After graduating from the prestigious London fashion school Central Saint Martins, Edward Crutchley worked at Pringle, before launching his own brand in 2015. Along the way, he’s collaborated with Louis Vuitton and Kanye West and picked up two Woolmark Prizes for fashion in 2019. A keen student of fashion, Crutchley places a huge importance on research, tradition and textiles when designing his menswear collections. EDGAR spoke to him about what’s hanging up in his closet and his surprising choice of sock brand.
The most worn item of clothing in my wardrobe
I’m living in the straight cut trousers from my summer 20 collection. I’ve got a black and brown pair and – even though I made them, I’m not boasting! – they are super comfy and go with pretty much everything.
The oldest piece in my wardrobe
I have a pair of the first edition of Levi’s twisted jeans that I wore at university. To be honest, they are more holes than jeans now, but I can’t get rid of them.
The colour I feel most comfortable wearing
I feel happy in any colour. I do tend to have a base of black, brown or navy but it’s fun to wear something bright and I think colour helps lift your mood.
