SUMMER '21

STYLING

Part I

Clutch Cafe Lookbook

We are extremely pleased to launch our first official lookbook for Spring & Summer '21. We at Clutch Cafe are very lucky to have access and connections (through Clutch Magazine) to some of the best 'heritage' and artisan brands which Japan has to offer, which we are honoured to present to you in our own unique manner and style.

Through this collection of images, we hope to excite, inspire and inform you as to our ethos, style and who we are as a brand. 

Our Models...

We  asked a few of our customers to help us out and bring their own personality and style into the mix. 

We also asked them each to make us a playlist each , which can be listened to clicking the link below. 

Michael Jablonka

...Known as 'Jabo' by most, is a guitarist/singer songwriter from London; he is a  guitarist with Michael Kiwanuka when touring, and has two EP's under his own name, which are definitely worth checking out.   

 His personal style, as with most, is linked to musical tastes and influences and in his own words "I’m a big fan of styles that feel naturally worn. I especially like Kurt Cobain and Bob Marley that had styles that were so iconic without trying, they wore things effortlessly".  

 You can listen to Micheal here.

Louie Rivers

Is an artist and tattooer from Exeter, he has been tattooing for 10 years, and has owned his own studio 'Louie’s Electric Tattoo’ for four years. 

Louie's style and musical taste has been shaped from an early age by time spent on his Grandparents farm. His Grandfather, Mike, passed his love of country music and blue grass down the generations to Louis and his Grandmother, Heather taught him how to sketch and paint in watercolour; painting flowers picked from the farm, teaching him tricks he still uses  while designing tattoos. 

"The time spent visiting my  grandparents conjures up  memories of  denim, bluegrass, cowboy boots, painting and being sunburnt from playing in the fields with my cousin. Everyday I'm utilising those memories I hold  dearest to me and keeping them alive. 

I like things to be timeless, whether thats music clothing or tattooing; it has to stand the test of time

Graeme Webb 

 ... better known as Arcimboldi Studios and for his meticulously detailed staged photography and multimedia work and work as a prop & architectural model maker. He is a trained book binder who has recently turned his hand to making leather leather journals as well as having an interest in analogue technology and old photographic processes.   

For want of a word with less stigma, he is a true renaissance man.
