Topman have been supporting Sibling over the past few years through their NewGen MEN sponsorship and more recently the LCM award, which helped fund their recent catwalk show.
‘It’s been such a privilege to have collaborated with Sibling on this Knitwear collection. They are a team that I’ve wanted to work with for some time and a chance conversation in the Topman pub take over at London Collections:MEN provided us with the excuse. Their expertise and command of the “language of knits” has resulted in an amazing collection with a strong Id and that touch of irreverence associated with their brand,´ says Gordon Richardson, Creative Director of Topman.
For their collaboration with Topman, they have put their twist on the classic Christmas jumper along with a selection of fun knitted accessories.
The SIBLING TOPMAN collaboration is available at Oxford Circus – London, General Store – Shoreditch, Arndale- Manchester, SELFRIDGES – London

When we met the guys behind Norwegian Rain, here, they told us about their plans to launch a store in London, not only showing their raincoats, but a whole collective of fashion creatives. Well, it’s just opened at Harvey Nichols, London. Called the ‘COAL’ project, it features work by members - Kalaf Angelo, T-Michael, Sebastian Dollinger, Sam Lambert, Shaka Maidoh, Aroun Ducroux and Matteo Gioli. Pieces by Paris-based Lotho eyewear, Super Duper Hats and Sebastian Dollinger’s special-edition Eton shirts all sit in the new space along Norwegian Rain's collection of ridiculously waterproof raincoats.

The largest retail space on London’s Savile Row, the new Richard James store, designed by renowned architect Andy Martin, is divided in two main areas, ‘Seasonal’ and ‘Classic’, by a translucent screen treated with a dichroic film which varies in colour, luminosity and reflectiveness. This free-standing screen becomes the central feature of the new space, operating both as a vibrant backdrop to the displays in the ‘Seasonal’ area and a circulation distributor, concealing the more ‘private’ areas of the ‘Classic’ and Changing Rooms.
Andy says, “We derived techniques and effects from the above, which are directly translated in the key design features of our proposal. For example, the stretched canvas ceiling system works in direct reference to colour in terms of its reflective and projective qualities and the central screen evokes the chromatic and translucent related to light, texture and colour blur.”
