“For this collection, I wanted to focus on clothes rather than themes, on individual garments and accessories and what they stand for in their own right. This is something that seems more appropriate when a collection is looked at in detail rather than shown and seen at a distance. Last season was about stopping and assessing; it was about the rigour of process. This collection still has that, for one, there is an inquisitive exploration of the expertise of tailoring. But there is also the joyful immediacy of found objects as well as the domestic and homespun, personal and playful moments underpinned by the rigour of formality and utility.”
– Creative Director, Mark Weston
This season, the soundtrack to the collection film was created in collaboration with IG Culture. A selector, best known as a pioneering producer of the broken beat movement, he was also co-founder of the legendary CoOp Club at London’s Plastic People. One half of NameBrandSound, with releases on Ninja Tune and Arena Yard, IG Culture recently launched the CoOp Presents Label and founded Selectors Assemble, who host a monthly show on London’s Worldwide FM. Recent events include Boiler Room, TATE Modern and Dimensions Festival.
“This project has been a huge opportunity and stretched me into new areas musically. I am amped that I was able to raise my game for this special occasion. The learning curve was a challenge and the deadline brought a different side out in my production. I am very happy that I was able to work alongside Mark and Peter for this amazing project for dunhill” – Musician & Producer, IG Culture
