NYC-based menswear label Rowing Blazers has aligned with British artist Luke Edward Hall for a small capsule collection as part of its SS18 range.
Encompassing five rugby shirts, two sweatshirts, two Oxford shirts, two wool ties, and three corduroy hats, the capsule derives from a series of five illustrations by Luke Edward Hall inspired by the ancient world: a Greek vase; the mask of Tutankhamun; a discus-thrower; a set of ionic columns in ruin; and a statue bust.
Tomorrow is the last day my summer shop, Hot July, will be open at 8 Motcomb Street in Belgravia. My collection with @rowingblazers will be available in New York later this month and online soon @belgravia_ldn #motcombstreet (📸 by @billaltaright)
This collab came to fruition as Luke Edward Hall and Rowing Blazers founder Jack Carlson share a love for the Classical World. In Luke’s case, it’s an aesthetic fascination, such as the architecture of Greco-Roman temples, and the human and divine body in sculpture. While for Jack, it was his previous academic pursuit, as he was a field archaeologist in Italy before establishing the Rowing Blazers brand in 2017.
With the pieces retailing for $48 USD to $185 USD, you can find the collection exclusively at the Rowing Blazers Clubhouse in SoHo, New York, and online starting July 25.
