Faustine Steinmetz SS18 Dedicated Male Looks at London Fashion Week

SS18 introduces Faustine Steinmetz’s dedicated male looks which is new to the brand with her collection usually being unisex.

 The London based brand specialise in re-producing everyday pieces with unique and artisanal techniques but most importantly sustainable fabrics.

 This new collection is set to revisit the usual classics in an unseen way. The concept of this collection is to replicate exact archetypes of clothing that everyone has or has had in their wardrobe such as an old pair of jeans or even a tracksuit.

 Pieces which are available anywhere in the world in profusion. Faustine has reviewed these by making them from scratch, and by creating extra-ordinary fabrics with forgotten artisanal methods.

 It’s all about a different perspective and approach and providing each basic with a different life and story. The designer, famed for her trompe l’oeil felted “denims” and singular deconstructivist spirit, as always puts sustainability at the centre of this collection.

Amesh Debuts with a Gender Neutral Collection at London Fashion Week SS18

Amesh Wijesekera showcased his debut collection at London Fashion Week SS18 in collaboration with SRI, a luxury sustainable lifestyle label launching in February 2018.

In Sanskrit, ‘SRI’ means resplendent, a name which encapsulates the unique beauty of the design but also the pride and wonder of a nation looking to its future.

 SRI is an inspiring bridge between two worlds. This trans-seasonalbrand (gender neutral) is a unique and creative meeting of the millennia-old wisdom of South Asia and the progressive, technologically advanced demands of global high fashion.

 Low-tech meets high-tech in a progressive new addition to the luxury design market.

 An alumnus of the AOD Colombo in Sri Lanka, Amesh captures the essence of his home country; celebrated by the sophisticated traveller as a tropical paradise, the island is filled with pristine white-sand beaches, lush tropical forests and breathtaking mountains.

The debut collection for SRI perfectly depicts the cultural inspiration of Early Ceylon; the history, lifestyle and fashions whilst Amesh creates a modern and contemporary range appealing to a cultured, carefree, adventurous consumer.

 SRI is unique and Amesh has worked closely with design leaders in his native homeland; the range is a mixture of local craft blended with modern techniques; dip dyeing and screen prints are expertly blended with hand woven silks.

 Working with local weaving villages, local craftspeople have highlighted their expertise through their intricate handcrafted overshots, twills, ombre and herring bone effects.

 SRI serves as a source of comfort, self-confidence and self-expression as effortlessly in the urban jungles of London and New York in winter as amidst the rainforests and beaches of their island of origin in the blaze of summer.

Canali AW17 Menswear Campaign

The protagonist: a modern man who’s elegance is manifest in every occasion, interpreted in this case by the model Mathias Lauridsen, wearing key looks from the AW17 collection with styling by Emil Rebek.

The collection meets the needs of gentlemen who prefer to maintain a level of sophistication in both formal and relaxed contexts, without sacrificing either comfort or style.
 A contemporary aesthetic characterised by clean lines, where iconic fabrics from the grand tradition of men’s’ tailoring intertwine and overlap, giving rise to new and unexpected patterns and motifs.

A palette of saturated colours: plum, browns from natural to burnt; white and black, and a myriad of gradations of grey, which enhance the texture and preciousness of natural fibres like cashmere, chinchilla and Vicuna.

Tailoring is the essence of Canali style and elegance, and remains the absolute protagonist in every single image of the Autumn Winter 2017 campaign.

‘Meet the Shirtmakers’ introduces the craftspeople from Pink’s UK shirt maker, Smyth and Gibson in Londonderry, showcasing the passion they have for their unique craft.

The film documents the extraordinary craftsmanship, skills, detail and experience that goes into making Thomas Pink’s 1984, Imperial and Made To Order shirts from a very small number of specialised shirt makers who have worked in the industry for decades. Quite literally, 50 pairs of hands with over a millennium of experience.

For Richard Gibson, the co-founder of Smyth and Gibson, a passion for shirtmaking and a penchant for detail are a way of life. “lots of shirtmakers will tell you that they sew with ‘18 stitches to the inch’, but then they look like a ploughed field,” he laughs. “It’s not about the number of stitches, which is just a setting on a machine, but how flat they are.” He insists that the real tests of the shirtmaker’s skill are the tiny - almost indecipherable - elements such as exceptionally flat stitching, buttonholes being of a high density but also hand-trimmed, and the placket of a patterned shirt being matched to the pattern on the body, the way the sleeve is set perfectly into the body of a shirt and that the fine fabrics used hold no tension. “They’re what elevates one shirt above another” notes Gibson. By wearing such a shirt, you are signalling something about yourself to the world -- that craft, quality and details matter to you.

Beechdean sponsor Wycombe Wanderers' eyecatching 2017/18 goalkeeper kit


 Wycombe Wanderers’ new goalkeeper kits for the 2017/18 season have been launched live on Sky Sports News – and they’re bound to catch the eyes of supporters and opposition strikers alike! Designed collaboratively by the club and its official kit supplier O’Neills, the kits feature distinctive patterns designed to make the goalkeeper appear larger and more imposing when a striker is bearing down on goal and preparing to shoot.
 The fluorescent yellow keeper kit carries an unmissable multi-coloured kaleidoscope pattern on the front, which resembles a target to aim for – rather than the goal itself – and catches the eye with its disruptive magic-eye effect.
 Meanwhile, the sky blue and baby pink colour combination of the second keeper kit is blended into a similarly attention-grabbing pattern which will stand out from the crowd. Wanderers coach Barry Richardson, who remains registered as a second-choice goalkeeper behind no.1 Scott Brown, said: “There’s been a lot of research into the science behind goalkeeper kits, which is why you see a lot of luminous colours and chevron patterns which enlarge the presence of the keeper in the goal. “We’ve developed that idea over the past couple of years, with a bright lime and green design last year, and have enjoyed working with O’Neills to come up with these designs which we hope will be effective on the pitch and also be popular for fans who’d like to buy the replica versions.”
 Brown added: “I must admit I had to do a double-take when Barry showed me the designs – they’re a lot different from what I’ve worn in the past! But they’ve definitely grown on me and I’m looking forward to wearing them throughout the season, even if I get a few rude comments from opposition fans behind my goal!”.
