The Inspiration Behind Our AW16 Collection

Our story is set in an alternative past where all forms of individual expression are closely monitored and compliance is seen as key to maintaining law and order. Every element of daily life - the homes lived in, the books read, the art viewed and even the clothes worn - have to be approved by the Department of Community and Conformity.

When a gifted young architect is commissioned by the D.C.C. to create a new micro-city within London to be known as Mundania, the story unfolds. Pulling down decades of history in order to showcase the future vision of the capital takes a mental toll on the architect and his restless nights soon become filled with dreams of rebellion.

By contrast, elsewhere in London a young artist lives an almost nocturnal existence, unable to cope with the daily conventionality that others willingly embrace. Working with a small underground group he acquires and protects unsanctioned artworks for future generations. Hearing of plans for Mundania he decides to foil the government’s scheme by all means necessary.

Stay vigilant - there are artists among us.

When the Artist and the Architect come face to face, they realise the future of London is, quite literally, in their hands.
