MENSWEAR, MUSIC AND POLITICS WITH DANIEL W. FLETCHER

MENSWEAR, MUSIC AND POLITICS WITH DANIEL W. FLETCHER

Daniel W. Fletcher is one of British fashion’s new leading faces. A Central Saint Martins graduate, he worked at Lanvin under Lucas Ossendrijver and with Kim Jones at Louis Vuitton, before launching his namesake label in 2015.

Now a key player of London's fashion scene, Fletcher catches your attention with his contemporary take on British menswear. And he is not just a cool kid. Indeed, the 26-year-old designer is not afraid to use fashion to voice his political views. His “Anti-Brexit” Spring 2017 collection made headlines and was regarded as one of London fashion week’s highlights.

To celebrate the launch of his collection in exclusivity at TOM GREYHOUND in Paris, we discuss the future of menswear, the importance of politics and music.

Finland has always been at the heart of Tuomas Merikoski’s work for AALTO. After leaving his home country almost two decades ago, he founded AALTO in 2014 inspired by Finnish youth culture.

Here we discuss the relationship with his homeland and how it influences in his work.
