Casely-Hayford has created a signature style of relaxed masculine proportions and exquisite tailoring, imbued with an injection of the raw energy of London's dynamic culture. The London born & based father and son design duo formed Casely-Hayford in 2009 to convey their vision of London style to an international audience. Their signature look fuses sportswear with tailoring and high art with street culture, realized by combining the finest craftsmanship with new technology. Having both studied at St. Martins, Joe is the former Creative Director of Gieves & Hawkes, the 200 year old Savile Row company. He had previously run his eponymous label for men and women. After graduating in History of Art at the Courtauld Institute, Charlie apprenticed under his father whilst styling musicians from British band The xx to hip hop artist Nas.
The brand has developed an international following, which ranges from musicians James Blake, Mos Def and Drake to directors and actors such as Steven Spielberg, Robert Downey Jnr and Michael Fassbender and is sold in exclusive boutiques throughout the world. It has been profiled in publications ranging from The New York Times and Financial Times to i-D magazine and Dazed & Confused.
The brand’s debut catwalk show took place in January 2014 to critical acclaim and was described by i-D magazine as
‘The most accomplished debut London Collections: Mens will ever see.’
