TRAINING CLASS: TWO FINGERS UP TO A WRONG 'UN' DEMOCRACY

Lucie Vincini is a menswear designer and freelance illustrator based in London. She is a recent Royal College of Art graduate in Fashion Menswear. Lucie’s final collection Training Class feels very dangerous and powerful because of these gold mouthpieces that expose the teeth in a wolf-like growling grin. The collection is a snapshot of the frustrated youth, the ‘99%’, those kids who were rioting on the streets of London back in August 2011. One of the BBC articles describing those events says: “Obviously there are people in this city, sadly, who are intent on violence, who are looking for the opportunity to steal and set fire to buildings and create a sense of mayhem, whether they’re anarchists or part of organized gangs or just feral youth frankly, who fancy a new pair of trainers.” Lucie Vincini writes this sentence on one of her moodboards: “I’m not really working class, I’m training class.”
