Spring/Summer ’16


Beloved By Royalty

W magazine has been busy getting to the bottom of why Richard James is beloved by royalty, from Diddy to Prince William.

To illustrate his pull, Richard reposes (top) with Richard James-clad actors Tom Bateman, Tom Ellis and Ben Robson while (middle) Bateman and Toby Huntington-Whitely model prototypes of the Swarovski crystal-encrusted evening jackets we made for Elton John and (bottom) Huntington-Whitely is moved by a SS16 My Green Trauma shirt.

Reel Inspiration – Rush

Rush tells the fascinating and – at times – terrifying story of the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship, where unruly playboy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and super-serious Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl) go head-to-head for the biggest prize of all: the drivers’ title.

Displaying the glamour, intensity and danger of racing in the 1970s in an unrivalled fashion, the film revisits the style of the past while detailing one of the most iconic and memorable seasons in motorsport history.

Lauda’s analytical approach differs greatly to Hunt’s casual, rebellious and carefree attitude and things get heated between the two drivers both on and off the track.

The fiery battle, gripping drama and emotional heartbreak are just a few of the many captivating layers to the Hunt vs. Lauda story, captivating racing rookies and petrol heads alike.

Away from the race suits, it also showcases some super gear, not least a fine, richly hued teal shirt.

Reel Inspiration – Trainspotting

Whey-faced Edinburgh H enthusiast Renton (Ewan McGregor) kicks his habit the hard way by locking himself away with tinned soup, ice cream, milk of magnesia, valium, jazz mags and buckets for any effluence ahead of eloping to London where he makes the most unlikely of lettings agents before being tracked down by his rackety gang of hometown reprobates who make him an offer he can’t refuse.

The profound highs and lows of heroin addiction are preferable to middle lane mundanity in Danny Boyle’s rollicking, tragicomic Trainspotting (1996).

Excellent showing for the bomber jacket at its utilitarian, easy-wearing best, too.

What to Wear & Where – Can Carlos in Formentera

The party season is getting underway in Ibiza – fun and frolics of the first order from now until October.

If you’re visiting and feel you need a breather, we recommend a visit to the charming restaurant Can Carlos on the much smaller and correspondingly quieter neighbouring island of Formentera.

And if you were wondering what to wear, we’ve put together a perfect, coolly Mediterranean look of a bright turquoise whipcord jacket, a blue parrot pocket square, a pristine white mercerised cotton polo, a very summery pair of teal big jungle leaves trousers and a pair of super-soft off-white deerskin sneakers. No socks.

All online orders addressed to London postcodes – E, SE, SW, W, NW, N – made by 12 noon UK time from Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) can be delivered on the same day.
