AW18 KNITWEAR COLLECTION BY ELECTRONIC SHEEP
For their Autumn/Winter 2018 Collection Electronic Sheep dig deep to reveal their true spirit - combining nostalgia, rock n roll with cut n paste graphic style in their fascinating knits.
Established 20 years, Electronic Sheep fluently entwine drawings from their archive with typography, collage, gig flyers and zines. Authentic is their middle name – each piece has a story – the collection will resonate with any music lover and beyond. Vinyl collections, characters from their eponymous comic,
skulls, trees, spray cans and soda bottles are woven together in this visually and technically avant-grade knitwear.
‘The Beat Club’ was a dive bar that the designers frequented as teenagers.
The memories and ephemera from that world fits with their contemporary style as they present monotone and colourful knits in the form of unisex scarves, dresses and tops. The collaboration pieces with Willy Carroll of ‘Stone Age’ Fanzine in London adds to their love of old school, underground authenticity.
For AW18 the designers have also collaborated with London-based designer Bobby Abley for his catwalk show at London Fashion Week Men’s. The knitwear which splices Looney Tunes graphics in clashing tones, has been
brought to life by Electronic Sheep.
‘The Beat Club’ collection is vibrant, fun and the genuine article.
Electronic Sheep are designers Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany. They established the label in 1998 and have been friends since childhood.
