Cat Brothers: CATS IN HATS

When I opened an email titled ‘WOWCRACY: CATS IN HATS’  I was expecting a couple of weird/ humorous photos to brighten up ‘miserable Monday’. Instead, I found an extremely interesting platform (Wowcracy) and designer duo: CAT BROTHERS (Lindsay and Anna).

Crowdfunding, fashion and young designers. 

Wowcracy, is a crowdfunding site specialised in fashion.  It provides a platform that allows consumers to buy innovative and fresh designs whilst supporting young designers. WE LOVE IT.

So this is Cat Brothers and their CATS IN HATS collection comes in. Cats Brothers are currently looking to financially support their growing, and incredible creative knitwear label. Based in Hackney (we love them even more), Anna and Lindsay both have a love for hip hop and all things Mexican. Their first collection ‘crazy homies’, launching on the Day of the Dead, sees hand airbrushed artwork of iconic dead rappers such as Biggie and Tupac tees being hand-painted, embroidered and beaded on.

To compliment this collection, they have created  a capsule accessory collection designed exclusively for WOWCRACY. All hand and machine knitted, Cat Brothers is giving us all the opportunity to be the first to see and buy these items, and ultimately help Cat Brothers expand on their accessory range- BRAVO. Some of our favourite pieces below:
