StyleSavage fills us in on a new venture between Andrew Bunney and Daryl Saunders, tagged British Remains. The first release we see from the label is this graphic t-shirt, the first of many more to come, all paying tribute to symbols of Britain and its subculture. The line is available exclusively through The Hideout in London, with a further breakdown of the brand’s inspiration offered below. Stay tuned for a closer look into the complete collection in the coming days.

Bunney and Saunders talked for many years about the things they like, hate and mourn about Britain and British Remains will explore some of those feelings. The debut collection is a tightly edited offering, each piece entirely encapsulates what the label is all about. The range celebrates facets of Britain and localised symbols that would ordinarily not be known outside of these shores. London brickwork, toilet signage and Generation X are all given the printed cotton treatment. After spending my youth in this once bustling now wonderfully depressing, occasionally violent and particularly English seaside town I just had to purchase Generation X as it depicts a celebrated beach scene. This was Margate during its heyday. In 1964 you were either a Mod or a Rocker. You had to be one or the other. The Mods had designer suits, Italian scooters and The Who. Rockers had leathers, motorbikes and Elvis. For a few years in the early 1960s, the two groups represented a sharp division in British youth culture. Their rivalry often spilled over into violence, and the 1964 Whitsun holiday weekend clashes in resort towns on the south coast terrorised local residents and outraged much of the nation. This image of the English seaside at its most memorable is juxtaposed with an image of academia gentility. Harrow is one of the original nine English public schools. It has many traditions and rich history, which includes the use of boaters, morning suits, top hats and canes as uniform as well as a very long line of famous alumni including eight former Prime Ministers (including Winston Churchill, Jawaharlal Nehru and Henry John Temple, 3rd Viscount Palmerston), numerous foreign statesmen, former and current British Lords and members of Parliament, two Kings and several other members of various royal families, 19 Victoria Cross holders, and a great many notable figures in both the arts and the sciences.
