The Beauty of what we do.

We tend to meet interesting characters along the way, as we offer a bespoke service we get people coming in with interesting concepts.

Photographer Jehad Nga, is one of those interesting characters whose creations are very exciting to do. Having photographed Somali Pirates, worked with Nike, Vanity Fair and various other prestigious clients he had a few impressive stories to tell.

The beauty being: we meet new creative people, they collaborate with us to create beautiful garments.

Here are a few of the jackets we have created:

We recently made a few bits for British pop artist Tinie Tempah. His new video is based on the Billion Dollar Man and has a very 70's appeal, which is captured throughout and styled by Damian Collins.

The jackets looked great in the video. One made in monotone red and the other in navy and off white. We hope to work with Tinie and Damian again as they have a very strong creative idea of what they want.

WONDERWHAT we will do next :)

House of Billiam x Soulland @ Capsule

Images from Capsule NY of our collaboration with Danish label Soulland, creative director of the company pretty much gave us license to do whatever we wanted but keeping it all black.

Features were added such as a split back panel, invisible side seam zips and cable knit rib. Focusing on quality of fabric and production once again.

Opening Ceremony have already ticked the buy box on this one amongst others ;)

Perfecto perfected

First of all Happy New Year to all readers hope you had a wonderful break.

Its back to work and we have been quite busy sorting samples for Japan, collaborations and also interesting bespoke work.

Amidst all the mayhem we have been working on a biker style jacket, based on the Perfecto and taking influence from iconic wearers such as Marlon Brando.

Anyway we aimed to make it more fitted and less boxy, using the traditional House of Billiam aesthetic we feel we have created a wonderful piece, and after only 2 pattern drafts!

images have been taken but wont be shown just yet, building the suspense, hype whatever you may call it!
