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 […]

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. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

March 11, 2016

A tale of two cities (brilliance abounds, but there were still some batshit-mental moments), we give you the rundown on our favourite collections, to save you believing some advertising-influenced baloney: LOVING Dries Van Noten – Possibly the most nuanced and on-point designer working in Paris today, Dries gave us a decadent, early-20th century inspired wardrobe, […]

A Very Mixed Bag at Gucci AW’16

February 24, 2016

I’m kinda’ seeing the relevance of see-it buy-it now shift to show culture when seated in a chill factor temperature and viewing the latest Gucci AW’16 collection as it livestreamed. Only Gucci and Kering’s CEO Francois-Henri Pinault is in favour of maintaining the status quo. See it, buy it in 6 months. Even if you […]

Ted’s Sports Togs Hit the Mark

February 2, 2016

Here’s a newsflash. I never thought I’d be the one at the gym scorning at the newbies for crashing my regular classes and cluttering up the machines. But I am. You can tell those new bright young things not so much by their eagerness but by their spanking new gym kits splashed with brand names. […]

Stella McCartney’s Pre Fall ‘16 Collection Shows in L.A.

January 13, 2016

Stella continues to be a celeb magnet. To be honest, I’ve always admired her low-key approach to her own fame and she has been charming and gracious each time I’ve met and interviewed her. The collections tend to influence the high street, though never in an obvious ‘my-God-we’re-going-to-see-that-everywhere’ way while they tend to divide opinion […]
