Streetwear Spotlight: King & Queen Clothing

King and Queen Clothing  is a UK based street wear brand founded in 2012 by two friends, Luke Simms and Russell Hewes...

  
The boys wanted to establish a clothing company that reflected the things important to them; honour, love and respect which is why "Honour Love Respect’ is K & Q's slogan, obviously. One of the less obvious and rare things about this brand is that all their clothing is produced entirely within the United Kingdom and that they use 100% carbon neutral materials.

Both Russell and Luke also hope to set an example by encouraging and inspiring young people to create and take opportunities that can help them cope with the pressures of city life. They are both working in full time jobs and, as well as developing K & Q, they are also actively involved in campaigns in schools and youth programs that offer career alternatives and new directions for youngsters. It is for this reason that the company has had the backing of the pretigious Prince’s Trust.

Although still in its infancy, K&Q has already been well received in the UK’s music scene, featuring in a series of MTV UK pop-up stores and at house nights ‘FOLO’ in London and ‘Idiosync’ in Manchester. It has also attracted significant attention from the world of sport with Chelsea footballers Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Demba Ba wearing K & Q clothing. 

Luke and Russell believe K & Q has a bright future and so do I. I love the thoughtful design and the obvious joy these two take in thier collections. Tellingly, they liken the fashion world to a game of chess they believe they can be "the most influential pieces on the board.”
