Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Fashion on Tuesday 12 February 2013

The Retar Crew Reader Find

By The Retar Crew in New Fashion on Wednesday 9 January 2013

Either way, Rod Lavers were cool then and are still just as cool now, earning them the title of classic.

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in New Fashion on Friday 14 December 2012

We already had our eye on him four years ago. Now, with abstract sculpture pioneer Barbara Hepworth as his muse for his S/S 13 collection, London-based fashion designer Peter Jensen somehow manages to make sharp-looking visor hats with holes in them that hardly look daft at all.

We’re digging the look of the Autumn 2012 Lacoste Essential Design (LED) range, which takes its visual cues from the great design and classic styles of Eames, Jacobsen, Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier, amongst others.
