Yesterday I was invited down the to new Bentall Centre located in Kingston.. where they gave me a collection of things for all you “lovely” boys out there. If you want to grab yourself a new scarf from Austin Reed, and tie/cuff links from TM Lewin all you need to do is subscribe to this blog via email up in the right hand corner for a chance to win and send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm… or leave a comment on this blog post! And lets face it.. who really wants to buy cuff links?
Usually I would advise staying as far away from anything that David Cameron wears as you can. So when the press girl proceeded to tell me that he was an avid fan of TM Lewin’s clothing I almost disappeared into switch off mode. But she had a friendly eager face.. so I found myself asking more about the brand. A few things I found out is that TM Lewin is a a family orientated brand taken over by director and CEO Jeff Quinn.. currently working with charities such as the Princes Trust – apparently it has had no redundancies in the the recession and has a huge dedication with regards to fair trade. *Strokes chin* hmmmm interesting.. FYI: this is just what I was told…
We then headed on to Oliver Bonas who sells original quirky items. Pictured below.. Umbrella £15
One of the shops that stood out at the Bentall Centre – and which is worth a visit is the store Yumi. It creates a lot of its clothes in Japan and Korea – arguably the most fashionable countries in the world… my winter coat is Korean actually. Which makes me very fashionable.
I then went on to the Hyper Japan Event based in Earls Court.. here are a few pictures of the best dressed!
