With an entire space raft of films and TV series relating to space travel arriving on our screens, this season, there’s something always cool about dressing for the Space Race. With Ryan Gosling in ‘First Man’, where he plays the first man to land on the moon, Neil Armstrong, and Sean Penn off to Mars in ‘The First’, it feels like the appetite is strong for leaving this planet.

There's a rediscovery of the space race at the moment. It could be Major Tim Peake's stay at the International Space Station or the recent exhibition at the Science Museum of Soviet Cosmonauts and their extraordinary journey into space that has inspired this rediscovery of retro futurism.
Always one with his finger on pulse, J.W. Anderson, has a Laika-like intarsia jumper for all of us wannabe spacemen. Laika was a Soviet space dog who became one of the first animals in space, and the first animal to orbit the Earth in 1957. Amazingly she was a stray found on the streets of Moscow. Now, that's an inspirational journey!
