Part of an ongoing collaboration with photographer Daniel O’Connell, Last of the English Roses was shot in my (then) back garden in Clapton, among the actual blousy, overblown blooms referred to in our chosen title. My styling approach with Daniel involves joining the dots between iconic menswear styles, drawn from a range of subcultures, with the newest, most interesting faces in the industry.  This  editorial shoot featured Mancunian circus arts student/it-can-only-be-a-matter-of-time-till-he’s-a-rockstar Felix.  Rocking up to the shoot in combat boots with a bleached skinhead and earring, Felix’s sense of personal style was perfect for the post-punk theme I’d conjured up.

JW Anderson Having grabbed the headlines with his Grindr-hosted live stream, there was little that JW Andersen would do to raise eyebrows any further, given that his designs are already renowned for their off kilter, gender defying singularity. Looks including satin pyjamas in pastel colours and a cropped floral quilted…

Day 2 of London Collections: Men is typically the busiest of the whole long weekend and AW16 was no exception, here are some personal highlights from a packed day of shows and presentations. Charged with the unenviable 9.30 Saturday morning slot, E.Tautz nevertheless offered us some warming nostalgia to counteract…

LC:M is back again, and feels bigger and more sprawling this time with attendees being expected to navigate three official locations as well as the off-schedule curveballs in Soho and beyond. What used to feel like a celebration of menswear is now very much a corporate machine but London is…
