Charles Jeffrey Loverboy is making fun of iconic, artistic emblematic symbols about art, cinema, iconic fashion figures, and everything, but we love it.
Glaswegian designer, illustrator and radical creative Charles Jeffrey presents Fall/Winter 2019 in London Fashion Week.
He created a world where there’s only genderless people, with no prejudice at all, with no homophobia, no ageism, no misogynist, only creative people and thinkers who believe in love as the main reign.
The meteoric rise of the Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY label is best encapsulated by Tim Blanks for Business of Fashion: “Jeffrey is speaking to young London the way Alexander McQueen spoke to his generation.”
The past year has seen Jeffrey become one of the most talked-about names in fashion – with an LVMH Prize nomination, solo art exhibition at London’s NOW Gallery and the British Emerging Talent prize at 2017’s Fashion Awards under his belt.
His brand Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY encompasses a fashion label and a cult club night, each informing the other. The LOVERBOY night forms the primary research for Jeffrey’s collections, with his tribe of friends and creative collaborators – artists, performers, musicians, drag queens and poets – contributing to the egalitarian spirit of the brand.
His SS18 collection, shown in June 2017, was his first independent showcase. In her review for US Vogue, Sarah Mower commented: “Charles Jeffrey is currently the upholder of all that is human, creative and cheerful about British fashion.”
In his capacity as a stylist, Jeffrey works across special projects for some of the world’s leading fashion publications. As Senior Contributing Fashion Editor for LOVE, he has styled the front-of-book pages of the past three issues. Other commissions have included the Creative Direction of a Vivienne Westwood archive story for AnOther Man, Maison Margiela retrospective shoot (in collaboration with John Galliano) for LOVE, as well as stories for Buffalo Zine and CANDY.
