Cheap Monday AW12 Collection

Inspiration is drawn from evolution in nature with coarse structures giving the feel of earth or gravel.
Colour palette reflects fog and dust.
Touches of Eastern philosophy and contemporary martial arts influence. Although the below image reminds me of a medieval knight in chain mail- what do you think?

The sleeve suspenders are separate from the jumper.Worn with 2 tube scarves, one in black one in grey and underneath is the long sleeved Tung Tee in dark grey marl .

Torex shirt in grey blue with fade blue jeans. Accessorised with black Alan hat. Braces separate from shirt.

I can see the martial arts influence on the above image. Alas I have no information on the shirt jacket - I don't think it is out yet.

Just Like You- Citizens of Humanity Charity Video Campaign

This month marks the launch of Citizens of Humanity’s 12 month charity video campaign “Just Like You”. Each month, two videos will be released featuring interesting and respected creatives and professionals from a variety of cultural backgrounds including Michelin-starred chefs, pro-surfers and this month prolific ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov (who you may also recognise as “The Russian” from Sex and the City!). The videos offer an insight into the lives of these people as they muse on their lives and achievements.

“You go through your daily routine with the hope that you will be a little better…and do something meaningful. I believe this program does something significant both in its philanthropy and in hopefully inspiring others in their creative journey,” said Baryshnikov.

  For October Baryshnikov is profiled alongside founder of Citizens of Humanity and denim guru Jerome Dahan. Each month the two participants will also design /customise a tee that will be sold online, with all proceeds going to a charity of their choice.
