INTERVIEW: GRENSON

INTERVIEW: GRENSON

You rarely get to meet the people behind a brand. At most you might furtively glimpse them, yet never really engage with them. My encounter with the Grenson team, however, was everything but that. Every single person I met from the design team, from PR to commercial, was incredibly fun and delightful. I could see...

NOW: JOSEPH FW14

If you don’t know UK based fashion store Joseph, which has shops around the world, then I won’t blame you. Things have been pretty quiet the last few years, especially outside the UK where its core business is.

SHOPPING: GRAPHIC SWEATSHIRTS

Now that we are layering up, let’s do it with style and keep things fun. I always loved graphic sweatshirts especially abstract or coated ones so I found six cool pieces on my eshop (and powered by the UK based retailer Matches Fashion). Obviously, I couldn’t help but celebrate McQueen with three pieces (first, fourth and last) and their quirky...

I’m always amazed to see how Dr Martens successfully delivers each season so many exciting new styles while respecting its history. The new Fall Winter is a continuation of the last Spring Summer series dedicated to the core values (i.e. punk and British heritage). This season mixes archive inspired pieces like the Grasp boots and shoes, ultimate...

Ten pieces, some flirting with the latest trends, like...

My tartan won’t die anytime soon!! Following my post on Fred Perry’s tartan collection, I couldn’t help but feature Herschel Buffalo’s plaid and their super cute backpacks available in different formats (Heritage, Nelson, Pop Quiz, Packable daypack, Little America and of course duffles).

NOW: MARTINE ROSE FW14

We will always question our heritage and our past, flirting, celebrating and sometimes falling for them. The fashion world has excelled – maybe too well – at this game, using references in order to feed its insatiable need for novelty. Obviously, some are better than the others in capturing the essence of the past to...

SHOPPING: FRED PERRY TARTAN COLLECTION

I couldn’t be happier with these new tartan pieces from Fred Perry Men’s Authentic collection! Besides being an irresistible British symbol, the tartan has also this inevitable subculture element that – obviously – is well suited to Fred Perry’s rebel heritable. For the occasion, their design team created their own pattern, taking inspiration from Perry’s...
