

On the radar this week, we are zooming into our friends at Heddels who produced a tasty studio visit to FDMTL in Tokyo.

History is what inspires and informs who we are here at Ponytail Journal. It guides us forwards, inspires us to create, and perhaps gives us space to revisit our own identity. This week’s w’menswear editorial is much a reflection of history’s greatness that we strive to keep alive. The setting is much inspired by early portraiture that characterised early photography where thought, consideration, styling and the preciousness of each shot were made it special.

OUR INSIDER MENSWEAR PICKS FROM PARIS / GQ DOT COM

Last week saw more hashtag menswear around Paris and online. Parts are still trickling down the web at the moment. Buyers, press, and internet famous dudes flew in to see next season goodness like technical gear, rare weaves, interesting colour ways, and what kind of flavour the future market will be. Here I scouted some of my nerdy favourites from the MAN show, because to be honest it was a stand out in terms of curated coolness. My eye-popping, jaw dropping finds were published on GQ.com for y’all to take in.
