Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood AW16

Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne westwood aw16 by Kevin Tachman

The above jacket was my favourite from the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood AW16 show. It’s an amalgamation of a few ideas, fusing Kronthaler’s Austrian ancestry with British tailoring and a gender-neutral sensibility. The embellishment on the jacket on the left is from antler horns upcycled from antique hunting trophies and was triggered by Kronthaler’s trip back to his Tyrolean homeland at Christmas. (more…)

1. MOSCHINO SAYS ‘FANCY A FAG?’


Way ahead of the see-now-buy-now curve, Moschino has a knack of knowing which elements of its buzzworthy collections to release first. Landing today, its #Itslit AW16 capsule collection of cigarette-themed pieces hits the shop floor just four days after first being seen on the runway. I can’t lie, I think this ciggie-box shaped shoulder bag is utterly fabulous… (Buy it at Luisaviaroma and Selfridges or click the images above to shop.) (more…)

LFW highlights: Margaret Howell AW16

1 Margaret Howell aw 2016

What’s new at Margaret Howell for AW16? Lots actually. Shirt collars are super-pointy, winter shorts are a thing, there’s a crepe-soled brogue, and orange is the colour – in raffish crumpled silk. I also love the floppy neck bows and the ankle-grazing trouser length. Can I add that I have one of those slim black leather belts and I wear it with everything. If you buy nothing else, buy a Margaret Howell belt! (more…)
