The main inspiration for the Uncommon Creatures Spring/Summer 2012 collection The Protagonist of – is based on the poet Ghani Abdul Khan’s love for the local habitats of the pathan people. The S/S12 uncommon boy is young but experienced, innocent but marked, proud and playful. Unity, discipline and faith are the principles he believes in, and the rules he lives by. He wears baseball jackets, ammunition vests with long shirts and hooded capes in pre- washed silk or hand-treated torn linen. his silhoutte is avant-garde and raw, while keeping a high degree of simplicity, signature of the uncommon creature collections. Khaki, various tones of grey and black or selected pieces in rosy brown are the colors for this collection which, also features accessories like leg bags, caps, straw turban hats, all created by hand in Copenhagen in collaboration with Mathilde Forster.
