Topman have been supporting Sibling over the past few years through their NewGen MEN sponsorship and more recently the LCM award, which helped fund their recent catwalk show.
‘It’s been such a privilege to have collaborated with Sibling on this Knitwear collection. They are a team that I’ve wanted to work with for some time and a chance conversation in the Topman pub take over at London Collections:MEN provided us with the excuse. Their expertise and command of the “language of knits” has resulted in an amazing collection with a strong Id and that touch of irreverence associated with their brand,´ says Gordon Richardson, Creative Director of Topman.
For their collaboration with Topman, they have put their twist on the classic Christmas jumper along with a selection of fun knitted accessories.
The SIBLING TOPMAN collaboration is available at Oxford Circus – London, General Store – Shoreditch, Arndale- Manchester, SELFRIDGES – London
