Following the launch of its workwear-inspired Spring/Summer 2021 collection, British menswear label Percival has teamed up with Brighton-based artist and illustrator Sophy Hollington to tell the cautionary tales of Der Struwwelpeter.

Realised through a 220-gram cotton jersey, this limited-edition capsule celebrates Heinrich Hoffmann’s 1845 children’s book which comprises ten illustrated and rhymed stories, in which each has a clear moral that demonstrates the disastrous consequences of misbehaviour in an exaggerated way.

Hollington — who who often tackles themes from meteoric folklore to alchemical symbolism with her work — takes the form of relief prints created using the lengthy process of hand-carved lino-cutting, which will then be embroidered onto cotton jerseys in the heart of London.

The full Percival x Sophy Hollington capsule will be available from April 22, via the Percival webstore. You can also keep up to date with Sophy’s other work via her IG account.

In other news, Jack Wolfskin has opened its archive to celebrate its 40th anniversary.
