All the culture you need to know about, from the Oscars to the return of Jose Gonzalez and Paul Smith's new exhibitionMore
After releasing its menswear concept book Menswear Illustrations earlier this year, publishers Thames & Hudson and author Richard Kilroy have teamed up with Paul Smith for a celebratory exhibition of these images, which launches at the brand’s Albermarle Street store today until the first week of March.
Featuring illustrations from the likes of Jean-Philippe Delhomme to Ricardo Fumanal, the show is a must for anyone with an interest in menswear and the creative process.

Remember that Sony Bravia advert with all of those coloured balls bouncing down the street in slow motion? Remember the song? “Mumble, mumble, something, we were in love”? Great wasn’t it?
Well, it’s been nine years since Jose Gonzalez burst into our living room with his cover of the Swedish electro classic, and in that time he’s only released one album (In Our Nature, 2007). Now, he’s finally got his guitar in tune for a new LP, Vestiges and Claws, led by the upbeat hand-clapper ‘Leaf Off/The Cave’. Dare we say, it’s almost danceable.
