WISHLIST: Alexander McQueen Photo-Print Blazer Down To £258 from £865!

By Will Reid on August 22nd, 2008

Thumbnail image for mcqueen.jpgWhile 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*

WISHLIST: Henry Holland ‘Lives not Knives’ T-shirt

By Will Reid on July 28th, 2008

livesnotknives.jpgKnife 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. One size fits all and all proceeds go to the Ben Kinsella Foundation, a charity set up for the prevention of future knife-crime. I couldn’t think of a more worthy summer buy.

T-shirt, Exclusively at Matches, £36

Matches Sale: Paul Smith

By admin on June 27th, 2008

paulsmith.jpgIn case you’ve been too lazy to scroll down the page, this is the second post of Matches sale items, this time focusing on Paul Smith.

Cobalt blue cardigan (£78): Cobalt blue is a great spring/summer colour and will make you stand out in a sea of grey cardigans.

Brown brogues (£165): Everyone needs a pair of brogues as they make any outfit much sharper. Round toe shoes are also a lot more grown up than the ‘I wish I played in the Horrors’ pointy toe look.

Brown leather bag (£188): I’m not even sure why I like this so much, but there’s something very charming about this bag.

3.1 Phillip Lim Cardigan

By admin on May 9th, 2008

lim cardi.jpgYou can’t guarantee much, but I can guarantee that cardigans aren’t at the top of your shopping list right now. Nevertheless, I think this 3.1 Phillip Lim cardigan will catch your eye even if you had no intentions of buying knitwear this season.

The design quirk in this piece is the white underlay and unique detailing. Although it’s subtle, it’s enough to separate you from the herd. Despite being knitwear, it’s surprisingly light and makes for a good piece to layer with. It’s available from Matches and costs £245.

Now’s the time to go high end clothes shopping

By admin on January 29th, 2008

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.

I know it’s still nearly £200 but it is a
Marc Jacobs piece. And it’s 100% virgin wool. Virgin wool is a misleading title
as most wool these days is technically of the virgin kind. I personally think
they just called it that to arouse men who are fans of cardigans and bestiality.
