Finding Her The Perfect Gift Has Never Been Easier

Finding Her The Perfect Gift Has Never Been Easier

When it comes to gifting, the general consensus is that men are the hardest to shop for. Whilst I admit that gifting for men isn’t exactly a walk in the park, I wouldn’t completely underestimate the difficulty in finding the perfect gift for her. I run you through the best pieces from jeweller, Alice Made This.

An Enquiring Mind: Manolo Blahník

We were recently invited by Walpole to visit the new Manolo Blahník exhibition, An Enquiring Mind, at The Wallace Collection. Built during the 18th and 19th Centuries by the Marquesses of Hertford and Sir Richard Wallace, the museum is steeped in artistic excellence which spans over 800 years.

The Ups and Downs of Dressing Up and Down

The Ups and Downs of Dressing Up and Down

In an editorial centred around the menswear industry, I wrote about dressing well and the impact it has on mental well-being. @photographybymiles shot some of London’s most prominent tailors, brands, writers, bloggers and content makers, and I spoke to them all about their individual stories. From struggles and experiences with depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia to why dressing well has helped them in an otherwise cutthroat industry.

As part of #MoreThanABarber, Murdock have trained some of their staff in Mental Health First Aid, and are selling an exclusive CALM grooming kit. Decent. I went down to Murdock, camera in hand, to find out more and to recount my experiences of the barbershop environment. Featured in the shoot are Anthony Komodikis and Singh Gentry.

Where Time Stands Still

Where Time Stands Still

Vintage shopping is usually more miss than hit, but on the odd occasion, hidden amongst the relics, in a dimmed corner of a leather-scented wood-panelled store overrun with shadows, slogan wall hangings, rolls of film and films of dust, your gaze will stumble across the smallest spec of colour shying away behind the brown and green bombers.

A Visit To Blackhorse Lane

A Visit To Blackhorse Lane

Following the launch of the Selvedge Denim Jeans as part of the Weekend Collection, Turnbull & Asser visited Blackhorse Lane Ateliers to get a closer look at how the jeans were made. I wrote a blog and took pictures for Turnbull’s Off The Cuff blog.

Controlling The Narrative: What Purpose Does Depression Serve?

Controlling The Narrative: What Purpose Does Depression Serve?

What purpose does depression serve? What good does it do? Why does it have this particular effect? Why does it exist? What, ultimately, is depression anyway? Is it a personal experience that only you and you alone can truly understand? Or is it a blanket term for anyone going through a difficult time? I discuss why the conversation around depression is imperative to find our purpose.

London Coffee Festival 2018

London Coffee Festival 2018

If said with enough conviction, the word ‘coffee’ is a complete sentence.

So goes my new favourite quote. The annual coffee festival was in town this past weekend and being the self-proclaimed flat white connoisseur (read: obsessive) that I am, I naturally had to partake.
