UNIVERSAL SOLDIER is the physical realisation of a body of research
into the relationship between activism and art focusing on the spirit of radicalism
and its contribution to both artistic practice and political revolt.
The collection aims to capture the freedom and the chaos
of the emotions of the average boy: to create an outlet for a political identity
charged by the experimentations of youth and desire to make a change to the world.
Visual motifs and screen prints are inspired by the counterculture movement,
with slogans used throughout the collection
inspired by the 1960’s British folk singer Donovan’s 1965 album Fairytale.
Every piece of the collection has been Handcrafted and made in England.
