Karl Lagerfeld’s Quotes Will Thrill And Shock You

Karl Lagerfeld’s Quotes Will Thrill And Shock You

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Karl Lagerfeld is still on top of his game – and that’s at age 80 (!). The fashion designer, photographer and publisher just celebrated another massive success heading uber luxury brand Chanel by showcasing the latest collection in a real life Chanel supermarket made especially for the Paris fashion week show. And he is currently revamping his personal brand Karl Lagerfeld with a new logotype, new flagship stores and two new fragrances, Karl Lagerfeld For Him and For Her. Pretty nice going for an 80-year-old.

As a person he has always been surrounded by mystery, and he has himself understood to fuel the fire of perplexity by walking on the edge between eclectic and eccentric – or maybe even genius and sociopath?

A collection of famous quotes from the designer through the years published by thoughcatalog.com reveals the either/or being that is Karl Lagerfeld. Some quotes are rules to live by for anyone who wants to achieve something in the world or simply honest statements like:

“The brain is a muscle, and I’m a kind of body-builder”

“I’m a working-class person, working with class”

“My job is to bring out in people what they wouldn’t dare do themselves”

Quotes that are fitting of a creative genius driven by indisputable talent. And then there are statements like:

“My only ambition in life … is to wear size 28 jeans”

“Vanity is the healthiest thing in life”

“If I were a woman, I would love to have lots of kids. But for men, I don’t believe in it”

“I am not a second option person. It is that or nothing. If it is not the way I see it I prefer not to see it”

Quotes that speak of a visionary tyrant with sociopathic tendencies… Either way Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy and legend is already larger than life.

If you desire to speak ‘Karl’, well, there’s an app for that! Along with the launch of the two fragrances, Karl Lagerfeld has launched emotiKarl – a series of emojis for your smartphone. You can download the app right here and, of course, directly on your phone.

Also, check out the full list of famous quotes here and take a look at his new fragrance Karl Lagerfeld For Him (out now) along with a few emoji emotiKarls below.

Will you be speaking Karl?

Get The Latest Brief About Boxers

Get The Latest Brief About Boxers

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

You know how you used to be able to say a lot about a guy from his underwear? You know the old ‘boxers or briefs’ question? Well, today that line is totally blurred because it’s not about either or anymore – there is plethora of styles out there from boxer to the tiniest briefs and everything in between. Add to the equation that boxer shorts have been denounced to being almost solely for sleeping in, because compared to underwear that actually cups, cuddles and even enhances your junk, the almost commando feel of boxers is one most guys can do without – plus boxers do such a lousy job at ‘concealing your weapon’ if you suddenly find yourself ‘at arms’ (insert not so subtle wink-wink here…).

Then again, there are advantages to boxer shorts because they do provide you with a freer feeling where everything isn’t strapped in by stretchy cotton or nylon… If only your package was better… erm, packaged.

To the rescue: 2EROS with their new boxer shorts with front cup lining! You get sexy, low-cut boxer shorts with a comfortable front lining, which will keep everything in place, so you get the comfort of the boxer with the cupping of a brief. And that, might we add, is both a flattering look and extremely comfortable at the same time!

You can head over to Boy Next Door, which carries 2EROS, or head over to 2eros.com to check out even more styles. And as an added bonus we’ve included a few extra sexy shots of models in 2EROS boxer shorts below. See how that front cup lining works wonders? Enjoy!

Interview: Nicholas Komor Is Fighting For Fashion

Interview: Nicholas Komor Is Fighting For Fashion

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Atlanta has been rooting for our hometown designer Nicholas Komor all season on Lifetime’s “Project Runway: Under the Gunn” hosted by Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn. Clearly, fashion runs through Nicholas’ veins. But this talented Atlanta designer and Georgia Tech graduate has many different creative endeavors under his belt. FENUXE caught up with Nicholas to talk about his journey to becoming a full-fledged designer.

It’s a chilly afternoon in Atlanta’s Virginia Highlands neighborhood when I meet with Nicholas Komor in Cacao, a small but fine chocolate specialty shop. It’s the very shop where he put his own mark on pretty much everything as their former creative director. “Kristen [Hard, the founder, ed.] is a friend and she needed a ton of help with packaging. Everything looked very different just a year ago,” Nicholas tells me over a cup of delicious mocha, “I single-handedly was doing everything to change it all.” Part of the successful transformation of Cacao was also Nicholas’ ability to bring big business thinking to a small business – something he has learned as a Design Manager at Coca-Cola. While working at Atlanta’s soda favorite created visual identity systems for popular brands like Coca-Cola and Sprite. However, despite his talent for creating corporate visual identities, Nicholas’ heart beats for fashion. “I was just really interested in getting back into fashion,” Nicholas says with “getting back” being the key phrase.

Nicholas started out here in Atlanta at Georgia Tech where he graduated with a degree in industrial design. While studying his interest in fabrics grew and he explored how they function differently. For instance, conductive thread that would allow your clothing to interact with your computer in a more intuitive way. With Georgia Tech stoking his passion for fabrics and fashion Nicholas moved to London where he enrolled in the London College of Fashion. “I studied fashion and then worked on Savile Row for a while. Not sewing but interfacing with the customers, and through that I was getting the idea and taste for luxury,” Nicholas explains, “And that’s the world I love: Luxury clothing, design, chocolate, bags – luxury things!”

After his time in London and subsequent return to Atlanta, Nicholas found his way back to fashion when he landed a spot on “Project Runway: Under the Gunn.” The show is hosted by Project Runway mentor Tim Gunn and it’s quite different from the original. The challenges are shorter and the contestants are indeed under the gun from the very start. After receiving brief instructions the contestants have to create an actual piece that is fitted and ready for the runway. “After going through a whole casting process, I basically shut down my life and went to L.A. to be on the show,” Nicholas says about his participation on the Lifetime show. “It’s very interesting working under these challenges, where you have to come up with something really fast. You have six hours and that is really all you get. Imagine conceiving something, trying to make out if you have something right and then cutting, sewing and making a final piece, which needs to be fitted to be on the runway in only six hours. It is really, really challenging and you’ll hear me on the show saying after every challenge: “I wish I had more time!”

Nicholas’ unique background also makes the competition a little more challenging. He describes his own process as European, which he attributes to his schooling in London. It’s more cerebral and focuses on taking the brief to heart and really making something out of it – something that is practically the opposite of what the TV show calls for. But, so far, Nicholas Komor has cleared all of the challenges on “Under the Gunn” so he must be doing something right. Maybe it’s his ability to start at the beginning, to have a blank slate before each process, which is a creative release the show celebrates.

“I’m curious now, when America starts watching, [to see] if the viewers want more women’s wear from Nicholas Komor when the show is over. I have no idea”, the designer ponders aloud about his future plans. His goal is to create an all encompassing brand focused on fashion. But for starters he is directing his attention toward creating a Nicholas Komor bag – a black luxury unisex tote bag in mixed materials. Creating a quality bag is a good place to start for Nicholas. Focusing at first on this piece will allow him to control the process and ensure the final product meets his standards. This will remain important as there are several people helping him with the details of taking it to market. For instance, he is collaborating with a colleague who graduated from college with him that specializes in leather accessories. “The bag starts with a Kickstarter to raise necessary funds to produce it and it will either be a success or a failure. The Kickstarter project will be up in the coming months”, Nicholas explains about the bag that will proudly bear his name one day. Eager to know what he is planning to do after the bag goes into production? He’s also working on a golden bee pin that is inspired by the vintage pin he wears everywhere he goes.

Either way, Nicholas is starting out sensibly on his journey toward making it big some day. He’s testing the waters without getting burnt financially along the way. “I’ve learned that you can’t just invest all your money and put out an entire collection with no marketing strategy. I don’t know how some of the other designers coming off the show are doing it,” Nicholas explains. “What I’ve learned – mainly from Coca-Cola but also from ‘Under the Gunn’ – is how to take all the design and theory and then apply a business strategy to it in order to make it work. So you know what your work is worth. That will also help you to be able to explain to people why what you do will change their life in some way. And why they should buy it,” Nicholas says as we finish our drinks Cacao. 

 UPDATE: Nicholas Komor was voted off Project Runway: Under The Gunn on February 27, but we will look for his Kickstarter project to launch soon – and of course tune in to “Project Runway: Under The Gun” Thursdays at 9 p.m on Lifetime to see who wins the show.

Aussiebum Goes Spartan.. uhm, Tartan!

Aussiebum Goes Spartan.. uhm, Tartan!

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

Remember how the movie ’300′ from 2007 wow’ed us all with a slew of super-fit male actors including Michael Fassbender, David Wenham and of course the incredibly ripped Gerard Butler? And how Mel Gibson impressed as the Scottish blue-in-the-face warlord in 1995′s Braveheart (well before he went rogue)?

It seems Australian underwear brand Aussiebum has compiled the aesthetics of both movies into the promotion of their new Lionheart underwear with a preview video that showcases a lot of bulge front and back of models flaunting all they’ve got in the battlefield. After all tartan does rhyme with spartan…

Naturally, no blood is being shed in the clip, but we’re convinced that the hot clip might cause sweaty palms and some biting of the lip so beware when checking out the video below.

After watching head over to aussiebum.com to pick out your own Lionheart underwear!

The Best Dressed Men Of The 2014 Oscars

The Best Dressed Men Of The 2014 Oscars

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

In case you missed it (living on that other planet of yours) the 86th Academy Awards aired last night from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. As usual a big part of the Oscars broadcast came from the pre-show red carpet where the stars of the silver screen arrived looking their very best. And as usual the focus stayed mainly on the female movie stars and their lavish gowns and accessories. So, instead of looking at the dresses, we’ll be looking at what the men wore – particularly, who wore it best – because that’s more how we roll…

Generally speaking, the men of the Oscars kept it classic with only a few diversions from the tux and bow tie look. Pharrell wore shorts with his tux jacket, Will Smith opted for unbuttoned shirt and silk scarf and Zac Efron went for a fitted suit and slim tie. Otherwise, it was pretty much old school Hollywood red carpet for the guys. For more stylish gents from the gold-plated event take a look at the gallery below.

Put A little Pomp Into Your Do

Put A little Pomp Into Your Do

By Mikkel Hyldebrandt

If you’ve ventured out into Atlanta’s gay nightlife, you have no doubt come across the so called undercut hairstyle. It’s where the sides have been cropped short and there is an abrupt, disconnected line to longer hair on top – myself being one of those proudly rocking the look. After all, it has already been named the hairstyle to rule them all!

But now there’s a new style in town – and it’s inspired and named after the mistress of King Loius XV, Madame de Pompadour. So yes, the look was initially a women’s hairstyle with the sides tight and the hair on the top of the hair worn high. But cut to the 1950s in America when a guy named Elvis Presley sported the do, made it his signature look and forever changed hair history.

Today, the pompadour has experienced tweaks and revisions making it mostly based on the popular undercut with more distinct transitions between short and long hair. With the pompadour, the hair on the sides and the back of your head can be cut extremely short, even with a barber shop fade, or it can be longer. As long as it is not as long as the hair on top, which can be up to 6-7 inches long. The cool thing about the pompadour (and the undercut) is that it is extremely flexible and suits just about any facial shape. You can wear the hair ‘high and tight’ or you can do a nice side part and sweep the hair to the side if it has to be very proper. Or you can just let the locks fly and enjoy having longer hair (without really having long hair because the sides are still cut short). See how it works out in every way?

But if you want to style your hair in a modern pompadour, here are a few styling tips:

Use a volumizing product and comb through the towel-dry hair
・ Use a blowdryer and use your hand to com through the hair – make sure you create lift on the top and keep the sides tight
・ When the hair is dry, apply a creamy styling product to the hair to further slick it back and tame loose locks and hairs. Don’t be overly generous with the product as it may weigh your hair down.

We suggest American Crew Boost Cream and Malin + Goetz Sage Styling Cream – both available at Groominglounge.com.

The modern Pompadour in all it’s glory: cropped sides, a strong side part and longer hair on top.
