Our big news this week is, of course, our own new short film – The Guv’nor goes Hip Hop in Death To Fashion. Click below to see the whole thing…



Great piece in The Huffington Post that manages to find an unusual angle on Mad Men away from the “aren’t the suits nice” photo spreads – Susan Michals compares the wit and wisdom of MM’s Roger Sterling with that of Downton Abbey’s Dowager Countess, Lady Violet Grantham…

“Perhaps the person we miss most though at the moment, is that purveyor of bon mots, the woman with a heart of gold and a barbed tongue, the Dowager Countess, Lady Violet Grantham (Dame Maggie Smith). And while he’s no Dowager in any way, shape or form, Roger Sterling (John “Lincoln Mercury” Slattery) has a lot in common with Lady Grantham: They are both the providers of the sharpest and wittiest remarks on their respective shows, not to mention never ending founts of comic relief. He’s every inch of chauvinist, and let’s face it, she’s certainly no feminist.”

Inspired stuff. Read the full piece HERE.

The ever-changing face of 21st Century Savile Row continues to make news…

“Mark Henderson is chairman at Savile Row Bespoke Association, a group of 14 companies formed to protect the art of hand-craft tailoring on the street where Prince William, David Cameron and David Beckham shop today, and Lord Nelson and Sir Winston Churchill bought their suits in the past.

‘We would like the street to be the home of fantastic quality, luxury menswear,” he said. “A fashion store is not particularly welcome as it does not fit in to what Savile Row, including its heritage and history, is about.’”

Quite so.

Odd to celebrate an 87th anniversary, we suppose, but that’s what their doing in the UAE newspaper The National with a piece on style in Coppola’s film of  F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby

“[Ralph] Lauren captured the Gatsby of my teenage imagination, when I first picked up the book in high school and formed a precise image of the character in my head. After all, Gatsby ‘always looks so cool’, the character Daisy says.”
