Interview with Chad White

How does one follow up interviewing model beauties Soo Joo Park, Robyn Lawley, and Neelam Gill for MTV Style?  Well I can't speak for anyone else but I went and did what felt natural and interviewed a male supermodel.  

Chad White is no stranger to my blog, which is little surprise when he regularly pops up in editorials like this one, this one and THIS ONE, but this is the first time I have interviewed the handsome American so file this under the beginnings of a beautiful bromance.

Poppin' My Collar in T.M.Lewin's AW14 Collection

File this under well-suited, T.M.Lewin has been supplying quality business wear - including shirts, suits and accessories - for men and women since 1898. And with the company still employing many of the same traditional manufacturing techniques pinoeered by its founder, Thomas Mayes Lewin, as well as the excellent craftsmanship, choice and value that remains the driving force behind the brand, it is no surprise that T.M.Lewin has over 90 stores in the UK alone, with further plans to expand the brand across the rest of the world.

Being the lucky wasp that I am, I was sent one of T.M.Lewin's shirts last week - the London Super Fitted White Sateen Point Collar Shirt to be exact - which couldn't have come at a better time to be honest, now that I am charging on with my plans to move to London and will no doubt have to dress up my look at times for work related meetings and dinner dates with sugar daddies. If I'm honest, I am so not the best when it comes to ordering shirts online but luck was on my side when I guesstimated my measurements this time around, as what arrived was a perfectly fitting crisp white shirt. What surprised me the most though when trying it on was how much I'd missed dressing up. Having become used to wearing something borderline smart casual every day for seven years in my last job, I had totally forgotten how nice it feels to put on a nice shirt, slip on a pair of dress trousers, and finish the look off with a cheeky wee tie and statement shoes. It's a classic look that I am definitely going to embrace a lot more going forward. And I guess I have T.M.Lewin to thank for that.

But lets not forget that T.M.Lewin offer more than just great basics. They also make very nice suits, and their new AW14 collection which I've been fortunate enough to have a sneak peek at is making its own bold statement.  Inspired by the industrial landscape, the new collection is defined by the depth of colour, tone and texture used across the range.  Think greys, blues, and navy coupled with a wealth of rich textured weaves, melange yarns and camouflage jacquards and you're already halfway there.  It's a youthful collection and I think it will definitely appeal to the next gen businessman who is as focused on creating a memorable look as he is on practicality and quality.  It ticks all the boxes and will be available in store and online from 4th August.

For now though, I am giving serious consideration to purchasing myself one of T.M.Lewin's skinny fit suits which are available in black, grey and navy and look all kinds of adorable.  Appropriately pitches as he perfect 'first suit', The Skinny is a sleek and streamlined little number that appeals in the sense that if you're a skinny bitch like me you can't really go wrong.  Whilst there's something to be said for an extremely well groomed sugar daddy, I know better than to steal shade from the man who pays my bills, and this suit just appeals in its simplicity.  What's more, you can't really go wrong spending £149 on a nice suit.  It will also mean I can totally justify spending £905 on these Lanvin metal-embellished leather derby shoes to finish off the look.  And people say us skinny rakes have no brains?  Aye right.

Your First Look at Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

Now that we are less than a year away from seeing a new Mad Max film at the cinema - the first since 1985 threequel Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome gifted us the iconic pairing of Mel Gibson and Tina Turner on the big screen - we are starting to be thrown some remarkably succulent looking bones courtesy of director George Miller.  

After wowing the crowds this past week at Comic-Con by showing them exclusive footage from the film, we now have five posters for Fury Road which feature handsome beast Tom Hardy as Max Rockatansky, and his less recognisable co-stars Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Hugh Keays-Byrne.  

By the looks of it there's a right proper shitstorm heading our way in 2015 and I couldn't be more excited!

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley for Prabal Gurung FW14 Campaign

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is the face of Prabal Gurung's new fall campaign and was photographed by Daniel Jackson.  What I like about these images the most - and don't get me wrong, Rosie is a fine selling point - is that the backdrops were built, not photoshopped, with Gerard Santos creating a new age world that I'd love to holiday in next summer.  So finger snaps for getting your hands dirty, boys.  These images are proper lush.
