Liam refines his patch work track suiting while also unveiling the brand's first foray into denim, with a selection of washes and styles. Ultimately acting as a new focus for the designer. This season also sees him build new celebrations, with his customised carry accessories being made by Côte&Ciel. Other parts of the collection feature legendary Italian sports brand - FILA. Liam utilises FILA's distinctive colour blocking aesthetic, including a take on his very own trademark jerseys. Also featured in the collection are FILA's 'Original Fitness' sneaker, a style that has been with the brand since 1987 that has been reimagined with a "mad texture" and Liam Hodges and FILA dual branding.
Liam has also taken inspiration directly from FILA's first creative director Pierluigi Rolano, and his interest in American iconography. Liam also plays to his stitching techniques with a feature pinstripe detail synonymous with the FILA brand. Other traces of FILA's legacy can be found in Liam's flat lock stitching detail which references the classic FILA Settanta Mark 3 jacket which was worn by the tennis legend Bjorn Borg in the 70's.
Liam's SS18 collection keeps the integrity and important of being open to new ways of "mashing it up!". Refining the designer as a staple in the LFWM schedule.

The young woman who is the sitter, with bobbed black hair accentuating her oval face, is unknown. Both the background and her clothing are in dark tones, projecting her warm pink face forwards. The same sitter appears in another portrait by Modigliani of the same year, La servetta seduta (The seated servant girl). The shade of the dress suggests winter, especially since the ‘marinière,’ or “French Riviera Style,” which was adopted by the children of upper-class Parisians and Londoners who visited the Côte d’Azur, was characterized by its light colors. The mild androgyny and abstraction of the figure exemplify Modigliani’s constant need to transfer the unconscious, and the mystery of human instinct onto canvas. The anatomical elongation which, beginning in the second half of the 1910s, characterizes his work, is indicative of his previous experience as a sculptor, and of the influence then of African and Oriental art. The canvas, with the title La femme en blouse marine, was exhibited in the artist’s solo show, organized in December 1917 by his dealer Léopold Zborowski at the Parisian gallery of Berthe Weill. Paintings of female nudes in the window caused a scandal, and the show closed prematurely. In 1917, the painting was bought by Paul Guillaume and shown only rarely after this, at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Bruxelles in 1933 and at Kunsthalle Basel in 1934, before entering the Toso collection in Venice in 1952. Since that time, it has been exhibited in Milan, Rome, Padua, Verona, Venice, Ancona, Caserta, and Turin, and the Italian State has listed the Toso Modigliani in recognition of its high artistic and historic value.
In 2016 EFG supported the conservation of Pablo Picasso’s masterpiece The Studio (L’Atelier) in the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and continues its support with this important conservation intervention.
With this project EFG reaffirms its support of the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of Venice. The collaboration began in 2001 with the bank BSI, now acquired by and incorporated into EFG, the international banking group specialized in private banking and asset management. With this conservation project, EFG consolidates the collaboration, signaling that its support of art is not only through its collection of contemporary art but also through its participation in specific projects that cultivate and advance the growth of a community’s cultural patrimony.

￼“I stay in a lot of hotels, but one of my favourite and most refreshing experiences was actually in a hostel in Florence”, recalls Charlie MacGregor, founder and CEO of The Student Hotel. “The beauty of a hostel is that everything is much less formal. People talk to each other, everyone talks to everyone and it’s very refreshing. You don’t have the opportunity to make great friends and great connections in five star hotels.”
The Student Hotel stands for open-minded and forward thinking individuals who not only follow their goals in life and career but also commit themselves in helping to make the world a little bit better. The concept of the Hotel supports people of different environments, cultures and traditions to understand and appreciate peace and respect heterodox and differently thinking and loving people. Charlie MacGregor, The Student Hotel’s founder and CEO, explains: “We have redefined accommodation for travellers and students. Amsterdam City, like all of our properties, is a beautiful environment that feels relaxed and unlike any other hotel. [...] People want an alternative to the traditional hotel, guests who want to feel enlivened by their environment, inspired by who they see and meet. Amsterdam City is our concept for travelling, living, working, studying and connecting socially.”
￼￼In addition to the extensive co-working spaces there are common areas with TED Talk booths, games rooms, library, and an underground bicycle park housing 600 Van Moof designer bikes available to ￼￼guests.
Charlie and his team have created an innovative proposition designed to offer high quality ￼￼accommodation, vibrant co-living and co-working spaces in the heart of European cities, with rooms available to students, entrepreneurs and travellers who can check in for a night, a week, a month or a ￼￼year.
We’re glad we were there and... The Student Hotel, thanks for sleeping with us too.
