It takes almost 1800 gallons of water to produce a pair of jeans. If we physically saw that wastage, I'm sure many of us would get a nasty shock at actually how much of an impact it has on the environment. To paint the picture a little clearer, an average bath is 36 gallons, so that's around 50 baths. That just sounds ridiculous.

Yes the world is changing fast. It's obvious that digital innovation operates on a more accelerated timetable than the time it takes to change laws and regulations. But is that a good enough reason to place technologists and innovators in the driving seat? What kind of a society will they create? What kind of politics will 'disruptive innovations' introduce?

Bags don't necessarily demand a live show or presentation, I guess, and a presenting a film is a chance to carefully control the branding of the erm, brand. Already stocked at Net-a-porter, Harrods, Selfridges amongst others, I bet they'll sell bags of bags!

During the presentations at Elms Lesters Painting Rooms there was time to be consumed by the building and the designer's visual storytelling. Not having show notes to read through while sitting, waiting for a show to start means no advance intro to the clothing and seasonal theme, however a presentation offers less pretence and puts the experience above all else.

Brooke Roberts-Islam

I thought of a dozen more questions I'd like to ask Hussein after I left the Chalayan studio, but will patiently add them to a filed list, neatly in keeping with Hussein's penchant for filing ideas, notes and sketches for a later date. But let it not be a decade or more before I have the chance to ask them.

Given the years of hype around the idea of their smartwatch, it would have been all too easy for Apple to just stick a sixth-generation iPod Nano on an overpriced wrist strap and be done with it. Instead, the Cupertino-based company has given its Apple Watch a nifty way of gliding through menus, a healthy slew of supported apps and crammed it with more sensors than a North Korean game show.
