A Crazy Gospel of Chance: LAMBERT & STAMP


James D. Cooper's Lambert & Stamp is documentary film that tells the story of an unlikely partnership. A duo that couldn't be more different, Lambert, the son of a classical composer and Stamp, the son of a tug-boat captain and their key role in launching and producing one of the most formidable rock bands the world will ever see. 


Originally setting out to make a documentary that would tell a tale of discontented youth, Lambert & Stamp would instead become perpetually and permanently side-tracked by the band we all know and love, The Who. From discovery, nurturing and evolution, Lambert & Stamp helped formulate the rise of a legend. 

The film is packed with gossip, stories and archive footage and was premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Lambert & Stamp is slated for general release in April (USA) and May 15th  (UK).

There's a fantastic season arriving soon from Friday On My Mind this Autumn.

All the Friday On My Mind faves are back for the new collection -- Friday On My Mind staple Retro T-Shirt, the Sailor top is back in a 3/4 sleeve version for Winter, in Black/Cream and Red, and a fave from last winter - the Valentine Dress is also returning later on in the season. In addition to this the Valentine style will also be available as a shirt with lace shoulder detail.

The jackets for this season are particularly good. The Tammy Coat (pictured left) will be available in yellow and pink. Also The Audrey Jacket is a short jacket with a matching skirt for a supremely retro twin set look.

There's a bold 60s inspired floral theme running through the collection, with the 'Fleur' Daisy design appearing in knits, dresses and shirts.

As always, a high light of the Friday On My Mind collection is the dresses - ranging from the everyday - such as The Nelly Dress in blue check, through to the more dressy styles, which will be perfect for upcoming festive parties! The Betty Dress in black polka dot with lace back feature, 1950s style leopard print Kitty Dress and the Noella blue floral dress will all turn heads at the Christmas party!
