The fifth collection from Garbstore, “The East Empire Service Company,” draws inspiration from the working folks behind the British Empire. These include rail workers in India, waiters in Hong Kong, and more. Essentially, the line is an exploration of the civilian uniform.
To present the collection, Canadian Folk band “The Mighty Low” were photographed in their east London rehearsal space and illustrated by Ewen Brown. The illustrations will form the album book for their forthcoming record.
A sampling of Brown’s illustrations, and the Garbstore Spring/Summer 2010 collection, after the jump.
