Once I’ve fallen in love with an idea, I can’t help but see anything else. I’ve been fantasising about a copper lampshade lately. And when I saw the new Mongrels in Common collection I must’ve looked like a magpie in a jewellery store. Copper! More copper! The belt? The coat with the studded collar? How about everything. Although perhaps the most beautiful detail: the copper shirt “buttons”, Mongrel in Common’s trademark.
