Mark Thomas Taylor's Funky Edge And Style Rhythm For Spring/Summer 2012
Mark Thomas Taylor SS12
The Mark Thomas Taylor (MTT) signature is built around Asian flair. Each season has its own colour, but MTT offers colours that transcend the seasons. Understated and effortlessly cool, each piece has quiet detailing and simple strength.

The launch collection features shirts and denims. Shirts go Thai, traditional fabrics and colours looking stylish yet restrained. T's and vests are super-soft washed, hugging your body with love. 

Premium Denim slim fit jeans are offered in a range of finishes, from raw unwashed to distressed grey; dirty-washed skinny fits complete the range.

The colour palette runs from hot to cool, with bright fuschia pinks and lime greens at one end and warm purples and indigo at the other, offset with neutral greys and navy, and a touch of emerald green.

Mark T Taylor waxes  lyrical about eponymous label. "i want people to smile when they look at my clothes." A philosophy of personal happiness underlines MTT's approach to style, life and work. "I love to celebrate life, and I hope my clothes express this."  Says Mark T. Taylor. 


Dateline: 6.12.2011
Location: Covent Garden, London.

'The Murdock Man' - The Man Who Is Himself, Comfortable, Stylish And Feeds Off His Natural Good looks.
'The Murdock Man' This Month Is David Waddington.

To the Murdock store on Monmouth Street, to celebrate the, the new website from Murdock London.

The December edition is full of good things, just like the store itself. Each edition will feature 'THE' Murdock Man, the first being Mr David Waddington, proprietor of the Bistrotheque restaurant in Hackney, and looking elegant and relaxed by the fireplace. There are also tips on good barbering, and an appreciation of tweed.

The site has sections on culture, grooming, food and drink, and sports. It's a grown-up playground for the man who isn't afraid to look his best.

Which brings us back to the Covent Garden store. If ever a shop was small but perfectly formed, this is it. The ground floor offers grooming products and colognes, apparel and travel gear, and a solo barber chair. On the upstairs mezzanine, there is a discreet two-seater barbershop, gleaming with cut-glass mirrors and light wood. 

The downstairs mezzanine is a book-lined snug, with playing-card wallpaper and comfortable chairs for a little browsing through the graphic works of Peter Doig. The store is beautifully laid out, warm and tranquil, and the staff exemplary.

Whether you browse on-line, or visit the store for a shave and trim, Murdock LONDON is a name to add to your vade mecum.
