Last year director Steve McQueen debuted Small Axe, an award-winning series of movies based on personal stories from migrant communities in London between the 1960s and 1980s.

Described as a collection of “love letters to black resilience and triumph in London’s West Indian community” by the BBC, the series was received with critical acclaim, such were the accurate depictions of experiences felt by many who called London their home during a transitional period of British culture.

Paying homage to the series and the stories told, Patta has teamed up with Small Axe to a small collaborative release, which includes a Pearled Ivory knitted sweater bearing the flags of the countries in the West Indies, as well as a pair of graphic T-shirts that collage graphics from both sides of the drawing board.

The full Patta x Small Axe capsule is set to drop on August 27 and will be available via the Patta webstore, as well as in-store at Patta Milano, Patta London and Patta Amsterdam. You can also watch all five episodes of Small Axe here.
