The key inspiration behind the new line was English actor Jeremy Irons, who rose to fame in the 80s, alongside bands Japan and Wam.
The brand’s creative director Patrick Grant (of ‘Great British Sewing Bee’ fame), chose to title the collection ‘Quiet Life’, after Japan’s 1979 album of the same name.
Speaking to Yahoo Style UK backstage after the show, Grant revealed the idea of searching for a quiet life is more relevant than ever.
“In a period of extraordinary turmoil. we wanted to create a quiet moment and try and make people think about the simpler and more honest things in life,” he said.
“There’s a lot of polarisation in politics at the moment and I’m quite a centrist. I’m progressive in my political outlook but I just think we need to focus on the simple things a little bit more.”
The designer also revealed that he was feeling more positive about UK politics, following this week’s election results.
“The fact that we’ve got a hung parliament means that politicians have to debate and it’s not one big party sweeping through,” he said.
“Its going to have to be about discussion and agreement and finding a consensus and I think that’s good.”
