The collection is inspired by artistic and individual moments. The creative director, Ian, had this to say;  “For my Spring Summer 16 collection titled ‘1760’ – a number but more importantly my identity for a certain gruesome period in my life spent in a remote part of Western Nigeria.

The experience from this time and Alberto Burri’s work on Sacchi mesh to explain this somewhat traumatic timeline. The collection is a visual and emotional interpretation of my habitation in that environment.

The predominant colour being blue emphasizes the difficulty in accepting the change I had to endure, an inflexible mindset. But then over time, after much cogitation, I reckoned that embracing the situation and creating my own acceptable version of reality would be the better option.“
