Fashion and Fame

The Fashion and Textile Museum presents the work of Justin de Villeneuve; a high profile photographer throughout the 60s and 70s who started his career as manager to model and Mod icon 'Twiggy' at the height of her career. Creating some of the most well-known images of the era, Justin shot the portrait of Twiggy and David Bowie in Paris that would later become the iconic cover to the artist's album 'Pin-Ups'.

Fred Perry X Stussy Deluxe

Soon to launch is perhaps our most eagerly anticipated blank canvas collaboration of the season: Fred Perry x Stussy Deluxe. Taking inspiration from both British and 1970s American sports heritage and design, the collection features limited edition apparel, accessories and footwear all created in a simple palette of white, blood red and black.

For the campaign shoot we chose one of our favourite venues as a location: the 100 Club on Oxford Street, which perfectly complements both Fred Perry and Stussy's unique relationships with both sport and underground subcultures.

There's been a great reaction from some of our favourite bloggers to the collection, with previews featured on Hypebeast, The Daily Street and High Snobiety to name but a few.

The 2011 Fred Perry x Stussy Deluxe blank canvas collection launches in shops and online from Monday 18th April, with footwear available exclusively in Laurel Wreath shops until 23rd May 2011.

Park Life

As temperatures begin to rise and real spring weather starts to make more than a fleeting appearance, parks and outdoor spaces are beginning to look all the more appealing. It’s only a matter of time before Frisbees are thrown, barbeques lit and blankets laid in the grand tradition of British park life.

Blur's 1994 hit 'Park Life' - © EMI Music

Whilst it’s not entirely clear whether Blur’s 1994 hit was intended as a homage to our summers spent on the grass; the song has become somewhat of an anthem for revelers across the country. Quadrophenia’s Phil Daniels narrates the chorus in his inimitable cockney slur, whilst Blur sing the chorus – now synonymous with days spent outdoors without a care in the world.
