I recently worked for Brighterman's vintage ASOS campaign, chanelling a ladder of ties from all the big names with the whacky prints. It's funny how the retro designs from the likes of YSL were for no-strings-attached formal intentions back in the day, yet now they've been brought out of hibernation and grandparents attics, it suits the east-end irony and modern pop that everyones craving. I usually opt for skinny twig ties, but the Brighterman collection has some funky wide designs with knitted texture that make the accessory much more of a statement.
On the theme of accessories and essentials, I was also approached recently by the latest underwear phenomenon to give the package more purpose (forgive the pun!) I like to make sure that even essential wear has an edge to it, and Jac5 is comfortable and stylish but with a sense of colour popping humour. Branded as 'barking mad', this editorial is barking brilliant.
