You were warned never to push Carrie to the limits… Now, JW Anderson has partnered with MGM on a capsule collection featuring none other than the blood-soaked prom queen. A full capsule collection of ready-to-wear puffer jackets, T-shirts, tracksuits and printed co-ords, the spellbinding AW22 offering features prints of Sissy Spacek before and after pig-gate, killer (literally) quotes, and an accompanying campaign starring none other than the magical Lily McMenemy. Warning: might induce levitating, revenge rampage or Bible bashing. For now, we’ll pray.
Swarovski's just unveiled its new Christmas campaign and it's a blinder.

In 2021, the late, great visionary Virgil Abloh co-signed Small Talk Studio – a bespoke clothing brand based in New York City. Much loved for its DIY sketches on trucker jackets, jeans, oversized T-shirts and button-up shirts, Small Talk’s one-a-kind style, sometimes called “artwear”, makes it a uniquely offbeat offering in the often saturated streetwear world. Now, they’re partnering with workwear giants Carhartt WIP for an exclusive collection sold at Browns, featuring sketches pointing to hot, hazy Americana days. Summer may be nearing its end, so slap it on your back instead.
One of our favourite emerging menswear designers has just launched his AW22 graduate collection with SSENSE – a mix of subversive tailoring, sheer fabrics to flirt in and leather to get you laid. With a sweet spot that blends sensual romance, heady nightlife and structured silhouettes, Aaron Esh’s namesake label is offbeat and deconstructed, flipping the basic fundamentals of menswear on its head in favour of something altogether more freeing. It’s as smooth as a fine wine, but as rough as the morning after. Drink up, we say.
