I have always been interested in the self-expression clothing can give. Often, I’ve been inspired by the self- expression of musicians. As I was finalising this collection, I realized I’d designed a look for Bobby Gillespie.”– Jonny Johansson, Creative Director.


A mix of separates that is like the perfect vintage finds combined with pieces of character, creating a universal look. The silhouette is long and lean. Leather trench coats have a fitted waist and slight A-line shape, falling to the knee. Meanwhile, vinyl trench coats in khaki green also have an A-line shape and a high gloss finish.


The long lines of a tailored suit are accentuated by the golden vertical stripes of a double-breasted blazer and trousers, with a constructed shoulder and long length to drape the foot. Satin shirts are fluid, with scarf plackets that loop the neck and then drape down the front.


There’s either a snug fit or oversized cosiness with sweaters, from a tight fitting Shetland wool sweater in turquoise, to a relaxed striped sweater in alpaca mohair.


Moroccan inspired striped kaftans blur the line between top and dress. They are hooded, with an elongated keyhole closure and oversized button, worn over straight leg corduroy trousers. The free drape of a light indigo satin evening dress takes its form from the barbershop cape.


It has a round neck, ribbon tie at the side and a simple press button fastening where it overlaps. Shearling adds scale, like a boxy camel shearling jacket with a round body, or a hooded ecru shearling coat with an oversized fit and asymmetrical front opening. Ankle boots complete the look, whether everyday in black patent, brown or white, or decorated with oversized buckles and harness belts in silver or turquoise.
