Brand Spotlight: MCQ

Alexander McQueen is famous for many things. From stoking controversy in the nineties with provocative titles for his collections and garments to his lavish, over the top runway shows, he was an icon of British fashion until his untimely death in 2010. His legacy lives on through his eponymous fashion house, and it was particularly poignant that just over a year after his death it was Alexander McQueen that was the name responsible for creating Kate Middleton’s wedding dress, sure to go down as one of the most famous of...

Everyone loves a fashion success story. The annals of the fashion hall of fame are filled with rags to riches stories of talented, creative individuals putting their dreams to paper and, eventually, achieving everything more than they could have ever imagined. In this sense, Mallet Footwear is no different. Except, perhaps, the ‘eventually’ part. You see, Mallet Footwear hasn’t been around for decades. It’s barely been around for years. Founder Tommy Mallet’s million dollar brainwave came in 2015, and in four short years, Mallet Footwear has grown from an idea... Read More

Brand Spotlight: Moncler

You might think it would be difficult for adrenaline junkies and die-hard fashion followers to find something in common. It would, after all, be easy to assume that lovers of outdoor sports simply don’t care what they’re wearing, or that most fashionistas wouldn’t be seen dead running around a forest. All of these preconceptions and assumptions were, however, shattered when Moncler burst onto the fashion scene after being founded in France in 1952. Pioneering global leaders in luxury technical outerwear, Moncler has built its brand on a fusion of functionality... Read More

Nowadays, Westwood continues to make sure her fashion delivers a message. She often links her designs to causes close to her heart, the most poignant example being the iconic Vivienne Westwood Orb...

Brand Spotlight: Givenchy

When the engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was announced, the fashion world waited with baited breath to see who the new Duchess-to-be would choose to design her wedding dress. Being American, the jury was out as to who it would be; for English rose Kate Middleton, McQueen was an obvious choice, her elegant lace gown representing a celebration of British fashion. Meghan, it seemed, could choose practically anyone. When the day arrived and the bride stepped out in front of a wall of the world’s media, her simple,... Read More

Brand Spotlight: DSquared2

Perhaps Dean and Dan Caten were destined to be fashion legends. It’s unsurprising, given how many parallels can be drawn between them and the late, great Gianni Versace. Both are famous for innovative and bold designs, and both heavily feature nods to their childhoods throughout their work. Versace grew up in Italy playing amongst ancient ruins, whereas the Caten twins grew up in Canada, but you probably already knew that! Another striking similarity is the understanding of the power of music in promoting and growing a fashion brand. As Versace... Read More
