London Undercover X Slowboy

Making use of illustrators in their campaigns is nothing new. We told you last year about when Drake’s London sounded the Tokyobaserade artist Akira Sorimachi sketch company lookbook for Spring collection. Today we thought we view another shining example of how to combine the creative drawing with fashion in a very good way. Sambetet is between Illustrator Slowboy and umbrella manufacturer London Undercover.

Slowboy, or Fei Wang as he is called is a Chinese Illustrator who currently works in marketing in London and which has become a very well known name in social media for his sketches of famous #menswear profiles. His distinctive style is very playful and reminiscent of Herge’s Tintin, Kazuo Hozumi’s Ivy Boy and Leslie Ward (aka Spy’s) older illustrations for Vanity Fair.

London Undercover gave Slowboy commissioned to illustrate the company’s customers carrying their umbrellas. The result was successful and resulted in a number of different characters with different styles in different situations.

The company itself was so satisfied that you can buy the limited edition sketches in their shop for £ 60 each. They are only available in a limited edition of 25 pieces of each and they are all signed by the Fei itself.

We have earlier told you about the London Undercovers umbrellas here at Manolo. A short summary is that it concerns the products of high quality at a relatively affordable price and which managed to combine a great crafts with an interesting design. Recently they launched three fairly unique models under the name D-Lux. There are umbrellas that were inspired by French workers ‘ indigoparaplyer from the beginning of the last century. They have allowed to manufacture a special denim twill fabric that is waterproof. The shaft and the handle has since received a luxurious feel. The shaft itself is in solid hickory with details in saddle leather, which gives a heavy and solid feel. To enhance the workwearkänslan, they have saved a little bit of selvedgekanten from the jeans inside.

Production is carried out by hand in their Studio in London, the price of this most luxurious of their umbrellas are around 2 000 SEK.
