As seen in Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabbana and Ermenegildo Zegna, monochromatic designs and bomber jackets are making a comeback in SS21 streetwear – and RAW WAR’s new ‘’RICHTER’’ collection combines these two trends with bold prints and strong silhouettes.
———-


RAW WAR is an Australian Streetwear brand, founded and directed by Antoinette Wedia Raphael. The brand is based on the creative and quirky side of the creative director Antoinette. RAW WAR plays with the concept of androgynous and quirky fashion using oversized silhouettes, bold and graphic prints, saturated colour palettes, and subverted manipulation of fabrics and construction.
‘RICHTER by RAW WAR’, is based on the Creative Director’s experience of an earthquake during her travels in Greece. Her experience inspired her to reflect on the existence of these natural disasters and how it affected her. A visual element Raphael uses to reflect earthquakes is the Richter scale recordings of sharp lines that adorn the garments, both plain and inclusive of the brand’s strong name. Selected garments in the collection include a seasonal version of the brand’s logo, drawn up with Richter scale recordings, also. These Richter scale recordings and lines have been placed on charcoal, cloudy tones of grey cotton twill to set a melancholy mood, reflecting on the unpredicted nature of these natural disaster.

Looking forward to hearing from you

A stylish, collectable 500g Stilton Jar. This jar comes in Paxton’s classic cream and grey with gold lettering, elegant bevelled detailing and a tactile gloss finish. It is hand-filled with a generous portion of the ‘King of Cheeses’ that is creamy with a pleasant herby tang. The cheese is delicious enjoyed with Paxton’s Cornish Buttermilk Biscuit or some crusty bread, and a glass of Paxton’s Vintage Port or Monbazillac. Once all the cheese has gone the jar can be kept as a keepsake.

Quicke’s Clothbound British Cheddar Truckle (£45.00) www.paxtonandwhitfield.co.uk/detail/index/sArticle/1153/sCategory/114
These beautiful, artisan, clothbound Cheddar Truckles are the ultimate festive season must-have and are new to our range for Christmas 2020; supporting a stalwart of the British artisan cheese making industry.

Each one is a small, 1.8kg version of a vast 26kg Traditional Westcountry Farmhouse Cheddar.

Our Christmas batch of Cheddar Truckles were handmade in July 2020 with bright and lush summer milk. The Quickes farm is based in rural Devon and the grass that the cows eat is incredibly good quality. These miniature clothbound, whole cheddars have been expertly matured for the optimal flavour profile ready to enjoy in December.

The truckles offer a rich and buttery cheddar that offers outstanding depth of flavour; from brothy to grassy to caramel notes.

Made by the award-winning Quickes family in the South West of England.

Steve Diamond sets out top four ambitions ahead of new Premiership Rugby season

As part of an exclusive Sale Sharks Business Club event, Sharks Director of Rugby Steve Diamond revealed his targets for the Manchester-club ahead of the new season launch this week

The event was sponsored by club partner, C&C Insurance, and the Sharks coach was joined for the live viewing by club captain Jono Ross, Faf De Klerk and Sam James

Sale Sharks’ Director of Rugby, Steve Diamond says his side will be targeting a top four finish after narrowly missing out on the Premiership Rugby play offs in September.

Speaking during Sale Sharks Business Club’s first ever virtual event, the Sharks boss was joined by South African World Cup winner Faf de Klerk, club captain Jono Ross and club centre, Sam James to discuss their hopes for the new season ahead of their curtain raiser against Northampton Saints at the AJ Bell Stadium.

Reflecting on the previous campaign, Diamond revealed his hope that it would spur them onto greater success: “I think all of our players should be proud of their performance last season and we are hoping to emulate the same combative displays we became a custom to last year.”

On his ambitions for the 2020/21 campaign, he added: “We will be taking every game as it comes, but we have to be ambitious and be thinking like a top-four side with the squad we have, and the coaching set up we have in place. Once you’re in that top four, it’s a different competition all together.”

Turning attention to his squad, Diamond revealed two potential signings as well as support from academy players could be used to add to the roster.

“Current statistics show we produce more Premiership players than any other club and I think that figure will continue to improve. We have a fantastic crop of talent in both the forwards and the backs and I would have no qualms starting any of our academy lads next week if I had too.

“We are however looking at a near seven-foot lock to ease the loss of Lood de Jager and potentially another international back row to come in to add to our selection options too.”

Despite missing Tom Curry due to international duty with England, Diamond made no secret of the benefits Sharks will reap over South Africa’s decision to not participate in the Rugby Championship.

“I’m sure it will have been disappointing for a number of our South African players, but if I’m honest it wasn’t so disappointing for me. It’s been a real boost for us to have these guys around over pre-season and allow them some proper rest. We would have probably had to go four to five games without a lot of our players otherwise.”

The event, sponsored by C&C Insurance, also featured messages from Sharks’ latest partners including principal sponsor VST Enterprises, cyber protection partner, Acronis, and women’s team shirt sponsor BOL Foods.

Attended virtually by Sale Sharks’ partners, it marked the first of a series of virtual events from the club for its Business Club, which will offer exclusive insight into the running of the club and interviews with senior players.

Sid Sutton, the club’s newly appointed CEO, also appeared live to comment on the club’s plans for the future, stressing the need for the club to secure its own stadium in the future.

The Sharks CEO said: “We need a new home, and that’s a top priority for me and the board. Having a place to call our own would benefit not only the players, but also the fans with an enhanced matchday experience.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has clearly had a huge impact on rugby, and Sharks are no exception to that, however we’ve attracted a number of corporate partners from the UK and internationally, who will play a key role in supporting our top four aims this season.”
