Dolce&Gabbana Spring/Summer 2023 Men’s fashion show, Re-Edition, revisits its historical archive.
The heritage of the brand is presented by demonstrating the idea of building modernity from the past; a past that also feels contemporary, full of identity and uniqueness.
Understanding and reworking our roots in depth is fundamental for designing and creating an innovative vision and interpretation of the past.
Presented on the catwalk today are some garments that characterized the iconic collections from the 90s/00s.
Used in a fresh and new context the same pieces are assembled with new items to create and define a modern-day male silhouette and dialogue.
Garments and accessories feature a cotton label with the inscription “Re-Edition” that identifies the year the garment was first presented and that of the new S/S 2023; each garment, thus, has a different, unique and exclusive label.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana fuse shapes & volume that characterized these archive collections with a surprising modernity featuring a patchwork concept on both denim and cotton.
Denim, trousers, jackets, crocheted knitwear, all handmade, are oversized and layered, featuring various pockets, transparencies, precious embroideries applied on shirts, T-shirts and jackets.
Unmistakable details of the Dolce&Gabbana universe.
Fabrics such as cotton and drill co-exist with classic lace and brocade, and modern fabrics treated with innovative processes create vintage and tactile 3-D effects.
The combination of colors recall Sicilian terrain such as the cream of Ortigia, sands of Mondello, Kalsa brown and amber, black lava, white carredo, and grey basaltina.

Most people have been there, you’re enjoying a nice hot shower and want to wash your hair. That’s when you realize you have no shampoo left. If you’re lucky you have two options.
- Use the man’s shampoo in the shower
- Get out of the shower and check your cupboards for another bottle of shampoo
Let’s face it, number two is never an appealing option!
Fortunately, the simple answer to whether women can use men’s shampoo is yes. Let’s take a look at why this is the case.
Before you start delving into men’s and women’s shampoos, it is important to remember that products are designed for specific types of hair. It’s important to choose a product designed for your hair type and one that has natural ingredients. If you’re still looking for the best possible shampoo then try one from the Kerastase shampoo range. You’ll be impressed.
The Difference between Women’s & Men’s Shampoos
The main difference is obvious as soon as you open the bottle, the aroma will hit you. All cultures have products for men that smell differently from those made for women. In general, women’s shampoos have a more floral smell while men’s are more masculine, perhaps earthy smelling.
What is interesting is that the aroma may be different but the product is basically the same.
In other words, the ingredients are designed for certain types of hair, they are the same regardless of which sex shampoo you have. It’s simply the aroma that makes a difference.
Marketing Plays A Part
By itself, this may not be enough to convince you to purchase a women’s shampoo over a man’s. However, manufacturers are very clever and use marketing to ensure you know which is which
This helps to increase the amount of shampoo sold which is good for business.
- The Bottle
A key part of the marketing is showing adverts that depict men using a certain product and women using another. All the adverts express the same sentiment as the packaging. Namely, male things are used to sell male shampoo.
In marketing terms, a male shampoo is more likely to reflect a car, a famous spy, or something else that men perceive as masculine. Failing this, they are likely to be plain and simple.
Women’s products are more likely to be floral and softer to look at and hold. The design of the bottle is often more natural, even holistic.
- Aromas Chosen
Men are generally associated with musky and earthy smells, while women have more floral smells. Products are deliberately marketed differently with the various scents to ensure that men feel more masculine and women more feminine.
Yet, the two products are effectively identical, you simply need to read the ingredients and the differences will be minor. In fact, the differences are likely to revolve around the aroma and nothing else.
Consider this next time you look at the available products, although you’re still likely to choose your favourite natural women’s shampoo. At least you know you can borrow your man’s when you need to.

But it’s also about challenging myself and exploring different land. That is creative freedom.”

G-SHOCK EXPANDS PINNACLE MR-G SERIES WITH NEW MODELS IN THE CLASSIC SQUARE SHAPE OF THE FIRST EVER G-SHOCK
Premium Timepieces Feature 25 Individually Polished Components Assembled Precisely for a Timepiece that Showcases Craftsmanship
Casio introduces the newest additions to its pinnacle G-SHOCK MR-G lineup with the launch of the MRGB5000 series. With the new models, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1, the trademark square shape of the original G-SHOCK DW5000 is elevated to provide shock resistance with the addition of premium materials and the artisan craftsmanship and quality that the MR-G series represents. The enhanced bezel and case have been constructed of 25 individual components with Sallaz polishing applied to each part prior to assembly, giving the watches a stunning, elegant finish.
The new MRGB5000 models pay homage to the original G-SHOCK, DW5000C, by retaining the iconic brick pattern and red outline of the original G-SHOCK dial design. The MRGB5000B-1 is crafted with a DLC coating on the case and band to deliver enhanced wear resistance and a sleek, all-black look that pays tribute to G-SHOCK’s signature brand color. Gold-colored ion plating on the buttons and screw-lock case back evoke the refinement of the MR-G series as well. The silver-colored MRGB5000D-1 is made with a titanium carbide finish to enhance the beauty of its bezel and band.
The bezels of the new timepieces are made from premium materials, such as COBARION, a cobalt-chrome alloy that is four times harder than titanium and is part of a 25-piece Multi-Guard Structure, specifically developed for the MRGB5000, to protect the module with superior shock-absorption by incorporating flat springs and resin buffers between the components of the watch. Additionally, Ti64 is used for the case and the band employs DAT55G, a titanium alloy about three times harder than pure titanium to further enhance the absolute toughness of the models.
In addition, the MRGB5000D-1 and MRGB5000B-1 boast premium G-SHOCK technical features including Bluetooth® functionality that allows the watch to be connected to a smartphone via the CASIO Watches app, MULTIBAND 6 Atomic Timekeeping, Tough Solar Charging, Super LED illumination, and more.
As part of the release, G-SHOCK has unveiled an exclusive collection page taking consumers through the features, which can be viewed HERE.

When it comes to shoes, there are some brands that have stood the test of time. Timberland, Nike, Converse and adidas all have iconic kicks that have been gracing our feet for decades.
Here, we give you a run down of the most iconic men’s shoes of all time, which are all still available today.
The Timberland Boots
The first Timberland boots were released in 1973, and they are still a bestseller today. As a boot fit for both work and play, it is the versatility of the Timberland that has kept them in the spotlight.
They are soft and made of quality materials. With a waterproof leather upper and lug rubber outsole, Timberland boots are not only stylish, but they’re also comfortable — and something every man should have in his collection. These boots do come in a few different colors, but the tan hue is at the top of our list. While Timberlands have always been iconic, hip hop artists such as Kanye West have taken them to the next level of cool.
The Nike Air Max Sneakers
When you own a pair of Nike Air Max kicks, they will be so much more than a typical pair of sneakers. First released in 1987, these retro shoes come in just about any color scheme you can imagine. Known for the cushioned base and that “window to the sole,” the brand wanted to show fans the air that was hidden inside. The idea to pump up the sole with air originally came from Frank Rudy, an aeronautical engineer who had experience with NASA.
Each season we see small changes to the Nike Air Max range, but they still have that ’80s bounce we all know and love.
The Converse Chuck Taylors
Another shoe that is rich in history is the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars. These basketball babes were first invented in 1917, but Chuck Taylor wasn’t completely satisfied with the design.
He asked for more support in 1922, and they have been an icon ever since. Converse shoes come in different cuts, but we really can’t go past the high tops. They can be worn with any outfit, and really do scream retro fashion. Whether it is black, white or red, it’s that star that will keep these legends popular well into the future.
The Adidas Originals Superstar
Another shoe that we have been coveting for 50 years is the Adidas Originals Superstar. Its rubber shell toe cap and flexibility made it a direct competitor against Converse in the basketball market.
Adidas is a pop culture favorite, and while the Superstar may have started as a basketball shoe, it now has its place on the street. The 80s’ hip hop scene helped propel this shoe into the spotlight, as Run DMC proudly wore the three stripes.
An Iconic Shoe Is a Must-Have
Shoes aren’t just for working and running, they can be the finishing touch to your look. Some shoes are made to be worn for life, and a pair of Timberlands, Nike Airs, Adidas Originals or Converse Chuck Taylor’s have long-term appeal.
No matter what the season or the occasion, these iconic shoes will be there to make a statement. Plus, they are all made with comfort and support in mind.

Possessing snap-on lace guards as well as a removable sock extension, his designer tennis shoes are ideal for any major music festival attendee.

Whatever the case, FB has struck gold by making a dynamic tier for fashion/istas and mavens during a period of personal style. With durability, customization on a whim coupled with a generous price point, this layer is soon to be SOLD OUT by Gen X, Y and Z.
Established in 2013, self-taught designer Franky Baca set out to construct his first garments. The brand drew inspiration from nature, architecture, classic paintings, motion pictures and his Bay Area neighborhood, ultimately creating a sense of individuality for both men and women.
In 2014, their products were available to the public using futuristic yet historic silhouettes, its singularity is what differentiated the collection from what’s already been offered in the marketplace.
Franky says “My goal in creation is for the customer to question why something so different from there style is still beautiful to them. I want to challenge them to what they thought they knew about beauty. I always wanted to design clothing and loved fashion but I was hesitant because I didn’t want to design for others. I thought it took away from my individuality. I realized I could never be them and they could never be me, and I knew I must move forward. We need to inspire people and it’s the inspired people that create heroes of tomorrow.”
