British knitwear brand Hades celebrates fifth anniversary with David Bowie-inspired capsule collection
FOR AW21, cult British knitwear brand Hades has debuted a flamboyant new collection dedicated to musical pioneer and British icon David Bowie.
The exclusive capsule, titled Hunky Dory after the English musician’s fourth studio album, is an eye-popping lineup of hand-crafted replicas of the singer-songwriter’s most iconic album artwork, with the typography and iconography entirely akin to the original designs.
Each of the pure lambswool jumpers are named after Bowie’s most famous songs and albums from the 1970s – with these iconic lines appearing embroidered across six unisex styles in a mix of grungy colours and slouchy silhouettes.
Highlights include the proto-punk Rebel Rebel knit in rich hues of chocolate and red, an oversized Ziggy Stardust jumper in black with embroidered yellow typography, and a pullover sweater vest punctuated with the collection’s name, Hunky Dory, in a playful 70s-inspired font.
Sure to thrill both Bowie purists and super-fans alike, Hades’ Hunky Dory: The Bowie collection launches this September in celebration of the brand’s fifth anniversary and will be available to purchase online as well as exclusively in-store and online at Rough Trade New York.
