Matthew Miller

DESIGNER NAME: Matthew Miller

ORIGIN: Stoke-on-Trent, England.

BACKGROUND: Matthew studied at the Royal College of Art. Before setting up his own label, he worked on projects with Umbro and Brioni amongst others.

SIGNATURES: “The brand’s strong signature style will continue to evolve and grow. It is formed from an investigation into the technological versus the traditional; performance fabrics, tailoring and sportswear detailing form the basis of the Mr. Matthew Miller look.”

TRADEMARK PIECE: “Engineered digital prints and structured tailoring.”

THE COLLECTION: “The communication of objects, destruction and decay through individuality. SS14 will be the introduction of a new manifesto for the brand.”

IMPACT OF LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN: “London Collections: Men has propelled London menswear designers to the forefront of international design. This has enabled the brand to triple the stockists carrying the main line over the last season and seen the product in stores selling out.”

FIRST PIECE OF MENSWEAR DESIGNED: “I used to be a massive Mickey Mouse fan when I was a kid (I still am!), collecting everything from hats to trainers, t-shirts, sweats, and toys! I used to design Mickey Mouse prints and put them on t-shirts.”
