A Sicilian interpretation of Sergio Leone’s “A Fistful of Dollars.” Sicily and its many historical beauties were way off the topic at the Dolce & Gabbana Fall/Winter show. This time the designers have turned to a much subtler subject and if everyone thought we would see Sicilian-looking cowboys on the catwalk, well, we were all wrong.     Even if the invitation itself suggested...

On the first day of Milan's men's fashion week, the industry's top editors filled the baroque armchairs and brocade divans of Milan's Napoleon-era Palazzo Crespi to catch a glimpse of what would mark Peter Dundas' first menswear collection – made under the auspices of the Roberto Cavalli...
On the first day of Milan's men's fashion week, the industry's top editors filled the baroque armchairs and brocade divans of Milan's Napoleon-era Palazzo Crespi to catch a glimpse of what would mark Peter Dundas' first menswear collection – made under the auspices of the Roberto Cavalli label. After a lukewarm reception from the industry after his first women's wear show for the label in...

Over the four days of London’s menswear shows, there’s been no shortage of patriotic tub-thumping. Brands trumpet their roots with pride: Made In Britain, Best of British. The BFC’s showrooms, here and abroad, now welcome buyers and press from over forty countries. And schedule stalwarts like...
Over the four days of London’s menswear shows, there’s been no shortage of patriotic tub-thumping. Brands trumpet their roots with pride: Made In Britain, Best of British. The BFC’s showrooms, here and abroad, now welcome buyers and press from over forty countries. And schedule stalwarts like Burberry and Paul Smith have bottled the essence of Britishness itself, expertly packaged to sell...

As London Collections: Men draw to a close, the NEWGEN designers emerge at the forefront of the Fall/Winter 2016 season despite the odds. Current prospects in fashion are indeed bleak. The uncertainty in the wake of Raf Simons’ departure from Christian Dior, which was closely followed by Alber Elbaz’s from Lanvin, is still keenly felt. And, of course, the unprecedented and equally foreboding...

Where would the menswear industry be without its style icons? That trusty band of aristocrats, playboys and matinee idols (Cary Grant, the Duke of Windsor, Bryan Ferry, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen and Jimmy Dean) in their side-parted black-and-white wonderland of crisp white shirts, freshly pressed chinos and winningly furrowed brows. They provide men with a perennial reference bank of...

  A month ago, at the COP21 summit in Paris, world leaders from almost 200 nations signed a historic agreement to act on climate change. At first glance, its target is both grand and magnificently vague; to reduce the rate of global warming to 2 per cent by 2020. But now - country by country,...
  A month ago, at the COP21 summit in Paris, world leaders from almost 200 nations signed a historic agreement to act on climate change. At first glance, its target is both grand and magnificently vague; to reduce the rate of global warming to 2 per cent by 2020. But now - country by country, industry by industry - the world needs to start working on delivering that promise. On the face of...

From early in the morning, the usual hodge-podge of comedy cat gifs and sleepy selfies were nowhere to be seen; instead, no matter how far you scrolled, the same face - at different ages, in different incarnations - appeared over and over again.

The gothic church by Sir Arthur Bloomfield on One Mayfair transformed into Jeremy Scott’s canvas for his next installation of wearable Pop art. Whereas previous collections have seen Scott subvert commodity branding, appropriate traffic iconography and the likes, today witnessed a series of looks that is not to be confused with Warhol’s screen prints or even Chuck Russell’s slapstick comedy,...

ANGELS AND INSECTS AT THE COURT OF MCQUEEN Magnificent doesn’t even come close to describing Whitehall’s Durbar Court, a triple-height atrium drenched in rainbows of granite and exotic marble. Today, as part of the Foreign Office, it’s one of the hubs of modern British bureaucracy – but when...
ANGELS AND INSECTS AT THE COURT OF MCQUEEN Magnificent doesn’t even come close to describing Whitehall’s Durbar Court, a triple-height atrium drenched in rainbows of granite and exotic marble. Today, as part of the Foreign Office, it’s one of the hubs of modern British bureaucracy – but when it was built, midway through the 19th century, it was the heart of the greatest empire the world had...

When Jonathan Anderson took his curtain call earlier today following his Fall/Winter 2016 menswear show, he remained understatedly clad in his uniform: a non-descript navy blue sweater, washed denim, and trainers. His head hung low as he emerged from backstage to take his bow in a manner that was half taciturn, half anxious. Anderson is never one to peacock in front of the camera but his marked...

Designers who have shown in the past two days at London Collections: Men seemed to be treading on eggshells. Fair to say the onslaught of bad news of late around the world has put everyone in a bit of a slump, as each designer tries to pitch their visions of Fall/Winter 2016 in line with the current mood. It goes without saying that a slight misstep could easily end up badly with keyboard...

It’s probably naive (if not downright unfashionable) to talk about hope in 2016. We live in a nervily uncertain world, hyper-informed about its increasingly messy realities. And an emotion as datedly innocent as hope feels entirely out of step with what we see all around us — whether it’s as...
It’s probably naive (if not downright unfashionable) to talk about hope in 2016. We live in a nervily uncertain world, hyper-informed about its increasingly messy realities. And an emotion as datedly innocent as hope feels entirely out of step with what we see all around us — whether it’s as all-consuming as the deepening cracks in global financial and political systems, or as specific as...
