On the inside

Red Ear is the surprisingly under the radar premium denim and clothing line from acclaimed Brit designer Sir Paul Smith. Perhaps it's because you need to turn the clothes inside out to truly appreciate them. Rob reckons the quality and attention to detail is as good as mainline Paul Smith. Either way, inside and outside, we think this season's super cool collection, inspired by the work of the late artist Louise Bourgeois and the director Jean Luc Godard, is deserving of some serious attention.


Tis spring

Squeaky, sweet, clean, fresh, bloomin' spring. Has to be our favourite time of the year at The Hambledon, after Christmas that is!


Look closely

Print takes centre stage at Engineered Garments this season and this great little film gives a flavour of the stripes, checks and Hawaiian styles you can expect. What the camera fails to capture however is the close-up and this is another brilliantly thought through collection, unparalleled on detail and heavy on texture. We strongly recommend a closer look.


Mixing it up

Favourite French label Paul & Joe Sister return to womenswear this week with their wonderfully eclectic style. Gorgeous floral prints get thrown together with broderie anglaise and a touch of tweed. And somehow it all just works.


Papercutting superstars

What a happy day Saturday was. Our Made of Paper pop-up was transformed into a brightly coloured hive of activity with local papercutting artist Eileen White showing us novices how it's done. And if the satisfied smiles were anything to go by, we think it's safe to assume there are some very lovely paper creations hanging proudly at home right now.
