BOTW Moodboard: Tensnake

“Something for the weekend.” It’s a phrase as ubiquitous to dance music as “get down,” “four to the floor,” or “wow, look at my hands.” So, we’ll forgive you for doubting us when we say that Tensnake‘s forthcoming debut album, Glow (out March 9 on Virgin/EMI), is the perfect



Stockholm Fashion Week SS13: Filippa K

Sweden’s clean, tasteful and impeccable-finished middleweight brands are the darling of global fashion editors; but there is more to Sweden than Acne.

Joe Brummell #10 – A Spot of Bother

If I said I’d love to have acne, loads of acne, I’d be talking about clothes from the Swedish fashion label, not the skin complaint. For most of us acne is a distant memory from puberty, when combined with embarrassing cracking voices and sprouting hair it marked the transition from …



Presque-Fur: AW11

Now, we’ve all heard of the term ‘faux fur’, which is seen as the ethical way to wearing fur glamour. Looks like it, but isn’t it: no animals harmed.

This season however, there seems to be an emergence of ‘presque-fur’, yes that’s right: nearly-fur, seen from Prada to Acne, and …
