60s Swing Mac from Oasis


Swing coats for Summer never seem to go out of style, and it never takes over the top detailing or patterns to make a real retro statement. One of the best we've seen this season comes in the form of this 60s Swing Mac from Oasis.

Available in two vintage inspired shades, the tomato red in particular has an effortless feel of British mid-sixties design. With an A-line shape, slim sleeves and a high collar, the simple addition of flap pockets adds both practicality and a hint of classic militaristic influence too.

It's now available in both colours for £75 from Oasis.

Cavendish Mac from Hobbs


When investing in something as often worn as outerwear, opting for classic styles is always the best option. Allowing for versatility and never overshadowing your carefully selected Friday night threads, coats like this Cavendish Mac from Hobbs are a must in every retro wardrobe.

Taking inspiration from the simplicity and class of sixties looks, the mac uses timeless structure like double breasted fastening and a belted waist to create a feminine silhouette. The use of white trim against a deep navy adds structure to the lapels and pockets, nodding to the sixties love of monochrome too.

Get yours from Hobbs now for £149.

Andy Warhol for Incase

Everyone's favourite Pop artist is now available to add a touch of style to your favourite technology, thanks to the Andy Warhol for Incase range.

It's a range of cases, sleeves and bags for the iPhone, iPad and Mac Book featuring Warhol's artwork. The first few items of the range are based around the banana image produced for the Velvet Underground and Nico album in 1966 and his take on camouflage, with more designs to follow. The range has been authorized by the Andy Warhol Foundation who argue Warhol's fascination with technology means, if alive today, he would have been an avid fan and devourer of these products. 

With some products available now and some ready for pre-order, prices start at $49.95 for a snapcase for the iPhone 4.

Recently, we featured an article on the best vintage camera apps for the iPhone. But what about photos you've already taken on a camera? Well, now there's Lo-Fi.

It follows a similar principle to the mobile apps, but operates on your PC or Mac to offer retro effects for existing photos. You can mix a wide range of effects from the film world, such as grain, colourful cross processing, lens blur, light leaks and frames. Combine more than one to create something unique. You can even hit a button for random effects, if you can't be bothered tweaking.

Along with editing, there's also easy sharing via Flickr and Facebook and if you want to try it out, there's also the option to try for free. If you like, the full download sells for $29.
