X-Men: Days Of Future Past


Finally Bryan Singer gets to sit in the director’s chair again for the latest instalment of the X-Men franchise, Days of Future past. Bringing with him the stylish cinematography of Newton Thomas Sigel to set the mood.

At the beginning we are introduced to a dystopian future where mutants are hunted by relentless killing machines known as Terminators, errr sorry Sentinels. These Sentinels are practically indestructible and so it’s only a matter of time before the mutants are caught.


And so in true Terminator style Wolverine is sent back in time to the 1970’s to stop the government programme that created these machines. Thankfully this is where the comparisons to Terminator end and Singer has managed to bring us a version of Wolverine much closer to the first two episodes of the franchise.

The film also does well at bringing the characters from the prequel and the original X-men films together with style and class. Richard Nixon also appears as a catalyst for the dangerous events unfolding.

Michael Fassbender puts in another excellent performance as Magneto. Though it has to be said the star of the show, although only for a small portion of the film, is Quicksilver. It’s worth watching alone for the comic set piece inside the pentagon.
This is definitely a welcome boost to the X-Men franchise, which surpasses the previous instalment and makes us optimistic for the next X-men film announced for 2016. Go out and watch it now!

Bacardi Untameable Launch party


Last month Bacardi kindly invited us down to an event celebrating the launch of their new campaign entitled ‘Untameable.’

During a brief seminar we learned about the rich history and cultural significance Bacardi has in the cocktail world. Apparently the Bacardi family invented many of the Rum cocktails we know and love today, which we were able to sample unreservedly at the party.

The party theme was prohibition era Cuba, an obvious reference to the Booze fuelled holidays Americans took in Cuba during the prohibition of alcohol in the 1930s. Bacardi played a key role in promoting rum as a luxury drink and also pioneered the process of distillation which has been copied by many other brands.

There was cuban food, prohibition style Jazz, a DJ playing from behind a bunch of suitcases, gambling and of course every Bacardi cocktail you can possibly imagine.

Little Shilpa LFW AW 2014


Amongst the madness of LFW a few collections stick with you. Once such collection was the rather haunting presentation of Little Shilpa, held in the exhibition room of the Freemason’s hall.

The experience was like being aboard a Borg cube whilst a Vulcan ritual was taking place. Each model held a torch underneath their faces whilst they moved around with a kind of random choreography, glaring at the spectators like tortured animals to some avant-garde music.

We loved the theatrical/futuristic appeal of the designs, which have a mixture of organic and religious motifs.

Karl Lagerfield is coming to London!


World renowned fashion designer Karl Lagerfield is in London this week, and ahead of a massive London Store launch this Friday on Regent Street he has announced a London inspired Capsule collection.
Comprising of printed T-shirts, bags, wallets and an i-phone case they combine the union jack with the iconic image of Lagerfield. The accessories are embellished with a silver studded union jack and the prints have a very punky rock-chic style to them.

Along with these items we’re told Karl has designed a very special line of menswear and womenswear which have a British Military edge.

Everything is available from Friday at the Karl Lagerfield. Store 145-147 Regent Street. Stay tuned for images of the store itself later this week.

Phife Dawg “Dear Dilla” directed by Konee Rok

Screen Shot 2014-02-13 at 10.58.09

Phife Dawg comes back from his fifteen year hiatus with this tribute to the late J Dilla, whose production became ubiquitous in the late 90’s and early 2000’s until his untimely death in 2006.

The video focusses on Phife’s struggle with Diabetes, which many argue lead to the demise of A Tribe Called Quest. More than anything else this video reminds us not just how much we miss J Dilla’s beats, but how we’ve missed Phife Dawg’s lyrics.

Bespoke HQ Spring/Summer 2014 Launch Recap

jimmyq_joshua kane_Nicole

Just before christmas we were invited down to the reknowned London tailors, Bespoke HQ Spring/Summer 2014 launch. In the depths of Clerkenwell we raced against time to find the showroom located a stones throw from Farringdon Station, thank God for Googlemaps!

As we arrived in our semi-sober state we were handed glasses of champagne and invited to try some of the best whiskey available to mankind.


On display was a collection of evening jackets designed for evenings after work. Made in various shades and colours they have a lightweight feel for when the weather gets a bit warmer. Each have their own names, the Albion, Ashby, Chadwell, Lloyd, Turmill, Whiskin, Clerkenwell and Farringdon, I had my eye on the Whiskin.
