If you are looking something to do this weekend, there is one thing that is NOT to be missed, the Westfield Music Cube.

The pioneering experience at Westfield Stratford City is a live, immersive music experience that is revolutionising the way people listen to live music. Imagine a live silent disco – the acts perform in a sound proof box and the audience on the outside listen to it live through connected headphones – headphones that are provided by Sennhieser URBANITE.

The Music Cube is happening from 31 October – 2 November – Get involved, people!

I was lucky enough to have the chance to head down to the private launch party to experience the Music Cube for myself, so I invited my friend Brad to join me for the evening.

“When you don’t talk, there’s a lot of stuff that ends up not getting said.” – Catherine Gilbert Murdock

I know what you’re thinking – “Well, DUH!”

But yet it is amazing how many people speak to me about something not happening in their lives, or someone not behaving in a way that was expected, just for them to say to me, that they haven’t actually said anything out loud to anyone to instigate change.

I honestly could go on about this for ages as I think it filters into so many aspects of our lives – I believe one of our biggest sins as people is we do not talk enough. We have so many taboos and so much is un-PC that true feelings are never shared and explored and instead we harbour ill feelings and regrets for the foreseeable future.

What are you not talking about?

I’ve been having fun with my sportswear looks recently. It’s a style that I think really works with someone of my frame, with broad shoulders.

I love this new Nicce London jersey shirt. The curved hem and squared shoulder work well on my shape, and the long hem sitting under the Religion jacket makes the look totally nonchalant.

I’ve grounded the look with my staple Nudie Jeans and my favourite Nike iD Flyknits while I’m toting the Forbes & Lewis Devon backpack.

What do you guys thinks? Are you a fan of sportswear looks?

His star is on the rise since his turn in blockbuster The Hobbit and now Hollywood heartthrob Luke Evans is on the promo tour for his latest lead role in Dracula Untold, the latest reworking of the classic vampire story. As part of his promo tour, Luke stopped off with WWD for a photoshoot and a chat about all things hobbit and fang-tooth related. And the results are great.

The shoot was style by fashion editor Alex Badia with Rodolfo Martinez at the helm of the photography. Talking about his roles and his latest work, Evans says “I’ve been building up roles for six years. This is my 20th-something movie. And they’ve been bigger and bigger and this year I’ve got two of the biggest movies of my career so far. So, you know it’s all going in the right direction.”

It’s a beautiful shoot with Evans wearing some iconic labels including Valentino, Berluti, Tom Ford, Burberry and Mulberry (are you as jealous as I am?). Luke looks great in the whole shoot, man that guys is good looking, lucky git! I do think they have made him look a little older than his 35 years, but not in a bad way and there’s no denying the man’s got genetics on his side. I’m likng the shorter hair on him too, it makes him look masculine, refined and incredibly dapper.

How about a little mid-week pick me up? I give to you, Scott Eastwood for BOSS Hugo Boss’s latest campaign.

The youngest son of Hollywood legend Clint Eastwood, Scott smoulders in the black and white campaign, channeling everything that is old Hollywood hotness with a new and modern aesthetic.

Eastwood covers the ready-to-wear, eyewear and the watches collection in a series of I-can’t-stop-staring images that make you go week at the knees having clearly inherited his father’s looks and charm.

Hugo Boss creative director, Jason Wu says, “I love how much he looks like his father, who is absolutely legendary,’ he said. ‘And he has this classic sensibility that feels completely modern at the same time.”

“It was very important that the first campaign was character-driven,’ said Mr Wu, adding: ‘The idea of Boss menswear is keeping up tradition. Scott is all about channeling old Hollywood.”

The new collection focuses on a series on modern pieces made from quality fabrics and meticulous attention to detail. This is my kind of style – contemporary, minimal with a sense of formality mixed with a casual aesthetic that transcends seasonal trends for timeless appeal.

The campaign was shot by photography duo Inez & Vinoodh and styled by Jo McKenna. It was originally shot in colour but it was during editing that they decided to opt for a more puristic finish in black and white to add character.
