News: Ben Sherman x Matthew Miller

Matthew Miller brings something political to his designs. Rather than assimilating into the world of fashion, he has plays out a social commentary through his designs, exploring topical issues and presenting something altogether different, exciting and new. Now the young British designer has teamed up with British heritage brand, Ben Sherman, to create a unique six-piece capsule collection for Spring / Summer 2014.

For the collection Miller expanded on his trademark experimentation of traditional structures, subverting them with new fabrications. The collection, entitled ‘disaffected generation since forever’, is an investigation into identity through rebellion and the pressures of conformity, while expanding upon a sociopolitical exploration of today’s society. The designs see the Ben Sherman ‘House Check’ enlarged and applied as a new print for t-shirts, shirts and a jacket. The shirts and t-shirts have been dissected with a cross-fading ‘House Check’, whilst others have a ‘DGF’ chest badge, much like an emblem for the collection’s mission statement.

The ‘disaffected generation since forever’ collaboration by Ben Sherman x Matthew Miller launches very soon! Sign up here to keep informed.
