7 Violent Classics / Citizenseven A/W 09/10

You know I know nuthing! about mens apparel but I wanted to let you know about a new menswear brand I came across called Citizenseven. Citizenseven is the brainchild of old friends, Barry Grainger and Neil Adams. The pair met at Art College and over the years have collaborated on various projects, they always had a plan to someday work togetherand fate intervened last year in the form of footballer Shaun Wright Phillips. Shaun and Barry paths crossed while Barry was designing for another brand. By chance they met again and Barry mentioned the then nascent Citizenseven idea. Shaun offered to become sole investor in the label, and thus a creative partnership was formed, bringing together 25 years of fashion industry experience, Shaun’s backing and enthusiasm and Barry and Neil’s talent.

Citizenseven is a well researched classic menswear brand with updated sub cultural and youth cultural references. Great quality classic menswear pieces with a fresh edge all made in the UK! supporting UK production that's reason enough to give them a shout out. They initially launched on line with 7 limited edition pieces all numbered which includes the perfect chino, harrington!, jogger, marl sweatshirt, oxford shirt, and marl grey tee. Each season, as part of a full collection, they will create seven limited edition pieces, instantly recognisable to the collector as CitizenSeven originals. For Autumn/Winter 09/10, they have created, in their own words, “seven violent classics”, seven key pieces, which lay down the house style in an easy and accessible way.

Limited edition run of 50 numbered to ensure individuality available on citizenseven !
