They dress with a lot of utility, a lot of outerwear, they layer themselves up; they wear the cycling pants with the shorts on top. Then you have all the outerwear layered on top so this was really the starting point. We took all these ideas and silhouettes and started to rework them with very iconic references creating new hybrids like the biker jacket became a parka, it was this sort of idea throughout the collection. Ultimately giving a sort of stark, sharp look to represent this sort of urban ‘ninja’ almost.We focussed a lot on leather, a lot on outerwear, on denim and working with this vocabulary of recognisable items but giving them a new context.
