Former clothsurgeon apprentice William Walsh has created his own label, titled Aitchison. Its collection, titled “Broken Easel” uses art as a key inspiration.
The name of the collection comes from the brand’s idea that a broken easel ‘“reflects a sense of beauty amongst imperfection.” Collaborating with British landscape artist Deborah Royston, her paintings appear throughout the collection in the form of digital prints on the matching cotton drill utility pants and jacket set alongside a nylon rip stop tactical vest.
The range itself sticks to modern streetwear silhouettes with a variety of bomber jackets, track pants and gilets all adorned with Royston’s artwork whilst the rest of the collection uses straightforward tees and hoodies to balance out the range. The Aitchison collection is available now on the brand’s web store.
