FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME – ‘FOOTBALL NOUVEAU’ By Nikelab x Olivier Rousteing

June 1, 2016

Wondering why everyone seems to be on their way to an Ashtanga Yoga-themed cocktail party these days? That’ll be the rising influence of ‘Athleisure’, a more casual extension of the Sports Luxe trend pushed by designers like Alexander Wang and Christopher Shannon. As aspirational as green juice and Pret protein pots, Athleisure can simply be […]

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 […]

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 […]

Gresham Blake’s Book Launch at his Shoreditch store

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. Welding me away from my […]

Barometer – Paris Fashion Week Special – AW16

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 […]

Lou Dalton A/W’16. Island Life

February 8, 2016

My friend Amy Liptrot is a supremely talented writer, having just had her first book published, ‘The Outrun’, a memoir of her time living on Orkney whilst overcoming addiction. So evocative is her writing, swimming in an inky ocean barely lit by daybreak, lambing season, the extremes of the landscape, that I’m finding it hard […]

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. […]

Matthew Miller A/W’16–Lost in Translation

February 2, 2016

We’ve followed Matthew Miller on KatieChutzpah.com since his early collections, from sparse, minimal sportswear (pre-empting the likes of Cottweiler) through engineered prints to the more mature, tailored stride that the Royal College of Art graduate has recently hit. Perhaps one of London’s most politicised designers, Miller thankfully eschews the polemics and manifestos of, say Vivienne […]
