High-end fashion houses are slowly, but surely embracing the fact that social media is one of the best ways to directly connect with their fans.  MOSCHINO has now joined the ranks of Christian Dior, CHANEL, and others by starting a full on social media campaign titled “Pic Me by MOSCHINO”.

MOSCHINO fans will have the opportunity to personalize pictures with a choice of distinctive MOSCHINO picture frames, which will be updated constantly by the fashion house’s creative team. Pictures can then be shared with friends and social media contacts.

Once you create your “Pic Me” photo, you can add another personal touch by commenting on your photo through ‘Post It’ style graphics.

Tech: Guys- design your own shirt in 3D, BlueFlamme will tailor

Bleuflamme tailored mens shirts

Nothing tickles the SML team more than coming across tech firms that combine fashion and technology in a phenomenal way (for obvious reasons).

We recently came across BleuFlamme, catering to the dapper guy that appreciates bespoke garments–shirts in particular. Using their online 3-D  studio you can design every element of your shirt and view it in High Definition.  The shirt is then tailored in the Savile Row of Asia–Hong Kong, which also happens to be the only city in Asia ranked top tailors by AskMen.

You get your 100% pure Italian natural cotton shirt delivered in 10 days as opposed the several weeks it would normally take a traditional tailor.

With over 200 types of fabrics and patterns, everyone from the most traditional man to the funky is bound to find a style to match their taste/personality.

Here’s a How-To Video for the Bleuflamme 3D Shirt Studio:
