Just Sayin'

Rachel Zoe's assistant Brad Goreski has broken away & will soon have his own t.v show.
If he wants to be taken seriously as a stylist we would suggest he doesn't.

We stayed so long at the Modus one talking to Adam & Katherine that everyone started to pack up around us. We saw a lot of lovely things. First & foremost this mannequins cute butt.

Oscar Looks So Cute In Ellesse

Oscar is from Elite London & was a cheeky little sod on the last shoot we did. We love him.

Levi's Campaign SS11

Featuring the delectable Cole Mohr from D1 Models. Grungy.

Top Of The Class

These fantastically fluoro satchels from The Cambridge Satchel Company have just gone on sale at Dover Street Market.
Would totally pep up your school look.
think blazer, shirt, tie, shorts & knee high socks, patent brogues all in monochrome & then this bag in pink. You'd have the makings of Head Boy.
From £110

Jock of The Walk

Underwear brand Jockey celebrated their 135th anniversary this week by raiding through the archives & putting on a catwalk show for us lucky press. From classic all in ones of yesteryear (that is of course the official word) through to underwear specially designed for NASA up to the more fashion conscious pieces of today. Standing ovations all round.

Tommy by Tommy Hillfiger

We like to keep up with what our boy River is doing. Here he is reading on the sun lounger. Much like we will be doing come Sunday. He and his mates are showing us the new ss11 Tommy collection. Nice and...


Road Trip!

Tomorrow we head off on safari. Expectations are high. We'll let you know. At least we have our model to keep us entertained if no giraffe sighting.

Our New style Crush

Maybe we're slow off the mark. Maybe you are. You'll see why shortly.

On set in Cape Town.

Girls Just Wanna Have Vodka Fun

We love ourselves a vodka fuelled cocktail after a hard day helping guys into trunks.

Look What We Found At Our Location House!!!!

A towel emblazened for Frank's South African namesake. He's never washed his hands in so much style. Sit on that Tom Ford!

Fred Perry X Cycle T Range Hits Stores

Fred Perry are celebrating the link between sport and the mod sub culture. What this means to you is that from Thursday you can head to for their super cool new range of cycle inspired polos, with zip rear pockets. We're loving this 'Champion Striped' number.

Wine Time!

After a long couple of hours of casting the hottest boys in town... "Can I just check that chest one more time" Its definitely Cape Town Cocktail O'Clock!

Aussiebum Go LogoLess! (nearly)

Its a new direction for Aussiebum! Their new MAN range... minimal logo. We LOVE!

Cape Town!

Elauan and Chris tell it how it is.

Looks Like We've Made It!

We've flown away on a shooting jaunt to prepare your spring summer pages. About to start casting by the pool for our swimwear story. We're at the Glen Boutique Hotel. On go the swim trunks!

Stussy 4 Fred Perry

Loving the collaboration from Fred Perry & Stussy. Available from Laurel stores on the 18th February. A simple colour palette of white, red, black in sporty mesh fabrics with a definite 70s jock feel to it. They've also done bags which are extremely covetable.
Nick Bower, creative Director at Stussy says 'The Stussy Deluxe X Fred Perry collaboration combines American cultural references with 'London style' of an iconic brand'
& we tend to agree.


We love ourselves a bit of Bradley Cooper & he looks especially dashing here in this leather jacket from Diesel, who FYI dressed him for the majority of the film. Excellent work!

New From Sunspel

Love the dreamy appeal of the new range from Sunspel.

Press Breakfast!

This morning we were at Cos on Regent Street to toast the success of the Clifton Nurseries pop-up within the brands flagship store. Selling potted plants & flowers, shoppers were able to pick up a plant while browsing for beautiful basics.
Pictured here is the very dashing Nick from Karla Otto who fed us croissants before we hot-footed it back to the office where chaos resumed once more.

All Kinds of Amazing

We're so busy putting together our forthcoming Naked Issue. Quite what the Style Team are doing when its naked, might confuse you, but its a whole lotta work we can assure you. Heres a video to entertain, that is so fun laden, that it might possibly blow your mind. We are questioning everything off the back of it. Disclaimer: To be heavily referenced soon.

A Talk With Andre & Manolo

A few days ago we received an email an email requesting us to attend a Liberatum talk by Manolo Blahnik (highly regarded shoe designer) & Andre Leon Talley
(Editor at Large at US Vogue & star of The September Issue) at Spice Market in W London.
We arrived at the W hotel, had a glass of champagne thrust upon us & were promtly ushered into a tiny screening room which was shock nuber two frankly as we had expected a massive auditorium filled to capacity with mad fashion fans & bloggers.
The number was closer to 50, some of which included Vivienne Westwood with her husband Andreas, Hilary Alexander, Stephen Jones & Jade Parfitt.
The pair talked mostly about films; regaling their favourite movies from the 40s, through to 50s & 60s & bemoaning the lack of glamour in modern day silver screen. Though Andre raved about The Kings Speech & then went on to say how much Americans loved Downton Abbey before doing some on point Maggie Smith impressions. The highlight of the talk bar none.
We could go on.

Trainer Team Up

The latest in a long line of collaborations with Converse sees the high priests of trainers team up with designer Marimekko (who we're inclined to describe as a graphic Scandinavian Orla Keily)
Available from Offspring next month from £50

Brazilian Boy

Joao Araujo takes some snaps here of Lucas Mendez, from Brazil, a newly signed up face of Andy Models.

Chino Time

We love a classic chino, they're all we wear these days with our new fluoro trainers heading into spring. Asos do us proud with a great selection in their new collection.

We Love Charlie and....

YSL Manifesto SS2011

Every season the good people at YSL dish out their manifesto (in a lovely canvas shopper) on the streets of the World's fashion capitals. Which usually involves us running around Bond Street desperately looking for the vendor (resembling an Evening Standard seller, only infinitely chicer) only to give up after 5 minutes then spend the rest of the day seeing smug fashion types parading round town with their monogrammed totes. Anyway rant over, here's a scan of one of the fabled pages. Glamourous non?

Y-3 in W1

As if Conduit Street wasn't our favourite of all the streets, with Vivienne Westwood, Sketch, Belstaff & best of all, a Pret with a mezzanine!
It can now add Y-3 to it's role call. The store opened
in spectacular fashion last night with guest of honour, Yohji Yammamoto
(whose V&A retrospective opens very shortly) in attendance.
The after party at Paramount drew in the likes of Henry Holland, Nick Grimshaw
& Jamela Jamil (basically anyone whose ever been on T4)
We heard mini burgers were served which is always the mark of a good party.

H&M Fashion Against Aids

H&M's 4th year supporting Designers Against Aids with a specially conceived collection goes on sale on the 26th April. This year the emphasis is on unisex clothing; parkas, tees & shirts in sporty styles can be worn by ladies & gents, we took particular fancy to this logo adorned tracksuit. For fans of garish dressing only. Available at Divided sections in selected stores with 25% of profits going towards good causes.

Baptiste At Chanel

Picture the scene: It's the apocalypse. The world is a dark, smoking wasteland.
& the only other survivor is Baptiste Giabiconi...
It might make a life without Starbucks worth living.

Last Night

Topman CTRL came to London last night, If you look closely you'll see Annie Mac presenting.
It's showing tomorrow so do look out for us.

The M+P Boys In Swimwear!

A quick snapshot as they queue up for the Raging Rapids Waterslide at Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark.

Lee SS Ad Campaign

We love the new ad campaign for Lee shot by Terry Richardson.
The brands tagline is 'A Lee Don't Lie' meaning you get a good quality garment for your hard earned cash & it won't fall apart after a couple of wears which is all anyone really wants from a garment. & to look stylish we guess.
We also like the line 'A Lee Is Washed With Your Sweat'

Kate Moss watch

Apparently Kate Moss has just walked down the catwalk at Louis Vuitton in Paris smoking a cigarette. Thank you Twitter once again.
(follow us!)

Tuesday, 8 March 2011


These gorgeous Comme Des Garcons wallets are a snip at £55 from Mr Porter & would certainly add some order to the otherwise unorganised contents of your bag.
For a jazzier choice in colours try My-wardrobe for acid brights.

More River Time


Campaign SS: Ben Sherman

We like Ben Sherman's newest campaign, taking the brand back to basics & focusing on it's core products, specifically this season; the humble shirt. Laundered cottons, chambrays & gingham feature heavily rubbing alongside their smarter tailored shirts in a multitude of shades & colours.

Asos Black is Back

The second drop of Asos Black has just launched for all fans of sharp tailoring with a rock n roll aesthetic. Perfect for mixing with your All Saints & your Triple A at Topman.

Rafeal Nadal: The New Face (& Body) of Armani Underwear

The successor to Cristiano Ronaldo & David Beckham.
Armani have chosen another sexy sports star for their 2011 campaign.
A lesser publication would probably make some joke about the tennis stars ball control.
We shall refrain.

There's a video too! Hot.

Behind The Scenes at Our Cover Shoot

Kelvin was very nice. the trampolines were distracting.
