Delighted to have our colour palette celebrated by Clothes Make A Man.
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.
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.
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.
Really chuffed to be featured in GQ May issue representing Carnaby Street for the GQ Style Weekender, May 8th thru 13th. We will be shortly announcing some special things for in-store that weekend.
When a French friend spots your mug in Metropolitan Magazine on Eurostar and sends you this grainy photo, it is cause to celebrate the arrival of M.C.Overalls in Paris with the launch of Collection 2 at L’Habilleur – our first European stockist… And a questionable excuse for a bad pun. Yes we will update the image when we get a better photo.
Great to read Menswear Style celebrating the many reasons to visit the Newburgh Quarter, off Carnaby Street, Soho… One of them being our store. So come down and have a wander. And huge thanks to Bec Loades for spending the time chatting to us.
Finally our SS18 collection lands – available now in-store, online next week and with our stockists very shortly. It’s pretty exciting if we’re honest (even if I forgot to tell me face to smile in the photo).
We had a huge amount of fun shooting the AW18 lookbook on the streets of Soho with Jesse Crankson behind the camera and our team Lewis, Ellie & Gina modelling the looks. The output is finally pushed out this week. Meantime, the samples are available to see at our Newburgh Street flagship store. Come down and have a sneak peek. We want your feedback.
