Matthew Miller Autumn/Winter 2018 – There’s a Riot Going On

January 10, 2018

Matthew Miller is probably the most exciting menswear designer working in London today, so it seems appropriate for his Autumn/Winter 2018 event to unofficially open this season’s London Fashion Week Men’s. Always a step ahead of the pack, Miller eschewed the traditional catwalk show to present his latest collection as part of a three-hander music […]

JW Anderson x Alasdair McLellan – Size Matters

January 10, 2018

Jonathan Anderson has grown up in the fashion industry’s eye, from wunderkind to seasoned veteran in just a decade. Possibly one of the most avant-garde designers working in London today, Anderson sees his men’s and women’s clothes as interchangeable, which usually means some challenging menswear looks, including co-ordinating strapless tops and frilled shorts, and jumpsuits […]

Jean Louis Scherrer 1970s silk chiffon dress

December 1, 2017

I’m a massive fan of the less conspicuous couture houses that still reek of discreet, old-style glamour but have yet to be re-invented or re-imagined. Where there’s not a Kardashian in sight, nor a whiff of Alexa Chung or Rita (H)Ora. Jean Louis Scherrer is one such house. JLS was a former classically trained ballet […]

Trump Meets with LVMH Chief Bernard Arnault

January 10, 2017

Fashion Twitter was in a froth yesterday as news rolled in of yet another of President Elect Trump’s huge overblown statements. “We are going to have an unbelievable , perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars.

Post Brexit Doom and The Dumbing Down of LFWM.

January 8, 2017

I didn’t attend LCM this season. Or should I say, I didn’t attend LFWM. And that’s part of the problem right there. Just as designers and brands have begun re-thinking their show strategy and the profusion of collections (which includes two RTW seasons, resort and either couture or bespoke for both mens and womenswear lines) […]

Belstaff & Liv Tyler’s AW’16 Capsule Collection

August 3, 2016

She may be better known for her acting roles and for her face and grace fronting the campaigns of Givenchy make-up and fragrance cruelly replaced by Amanda Seyfried in 2013. But Liv didn’t let that get her down. Instead, she’s worked closely with the brand that is the epitome of British biker chic, Belstaff, working […]

In The Name of Love – A Pride Weekend Special Blog

June 26, 2016

Way back in the mists of time, sometime in the mid-Nineties, someone coined the term “The Pink Pound” to describe the purchasing power of the UK’s gay community. As brands cynically tried to plunder this estimated £6bn market, we got wise – some wondered whether the tsunami of gay financial products, professional services firms, “gay […]

Wondering why everyone seems to be on their way to an Ashtanga Yoga-themed cocktail party these days?

Dior Resort ’17 – Meier & Ruffieux’s Statement Collection at Blenheim Palace

June 1, 2016

Design duo Lucie Meier and Serge Ruffieux at Dior seem to be doing a Vetements at Dior while hot-sitting at the helm. Which is to say, coming out with some new and much needed trend and proportion direction, as well as causing a degree of confusion. Layering it on, sometimes too much, gave the collection […]
