Reimagining British tailoring, Daniel Crabtree offers progressive menswear staples. Hand-crafted and designed to endure, this steadily growing collection of classics rejects the unsustainable appetite for the throwaway and the immediate.
Each shape is drawn and cut freehand, creating unexpected fits and proportions, evoking awkward youth. Secondhand knitwear and old shirts are taken apart, reclaimed, and repurposed anew, employed alongside locally sourced wools, waxed cottons and traditional suitings reworked by hand. Overcoats are left unlined and unstructured, paired with shorts and cut-up socks to create a signature, bold silhouette. Clothes that are honest and effortless, for free-thinkers.
Menswear designer Daniel Crabtree graduated from the MA course at Central Saint Martins in 2018, having received the Samsung Design Fund and L'Oreal Professionnel Scholarships. Since his debut at the BFC showrooms at LFW February 2019 (sponsored by Peroni) he has continued to exhibit work seasonally, including at Paris Men's Fashion Week January 2020 and as part of the BFC's digital DiscoveryLAB in February 2021.
