At Capsule, we love a good multi-tasker. And perhaps no one we know embodies that finger-in-multiple-pots ethic quite like UK-based designer and textile expert Edward Crutchley. Before launching his debut menswear collection for Spring / Summer 2015 as part of Fashion East, the Central Saint Martins grad already had a thriving textile consultancy that saw him lending his expertise to the likes of Kanye West, Richard Nicoll and Jevoni - not to mention a plum gig as Creative Consultant at Louis Vuitton under Kim Jones. All told, Crutchley confided to Complex that he works on a whopping sixteen collections a year. As he put it, that might be "more than Karl."
Crutchley will again be showing during London Collections: Men this week with Fashion East. But if you miss him there, be sure to see his bold, innovative collection at Capsule Paris Men's, January 23-25, where he will be returning for a second season. It's a must-see for anyone who appreciates textiles as the very foundation of menswear.
