It is the season for cricket sweaters, madras, and those Margot Tennebaum style shirt dresses sans fur coat. We have an interview with Stuart Graham from Scottish menswear designer Lyle & Scott, whose spring collection is channeling a retro sport feel:
Describe the inspiration behind your Spring/Summer 09 collections?
The Spring/Summer 09 Vintage range has carefully chosen reference points from our 80’s sportswear heritage with an Americana twist. The vibrant colours were influenced by primary Pop Art Brights.

Heritage is geared for the man who requires a considered, preppy, but classic look. Club Range is ideal for a fashion-conscious Golfer. my-wardrobe stocks the Vintage Collection, which offers its consumers a bold, confident, edgy and independent look.
