For SS12, we chose the Golden Lane Estate in the City of London as the backdrop for our men's Laurel Wreath Collection shoot. Designed by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, the Grade 2 listed council housing complex was created in the 1950s rejecting the traditional rows of residential housing in favour of a more contemporary urban village. The clean lines and graphic squares of colour on the buildings fit beautifully with the contemporary modernist direction of the SS12 Collection; reflecting how subtle and considered changes can make all the difference.
The SS12 Laurel Wreath Collection is the first to be designed by 6876 founder and designer Kenneth MacKenzie. Kenneth's acute attention to detail and preference for architectural silhouettes works perfectly with the Laurel Wreath ethos of sharp, attitudinal design.

Rounding off a fantastic year of blank canvas collaborations that has seen us team up with the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Stussy and Raf Simons; we're pleased to announce the launch of a new ten piece project with modernist brand 6876. Established in 1995, the design house shares our anti-establishment heritage, taking its name from the year of the ‘68 student protests in Paris and the birth of Punk in ’76.
Founder Kenneth Mackenzie and his team have managed to consistently break free from a mainstream approach through carefully considered design details; such as subtle stitch detailing, fabrication, palette and the placement of newly developed dual branding. Combining pieces inspired by the 6876 archive with re-worked Fred Perry shirts and knitwear, the collection creates a unique utility modernist look.
