1º Aniversary | Fash&Mark

3 Mar

Sometimes this is a fashion blog

Sometimes this in an anti-fashion blog, against silly empty girls

Sometimes this is a Marketing blog

Sometimes this blog hates marketing’s deceiving campaigns

Sometimes this is an activist blog

Sometimes this is an humanitarian blog just about social causes

Sometimes this is just a blog with cute images

Sometimes this is a blog with meaningful quotes

Sometimes this is an ecological blog

At times it is even a sponsored blog

But every single time it’s a reflection of me!

Happy Birthday Fash&Mark! :)

Thank you!

Thanks to the ones who follow, the ones who read, the ones who just want cute images, the ones who sponsor, the ones who like and dislike when the subject touches their hearts or goes against their beliefs. Also thanks to the ones who are trying to shut down Fash&Mark asking to “cease and desist”.

Ethnic Trend strikes again…

Le Modern Baroque!

24 Feb

You know what I love? Baroque style! It’s something that I really admire since I was little and I saw those voluptuous dresses on some movie, for the first time! Those extravagant hair styles, the glamorous patterns and textures, those dresses’ curved shapes and, of course, the exuberant make-up! All the details made my eyes shine of amazement! Well… I guess it still does.

I collected some products that were inspired by ‘Le Baroque’ style! Oh! Oui mademoiselle! J’adore!

NYC | Fashion

6 Feb

These are pictures of last year’s fashion shop windows, but as you can see everything is still so trendy!

I was not allowed to take photos at Alexander McQueen Savage beauty exhibition, which was really sad but comprehensible. Believe me it was amazing to be so close to those pieces of art.

NYC | People

31 Jan

I came back with the best of impressions about New Yorkers! They are really nice, helpful and ready to chat!
It was unbelievable how many times people started conversations on the streets, bars, but specially cafes and restaurants! Usually they asked to seat on my table and started talking and talking and talking! It was so fun! And I was there listening and chatting with a complete stranger with the biggest poker face ever, wondering “Is this normal here or am I just on a lucky strike!”
Check out some photos I took to some cool people in NYC :) (compressed or else it would take ages to upload)

Social Keds

25 Jan

It looks like today it’s all about the Internet and Social Media! We can’t pass one day without searching something on Google, learn a bit on Wikipedia, writing on some blog or going social on Facebook, Twitter and its fellow wannabes…

All this plays an important role in our lives today, and despite our denial, you know it’s true! Come on… We all saw the protests against SOPA and PIPA some days ago, when the government decided it wanted to censor our beloved Internet!

Taking advantage of all this love and addiction Keds asked itself: if people love internet so much, wouldn’t they like it feature in their shoes?

And then… Internet just landed on your feet!

I think they should have one with all the TUMBLR rage faces… Just sayin’

 

Erasmus Best Friend|Pumpack

16 Dec

Did you study abroad or consider doing so? If you did, you know that you feel like taking everything with you. We never know how the weather will be, the fashion trends up there, who we gonna meet or even where we gonna go… So we want to take everything we have, just in case Prince Charming decides to appear and we have a prom-like dress to look like a his princess.

Of course I am exaggerating as usual, but I believe everyone has crazy thoughts like that when going abroad for a long period…

When I found this new Suitcase, I was thrilled! Finally a clever and useful idea for travelers –  a Vacuum Packed Suitcase.

While other brands are investing in suitcases with an expandable hood to accommodate more clothes, PUMPACK includes a pump that helps to compress clothes to make more packing room.

  • No more seating on top of your suitcase to close it
  • No more “Shit I can’t take this, cause it doesn’t fit”
  • No more wearing all the clothes you can, and looking like a snowman at the airport, because you can put them in your bag
  • No more paying for extra luggage! YEY!!

Pumpack is a 2011 red dot design concept winner.

Designers: Yejee Lee, Jongchan Mun, Seobin Oh and Woneui Hong

Helmet Experiments by Igor Mitin

7 Dec

One day, Igor Mitin decided that helmets were pretty boring… So he thought that maybe he could make them more appealing.

Igor Mitin created 14 different helmet concepts, which unfortunately are not for sale. These helmet experiments make a statement and are definitely a conversation starter.

See for yourself!

Which one is your favorite?

Attention Boys & Girls

27 Nov

A new creative underwear brand was born! You know how I love new and crazy concepts, right?

“Less underwear conversation and a little bit more action”

Jac5 is a super luxury’s men brand with a fun vision that was released on 11-11-11, so it already promised to be special. It is an underwear brand for men with comfortable and stylish undies (Armani, Diesel and Calvin Klein are competitors, so you know what I’m talking about!).

Why is Jac5 so cool?

Well, the brand identity was driven by… a dog, to be accurate, a Jack Russel Terrier: loyal, smart and, at times, barking mad. Surprised? (I find specially interesting the “barking mad” characteristic in underwear… I wonder what they mean with that… is that kinky?)

I love the way they defined their brand mission with a witty remark – “to create the best undies for man’s best friend” – got the pun?

Stores

Of course Jac5 store offers a truly unique retail experience! Besides buying underwear, which at times is already quite adventurous, you also can enjoy some art. Yes, there is an art gallery inside the store that supports up and coming artists through it “art and undies” program!

I wish I could go there (Hong Kong)… To have an idea how the experience might be, just look at this pic

Despite all this cool stuff, the brand creator is also pretty smart, cause he knows what this business is about :p

“We´re not just about men, it’s important to us that women also enjoy what we have to offer (after all, they are the primary influence in what men wear!)”

Wanting more? Check out JAC5 online store (they have free international shipping. YEY!)

Androgynous is the New Black

14 Nov

As usual on this blog, we gonna show you that you haven’t seen it all yet… Nope, you didn’t!

The world is changing, the times are changing… basically everything is. Men included!

Girls always had the chance to dress thousands of cool outfits through times – dresses, skirts, trousers, shorts, sexy lingerie – to paint their nails with every color available in this world, to drink for free in bars, and to use make-up. Guys always kinda envied that. We had benefits all the time!! And if they even tried to think about that, they were labeled as gays and ostracized by society. Well people… That’s not going to happen on our generation watch!

Behold for the new and magnificent products adapted to the modern man. Our amazing generation took the WO of “woman products”, broke the rules, ended cultural stereotypes, sexism and discrimination! Fuck yeah!

Guys, you have no more reasons to be ashamed! Let’s paint your nails and put you on some heels!

 

Heels for men

Mark Cramer and Coy Barton – 2 men with no fear at some NYC party!

“I literally look at girls and think, you have so many options. You have jumpers, you have skirts, you have dresses, you have pants, you have shorts. Boys have pants and shorts. Or suits and a shirt.” Coy Barton 

To use heels “’It’s a power thing. You’re higher than everybody else. You make more sound. You walk a different way. It makes your legs look better,” said  Alexander – a man who claims having 30 pairs of women’s heels.(source)

 

 

MAN-icure

EvolutionMan, founded by makeup artist Marco Berardini, recently launched a line of men’s nail polishes to meet the increasing manicure needs of males everywhere.

 

Manly Beauty Products

Face smooth like baby’s skin and imperfections covered – special products designed for a virile man’s face. Want more?

 

What’s  your opinion about this new trend?

Swallowable Perfume

2 Nov

That awkward moment when you buy a new perfume – which was just released – and you realize that you are old-fashioned. Spray perfume? Jeez, that is so last year!

Lucy McRay, an Amsterdam-based artist, and Sheref Mansy, a synthetic biologist, just created a swallowable perfume that emits fragrance from the skin.

Now, by steps:

  1. There’s a capsule containing synthetic fragrant lipid molecules
  2. You swallow it
  3. The molecules get metabolized by the body’s enzymes
  4. Then fragrant molecules are released through the skin
  5. Temperature, stress, exercise or sexual arousal will determine the strength of the fragrance. Your body has the power to create an unique fragrance
  6. At this moment, you took the expression “beautiful inside” to another level

Despite the announcement in August, Swallowable Parfum was not yet released; it’s still in the research phase. So you have time to “digest” all this info

I don’t know your opinion about this, but for me it’s too freaky! I’ll take a risk of being old-fashioned here! To eat perfume it’s not an option for me yet. What about you? Willing to experiment the new Swallowable Parfum?

OuterSpace Fashion | The Next Big Thing

21 Oct

Belive me when I say, that this is going to be the next big thing!

2012/2013 is going to be all about this trend! And I absolutely ADORE!

You can also see more about this trend in this older post from Fash&Mark

I want them ALL! If you love it too, here it is the best shop I found – Black Milk

What do you think about this new trend?

 

(((The Ticklers)))

18 Oct

 “Combining great shapes and colors with an intimidating amount of power and a choice of speeds and pulsations we are truly something else. They are still Ticklers though, waterproof, made from super-smooth body-safe silicone and very, very quiet. So, still part of the family, just a bit more grown up.”

Still a bit confused about what this is?

Starting by its name it already looks pretty interesting.  The Ticklers is a new brand of Swedish-designed vibrators (Ikea someone?) in which design and concept are put in focus.

Ticklers are charged by USB and they look like a modern design artifact, you can even put it in a shelf in a visible place at home, that no one will ever guess.

 

Do you dare? Visit the website to see more ticklers!

Nature Jewelry | Sarah Hood

7 Oct

It will look great with your tribal or nude style :)

“My work consists of several collections of unique jewelry pieces ranging from very wearable limited edition jewelry to one-of-a-kind sculptural art jewelry. My pieces are a constant exploration of the natural world, both its forms and its materials. I’m drawn to archetypes, those images floating beneath our collective consciousness–a perfect circle, an elongated leaf, a bare tree. I love striking profiles, elegant design, and unexpected combinations of materials. “ Sarah Hood | jewelry artist

Trends for the Average Men

23 Sep

Well girls, this post is entirely dedicated to boys. They also deserve to be aware of what’s fashionable at the moment. I haven’t seen a lot of posts for boys on other “girls’ blogs”. Of course there are a lot of fashion blogs and websites focused on men fashion, but as you all know, not all the boys like extravagant clothes or care about what’s going on on ALL the runways and specially, they are not interested in dressing golden trousers with a fancy cowboy hat and a pink purse (yes, I’m exaggerating! But you got the point)

Dear Boys,

If You:

  • Have a pretty normal life
  • Pass great time of your day at your work or school,
  • Don’t have much time to dress up in the morning
  • Don’t care at all about high fashion
  • Dress pretty much without light, because it’s fucking in the morning and you don’t want to open your eyes
  • Still ask your mom or girlfriends to help you with “shopping time”
  • Aim to look at the mirror and feel like “the only guy in the world” (that’s asking too much, stop acting like a girl!)
  • Want to look pretty, be fashionable (in an acceptable way) and hear someone saying “wow man, you look great today” or “love those shoes”

Well, then probably you will like this post. No more chat-chat, I’ll show you the latest trends for the coolest average man!

 

Accessories

Guys, one really really important accessory that should make part of all your outfits during Fall and Winter is THE SCARF! Do never leave home without it! Despite keeping you warm (yeah, yeah boring stuff), it makes you extremely hot! No kidding! It adds the extra “je ne sais quoi” to your look.

And some nice gloves

And a bag

 

Fall/Winter Average Outfit (H&M)

 

And look at this… huh… I mean… shorts! Will look nice on the beach. (girls, this one is for you!)

Converse | The App

21 Sep

Sometimes it can be a big problem to buy online, because you’ll never know how the product will fit you.

To solve this problem, Converse developed a new app that allows you to “try” the shoes before you buy it. It’s easy, simple and cool.

 

See here how it works
