Phillip T. Annand
Founder of The Madbury Club
The Madbury Club and crew, headed by Phillip T. Annand, are responsible for one of the best web platforms dealing in the realm of streetwear diffusion and the culture surrounding it. A cool blog before blogs were cool – so to speak – The Madbury Club excels in taking journeys and telling stories, often with some of the biggest names in the industry like Nike and Gourmet along for the ride on their “intergalactic adventures.” The group’s ‘go anywhere, do anything’ attitude comes to the forefront of each project; the effects of which can be observed in the authentic narratives that arise from the U.S.-based crew. Some notable projects this year included their “CHAZEBRALOPE” project with PUMA reworking the Future Trinomic Slipstream Lite silhouette in beastly fashion as well as a well-conceived wintery shoot for Gourmet.
