Oliver Spencer is a modern man with traditional taste, and so it was, that with a desire to create a collection that mirrored his own wardrobe’s unique mix of street wear and tailoring, the self taught designer launched his first collection in 2002. Drawing inspiration from long established pursuits and time honoured systems such as hunting and the military, alongside touches of Americana and Japanese styling, the end result is a fusion of modern design and old school construction.

Passarella Death Squad have drawn influence from the Velvet Underground for their new collection of Black & White photographic tees.
Each t-shirt is named after the Velvet Underground song that has inspired it, showing a mixture of typography from 1960’s concert posters and Black & White photography of some very beautiful women. Printed onto both White and Black t-shirts, the collection is striking and beautiful with a strong retro feel.
These tees will be available at select stockists including Liberty’s, End Clothing, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols as of Thursday (30th September)

British brand Heritage Research have done something a little different for the look book of their Autumn/Winter collection. Neil Bedford is no stranger to fashion shoots, having worked with the likes of Duffer, Penfield and Billionaires Boys Club in the past. For the Heritage Research AW10 look book he has used a selection of animated GIFs to create what is essentially a Black & White online flick book. A pretty cool concept that has worked a treat. It’s always nice to see brands getting a bit creative with their look books and trying to think outside of the box, and this is a great example. The product will be in stores very soon.

By now you know that Autumn/Winter 2010 is all about shearling. But to avoid following the herd, try Jofama, a sophisticated Swedish brand and a leather specialist since 1926, soon to be available in the UK for the first time. The jackets in its so-called “Retro” collection come in several styles but all look as if like you’ve been living in them for more than a couple of seasons. Slightly worn in, perfect to wear out.
