"When i was a boy, skincare meant washing my face after a baskeball game. now I’m all grown up an d an actor i realize that success is 100 % hardwork and 100% appearances. So I cleanse, I tone, and I moisturize everyday and everynight.
Skin is definitely the new measure of a man. Especially, in this industry, I believe it is important for a man to maintain his appearance. Our skin is the most obvious reflection of our age. Every guy should take 10 to 15 minutes daily to wash his face.
One of by beauty essentials has to be the SK-II MEN Facial Treatment Essence as really helps hydrate the skin and keeps the healthy-looking tone on my face throughout the day. I also use a tweezer to keep my stubble neat. I trimmed it every three or four days just to keep it to a shape I like.”

For Fall/Winter 2014, Wooyoungmi decided to present the lookbook for her other labelSolid Homme on a model instead of on starkly static mannequins. The result is a collection that seems full of movement while remaining distinctly architectural as per the designer’s signature construction style. Outerwear is the keyword for the line, not only presenting warm weather essentials but also statement pieces like a heather gray long coat with elongated sleeves and jackets in interesting shades of cerulean. Solid Homme continue on with the high-end sneaker trend, as well as the sandal styled with socks. We like it. See the clothes in motion here. (By Elaine YJ Lee)
Youthful innovation abounds in Sissi Goetze’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. This season the Central Saint Martins alumnus teamed up with illustrator Antonio Stella to present her very first printed shirts.
Stella in turn called on subdued floral motifs meant to bring to mind the classic, easy-going feel the of Mediterranean lifestyle. To juxtapose the relaxed, languorous nature of the Mediterranean inspiration, Goetze combined the motifs with re-imagined traditional summer wear, specifically drawing influence from ‘80s South Bronx fashion. And with the presence of striped shorts, sporty pants, and what can perhaps be called man-style cap sleeved tees, the collection is indeed a coherent combination of the contemporary and a flashback to the ‘80s.
Goetze also brought back the “hybrid sleeve” which has become a bit of a trademark for her. The half raglan, half classic sleeve is meant to create a smoother, more prominently shaped shoulder. It’s a now-familiar unique touch you’ll find on all of the tops and jackets in the Spring collection. (By Stephanie Smith-Strickland)
