This is possibly my favourite coat from the AW14 collections. It’s men’s, it’s double-face cashmere, it’s Louis Vuitton and it’s way out of my budget.
It’s perfect though. I love this style of overcoat and the maroon stripes add a bit of old school military flavour (by way of Helmut Lang). I also like the styling with the wool and alpaca scarf layered underneath. (more…)
I don’t know why but I just don’t get Uniqlo. It’s a bit like M & S, everyone else raves about those fabulous finds but for me it’s Not Quite There. Yet even I have to hold my hand up and say its new T-shirt campaign rocks big time. UT is a new concept celebrating the T-shirt. Uniqlo has opened a concept store in Japan and enlisted a host of in-the-loop scenesters including Peter Saville, Gareth Pugh and Kim Jones to design a limited edition tee (yes, yawny idea but good choice of people). Not only that but king-of-cool Terry Richardson has been enlisted to shoot the tees which are modelled by the likes of Missy Rayder, Alison Mosshart and Terry himself. Now if that’s not fantastic marketing I don’t know what is.
