DESIGNERS TO WATCH: H.B. PEACE

 DESIGNERS TO WATCH: H.B. PEACE

An exciting new duo of designers has emerging from Melbourne’s RMIT graduate degree, H.B. Peace is the creative brainchild of Blake Barns and Hugh Egan Westland, two innovators of design & fashion creating an abstract vision purely influenced by no other, their independence is prominent.

With a visually poetic video to celebrate their most recent creations -
the video reminds us of limitless boundaries for what the eye and an uninhibited creative vision is capable of.

a Lycra Chanel suit some Lycra C.K. jeans, some Morrissey for Qantas rip offs or the 2000 Sydney Olympics volunteer uniform?

heart swelling tear jerking symbols of our great country,  a marsupial road kill pattern OCD gel beaded, hand painted or

ever so

                  rebelliously  hand ssssscratched,     pour  le edge .

H.B. Peace considers clothing……. we look to it for some god damn answers.

mostly it replies with one liners and broken excuses,

       charming but a little difficult.

H.B. Peace walks the middle ground

constantly nibbling at both the very bottom and the very top

 in bad n good tastes

till our sweet frills fill up.

A home truth returned home

H.B. Peace
