The NME Awards last night was a pretty stylish affair, most of the music crowd were dressed smartly although no one went for broke like the Arctic Monkeys at the Brits.
New York label Loden Dager are the latest in an
increasing line of designers to team up with Uniqlo,
creating a Spring/Summer mini collection. The collection is strong, with the
check shirt being the only really ugly piece on it. Some might say it’s a bit
dull but it’s a collection designed for high street consumption, so that
criticism is like complaining that you can’t wear Gareth Pugh’s collection to Tesco.
A few weeks ago, I posted on the first pics from Ewan McGregor’s campaign for Davidoff’s ‘Adventure’ fragrance.

collaboration that reader Jerome posted the other day, Puma have gone even
crazier with these Puma
First Rounds. Continuing their collaboration with the Yo! MTV Raps series,

This is becoming absurd, not to mention extremely frustrating to read about. Vogue.co.uk reports that MAN designer James Long has had his autumn/winter 2008-9 collection stolen. The young designer suffered at the hands of thieves a mere hours after his show took place last Friday. We reviewed the MAN show earlier in the week.
Unconditional is without doubt my favourite collection which shows at London Fashion Week. Autumn Winter 08 is a real return to form for the label with some fresh new looks. Last season’s show was nice, but was a bit of a safe collection for them, delivering more of the same fine gauge knits, draped and gathered garments and chest-baring T-shirts …
Deryck Walker started his career with Boudicca, before working with Robert Carey Williams. His clothes are sold in Dover Street Market and his side projects include art installations in some of the edgiest galleries. But despite this résumé, his latest collection is surprisingly conservative
Canadian export to London, Todd Lynn showed his latest collection for men and women this week in London. He continued to cement his reputation as the king of rock n’ roll, with this edgy dark collection, which will appeal to his fans who include U2, Marilyn Manson and The Rolling Stones.
