The brands are fusing together for an exciting new collaboration. Launching on the 17th of September. The concept behind the collaboration is a celebration of the brands that were both founded in the 90s - a pivotal point for British popular culture. With a shared love of product and the driving forces behind fashion - design, music and the arts - both brands have been connected to contemporary British style and culture since their inception.

Both brands draw inspiration from subculture; whether it be within music or fashion, and it was out of this dedication to recognising these groups that this collaboration was realised.

Fair Isle knits are a simple and easy way to inject some colour and warmth into any winter wardrobe. Once the unwanted Christmas present the Fairisle jumper is now officially the on-trend statement knit of winter 2011/12.
