YMC (You Must Create) AUTUMN/WINTER 2013/14

Designer Fraser Moss becomes nostalgic and looks back to the 1990’s for inspiration – the post punk era and the time YMC was launched

Viva Le Beret! - Sporting berets and wearing black, grey and navy, the models have a look of the French Resistance.  The beret is the collection’s statement piece that cries freedom, revolution and rebellion. Plus it is set to be the ‘on’ trend headgear for the season.

Zip it! – Zips adorn the casual pieces of parachute chinos, jumpsuits, a multi pocket silk bomber jacket and provide back to front as they decorate the full length of the back of sweaters and cardigans.

Blazers combine the slim fit tailored style of the suit jacket with the casual elasticated ribbed cuffs of the sweatshirt.

 The covert coat has an update with suede and leather trimmed collar instead of the traditional velvet.

Car coats also get the leather trim treatment along the hem, collar and front

Accents of soft baby pink, pale orange and teal blue lighten the otherwise sombre colour palette in sweater and shirt patterns, as colour blocks on trousers and even on thick soled suede creepers.
A play on the golfing scene came to the ‘fore’ with intarsia sweaters similar to the argyle pattern;

Coloured patterned socks on view;

 And tartan trousers. All bringing a touch of fun to the collection

Tartan also made it on to outerwear – short coats and trench like jackets.

Another dominate pattern was the checkerboard on shirts, scarves and sweaters, ranging from the large bold print to the smaller more subtle print.
Will you dare to join the Beret revolution?

Available soon from
YMC Store at 23 Hanbury Street, London E1 6QR

“Maurice Lacroix Strait of Magellan Expedition” sets a world record!

Zurich, 20.02.2013. Two dentists from Zurich have negotiated the 560 km long Strait of Magellan on kiteboards, setting a world record under extreme weather conditions and taking the sport of kiteboarding into a new dimension. Maurice Lacroix supported the venture under the slogan “YOUR TIME IS NOW.”


Strong winds, icy temperatures and persistent poor visibility certainly created difficult conditions for brothers Geza and André Scholtz, two dentists from the city of Zurich who are passionate about kite surfing. Their great dream – to navigate the Strait of Magellan by kiteboard – became reality on January 7, 2013. “We congratulate the expedition team, who have proved once again that we should always hold on to our dreams in order to make them come true. In spite of the difficult conditions, the time was right for the team to rise above all the challenges,” says Marc Gläser, Managing Director of Maurice Lacroix SA, which supported the project.

The Strait of Magellan lies between the southernmost tip of South America and the island of Tierra del Fuego. It is named after the Portuguese mariner Ferdinand Magellan, who, in 1520, was the first to sail through the strait in the course of his voyage around the world. Since the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914, the strait has been used only by large transport vessels that cannot pass through the canal. With its icy water temperatures, roaring winds and poor visibility, the strait is regarded as one of the most difficult and dangerous navigation routes. The passage demanded full commitment from the entire team. A record achievement in terms of sporting endurance, bringing with it the reward of a place in history as the “Maurice Lacroix Strait of Magellan Expedition”.

Oliver Spencer AW13/14 collection

Oliver Spencer turned to German art theorist Joseph Beuys and his involvement with the 1960s Fluxus Movement for his inspiration. Like the Fluxus Movement which saw the idea of art as a game for the artist to reconfigure the rules; Oliver Spencer reconfigures the style rules:

A shearling jacket is dandified into the long cutaway style with a high neck making the exposed wool reminiscent of an Elizabethan ruffle collar worn by Sir Walter Raleigh. This jacket is then dressed down with a citrus orange top and thick woollen jogging style trousers rolled up to show chunky work boots.
The shearling jacket made a few more appearances but always in a different style

Looking warm, cosy and casual in the padded bomber jacket style. Teamed with navy joggers and hot mustard accessories.

A dapper look as a slim fit leather jacket with just a shearling collar. Both smart and casual trousers in the collection sported rolled up hems exposing socks and Spencer’s capped toe Oxford boots and classic shoes.

Black and grey horizontal striped trousers similar to the stereotype prisoner outfit are matched with a tailored jacket and slim fit short coat. The jacket is an updated version of the Nehru style with contrasting upturned collar
The use of horizontal stripes was prevalent ranging from the above trousers, to shirts and to one wide colour block stripe of bright burgundy bringing an accent of colour to a pea coat.

It was stripes galore for the finale piece: Wide horizontal stripes of charcoal, mid grey and bronze on a single breasted wool suit teamed with a red and black striped tie. Definitely a statement outfit.

The collection will be available soon from www.oliverspencer.co.uk

And 62 Lambs Conduit Street, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 3LW.
