John Skelton unveils the captivating Spring 24 Collection - a tale about craftsmanship, nature, and community.

Drawing inspiration from the remarkable story of Mike Feingold, who saved allotments in Bristol through guerrilla planting, John Skelton sought to infuse his collection with the spirit of community and connection to nature. A visit to the allotments, alongside collaboration with Allan Jenkins, author of "Plot 29," further enriched the collection's narrative, highlighting the therapeutic power of gardening and the profound impact of nature on well-being.

John Skelton's approach to fashion is rooted in a deep appreciation for craftsmanship and storytelling. Each collection is a continuous conversation, building upon ideas and subjects that resonate and evolve over time. The Spring 24 collection reflects this philosophy, capturing the harmonious relationship between Neolithic society and the natural world while exploring how modern society can reconnect with nature in urban environments.

Photographed by Will Waterworth, the collection showcases model Felix, exuding elegance in Scottish washed and treated cotton suits, messenger bags with freehand machine embroidery, linen and fine wool ensembles, and handcrafted hand block-printed scarves. The pieces evoke a sense of natural beauty and simplicity, capturing the essence of John Skelton's vision.
