The FUTURE CLASSICS fashion label was established in 2000 by designer Julie Wilkins and swiftly achieved acclaim for cleverly constructed jersey pieces based on exploring and extending the grammar of the T shirt. The label moved on to incorporate knitwear, tailoring and a dress line with the aim of creating a mainframe of clever clothing where the dialogue between the traditional and the modern, the avant-garde and the conservative are played out. A major part of the FUTURE CLASSICS ethos is the studied deconstruction of conventional dress forms. Adaptability and multiple, idiosyncratic possibilities of wear are also key features. The label produced collections until AW14.

The Look

A major part of the Future Classics ethos is in the studied construction of each garment, which combines a modern and deconstructive approach to classically made garments. The pieces are developed and produced with care and attention to detail, using traditional techniques and fabrics - silk, cotton, cashmere, wool - and are often hand finished. All knitwear is fully fashioned. The interior of the garment is as important as the exterior, and often ends up swapping places with it, leaving seams and facings exposed.
