A bit of a departure from the usual articles about clothes and accessories, but sometimes you come across a video that stops you in your tracks.
Even though I can’t honestly say I’ve given much consideration to BMX since I was around 10 years old, this video showing professional BMX rider Tim Knoll performing stunts on the streets of Berlin is incredibly captivating. Not only does it feature some jaw-dropping stunts, but it’s beautifully shot, elevating high-def Steadicam operation to an art form. Continue reading →
I really love Acne Studios. They’re one of those brands that just gets the basics so right – from their tees and sweats, right up to their formal shirts, each piece is beautifully finished, and uses some of the best materials around.

I’m a big fan of independently-produced city guides. They’re a great way of familiarising yourself with a place you haven’t yet visited and are also a means of breathing new life into a city that you’ve long become familiar with.
Cereal, the magazine-slash-journal, produced two such guides in 2015 – simply titled ‘London’ and ‘New York’. Each one details the places to go, things to see and even include essays from notable residents of each city. Continue reading →
Yes, you read that correctly. Lauded Italian powerhouse Versace has released a collection of exclusive Emojis for iPhone, which allows users to recreate their famous Medusa logo using a variety of smiley yellow characters, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Continue reading →
Valentine’s Day is one of those occasions that makes gift-buying especially difficult – even more so if you’re looking for a gift for your husband or boyfriend.
The stores are full of heart-shaped balloons, boxes of chocolates, red lacy lingerie, flowers – all perfect gifts for the lady in your life – but there’s slim pickings when it comes to gifts for us guys. Continue reading →
Founded in 2004, Common Projects has quickly risen to become the footwear of choice for those seeking a minimalist silhouette, subtle branding and premium materials. Buttery-smooth Nappa Leather and flawless hand-stitching are in plentiful supply on each and every pair of their sneakers, and the versatility of an all-white low-profile sneaker really cannot be overstated.

After this week’s post showing the the most incredible fashion adverts from the 1980s, it turns out the well was far deeper than I’d realised, and that there’s a whole host of unintentionally hilarious fashion adverts out there. So here’s your second fix of moustaches, heavy knits and intense stares. Continue reading →
We all know that fashion in the 70s and 80s was pretty extreme, and whilst the actual garments themselves are long-gone, thankfully the adverts can still be found online.
Long story short, they’re fantastic. Here’s a selection of some of the best. Continue reading →
