Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - THE BAZAAR MAN -

There’s noth­ing more al­lur­ing that be­ing ad­dressed as Ms. Kraal, es­pe­cially when sala­ciously un­wrap­ping black tis­sue to un­cover yet another men’s shirt – for my­self. As a woman who shops on Mr Porter and who fol­lows Pitti Uomo – also to ad­mire those

print-and-pin­striped pea­cocks – it’s clear that I have a thing for menswear. My sig­na­ture aes­thetic, af­ter all, is the se­duc­tive bal­ance of man/woman, with a

Boy bag and the high­est heels – some­times a man’s coat in the win­ter. It’s a thrilling time for menswear now. It seems like the last 100 years of sar­to­ri­al­ism has fi­nally evolved into this won­der­ful era of ex­per­i­men­ta­tion where dandy prints meet Sav­ile Row tai­lor­ing meets Ja­panese fab­rics meet whim­si­cal ac­ces­soris­ing, all worn with real con­fi­dence and a sense of dar­ing. This edi­tion of BAZAAR Man opens right here withh the Au­tumn/Win­ter ’15 trends, which pay trib­ute to thrilling style gen­res that celebrate that patic­u­lar male flam­boy­ance of Bri­tish rock stars and mod­ern-day literati.

I’m al­ready eye­ing some pieces … Fash­ion then segues into the per­son­al­i­ties who wear it well in ‘The A-List’ (page 12), where cre­ative movers and cor­po­rate shakers make style a 24/7 oc­cu­pa­tion. I’m par­tic­u­larly y drawn to vi­sion­ar­ies Alexan­dre de Be­tak and Justin O’Shea, who have rev­o­lu­tion­ized menswear through the work they do, pre­sent­ing it with cre­ative depth

and vis­ual in­tel­li­gence. Cover man Bront Palarae was on this list in the 2013 edi­tion, and be­cause we were so im­pressed by his style in ev­ery­thing he did, wore, said, we just had to make

him a big­ger story (‘Rebel, Rebel!’ on page 22). Add the ac­cou­trements of pock­ets squares, cool bar­bers, and the art­ful home of one of the city’s coolest

mover & shaker, and you’ve got the most stylish is­sue of BAZAAR Man.
