Billiam Santa always delivers.

Take Liberty's

We have confirmed a collaboration with Liberty of London.

These should be in store for January.

Happy dance time?
Maybe :)

We have been working on ribbing samples for a collaboration next year. We wanted something subtly different, and also quite detailed. So we opted for a cable knit weave in high quality fabric. For me right now its the attention to detail rather then over-designing a garment keeping it clean with nice colours and textures.

This will make an appearance next year. We hope you like as it is......

Ribbed for your Pleasure.

I suppose an important part of branding is the visual aspect of your labels, shopping bags and hangtags etc.

So we will be collaborating with a store, a rather BIG store in the heart of London and personally one of my favourite shopping experiences, maybe its the cake, because when it comes to cake i'm like a hungry obese child.

Anyway the new hangtags have been designed and the feeling we were trying to go for was a personal message to the buyer in a letter format, stamped and signed by House of Billiam.

Yours sincerely.

I had to

Ok so as soon as I saw these I thought, yeah I got to get these. The price I knew would be extortionate, but worth it. So I slept on them for a while, and then decided to pop to the store and try them on.

That was it.

Game over.

We and yourself imagine the desired piece. We create and construct, taking your 2-D image to a 3-D masterpiece. We obviously tell you if your initial idea works, but you pretty much get what you want and a bag of chips. No chips really, you basically get what you want and more, made to your measurements.

Start with a blank canvas. Have an initial vision in your mind, fabric wise and any extra details you would like but be careful not to over-design. This is hardly Ed Hardy. Sophisticated, subtle touches always work better with an emphasis on quality within fabric.

any questions? any queries? cant sleep thinking of what colorway you would like?


Its a personal piece.

You and I are the creator, the thrill is to make it up.

Snob society

More recognition, the tonal concept was something I initially researched when studying my BA. I was a big fan of Giuliano Fujiwara, and still am, you can see from post some time ago entitled color palette.

Then looked at various british themes from the Red Arrows to the Marines and tied it in with the tonal palette.

Always hyper, a tad more right now due to the fact our hard work is starting to get a bit more recognition.

We just posted of an order to Germany for Harvest store, varsity jackets the same colour as their bike.

Also the fact we are on website I check daily. Its all quite exciting and a feeling of accomplishment. HypeBeast displaying our jackets and describing our brief description of collaboration with Chimp.

hyper-pleased ;)

Quick day trip...

.... to Denmark would be nice. As a new store is being opened by Silas of Soulland, they will be carrying House of Billiam so it would be rude of us not to venture over for the Launch party.

Carrying other brands such as Pendleton Woolen Mills, Ann-Sofie Black and of course us, with the visions of the Scandanavian boys it should be quite a store.

Did someone say House of Billiam x Soulland... oh-oh this could be good!

Slowly but surely. No substitute for hard work.

Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion

An exhibition celebrating some of my favourite designers work, with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Rei Kawakubo, Issey Miyake and Junya Watanabe it should be quite inspiring.

Purple. Looks like a Starbust and quite edible.

HMMM Tasty ;)

We care about the young folks

Its not such a great idea to be making extremely cute high quality garments for the little ones when your feeling quite broody, maybe its the fact I'm making them that makes me feel this way. Dad and son same outfits, Jordan I for when he's 1 Jordan II for when he's 2 and so on and so on the concept of having a human Ken is a little absurd but come on it comes with the territory.

Ok well i'll just get a Dog.

Recent work

Well we have been pretty busy.

Firstly getting orders into production for SS11 mainly for Japan, whilst working on bespoke orders here there and everywhere! We did a jacket for Roll Deep to be worn at the MOBO's, a trio of varsity's for girl group SoundGirl, who in my opinion should be asked to come in for a personal fitting ;)

Whilst doing this I have been drawing up AW11 which I'm pretty excited about and would say its probably our first full collection which will consist of up to 25 pieces.
Keeping the fabric philosophy and very British aesthetic were hoping it will make quite a significant impact within streetwear, any way enough of the talk here are a few images:

No rest for the WICKED!

la Maison du Billiam

Bendy was recently asked to make a dress for a friend, being something very different to what we do... he took quite well to haute couture with tricky fabrics.

A very elegant high quality dress, it was executed quite well and being dress virgins we were extremely happy with the final product. We left the hem unfinished, the fraying of the silk was a nice design detail.

Womens House of Billiam on the horizon? Hmmmm.

One step at a time!
