Vans AV Los Muertiz

Other than water-orientated clothing, what really floats my boat (geddit) is any garment that has skulls printed on it. Actually, scrap the printed part. If some far-out designer decided to rob a couple of graves and glue a bunch of skulls to a duffel coat, I’d totally buy it. But until then, I guess I’ll just have to make do …

Fly 53 hooded jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Love this old-school style hooded jacket from Fly 53. A completely home-grown brand, Fly 53 has been on the scene for the past ten years or so, collaborating with and producing clothes for bands and musicians including Hot Chip and Super Furry Animals. The jacket, a very reasonable £50, is just part of innovative and extremely wearable clothing range from …

Mollusc t-shirt from Little Paper Planes makes my day

admin Clothing 1 Comment

My little day is always made when a brand-spanking new tee with a nautical theme drifts its way into my insignificant life. I get even more excited when it comes courtesy of Little Paper Planes, a great website featuring a collection of artists submitting their own clothing designs. Rainbow Nautilus (£10) is Apenest’s latest design, featuring a rather psychedelic print …

Isabelle Clothing Leave a Comment

ASOS have got a fancy new website and a lots of great clothes for this season. One of my picks is their reversible nylon hoodie (£40), on one side there is a neat grey and white abstract print, and the other side is an eye-popping bright cobalt blue. Perfect for those times when you’re not sure if you’re feeling sartorially …

Newly released t-shirts from ISO50

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

I love the simple, stark imagery of this Worker tee (£12) from ISO50, which recalls the art of Communist propaganda posters, the design sugesting the hammer and sickle motif that was one of the defining images of Soviet rule. The Worker tee is part of fifteen new releases from ISO which also includes The Science of Patterns tee (also £12). …

Junk De Lux cardigan

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Reasons to love winter #23: Cardigans. As you may or may not know, I am a complete button-up-knitwear fiend. And I’m not particularly discerning either – it could have George Michael’s image embroidered into the back and I’d still wear it. Despite my predilection for all cardigans, I can still recognise one that remains well within the realms of good …

Topman polo shirt

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

I love this fantastic new polo shirt from Topman, which has a distinctly old-school flavour. It’s like something I would have worn as a kid in the 1980s. The attraction is obviously all in the detail – the red piping lining the collar, pockets and shoulders – otherwise is would just be another dull, grey polo. Combine with a pair …

Martin Margiela ‘Speed Racer’ style quilted jacket

Isabelle Clothing, Designer Spotlight Leave a Comment

Jackets are big news, they’re right on the money for utilitarian chic. Martin Margiela’s padded and quilted jacket is definitely utilitarian but also has a ‘Speed Racer’ type vibe. Wear the jacket with military shades for an ‘enforcement’ vibe or for a more ’80s feel team it with brightly coloured accessories. Either way it’s pretty dear at  £340 but the …

Bless hooded jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

This is the type of jacket we’ll all be wearing in the future. Even though it has minimal detail, the thick cut material and hood give it a bad attitude that’ll be in harmony with the streets of a world verging on an apocalypse. Or you can just look great in it rocking into a pub. I do hope things …

Billabong Justice hoody with huge tartan print… like looking for trees and only seeing leaves

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

With a tartan print so huge, you can’t even see it properly, looking at the detail on this Billabong Justice Hoody (£25) is like checking it out through a microscope… or something. Made from soft cotton and great for the coming autumn, this slim fit hoody would look great with a primary colour check shirt underneath and a pair of …

Aqauscutum winter jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

After revealing the sublime Commes De Garcon jacket and declaring it "the only jacket you’ll ever need", I’ve since discovered this gorgeous double-breasted coat from Aquascutum that easily gives the CDG jacket a run for its money. With a much more tailored fit, this is definitely the smarter of the two, and really should only be worn with a sharp …

Topman bomber jacket

admin Clothing Leave a Comment

Great for the transition from summer to autumn, Topman’s nylon bomber (£40) will keep the chill off of you as the nights draw in and the winds pick up. Actually, I could have done with one of these a couple of weeks ago. It really seems to me that we had spring this year, then skipped straight on toward winter. …
