Robert Cary-Williams in armchair outside next to pet cow Francis Bacon watching tv

Agent Anonym has been making gloves under the Glovedup label since 2001. I am particularly impressed with her bespoke work for the Spring Summer 2006 London Fashion Week catwalk show of the Flea-ish Robert Cary-Williams' .

Leather sleeve stitched with wire and fastened with rusty hardware found in Hackney Wick car park, and chain tassel. "ROBERT CARY WILLIAMS" anagram: "LIBERTY IS AMORAL RCW" is stamped into sleeve.

Canadian Flea-readers will most likely have been introduced to the Robert Cary-Williams oeuvre through the designer's guest appearance on Project Catwalk (Ep. 8: "Rags to Riches"). I love his smart deconstruction; he somehow manages to make his clothes look equally expensive and post-apocalyptic. Just what we will all need in the coming days of Manbearpig.
