River Island Menswear Press Day AW09

By admin on May 1st, 2009

Knitwear and accessories are the shining stars of the River Island Menswear collection, they’ve got a great range of chunky cardigans, arran-style jumpers and we love the rocket cardie below!

We caught up with the RI team at the press day and couldn’t resist taking a photo of their outfits. We spoke to James Lawrence who does the bags for the brand, and he told us he was really excited about all the range, and the nylon shopper (last pic) was declared group fave.

Try this at home: Spray-painted Vans

By admin on November 6th, 2008

For his catwalk collection for Victorinox Pierre-Henri Mattout spent the morning spray-painting white Era Vans and they look HOT.
It’s not difficult to get the look, and it’s the perfect craft project for beginners. To try this out get your hands on some fabric spray paints and mask off the rubber sole with tape. You’re trying to get a shaded effect so try to spray from one angle and if you’ve chosen a couple of shades different colours spray each colour from separate angles. Make sure to spray very lightly and don’t be afraid to go over areas to get the desired effect.

New Bape store coming to London, did you know?

By Jonathan Smith on August 13th, 2008

bapestore.jpgI found out about this a few months ago from a PR, so naturally assumed everybody knew about it. I think I may have been wrong as I cant find any details about it on the information super highway, except for this post on nylonmag.com.

According to nylonmag.com the new store will be bigger and better than the current London store, taking inspiration from the Tokyo mega-store which along with a massive range of A Bathing Ape apparel has a cafe, art gallery and hair salon. The store is scheduled to open in 2009 so you’ll have to wait a while to get a purple camo burger, but it does sound really cool even if you’re not keen on the Ape.

I’ll keep you posted with any more information I can glean, perhaps from the horses mouth: get me a phone and the number of A Bathing Ape’s PR, I’m getting some answers!

French Connection army bag is perfect for festivals

By admin on July 25th, 2008

risptop army bag french connection mens.jpgFor those of you who haven’t yet got yourself a small everyday bag French Connection’s army bag is perfect. I the way ripstop looks techy and the dark duck egg blue colour contrasts nicely with the khaki suede bottom.

The bag is a great size for your daily essentials, and is quietly smart. It’s sturdy enough to pack all your festival kit and take a bit of battering. The price has been reduced from £30 to £14 which means if you do get it covered in mud it’s nothing to cry about.

Nylon February 2008-The Kills

By Will Reid on February 13th, 2008

If you read the titles of the latest Nylon cover; "London Calling," "Get inspired by the coolest city in the World!" and "Brilliant British Beauty from the Queen to Kate Moss," you would be forgiven for thinking this was just another ‘Cool Britannia’ issue where the rich and famous club kids, models and Skins extras give bullet-point answers to mediocre interviews and direct us on a wild goose chase that eventually leads to some dingy old club.
