What’s inspired you for AW15?
For AW15 we’ve revisited our CMMN blueprint and brought back the element of fun, the print and bold colours and the technical sport details we are known for. AW15 is the juxtaposition of future sport and sartorial classic. The fine line between streetwear and high-end fashion is blurring and elements from both these worlds are always visible in our collections and in this season more than ever.
Are there any particular artists/design archives/cities that you’ve referenced in particular this season?
Manchester with its vibrant art and music scene has been a main source of inspiration this season. As home to arguably two of the best football teams in the world, inspiration from the sport will be visible throughout the collection.
What has been the soundtrack for this collection?
The roar of the crowd.
Who’s the ultimate pin up guy for AW15?
It’s got to be Sir Bobby Charlton, a Manchester United legend, a true gentleman and a Sir on top of that.
What sort details can we expect?
Bonded fabrics, engineered cuts and sports elements are visible throughout the collection. Soft wool overcoats have been bonded and given a special hand finished treatment. Our tailoring has been engineered and cut in new ways taking inspiration from sportswear.
