The New York-based menswear and accessories brand is store will be located on Brewer Street and will stock the American brand’s full range of bags, apparel and accessories.

The London store follows the success of the brand’s Tokyo shop that opened last autumn.

' Gok Wan for Specsavers Eyewear launch '

Last Monday, Thanks to MecGlobal I was invited to the second Specsavers launch for Gok Wan new eyewear. The Renowned style and fashion icon Gok Wan recently many cities such as Glasgow, Cardiff etc as part of a national advertising campaign to promote his new range of spectacles but we were glad he popped back to London.

Having been to the first launch which amazed me, I was super excited to see the new frames and designs. We all know Gok has a good taste for fashion so I wasn't surprised if the frames where super chic, trendy and practical. The collection is inspired by the 50s area, its classical chic, stylish, very colourful and very diverse. Many of the frames are specifically designed to suit many face shapes and sizes. There's definitely something for everyone and its totally affordable too. The glasses retail at about £99 and are 2 for 1 which is a bargain as a lot of the designer glasses retail at £150+ a pair.

Also don't forget Former Coronation Street actress, Helen Flanagan is launching the Specsavers’ nationwide search for the Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2012 in support of children's charity, Kidscape.

Marks & Spencers Tailoring Collaboration with Richard James Savile Row

WHAT Marks & Spencers Tailoring Collaboration with Richard James Savile Row
' Savile Row comes to your M&S high street '

How important are suits on a man? Very important indeed. I say this because a good fit is imperative to make sure your clothing sends the proper message secondly a quality suit is always eye-catching and can be spotted by anyone.

Most men think you'd have to spend Savile Row prices for one suit but here's the good news male readers - the amazing Richard James has collaborated with one of our favourite high streets "Marks and Spencer' that's right to offer you Savile quality at high street prices - I mean it really doesn't get any better than that.

“Developed over the past eight months, Marks & Spencer’s latest tailoring collection is a collaboration with the Savile Row tailor Richard James. The new collection includes seven suits, and 11 shirt and tie styles. In the autumn shoes, socks, cufflinks and pocket squares will also be added "
The M&S range’s slimline suits and accessories feature these signature James flourishes, with one- and two-button jackets, side-adjusting as well as belt-looped trousers, hand-finished stitching and his bold use of colour. Who will fail to be impressed by the hot-pink silk tie over a sky-blue shirt in luxurious 120-fold cotton under a pale grey, one button suit? And with the most expensive suit costing less than £500, it makes economic sense.






Keeping to a best-of-British theme, which is central to M&S’s current thinking, the suit fabrics are sourced from Alfred Brown in Leeds and silk for the ties is from the British silk weavers Vanners. 

Having the pleasure to met Richard James on many occasion I can say he's truly a stylish gent and is one of the most respected & talented British designers we have today - period!  If you are wearing the right suit, you don’t have to worry about how you look. The correct attire can go a long way in making a great first impression, and the colours you choose to wear can greatly affect how you are perceived

I absolutely love a high end/high street collaboration, especially this one with respected Savile Row tailor Richard James. So if your thinking about purchasing your next suit - don't go any further check out the Richard James for M&S collection right here
and your local store's from 29th March.
 
 Savile Row Inspired by Richard James for M&S suits from £299-£499 in sizes 36-46; shirts £49.50, ties £29

The Hottest Bow Ties

WHEN 20th March 2012
' The Hottest Bow Ties '

There's something about the bow tie that continues to capture my attention. Part of it is the general devil may attitude of bow tie wearers, who refuse to let trendy styles get in their way. People have many hobbies in life and mine include collecting and buying Bow Ties- Yes that's right im a Bow Tie addict.Part of it is the long list of heroes who wore or wear bow ties such as Michael Jackson, Prince etc. 

I've been spreading the word that'Bow ties are cool' and it looks as though young shoppers have taken this comments to heart.  So when I discovered the amazing Jill Pineda who offers nothing but super stylish designs, patterns, prints I was in Love!  The Queen of Bow Tie is an international success especially in the US and LA Land. Her bow ties are a huge HIT from household names such as The Kardashian's. Not only is Jill a super cool chick but one stylish personal stylist and designer. I truly welcome her Bow Ties in England with open arms. So fashionista's make sure you check out her site and blog

' Esemplare's SS12 collection '

Last week, thanks to Mission PR and White smoke communication invited me to an exclusive breakfast to preview Esemplare's SS12 menswear collection.

The Esemplare pop-up shop has arrived at Bluebird at the best quality crafted for the SS12 collection. The label has been designed by Alessandro Pungetti and was created by Manifattura Riese Spa which has been making clothes since 1961. The pop-up will launch the SS12 collection comprising classic outdoor jackets which have been updated with strong fabrics such as Japanese cotton. Nylon is a key element to this collection creating a wrinkled effect after being treated. 

One of my favourite has to be the dyed nylon parkas as well as exclusive ‘Crincol’ nylon fabric which fabulously creates a  lightweight, waterproof and outerwear. 
Also another one has to be the Esemplare Reversible George Salvia Jacket. The Reversible Double jacket with the Removable vest lining with crinkle effect makes it water resistant and offers that monofilament metallic effect.  Also the cotton nylon blends have also created oiled finishes giving a wet look, while functional details like multitask pockets, reversible jackets, wired hoods, semi automatic buttons and removable lining will be available.











Thanks to team Mission PR and White Smoke Communication for the lovely breakfast and showcase.
