Casely Hayford are a London based father (Joe) and son (Charlie) design duo that started in 2009 with a vision of creating unique London style pieces for an international audience. Their looks fuse sportswear with tailoring and high art with street culture and technology. Having both studied at St. Martins, Joe is the former Creative Director of Gieves & Hawkes while Charlie apprenticed under his father whilst styling musicians from British band The xx to hip hop artists such as Nas.

After the Duchamp LCM show I met up with my friend Kristina at the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street for Casely Hayfords’ much anticipated Autumn / Winter 2015 runway show. The place was buzzing for the ‘Runaways’ collection which was supposed to draw inspiration from a group of runaways looking for a new way of life outside the narrow confines of modern city life.

The show itself was very fast paced with drum & bass and hip hop instrumentals blaring over the sound system, I even suggested the DJ host a rave night in the future because the music selection was pretty impeccable. What really stood out for me in the collection is the versatility of layers that were on display. The contrasting futurist techno prints of fleece sweats converge with the geometric lines of deconstructed puffas, which are presented as the new leather and nylon “Deflated Down” Jackets.

This season Casely-Hayford presents three unique collaborations – developing footwear, eyewear as well as moving into the wearable tech arena which is an area I’m really interested in so watch out for some more write-ups in the future covering wearable tech.
