J.W. Anderson Nixes London Men’s Show to Pursue Coed Model

HIS AND HERS: The coed juggernaut keeps gathering steam.
One of London’s most anticipated men’s shows, J.W. Anderson, will vacate that calendar from January and shift to a coed display timed with the British capital’s fashion week for women in February.
The fall 2018 collections are to be paraded jointly on Feb. 17, and the London-based brand will stage two shows a year and not four.
In the past month alone, Balenciaga and Salvatore Ferragamo are among brands shifting to a combined women’s and men’s format from next season.
Etro, Dsquared2, Calvin Klein, Burberry, Kenzo, Moschino, Vivienne Westwood, Tom Ford and Cédric Charlier are among others to have already jumped on the bandwagon.
Generally, having one display instead of two per season allows brands to reduce costs, while presenting a cohesive fashion message that works for many labels in an increasingly gender-blurry world — and one increasingly thin on men’s fashion publications.
Prized for his fast-paced shows and daring designs, Anderson was recently honored by the British Fashion Council as British Designer of the Year for Women’s Wear for his J.W. Anderson collection and Accessories Designer of the Year for Loewe during a gala event at Royal Albert Hall.

What happens on Valentine’s Night, stays on Valentine’s Night… That’s the rule. After a trip home to bury his father, US photographer in London Caleb Landry finds himself stranded in a Soho bar full of boozy women brooding his way through his least favourite night of the year. But when college art teacher Rosie Smith tries out the cheesiest pick-up line ever on him, Cal becomes captivated by this good girl with a filthy mind – especially when he discovers she has a V-Day allergy of her own. So he dares her to one smokin’ hot Valentine’s night hook-up with no questions asked, satisfaction guaranteed… But when Valentine’s Night turns into the morning after, suddenly Rosie’s asking questions she shouldn’t, and putting Cal in danger of breaking his number one rule.  *previously titled Daring the Bad Boy

Snoop Dogg ft. October London “Go On,” Skepta ft. A$AP Rocky & A$AP Nast “Ghost Ride” & More | Daily Visuals 12.11.17

Snoop Dogg knows that you’re only as young as you feel and judging from the way he lives his life the Hip-Hop OG loves to live by Jay-Z’s mantra, 40 is the new 20.

Temperley London Pre-Fall 2018

Alice Temperley referenced a myriad of influences — such as 20th-century female explorers, nature, archeology and Peter Beard’s travel journals — for pre-fall. The Temperley woman was a dynamic, wandering traveler who was on a journey and spent her days exploring.
Temperley juxtaposed feminine aspects of the range with more masculine shapes, which added a cool edge to her relaxed and contemporary lineup of daywear, tailoring and eveningwear.
She incorporated cotton drill men’swear tailoring, oversized silhouettes and cinched-in waists against soft chiffon fabrics and florals. There was a jumpsuit that featured a bold graphic embroidery influenced by Tibetan Tiger rugs. A tailored khaki suit was belted at the waist. The jacket, which came a bit oversized, was paired with wide-leg cropped trousers.
For eveningwear, she concentrated on spines and nature as embellishments. She employed sequins and mirrored Perspex, which were hand-cut. She looked at the spines of leaves, animal prints and fossils and devised geometric patterns, which were hand-sewn as accents on floor-sweeping gowns and jumpsuits.
The designer worked in a palette filled with camel, green, khaki, dark olive, pecan, saffron, savannah, scarlet, turmeric and vermilion.

Pawsons Host Dinner to Mark Trophy Design for London Fashion Awards

TROPHY HUSBAND: The prince of minimalist design, John Pawson, has a long history of setting some big challenges for the craftsmen at Swarovski, and the crystal trophy with its convex lens that he’s designed for the 2017 Fashion Awards in London is the latest in a long line.
“It’s the most simple of forms — a cylinder — but it’s only faceted on one side, which is unusual,” said Pawson from his basement kitchen in London’s Holland Park, where he and his wife Catherine hosted a dinner to mark the trophy’s reveal ahead of the awards, which will take place in partnership with Swarovski on Dec. 4 at the Royal Albert Hall.
There was a problem with the colors, too: Each crystal cylinder has a lacquer “thread” of a different color streaking through the center. Because it’s impossible to put certain materials through crystal, Pawson and Swarovski had to create an acrylic tube to hold the colors — which include gold, silver, platinum and ebony — in place.
The two have traveled this winding road before: In 2011, Pawson created a work called “Perspectives,” which involved a Swarovski-made concave crystal meniscus — the largest lens possible to manufacture. It was a feat of

Although far from a pedestrian collection of photographs, these are taken as a pedestrian with an iPhone. With very few exceptions, all the photographs are untouched by effects. Each image comes alive through a combination of elements, separately or together: the time of day, angle of sun, the color and quality of the glass, surface heat and length of shot, interior colors, exterior motion, lines and space of subjects, people, displays, height, reflection and of course how clean the glass. All of these elements play a part in the composition.&#xa0; The images are fleeting. Coming together one day and disappearing the following day. Next time you walk down the street, see what reflective view you can capture through your landscape, urban or rural, and share with me and others.

What to Watch: London Fashion Week Attracts New, International Names

In September, London Fashion Week will take an international turn with Tommy Hilfiger staging his first see-now-buy-now runway event outside the U.S., and Emporio Armani showing — and hosting a party — to mark the reopening of the brand’s Bond Street store.
Ralph & Russo, which is based in London but shows its couture in Paris, will make its ready-to-wear debut on Sept. 15, the first day of the five-day showcase, which runs until Sept. 19. The moves are part of the British Fashion Council’s grand plan to open its arms even wider to the outside world as Britain prepares for Brexit.
“We are focused on maintaining London’s reputation: These international brands showing here is proof that our industry is truly global and that London plays a unique and important role,” said Caroline Rush, chief executive officer of the BFC, adding the aim is “to maintain London as an open and commercial space for fashion business.”
Hilfiger is to close London Fashion Week with a runway spectacle that’s previously taken place in New York and Los Angeles. Hilfiger will stage TommyNow at 7 p.m. on Sept. 19 at the city’s Roundhouse concert venue. The last time Armani showed in London was during his “One Night

Carolina Herrera to Start Selling Bridal in London at Moda Operandi

For the first time, Carolina Herrera will be selling her wedding gowns in the U.K. through a new partnership with Moda Operandi.
From Nov. 25 to 28, a Carolina Herrera Bridal trunk show will be held at Moda Operandi’s London store in Belgravia. Shoppers will be the first to pre-order gowns from the fall 2016 collection. The alliance is in step with the American designer company’s focus on expanded global distribution. The three-day event will mark the first time Moda Operandi has gotten into bridal in such a major way.
Brides-to-be will find fluid silhouettes with embellished intricate lace scallop necklines and a bodice that appears to have a panted motif due to crystals and hand-placed lace on organza. Other styles feature chantilly and guipure lace appliqués on tulle, and sheer layers and pleats. For fall, there is also a palette of blush tones and nudes.
Since she launched her bridal collection in 1987, Herrera has dressed a range of well-known brides including, recently, model Hilary Rhoda, who wed former New York Ranger Sean Avery last month. Olivia Palermo wore a Carolina Herrera ensemble for her wedding last year. Many fans of the designer know her wedding gowns from Kristin Stewart’s “Bella Swan”

London Aisle View: Kidman and Rylance, Stage Door Neighbors

2015-10-10-1444516529-9547497-NicoleKidmanRosalindFranklinbyJohanPersson.jpg

Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958) was a British crystallographer who, in a laboratory at King’s College in London, was able to capture the key to DNA on an x-ray. This led directly to the discovery of the double helix and, ultimately, a Nobel Prize. But not for Franklin; it seems that the telltale x-ray (“Photograph 51”) was more or less pilfered by Franklin’s research partner Maurice Wilkins. He ultimately shared the Nobel with James Watson and Francis Crick, while the contribution of Franklin–who by that point had died of ovarian cancer–was more or less left in the dust.

The second-biggest surprise of Anna Ziegler’s new play, Photograph 51, is that Ziegler has managed to take this drily historic tale and turn it into an engrossing scientific whodunit, or rather who’lldoit. Ziegler is an American playwright, whose A Delicate Ship was well-received in August in an off-Broadway production by the Playwrights Realm. In Photograph 51–produced and directed by Michael Grandage, of Frost/Nixon and Red–the drama more or less bristles.

Franklin’s failing, in Ziegler’s telling, was not so much that she was Jewish and she was a woman, but that she didn’t play well with others; said others being white male Christians who see no impropriety in taking the fruits of her labor and would think nothing of sending her to the back of the lab to make a pot of tea.

The biggest surprise in Photograph 51, though, is the performance of Nicole Kidman as the fair Rosalind. Kidman has had an impressive film career, including a 2003 Oscar for “The Hours,” but I–not having seen her on stage (and, literally, in the flesh) since David Hare’s overhyped but underwhelming Blue Room in 1998–was not prepared for the Kidman now on the stage of the Noël Coward. She carries the play, seemingly effortlessly; Rosalind–as drawn by Ziegler–stands out as the victor in a world of men, and Kidman does the same. We never, for a moment, doubt the character’s strength; and Kidman’s great strength in Photograph 51 is that we see and believe in Franklin all through without the distraction that can intrude when–in mid-performance–the folks in the audience remember that that’s a movie star up there.

Grandage’s compelling work is no surprise, nor are the contributions of his frequent designer Christopher Oram (of Frost/Nixon, Red and Wolf Hall). Stephen Campbell Moore makes a perfect foil as Rosalind’s lab partner Wilkins, with amusing turns by Will Attenborough as Watson (with upstanding hair that looks like it was permanently jolted over in the electrics lab) and Patrick Kennedy (as a young colleague from America). But it’s Kidman who brings life to Ziegler’s Photograph 51.

Another electric performance is on view down the block at the Duke of York’s. No present-day theatergoer will be surprised by this; given that it’s Mark Rylance on the boards, the surprise would be if the performance were not commanding.

Renaissance music expert Claire van Kampen might not be familiar by name, although anyone who attended Rylance’s 2013 Twelfth Night/Richard III at the Belasco will attest to her abilities as composer and musical director. She is a long-time artistic associate of Rylance, and wife as well. Her musical interests no doubt brought her attention to the strange tale of King Philippe V of Spain–grandson of the Sun King, Louis XIV of France–and the internationally-famous Italian castrato, Farinelli (Carlo Broschi). In 1737, Farinelli visited the court of the bipolar Philippe, and his golden voice seemed to lift the King out of his depression. So much so, that the singer spent an extended period with Philippe in Madrid and the Spanish countryside.

Van Kampen has turned the tale into a full-scale drama, loaded with selections by Handel. In Philippe–who begins the action infirmly sprawled on his bed, fishing for goldfish in a fishbowl–she has contrived a perfect role for Rylance. He is well matched by Sam Crane as Farinelli and Melody Grove as Philippe’s Queen Isabella. The three stars are joined by Iestyn Davies, who sings the role of Farinelli. Van Kampen and Dove simply have him stand onstage beside Crane, in identical costume, and sing like a falsetto canary–and this works extremely well.

2015-10-10-1444518320-6178510-IestynDaviesFarinellisingerMarkRylancePhilippeVandSamCraneFarinelliinFarinelliandtheKing.PhotographybySimonAnnandCustom.jpg.jpg

Photo: Simon Annand

At times, the triangle and all that music make us think that van Kampen was somehow thinking–consciously or un–of Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus. There are also moments, I’m afraid, where you might feel maybe you’d rather be watching Rylance in Shaffer’s Amadeus.

Even so, van Kampen and Rylance have given us a juicy, bounteously musical evening. John Dove has directed the production, which originated at Shakespeare’s Globe, and it is sumptuously designed by Jonathan Fensom. The musicians adorn a balcony overlooking the action; a couple dozen ticketbuyers are seated in onstage boxes; and the action spills out into the auditorium. There is also an arresting sequence in which the singing Farinelli flies, in this historic playhouse which hosted the original 1904 production of Peter Pan.

Photograph 51, by Anna Ziegler, opened September 14, 2015 and continues through November 21 at the Noël Coward Theatre. Farinelli and the King, by Claire van Kampen, opened September 29, 2015 and continues through December 5 at the Duke of York’s Theatre

Mulberry Marks Launch of New Book on Creative London

BURNING OUT? Mulberry and its new creative director Johnny Coca hosted the launch of one very weighty tome about London’s buzzing creative community — and its future.
“London Burning: Portraits From a Creative City” is a snapshot of the state of fashion, art, cinema, theatre, music, architecture and technology edited by the writer and publisher Hossein Amirsadeghi and the editor Maryam Eisler.
Published by Thames & Hudson, it contains more than 100 new interviews with the likes of Nicholas Serota, director of Tate; Antony Gormley; Gilbert & George; Fergus Henderson and Ruthie Rogers; Alexandra Shulman; Grayson Perry; and Coca himself, who said it was “exhilarating” to take part in the project.
“I’m fascinated by the creativity of others — and instinctively support projects that celebrate it,” said Coca, who saw his inclusion in the book as a “true welcome” back to London, where he has worked before, and taught fashion students at Central Saint Martins.
The event took place at the Institute of Contemporary Arts with guests including Saffron Aldridge, Bethan Laura Wood, Mollie Dent Brocklehurst, Mark Hix, Mat Collishaw and Ron Arad. Artists including Delilah, Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks, Natalia Kremen, NTS Radio and Charlie Siem performed.

Jerome Dreyfuss to Open First London Unit on Corner of Bruton Street

JEROME’S NEW HOME: French accessories designer Jerome Dreyfuss will open his first stand-alone store in London later this month, on the corner of Bruton Street and Berkeley Square.
The store, at 20 Berkeley Square, spans 1,296 square feet, with interiors designed by Franklin Azzi. The design was inspired by Dreyfuss’ love of modernism and, more specifically, Brutalism, as well as the creations of Carlo Scarpa.
Materials include different types of concrete and oak. “I have always been fascinated by London, an amazing city in constant renewal, forever changing, forever daring. And on a personal note, I love the English people and their humor. I think it fits exactly with the spirit of the brand,” he said.
The new space, formerly occupied by Zenith Bank, is a few steps away from Dreyfuss’ wife’s Isabel Marant’s store, and will be his eighth stand-alone shop. He also sells through shops-in-shop worldwide and at stores including Harrods, Liberty, Matches, Net-a-porter.com, and Le Bon Marché.

Fabiana Filippi Unveils London Store

LONDON CALLING: Italian luxury cashmere label Fabiana Filippi officially unveiled its first British store on London’s Conduit Street during London Fashion Week.
The 2,300-square-foot space stands at 42 Conduit Street and spans four floors of a grand Victorian town house. The Perugia, Italy-based label tapped Italian architect Nicola Quadri to design the store, which has a warm-yet-modern feel. In terms of furniture, the label has honed in on Scandinavian pieces, such as midcentury cherry wood coffee tables by Triva-NK; Sixties-era sofas and armchairs by Carl Malmsten and a Fifties brass and crystal chandelier designed by Hans-Agne Jakobsson for Markaryd.
The store carries Fabiana Filippi’s entire collection of women’s wear, and is near Berluti, Vivienne Westwood, Moschino and Donna Karan on the street.
Mario Filippi Coccetta, founder and chief executive officer of Fabiana Filippi, said that while the label chose the Conduit Street location partly for its “proximity to Bond Street,” he liked that Conduit Street is “more intimate and relaxed.” He added that company’s London opening is part of its strategy to open stores in “the main European capitals.”
Earlier this year, the retailer opened units in Paris and Rome, adding to its boutiques elsewhere in France and Italy, and in Lithuania, Russia and Sweden.

Louis Vuitton Christens ‘Series 3’ Expo in London

LONDON — The modern fashion show is entertaining and glamorous, but over in roughly 12 minutes flat.
Louis Vuitton’s “Series 3” exhibition that opens to the public at 180 Strand here on Monday is designed to decrypt the spectacle, and exalt all the craft and creativity that goes into it.
“Fashion is a circus. There’s very little discussion about the content. But you have to go into the before, the during and the after. And if you do it in an appropriate way, it’s unforgettable,” Michael Burke, chairman and chief executive officer of Louis Vuitton, said during a walkthrough of the sprawling, high-tech showcase. “We’re experimenting with how to make you feel the show more intensely than being at the show.”
The show in question is Nicolas Ghesquière’s fall collection, paraded in a series of geodesic domes erected at the foot of the Frank Gehry-designed Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris in March. A skeletal example of one dome lords over the ceiling of the darkened room that opens the exhibition, cuing the midcentury period that the French designer frequently mines. Visitors then traverse a futuristic tunnel that plunges them into the exhibition.
Even fashion professionals could easily miss key details from the front row, including

Minnie Mouse Style Exhibition Lands in London

MOUSE IN THE HOUSE: Challenging the notion that the fashion world takes itself too seriously is the “Minnie: Style Icon” exhibition at Blacks Members Club. Walt Disney’s Minnie Mouse was a fashionista from the outset after all: SHE made her debut alongside Mickey in a 1928 animation based on the Twenties flapper as portrayed by actress Colleen Moore, and her signature polka dot skirt was inspired by Coco Chanel’s Easy Jersey collection.
The show, a partnership between Disney and the British Fashion Council, explores the character of the world’s most stylish mouse and her influence on fashion and pop culture via archive imagery, sketches, celebrity portraits and fashion spreads. It also showcases exclusive photography by model Georgia May Jagger.
Highlights include Herb Ritts’ 1987 shot of Madonna sporting a pair of mouse ears in her Tokyo hotel room; a similarly accessorized Chanel Iman on the back of an elephant for Vogue Germany; and pictures from earlier this year of British fashion designer Ashley William’s Minnie Style collection for Dazed magazine starring Georgia May Jagger – not to mention Jagger’s own snaps of Minnie in a domestic setting. “I’m really excited to be including my own photographic work, interpreting Minnie’s style and making

6 Blow-Dry, Braid, and Bob Bars Worth Visiting in London This Week

Lily Donaldson Terry Richardson Vogue

British girls may be known for their artfully rumpled hair, but make no mistake—it takes a masterful hand to conjure that kind of easy insouciance. Once something of a novelty in the city, blow-dry bars (and their quirkier braiding counterparts) have been taking London by storm, with a flurry of new speed studios opening their doors. If you’re in the city this weekend, there’s no shortage of destinations worth adding to your black book.

 

The Bob Bar at George Northwood
Ever wanted to try a bob but weren’t sure you could actually commit? Then step into hairstylist George Northwood’s salon and have a seat at his “try before you buy” Bob Bar. There, a lineup of realistic-looking wigs inspired by the signature lengths of Jennifer Lawrence, Gwyneth Paltrow (as Margot Tenenbaum), Alexa Chung, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley can be tried on and adjusted before you submit to the shears.

Whether you’re in need of an updo before a big event (but don’t have the time or the inclination to be in the hairstylist’s chair for too long) or you just want a clean, swingy blowout, Duck & Dry on King’s Road has become the city’s go-to for speed hair treatments. There are 16 looks to choose from on the menu—and, yes, you can duck in and duck out for any of them.

Braid Bar at Selfridges
The concept is simple, the execution spot-on. Realizing there wasn’t something that catered to the fun and frivolous nature of the braid, Braid Bar founders Sarah Hiscox and Willa Burton set about launching their power plaiting studio in the style of a blowout bar. After popping up at events and festivals such as Port Eliot and Secret Garden, The Braid Bar has found a permanent home in Selfridges; during London Fashion Week, they’ve also set up a pop-up outpost on Brewer Street, right opposite the British Fashion Council’s Headquarters.

Services here are made to have staying power, starting with a serious shampoo using Philip B products and a divine scalp massage that results in extra volume and bounce that looks that much better after you’ve slept on it.

The Celebrity Piercing Guru With a London Pop-Up Worth Visiting This Week

london tattoo pop-up shop

The “tragus,” the “rook,” the “conch”: A new vernacular of vocabulary has been circulating amid fashion editors, street style stars and British It girls this week, as they discuss which body part to get pierced at a highly anticipated pop-up during London Fashion Week. Sparked, perhaps, by the carryover effect of Brooklyn’s booming piercing culture, or the sight of Givenchy’s elaborate lobe and septum rings on the fashion house’s Fall 2015 runway, the trend is now gaining traction in London. But while its visual impact is immediate, its subtler nuances can be hard to get right. The jewelry needs to be delicate, the placement is key, and an expert eye is needed to make sure that the earrings sit ‘just so.’ So when it was announced that New York City–based piercer and jewelry designer Maria Tash—whose clients include Zoë Kravitz, Scarlett Johansson, and Gwyneth Paltrow—was doing a pop-up in Holland Park this week, a flurry of bookings immediately followed suit. Open for only four days at the Josh Wood Atelier in Holland Park, we suggest you start queuing up now.

London Designer Katie Eary Teams With KFC on Capsule Collection

PLAYING CHICKEN: KFC has recruited edgy London men’s wear designer Katie Eary in its mission to demonstrate how much can be done in a lunch hour.
As part of the fast food brand’s #PackMoreIntoLunch campaign, KFC challenged Eary to create a capsule women’s wear collection for spring 2016 in 60 minutes.
On the day of the challenge, 25 machinists sewed like crazy to create 13 looks, worn by 10 models in a catwalk show at the Old Truman Brewery in London.
The collection, like the playful and irreverent men’s wear Eary is known for, was brightly colored, with a palette rooted in fluorescent orange and green.
Butterflies were the print motif, superimposed over hypersized KFC chickens — it shouldn’t have worked but it did. Floaty silk chiffon minidresses and cropped tops came with a lovely ostrich feather trim in neon green.
A red bias-cut slipdress that reached just above the ankles managed to be sexy and sophisticated, while the twist-front swimsuits had definite commercial appeal.
Of course, some preparations had been made. The collection had been finalized two weeks before: All the patterns had been made, and almost everything had been pre-cut for the 60-minute sew-a-thon.
There was a rawness to some looks that probably wasn’t intentional,

London Knit Label Loma Previews Spring Collection

LOMA’S KNITS BRANCH OUT: London knitwear label Loma, which is showing its spring 2016 collection at Coterie this weekend, already counts Nordstrom, Ron Herman and Neiman Marcus among its U.S. stockists, and will launch in Saks Fifth Avenue in October.
Now founder Lorna Masters, who started the label in 2012, plans to expand closer to her home turf. “When I started the range I was living in Australia and that’s why it resonated so well, especially in California, because the lifestyles are very similar,” said Masters, a Royal College of Art graduate who designed for Nicole Farhi and French Connection before starting her own label. “California is a great market for knitwear because they don’t wear coats.”
The label has recently launched at The Shop at Bluebird and Harvey Nichols in London, and Masters said that now the label plans to expand into the U.K. and Europe, having recently appointed a German sales agent, U. Schramm-Badenhop. She will also present the collection during Tranoi in Paris in October, and is considering a presentation in London.
The label is focused on fine cashmere knits, in what Masters called “architectural” shapes. “I’ve always liked the idea of a bohemian look but done in a very

London: Designer Inspirations, Spring 2016

LONDON — From Balkan gypsies and Balinese textiles to hot Havana and Seventies Honolulu, designers took inspiration from all around the globe.
 
Mary Katrantzou
“Balkan gypsies and the magical realism portrayed in Kusturica’s ‘Time of the Gypsies’ — a film that demonstrates the traditional Romani culture, but also explores the influence of Eighties pop culture and its ability to permeate even the most isolated of cultures. This collection explores the juxtaposition between tradition and imposing modernity, and the dialogue between them.”
 
Margaret Howell
“The color is crisp, the clothes are casual. A graphic simplicity of one color set against black or white. Swiss cotton shirting, opaque but fine and papery to the touch. Cool Irish linens from sheer to closely woven ‘linen denim.’ The waist is emphasized with oversize trousers secured with an English bridle leather belt. Skirts are shorter and also focus on the waist, with a gentle A-line silhouette. Refined but sporty, the clothes are teamed with athletic sandals and white canvas shoes for a youthful spirit.”
 
Julien Macdonald
“I have taken a journey through the incredible island of Bali. I have been inspired by the intricate Indonesian textiles and paintings and the breathtaking natural beauty. The collection is bold and graphic with opulent embellishments and

Genre: Science Fiction

Publish Date: July 18, 2014

Publisher: Frank Tayell

Seller: Frank Tayell


The outbreak began in New York. Soon it had spread to the rest of the world. People were attacked, infected, and they died. Then they came back. Nowhere is safe from the undead. As nations fell, as anarchy and civil war took grip across the globe, Britain was quarantined. The press was nationalised. The phone networks were blocked. Martial law, curfews, rationing, it wasn&apos;t enough. An evacuation was planned. Everyone had to leave the inland towns, cities and villages and head to one of the defensive enclaves being established around the coast.  Bill Wright broke his leg on the day of the outbreak. Unable to join the evacuation, he watched from his window as the streets filled with refugees, he watched as the streets emptied once more. He watched as they filled up again, this time with the undead. He is trapped. He is alone. He is running out of food and water. He knows that to reach the safety of the enclaves he will have to venture out into the wasteland that once was England. On that journey he will ultimately discover the horrific truth behind a decades old conspiracy.  This is the first volume of his journal. (74,000 words)

Cousin Of The Hope Diamond Up For Auction Later This Month In London

If you’ve got a quarter-million dollars lying around and a hankering to feel like a Gilded Age baron, have we got the gemstone for you.

The Hope Spinel, a 50.13-carat spinel gem once belonging to banker Henry Philip Hope, is up for auction later this month. Hope’s vast collection contained some 700 gems before his death in 1939, including the famous Hope Diamond, now at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

The spinel hasn’t been available for 98 years, and will be sold during the Bonhams London Fine Jewellery sale later this month for an estimated $ 240,000 to $ 310,000.

“You just don’t see pieces of this quality and provenance on the open market very often. It’s very exciting,” Emily Barber, a representative for Bonhams, said in a statement.

Spinels have similar refractive qualities to diamonds and garnets, according to the Gemological Institute of America, and they’re a fairly common occurrence in nature. Forbes noted that they’re often mistaken for rubies.

Barber said the Hope Spinel’s “exceptional transparency, flawless cut, beautiful color and large size” classify the stone as an “exceptional treasure of nature.”

Interested? Get to bidding on Sept. 24.

Julien Macdonald to Launch Men’s Line During London Fashion Week

MACDONALD’S MENSWEAR LINE: London designer Julien Macdonald — known for his high-octane women’s wear — is making his first foray into men’s wear. When the designer shows his spring women’s collection during London Fashion Week later this month, he will include a handful of men’s looks on the runway, too.
Macdonald said while he had “always been interested” in designing a men’s wear collection, “I’ve never really found the right time to do it.” However, he said he’d been hit with inspiration when designing his current women’s collection.
The men’s looks revolve around knitwear – a Macdonald signature – and prints. Designs include layered, weblike knit sweaters and pants, and printed T-shirts. Among his inspirations were a recent trip to Bali, and the region’s architecture and traveling culture, and the designer has worked with fabrics such as techno gabardine, Neoprene, cotton and silk knits and what Macdonald called “exciting print techniques.”
Macdonald is resolute about who he wants the collection to appeal to. “It isn’t [a] gentleman,” he said. “I’ve taken inspiration from my own clothes and things I’ve seen guys in London wearing, especially in the East End, the Shoreditch area of London where the most fashionable kids hang out. It’s almost like a unisex of

Trials of Artemis (Haberdashers Book One)

Sue London

Genre: Historical

Publish Date: December 16, 2014

Publisher: Sue London

Seller: Smashwords


The Haberdashers In 1805 three little girls decided to create a &quot;boys club&quot; because boys have more fun. Their childhood was filled with sword fighting, horse racing, and archery. Now in 1815 they are all grown up and expected to join Society. Who will marry such independent and deadly misses? Trials of Artemis (Regency, Hot) Loving Lord Lucifer… An independent bluestocking sneaks into a library to read rare Greek texts and ends up with a husband instead. Jacqueline &quot;Jack&quot; Walters loves archery and Greek military history. In her third season she has failed to inspire so much as one marriage proposal and is planning to settle into the quiet life of a spinster. Gideon Wolfe, Earl of Harrington, has been avoiding marriage but a case of mistaken identity in the library has left him saddled with an argumentative and unwilling fiancée. What readers are saying: &quot;I enjoyed seeing the relationship play out between the two main characters, especially since the author decided to makecthem both forthright and honest with each other, being able to pick up on emotional cues, instead of relying on misdirection and misinterpretation to lengthen the story, as is usually the case in this genre.&quot; &quot;Their characters and their relationship develop at an almost perfect pace as the book progresses (with bumps along the newlywed road, of course). If you like a strong female, this is the book for you.&quot;

Annette Worsley-Taylor, Former Creative Director of London Fashion Week, Dies at 71

LONDON — Annette Worsley-Taylor, a former creative director of London Fashion Week who helped reignite global interest in British fashion, died this week at the age of 71. The cause of her death was lung cancer, a British Fashion Council spokesman said.
Worsley-Taylor was a driving force in establishing London Fashion Week. After launching the New Wave exhibition at London’s Ritz Hotel in 1974, in order to introduce young British designers to the international market, she went on to found London Designer Collections in 1975. After establishing the collections, the executive went on to win funding from the British government’s Department of Trade and Industry, to support a newly formed British Fashion Council. After that, Worsley-Taylor established the London Designer Show in 1990, which the BFC called a “prototype” for London Fashion Week in its current form.
A combination of the seemingly scatty yet surprisingly steely, the tireless Worsley-Taylor was an integral part of the renaissance of London fashion in the early Eighties when the likes of BodyMap, Katharine Hamnett, Betty Jackson and, later, Rifat Özbek and John Galliano put the British capital back on the global fashion map as their shows became must-sees for international retailers. She remained a champion of

London: Churchill’s Tailor

2015-08-27-1440684310-3921218-P2.jpg

Winston Churchill had a very hard time holding onto money, throughout his life, yet he wore bespoke…well, everything. Henry Poole & Co. was not Churchill’s first bespoke tailor but it was his longest-lasting tailoring relationship. Henry Poole himself was long gone even by the time Churchill arrived, but Poole’s descendants continue to ply his elegant trade very close by to the family’s pioneering original location on Savile Row. I decided to pay them a visit.

I entered through the doors at Number 15 and waited. A very young Russian dandy was analyzing pocket square options (as near as I could decipher) in Russian with his girl friend. Their purchase finally made, the couple exited and the gentleman who had been attending to them, Sales Manager Anthony Rowland, pivoted to greet me.

I had a very cordial time working with the current Chairman of Poole & Co., Mr. Angus Cundey, putting together my book, CHURCHILL STYLE. Mr. Cundey was most forthcoming with facts and photos, including shots of Poole’s original, handwritten, account ledger pages for Winston Churchill going back to 1905. I could see those ledger books now spread out on a table in anticipation of my arrival. I gravitated to them.

“Mr. Cundey is here and expecting you,” Anthony Rowland informed me. “But he is engaged at the moment and, with apologies, asks that you wait.”

Gladly.

The ledger books make for great reading. Not only is the calligraphic script entrancing, Churchill’s life is spelled out in the margins. His wedding suit appears on the 1908 page. The ascendances (and descendances) of his career are all accounted for in the scrawled titles of his ever-shifting cabinet posts, as are his address changes, from his first bachelor flat at 105 Mount Street.

“He really was quite slim when we first got hold of him,” Anthony Rowland pointed out.

Churchill probably saw Mr. Cundey’s grandfather the first time he came in. We had over three hundred tailors back then, with fourteen cutters on the premises. If you can imagine, from the end of what is now Abercrombie & Fitch — which would have been the western branch of the Bank of England back then — Henry Poole occupied Numbers 36, 37, 38 and 39 along Savile Row. It was a massive enterprise and one big part of it was the livery department, where customers often spent far more outfitting their servants than they spent on themselves. The rest were workrooms and the showroom, which was a very grand, opulent place with pink marble columns and gilt ceilings.

I knew that Henry Poole, in 1848, had knocked down the stable block at the back of his 4 Burlington Street premises and built a new showroom fronting on Savile Row, where his rear staff entrance had been. He thus became Savile Row’s first tailoring establishment.

“The building next door was hit by an incendiary device during the Blitz,” Anthony Rowland now told me. “We had an oil drum on our roof that came alight. It ended up with the fire brigade hosing everything down. These ledgers were all tightly packed in the basement. The water found its way down there but the ledgers survived with just the outer parts damaged.”

“Henry Poole, when he took over from his father, James Poole, in 1846, threw out forty years-worth of ledgers,” Mr. Rowland laughed.

Lord knows whose names were in those! Louis Napoleon III was Henry’s first big royal customer; five years later, the Prince of Wales, soon to be Edward VII, came aboard. Both men became friends of Henry Poole’s. Henry was a masterful networker and marketer, for his day. He moved in all the right circles. That’s how we come to have forty different royal warrants from around the world; a world’s record, I believe. The couple I just had in here from Russia, I was showing them the royal warrants of Tsars Alexander II and III.

In 1961, Henry Poole & Co. was forced out of its venerable premises on Savile Row by the Westminster Council. “They basically took the property, compulsorily purchased it and tore down our grand showroom for a car park,” Mr. Rowland observed grimly.

We didn’t return to the Row for twenty years, until 1982, when Mr. Cundey brought us back. Unfortunately, Savile Row today is again changing very rapidly. Big businesses that can afford big rents are coming in and pushing out the bespoke showrooms. The Council doesn’t seem to care. They don’t seem to appreciate history or heritage. They will once it’s gone. Thankfully, we do still have the ledgers.

Henry Poole died in 1876. He left behind quite a mess; a morass of debts and a tangled will. His cousin Samuel Cundey had worked beside Henry for years. It was Cundey’s son, Howard, who rescued the business. Howard Cundey’s sons, Sam and Hugh, then navigated the company through the war, it’s aftermath, and the 1961 exile. Now Sam’s son, Angus, who brought Poole & Co. back to Savile Row, and Angus’s young son, Simon, maintain the present and point the way toward the future.

I looked up to see silver-haired, 78-year-old Angus Cundey approaching from the rear of the showroom, resplendent in a blue pinstripe suit.

“So, you want to talk about Winston Churchill,” he smiled, dropping down into a chair beside me.

Well, you know he first came to us in 1905, when he bought a vast quantity of clothes that we finally delivered to him in 1906. And that’s how it went for a very long time; quite large quantities. We made his overcoats, we made all sorts of elaborate court dress for him. The one garment that he particularly loved was the Trinity House uniform, which is today on display at Chartwell.

“I’ll tell you something sad,” Angus Cundey went on, after a moment.

Churchill’s orders with us went lower and lower following the Wall Street Crash. He must have gotten very depressed because he no longer came in to see us, he would summon a cutter down to Chartwell. And my father told me that the cutter always returned quite cross because Mr. Winston Churchill would keep him waiting for at least an hour. Then, to make matters worse, he stopped paying his bills. By 1937, he owed us about 160 pounds. This upset my father very much. Finally, in 1940, on the very day that Churchill became Prime Minister, our accounts clerk sent a bill to 10 Downing Street. That was a wicked thing to do. What happened to the accounts clerk, I can’t say, but to my father’s dying day, he rued the loss of Winston Churchill, who we’d clothed for the whole of his life. Sir Winston did eventually pay the bill, but he never came to see us again.

Anthony Rowland had brought out a strikingly familiar-looking grey pinstripe suit.

“This is a suit of Churchill’s that we still make today,” Angus Cundey beamed. “We call it our Churchill and it is a perfect copy of one we used to make for him. I’d say we’ve sold about a hundred of them over the years. This is the Churchill style.”

“In Churchill’s day, the suits were much heavier; made from an 18-ounce flannel,” Anthony Rowland added:

Whereas this one is really a 10. We’ve otherwise tried to maintain the identical marbled grey affect, with the same pinstripe going through it. It is a three button coat with a waistcoat. The blue lining is more our artistic license; it probably would have been grey for Churchill, maybe even a black. The trousers are cut for braces and there is a button fly. Zips didn’t really come in until after the war.

And how much does it cost, I asked, indiscreetly?

“About £3,515,” Angus Cundey answered. “Back in 1939, it probably cost the same in equivalent value. Still, I am the first to admit these are extravagant prices. But you must realize, a cutter makes every bit of it by hand, from the stitches to the button holes. And its all done right here.”

London Gallery to Mount Elizabeth Taylor Exhibition

GETTY’S GLAM GIRL: Getty Images Gallery will mount a retrospective on Elizabeth Taylor and her fight to stamp out HIV and AIDS. Staged in connection with the Elizabeth Taylor Trust and The Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation, “Grit and Glamour” is to commemorate Taylor’s 30-year involvement in raising awareness about the illness. “Grit and Glamour” will feature 50 photographs ranging from studio portraits and contact sheets to backstage images, behind-the-scenes imagery and unpublished photos of Taylor’s career and philanthropic work.
“The aim of the exhibition was to celebrate Ms. Taylor’s courageous work in raising awareness of HIV/AIDS when it was hardly spoken about, and the title reflects this,” said Getty Images Gallery curator Susanna Harrison. “We wanted the images to reflect her incredible spirit and determination, whilst at the same time showcasing her legendary beauty and rise to become one of Hollywood’s best-loved actresses. Images range from her days as a teenage star and attending her first gala events right up to establishing her AIDS foundation. They show her as a wife, mother and actress with both candid shots and classic portraits,” she told WWD.
The show is to run from Oct. 9 to Nov. 7 at Getty Images Gallery in London. It will then

Victoria and Albert Museum to Host Fashion Installations During London Design Festival

DESIGNS ON LONDON: The London Design Festival will have a distinct fashion flavor, with names including Swarovski, Selfridges and Kvadrat taking part in the September showcase.
Swarovski has teamed with designer Kim Thomé on an installation called “Zotem,” which is meant to be a fusion of “totem” and “zoetrope.” The 59-foot tall monolith was created with more than 600 bespoke Swarovski crystals and will stand at the entrance of the V&A Museum. The Swarovski crystals are presented in a gridlike pattern within a matte black aluminum frame.

“The only brief I was given was that I was to use Swarovski crystals and that it would be situated in the Grand Entrance of the V&A — which was enough for me to work with,” Thomé  told WWD. “As I had no preconceived idea of what I was going to do when I was first given some sample Swarovski crystals, the project was really led by what I learnt by experimenting with the crystals and exploring the how they could be experienced differently.”
He said the inspiration behind Zotem was a response to the interior architecture of the V&A’s Grand Entrance. “I wanted to create a site-specific installation that would entice

London Fashion Industry Favorite, Kids Company Charity, Set to Close

END OF AN ERA: Kids Company, the London charity that has long been a favorite of many a British fashion label, is set to close its doors on Wednesday after months of turmoil and the resignation of its chief executive officer Camila Batmanghelidjh, who founded the charity in 1996. The charity, whose aim was to help vulnerable, inner-city children, is closing over claims of financial mismanagement.
Labels including Fendi, Stella McCartney, Mulberry, Folli Follie and Matthew Williamson have all hosted events or collaborated with Kids Company in the past. Last year, Fendi organized an auction of its Peekaboo bags, designed by celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jerry Hall and Cara Delevingne, in aid of Kids Company. The event marked the opening of Fendi’s New Bond Street store.

Sonia Rykiel Brings Pop-up Concept to London

STUDY GROUP: After Paris and Tokyo, Sonia Rykiel is bringing its new store concept to London. Its boutique on Brook Street is to reopen on July 25 after being refitted as a pop-up cafe-cum-library featuring 15,000 vintage tomes.
The concept, developed by Sonia Rykiel artistic director Julie de Libran with André Saraiva and art director Thomas Lenthal, was first unveiled in the brand’s store in the Paris neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés for its fall show in March. The store in the Aoyama neighborhood in Tokyo was similarly revamped in April.
Open since 2002, the 2,700-square-foot London store will feature a carpet designed by Saraiva, in addition to a lacquered red ceiling and walls. In addition to the books, it will display a selection of vintage vinyl records by French singers from the Sixties and Seventies, including Serge Gainsbourg and Françoise Hardy.
The space will be dotted with Seventies sofas and armchairs, while the patio will take on the look of a literary café with chairs and tables.
The store will sell an exclusive version of the best-selling Domino bag. Made of khaki crocodile leather, it will retail for 13,695 pounds, or around $ 21,300 at current exchange.

Stolen from his master and sold for a quick profit, Buck is shipped up to the Arctic to live among the hardened ranks of the sled dogs, led by the short-tempered and violent alpha Spitz. Fighting to survive against an unforgiving climate and pack rivalries, Buck slowly leaves his domesticated life behind and embraces the wild.
