Ed van der Elsken: Love on the Left Bank

April 04 2012, 13:59

First published in 1954, Love on the Left Bank follows the fictional story of Ann, a bohemian living in Paris. It is one of the first photographic books to record the birth of rebellious youth culture in Europe. 

The muse Vali Myers immortalised in the streets and bars of a bohemian Paris was an Australian artist by nature; she also was the tattooist responsible for the lightning bolt (in honor of Crazy Horse) on Patti Smith's knee.

Made in England

March 23 2012, 14:01

The fit and construction of a tailored trouser and jacket are integral to tailoring. A simple shoulder pad, canvas fusing or just the way a seam is stitched can mean the difference between a good or bad fit. We wanted to be able to give our customer this level of attention to detail in our tailoring. It also means that we can use European fabrics and trims which have superb quality and tradition behind them.



We reviewed our working methods, and decided to go back to more traditional methods of fashion design and manufacturing. We now work with some fantastic pattern cutters and great factories in London. Manufacturing clothes in England is sadly a dying tradition in this country, when we used to be famous for it.  A lot of these factories are hidden away, so it’s been an exciting adventure discovering them. We are thrilled with the quality we are now being able to achieve and offer.
