Known for its smart and smart casual menswear, its dashing men's suits, its dalliance with bright colours (and for being regularly worn by British model David Gandy), Duchamp is a great base from which to find menswear staples. We recommend keeping an eye out for Duchamp's heavy mohair waistcoats, patterned shirts and brightly coloured cufflinks.
The Duchamp company was founded in 1989 by Mitchell Jacobs, a former buyer at Browns (one of Culture Whisper's best boutiques) who sought to bring a combination of retro heritage style with forward looking modern flavours and bold colours.
To give you a sense of it's aesthetic, in 2012 it launched a collaboration with students at Edinburgh College of Art based on The Modern Dandy with the maxim: keep it sharp, keep it lively.
Named by Jacobs after the famous French artist, Marcel Duchamp, Jacobs once said: 'Duchamp turned everyday objects into art and I turned everyday icons of men's fashion into wearable art'. Can fashion be art? It's a question currently up for discussion at Harvey Nichols, but if you'd rather find out for yourself, head over to Mayfair.
