Viktor & Rolf have a playfulness that compliments their immaculate tailoring, and this really come across in this shoot they self-styled for GQ Style Italy. Wearing clothes from their fall 2009 Monsieur collection, the designers' eccentricity is expressed in the accessories - like these slouch socks.

A Wimbledon pandemic is looming large in London, and UK's finest sports herritage brand, Fred Perry, has two irons in the fire. The first is its much publised sponsorship of Andy Murray, the 22 year old (I know, he looks almost 30. So fit and yet so aged, non?) shouldering the burden of England's sporting hopes and dreams. This performance range is strickly for courtside, but a handsome collection.
We also have the brand’s 3rd collaboration with Raf Simon. The A/W 09 range features bold African colours: a welcome relief from the all-black collection. Again the focus is on the laural leaf logo, but there is a sense of fun with some saucy mesh vests, as well as some very nice moccasins (below). Yes please.

The cut of the blazers are great, and the fabrication fairly high standard. It falls down on the knitware and the t-shirting, but all in all, good work Mathew.
Instead, I purchased this tie from Uniqlo (above). Far too much of my current wardrobe is from Uniqlo, but what can I say: it is classic with a preppy edge, high quality (the stuff lasts) and affordable. The rainbow completed my day.
