That’s all for now, folks. The show, quite literally, is over. London’s Autumn/Winter 2018 menswear collections came and went in the space of less than eighty hours; a stripped-back season, shorn of familiar flagship names. But while it may have been low-key, this season also allowed audiences a...
That’s all for now, folks. The show, quite literally, is over. London’s Autumn/Winter 2018 menswear collections came and went in the space of less than eighty hours; a stripped-back season, shorn of familiar flagship names.

In older times, the 6th of January marked Twelfth Night: the traditional end of the Christmas season, and a night of mischief and riotous misrule. This year, though, it also marks the start of London’s menswear shows. And while it still felt like the end of Christmas in the West End – the rotting...
In older times, the 6th of January marked Twelfth Night: the traditional end of the Christmas season, and a night of mischief and riotous misrule. This year, though, it also marks the start of London’s menswear shows. And while it still felt like the end of Christmas in the West End – the rotting trees, the workmen dismantling street lights, the stores full of sale signs – there was little...

All bets are on Kiko Kostadinov to be one of the breakout stars from the London stable of designers.

All bets are on Kiko Kostadinov to be one of the breakout stars from the London stable of designers. By that, I mean a brand that has a real chance of commercial success in the same league as Gosha Rubchinskiy.

Two women embracing in bed wearing next to nothing, with a caption that goes something along the lines of “love knows no boundaries.” These types of ads used to sell everything from push-up bras to high-tech sneakers and have been...
