BRANDED_Apparel. The Name is Minimalist. It’s the message that Counts.

February 10, 2018

  It was an idea that was forged while Mark McCall (better known to his Instagram followers as @man_branded) was zipping around the UK in his main role as Head of Regional VM for a well-known high street fashion brand. “I’d love to do my own line of classic unisex tees that can go from […]

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 […]

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) […]

November 9, 2016

With the recent release of sales figures from retail giant Marks & Spencer that saw the biggest clothing & homes sales fall in 10 years, many have sought to say what’s wrong about the retailer and failed to focus on what’s right. Smaller stores, focussed streamlined collections and less confusion for the consumer as well […]

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.

June 1, 2016

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

Gucci Menswear Cruise 2017

May 22, 2016

I couldn’t let Alessandro Michele’s latest menswear outing pass without comment. Having been quite vocal about Gucci’s new direction, if you can call Michele’s particular brand of faux vintage “new”, I’ve had to eat my words. Not much, a bite-size portion of attrition. Apparently inspired by the English eccentricity, and Gucci’s forthcoming Cruise show in […]

March 24, 2016

Going out to events in East London is always a bit hit or miss. Sorry. It just is. So, when an unexpected invitation to tailor Gresham Blake’s book launch at his Shoreditch store and before setting off, we had those 50/50 ‘let’s go along and support the launch anyway’ thoughts.
