Here are just 5 of our favourite short...

Oliver Spencer AW16 - Music To Our Ears

Posted by 2

The Inspiration: Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely places. The Oliver Spencer AW16 collection found it in the form of Ginger Baker. Ginger Baker was the drummer and one of  the founding members the band Cream. Having been known primarily for his role in music, Ginger Baker was a man of great sartorial pedigree. Baker often led the way for British counter-culture fashion. While America had Easy Rider & Woodstock we had the likes of Baker. The Oliver Spencer AW16 collection is inspired in particular by Baker's trip to Africa. Ginger Baker's trip led him to work with the...

Le Swine | Shoreditch Guide

Posted by 2

When we first heard of Le Swine and their self-professed "best bacon butty in town" we feared the boldness of their statement. Would this be another claim too large for any one street food van? A good amount of bacon sandwiches later and you've probably worked out our thoughts on the whole situation. It turns out the bacon butty is in good hands. James, the man behind Londons best bacon butty knows a thing or two about food. He worked under Bruno Loubet (chef extraordinaire) in Clerkenwell for five years. It's fair to say he has earnt his stripes. Though...

That is not to mention some of the stripe wearing icons of days gone by, greats like James Dean, Pablo Picasso and of course Dennis the Menace. In celebration of all things stripy we've done a round up of some our season favourites. Without further a do here...

SEVERAL; SS17 at London Collections

Posted by 2

The Several SS17 show at London Collection Mens was another nod to times gone by. Set in a yellow and white cafe, the show offered a retro palette even Wes Anderson would envy. The brands attention to detail did not fall short at the clothing. Vintage magazines and papers alongside toast on the table all served as parts of the Several time machine. Furthermore the clothing featured was just as much a tip of the hat to Britain of post war times. Utilitarian work wear teamed with the aspirational trench coat & sunglasses blended industrial styles of the early 20th...
