Style for Soldiers - Huntsman Savile Row

Huntsman, together with luxury shirt-maker Emma Willis provide a helping hand to boost the confidence of British soldiers returning from war zones with life-changing injuries. To do that, the house has joined with Willis’s charity, Style for Soldiers, to provide bespoke and made to measure suits for a number of ex-servicemen with conflict injuries.

Willis started the charity almost ten years ago, after listening to a radio programme about the difficulties wounded servicemen have in entering back into civilian life. In response to this, she decided to employ her shirt-making skills to bolster the self-esteem of injured soldiers.

Huntsman’s chairman, Pierre Lagrange, says that working with the charity was a natural move. “As you’ll hear from the team at Huntsman, styling those soldiers in bespoke garments has been an extraordinary, uplifting experience for all, and I am grateful to Emma for her leadership that inspired us”. Huntsman’s general manager Carol Pierce and cutter Anette Akselberg worked together with the retired soldiers, to create a suit expertly fitted to their different body shapes,

Among the ex-servicemen are 25-year-old Shaun Stocker, who lost both his legs and was partially blinded when he stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan. Stocker, who now works as a motivational speaker, asked Huntsman to make the suit for his wedding. Akselberg has cut the suit in grey herringbone wool, with a coat and waistcoat, in Huntsman’s classic, single button style.
 Garth Banks, a soldier who was also injured in Afghanistan in 2010, and who now has two prosthetic legs, commissioned a suit with short trousers in what Akselberg describes as “a bright, French blue.”

New video: Gillette's Perfect isn't Pretty Olympics film


Film Features A Never-Before-Heard Mix of Sia’s Popular Track, Unstoppable  

BOSTON, USA—July 13, 2016—With less than one month to go until Opening Ceremonies of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Gillette, the world’s leading male grooming brand, today debuted Perfect Isn’t Pretty – the central piece in the brand’s Olympic Games campaign.
 Starring Gillette’s global roster of athlete ambassadors, Neymar Jr. (Brazil, Football), Ashton Eaton (USA, Decathlon), Ning Zetao (China, Freestyle Swimming) and Andy Tennant (Great Britain, Team Pursuit Cycling), the Perfect Isn’t Pretty Film pulls back the curtain, shining a spotlight on the grueling journey that athletes face throughout their training process.
By revealing the tough, and often overlooked everyday struggles, combined with the sacrifices that athletes make in their pursuit of perfection – from enduring physical pain to unexpected arguments with loved ones – Gillette truly brings the concept of Perfect Isn’t Pretty to life for consumers.
 “I think it’s difficult for people to understand the complete and utter commitment athletes have to make to perfect their sport, to become as precise as possible in execution,” said Neymar Jr. “We fully commit ourselves to refining our skills during training in order to reach our ultimate goal of competing at the Olympic Games. And it’s incredible that Gillette wanted to highlight that side of the journey – not just the glitz and glam, but what it really takes to get to the grandest stage in the world of sport. I’m honored to be a part of something that shows what really happens behind the scenes in the lead up to the Olympic Games.”
 For the film, Gillette collaborated with award-winning singer and songwriter Sia to put a fresh new twist that speaks to the heart of Perfect Isn’t Pretty, on her latest track, “Unstoppable.”
In celebration of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, the brand enlisted three additional global artists to incorporate their unique flair and expertise within “Unstoppable” for an all-new, never-before-heard mix of the track.
 * Ariel Rechtshaid – A Grammy-winning producer, Ariel produced the track, worked with Sia to perfect her vocal delivery, played the majority of the instruments heard in the song, and worked with Pusha T to contribute to the track in his best and most distinct way.
 * Pusha T – A founding member of the seminal rap duo Clipse, Pusha T wrote an original rap that exemplifies Gillette’s campaign and performed it on the track.
 * Olodum – The quintessential Brazilian marching band contributed a Brazilian percussion influence and sound to the track, adding a flair reflective of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

 “When I was working on “Unstoppable” I wanted to write a sports anthem; the kind of song played before a big game to get the players pumped,” said Sia, award-winning singer and songwriter. “As I learned more about Gillette’s “Pretty Isn’t Perfect” campaign supporting the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, this collaboration felt right and this film was a perfect place to unveil this new mix.”

 The Film and accompanying soundtrack seamlessly brings to life Perfect Isn’t Pretty, which represents Gillette’s role as a brand that promises and strives to deliver, and has for over a century, the best razors for 800 million men every day.
 “Perfect Isn’t Pretty captures the gritty truth of an athlete’s journey to the Olympic Games,” explained Francesco Tortora, Gillette Global Brand Director. “Our film and the accompanying soundtrack shows how Olympic athletes directly inspire us as a global brand to keep chasing perfection, no matter how tough the road can be – because it takes the athletes’ best to reach the Olympic Games and our best to create the world’s most precise razor.”

Belstaff X Magnum Accessories Launch

Belstaff introduces a new and complete accessories line inspired by the concept of adventure travel.
Magnum weekend bag

 Iconic British brand Belstaff has linked up with legendary photo agency Magnum Photos on the project. World-renowned photographer and 10 times World Press Photo Winner, Paolo Pellegrin, worked with Belstaff VP Men’s Design, Frederik Dyhr, on the creation of a Belstaff X Magnum camera / kit bag. Pellegrin’s knowledge of what is required in the field led to this modular creation with removable internal sections – which can easily double as a weekender bag for those not out in the field.
Magnum weekend bag in black

The brushed canvas bag is available in sand with cognac hand-waxed leather for a more rugged look, or in black with black hand-waxed leather trims for a more moto-inspired edge.
Magnum’s Pellegrin shot the campaign in action out in the field. Featuring Rein Langeveld, the campaign perfectly embodies the spirit of the collaboration with both brands sharing an independent spirit of adventure and style in motion.
Colonial bag

The campaign also celebrates a Belstaff classic, the Colonial bag (so beloved by Brad Pitt and Will Smith), which has been updated for today’s discerning customer with leather trims, new hardware, an added external back section for easy access and a handle for an alternative way to carry besides cross-body/over-shoulder.
