Benoit Missolin’s Glam Cocktail Hats for Autumn 2019

May 16, 2019

Ex student of the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture school, Benoit Missolin earned his brownie points at Christian Lacroix (gasp!), Thierry Mugler (double gasp!) and Givenchy. His wicked sense of millinery style is tongue-in-cheek, Roxy Music meets Dynasty glamour that has any fashion fan with a penchant for vintage meets statement dressing rolling on her […]

New Lifestyle Luxury Menswear Brand WallyDugCo Launches

February 1, 2019

Cody Wyant is an unusual and striking character. With his unmistakable Savile Row meets world luxury gentleman’s attire and his red, shortly trimmed beard, his bulk swathed in cashmere or paisley, throw in his Mid-West American twang and distinct gait and you have a character drawn from a hybrid of Truman Capote meets E.F Benson’s […]

Vintage Inspired RIXO Pops Up at Liberty London

April 27, 2018

Despite the array of high street fashion stores and mid-range designer labels, there’s so few that fit the lifestyle and expectations of a 40-50 year old woman with a career. Too faddy, too young, too samey…so it’s brilliant when a new name creeps up that offers beautiful, vintage inspired, quality pieces that are inter-seasonal as […]

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 […]

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 […]

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) […]
