The fashion world has been set abuzz by the groundbreaking collaboration between Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY and Wedgwood. Unveiled at Milan Fashion Week 2023, this unexpected partnership showcases a fusion of art, fashion, and craftsmanship, leaving audiences in awe of the innovative and transformative designs.

Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY, the visionary Scottish designer known for his subversive style, took inspiration from Wedgwood’s rich history and its connection to art and creativity. The collaboration pays homage to Josiah Wedgwood, a politically active patron of the arts, and sets the stage for future LOVERBOY x Wedgwood capsule collections.

At the heart of the collaboration are the decorative suits of armor constructed from pre-loved Jasperware. These showpieces, meticulously crafted from repurposed vintage jasperware pieces, captured the essence of Wedgwood’s iconic ceramic material. Each suit of armor was a unique masterpiece, adorned with Charles Jeffrey’s distinctive graphic and illustrative style. The pieces were hand-glazed and featured an abstract paint technique, bursting with vibrant colors that exuded a sense of radical change and artistic expression.

The collaboration also extended to a limited-edition collection of pre-loved Jasperware pieces. From urns to pin trays to tea cups, each item was transformed into a canvas for Charles Jeffrey’s expressive artistry. These one-of-a-kind pieces showcased his unrestrained abstract paint technique and unique style, breathing new life into the cherished Wedgwood ceramics.

Inspired by the collaboration’s spirit and energy, these illustrations embodied the artistic vision shared by the designer and Wedgwood.

To amplify the collaboration’s impact, a music video was filmed at the Wedgwood factory in Barlaston, Staffordshire. In the video, Charles Jeffrey, joined by Robert Fox and Tom Furse, presented a mod-inspired musical revolution.
