Quote of the day: Kim Jones



Louis Vuitton X Supreme

“Youth is key now, especially in China. I was in Beijing a week ago. We had a launch of a store and from the time I went last time three years ago, the customer’s completely changed. They used to be old men, now it’s young twentysomethings, so it’s important to make them excited.”
Kim Jones, Louis Vuitton men’s artistic director on his Louis Vuitton X Supreme collab for AW17, WWD

The Louis Vuitton X Supreme line will go on sale at select Louis Vuitton stores on July 17.

What to steal from Prada menswear AW17…



Prada AW17 menswear

…The corduroy suits! The tactile shoes! THE SWEATERS! It’s all about quiet comfort at Prada, in which Miuccia pleads for a world of “reality, normality, simplicity“. In her usual way, this manifests itself in slightly seventies silhouettes without going for full-on pastiche. I love the warm spicy colour palette and the Memphis-meets-Missoni knits. Plus the art school jewellery – from shell necklaces to chunky crystal pendants. Watch everyone copy the crunchy sandals-n-socks-with-suit look…

Buy it now: Jo Malone London Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense



Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka cologne intense

Jo Malone London’s new Cologne Intense is an instant favourite. Myrrh and Tonka is just the tonic for the most depressing time of the year (this coming Monday is known as ‘Blue Monday’), it’s warm, cosy and comforting yet extremely sophisticated.

The first spray is quite full and sweet, then it settles into the sensual gourmand notes of the tonka bean. What is tonka bean? It’s the seed of the South American ‘Dipteryx odorata’ plant which gives off the familiar nutty, vanilla-like notes that are so prevalent in many cult perfumes such as Thierry Mugler’s Angel.

The press release also mentions top notes of lavender which to be honest I can’t detect at all (a shame as I love lavender). But I will say this is lighter than my other gourmand favourites, e.g. Dries van Noten by Frederic Malle and Pardon by Nasomotto. This does a similar job but is less heady so more suitable for everyday.

If you like combining Jo Malone fragrances, I’m told this is a great match with Basil & Neroli or Grapefruit.

Also noteworthy, Jo Malone London Myrrh & Tonka Cologne Intense comes in a smaller 50ml size (£74, HERE and HERE) as well as the usual 100ml (£105, HERE).

Good old Gosha Rubchinskiy. While the world freaks out about big bad Russians and scary old #manbabytinyhands, finally we have someone who only cares about youth and unity.

Gosha just showed his AW17 show in Kaliningrad, a tiny Russian coastal town between Poland and Lithuania. (more…)
