The latest interview in our rolling 'In Fashion' series is now available to watch on demand.
Lou Stoppard chatted to Matthew Dainty and Ben Cottrell, the duo behind London menswear brand Cottweiler, about how they became interested in fashion and their career so far. The designers opened up about meeting on a bus on a college trip to Paris, the point when they began working together, about their childhood and how that influences their design aesthetic, frustrations over categorisation in fashion, their attitude to branding as well as the importance of authenticity and longevity in their garments.
'We find it more satisfying for something to be recognisable for cut and fabrication rather than branding,’ they maintain.
