Hixsept was formed in 1999 by French graffiti artists Hëx and Hept to adapt and expand the avenues of their artwork too include clothing.
Known as Aurélien Arbet and Jérémie Egry to their mums, their collections are ‘created around unique themes drawn from the sensitivity of their creators, from the places they have been to, and the people they have met. Oscillating between research, spontaneity and minimalism, each collection is a new beginning, starting all over again.’
Whilst I’m not entirely sure what that means, what is clear is that although the label remains under the radar in this country, their autumn winter collection offers a Gallic twist to the outdoors look that has been popularised by the likes of Penfield, Fjall Raven and the renewed popularity of Barbour, offering a range of practical coats, heavy on detail, as well as hunting caps, smart knitwear and shirting.
Here are a few bits and pieces.
