Topman have announced the launch of their newest collaboration with British artist Richie Culver, renowned for his experimentation with mixed media, paintings and collages
The eleven piece collection will feature work taken from Culver’s early experimentations as an artist, placing graphic photographic images in black and white atop garments in either black, white or grey, allowing a plain and clean canvas for the art to shine through.
Influenced by his experiences of coming-of-age in Hull, where he grew up, Culver has spoken about the autobiographical nature of the works used, and how they reflect the disgruntled ambition that he felt as a teenager.
Explaining the collection, Culver says: ‘Working with Topman means a lot to me, just like the British weather, sarcasm, football, things people see as English or British, Topman is up there in my opinion. This collaboration feels personal to me and I’ve tried to make the collection as British as possible, pulling out pieces from my artwork to fit today’s Topman.’
Set launch on 2nd October, the collection is accompanied by a short film, created by Culver and directed by his friend Tom Beard. You can watch it below.
