I do love a good limited edition collection and I’m really loving streetwear brand Boxfresh’s new ‘25’ capsule in particular. The collection of twelve pieces feature the ‘QUARTER’ graphic on oversized longer length tees, footwear, jackets, shirts with extended tails and sweats using super heavy weight fabrics. I need that... Continue reading

The star studded launch of Diesel Black Gold's first global concept store in Mayfair’s Conduit Street during LCM was without doubt one of THE parties of the season. Celebs there included Sienna Miller, actor Luke Evans, the incredible and beautiful MKS - Mutya, Keisha + Siobahan, Dominic Jones – and... Continue reading

I know right. A blog post. From me. It’s been a while. But then you know, that’s the beauty of this blogging lark, you are your own editor and as such you can invent your own deadlines and ignore them whenever you like. Avid followers of any of my “soshul... Continue reading

Shoes. Just the word alone evokes emotions akin to euphoric happiness; and finding a good pair of shoes for me generates something closer to hysteria. You see really good shoes are hard to find, needing three magic ingredients too serendipitously come together in equal measures – style, comfort and that... Continue reading

Monday night of London Fashion Week played host to one of THE parties of the season - as The Serpentine Gallery and Diesel presented a line-up of live acts for the 2nd consecutive year of the Future Contemporaries Party.

“Beach Lava” is an awesome title for a fashion collaboration – simultaneously evoking images of chilled out bathing in the sunshine, boozy cocktails in the coconut palm hut and the sound of waves rippling against the sand, along with images of bright red volcanic explosions, molten orange rivers and intensely...

When it comes to summer eyewear, there’s something about those classic and timeless retro sunglasses of old that I’m always instantly drawn to. It’s a style that Scandinavian brand MONOKEL understand well, as their debut collection of hand crafted sunglasses looked to 60’s and 70’s music, youth culture and urban... Continue reading

The older i get, the more minimal the sartorial style I aspire towards gets. Although in reality i fail because a loud colour or garish print will always take hold of me - i now find extreme beauty in simplicity, structure and form like i didn't see before. It's this... Continue reading

“SMILE! What ever you do and what ever happens - just smile!” This was the cry heard back-stage at the Sibling SS14 show, just as the models lined up ready to go. And they had every reason to because this rockabilly West Side Story inspired collection of American high-school sports-luxe... Continue reading

There was something about those blockbuster 80’s sci-fi movies - Tron, Blade Runner, Aliens, Back to the Future, Weird Science, Terminator, Cocoon, ET, Transformers, Short Circuit, Robocop and of course (one of my favourite films of all time) Flight of the Navigator– that gave every kid of that generation a...

Joseph Turvey’s illustration based aesthetic has carved out a unique signature that is unmistakeably Joseph Turvey in just a few collections - quite the achievement for any new designer. Featuring beautiful florals mixed in with Saved By The Bell credits-esque block colours, the SS14 collection takes his sports-wear to a... Continue reading

Gender is not binary. It is not boy/girl. It's not yes/no. It's not on/off. And it can not be black/white. Because it is in fact grey. Gender is fluid. Gender is a maybe. It's the hermaphrodite. It's the circular peg in the square hold. With this in mind, Stella Tennant... Continue reading

Foucault, god bless him, suggested that sexual natures are not the expression of something biological or natural but are in fact down to discourses - prevailing cultural standards that frame the world at particular points in time. Foucault himself was an avid fetishist and fisting enthusiast, realizing that subversive sexual... Continue reading

There are lots of fantastic things in life that are sartorially monochromatic – The Care Bears, The Teletubbys and my personal favourites, The Power Rangers. In essence, monochromatic dressing is going head-to-toe in the same or indeed in different shades of one colour. But this is far from “matchy-matchy” dressing,... Continue reading

Did someone say a collection of men's footwear inspired by the aesthetics of dandy gentrified Congolese Sapeurs? And by the free-spirited urban energy of New York's stylish individuals? Because if so I'm listening... Well the answer is yes, yes they did - Jimmy Choo more specifically. For their SS14 collection,... Continue reading

Last week Superdrycelebrated their 10 year anniversary at one of London’s most famously iconic buildings – the Battersea Power Station. The shell of this incredible industrial space played host to what was a brilliant party - filled with cocktails, seemingly endless Prosecco and festival-esque street food vendors serving gigantic topping-laden...

The playsuit. The all in one. The jumpsuit. The fashion ‘onesie’. The boilersuit. The one piece. The adult baby-grow. Call it what you will but just be sure to add it to your lexicon in some way, shape or form soon - because for SS14, what ever you call it,... Continue reading

There’s something about the buzz of a fashion show backstage, minutes before the collection is about to be unveiled to the world, that is unlike anything else. I think it’s that sense of extreme creative urgency and necessary last minute perfecting of something that will define the future and soon... Continue reading

I had something of a fashion epiphany at the Basso & Brooke SS12 show year’s ago at London Fashion Week. That epiphany took physical form in prints. I realised that that’s what I was all about. Prints prints more prints and then even more prints and maybe some more prints... Continue reading

A can of soup that you walk past in a supermarket provokes little reaction in you, other than a desire to either buy some soup or not buy some soup. It is mostly a passive interaction, not only with that soup can, but also with that moment in time. You... Continue reading
