  • FW17 - The Thames

    For their latest FW collection, Blood Brother take The River Thames as their inspiration. While vast in both its size and relevance, its potential for inspiration is overwhelming.

    BB spent their time searching deeper into the Thames asking why its reflection of London's heritage is so prominent and city-defining.

    While the River Thames is the pivotal reference point for the FW17 collection, Blood Brother have also linked to iconic London buildings that share the river's bank and the subcultures who were dependent on the river for their survival, such as mud larkers and ferrymen that made their living from its waters.

    Since prehistoric times, infinite motives have drawn Londoners to the notorious banks of the River Thames, it has always represented a site where people can discover and source something they need - it is London's aorta and the reason why the city exists.

    This season, BB continues its renown use of prints, referencing the mapping and cartography of the river itself. This showcase is boasted throughout the collection and brought to life using detailed embroidery over various materials such as silks, sweats and tailoring pieces executed in the brand's key seasonal shapes and silhouettes.

    Blood Brother sticks to its deep rooted tailoring within the collection. Jumbo cord features within the more casual pieces alongside waxed cotton, combined with strapping and pocket details to give a distinctly water-proof utilitarian look. BB's oversized signature coats and bombers give the collection its notorious, classic appearance.

    This season also sees the relaunch of Blood Brother's accessories collection. A five piece capsule consisting of hats, scarves, bags, wallets and footwear. These pieces reflect the functionality of the ensemble of London citizens who engaged with the River Thames on a daily basis through history.

  • LFWM Party Recap

    The 10th of June marked Blood Brother's bi-annual Fashion Week party. The event took place at the newly built Curtain Hotel in Shoreditch, and we've only just recovered from it.

    The night consisted of music from DJs Flohio, Medium Rare, Flora Yin-Wong and Aymen, as well as a more than memorable live performance from Northampton born energy radiator and underground MC slowthai. slowthai's ability to grip a crowd no matter the size is mesmerising, and the infectious mood that pours out of him generated a night to remember.

    The BB Corp inspired decor and staff-wear provided a truly immersive experience that ran parallel to the SS18 presentation. An inhumane amount of Hennessy was consumed and we ran 30 minutes past curfew. It was a big one.

  • Just Opened - Junkyard Golf

    For three months, The Old Truman Brewery will be taken over by a load of rubbish.. literally... In the form of crazy golf courses, Junkyard Golf Club, already established in Manchester, uses the sort of stuff you'd find at car boot sales, charity shops and junkyards to create a golfing experience like absolutely no other.

    London’s had a brainwave since the capital’s last pop-up golf course: three courses is more fun than one! New for spring, Junkyard Golf – originally from Manchester – has hit London and offers three insane nine-hole courses (each with a different personality…) named Pedro, Frank and Helga.

    Navigate jacuzzis, slides, speed boats, Wendy houses, cows and treadmills in search of the perfect round. Not to mention the mind-altering UV techno section DAFTWERK.

    Junkyard has four bars, serving the best cocktails such as 'The Golf Lundgren', 'Who's Your Caddy' and 'Tee Diddy'. The club also features two soon-to-be legendary street food pop-ups, Barts Dog Kart and Big Grillie Style.
