In short, striding out in zesty separates is the perfect antidote to a dour political landscape. No wonder Timmy Mallet always looked so happy! For Resort 20, Studio Nicholson have taken cues from the industrial designs of Dieter Rams, who favoured the lesser known RAL 9002 (off-white to you and me) for the majority of his radios and audio equipment.
For men who think big, Bushel is the best-selling men's style for volume. With the quintessential curved leg and neat pleats at the front, these bad boys offer the ultimate youthful freedom. Studio Nicholson founder, Nick Wakeman, clapped eyes on someone walking down a busy Tokyo street a few years ago, and never forgot the way he wore oversized (but perfectly executed) proportions. This fleeting glance influenced the resulting design and the wool Bushel pant was born.
For me, factory visits almost always kickstart the imagination. It's the so-called 'back end' of the industry that interests me, rather than the catwalks of Paris – I've had some of my best ideas under blaring strip lights, walking amongst the tinnitus inducing chorus of hundreds of sewing machines. Sometimes I think the nature of how things are made is almost as important as the finished product, which is why I felt compelled to photograph the inner workings of the Moonstar plant, which was a haven of brilliance, pride and calm.
