I love JW Anderson and the womenswear is really taking on its own character after breaking free from his menswear collections – they look amazing shown alongside each other. Film by Sharif Hamza. Styling by Robbie Spencer.

Definitely one of those times when I kind of wish her coat was available for men, a combination of both their outfits would be a winner. From Dazed & Confused for September 2010, ph. Max Farago, and styling by Joanna Schlenzka.

raf loves fred, qvest june/july 2008

Posted in collection, designer, hero, magazine, menswear, work by benperdue on 03/08/2010

Was going through some old tears and found this piece I did about the first Raf Simons and Fred Perry collaboration collection for QVEST Magazine. Was so happy with this when I found a copy in the old Borders on Charing Cross Rd (RIP).  Loved the accompanying editorial styled by Tamara Rothstein. Love the underwear shoot coming through the scan too.

giorgio armani, autumn/winter 2010 campaign

Posted in advertising, collection, designer, menswear by benperdue on 31/07/2010

Everything tells me I should hate this Mert & Marcus image but I can’t. I even like the new 80s-inspired Frames of Life range of specs that Giorgio Armani have just released too. Don’t know what’s happening to me.
