Life Saver came about over concerns about climate change and homelessness. Inspired by my love of Jamaican sound systems from the early 1980s, its a fusion of things that bring hope. Its a nod to life jackets, waterproofs, sleeping bags and when all else fails, a great hat with music running through its ear flaps to block out the noise of the world and lift one's spirits with reggae.
