Hellqvist & O’Donovan Document No.1

This book was created for writer David Hellqvist and photographer Morgan O’Donovan as a celebration of contemporary menswear design in London today. Featuring among others Katie Grand for Sibling, Meadham Kirchhoff, Lulu Kennedy for Fashion East, Richard Nicoll, Aitor Throup, Alex Fury and MAN.

‘Hellqvist & O’Donovan Document No.1 is not a book and by no means a hastily compiled fanzine. At 140 pages of quality stock paper, it captures precisely why English menswear stands apart from their admittedly more successful Continental brethren. They aren’t afraid to take risks. In fact, it’s that kind of strategy that propels them forward. Cue a kaleidoscope of colour and print. Tapestry and lurex. And, a skull bag wrapped in your choice of traditional dogstooth, herringbone or Prince of Wales Check.’ — Paul Davies, Port Magazine
