Just picked up the first issue of Archivist magazine. A beautifully produced ‘book-zine’, it features interviews with curators, designers and educators on their archives. This is so me! Continue reading
I’ve gotta say I loved Christophe Lemaire’s luxe sporty aesthetic at Lacoste so I’m glad the new look isn’t that far removed.

And of course I couldn’t resist the wee plastic Minnie Mouse-shaped box as a(nother) knick knack holder for my desk…
Living with a fellow of rather refined tastes means I get a lot of ‘why don’t you blog about this?’ emails. So I decided to ask D do write a guest post. After much scrolling through Mr Porter et al, he has picked his favourite menswear buys below, along with a line or two of commentary. Enjoy!
