An Exclusive Capsule From Nicholas Daley, The New Face Of British Design
Britain might be famed for afternoon tea and bright red pillar boxes, but its modern identity stems from a long habit of making outside influences its own. For dynamic young designer Mr Nicholas Daley, this very British sense of cultural amalgamation has always been part of his story. Born and raised in Leicestershire by a Jamaican-British father and Scottish mother, Daley cites his mixed ancestry as the source of his cosmopolitan outlook and says it shaped the ideals of his eponymous brand, a concept he refers to as “the three Cs”: community, craftsmanship and culture. “These three elements are the backbone to the Nicholas Daley world and we stay true to these core values with every collection and collaboration, through the fabrics we develop and the techniques and artisans involved,” he says.
