Brandish favourites D.I.E have recently sneaked out their A/W08 collection. Expanding on the pop culture theme, they’ve now included Andy Warhol amongst the influences for their tees. T-shirts aside, they’ve included shawl collars on check jackets, colour blocked jumpers and geometric print cardigans. View more of the collection after the jump.

With the sun constantly teasing us in the UK, it’s about time we started looking at Autumn/Winter collections. First up will be APC, who have a distinctly winter-sailor feeling, continuing on from their SS collection. They also surprisingly make Ugg-like boots look wearable. Check after the jump for more looks and accessories.
Don’t you hate it when something doesn’t fit into your overall look but you still like it? That’s how I feel about these Alife Everybody Mid Lux Tweed trainers. Part of Alie’s A/W 08 collection, these are the kind of trainer that makes you want to buy a few matching pieces just to accommodate it.
Retailing at $152, they’ll only be available in upscale stores and boutiques. There’s no word on UK availability just yet but there’s still time for that to change.
Fans of Sonia Rykiel Homme will be sad to hear that after it’s SS 09 collection, it will be no more. The reason for this is, despite running for two decades, they’ve never actually made money on their collection.
Nathalie Rykiel, daughter of Sonia Rykiel and President of the Rykiel fashion house stated that “We are a family run business and we wish to remain so…thus the decision to focus on our core business which is women”.
In tribute, I leave you with this catwalk report and a picture of the most wearable men’s leopard print jacket ever.
Lately, it’s been easier than ever to recreate catwalk looks from vintage stores. Designers from Gareth Pugh to Henry Holland admit to garnering inspiration from the pieces available in vintage so why shouldn’t you? You won’t find a cardigan like this one in any high street store. Which, if you’re tired of disposable clothing, is a great thing.
While cardigans are disturbingly ubiquitous these days -with everyone from indie geeks to lager louts wearing them – this is something that will stand out from the crowd. It wouldn’t look out of place in Etro’s A/W 2008 collection and it’s only £45 (Although that’s still a little steep for something someone died in).
