We are currently developing a capsule collection of clothing in celebration of our history. It’s in the very early stages but the collection will showcase a wide verity of our favourite Red or Dead Prints and... Read More

Joan Cornella

Last week was the last day of Spanish Cartoonist Joan Cornella’s London exhibition at Hoxton Arches. And thank the Gods me made it! If you aren’t familiar with Joan’s work then you’re in for a pleasant and hilarious surprise. Some people fine his work “disturbing or flat-out offensive” but we find his unique brand of unsettling, surreal and black humor fascinating and insightful. If you missed the show we took some great snapshots for you to ponder over. You can find more of Joan’s work at www.joancornella.net
