1883 Magazine

No content with just being part of new rock band ‘Ink’, 1883 favourite and pop star Dougie Poynter has launched his debut clothing collection called ‘Polonius’.

Polonius is an ode to the romance and nostalgia of Rock and Roll. Creative Director, Dougie Poynter is inspired by the meeting of his two great passions; music and acting, and how these two important aspects of his life translated into something more. Stemming from a fascination of how the theatres once used to stage the plays of Shakespeare then became a home to the rock bands of the 60’s and 90’s, Poytner explores the allure and legacy of these liminal spaces and the artists who occupied them. Polonius is a homage to some of those stars.

The 20 piece capsule collection features a range of styles, from distressed tees and lurex football-style shirts to sheer frilled shirts and an oversized chenille cardigan. The stand out piece of the collection takes the form of a romantic floral motif cuban-collared shirt, reminiscent of Bad Lurhmann’s ‘Romeo + Juliet’ and 90’s nostalgia.

The collection ranges from £45 for a t-shirt and up to £595 for the structured black leather jacket and will be available exclusively at www.iampolonius.com.

The collection will be available to buy from the 5th June with a special pre-order date on the 4th of June, available via sign up on the iampolonius.com website.
