F&F AW15 Menswear Show

F&F showed a preview of their AW15 collection at the plush Savoy hotel in London.
Menswear returns to retro spanning late 60s to the early 70s.

Fabrics and details are nostalgic with leather biker jackets embossed with a vintage polish.

 Knit jumpers in burnt amber and orange hues add warmth to charcoal tailoring.
Subtle jacquard stripes decorate the sleekest of grey wool suits.

There is both rustic and contemporary revival as oversized scarves bring a frayed edge to clean cut trench coats and smart wool trousers.



Maintaining a slim and sharp silhouette, blazers are reinvigorated with tweed like textures.


Occasionwear sees black dinner jackets in soft velvet worn with jersey t-shirts splashed with artisan prints.

Opening the show was Paloma Faith:

Volcom Featured Artist Series presents Dan Eldon - The Journey is the Destination‏

The Volcom featured artist series began humbly, providing a canvas for Volcom riders, creative friends and young visionaries to express themselves.

Over the last 19 years it has grown into the catalyst for dynamic and exciting large-scale projects like comic books, art shows, animations, music collaborations, zines, internet shows and accessories.

The Dan Eldon Collection
 At the age of seven, Dan Eldon moved from London to Nairobi, Kenya which ignited a lifelong fascination with the land and the people of Africa. As a teenager, Dan combined his passion for art, adventure and activism into a personal philosophy that he called, “Safari as a Way of Life”.


 On July 12 1993, Dan, one of the youngest Reuters photojournalists ever, along with three colleagues, was stoned and beaten whilstcovering the tragic conflict in Mogadishu, Somalia. At only 22 years old, Dan Eldon’s safari came to a sudden end. However, he has left behind seventeen black-bound journals filled with drawings, writings and photographs. Through his art, his journey continues.

 This season Volcom celebrate Dan Eldon’s sense of adventure and creative activism, in the latest Featured Artist Series tee collection, providing the journey truly is the destination.

Taking SS15's MIG Fighter Suit pieces as an example, the film highlights the remarkable
