Lee Paton (Twitter - @Lee_Paton) introduced the world to his new AW 2012/13 collection last night, and we were granted exclusive access backstage to capture the event in all of its glory.
Guests were greeted by the lovely chaps of Hendricks Gin, who had created some very tasty cocktails especially for the night. As we awaited the opening of the show room, a video of Captain Scott (who the show was themed around), played on a wall. The party was in full swing, and the best bit was still to come.
With the opening of the show doors, a slightly merry (thanks Hendricks) crowd filled the room, and the show began. Patrick Wolf opened it with an accapella folk song written using Captain Scott's last words, and continued into a requiem Patrick wrote for his expedition. A moving tribute to a great British legend, and a tear could be seen on the biggest bears in the room.
As the music continued the model's took to the catwalk. Lee presented us with a collection that we can only admire. Using his trademark love for taxidermy accessories, there were flashes of white pigeon, horn buttons, rabbit mitts, and some cheeky fox ear-muffs. Never have we been delighted by every outfit on a catwalk, but Lee did just that. It was a show to behold, and it was polished off with more gin inspired cocktails, and cupcakes.
Roll on the next collection we say, and watch out London Fashion Week as there is a new kid in town and he is coming to stuff you.

American Physco, especially the scene when Patrick Bateman and his friends are comparing business cards. The expense that the chaps went into getting their business cards embossed or gold printed is fascinating. However, imagine if they had pulled out some carbon fibre business cards! The looks of admiration and envy would be brilliant!
Well we have found just that card in the form of CARDISSIMO. Each card is made from a single sheet of special carbon fibre, and features the owner’s choice of graphics, lettering, colour and graphic design. As a result each card is individual and unique to its owner.
Harrod's for an exclusive tour of the new Ralph Lauren department. The new space is the biggest in Europe, and as the lovely buyer stated 'Every aspect of the new department had been considered to hero the Ralph Lauren brand'. It is certainly impressive, and we particularly loved the extra merchandising touches from polo sticks, to cricket balls and vintage bags.

Lee's much anticipated show is on Thursday the 29th March 2012, and is inspired by the centenary of Captain Scott's legendary, but ill-fated expedition to the South Pole. With Hendrick's Gin (Twitter - @HendricksGinUK) already crafting some new cocktails in honour of the show, and Patrick Wolf (Twitter - @_Patrick_Wolf) performing on the night with his string quartet, this is going to be one not to miss. To Lee and Captain Scott we salute you and your endeavours.
Jeremiah Weed into my life. The craft chaps at Jeremiah have made two very unique brews:
- Jeremiah Weed Root Brew, brewed with a hint of ginger
- Jeremiah Weed Sour Mash Brew, brewed with a hint of bourbon

I have a found memories of Storm, as I remember receiving my first one on my 18th birthday. Seeing them go from strength to strength is a great thing, with the UK marketplace so tough over the years. I especially love their limited edition pieces, including the new Trilogy, which is limited to 3,000 pieces worldwide. Although the Nesis (below) is also pretty darn cyber cool!

Ollie Webb is set to become a big name in the world of Motor Racing. Over the past few years he has been working his way up the racing trail, and Topman's Generation Magazine caught up with him off the race track for an exclusive Interview and photo shoot. The in-depth interview explores how an enthusiastic nine-year-old go cart racer has turned into one of the brightest young stars of international racing, destined to be one of the stars of formula one, and we like his accessories too.
Tatty Devine has partnered up with another accessory store to sell its range.
Accessories Online the on-trend e-tailer that sells a host of exciting jewellery brands is now proud to be retailing the new Tatty Devine range, including our favourite Dinosaur necklace. Did you know that fifty bones make up the dinosaur's body, which hangs from a hand-beaded strand of seed beads, and that It's reversible!? Well neither did we, but we do now, so can sleep well at night.... Unless T-Rex is one of our bed bugs.

RABBIT SILK BOW TIE, and how lovely it is. First of all the packaging and bow tie bag were a real surprise. Then came the actual bow, which had been crafted from the most beautiful red silk and gold.
