NEED TO KNOW:
THE OCTOBER ISSUE
Task for this month: be even more stylish than last month. How? That’s easy, our rundown of October has it covered with two amazing collaborations, our handpicked trends and even a bit of Halloween inspiration.
Take your t-shirt cues from the SS15 menswear shows. This upcoming trend draws on retro animations and iconic motifs, as seen at Topman Design, Bobby Abley and Moschino, but you can get the look now with our cartoon-inspired tops.

3. CREEP IT REAL
It might not be until the end of the month, but it’s worth planning your Halloween outfit early. Will you go for a skeleton onesie – think Jake Gyllenhaal in Donnie Darko – or something more subtle, such as Frankenstein socks?

4. BFI FILM FESTIVAL
We all know there are only two types of films worth watching: those with massive war explosions and those about masked psychopathic killers. Luckily the BFI Film festival covers both (and many other lesser known genres, such as drama and comedy and action. Whatever they are).
RUNS FROM 8-19TH OCTOBER

10. NEW BRIGHTON STORE NOW OPEN
Brighton has a rich fashion history. It mainly chronicles dapper mods and grungy rockers kicking each others heads in on the beach, but damn did they look good. So it was inevitable that Topman would open a super store measuring 7,600 sq foot, located in the Churchill Square Shopping Centre. Well what are you waiting for?
