To celebrate the release, the Nectarine No.9 are making a very special, one-off live appearance at The Lexington on Saturday the 12th of December, where they’ll be performing the album in full.

Are we killing our grandchildren by buying that leather jacket?

Bookmark and Share

Burgeoning in the cities of Scotland we can see the growth of business hubs that nurture small companies and the buzz that it is creating. Fashion and retail is playing a part; the beauty, textile, fashion and jewellery designers are all seeing an upturn in their trade because we are seeing the value in "shop local", the value of investing in artisan or hand-made by our friends or people we know. Supporting a community approach to the clothing you buy.
But what of the big High Street stores? GAP, Zara, H&M, Primark..., will they react? Will they realise the benefit of taking a more holistic approach to business, or will they always bow down to share holder pressure, to improving on next quarters figures? Will there ever be a more balanced approach? Or should we / they embrace the capitalists we are, chase the mighty $buck, squeeze the margins, sod the wee guy, aim for the yacht in Monaco, let our kids worry about the planet that we are slowly killing...

Candy for Cuties - Future Fashion

Bookmark and Share

What is your vision for fashion? The images above are from 1939. Are we returning to an age when we invest in a really good piece and only purchase a new one when there's a special event or to replace a staple? In 1939 (short film below) they took a guess at what fashion would be like in 2000 - miles away? Or not far off?

1939's predictions of how they thought clothing will look like in today's age. #notsoclose

Margiela and Galliano AW15

You'd heard of Maison Margiela before... right?

Renzo Rosso, President of the OTB Group (owner of Margiela, along with: Diesel, Marni Viktor & Rolf...) appointed John Galliano as the Creative Director not long after... that incident (October 2014).

Two things stand out in the appearance of Margiela in London - this is a Women's Wear collection showing on the last day of the Mens Collections - getting ahead of the competition to show, why?

1. Is he worried where his influences have come from, will we see it in other places and he can claim first past the post?

2. And why London? The PR machine states he's getting back to his routes from his student days here. It was an exclusive invitation list and a very particular group of journalists, who was he avoiding?

A big departure from last season for Margiela - although the man himself (Martin Margiela) is no longer associated with the brand he was quite the "Enfant Terrible" (use a heavy French accent). Very into deconstruction, seams on the outside an "avantgardist" if you like in the 1980's.

Aside from the fluff surrounding Galliano's appearance for Margiela, what did you think of the actual collection?
