E. Tautz, the nostalgic yet oh so current menswear label designed by Patrick Grant, has coincided the arrival of its Autumn/Winter 2016 collection with ‘COASTERS’, a specially commissioned series of paintings by Indonesian illustrator Ferry Gouw, best known for his work with Major Lazer. The highly stylised, abstract works show figures gliding on roller skates, sporting the loosely cut, ‘80s style tailoring of the new collection – both references to Grant’s upbringing in Edinburgh where he would go to roller discos.

First Look:  Lou Dalton AW16  As Worn By Russell Tovey

First Look:
Lou Dalton AW16
As Worn By Russell Tovey

For AW16, Dalton looked to her ‘home away from home’, Shetland, and it’s traditional workwear. The collection can now be seen worn by Dalton’s close friend, the actor Russel Tovey. A recent UK export to the American TV landscape (most recently, Tovey reprised his role in HBO’s drama Looking), the actor models woollen checks, padded in a nod to the gilets worn by sailors on the North Sea. Our favourite is the knitwear, for which Dalton collaborated with John Smedley. There are thin merino-wool sweaters in coloured dyes and a fuzzy mohair knit that’s sure to keep the cold at bay come winter.

Getting to Know 80s Icon and Blitz Kid Marilyn

As one of the most photographed Blitz Kids of his generation, Marilyn (né Peter Robinson) was a fixture on London’s underground club scene long before he released a record. He modelled his look on Marilyn Monroe, riffing off the classic bombshell look at first (“it used to take me at least two hours to get ready just to buy a bottle of milk!”) then later adopting a less contrived style with long blonde dreadlocks and a gender-fluid wardrobe that veered from exquisite Antony Price gowns to crop tops and chinos.

Volcom’s newest campaign is a dreamy, fun filled escape into the unknown which is exactly what you see when watching the video. The clothes are perfectly suited for the band – young, wild and free which is a statement the girls live by with their musical careers.

After 25 years working in the industry for the likes of Michael Kors, Céline, Escada and Wolford, Dutch designer Ronald Van der Kemp is a rogue one; he doesn’t create seasonal collections but rather “wardrobes.” His demi-couture label RVDK showed it’s fourth wardrobe at Paris Couture Week, and the one of a kind pieces are available to wear now – but you need to move fast because once they’re gone, there is no recreating them!

What To Do After The Games Close

Between the synchronised swim routines and the gymnastics at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, attendees are exploring Rio de Janeiro and all it has to offer – soaking up the sun at Ipenama Beach, taking selfies with Christ the Redeemer or having a real taste of Brazil at Confeiteria Columbo. And don’t forget, Rio de Janeiro is still there after the Rio 2016 Olympic Games are over. We also hope the Olympic athletes won’t leave Brazil too soon after the Closing Ceremony; we’re all hoping Usain Bolt will race up the Corcovado mountain and take a selfie with Brazil’s statue of Christ too!
