CHARLES JEFFREY LOVERBOY
'DARLING LITTLE SILLIES, AW19'
Twenty-six upcycled pieces made for the collaboration with Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY. In a world of Lost Boys, Wendy, and Pan, re-inventing what materials they had to dress up and play make-believe would be second nature. Frayed chokers made of sash window cord, knitted y-fronts worn as hats, and knee braces embellished with dead stock Swarovski crystals were just a hand-full of the pieces made for the runway show held in the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station.
'As these colourful creations slink down the runway, the surrounding performance is an ode to community and to the almost-sacred beauty in shared ideas and collaboration. Indeed, it stars some of our closest collaborators, three Lost Boys: MILLINER Leo Carlton, UPCYCLIST Matthew Needham, and JEWELLER Luke V Smith, alongside the spirit of LOVERBOY matriarch, Sophie Jewes, as wordsmith Wendy.' -excerpt from Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY press release Autumn/Winter 2019.
