A lot can happen in 50 years. Just ask British photographer Gered Mankowitz, who’s catalogued half a century’s worth of the ever-shifting musical scene — from the Swinging Sixties and Glam Rock Seventies to the New Wave Eighties and beyond. You can soak it all in at London’s Snap Galleries, which is celebrating Gered’s golden jubilee with a retrospective exhibit open till November 2nd. It’s an impressive time warp, where you can spot the famous mugs of rock-and-roll legends including Marianne Faithful, Kate Bush, Jimi Hendrix, Gary Glitter, Duran Duran and The Rolling Stones. Curiously enough, these now-iconic portraits owe a nod to Inspector Jacques Clouseau himself, Peter Sellers; the actor, a family friend, was the one who initially encouraged Gered to pursue photography.

    The fragrance is lovely as well as the design of the bottle. However, I do have complaints about the quality of products. The materials used in apparel as well as shoes is of lesser quality. There is lesser detail and meticulous design. I’ve noticed the boots this season doesn’t have the logo on the soles. The tags on clothes is different and the stitching isn’t that good. I thought I was purchasing knock offs until I went to the Tory Burch store to return some items and make a purchase. Tory, you still make beautiful designs. Stick to the little details and quality that distinguish your designs from the rest—– that which made you a success.
