ETHETICS Episode 1: AKJP
In our first episode of Ethetics, Keith Henning gives us a tour of the AKJP Collective, which showcases designs from a range of talented South African makers, including Episode 2 designers Lukhanyo Mdingi and Nicholas Coutts. Back at his studio he introduces some of his team and shares with us the AKJP AW16 menswear collection, inspired by artist Georgina Gratrix’s art and impasto brushwork. After a trip to the Woodheads leathery we end up at the SvenMill factory, where their jacquard is made. We had the incredible opportunity to show some of the standouts of the AW16 menswear collection in the environment in which it was made, on model Martin Gareth Magner.
