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:

Shop My Label offers many menswear brands.  Make sure to sign up for an invite to become a Shop My Label Shopkeeper so that YOU can be stylist you’ve always wanted to be for your friends and but boost your bank while doing it!

DIY Celeb Beauty Look for the Holidays: Hillary Duff meets Brigitte Bardot

DIY celebrity beauty hair styles with Hillary Duff

There is something so glamorous about having your hair styled in classic ways.  Here, Hillary Duff gained inspiration from the ever-s0-classic Brigitte Bardot. She decided she was going to glam-up her book signing while in NYC.

“Hilary and I are always drawn to the casual glamour of Brigitte Bardot,” says hairstylist Marcus Francis.  Loved how he added a fun twist to this elegantly, mild poof by using a  playful leather studded headband.

Here’s how to DIY:

STEP 1. Treat damp hair from middle of strands to ends with Phytovolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray and work in with hands. Spray at the roots and blow-dry in sections with a vented 1 and 1/4-in. round brush.

STEP 2. Clip up a Mohawk-section of hair at crown. Prep bottom portion of remaining hair with L’Oréal Elnett StrongHold Hairspray and wrap around a 1″-in. curling iron from roots to ends, away from face. Mist curls with Phytovolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray, and brush with a paddle bristle brush for large waves. Add softness with Klorane Gentle Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk Aerosol Spray.

STEP 3. Unclip top section of hair and gently tease in 1/2-in. sections from the front hairline to the back of crown. Smooth out with paddle brush, leaving the height and messy texture intact.

STEP 4. Pull sides back at an angle into a half-up/half-down style, securing with large bobby pins underneath the hair. Top off with a thin headband placed a few inches from front hairline. Seal with a quick spray of L’Oréal Elnett StrongHold Hairspray.

Let us know if you tried this, we’d love to see pics!  Post them on our Facebook page and we’ll feature them on the SML blog!
