Studio Sounds... Matthew Miller AW12

The Studio Sounds of Matthew Miller. Cover by Little Doodles.

Entitled 0.05 Expedition, Matthew Miller's AW12 collection sartorially re-purposes man made and naturally formed patterns and textures in to digitally printed garments. By taking its inspiration from the environment Miller's man conquers, from the city to the country, the blossoming design talent has created a wardrobe fit for all manner of adventure. For inspiration, Miller ventured beyond the confines of his Hackney Wick studio and explored his adopted city. Rather than merely travel from a to b and ignore his environment like so many of us do, Miller looked about him and focused in on key changes in his environment. From tree bark in Hyde Park to chip boards in Chancery Lane to well worn bill boards in Shoreditch, the entire city fell under the magnifying glass of the designer's eye, his chronicled snapshots evolved in to his AW12 collection.

We've all seen the prints and can trace the designer's footsteps across town thanks to the addition of QR codes to each garment but who accompanied Miller on his journey? As he explored, he was joined by a shuffling mix from the 80s and 90s including the slightly aloof Joy Division, the confused Kavinsky the happy to be there, one hit wonder that is Q Lazzarus.
