Have you ever ditched the scheduled program of a school or university trip and decided to wander off with someone and explore the city by yourselves?
That’s basically how Ben and Matthew, the founders and designers of Cottweiler met.
They were both enrolled in Fashion Design course in Bristol, but it wasn’t until an excursion to the capital of France that they bonded over their similar taste in music and the general feeling of not wanting to follow anyone else’s rules.
A few years later they founded Cottweiler.
In May they met with The Wasted Hour editor-in-chief Martin to talk about that trip to Paris, combining sportswear and tailoring, winning the Woolmark Prize in 2017, the best party stories, and of course about their collection ’The lost art of cruising’ .
