Sibling brings fluffy and fun knitwear to the London Collections: Men
London's punk knitters, Sibling - or rather the trio behind the name: Sid Bryan, Joe Bates and Cozette McCreery - looked to New York for inspiration for their autumn/winter collection.
More specifically to the anarchic sound of proto-punks Richard Hell and Wayne/Jayne County. "It was the idea of being a suburban teenager appreciating the cool of New York punk but living in a nowhere land in Britain," they said.
This influence manifested in a swallow tattoo motif - one Hell had designed for Paula Yates - and a show title name-checking punk volume "Please Kill Me" which appeared as intricate floral needlework on a slogan sweater as well as the backdrop to the catwalk.
The clothes were fluffy and fun: muppet-like blue mohair shorts and hoodies, super-sized knitted scarves, mittens and double-stacked beanies in black, pink and blue.
Something of a signature, subverted Fair Isle was cut-and-shut with leopard print in a dirty pastel palette. Leopard print was washed in crimson too as jumpsuits, snoods and separates.
