Burberry Menswear AW16–Thoroughly Modern

January 30, 2016

You can always judge a man by his shoes, and Christopher Bailey’s Burberry men are all wearing suede penny loafers and trainers this Autumn.

Everybody’s Changing

November 16, 2015

Maybe it’s the fact that menswear is traditionally seen as the least exciting branch of fashion, or maybe we were so caught up in the revolving doors at large houses in the last few months, including Raf Simons walking out on Dior, or Alber Elbaz’s dramatic exit from Lanvin and the subsequent downing tools of […]

The Name’s Ford…Tom Ford

October 28, 2015

It’s time to talk about Tom Ford again. We seem to spend a lot of time discussing Tom Ford over at Chutzpah Mansions but, let’s face it, it’s his world now and we’re just living in it. Not content with completely owning London Fashion Week last February by showing in Los Angeles the very same […]

Music Is The Answer–Burberry and Apple Music

September 17, 2015

British music is as intrinsic to the Burberry brand as the trench coat and house check, so it’s really no surprise that the digital innovator is the first luxury fashion firm to team up with online streaming service Apple Music – especially as its parent company has nabbed three of Burberry’s top executives over the […]

Perfect Timing – Some thoughts on the Hermés x Apple Watch

September 10, 2015

Right about now financial analysts, fanboys and fashion victims will be scrutinising Apple’s latest press conference, the usual Silicon-Valley-meets-Nuremberg-Rally Sturm und Drang. Sifting through the usual technological detritus (another iPad, ANOTHER iPhone model, this time featuring a “Selfie” button to save your poor, overused thumbs from an RSI, a kerching iPencil cross-selling opportunity), the real […]

Check Mate–The Burberry Scarf Bar

September 9, 2015

There are very few accessories that can truly be described as seminal; the quilted Chanel handbag with its chain strap; the Birkin; Elsa Peretti’s jewellery designs for Tiffany.

10th Anniversary Scottish Fashion Awards 2015

September 8, 2015

It seemed that every important Scot in fashion was in attendance. Whether exiled in London (or, in my case, North of the Border), the fash industry Scots gathered in London’s Corinthia Hotel for a swish awards ceremony that celebrated the phenomenal influence of Scots in the British Fashion Industry. Prosecco, whisky and martinis flowed as […]

Gieves Spring/Summer 2016. Our Man in Havana

September 2, 2015

There are many celebrated streets in our capital, but none epitomises the word “heritage” more than Savile Row. Every gentleman has a tailor, and every tailor has a story to tell. Gieves’ story dates back to the late 18th century, supplying custom-made uniforms to British naval officers and, from there, dressing three generations of our […]

Austerity Measures–Matthew Miller Spring/Summer 2016

August 5, 2015

Out of all the designers showing at London Collections: Men, Matthew Miller is possibly the most exciting conceptually and politically. The Royal College of Art alumni’s collections often serve as commentary on his and his generation’s resentments with a political system which neither seems to acknowledge or care about the financial, ecological, and legislative legacy […]

Generation X – Saint Laurent Spring/Summer 2016

July 1, 2015

Marc Jacobs may have been fired from Perry Ellis for his now-infamous Grunge collection, but who knew that it would be so influential over two decades later?
