It always has been a dream of mine to design for somewhere that I admire and Capello’s has been a place I’ve admired for a while. I’ve been going to this barbers for almost a year since moving back to Cardiff and it’s the best barber in Cardiff by a country mile. It was a honour when the owner of the shop asked me to design apparel for the shop. He left me with free rein of the design but to capture the essence of the shop and quotes they live by, below are the designs I produced. They decided to print three of the designs onto tees and sweats which is pretty exciting!
Adrian messaged me on instagram looking for a photoshoot as he planning on moving to London to further his career in modelling. He was a streetwear model so wanted to appeal to brands like Adidas, Nike, Puma etc. He brought along two sets of clothing which I advised him to, this meant that he had a greater choice of shots and obviously appeal to different brands.
I worked with Cas in a previous called project called ’ Russian Roulette ‘. He liked what I produced and decided to work with me on another EP called ’ Dem Man ‘. His single portrayed a friendship that went wrong, both friends realising that they’re better without each other. He wanted me to produce a cover that represented urban life alongside the symbolism between two friends falling out. He believed that he came out on top with the feud and wanted me to show that within the design.
