The second Artist in our ‘Canvas’ art programme, Jennifer Louise Martin, has just revealed the first completed work – a customised Overall, combining paint, knit and embroidery. It’s a beauty.
We will ultimately be selling 10 Overalls when the ‘Layers’ show starts on August 2.
First come first served.
Great to see our Robert Alonzi collaboration as the first part of our ‘Canvas’ art programme covered by the Hype Kings.
Private view tonight. Open to the public tomorrow at our Soho flagship.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A timely reminder of our brand films featuring some fine contemporary workers doing what they do… In our signature overalls. We worked hard.
Luke Todd included our Coach Jackets from our Beavertown collaboration in his FashionBeans run-down of the best new pieces this June.
One of our very first collaborations at our new Dean Street Pop-up in Soho is with craft brewer Beavertown – led by their amazing illustrator Nick Dwyer. Shortlist dig it too.
Wonderland have been in early to meet us at our Dean Street pop-up and get a gist of our collaboration strategy… which continues.
