specific object is a menswear accessories label founded in london by paul lawrence – who after leaving central st. martins worked in fine art fabrication, textile design and print as well as founding november books in 2010. previous works have led to a deep interest in the minutae of the everyday and the overlooked, which combined with an experimental, process led approach to making serves as the starting point for the label. items are made in both the uk and italy, drawing material from only sustainable sources, and produced in limited qualitities, allowing them to be rooted in the best artisinal traditions whilst pushing the possibilities of modern menswear.
