Archie Hammond is a recent graduate from Northumbria University holding a degree in Fashion Design & Marketing. His work explores the often-overlooked natural beauty of Northumberland and Scotland, and the rich cultural textile history they provide.
'studioBALVICAR' is inspired by creating a new authentic connection with the outdoors following Archie's adventures through the Scottish Highlands, Argyll & The Isles.

"The thing that inspires me the most is the outdoors, I find so much clarity and inspiration from it. I want to protect it and this pushes me to be creative in my use of materials and how I design."
‘studioBALVICAR’ reimagines military and heritage silhouettes, merging contemporary tactile hardware to create timeless garments fit for the modern outdoorsman.

"My hope is to setup a brand of my own, producing authentic products that are made 100% in the British Isles. There is no better form of sustainability and low impact fashion."
