Congratulations to Daft Punk for their well deserved Grammy wins last night. The robotic masters bagged five awards on the night including the two biggest prizes 'Record' and 'Album' of the Year. Dean shot Daft Punk for NME during 2013, the images were released to coincide with the launch of the electronic duos amazing album 'Random Access Memories' you can get it here.

Daft Punk are seldom (like virtually never) seen without their helmets, ...we bet you wish you could see the frame after the one below hey... But we wouldn't want to show you all the roboty insides that lay beneath their shiny exterior, so the mystique must remain... They are truly out of this world though aren't they?

Steve McQueen Exhibition

Steve McQueen was of course a massive film star, but he was a style Icon too. We thought it was only right to tell you about an exhibition that has been created in his honour "I live for myself and I answer to nobody" Comprises of photography from the legendary Barry Feinstein (you can see one through the cars window above), The Mustang car (above) from the film Bullet, Motor bikes clothing etc, also there is a section of items that have been influenced by Steve McQueen.

It is all very good and free to enter. Here is a great interview from the Huffington Post, and for even more info on the show click here...One word of advice though, when visiting the exhibition take a big coat it is on the 3rd floor of Brewer Street Car Park and it is cold.

London Collections: Mens was a great success packed days of shows, meetings and exciting new outfits to see about town. The centre of London was peppered with striking people dashing from place to place, day and night the catwalks boomed and the parties rolled.

Dean went to the packed early morning Agi & Sam show in Bloomsbury on Wednesday. It took place on the last day of the events.  Here is a list of all the shows.

Harris Elliott acted as creative director to this show (also the Mr.Hare presentation in our previous post) Gary Powell was commisioned to provide the soundtrack for the show. Gary conducted 4 live drummers that morning, the ex-Libertines drummer is a very experienced composer and has provided many scores for films and fashion shows.
