Reimagining British tailoring, Daniel Crabtree creates staple menswear garments that are meticulously hand-crafted and built to endure. Each piece is cut freehand, generating unexpected fits and proportions that evoke awkward youth. Traditional suitings are embroidered obsessively, sitting alongside shirtings and knits repurposed from vintage pieces. Overcoats are left unlined and unstructured, combined with shorts and knee-high socks to create a signature, bold silhouette.
Wiltshire-born designer Daniel Crabtree graduated from the MA course at Central Saint Martins in 2018, having received the Samsung Design Fund and L'Oreal Professionnel Scholarships. He will be presenting his debut collection as part of the BFC showspace at London Fashion Week in February 2019.
