Motivated by the diversity of the local community and also the social and cultural importance of sports wear amongst the youth population, the collection reflects the importance of sports and street wear during my childhood and teenage years, and how this became part of everyday life. The colour palette takes it’s lead from Luton football club’s orange, blue, white and black home jersey

  • My youth spent in Luton, home to a wealth of cultures and religions, is the inspiration for the collection. Motivated by the diversity of the local community and also the social and cultural importance of sports wear amongst the youth population, the collection reflects the importance of sports and street wear during my childhood and teenage years, and how this became part of everyday life. 

    The colour palette takes it’s lead from Luton Football Club’s orange, blue, white and black home jersey. The collection is called 01582. The numbers stand for the luton area phone code.
