When British punk meets the streets on New York
A dedication to my father
I often see graveyards in fashion misrepresented as a dark and scary place. I used to come by my fathers grave after hours just to sit there and talk, for me graveyards are a beautiful landmarks that allow people to say goodbye to those they love.
Hoodedwept was conceived via a single philosophy: That fashion is one of the most powerful forms of communication we have. We encourage our wearer to approach clothing as a language, an avenue for expression and a medium for storytelling, transcending verbal dialogue.
Drawing from these cornerstone values of expression, freedom and the importance of story, Hoodedwept works largely within a monochromatic palate placing an emphasis on strong yet functional silhouettes and textural fabrics, providing a space for those who wish to explore their style and ideas beyond the norms of conventional fashion.

"Have you ever dreamed a dream that makes you slip and change and feel rearranged, mangled and mingled, warped and contorted, caught it and fought it. The one where you change to fit another place, the changling and twisting the realities of existing. The Morphling, not here, nor there, the in-between, the Sci-fi dreams of other things? I love those dreams."
