editor’s letter

At the closing night party for Kim Jones’ triumphant last show for Louis Vuitton, I bumped into the brilliant emerging young menswear designer, Charles Jeffrey. We got to talking about Charles’ hometown of Glasgow. The conversation took on the misty hues of two people talking about a city they both love.An idea grew for Charlie to shoot a story us, a travelogue back to the teenager he once was through the eyes of the man he now is, in the city that oversaw that transition (I’ll Be Your Mirror, page 172). See if you can spot Charlie’s mum in there, one of several heartfelt moments that punctuate the narrative. For reasons too numerous and too personal to divulge in this short space, I love Glasgow too. In Charlie’s story, I…

It takes a lot of balls to walk out of Central Saint Martins on the eve of graduation, but that’s what Alan Crocetti did. ‘I was studying womenswear and I decided I would make everything for my final collection. Accessories, clothes and jewellery. I was late for my final crit so they said I couldn’t be part of the fashion show, so I told them I didn’t need a piece of paper and I left.’ Is he fiery generally? ‘Er, yep.’ Very? ‘Let’s say, um, mildly.’Born in Belo Horizonte, the sixth biggest city in Brazil, the 33-year-old moved to London, via Italy, 11 years ago. ‘I’d been studying at home but my parents went bankrupt and it didn’t seem right to continue.’ So he moved here, started at Saint Martins,…

fit, fresh and farah

Working out, looking after yourself, shredding, getting swole – it’s never been more on-trend. If you’re not going running in the park, hanging out by the pull-up bars, or playing tennis after work… what’s wrong with you?!

It’s lightweight, quick-drying and breathable. It’s youthful and stylish and authentically British. And it makes you look well fit.Hit the SlopesItalian twins Marco and Stefano Schiavon were born in Rivoli in 1983; now, working together as illustrators Van Orton Design, they’ve transformed their shared childhood love of Eighties pop culture into a booming career.

f is for…

Meme accounts have changed how we experience fashion (and politics, and reality, and everything around us) and their cut-and-paste, tongue-in-cheek, to-hell-with-copyright aesthetic has also greatly influenced fashion design itself – as can be seen in Vetements’ mash-up Frankenstein approach, Gucci’s bootleg T-shirts, Diesel’s knockoff pop-up store during New York Fashion Week, Off-White’s deadpan use of words and so much else besides. Fendi, however, has taken things a step further by hiring a real-life meme-weaver, Hey Reilly, to design artworks and prints for its free-associating AW18 menswear collection. If you’ve been wondering where the ‘FFANCY’ upside-down elephants floating above ripe strawberries or the ‘FFAITHFUL’ horses standing on wedges of Swiss cheese came from, well, now you know. Aside from the aforementioned photo-montages and wordplay, Reilly – his name’s Reilly, not Hey…
