Bespoken For.

What with the overwhelming array of newsletters from online style bibles now available (many of which I subscribe to, much to my inbox’s chagrin…) I’ve found it to be a sorting-the-chaff-from-the-wheat situation. Most definitely of the wheat category (apologies for getting all agrarian…) is Dazed Digital who consistently bring inventive labels/designers previously unknown to me, to my full attention. Example: Bespoken.

Designed and manufactured exclusively in England the produce of Bespoken is inspired by the old English tradition of bespoke tailoring (something I really do hope to learn more about, and for those of a similar disposition see Style Salvage Steve who seems much more versed about this process). The SS09 collection boasts what appears to be immaculately cut blazers with v. pleasingly precise lapels in understated shades of charcoal and pale grey. What I love most though is assortment of collars which more than satisfies my desire for variety, there’s point, cutaway and wing collars to name but a few. Thoroughly lovely lookbook to boot.

NOTE: Well done to the Nokia Young Fashion Designer Awards winners and all entrants! It was an incredibly enjoyable affair despite lengthy standing and slight head pains/spasms due to resounding volume pumping from the speaker behind me. Met fashion maven Susie Bubble who is indescribably lovely and failed to secure an introduction to Godfrey Deeny or Brendan Mullane, however the free Perrier mohitos mitigated this somewhat.

    Steve fools you by just writing “bespoke” a lot.
