Last season’s menswear collection for Balmain, created by Rousteing we entitled “The Lion’s Den’….The colours were safari driven, tonal, latte almost alchemist-esque.

When it comes to men’s suiting many of us shy away from any or all decisions around the purchase apart from whether it needs to be a three piece, a two piece and needs a friendly price tag. But, if you appreciate your suit like you do a European sports car, then you would add [...]

Vampires and their Hair
