Spencer Hart collaborate with Samsung

By Laura on January 1st, 2012

A few weeks ago we were invited to one of our favourite Savile Row tailors, Spencer Hart, to learn about their recent collaboration with Samsung.

The collaboration involves integrating mobile technology into the traditional craft of Savile Row design and lifestyle tailoring. To be perfectly honest I was a bit skeptical at first, but as soon as I saw how the tailors were able to use the Samsung Galaxy Note, all doubts disappeared.

The Samsung Galaxy Note features the S Pen – and advanced pen-input technology combined with a full touch 5.3” HD Super AMOLED screen for sketching, editing documents or annotating images. Spencer Hart founder Nick Hart is using this technology to complement the traditional tools of tailoring for measuring up clients and showcasing different fabrics, fits and designs.

We had a chance to speak to Nick Hart about the collaboration. He explained how it is changing the way they work stating: “In our world we spend time with our clients to make sure everything is perfect and there’s a huge amount of detail we need to record to create clothing that’s tailor-made to them. When you work with high profile people things need to be done quickly and you’ve got to be flexible – using this new technology will make us more efficient as a business and allow more time for creativity.

“And of course it’s not just for work. I travel a lot and I’m always looking for new ideas. The Galaxy Note means I can capture inspiration while on the move, through images, memos and sketches, and share them instantly with colleagues, suppliers and even clients!”

The Samsung Galaxy Note devices is now being used in store at the Spencer Hart flagship at 62/64 Brook Street, London.

Adidas Originals by Originals James Bond for David Beckham 2011 Fall/Winter

By Laura on October 16th, 2011

Adidas have rolled out the much anticipated third installment of the popular David Beckham / Design by J. Bond collection for Fall/Winter 2011.

The collaboration between sport and style icon David Beckham and Undefeated founder James Bond has been widely celebrated in the past, and will yet again see a contemporary range of footwear, outerwear, and accessories.

Much of the inspiration has clearly been pulled from collegiate imagery and has a very traditional American sportswear feel to it. This is something we have seen a lot of in the last two seasons. The varsity jacket in particular seems to be making a comeback. What do you make of this trend – will you be rocking the look this Fall/Winter?

The exhibition is joined by a small pop-up store, which includes a selection of products such as t-shirts, G-shock and BabyG Casio watches.

Supreme x Levi’s 2011 Fall/Winter Collection

By Laura on September 12th, 2011

Supreme is at it again this time partnering up with Levi’s on their new capsule collection for Fall/Winter 2011.

The collection features a number of standard staples from the American denim giant, including Levi’s 505 Zip-Fly Jean, a Chambray Work Shirt, a Trucker Jacket in leather and suede, a Denim Down Vest and Denim Bell Hat. Although I love the collection, I can’t help but feel that most of it does not look that different from the regular Levi’s collection. Hopefully prices will not be over inflated just because the pieces have a Supreme label slapped in them.

The collection is being assembled in the US and expected to hit stores Sept 15th, Japan on the 17th and the new London store on the 22nd.

Final Uniqlo +J collection Lookbook

By Laura on August 19th, 2011

A few weeks we announced that the upcoming fall/winter +J collection for Uniqlo would be the last. The lookbook is now out, and I have to say this is possibly the strongest collection yet.

There has undeniably been plenty of hype surrounding this final collection, but I can’t get enough of the contrasting colors, linear cuts and the mix of tech-infused materials with traditional fabrics.

Jil Sander’s was one of the first high-fashion designers to collaborate with a mass-market brand like this, and in many ways really set the benchmark for these types of collections. She has continually brought her own unique, dark and structural aesthetic to the Japanese retailer, and this collection is no exception.

One of the most interesting features of this collection is the mix of sportswear with highly tailored pieces. Although it might seem an unusual combination, it is a look that we are seeing quite a bit of at the moment, and something we expect to take off this winter.

The fianl J+ collection will be Available soon in Uniqlo stores the world over.

PUMA x Deadmau5 collection

By Laura on August 4th, 2011

This week Foot Locker launches the exclusive the PUMA x Deadmau5 collection.

Over the years Canadian electro DJ/producer Deadmau5 has rarely been seen rocking anything other than PUMA gear while performing, so it’s no surprise that the two have finally teamed up to create this capsule collection.

According to the PUMA, the collection was “Beat-inspired” and “designed to get you off your feet and dancing to the music. Electro coloured inspired combinations and detailing that include the iconic oversized mouse head, are just some of the features that make this collection all about personality, music and Summer fun.”

Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” collection

By Laura on May 17th, 2011

I love the fresh, day- faded pastels of Opening Ceremony x Warriors of Radness “Beach Crew!” Collection. However, that said I can’t help but feel these shorts will only work on super skinny model types. Unlike some, I have no issues with men wearing shorts… but it is all about the length, and well short shorts just aren’t a good look.

Check out the limited edition collection below, and available online here

G-shock West opens in London

By Laura on April 1st, 2011

Yesterday we went to check out the opening of the Casio G-Shock West store in the heart of Covent Garden.

When we walked in the front door we were greeted by a live street art installation – meant to serve as a dynamic celebration of the transience of the space and G-Shock’s passion for the spontaneous creativity of the underground art scene.

The new store stocks all the latest G-Shock, Baby-G and G-Shock Premium watches. As I mentioned in my article yesterday I have not really been following G-Shock, and honestly did not have huge expectations for the brand. However, any hesitations I once had were completely gone after checking out the new collection. It really feels as though they have given their classic watches new life through new colour ways and shapes.

A definite highlight of the collection was the limited edition collaboration with revered graffiti artist KRINK , the G-Shock DW-6900KR. This watch epitomises the resilience and toughness associated with graffiti culture and blends a classic G-Shock shape with the iconic silver colouring distinctive of KRINK’s style. The watch comes with a number of useful features including water resistance of up to 200 meters, world timer, full auto and flash alert lighting.

One of our team loved the G-Shock DW-6900KR so much, he went back this morning to pick one up

To celebrate the opening of the store, G-Shock will be offering 20% off your first purchase (until May 31st), so get down there soon to check it out.

Supreme teams up with Clarks on new desert boot

By Laura on March 31st, 2011

It seems like brand collaborations are all the rage at the moment, but I was especially excited when I heard that Supreme and Clarks had teamed up to bring us a new take on the classic desert boot.
Supreme has taken the hugely popular British classic, and redesigned the ankle area slightly, sloping the back and adding an extra lace attachment in the form of a hook eye.

The boots will be available in the standard black, gray and navy blue, but they have also made one the Supreme red that looks amazing. No news on the release date yet but we expect them to retail for about £165.00

Fluorescent Satchels by The Cambridge Satchel Company for Dover Street Market

By Laura on March 29th, 2011

We recently came across this exclusive collection of fluorescent satchels for Dover Street Market, by the quintessential British brand, the Cambridge Satchel Company.

Available in four colours (orange, green, pink and yellow), the distinct satchels feature a large main compartment with one front pocket and a double buckle closure. I am not 100% sure about the colours, but if you are a cyclist there is no way people won’t see you coming!

The satchels come in 13″ or 15″ sizes and are available on their website here.
