Rubber Soul - by Nick Wakeman

Rubber Soul - by Nick Wakeman

 

For me, factory visits almost always kickstart the imagination. It's the so-called 'back end' of the industry that interests me, rather than the catwalks of Paris – I've had some of my best ideas under blaring strip lights, walking amongst the tinnitus inducing chorus of hundreds of sewing machines. Sometimes I think the nature of how things are made is almost as important as the finished product, which is why I felt compelled to photograph the inner workings of the Moonstar plant, which was a haven of brilliance, pride and calm.

Golden Brown – Michael Gannon captures The Streets of South America

Golden Brown – Michael Gannon captures The Streets of South America

 

Now I'm a lifelong lover of brown and beige in all their badass forms, be it wicker chairs, Ronseal varnish, chocolate, unbleached linen, cork tiles or the perfect crispy trench coat. So, when I stumbled across his work a few years ago on Instagram, it only took a quick scroll to confirm this guy had nailed all my favourite hues in his candid snaps of strangers on the streets of Buenos Aires.

Shirts & Swashbuckling - Raven Smith on his journey to Cairo

Shirts & Swashbuckling - Raven Smith on his journey to Cairo

To traverse the wonders of Egypt, a travel uniform is a necessity. You need a physical fortification from the charmed assault of Cairo. A flat shoe, sure, but a shirt that’s ever-ready for what the city has in store and grips your ribs as the winds whip up from the Sahara. Rolling dunes. A camel.

Subterranean Views - The Networks beneath our Feet

Subterranean Views - The Networks beneath our Feet

One day a couple of years ago I was walking back to my home in London. I remember glancing down, locking eyes on a manhole cover. It was circular, smaller than most others and had a surprising graphic simplicity. In the middle it read “SE5” and around the edge, “YOU BEAUTY”.

Yves Klein - Blue’s Best Known Trailblazer

Yves Klein - Blue’s Best Known Trailblazer

Of all the hues in the colour wheel, there’s something eternally enticing about blue - each shade conveys a slightly different message. Our trusted navy, a staple in everyday closets, is understated and has enduring appeal; a true midnight navy shade is so dark it’s almost black. In contrast, cotton chambray in shades of light blue tend to feel fresh and springlike. But what about that brilliant hue of bright blue, the one that French artist Yves Klein fell in love with? That’s something else.

Pants That Prove a Point

Pants That Prove a Point

Running vertically, a crease adds sharpness and sophistication. It has the power to transform and elevate even the simplest pair of trousers into something more substantial, more serious, more refined. This simple line tells the world you mean business.

Uniform Commitment and High School Classics

Uniform Commitment and High School Classics

The Vans sneaker wearing teenage tearaway spends most of his time looking at jazz mags, skipping school or joyriding, but don’t let that put you off. Just like Reeves, he manages to stay close to the slacker vibe uniform, with long-sleeved jersey crewnecks, layered under polo shirts or tunics, all topped off with baggy pants and a beanie. Maybe it's all in the hair? I've always had a soft spot for pony-tailed ravers, or blokes who are still rocking that laissez-faire attitude to male grooming.

Men's Series - Jeremie Cometto, The Restaurateur

Like most stories, you fall into it by accident or necessity, you fall in love with it, you learn the trade, you work every position within the industry, you advance through senior roles and then... well, then you take the leap. It takes 20 years to get there but I feel I opened my first restaurant at the right time. Not too early, not too late.

Men's Series - John Pawson, The Architectural Designer.

Men's Series - John Pawson, The Architectural Designer.

When I first emailed JP (as he likes to sign off, now with the addition of CBE at the end) back in the autumn, I quickly understood that he was every bit as unexpected and refreshing as his body of work. The studio was a minimalist dream, with a concrete staircase, a neat library of books and shelves full of materials in light, muted tones. But when John arrived for a chat and photos, coffee in hand, he wasn’t quite as I expected – he likes to have no structure to his day, he’s into trainers (day wear and gym) and listens to Frank Ocean. Intriguing."
