A Punk Poet
Some not-so-new new tunes on the new turntable in Richard James Bespoke.
Our resident music maestro Kevin – yes, he of Medley’s Melodies and the man who puts the soundtracks together for our runway shows and collection presentations – has gone back to the ’70s and discovered the proto punk poet Patrik Fitzgerald, who, we are pleased to discover, is still performing.
A supplier of ours actually produced a fanzine called Anonymous Society at the time Fitzgerald first emerged and was sent a couple of these 7″ records by his label Small Wonder to review. And having spied our new turntable, he brought them in so we could give them a spin. Playing, top, is Trendy from the Backstreet Boys EP of 1978.
Look and listen out for more rare and esoteric vinyl at the Bespoke store soon.

One day’s shooting in and around Waddington Studios in a murky north London for sixty seconds of film.
The videos for our collections usually centre on our London Fashion Week Men’s shows and presentations, but for our AW17 Camofleur collection we took a different approach.
This time around we shot the video (right, bottom) at the same time that we shot the lookbook, whisking our three models out into the surrounding locale between takes.
The collection is arriving in-store on Savile Row and at Richard James Online now.
The hot and happening new dance director of the Paris Opera Ballet hits the creative buffers, but gets himself back on track after he is paid a visit by his dearly departed dad.
Anissa Bonnefont‘s beautifully shot The Eyes Of My Father was commissioned by the British Fashion Council’s Fashion Arts Foundation to showcase, they say, the international language of British fashion.

But a brief snatch of the super soundtrack our own Kevin Medley put together for Sunday’s London Fashion Week Men’s presentation of our SS18 Atlantic collection.
You can see the collection until Friday 16th June at Pitti Uomo – G/1, Padiglione Centrale, Piano Attico.
Our SS18 Atlantic collection steps back savvily to 1957 and the canny, clear-sighted confines of the Whitney Museum of American Art, where it casts a keen, captivated eye over Ellsworth Kelly’s three crisp and coolly confident contributions to the cutting-edge Young America exhibition…
Here’s the video of our SS18 Atlantic collection, which we presented at London Fashion Week Men’s on Sunday.
You can see the collection now at Pitti Uomo – G/1, Padiglione Centrale, Piano Attico – in fair Firenze until Friday 16th.
And you can see the lookbook and sign up to receive more information about it and all things Richard James here.
