tucked away in great russell street, with a magnificent view of the british museum, is home to some of most beautiful, softly sculptural and architecturally amazing menswear. it also happens to be my fave london hangout, and home to the brilliant boys behind brit label bodybound.
i first became acquainted with kim choong-wilkins and pliny champion when i curated their work in a fashion installation for the inaugural men’s fashion week, of which i am creative director. i was immediately won over by their genius use of knitwear techniques to create some of the most mind-blowing pieces.
a creative collaboration between asian supermodel philip huang, photographer and digital artist callum aldrin smith, kim and myself, followed, resulting in a stunning collection of images inspired by the mutant superheros the x*men.
many other collabs later, and these boys have become a firm favorite of mine, and their cosy showroom, a permanent addition to my list of “must-visits” every time i’m in the british capital.
i need to also add that, in addition to being talented designers with a penchant for fabric manipulation, they also serve up a mean high tea spread. and that, along with their impeccable british breeding and good, old-fashioned hospitality, is reason to linger for hours on end at this wonderful corner of great russell street.
