Taking the scruffy look which Jarvis does so well and giving it a bit of spit and polish this gentleman carries off a timeless look with elegance.
The hunting green of the cape is echoed in the scarf and the navy trousers and brown shoes reinforce this further. The final touch is the way the silhouette of his outfit matches his companions perfectly, showing how to coordinate with your loved ones without looking like a dolt!

Brand hyping is usually dull PR fluff but at a Kickers presentation yesterday I learnt some Very Interesting Things I Didn’t Know Before. Here they are:

  • It was started in France in ’68 (which has special significance) by Daniel Raufast who wanted something for hippies to wear on their feet.
  • Famous Kickers wearers include David Bowie, Buzzcocks and Ian Brown. The shoes enjoyed a renaissance in the late ’80s on the casuals scene -which I’d put money on making a return very soon btw.
  • Jarvis Cocker wore Kickers so much the company made him a special pair which were dubbed ‘Cockers’.

The company installed a shed around UK festivals where you show off your moves and ended up in an amazing stop-frame vid made by Lovebite, aka Nottingham duo Nick Cobby and Allan Buxton, soundtracked by a nice little CSS remix of Chromeo‘s Fancy Footwork. Phew! If you’re not intrigued after that little intro then you’re dead, the video after the jump.

Patrick Wolf and Charlotte Church duet

By Isabelle on March 30th, 2007

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Patrick Wolf; as a 14-year old he started performing with cult band Minty starting a career in music that has seen him produce three albums, his latest release, ‘The Magic Position’ came out in February. Wolf’s a bit of an indie darling so I was really surprised to see him on the Charlotte Church show, and even more surprised when he performed a cover of Prince’s "When Doves Cry" with her. It’s by no means as good as the Beth Ditto and Jarvis Cocker duet at the NME awards a few months back, and it takes a while for Charlotte’s voice to warm up but it’s great.
