Patrick Grant has done a tremendous job with Savile Row’s E. Tautz and the proof is in the results, as the label’s Spring 2012 collection was recently showcased at London Fashion Week. The label’s known to mix classic English sensibility with edge and wit. The pieces are simple at heart, beautifully handmade, and playful as well. The inspiration behind this season’s offerings comes from the 1924 Paris Olympics, Oxford rowers as well as a thing or two from Felix Carvajal, the marathon running postman.
As part of this week’s Salon Show, Oliver Spencer unveiled his Spring 2012 collection on the runway and we love what we’ve seen from the British label. For S/S 2012, Spencer took inspiration from French mod style, infused a good amount of color and added a few pieces made from jersey material as well.
Killer Elite stars Jason Statham, Clive Owen and Robert De Niro, giving us an all-star cast in this action-packed flick. It’s been quite sometime since we last saw a lineup of this caliber and coupling that with this well-produced story line will surely make for a cloud-pleaser. We’re huge fans of all three actors which we think is reason enough to buy a ticket. So here’s the rundown — Killer Elite pits two operatives, Statham and De Niro, against a leader of a secret military society, played by Owen. It’s an international game of cat and mouse and we really can’t wait to see how it all pans out.
The movie is in theaters now nationwide and we’ve got the official trailer plus a clip of the opening scene below to give you a hint of what’s to come.
Rolex’s HTE series of watches adds two more pieces to close out the collection. The 39mm and 42mm celebrate the achievements of the children of Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, two famed explorers known to be the first to reach the summit of Mt. Everest back in 1953. The 39mm congratulates Sir Edmund and his son Peter as the first father and son duo to reach the summit while the 42mm sheds light on Peter and Jamling Tenzing Norgay summiting Everest. Select HTE buyers will also get a once in a lifetime opportunity to join Peter Hillary and Jamling Tenzing Norgay on their expedition to Everest Basecamp in May 2012. Big shoes to fill but we’re hoping they succeed in moving their fathers’ legacies forward.

This leather travel bag from Simon Spurr is one of the finest we’ve ever seen and we mean it. Personally, I’ve always been a fan of the black and gold combination and pairing the bag’s black shell with gold accents just takes it next level. It features two handles, golden zips and hardware, a padlock, an internal laptop or document sleeve, and an embossed Simon Spurr logo on the outside.
