The 3-piece capsule includes a denim hoodie, a beige worker jacket and a matching pair of trousers which explores multiple realms of the arts from architecture to the renaissance period. Inspired by the 90s Manchester club scene and street art such as graffiti, photography and sculpture, the capsule offers a contemporary interpretation on past and current youth cultures. The pieces focus on function and aesthetics, tailored to Feux’s personal style. The collection is showcased through a live performance of ‘Visions’ and ‘Touch’, two tracks from Feux’s latest EP titled ‘Dubious’.
Merging the world of design and music, TAC enlists independent designers for ‘Limited Edition Collector Items’. Speaking on its new launch, founder Amar Direnzo stated “Design can be borderless and we refuse to be constrained by a single discipline or defined way of working. We work together as a community with a common goal, drawing on and respecting our collective knowledge to create enduring value”.
The authenticity sought after by TAC rings true throughout its collection and its choice of collaborators. Feux, meaning fires in French, has created his own style of music to create bilingual lyrics attached to an alternative hip-hop sound inspired by the likes of De La Soul, A Tribe Called Quest and Most Def. Growing up in a household of three brothers, all having tried rapping before him, Feux’s sound is rooted in his early childhood days and personal experience, bringing together Belgian and British culture.
Klutz’, also known as Taylor Leung, was introduced to the world of the arts at a very young age. He then went on to study at Central Saint Martins and London College of Fashion to fuel his passion. Since, the menswear designer has worked for brands such as AllSaints, DKNY and Harrods, bringing his street-inspired aesthetic into the limelight.
The three have come together in a collaborative and boundaryless celebration of the arts. ‘New Self, New World’ will be available for purchase on TAC’s website on July 25.
