LA­BEL Lover Teacher’s pet Craig Green com­pleted a BA (Hons) Fash­ion de­gree in print be­fore tak­ing cen­tral Saint Martins’ in­ter­na­tion­ally re­spected MA Fash­ion course un­der the late, great Louise Wil­son’s men­tor­ship.

WHAT A PLANK! Al­though widely lauded by the press, the 27-year-old de­signer’s first col­lec­tion (shown at Lon­don col­lec­tions: Men in 2013 as part of Top­man and Fash­ion east’s MAN ini­tia­tive) in­cluded face-fram­ing wooden sculp­tures that were openly mocked by David Gandy on live tele­vi­sion, while the

wrote a scathing cri­tique head­lined “What a plank!”— one of Green’s favourite re­view quotes to date.

FIGHT­ING BACK WITH TEARS The de­signer turned the ta­bles when his first solo show in 2014 had mem­bers of the Frow sob­bing over his stun­ningly po­etic SS15 col­lec­tion. His SS16 has a sim­i­larly sur­real en­ergy— mod­els in mono­chrome rem­i­nis­cent of karate kit car­ried tim­ber posts draped with sheets and strange cir­cles were cut in tor­sos. Green is one to watch.
