FAMILY TIES: The London street wear brand Blood Brother made strides this season, showing for the first time on the London Collections: Men calendar, and moving beyond its signature, minimal T-shirt designs. Designers Nicholas Biela and James Waller showed at a disused tube station on The Strand and their collection took its cues from old-fashioned holidays at British seaside towns. According to Biela, his man for the season was an average, blue collar guy in his heyday.
Standout pieces included outerwear, as in an oversized technical trench and a suede fisherman’s gilet. The latter had oversize pockets and was layered over a suede bomber jacket. The label also used kitsch postcard graphics such as the Eiffel Tower, for T-shirts, jackets, a hooded sweatshirt and shorts.
