On Thursday last week we lined up the Jameson Whiskey, and turned the volume up to eleven in our Mod_ular Blanc pop-up space in our Commercial Street store to welcome Marshall Headphones to their new residency. Black Manila provided some rock & roll spirit to the soundtrack for the evening and guests enjoyed whiskey and ginger, American style in red cups.
Sunglasses. The great equalizer. Celebrities wear them to blend in, the rest of us wear them to stand out. Either way, you can tell a lot about a person by the sunglasses they wear. 50 Shades (no, not that one) was published this November, and we added it straight to the Ben Sherman coffee table. Featuring fifty photographs of the last century’s most iconic figures in the coolest sunglasses of the age.
Whilst we eagerly await the opening of our Marshall pop-up at the end of this week, we take a look back at the history of another British brand celebrating 50 years in the business. Supplying sound to icons such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Pete Townsend, they are a brand with a rich heritage in music. 50 years of LOUD.
We are pleased to announce that we are hosting a photography exhibition within our London Portobello store. Roadside Britain by Sam Mellish shows the traditional and quintessential aspects of British trunk-roadside culture, with emphasis on location and environment. Depicting the people and places of a threatened livelihood, the images are warm, nostalgic, quirky and melancholic, giving immediate appeal to anyone who has ever driven any distance along the country’s A and B roads.
Yesterday marked the start of Movember, originally called November but now a single, yet significant strip of facial hair has taken over with the aim of raising vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and testicular cancer. In celebration of this we have pulled together our top lip-spiration and a guide on the the weird and wonderful types of moustaches.
