While potentially worrying and probably not at all a good sign, Andy Warhol’s ‘Death Scenes’ have always interested me. His principle was that by repeating the same image of a man impaled on a lamp-post (that’s just one of the prints,) death became strangely banal. This blazer might not be all blood ‘n’ guts (which with McQueen’s history is rather surprising,) but it is undeniably interesting. With city scenes and a fitted shape, this jacket could be worn at work, in the park, at a party and even to a music festival. I like that Matches put it with jeans for a modern edge and if I could afford the £258 price tag, I would go for a crisp white shirt and an Alber Elbaz-style floppy bow-tie. In faded, purple velvet. *Sigh*
Knife crime has reached an unbelievable height in Britain and with the murder of Ben Kinsella, the seventeenth teenager to die as a result of knife crime in London this year, Grazia has launched their ‘Lives for Knives’ campaign. As part of the campaign, the magazine has got Henry Holland, Katharine Hamnett and Sophia Kokosalaki on board to design t-shirts as well as laying a set of Five Government Demands.
On my WISHLIST is Henry Holland’s design, an electric-blue t-shirt with striking design and bold lettering.
Depending on your financial situation, you may be looking at the fact that sales are getting larger by the minute as a gift or a curse. The Matches sale is the largest yet, although I’m sure they’ll be a bigger one next week. To accommodate its size, I’ve decided to focus on a designer at a time – this post will focus on Phillip Lim.

There’s never been a better time to get
high end clothing. With all the high street stores being raided on the first
few days of their sales, high end stores don’t sell nearly as much. Around this
time, most stores are forced to sell their clothes at the price they got them
for. Which why Matches are selling this Marc
Jacobs cable knit cardigan for the relatively low price of £175.
