Save the date: Uniqlo U SS21



Uniqlo U SS21

Loving the new Uniqlo U SS21 look book, which features the ‘walking in the city’ vibe now familiar from artistic director Christophe Lemaire and partner Sarah-Linh Tran’s shows.

The collection has all the pieces we expect from Uniqlo U – superior shirting, fine gauge knits, trench coats, plus some great looking denim. I’ve not really rated Uniqlo’s denim until now but these true blue washes and cuts look like they’re aiming to grab some Arket market share.

The collection launches on 28th January and there’s men’s and kids’ too.

See more here*.

Niche



Racquet Magazine

Just saw this on the Shreeji newsagents’ Instagram. Do I play tennis? No. Am I sporty? No. Am I seduced by this cover and the promise of ‘art, ideas, style and culture’? Hell yes!

Niche magazines are great for introducing you to another world and thus opening your mind to life beyond your echo chamber. The paper looks like it feels and smells amazing too.

Find Racquet magazine here.

Alan and Kenneth



Alan Bennett

While researching my media merch post, I landed on the London Review of Books Youtube channel and binged on Alan Bennett reading his famous diaries.

Absolute bliss.

His diaries from 2017 and 2018 are really interesting as he covers Trump, Brexit and other then-current affairs that are even currenter now. But interlaced with the political morsels are anecdotes about his plays, staycations and luvvie friendships. 2020’s written diaries are here, if you prefer the written word.

I know I must be one of the few who have never read or listened to Bennett’s diaries before, but they remind me of the equally excellent Kenneth Williams diaries* that are always worth dipping into…

Palate cleanser: part two



Joseph Tape New Cady trousers

Continuing my palate cleanse, I spotted these New Cady Tape trousers* (above) on the Joseph* website and remembered how obsessed I was with their Queen jeans a few year ago. Being 5’2″, I prefer my tailored trousers a bit cropped. I’m guessing these would need altering if they look like this on a tall model, but overall they’re a super useful shape. Annoying not to be able to try them on IRL though.

Joseph’s website is full of restful winter neutrals. These creamy colours may seem completely impractical, but I quite fancy myself as a modern day Slim Aarons heroine slurping après ski hot chocolate on imaginary winter slopes.

I also have my eye on this chunky merino diamond sweater* as I have some Christmas money to spend (and if there’s one thing you can rely of Joseph for it’s chunky jumpers).
