Raf Simons’ SS14 ad campaign has landed (and the first new season drop)



The Raf Simons SS14 campaign images are in! And although those boots are doing nothing for me, I absolutely love the half-half effect of the headshot and landscape graphics. The campaign was shot in Antwerp by Willy Vanderperre and styled by Olivier Rizzo…

Today’s the day – the Mr Porter sale is here!



Mr-Porter

The Mr Porter international sale went live today – at last! The US sale started a few days ago but I’ve had a look and there are still some crumbs left for the rest of us.

As usual, I’ve hunted out the pieces that I think work for both guys and girls, so here’s my edit of what we can steal. Personally, I’m all about the Raf Simons knit and the LVC pocket tee. A classic cotton pocket tee is stupidly hard to come by these days so I stockpile these when I see them…

Stefano-Tonchi

Oh my nosiness knows no bounds. I love Into The Gloss for its snoops into the bathroom cabinets of fashiony women and now it’s been sniffing around the men’s grooming shelves too. Here’s W magazine’s Stefano Tonchi’s thoughts on his grooming routine (Hmmm, Only 6 products but still)… (more…)



Buy it now: lo-fi luxe



Georgia-Jagger-Netaporter

This week’s issue of The Edit from Net-a-Porter is all about lo-fi luxe. I always find it hard to define what my ‘personal style’ is but lo-fi luxe is certainly a good way to describe part of it. I like things that are comfortable and casual but I also appreciate quality and beauty. (In System magazine, LVMH’s Yves Carcelle describes luxury as, “something you want to use two years later, ten years later, a generation later”.) (more…)
