What to buy from Ines de la Fressange X Uniqlo SS16

Ines de la Fressange X Uniqlo

Ines de la Fressange continues to crank out accessible Parisian classics for Uniqlo. In the latest collection I’ve spotted a great grey sweatshirt*, the perfect indigo jeans*, a very nice blue Oxford shirt and countless iterations of slim-leg chinos. There’s also a long sleeve prairie dress that I can’t image Ines (or me) wearing but it’s super-cool nevertheless.

If you want easy basics under £50 and have similarly Ines-like proportions (all the cuts do seem very slim and the trousers tend to be quite low waisted), then have a nose below…

So Grindr is live streaming the J.W. Anderson AW16 menswear show this morning, which isn’t as weird as it sounds. According to the New York Times, Grindr is pivoting to embrace fashion, music and entertainment, not just gay guys looking for a hook-up. In short, Grindr is doing a Snapchat. Sounds like a sensible move. Read more here(more…)
