Steve Lawler, the tribal house kingpin, contacted Skrufff recently to talk about his upcoming fashion range, Viva. He stressed that the clothes in his new range will be all about wearability, rather than over-the-top flamboyant clubwear.
I am sorry to say theyll be no drag or high heels, Steve confirmed. But, how cool would it be to make Viva wigs and maybe rubber skirts?
The Space DJ, Lawler, cheerfully admitted his role in the new collection will be strictly hands-off. He confesses, I havent a clue about designing clothes.
A certain designer approached me after the summer season ended and told me they really liked the Viva merchandise. Now, were in talks with this designer about them possibly taking it over, said Steve. He added, This is quite exciting, because this designer actually makes really cool clothes.
Steve said his favourite designers are bespoke jeans company, PRPS and T shirt artist, Rogun. However, he admitted his own tastes in clothes are generally conservative.
Im one of those people, that if I find a pair of jeans that I like, or a T shirt, Ill buy two pairs. Thats because I tend to wear my favourite things all the time. I have been wearing the same style Adidas trainers for years and years now, but I just have them all in different colours. Im not that adventurous, at least not outside the bedroom, he quipped.
