Central St Martins trained Levi Palmer and Matthew Harding are all about precision in cut and technical brilliance. Having garnered quite a loyal following since the duo started their brand back in 2012, the pair maintain their focus primarily on directional and beautiful shirting and shirt-inspired pieces – whether that be a cropped blouse, a crisp pleated skirt, or a full length shirt-dress. Before their presentation this afternoon, we grabbed 60 seconds to talk inspiration, details, and what they’ve got up their well-cut sleeves for AW16.
