Konbini interviews Jacob Kane about the first collection and his plans for the brand.
"Jacob Kane is 22 years old and has just graduated with honors from Manchester Fashion School. After a visit by the studios of British designer Christopher Shannon, he is about to launch his first online collection on July 12th. Inspired by modern art, urbanism and streetwear , this millenial fed to the Tumblr and Instagram culture is inspired by the world around it to create its clothes.
His passion is not new. A designer from a very young age, a fan of clothes, he spends hours looking after his style of dress during adolescence. A style he describes as "different from others, [he always mixed] old clothes with news ..." His interest in fashion made him leave Preston, his small hometown in northern England, for Leeds where he will prepare before finishing his race in Manchester with a license in fashion design in his pocket.
Jacob Kane wants to talk about "real guys" first and foremost. The young Englishman already knows where he wants to lead his brand and does not want to offer expensive clothes or style too inaccessible."
