Charles Dickens’ masterpiece Great Expectations was the inspiration behind Red Collar Project’s S/S 2010 collection. If not familiar, the story is about Pip, a young orphan boy who’s raised by his abusive sister and her husband. At this point, he lacked much motivation but when an anonymous benefactor offers him wealth on the condition that he leave for London, he agrees. In London, his lifestyle changes as he is groomed to be a Genteman, rather than a slacker as he once was. Red Collar Project brings influence from both aspects of Pip’s life, showing us bright colors and free spirit design mixed with dapper layers of conservative design.
