Clash plays catch up with the week’s most fashionable headlines (or something to that effect).

The debut fragrance by Meadham Kirchhoff has been announced as ‘Tralala’, a collaborative scent with the perfumers Penhaligon's.

Edward Meadham and Benjamin Kirchhoff have used the house nine times previously, scenting their show space and notes with its fragrances. “We do not have a signature but rather a handwriting,” the paid said of the news. “We like to tell stories in different ways.”

Tralala launches on the 21st April exclusively in Harvey Nichols, and on the 5th May in Penhaligon's stores.


Designer and artist Aitor Throup has been appointed as Creative Director of Damon Albarn’s first solo album, creating visuals for both Albarn’s videos and album artwork.

While news of ‘Everyday Robots’ came earlier this week, Throup has said of his contribution, “It's a sort of individual statement on the loss of individuality through technology, done in a way that at the same time not only embraces it, but is dependent on it.”

Throup shot the seated portrait that fronts the album.


And on Tuesday Alexander McQueen’s sister label McQ released its SS14 campaign.

Shot in London by Steven Klein, the eight images show former Clash face Edward Kasisopa alongside Frank Le Bon, Declan Cullen, Sean Semmens, Arwel, Ine Neefs and Brogan Loftus.

Kept neutral for the most part, two standout shots show Le Bon’s face made up with face paint like a clown.
