Since graduating from the prestigious Central Saint Martins in London, textile design consultant Edward Crutchley has gone from strength to strength within the fashion industry, with his latest endeavour being the launch of his eponymous menswear collection at Fahion East’s Menswear Installations for London Collections: Men. Having previously worked with Kanye West, Pringle of Scotland and currently collaborating with Louis Vuitton Homme, Richard Nicholl and Chinese menswear brand Jevoni, Crutchley has built up a seriously impressive foundation. This summer, his debut collection builds on an innate knowledge of artisanal textile techniques from around the world such as kyo-yuzen kimono printing, hand-tied Indonesian ikats and the finest Yorkshire woven worsteds alongside his experiences of working with classic, easy-to-wear silhouettes. He retains his alma mater’s philosophy of “research, research, research,” which is reflected in that his clothes are grounded in tradition by a true respect and rethinking of craftsmanship and materials.

For the Essentials of such a hard-working individual, we may be surprised to see such a sparse showing of necessities but we can understand why. Like his approach with textiles, he relies on the quality bare necessities that keep him going. We start off with a sketchbook, pencil case, scissors, loop and digital camera, which are the most fundamental tools for such a craftsmen. Once the creative aspects have been satisfied, we then find his essentials to help retain the business side of things such as bank login cards, his iPhone, card holder and charging equipment. Finally, to inject a touch of personality and also functionality into his carryings, we see a necklace from his 2015 spring/summer collection and a bandana to cool him down on those hot, sweaty Parisian days. Enjoy the Essentials above and keep an eye out for pieces from his collection at select stockists.
