Allons-y

As the start of our ‘Canvas’ programme of artist collaborations, we are immensely proud to be launching the debut UK show from celebrated Belgian artist Robert Alonzi this coming Thursday in our Soho flagship.

Alongside presenting 16 of his paintings & sculptures, Robert has been using some our Overalls & Coach Jackets as a canvas for his practise. The Jackets will be on sale during the show. Highly collectible and surprisingly wearable items.

Private View on June 28 from 1900. DM us to get on the guest-list.

Open to the public during store hours from June 29 thru July 22.IMG_5581

Man Paris SS19

June 22-24, we head to Paris to exhibit at Man Paris SS19 in the Hotel D’Evreux, Place Vendome, Paris.

We will have some great new product & stories to share at the show, and doubtless shortly afterwards when we return…

Canvas & Gallery

On June 29 our Soho flagship opens its doors to the public as both host and gallery to an extraordinary Belgian painter and sculptor Robert Alonzi. It will be his debut UK show, showcasing 15 works, plus some entirely unique pieces he has made specifically for us, using our clothing as a canvas.

Read the biography on his site and you will begin to understand why we have chosen to collaborate with Robert – he has exerted a very powerful work ethic from a young age to now and his work expresses a strong contemporary aesthetic.

Definitely worth dropping in.

The Private View of the show is June 28.

 

Pop Iconography

We have become friends with various brilliant artists, musicians & bands since we launched – from established names like Jungle or Loyle Carner to newer kids on the block like Oscar #Worldpeace, Zak Abel, Pines, Yawwn & Ama Lou. They are all out their earning their fans, doing the hard yards.

Then, yesterday, a bone fide pop star wore one of our signature garms on TV.  Olly Alexander – frontman of Years & Years, icon, adored across the globe – was interviewed on BBC Breakfast ahead of the BBC Biggest Weekend, Olly wore our new illusion blue overall.  He looked pretty fly.

Keep track of such moments on our Instagram feed.

Carnaby Start-up Style

Last weekend was Carnaby Style Weekender in association with GQ Magazine. Carnaby Street was awash with people, in-store deals and events.

On the Friday evening, I spoke on a panel alongside Dane Butler of celebrated fashion eyewear company Finlay & Co, hosted by Fashion consultant Toby Meadows.   The discussion focused on our experiences of start-ups in Fashion.

Summer Tees Make Me Feel Fine

This weekend – May 11 thru 13 – is #CarnabyStyleWeekender. I am speaking at a Carnaby Street panel on Friday 11th at 6pm about what it takes to start a fashion business.

But much more importantly we are collaborating with two very cool artists in-store and launching some limited Summer Tees.

Saturday, we launch our collaboration with Mr Lee, who has designed two limited edition tees – a long-sleeved white tee ‘We Worked Hard’ with arm, breast & back print & a short-sleeved white tee ‘Opera’ with breast & back print.

Mr Lee will be in-store at 14a Newburgh Street customising an Overall with his unique masks.

Sunday, we launch our collaboration with fresh illustrator Rilla*127, who has designed a limited edition white tee, featuring an unorthodox figure as a back print.

Again, Rilla*127 will be in-store customising a denim work jacket with his illustrations.

Come down and say hello. Because it feels like Summer and we love tees.
