The Story of the Kings Artwork

By popular demand, we've added some beautiful new colourways to the gold label with the BLAG Kings art.

Here's the story of how the art came together:

Despite collective crazy schedules, it didn’t stop Tom, Sarah and Sally from concocting and sketching up ideas between takes, shoots, film and publishing productions. Texts, emails, photos, ideas and notes constantly flew around amongst us, with all manner of ideas. Here’s a piece that celebrates British eccentricity, the BLAG Kings Cricket Club. The initial concept is by Tom, with line drawings by Sarah, after equally eccentric research: looking at the greenest Cricket Grounds in the country, jewellery intricacies to bring back our Lucky Sevens, historical anatomy studies via medicine libraries, figuring the difference between real and fake handcuffs, top hats that have enough character and finally creating various handmade typography styles. Sally completed the piece using her fine tuned Art Direction skills – team work and something we hope you’ll all love.
