RULES OF DRESSING FOR THE ENGLISH SUMMER

19.07.16

Despite our annual hopes of soaring climates come June and July, the reality of the Great British Summer is sometimes a slightly less tropical affair. In turn, dressing for the season can be tricky to master, so to make things easier, we’ve compiled a set of ‘rules’ to keep in mind that may make perfecting your look a somewhat more effortless task.

SIX LOOKS TO TRY THIS SUMMER

08.07.16

Try as we might, there’s no getting around the fact that sometimes a summer doesn’t feel much like a summer at all. While we may be optimistically wedded to the idea of long sunny days and barbecues without threatening clouds collecting overhead, we’re hereby calling for a reality check on the season formerly known as summer.

Don’t pack away your T-shirts and shorts just yet though – we’re not completely writing off chances for basking in rays, we’re simply giving you a sartorial briefing for all eventualities. Come rain or shine, here are six looks to see you through summer.

ALEXANDER SKARSGARD WEARS REISS

07.07.16

When it comes to dressing for summer, it pays to resist the temptation to slip into your old uniform of a T-shirt and shorts. Why? There are dividends to be reaped by getting out of your comfort zone.

Case in point is Swedish actor Alexander Skarsgard who stepped out in our linen and cotton blend Palma shirt when promoting his latest movie in London.

Proving that summer print need not be loud and capitalising on the season’s linen love affair, Skarsgard’s look is one you’d do well to mentally bookmark when planning your summer holiday dressing.

JUST LANDED: REISS ON MADISON AVENUE, NEW YORK

22.06.16

2016 has proven to be a year of continued global expansion for Reiss and today marks the launch of a further store opening, this time on New York’s iconic Madison Avenue. Much like the stores prior to this one, the architectural concept has been specifically designed with its location in mind, and whilst it stays true to the clean-cut aesthetic established at Reiss, there are elements that make each space completely unique. We look a little closer into what Dorrien Hopley of design agency, d-raw has created.

FASHION NOTES: WHAT TO WEAR TO A WEDDING

14.06.16

What to wear to a wedding is arguably one of the most thought about sartorial conundrums come spring/summer, and the maze of options grows ever bigger with each passing year. Invites become more creative, venues more eclectic, and dress codes more modern. Here, we delve a little deeper into the types of weddings and invites that you might receive, and look at contemporary styling options.

COMPLYING WITH THE DRESS CODE: ROYAL ASCOT RACES

10.06.16

Bookmarked as one of the summer’s most prestigious sporting occasions, Royal Ascot is a flurry of racing competition and impeccable dress. The four-day event is loved for its fashion as much as its horse racing and is not one to take lightly when it comes to choosing what to wear. Traditionally, a strict dress code ensued, with women expected to wear a hat as well as complying to regulatory dress requirements. Today, this still stands for certain ticket holders, but there are varying degrees of expectation depending on your entry pass. Here, we look at the rules surrounding each and offer suggestions on how best to ensure you’re styled appropriately on the day.

If you’re not familiar with menswear’s latest hybrid word – Athleisure – then it’s time to familiarise yourself, because try as you might, you’re going to be seeing a lot more of it over the coming months.
