Treated myself to a new watch yesterday. I'd become one of those annoying people who constantly has to dig a mobile out of their cavernous bag to tell the time. Durrrr. I bought a nice green watch from Oasis in the summer but my son dismantled it within seconds (he's old enough to know better,...

Manufactured in Billiam's HQ of Hackney, these sons-of-guns boast a range of drill cottons, military prints and Merino wool trimmins. Best part, however: each one is reversible, meaning, for instance, the sharp navy jacket insides-out into a vintage-looking marsh camouflage jacket. From a...

There was a slight but very noticeable absence of ODLR at the Golden Globes this year, but maybe the celebs are waiting for the Academy Awards next month to bring out the big guns – watch this space! We digress. The ads – which were beautifully shot by Craig McDean and expertly styled by...

We love to play games and watch awful movies. I say awful because my son insisted we watch Sharknado 1 & 2. It turned into a ridiculous marathon. He wants to watch it again now and I'm like WHY?! In addition to your blog, how can The Beauty of Life readers find you on social media? You can...

For more of the designer, watch his interview with about his son Jack, and watch the video below for his slightly ironic views on materialism:

What do you like to do with your son? I like watching him create things. I like when he tells me about the things he makes a draws and the reasons behind it all. I love how he writes things, even though the spelling is wrong. It's so nice to just see him enjoy and see him enjoy the...
