The new fashion forward (Telegraph)
“Such is the insanely accelerated speed of the fashion world that the clothes appearing in shops now already seem not to be the latest thing, their significance lost, having long ago been… sucked dry through overexposure.”

Personal tailoring for everyone (Telegraph)
“With 84 stores in Britain (it also has branches in the USA, China and the Gulf), the scheme has the potential to transform the entire concept of tailoring on the high street – if [Reiss] gets it right. The early signs are good.”

A British Fashion Invasion (Portfolio)
“International sales are 30 percent of our business, and the U.S. is the fastest-growing market—without any advertising… it’s time to give the American consumers what they want, a U.S. presence.”

Twitter redesign will increase luxury brand engagement (Luxury Daily)
“In an industry whose online presence is highly defined by rich media and images, Twitter’s redesign will help luxury marketers increase their brand engagement.”

New names prove their worth on menswear day (Telegraph)
“Finding links between young designers and the new names of Savile Row, men’s day is creating a movement all of its own. The key catwalk names are James Long and Christopher Shannon, both designers in their twenties.”
