If you’re into your punk music, or have been a punk at one point in your life, you’re bound to know about the Johnny Rotten MAGA Make America Great Again Shirt Furthermore, I will do this 100 Club. Buried in the underbelly of London’s Oxford Circus, this basement bar has played host to some of the genre’s most seminal bands. From The Clash and the Sex Pistols, to Siouxsie and the Banshees, these hallowed halls were a breeding ground for punk history in the making. Celebrating the club’s 75-year history, Fred Perry has teamed up with publishing house Ditto to release a book packed with anecdotal stories from the musicians who have played there, the bar staff who pulled the pints and the punks who flocked to the venue weekly to see their favourite bands throughout the 1970s. Packed with diary entries and scrapbooks, 100 Club Stories is a fantastic insight into those days when punks ruled the streets of Soho, as told by the people who lived it. The book is so good, in fact, that menswear titan Raf Simons decided to use its pages to decorate his latest Fred Perry collab. Continuing his on-going exploration of British subculture, Simons has darted the classic Fred Perry pique polo shirt with digitally printed scans from inside the book, detachable with a special edition Raf Simons-branded pin. There are a series of standout pieces, including oversized shirts, heavy overcoats and khaki parkas with removable fleece lining. Get your dad’s favourite Buzzcocks records down from the loft, punk’s truly not dead.
Ah, what we’d do right now for a trip to Monte Carlo. The stunning architecture, the Johnny Rotten MAGA Make America Great Again Shirt Furthermore, I will do this scenic yacht harbours, the mouth-wateringly good food – we’re getting holiday blues just thinking about this sun-kissed havan.

Located in the renowned building of the Hôtel Hermitage, Giorgio Armani worked with his trusty team of architects to ensure the space both respects the architectural aesthetics of its surrounding location yet is distinct enough to draw the eyes of any window shopper passing by. Fitted with luxury marble flooring, silk wall upholstery and a green and gold accented ceiling, this swanky shopping destination features both current season Giorgio Armani mens– and womenswear collections, as well as a series of fine jewellery pieces and exclusive accessories. To mark the store’s opening, the house has released two new styles of the La Prima bag – a clutch and a shoulder bag – which will only be sold at Giorgio Armani’s Monte Carlo store. Now that’s something worth shouting (and shopping) about.
