LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN – The English Gentleman at The Cabinet War Rooms

January 8, 2014

3

During the tense days and nights of Second World War, Prime Minister Winston Churchill led the British war effort from the Cabinet War Rooms, a secure and secret bunker beneath the government offices, just off Horse Guard’s Road in London. An underground maze of rooms and offices, the Cabinet War Rooms were a source of […]

THE BMW i3 – The Electric Car With Plenty of Spark

November 27, 2013

The electric car. Something about it conjures up images of late Seventies science fiction in which we would all be eating protein pills, communicating via our walkie-talkie wrist watches, and lounging around in our silver onesies. Whilst this rather optimistic view of our future seems somewhat quaint today, the truth is that many of the […]

When it comes to the production design on the James Bond films, we’ve been truly spoilt. No other film series can truly claim the lavish and inventive sets associated with the Bond films. We’ve seen hollowed-out volcanoes transformed into rocket bases. We’ve seen supertankers transform into a submarine pen. We’ve seen the towers of gold bars […]

Mention a holiday in  the South of Spain and many of us would be forgiven for getting images of the beaches of the Costa Del Sol, crammed to capacity with sweaty, lobster-pink Brits. Not particularly my cup of tea, but if that’s your idea of a holiday, then more power to you. However, for those […]
