The collection is inspired by the 60’s, a time where music and youth had a voice. DAKS takes particular inspiration from the Mods, a subculture that began in London and spread throughout Great Britain and eventually influencing fashions and trends all over the world. You can see these references highlighted in the details of the standout pieces in the collection.
DAKS dived into its extensive archives from the 1960’s to generate re-worked graphics of old images to be utilised as motif’s across the collection. One of these images was taken in 1961of a DAKS factory worker from Larkhall on a annual party. This image has been set across a series of T-shirts seeing people from this time dance and listen to music.
The House check continues to be a representation of DAKS, so the
re-purposing of this for the diffusion line was incredibly important. The House Check is seen with overlaying graphics in interesting silhouettes which elevates the visual of this classic print making it refreshingly modern.
It's in DAKS’ DNA to respect its history, by exploring its archives DAKS have been able to bring back a piece of history for its modern consumer.
