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 …
As if creating an amazing magazine wasn’t enough, the talented team behind Dutch-based Fantastic Man have teamed up with Swedish scent makers Byredo to release their own self-named cologne.
Chloe Sevigny’s unisex collection for Opening Ceremony debuted this Sunday, to coincide with London Fashion Week.
“There’s much less pressure doing men’s, and because this collection is unisex and oversized, I felt like I could have more fun,” Sevigny said. “Except for the trousers — getting the fit right was really difficult.”
The actress named fashion designer Miguel Adrover as one of her influences, along with gay lumberjacks, preppy New England and English punk. Sevigny is known for her offbeat fashion sense, adding: “I love pouring my creative energy into fashion during my downtime.”

Jordan Askill, a designer whose work for Dior Homme and Ksubi has cemented him as a name to keep an eye on, has launched a jewellery collection at Dover Street Market (DSM.) Dover Street Market is a fashion emporium founded by Rei Kawakubo and her husband and it has become known for its artistic installations, exclusive lines and designer collaborations. In previous years, we’ve seen a hotel room designed by Alber Elbaz of Lanvin and a Tiki-hut check-out.

David Saunders brings you the AW 08 collection for his label David David. The collection is high end yet accessible with some pieces drawing inspiration from contemporary sportswear while others having a more formal twist. All in all a well rounded collection of both mens and womenswear with a broad range of textiles from wool to satin creating items that would slot into anyone’s wardrobe with ease.
Cotton bags are ubiquitous, every man and his dog now has a promotional tote with the most obscure logo and dubious green credentials.
Whenever you usually see a bag collection there’s a standout bag and some duds. That isn’t the case with this Yoshida and Mug collaboration. All of the colours are wearable and I’d even consider getting the tote version – although they’re still attached to femininity in my mind.
The dust has barely settled at Chanel’s five floor residence of Dover Street Market and we’ve got wind of another designer houseguest at DSM.
If you wake up feeling like you need a kickstart to the day then CDG’s Energy C Parfum might be the answer.
Everyone is cracking out the summer wear but now the sun has come out I keep seeing one of my pet hates, beachwear as officewear. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for keeping cool but I don’t know why that equates with late ’90s surfbum look.
No word from Grizzly Bear about the provenance of that madras shirt but I’m not giving up on checks yet.
