INSPIRATIONS: JEAN CHARLOT

23.04.14

Our SS14 colour palette isn’t a tropical affair. Instead, Riviera influences led to a sun-bleached range of hues which are soft and feminine rather than bright and brash.

Our designers took inspiration from French artist, Jean Charlot, when thinking colour, and here’s why.

SS14 TREND: TEXTURE BLEND

21.04.14

Texture is a bit of a buzz word in fashion at the moment, and particularly in a summer season when cottons, silks, leathers and rich embroideries are tossed together to create beautiful, sunshine-ready looks.

It’s not about choosing a texture and sticking to it though, we suggest you blend and contrast these luxe fabrics to build the most tactile of ensembles.

HOW TO DRINK: WHISKY COCKTAILS

19.04.14

During our recent Personal Tailoring Evening our friends at Chivas Regal were on hand to treat guests to their aged whiskies which provided the perfect thirst quencher for some of the city’s most stylish gentlemen.

Inspired by the evening, in pursuit of the perfect tipple for the modern man we visited Opium in London’s Soho where we asked Drinks Master Bruce Govia to devise the ultimate cocktail menu. The result was a masterclass in mixing which delighted the palette.

To drink how we drunk discover the menu’s recipes and methods below.

INSPIRATIONS: LA DOLCE VITA

12.04.14

Not so much the film itself, but the La Dolce Vita vibe has certainly had an influence over our womenswear collection this season.

The 1960 comedy-drama written and directed by Federico Fellini has a glamorous aesthetic which appealed to our design team.
