FASHION NOTES: SS16 SWIMWEAR

01.05.16

Planned and curated over a six month timeline, Poolside is one of the Getty Image gallery’s biggest exhibits of the year. The presentation celebrates the work of one of the most influential magazine photographers of the 50s, 60s and 70s, Slim Aarons, and it presents an idea of escapism that links perfectly with the start of the summer season. We caught up with the gallery manager, Anthony Gammell to talk through the exhibit that inspired the Reiss SS16 swimwear designs.

Poolside can be found at Getty Images Gallery, 46 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DX

Open until the 7th May, 10-5.30pm Monday – Friday and 12 – 5.30pm on Saturday

FIVE WAYS TO WEAR A SHIRT WELL

26.04.16

If shirts only occupy a place in your workwear wardrobe, this season we urge you to reconsider this simple – yet surprisingly versatile – staple. There’ll always be a special place in our hearts for the white work shirt that just works every time (excuse the pun), but right now shirts boast many more qualities than just being a solid choice for wearing beneath a suit.

2016 is the year that the shirt got less serious and more stylish. What does that mean for you? Well, chiefly it means that when it comes to shirts, you’ve got much more choice. There’s a catch though. Whereas you can rely on a white work shirt not to cause sartorial consternation, SS16′s crop of shirts can be a little more tricky to master.

Here are the five shirts you should stand up and take notice of and the savviest ways to wear them. We’ve got summer style buttoned up.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR SHOES CLEAN

23.04.16

Sneakers, dress shoes or boots – we love shoes. But, no matter how many resolutions we make to keep them pristine, the reality of having them hit the pavement day in, day out means that they inevitably show signs of a life on the road.

Then there are the unexpected disasters to contend with (namely muddy puddles) which are cause enough for a micro meltdown.

No longer do you have to suffer the indignity of stained sneakers or lacklustre loafers – we’ve compiled a list of tips for making sure your shoes stay looking their best.
