TIME TO SAVE THE WORLD AGAIN? – The wristwatches of James Bond

September 7, 2015

6

Omega recently announced the release of their new Spectre Seamaster 300m – which follows up on the Seamaster Aqua Terra that was announced earlier in the year – both of which will adorn Daniel Craig’s wrist in the upcoming James Bond film, SPECTRE. Interestingly, both the Aqua Terra and the Spectre Seamaster have a decidedly retro […]

READY FOR ACTION – Anthony Sinclair unveil their first ready-to-wear Conduit Cut suit

May 7, 2015

0

We’ve all dreamed of being Bond. Admit it, you’ve done the gunbarrel in the mirror and uttered the immortal line in your best Sean Connery accent. Sadly, for many of us, the thrill of the adventure, the exotic locations, the fast cars and beautiful women are all tantalizingly out of reach, forever consigned to fantasy. […]

January 26, 2015

0

British watch manufacturer Bremont might not be the best known brand to those who move outside of the somewhat cliquey horological circles, but it has been steadily making a name for itself over the last twelve years or so by making solid, durable pilot watches for adventurers, military aviators, as well for as the occasional […]

Kingsman: The Secret Service has managed to pull off a film merchandising first by teaming with online luxury menswear retailer Mr. Porter to create the Kingsman Collection, comprising of suiting, clothing, and accessories, as used in the actual film. I was fortunate enough to get a chance to visit the Kingsman Collection pop up store […]

TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY – Kingsman: The Secret Service

January 17, 2015

2

After having its name changed from simply The Secret Service, and the release date of the film moved from October of 2014, Kingsman: The Secret Service finally premiered at London’s Leicester Square on Wednesday.     Due to these changes, there has been an almost palpable sense of anticipation for the film. However, keeping the […]

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE – A Closer Look At The Coolest Spy Film Of 2015

January 16, 2015

As a huge fan of British spy films and television, it’s delightful to see a film released that so embraces the genre. Kingsman: The Secret Service is a spy film packed with irreverent homage to the spy films of the past, but – like the Savile Row suiting in the films – has taken the […]

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

January 8, 2014

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 […]

Mulberry: The Book – Mulberry celebrate 40 years of luxury and style.

May 8, 2011

Over the last few years, Mulberry has established itself as a quirky, yet quintessentially English luxury brand. It has managed to be seen as flirty, feminine and fun, whilst at the same time, practical, elegant and chic; appealing to both those with a developed taste, as well as the younger, edgier trendsetters. This delicate balancing […]

The James Bond Lifestyle – James Bond’s apartment.

March 8, 2011

10

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 […]

London Fashion Week – Mulberry Show A/W 2011

February 22, 2011

So, it’s London Fashion Week once again and one of my favourite shows is always Mulberry. Their shows are always cute, quirky and fun and somehow manage to be more down to Earth and less pretentious than many of the other shows. The A/W2011 show, held at Claridges’ stunning ballroom, was no exception. Backstage was […]
