About this item

Catwalk calls from a Creole Camelot; Sir Stephen’s more Boy London than Boy Bayou. Like the well-lit fitting room of a United Colors of Benetton store in Milan, “By Design” is consumer-cool counter culture, if the counter’s a denim bar that only takes gold Amex. Like the pool on the roof of a luxury hotel in Tokyo, “By Design” is Starck-er than stark, wetter than wild, and deeper in the shallow end. Like a Kuwakuba runway during Paris fall fashion week, “By Design” is baggy on Agynes, mixxy on Moss, jammin’ on Gemma. It’s so down it’s beat, so after-hours its early afternoon, so oversized there’s room for two. Made by design with the finest materials - rayon and on, cashmere and cream, and 100% silky Silk. Yeah, boy. Well, that's what 100% Silk say, we think this sounds like a quartet of Inner City Detroit house B-side dubs. Kevin Saunderson gon' get paid.
