Fresh off his intership with Givenchy and graduating from London’s University of Westminster, Brighton-born menswear designer Aaron Tubb has recently started his own luxe sportswear brand. His inspiration is pulled from the “iconography of Russian war propaganda, which lead me to find this group of teenagers in Eastern Europe who had their own blogs and Tumblrs. They were from rather deprived areas, but I found how they were dressing to be really thought-provoking and really beautiful.” His set of essentials features a number of practical design-related items including a measuring tape, PatternMaster, pens and MacBook Pro with Retina display, while his personal effects include his signature Dr. Martens, Persol sunglasses, Terre d’Hermes cologne, and illy Espresso Ground Coffee for late nights in the studio. Head over to his website for more on his designs and stay tuned for more from the up-and-coming designer in the near future.
