Sibling AW17 Menswear

This season Sibling, take inspiration from Barcelona's Park Guell, where Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi's iconic mosaics is most in evidence.

Dubbed by the designers as Mental Mosaic, graphics are taken directly from the tiles whilst rich orange navy and red are thrown at each other in abandon across tailored suits, bomber jackets and full blown skirts. The tiles are also blown up out of proportion to cover hand knits. Knit ruffles scroll across the shoulders almost Toreador sweater.

Gaudi zebra stripes are rendered in sequined navy and red or slashed across a classic cardigan.
An abstract take on a leopards tail wends its way across a jumper or creates havoc with tailoring (replete with matching old man's flat cap).

It's in the accessories that Sibling's englishness appears: from flat cap, knitted Lady Di ruffled collar, to a hat fit for Babs Windsor at a wedding, plus London's pearly Kings and Queens.

Sibling's collision of periods, colours and styles are their nod to Jamaican lee Scratch Perry, Full knit looks feature stripes in red and blue dissected by coloured bands.
Shoe collaboration with Freakloset.
