What to buy from Uniqlo U SS17



Uniqlo U SS17

Not long now til the second collection of Uniqlo U by artistic director Christophe Lemaire and team lands UK-side (It’s already out in the U.S). This is part of the LifeWear range that Uniqlo produces, which marries functionality with style and advanced high quality fabrics.

For me it’s the outerwear that sings out loudest here, including the voluminous parka and denim work wear jackets. Some pieces look like dupes from the first collection, such as the Oxford stand collar shirt and some of the knits (not that I’m complaining).

The dresses are also very strong and I love the look of these short sleeve cotton sweaters. There’s also a fab racer back swimsuit coming for the summer season.

AW17 Trend Report: Margaret Howell



Margaret Howell Aw17
There was a louche scruffiness to Margaret Howell for AW17 that I really liked. Trousers were boy-cut or cuffed with a button and worn a bit too short with retro normcore trainers. Shirts were half in, half out, but that’s as far as the scruffiness went. I mean, this is Margaret Howell, so they were still starched and properly pressed.

If you saw Prada menswear AW17, you’ll know corduroy is proposed as a big texture for AW17. It’s something we often see at Margaret Howell, in fact I’ve got some Margaret Howell cords from last autumn which are beautiful. Here they’re paired with a romantic blouse and lace-up ankle boots. And I liked the extra long webbing belts, which gave another ‘got dressed in a hurry’ casual edge to the offering.

A shirt made for you



bespoke shirts

I’m in the process of having some bespoke shirts made and the decision making is a minefield! A good one though. When you can have anything you want, the smallest detail counts. Shirt fabric – fine and silk-like or thick and starchy? Plain or striped? Monogrammed? (more…)



Calvin Klein AW17: God bless America



Calvin Klein AW17

First look at Raf Simons’ vision for Calvin Klein AW17. The first look that came out was perfection, a red-white-and-blue ensemble of red piped flat-front pants with blue tucked-in felted shirt and white poloneck, plus steel-capped cowboy boots. Very clean, direct and optimistic in its message. The show continued in a similar vein, an ode to American classics, including artisanal quilting inside parka jackets, Ralph-Lauren-meets-Helmut-Lang double-breasted camel coats, (more…)
