The London based brand Antipodium creates fashion for the fiercely individualistic, effortlessly cool and unapologetically confident crowd. Whoever that is. Antipodium’s Aussie creative director, Geoffrey J. Finch, has reflected his pop culture inspired surroundings, rural childhood and effervescent artistic neighborhood of Shoreditch into his creations.

The craftsmanship of the line is utterly obvious in her attention to fabrics and compositions. Each piece is unique and varied in color and dye pattern, which are inspired by Hubble telescope photos of worlds being born and stars dying. Let’s talk about spaceships?
