Sunspel x Patternity

Earlier this year, luxury basics brand Sunspel undertook  a special project with cult pattern specialists Patternity to celebrate London Design Festival this September. Inspired by the way in which Patternity observe patterns from everyday life, the collaboration was a perfect meeting between brands and also a great excuse to work together on a capsule collection of T-shirts.

With the starting point of the Redchurch Street, Shoreditch location as a primary source of inspiration, the designers behind Patternity found that they were inspired by everything from a tree bark, paving slabs, concrete, fencing and brickwork. All of these sources were observed and curated for the project. The resulting patterns and observations have now been turned into a photographic installation exhibited at Sunspel Redchurch Street during the London Design Festival.

The collection of limited edition prints vary from a stripe and grid and an exclusive Sunspel logo print.Taking old printing plates used in labelling in the past, the logo has been reinterpreted in a sketchy graphite rubbing designed exclusively for Sunspel, and hand-printed on our T-Shirts in a neighbouring workshop in Nottingham using traditional methods.

In celebration of our new collaboration, Sunspel Shoreditch recently hosted it’s very own “rubbings workshop” where guests were invited to join the brand for a drink or two and try their hand at the graphite rubbing process that inspired the new designs.
