Paul Weller, Wake Up The Nation

Paul Weller, Wake Up The Nation

Paul Weller has sent Sir Paul Smith an advanced copy of his new album. The former Jam front man is wel known as a Paul Smith fan.

Paul Weller releases his tenth studio solo album Wake Up the Nation in the United States on May 4th via long-time label Yep Roc Records.

After an unparalleled career, characterized by constant musical experimentation, we should be used to Paul Weller’s relentless desire to chop and change his sound. But after the triumphant, Brit Award-bagging success of 22 Dreams (his third solo number one in the UK), Wake Up The Nation sees one of rock’s most iconic songwriters expand and evolve once more.

A departure stylistically from last year’s more pastoral 22 Dreams, Wake Up is lean, mean and as uncompromisingly focused as it’s maker, Wake Up the Nation also brings Paul Weller full circle: twenty-eight years on from The Jam’s split, two tracks feature the former bassist Bruce Foxton. The album also sees contributions from My Bloody Valentine’s Kevin Shields, The Move’s Bev Bevan and legendary session drummer Clem Cattini.

With passion, progression, and as ever, spine-tingling rock n roll-Paul Weller has delivered the perfect soundtrack to a new decade.

RMC Hooded Scarf

RMC Hooded Scarf

After releasing the RMC MKWS Neck Warmer, here is the new RMC MKWS Hood and Scarf. Made with fleece, it comes with wave patterns printed in the inner part. It functions both as a hoodie and a scarf for the neck, and even without putting on the hood, it’ll look like you are wearing a hoodie under your jacket. It comes in 10 colors for easy matching.

Galliano Groupie Clothes Autumn 2010

Galliano Groupie Clothes Autumn 2010

A new line, and new generation, Galliano Groupie gets even more style options as this season ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ is remixed with the modern day, and transported to the London ‘It kids’ scene to create more of a ‘Party at Hanging Rock ‘n’ Roll’, to launch the introduction of the men’s collection to the Ittierre SpA produced young line.

Commenting on his reason to launch a new young men’s line in collaboration with Ittierre SpA, Galliano said, “It’s not just the girl’s that want to party, and be able to pepper their wardrobe with urban essentials, the boys want this option too.”

“They [the boys] would like to have those pieces in denim, leather and something that has that quirky signature Galliano identity. They want high fashion but not the high fashion prices, so I wanted to create a collection that could inspire as much as bridge that gap,” Galliano added.

For Galliano Groupie’s debut collection, John Galliano was inspired by memories of his 20-year old self who was fashion-obsessed yet starved of the choice in clothes.

“We used to take our vintage market finds and pull them apart and recombine them to create our own mixed-up signature looks. Creativity and expression was the force behind this way of dressing, and we have re-harnessed this energy to work the collection in an individual way and dress our contemporary young man,” John Galliano related.

Naming the collection, “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” Galliano Groupie proposes distressed jeans are over-dyed in bold colours of ochre and burgundy, and doused with bleach in curling barbwire designs

Military parkas are worn with baggy pants, grandfather shirts and layered with vintage Henleys and blazers too scruffy to impress the parents.

Looks are crumpled and carefree, and deceptively inventive with overprinted graphics, comfortable easy shapes, washed leathers, sweats and denims that make it look like you haven’t tried too hard. Distressed denim and sweat is spliced into new mixes of mixed collaged clothes.

“Galliano’s second line is a younger rebel sibling not an afterthought,” said the designer. And his fashion advice season – “Make sure you get to know this new [Galliano Groupie] character and collection.”

Galliano Groupie will be available in Autumn 2010.

Versace restructuring approved

Versace restructuring approved

The board of Gianni Versace SpA on Monday said it had approved a restructuring plan drawn up by an outside consulting firm for the Italian fashion house.

The move effectively sidelines Versace’s chief executive, Giancarlo Di Risio, who is expected to step down over the next few days. Mr. Di Risio wasn’t involved in drawing up the plan by the consulting firm Bain & Co., according to a person familiar with the matter.

The board, which includes designer Donatella Versace and her brother Santo Versace, said the plan aimed to help the fashion house navigate the global economic crisis that has sapped luxury sales world-wide. The statement didn’t provide any detail on the nature of the restructuring plan.

Mr. Di Risio, who attended the board meeting on Monday, is expected to leave the company in the coming days after clashing with Ms. Versace over company strategy, according to people familiar with the matter. Last week The Wall Street Journal reported that Mr. Di Risio was expected to step down.

Versace tapped Bain & Co. to craft a new strategy for the fashion house two months ago as tensions between the designer and Mr. Di Risio rose, the people said. Amid falling profits, Mr. Di Risio has pushed Ms. Versace to simplify her designs, so that the house could introduce new accessories and clothes with lower prices, according to one person familiar with the matter. The two have also disagreed over how to cut costs at the fashion house, the person said.

In its statement Monday, however, the board denied that there has been recent “friction” between Mr. Di Risio and Ms. Versace. The statement didn’t address whether Mr. Di Risio would remain at the company.

Ms. Versace designer holds a 20% stake in the firm and is backed by her daughter Allegra Versace Beck, who owns 50% of the fashion house. Santo Versace holds a 30% stake in the label.

Phil Goss & Ijin always insist on one thing ”every denim item does its duty”.Okay , so Admiral Horatio Nelson said something similar in 1805 at the onset of the Battle of Trafalgar , but one element remains clear here , to do things well we have to perform at our utmost best.

Denim is a beautiful cloth.We know this.And jeans are a religion. We know this too. But what makes jeans even more beautiful are the sum of it’s components & the jeansmaking recipe you cook up. One major factor applied in the indigo kitchen is the industrial jewellry you dress denim with. And we are talking about nailing cloths together here. In the Ijin handcrafting workshop we insist that ”nailing” the denim is as important as sewing it.

Here we see the customized Ijin copper rivet nails in all their resplendent ”red” beauty.


They will discolour & tarnish when worn, but at source they look like red gold. No ordinary ”pin” , these are double standard solid cast ,real copper nails ( not alloy or dipped ) & they will break the thicknesses of denim at stress points to such an extent that tufts of cloth are pushed out of the top cap.To the untrained eye this is unnoticeable, but to the connossieur this is a pedigree second to nothing else that we are talking premium item.

Using a grey-blue selvedge cloth adds authenticity to heritage denim Ijin pieces, but not before choosing an un-singed or ”hairy” denim , which is semi-finished rather than flat finished & leaves a fledgling flannel effect on the surface.

This leave absolutely no doubts that your are holding denim with a duty to uphold the standard…

Jean Paul Gaultier gets tough with a mix of boxing butchness, athletes jumping rope and audio archives of the fights of Mohammed Ali in the soundtrack, models paraded perfectly tailored suits and jackets, even hooded coats.

Trousers are either slouchy or slim fitting enough to define muscles. Overall unmistakable Gaultier.

Zinedine Zidane x Yohji Yamamoto

Zinedine Zidane x Yohji Yamamoto

French soccer icon Zinedine Zidane and Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto have joined forces for an ad campaign in the run-up to this summer’s World Cup – and it turns out the two have more in common than meets the eye. “He doesn’t talk a lot, and that’s just fine,” the famously taciturn Zidane said at a Paris presentation for Y-3, the collaboration between Yamamoto and athletic brand Adidas.

Set to break in March in magazines including V and V Man, the ads depict Yamamoto as coach to Zidane’s team. The player, however, was reluctant to take on the mantle of fashion guru. “If I have any advice to give, it’s on the soccer front,” he said.

Diesel 2010 “Be Stupid” Campaign

Diesel 2010

Fashion brand Diesel is starting the new year all fresh with the appointment of its new artistic director. French publisher and founder of trend magazine WAD, Bruno Collin will be responsible for the art direction of the Diesel line. Also a former editor in chief France of Sportswear International, a communication expert and a familiar figure on the Paris nightlife scene, Bruno is appointed to ensure that Diesel continues to be one of the world’s most innovative brands.

Diesel 2010

“More than ever, I want Diesel to express its DNA in the most up-to-date and innovative ways,” says Renzo Rosso, President and founder. “The world of fashion has radically changed therefore also the creative process has to follow. I believe in the idea of combining a wide variety of different creative talents: stylists, designers, photographers, graphic designers, and artists. This is only the beginning of a revolution that will transform the creative team and the brand’s design process. I’ve been following Bruno for a long time and I believe his work, his ideas, his know-how and taste are a perfect fit for Diesel. Innovative brands should be managed like magazines – a strong, unique identity with constant external input and collaborations that suit the project at hand.”

Diesel 2010

For 2010, the new Diesel brand communication ‘Be Stupid’ will launch. It will start in Berlin and travel across the world from February onwards with activities of traditional and alternative media, in-store actions and guerrilla stunts bringing the campaign’s manifesto and philosophy to life. With ‘Being stupid’ Diesel communicates more than a traditional advertising campaign, and wants to celebrate Diesel’s brave and edgy spirit.

Diesel will showcase all its lines at Bread & Butter in Berlin with a show and event on the night of January 20th. The booth at the fair will also premiere the new shop-in-shop concept that will progressively change the face at retail of Diesel in key department stores and multibrand environments worldwide. Creatively, Diesel will separate its higher end line Diesel Black Gold, and during New York Fashion Week, the brand will present its first women’s collection designed by Greek designer Sophia Kokosalaki.

True Tiger & Ctrl.Alt.Shift in Partnership with SOME Night for special charity event in aid of Haiti

Date: Wednesday, 20th January
Price: Minimum donation on the door £5
Location: The Den & Centro, 18 West Central St, London WC1A 1JJ

SOMEnight, London’s premier weekly dance music event is opening its doors and decks to the cream of both the U’s urban and dance music scenes in a bid to raise money for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti. Having partnered with Ctrl.Alt.Shift, a charity who use popular culture to take global action, and esteemed production outfit True Tiger, some of the biggest names in the business have agreed to waiver their fee’s to appear at the event, with the confirmed line-up a cross section of the UK’s talent spanning multiple genres.

Stanza, of True Tiger explains: “We’ve literally pulled this together in three days. I got on the phone to Jack, the head of Vagabondz promotions at SOMEnight and Chantelle Fiddy, editor of Ctrl.Alt.Shift, about joining forces. We want to ensure our money gets to those who need it the most and Ctrl.Alt.Shift’s partners on the ground in Haiti will do just that. The response from everyone involved has been amazing and people have donated merchandise and goodies for our raffle on the night so we should be able to make a substantial contribution to the world-wide relief effort.”

Tinchy Stryder, the UKs best selling male artist of 2009 says: “It’s so sad and I know everyone who’s seen the news has been touched by how many people have lost their lives and being made homeless. I’ve protested with Ctrl.Alt.Shift before but now, more than ever, it’s about playing your part, so whether you can give £5 or £50, be a part of it. Unfortunately I’m in America and can’t attend the event but I’ve donated a load of gear from Star In The Hood which you can win on the night, so do make sure you buy your raffle ticket too.”

Wiley, currently in the charts with club anthem ‘Take That’ adds: “When disasters like this happen it gives you a reality check and if there’s something we can do to help then we should all do it. An event like this shows that we’re able to come together and make a difference where it matters.”

With 2009 being the year than many underground artists and genre’s achieved mainstream chart success there has never been a better reason for one and all to come together, share a great night of music and raise money for a worthy cause.

The event takes place at the infamous 1200 capacity Den & Centro (formally The End) in central London on the 20th January.

Proceeds will go to the Ctrl.Alt.Shift Haiti appeal. Hundreds of thousands of people are already feared dead and many more are believed to be critically injured. Countless are homeless. The five partner groups are are targeting areas that are getting little help from other agencies. They will provide food, tents, hygiene kits, blankets, jerry cans for water, water purifiers and medical support.

Updates on the money raised and how it’s been distributed will be available at

New Balance 574 Ceracom

Legendary Ceracom material on the outside. New technology on the inside.

Since its inception, the 574 has been one of New Balance’s most tried and true silhouettes, sought after for its comfort and effortless style. Designed to family with the well-known 576, the 574 remains the iconic New Balance sneaker.

Ceracom, a rubber-like synthetic material, was used in the original construction of the 574 (as the primary material on the upper) and has been brought back with the re-issued 574 for spring 2010. The Ceracom material’s practicality, that is, Ceracom helped shoes stay cleaner and last longer, coupled with the sensibilities of the 574’s comfort and aesthetic created the phenomenon that the 574 is today.

The Bowie Series Limited Edition T-Shirts by Mick Rock

The Bowie Series Limited Edition T-Shirts by Mick Rock

Blood & Glitter offer a collection of exclusive Mick Rock The Bowie Series Limited Edition T-Shirts.

Each T-shirt is wrapped in black tissue paper inside a handmade black box as normally used for a 33 1/3 RPM vinyl record box set. The box and the T-shirt are individually numbered and the box contains a signed print of the original Mick Rock image.

“A time so long ago now it seems like a dream, but it wasn’t and I have the pictures to prove it. Long live the angels of our destiny…”

Mick Rock is “The Man Who Shot the 70’s” the man behind the lens of the images that shaped a generation.

He launched his career in 1969 with his legendary sessions with post-Pink Floyd Syd Barrett.

In 1972 he met a little known David Bowie and for two years documented the rise of his alter ego Ziggy Stardust to worldwide fame.

His career expanded as he produced his now iconic images of cutting edge 70s rockers Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, Queen, Bryan Ferry, Johnny Rotton, Debbie Harry, Talking Heads and the Ramones.

He continues to produce in the new millennium with memorable images of The Killers, The Scissor Sisters, The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, Flamming Lips, Kate Moss, Snow Patrol, Queens of the Stone Age and more.

Part of the royalties from this limited edition have been donated by the artists to the charity WARCHILD.
