Simon Barker, also known as aka Six, is well-regarded as one of the premier documentarians of the first wave of British punk. Armed with his trusty camera, Barker snapped a host of memorable moments and influential people, eventually incorporating his shots into books and touring exhibitions and now: a clothing brand. aka Six is his most recent endeavor, and its latest collection recruits longtime punk aficionado Hiroshi Fujiwara — who first partnered with aka Six for Fall/Winter 2019 — for a capsule that unites fragment design and the Sex Pistols.

Artist Jamie Reid is regarded as an architect of punk’s visual language, thanks primarily to the décollage art he contribute to the cover of the Sex Pistols’ Never Mind the Bollocks and Here’s the Sex Pistols, along with singles like “God Save the Queen.” His “NO FUTURE” imagery is at the core of the Spring/Summer 2020 fragment and aka Six collaboration, swapping in “NO FRAGMENT” text across sweaters, tees, hats and accessories.

Other verbiage includes “CRAFT LOVES CLOTHES / BUT TRUTH LOVES TO GO NAKED,” emblazoned across straps that grace a host of layering pieces and trousers. The designs simultaneously channel Barker’s rebellious youth — he spent many years heading Vivienne Westwood’s World’s End shop — and accessible silhouettes, with neutral-toned T-shirts, hoodies and other essentials serving as the base for multi-colored cowboy skeleton graphics and branded razor blade prints.

Shop new SS20 arrivals on aka Six’s website and at the brand’s Japanese stockists.

Most recently, fragment partnered with Victorinox for a CONVENI-exclusive Swiss Army knife.
