For all his swagger,  bravado and pure Yeah let’s ave it ! Our Liam has always been a trend setter, and maybe after the One Love Manchester Concert last weekend, see above, we can add a Heart of Gold to that roster. Mr Gallagher junior has built up quite the reputation for fashion empire building on the side with his Pretty Green brand and after wearing this Sassafras Leaf Bud Coat from Oi Polloi, the aforementioned item sold out within an hour off the website!!! But after observing his appreciation for colour and wearing it so well, maybe Liam has stuck a blow for Orange being the colour of Summer 2017, what do you think ?

With Father’s Day a little over a week away, we thought the launch of the French Fragrance house, Azzaro‘s new men’s scent was timely but more so is its backstory for the inspiration behind the fragrance. Founder of the brand, the late, Loris Azzaro shared two great loves, the first his close relationship with his grandson Romain and his attachment to the Mediterranean Sea were the sources of inspiration. With Chrome Pure the driving force behind it, is to reconnect with these two major inspirations: the undeniable bond between a father and his son, and the sense of escapism conveyed by Chrome’s symbolic freshness.

This was the brief set for the creators of this new scent, perfumers Jacques Huclier and Olivier Pescheux, who have been responsible for such iconic aromas as Davidoff Horizon and Thierry Mugler A*Men. In the tradition of Chrome, Chrome Pure focuses on special bonds such as that between a father and his son witnessed during spontaneous moments, instances when time seems to stand still, magical everyday interludes that stay with you for the rest of your life.

Messers Huclier and Pescheux have done a sterling job in recreating the scent of Fresh long Summer days and the memories created during this time. A citrus-oriental-woody fragrance, Chrome Pure revisits Chrome’s emblematic freshness, creating a more textured and vibrant feel, with the addition of two new ingredients: The spicy-woody accents akigala wood and tonka bean join the white musks and mate leaves of the original version. Chrome Pure is a crisp fragrance, synonymous with purity, combined with a real feeling of vibrant freshness and strength, structured around sun-kissed moments.

A city that’s always changing, where art, shops and venues can appear in a night and be gone the next morning. Although forever changing it is also a city with a unique history and blended with the new and evolving it creates one of THE cultural hubs for Europe.

1) Soto – Situated in the heart of Berlin, it opened it’s doors back in 2010, Selling a mixture of designers from America, Europe and Asia it’s aim is to dress the modern man. Containing a mix of fashion future, essentials and classics there’s something for everyone.

2) Voo – Housed in a former locksmiths it’s a concept store like no other (it even has a courtyard out front). The store itself translates it’s “personal vision” of Berlin and is filled with Womenswear menswear as well as home-wear. With exposed walls, it’s all about the product than the aesthetic. Voo has a massive A-Z of desginers from Craig Green to Wood Wood.

3) Andreas Murkudis – After spending 15 years directing a museum Andreas opened up his own store in 2003, wanting to create a “museum-like atmosphere” the concept store houses a unique and outstanding collection of products that are very carefully curated.

4) Temporary Showroom – This concept store prides itself of blending fashion forward designers and the up and coming. Unlike the name suggests this store isn’t temporary at all, and is not just a store but a PR Company too.
