MHL + I-D + SUMMER 2012
“The origin and inspirations can be the same for MHL and mainline. I enjoy both qualities, just as I enjoy the basic honesty of a roadside café as much as a good quality restaurant” – Margaret Howell
MARGARET HOWELL PLUS DAN PEARSON
This is the third in a series of collaborations between Margaret Howell and a designer practising in another field. Each year Margaret Howell invites a designer whose work she admires to produce a shirt. Previous collaborators were Kenneth Grange and Sam Hecht – both industrial design specialists. This year it is Dan Pearson, garden and landscape designer.
The first in a series. Photographed by Koto Bolofo at our shirt factory in Edmonton, London.
WALKING IN THE METROPOLITAN WILD THE RIVER LEA
In support of Open House London Weekend, Margaret Howell and William Mann discover a walk along the River Lea. Lea Valley is a mix of ancient marshland, metropolitan infrastructure and changing landscapes.
MARGARET HOWELL PLUS SAM HECHT
This is the second in a series of collaborations with designers from other fields whose work Margaret particularly admires. This time her partner in the making of a unique shirt is Sam Hecht of Industrial Facility.
