the editor’s letter

There are many reasons why I love films. Yes, they can be thrilling or entertaining, or just a chance to zone out, but at their best, they offer a rare insight into another person’s creative vision, a chance to see the world through someone else’s eyes. That, and the fact I’m quite partial to a choc-top. Snacks aside, if I had to put my finger on just one thing that has fuelled my love of cinema, a single reason why I’ve learned to not just watch movies but to truly appreciate them, it wouldn’t be hard to pick: Brad Pitt. I’ve never been a big on-screen violence guy, but when Fight Club and Snatch arrived within a year of one another, I was sold. They cemented Pitt as an actor whose…

Strawberry season The one time of the year in which the sun shines on the UK – Wimbledon is here. We’ve got you covered with not only everything big that happens at the grandest Grand Slam of them all, but all the on-court style we’re digging the most. STICKY WICKETS It could prove to be a mighty fine month on Britain’s sporting calendar. Aside from Wimbles, we’ll also be keeping tabs as one of the most hotly anticipated Ashes series in years descends on the UK. ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD Away from the sporting arena, it’s all about one movie. Tarantino is back, and he’s putting Leo and Brad Pitt together on screen for the first time. We’ll bring you the full breakdown – frame by frame if we have to. VENICE FILM FESTIVAL An…

DRY JULY To help you get through the longest month of the year, our round-up of the top five non-alcoholic beers shines light into the breweries breathing life into one of food and drink’s most depressing concepts. THE AEGEAN There’s more to the glittering Greek islands than day clubs and white-roofed buildings. We took it upon ourselves to bring you the best places for your winter vacay that aren’t Mykonos. ROAD TESTS Not a day goes by that we don’t get an email about some kooky new health trend to try out, from LeBronapproved recovery boots to overnight pimple pads. Our solution?

just splendid

It’s not his first rodeo, but this year’s Splendour in the Grass will mark Stone’s first time playing the Byron festival with Dope Lemon. “There will be six of us playing, and some backup dancers,” says Stone, hinting at a “pretty big production”. He’s even bought a ’70s Cadillac limousine to commemorate the occasion. “I think it seats eight people, it’s fucking cool. It’s all blue velvet. There’s a table with crystal glasses and Champagne inside,” he says. Sounds like it’ll be quite the entrance. July 19–21; splendourinthe grass.com…

virgil abloh is expanding his vocabulary

To those not familiar with the design inclinations of Virgil Abloh, the word ‘wearable’ might seem like a peculiar adjective to use when describing the artistic director’s Fall Winter ’19 Precollection for LV Men’s. There are elbow-length gloves that look like the type you might call upon when faced with an unpleasant chemical reaction. There are big, floppy top hats, and knee-length anoraks that wrap the wearer’s body like a sheath. But to take this Precollection – the first of its kind for Abloh since being installed at Louis Vuitton – on face value would be to do Mr Abloh’s profound meticulousness a disservice; it is the collection’s least literal elements that quantify its standing as a dissertation on wearability. “It was a matter of my call and response to: what is…

return of the shirt

“Nobody really cares about shirts,” says new CEO of PINK Christopher Zanardi-Landi. “But shirts are worn every day so you should care about it.” The man has a point. And naturally, having been enlisted to revive English shirting authority Thomas Pink, Zanardi-Landi also has a comprehensive list of what to look for in a good shirt. We could walk you through it, but he does a much better job. FEELS “We use very high quality fabric, what’s known as 100/2’s. I could explain it but it would take me hours,” says Zanardi-Landi with a laugh. One thing to know? The weight of the fabric doesn’t make it a better shirt. “If it’s a business shirt, don’t go over 100 thread count.” Noted. STRENGTH “The gusset reinforces the weakest part of the shirt,” says Zanardi-Landi,…
