Why Mono?

posted by on 03/09/2012

Do you like black and white? I do!! There’s something about a black and white picture that when done right i.e composition and lighting just looks simply stunning. I feel that monochrome images are able to portray emotion much better than colour images. There’s beauty in seeing everything that is needed to be seen but only in essentially one colour. Black and white pics are simple yet complex at the same time. Peep this short video from filmmaker Callum Preston entitled Why Mono?. It aims to understand why people still have this affinity with black and white pictures, why is it still so popular? Oh how I do love a bit of black and white :)

Farrell Autumn/Winter Collection Launch

posted by on 01/09/2012

Who would have thought a menswear label started up by Robbie Williams would actually look this good? The Take That singer founded the company as a side project to his musical career a few years back and now the British label is going strong into its third year. However Farrell is not just a celebrity venture, it has a story which is integral to its ethos and success so far. Williams takes inspiration from his grand father, Jack Farrell who was a notable dresser, a Stoke-on-Trent native (didn’t know folks in Stoke dressed up hah), who lived a hard life but lived it well. A strong man, Jack believed in honesty, integrity, good manners and a sense of honour. That’s exactly what the brand stands for as a tribute to his legacy, and to make quality clothing for the everyday man. More on the reverse.
