MR PORTER and director Mr Matthew Vaughn have created a bespoke collection from Ms Arianne Phillips’ costume design for Kingsman. The focus is on British heritage, with cloths sourced from traditional mills and hand-picked collaborations with classic brands.
It is not often that you get blown away by a new fragrance. At StylePilot we’ve tried the Golden Serenade by JUSBOX. We fell in love with its strong body, its unique notes of pure oud oil, amber and saffron.
This extrait de parfum is a unique fragrance. Wearing it is a real statement itself.
It is inspired by the first gold record that was awarded to Glenn Miller and his band in 1942 for the sales of 1 million records.
THE JUSBOX PERFUMES BRAND
Jusbox is an exclusive range of perfumes whose concept is based on the similarity between perfume and music. Music is indeed the key inspiration for all their fragrances.
Music and Perfume share a similar and extraordinary power: intensely and yet involuntarily they both have the ability to bring back the most hidden emotions and memories. A smell that marked a specific moment in your life comes back and suddenly makes unforgettable memories re-emerge. In the same way, hearing a song that meant so much to you instantly touches your soul, recalling moments you thought you had forgotten.
It is no coincidence that music and perfume both speak the common language of notes. The perfumer, just like the musician, plays notes and accords to compose superb and touching harmonies. Sometimes the language of perfumery may appear difficult and hard to decode and this is why Jusbox makes use of the language of music, usually more familiar, in order to make everyone clearly understand the true essence of its perfumes.
A COLLECTION OF NOTES
Icons Collection takes its inspiration from musical and generational icons emerging from social, historic, cultural and artistic contexts, lending their voice to the messages, emotions, ideas and trends of their times.
Genres Collection interprets the characteristic rhythm, the emotional force, character and historical and cultural background of a musical genre. Musical genres are the soul of a nation, of generations and social and political movements and are indelibly ingrained within us.
Music Matters is inspired by the benefits that both music and perfume can have on our soul. It doesn’t matter which genre, music has the power to inspire multiple responses – physiological, emotional, cognitive and behavioural – at a very personal level. In the same way, scents can be used to enhance and improve our well being, thanks to the aromatherapy effects of its ingredients.
Everything in the world of Jusbox is ispired by music, even the packaging. The squared, modern, elegant, ergonomic bottle is a 78 ml to pay homage to the first phonographic disc that was 78 rpm. On its top, the cap celebrates the most well known auditory mean in the history of music: the vinyl. The rigid soft touch box is similar as shape and opening to a CD box. Inside you will find a leaflet that explains the inspiration and mood of each perfume.
A GREAT CHRISTMAS idea?
Just stumbled upon that (old) collaboration that we really liked at StylePilot. Since Timex and Red Wing Shoes are the very definition of American Heritage, we just thought we could publish those and have them in our archives.
You can still shop the Waterbury collection at Timex.
What made Red Wing Shoes Company the perfect partner for Timex is that each product is handmade and built to perform and outlast. Red Wing have more than a century of experience behind them, with their brand history and heritage.
Starting as the Waterbury Clock Company in Connecticut, 1854, Timex launched the collection of the same name to celebrate their 160th anniversary as an authentic watchmaker, using designs from the brand’s vast archives as inspiration.
Timex X Red Wing Shoes featured three unique timepieces, including one chronograph, with sleek black faces set against silver cases to perfectly show off the Red Wing Shoes leather straps.
About Red Wing Shoes Company
Red Wing Shoes was founded in Red Wing, Minnesota in 1905 and is built on the principle of manufacturing footwear that represents the American ideals of prosperous work and excellence. The straps used on The Waterbury feature leather tanned at Red Wing Shoe’s subsidiary, S.B. Foot Tanning Company, which is also located in Red Wing Minnesota.

Founded as part of the Timex Group in 1954, Timex became known for their durable, unpretentious watch designs at affordable prices, with the classic, simple styles creating timeless, wearable pieces for each and every customer. Now being reintroduced into the UK market, the heritage brand’s fashion forward pieces are the perfect addition to work and weekend wardrobes, with a huge range of watches to suit any style – so all customers can ‘Wear It Well’.

This November, River Island debuts an exclusive collaboration with multi-platinum selling artist Olly Murs, combining affordable luxury with contemporary wardrobe staples. Olly Murs x River Island channels Murs’ flair for understated cool in to a fourteen-piece collection of premium tops, trousers, outerwear and tailoring; realising his creative vision through luxe textures and rich colour, underpinned by bold geometric print.
In Olly’s own words: “I have always loved clothes, but for me to do a fashion collaboration, it had to be authentic and River Island seemed like the perfect fit. The brand has always been close to my heart and my earliest memories of payday shopping with my mates at the local store in Essex make this collaboration all the more personal to me. I was fully immersed in the design process to ensure that every piece was true to my style. I have loved every minute of it and I can’t wait to share the collection with my fans.”
Elegant day-to-night dressing and is core to the smart-casual aesthetic of the range. The bronze Harrington jackets and single-breasted dinner jacket are lightly structured, cut from butter-soft velvet and just as easily paired with a premium cotton tee or a fitted turtleneck. The slim fit and narrow notch lapels of the check single breasted suit is complimented by modern styling, teaming trainers with a lightweight knit.
Luxurious, fine gauge knitwear is a signature Olly Murs look. Block panel crew-neck knits in icy blue and rich brown are statement pieces in the range, offset by the understated elegance of the merino wool polos in the range in black and mustard, an essential weekend look when layered with the ice blue overcoat tailored trousers in houndstooth, black or check.
Arresting prints offset the muted chic of the other separates in the range. Two unique styles in bold chevron and geometric print in icy blue and cool grey are applied to louche viscose shirts. The voluminous drape of the shirting compliments the sharp, clean lines of tailored trousers, completing the look with crisp white trainers or tie-bar leather loafers.
Olly Murs x River Island is available at riverisland.com and in selected stores.
