Armani First-Timer Liam Payne Talks Fashion, Father’s Day, and His Upcoming Collaboration With Zedd

As the crowds around the Armani Hotel this morning hinted, Liam Payne is in Milan. The gone-solo ex–One Direction member flew in from Buffalo, New York, to attend Giorgio Armani’s show, and he seemed seriously into it. Dressed in an all-navy Armani ensemble—so totally true to Giorgio’s aesthetic—he watched every look from the front row while doing a bit of chair dancing to the soundtrack. After he’d cruised the Armani showroom afterwards, displaying special interest in the new-season sunglasses, he sat down for a quick debrief. This is what he had to say.

So, did you say this is your first-ever fashion show?

Well, I went to a Victoria’s Secret fashion show a while ago, but that’s a totally different show, isn’t it? So, this is my first real fashion show. And what a wonderful space they have created in there. I thought a lot of suits were great and there was that one signature trench coat that everybody was eyeing up. That’s gonna be the be the biggest seller, I reckon. But there was also this kind of cotton jacket I really enjoyed, a bit faded. There were some great pieces out there. I did a little Boomerang of the show, but I also wanted to really observe the technique, the way the models walked out, and how it is done here. I’m getting better, I think, at understanding how outfits go, but to put pieces together, I think, is a difficult thing. And they do an amazing job here of making the pieces and then putting them together in a way that works.

Was there anything you saw today that surprised you?
The thing that really interested me was when they came out in pairs, and did I see twins at one point? It was explained to me that this is something that Mr. Armani likes to do in his shows, to show in twos sometimes, as well as one by one. And I think it’s cool. Plus they all had great hair. The music was great, too. I couldn’t stop foot trapping. I’m an air drummer when it comes to music and I was having to hold my hands together not to start drumming. You know Armani was the first brand that I was ever drawn to as a kid. Seeing the Beckham campaigns. It’s a really cool brand. The first pair of underwear I ever bought was from Armani, when I was 15, and I’ve still got them! They still fit, which is great.

Are you heading home soon, back to to your son, Bear, and partner Cheryl?
Yeah! I’m hoping to get home soon. And it was a somber Father’s Day yesterday. But bless my missus, she did the most amazing things for me. She had him dressed in a first Father’s Day outfit and sent over cards and pictures for me to carry on the road. Even talking about it now makes me a bit sad. And also, on the opposite side of it, somebody sent me something from our film, of my dad talking about missing me. And I was really emotional on the day. And I didn’t want to see my dad upset as well. So, we had a good Facetime on the plane. I said to my dad, “How strange is it that I’m a dad now?” It is the most amazing thing. And I couldn’t be happier with everything that’s going on in my life right now. I don’t see how I could get any luckier. I should go to Vegas …

No, don’t! That’s asking for trouble! So, I know there is a new single coming out in July. What’s it called?
Well, I can’t announce it because it’s Zedd’s single. But if you look around, there have been moments where we have accidentally dropped the ball. So, it’s out there, somewhere. But I really love it. In Zedd’s words it’s the catchiest song he’s ever made … I’m usually very laid back about things but this one is really exciting.

Cheers Liam!
Cheers to you!

Don’t really like the way this came out but I got exhausted working on the illustration and decided I needed a break and sketched this out. High Roller Joker’s suit is inspired by Armani brand suits, his belt is also Armani and his watch is a Rolex, not that you can really tell here… Not sure if I should keep the gloves red or make them black. Suggestions are welcome.

emilnekolakofola  asked:

Important question. Where do you think Michele and Emil shop for clothes?

OMG, this is important

I hope this answers your question!

Note: make sure to click each word with a link attached! (I also bolded them) They’re all different :)

Note 2: I copy and pasted from google drive, so if the formatting is weird then that’s why

So first we have to figure out what their usual styles are

Michele

  • It is canon that Sara helps Michele pick out some of his clothes, so surely his outfits consist of both her style and his own. He’s learned a lot from his sister and he actually does have a pretty good sense of style. In the show, he’s usually wearing his Italy jacket over his outfit, so unfortunately we can’t tell all that much what he wears. But one photo I do remember from the show is that Michele has this bomb ass coat:
  • Like?? That looks handsome af on him, i bet he has lots of coats
  • He is also seen wearing plain t-shirts, sometimes with jackets over them.
  • From just these, we can conclude that he looks hella fine in darker colors

Emil

  • I would say Emil’s style is pretty casual, even more so than Michele. He wears a lot of t-shirts/jackets and also some beach-y type stuff. (didn’t Kubo say that at some point? I thought I remembered a tweet about Emil liking beachwear, but I could be wrong)
  • So here are some examples of his outfits in the show. He clearly likes jackets/vests, and he looks hot af in them

Now that we know a little bit about their usual styles, it will be easier to figure out the kind of places they shop at/types of clothes they shop for!


  • There is actually this brand of Italian shoe that I could def see Michele wearing and also converting Emil to wearing: Supergas. They’re basically like tennis shoes except they’re a lot classier looking, but you can get fancier/more casual ones. They’re kind of like Converse, if you know what those are. (they are super comfy!)  So since Emil is the kind of guy to wear a lot of sandals, Michele would take him to get some Supergas.
  • Emil probably insists on getting some weird shoes like Birkenstocks or Crocs, and Michele is honestly so disappointed™ and he’s def not letting his man walk around like that.
  • So one of the stores they visit (probably online, unless they’re visiting a place with one of the stores) is the Superga store
  • And since Emil always has cold feet, they probably shop for funky socks for him!! (I def see his as a type to wear fun socks)
  • Michele subscribes to fashion magazines because Sara got him into them. A lot of them include super expensive brands (Gucci, Armani, etc.)
  • They don’t spend all their money on expensive clothes, but they both like to look nice, and sometimes they’ll get each other expensive things as gifts
  • Michele gets Emil an Armani leather jacket, as well as other jackets bc he looks nice af in them
  • I feel like Michele would have a thing for watches, so he’d probably splurge on a nice watch
  • Emil!!! Wearing!!! Rings!!! (besides his wedding ring, of course)
  • Michele looooves to pick out the cool shit for his man (he knows Emil doesn’t expect him to get him things all the time, but he can’t help it)
  • Emil actually has a harder time choosing things for Michele, because as we all know, Michele is a particular man, and he’s the one that knows more about fashion
  • Okay but EMIL BUYS MICHELE A SPEEDO!! He knows Michele would never buy one for himself, so…that happens (let’s be honest, we all want to see Mickey in a speedo)
  • But they go to the beach a lot, so it’s totally necessary!
  • One year for Christmas, Mickey and Emil buy each other new winter coats (M and E)
  • Michele also gets his man more sweatshirts! Plain or printed, they all look so nice on him (plus, since they’re a bigger size than his, Mickey can wear them if he wants hehehe)
  • Mickey thinks he is punny, so he gets Emil this
  • In return, Emil buys this for him, but Michele doesn’t get the meme (smh)
  • OH AND EMIL BUYS CLOTHES FOR THEIR DOG!! (But only things like sweatshirts and booties for when it’s cold out and such)
  • But also Halloween and Christmas outfits!! (Emil insists that Michele wears the spaghetti shirt he bought him so he and their dog match)
  • “Look, Mickey! His winter coat is kind of like yours!”
  • Emil also purchases new headphones for Mickey, since he only has one pair and he fears they’re going to break (he chose blue because he knows it’s one of Michele’s favorite colors)

I could go on and on about this, but I’m gonna cut it short here. Perhaps I’ll make another post like this since this one was super fun! I did a lot of research for this, ahahah. But for some reason I couldn’t find that many Czech fashion brands? I searched for a bit but couldn’t find much, so my apologies that most of brands I specifically named are Italian. 

Thank you sooo much for the ask! I hope this somewhat answered your question, and if it didn’t, I’m sorry and I hope you enjoyed this anyway.

 Have a great day!

Armani First-Timer Liam Payne Talks Fashion, Father’s Day, and His Upcoming Collab with Zedd
Vogue’s Luke Leitch caught up with the former One Direction star Liam Payne at his first Giorgio Armani show

anonymous asked:

This is really weird but what do you think Selina and Bruce smell like? What kind of perfume would they wear?

Hello anon!  That’s not weird at all.  I have an idea.  Here you go!

Bruce is very sensitive to smell.  This day, he can vividly recall his parents’ scent.  His mother always smelled floral and feminine while his father smelled masculine and musk.  After their deaths, Bruce clung to them as tightly as he could.  He preserved everything of theirs.  When their scent diminished with time, he locked their bedroom doors forever.  To trigger their memory, Bruce continues his father’s legacy by using the exact same products he used.

Anything Bruce uses was his dad’s favorite.  He uses the same brands his dad used.  That comes down to his dad’s preferred shaving gel, cologne, etc…Bruce either gets it delivered or has Alfred pick it up for him (let’s be honest.  Bruce HATES shopping).  Thomas Wayne had several brands of colognes he used (all gifts from Martha), but Martha loved Armani (refined and elegant) and Yves Saint Laurent (sophistication).  Bruce updates to the latest scent with the times, but he continues to use the same two brands.  When it comes to grooming habits, he adopted his dad’s routine.  Before the Wayne murders, Thomas and Bruce bonded over Thomas’ daily routine.  Thomas noticed Bruce was curious, so he made sure to include him in everything he could.  

When Selina came along, everything changed for Bruce.  He was suddenly aware of everything about himself and his girlfriend.  One of his favorite quirks about Selina is that she absolutely adores his scent.  Every time he took a shower, Selina would bury her nose in his chest, his middle back, or his neck (it’s her favorite since it’s his weak spot).  

She loves the naturally masculine scent of Bruce.  He smells of earth.  Selina has often referred to him smelling like sandalwood, which she loves.   Because of this, Selina bought Bruce Armani Pour Homme, which mixes citrus scents of jasmine and lavender (Selina swears the scent calms her down) with spices such as cinnamon and coriander.  The cologne has a base of sandalwood, which is a natural and instant turn-on for Selina.  She believes the scent mixes well with his natural scent.

Bruce loves Selina’s scent.  He relates it to jasmine, which is very fitting considering it is also nicknamed “Queen of the night,” and cultivated in Egypt. It is a powerful smell Bruce considers heavy and seductive.  Selina’s specific scent is one of the first things Bruce noticed about her, and it’s forever ingrained in his memory.  He considers it exceptionally feminine and intoxicating.  It evokes the feeling of peace and tranquility, which calms Bruce’s nerves.

Thanks to Alfred’s suggestion, Bruce once bought Selina Acqua Di Gioia Jasmine.  It’s an Armani brand (of course), but Selina loves it.  She wears it on special occasions because she’s such a tease.

Selina has an extensive collection of perfumes (all for “special” occasions).  Her favorite is Chanel No 5.  It was the perfume she was wearing when she met Batman.

Because Pamela is currently rehabilitating, she works for monetary compensation in botany, essential oils, etc. Selina went to her upon finding out Bruce’s beloved scents he adopted from his father.  He has no idea, but many of the soaps Selina gives to him is of sandalwood.  Selina’s soaps (and etc,) are a “special blend” that enhances her natural scent.  Maybe that’s why Bruce is nearly obsessed with her scent.  Maybe not :).
