Style File: Autumn Weekender

Last week I was invited to a press preview of the latest in online men's retail: StyleGun.com. The differential with Style Gun is that, in fact, it actually has a point of difference. Developing their own method of personalising the online experience, customers can select body type, eye colour and proportions to find the best clothing to match them. 

Although I don't always wear clothes that are best suited for my height (a tartan suit is always hard to pull-off), I think many guys will love this concept. And, with a brand mix including John Smedley, Oliver Sweeney and Hartford, I had a lot of fun rummaging through their metaphorical wardrobe. Here's my top picks for fast approaching Autumnal weekends.

Duchamp London x The Gentleman Blogger

This week, I teamed up with luxury menswear brand Duchamp London and fellow blogger Matthew Zorpas to launch their new roll neck knitwear. Shot around Finsbury Park in North London, Matthew integrated four colours of roll neck into his daily wardrobe with superb results. He's a man after my own heart using tailored blazers and vintage accessories to offset the chic sophistication of Duchamp.

Fans of the brand can also win their own roll neck. Follow and Tweet @DuchampLondon and @MatthewZorpas your #RollNeckStyle tips, inspiration and photos, and you could win your favourite colour.

Check out Matthew's blog at TheGentlemanBlogger.com, and the Duchamp London blog at DuchampLondon.com.

Instax at London Fashion Week

I'm having a love affair with instant film. Having used a Polaroid 600 camera for about 6 years, I was heartbroken when the announcement came that Polaroid would stop producing film and since then haven't managed to find anything to match it's colour quality. One of the biggest reason I love the experience of instant photography (of the film kind) is it's social element. As the film develops, everyone crowds around to watch as the image slowly appears 'Back To The Future' style.

When Fujifilm asked me to shoot London Fashion Week with their Instax 210, I was more than a little excited. I've never photographed street style in this way, and I knew it'd get a great reaction from the participants. I wasn't wrong.

The Power of a Pencil

I've always admired illustration as a form of art. There's something telling about a cannily formed line drawing. Luckily enough, I've had the pleasure of meeting, knowing and working with some incredibly talented people. Four of these include artists Charlie Herman, Hormazd Narilwalla, Lauren Zeitoun and Danielle Meder, who over the past year have all transformed my image in their own uniquely creative way. A thank you to them all - check out their fantastic work below.

Charlie Herman was educated at the School of Communication Arts in London and has a portfolio to match the best. He's got a photo-realistic quality which is superbly difficult to create, while still adding his own touch to everything he produces.

I've never met anyone like Hormazd Narilwalla before, and I don't think I ever will. Having perfected his craft working as the Resident Artist with a respected Saville Row tailor, he is currently creating portraits from the bespoke suit patterns of deceased clients. The result is a abstract, geometric perfection. 

Photobucket

Parisienne Lauren Zeitoun has an instantly likeable personality and an infectious smile. These qualities are clear in her work, as her passion for vintage comics and storytelling shows through quirky, fun illustration.

Danielle Meder is a Canadian fashion illustrator. She's one of these people that most people envy: multi-skilled in every sense. With a vast knowledge of fashion, an true intellectual, talented freeform illustrator and paper doll master, she's just being greedy. Check out her blog at FinalFashion.ca.
