toxic

Toxic - Meat’s ninth collection – takes a dark turn from their usually positive message and decides instead to make a statement on the worries of our generation. The consistent fear and confusion; fake news; false celebrities; global warming threats; everything seems as hopeless and disjointed as a Black Mirror episode. However, a sense of bold confidence underpins the collection, as the disenfranchised and abandoned are powerful together.  The collection includes carefully created durable, quality, easy-to-wear pieces which can be be mix&matched, for which has become a signature style for the brand. Every piece has been made in contrasting toxic yellow and oil black, which uniform will you choose? The MEAT branding takes a switch up as it’s logo change and colour palette nods to the branding of large oil companies. Shapes within the collection pay homage to the brand’s designers youth and projects them into the future. Silhouettes and design features are drawn from the skateparks and raves that they frequented.  

Meat launched the collection with a collaborative TOXIC show with the music artist Astrid Gnosis at the world famous fetish club Torture Garden and a special campaign shot by Hannah Diamond with Astrid. The taste of burnt rubber will linger in your mouth.

Miss Sexxy

miss sexxy

For their latest collection - the London latex brands eighth - MEAT have retraced references from their archive and reimagined them across a set of sophisticated, modern pieces to form ‘MISS SEXXY’. Familiar sex-positive slogan appliqués, embellishments and signature tartan patterns are brought up to date across a variety of semi-transparent and hot-coloured latex pieces within the collection. Nods are also made throughout ‘MISS SEXXY’ to tropes of sexualised expression on social networks such as Instagram (and the ongoing debate surrounding the networks desire to censor them) - something which the MEAT brand and much of their audience have been actively engaged with since the brands inception. As always, the collection upholds MEAT’s harmonious relationship between the worlds of fetish and fashion and looks set to appeal to the modern ‘MEAT Babe’ who knows what she wants from life, and how to go out and get it.

MUTANT

mUTANT

MUTANT takes us to the motocross track to get dusty with some strong and confident racing babes. No longer are the days of just hot girls in bikinis. Tribal and traditional motocross 'fashion' plays a heavy influence for the line, which also includes MEAT branding in the form of their own sponsorship. Notable design developments of 'Mutant' can be found in the construction of paneling and heavy attention to detail. With it's deliberately vibrant colour palette and unifying designs, 'Mutant' invites you to join the tribe.
Meat launched the collection with an explosive show at the world famous fetish club Torture Garden, featuring dancers choreographed by Jessica Holder (M.I.A – bad girls), music by Darq E Freaker & SOPHIE and visuals by Rollz Royce.

SURVIVAL OF THE SICKEST

SURVIVAL OF THE SICKEST

For AW14 Meat are taking us back to school. Luckily though, this doesn't mean revising for science exams, semolina and doing cross-country in the pouringrain. Instead it means that for this seasons collection they have sought to distill raging hormones, slogans culled from year 9 pencil cases and girls locker rooms into their trademark latex design aesthetic. As always, a sense of bold sexuality underpins the collection, this time charged by teenage confusion and the raging yearning and heartache of Myspace-era emo bands.
Shapes within the set pay homage to the wares of Saturday morning shopping staplessuch as Tammy Girl, and northern teen retail havens such as Manchester’s Affleck’s Palace and Leeds Corn Exchange, while the collections consistent color palette provides a gang uniform to match the tribal attitude of the Meat mall rat. This bold and contrasting use of red and black that underpins thepieces lends a nod to Moschino as reimagined by Marilyn Manson which, coupled with the secondary school attitude it perpetuates, makes 'Survival of the Sickest' a more than apt title for the collection.

Scribble it on your arm with a sharpie and remember: IDST.

SOTS was launched as a LIVE Interactive presentation on Instagram: viewers had their messages read out by the SOTS meatbabes.

embassy

embassy

For their Spring/Summer 14 collection, Meat Clothing present 'Embassy', a collection that offers a latex twist to classic and heritage cuts and prints. While previous Meat lines have drawn on hyper-current reference points, such as ‘I Luv U's’ nods to online culture, and otherworldly futures in their ‘Believe’ line, ‘Embassy’ is the first collection to explicitly take inspiration from generations older than MEAT’s design duo Alis Pelleschi and Bo Claridge. Influences for the line include memories of the bold everyday looks worn by iconic grandparents, as well as nods to advanced style blogs and the general attitude of sophistication amongst older people who continue to make the time to dress with dignity and pride. Inevitably though for a label who are becoming defined by their forward thinking approach to clothing, the collection isn’t so much about looking back as it is updating this self assured approach towards style for a modern audience – a self assured approach that, as the brand moves into its fourth season, mirrors the general attitude and coming of age confidence of Meat itself.
Travel and notions of ‘holiday’ are key themes within the collection, from its statement palm tree prints to pieces named after various classic English hotels and designs as suitable for the Riviera as they are for the more domestic school run or a lunch date with friends. Notable design developments of ‘Embassy’ can be found in the construction of statement pocket detailing and a more deliberately contrasting colour palette which ranges from soft, neutral ‘heritage’ tones to sharp lime greens. Always looking to push the boundaries with their presentations, Meat premiere the ‘Embassy’ line with an accompanying immersive micro site, featuring specially created audio and visual elements alongside .gifs and images of the clothing as a means of presenting a cohesive vision of the collection beyond the pieces themselves. The site can be viewed here.

Believe

believe

BELIEVE see’s Meat shift their focus from sexual empowerment to empowerment through knowledge. Designed for women of all ages who are taking control of their destiny’s, their careers, their environment and the technology that surrounds them through their commitment to continual learning. This season silhouettes become more sophisticated and the colour palette more minimal as MEAT re imagines the power suit through black and white latex dress pieces. Print and typography references are made in the print to hyper branded culture, with the Meat logo used as a repeated motif within the collection (alongside slogans such as ‘Born to Succeed’, Education is Power’ and ‘Expand Your Brain’), enforcing the sense that MEAT is not just the name you read on the clothing label, but an ideology of empowerment and positivity in itself. Like the collection says, all you have to do is believe…

Believe was launched as a LIVESTREAM presentation on JUST JAM: with music by Total Freedom.

4d Fantasy

4D Fantasy: The second collection by MEAT develops the brands distinct latex wear identity by re-imagining the experiences of designers Bo Claridge and Alis Pelleschi's youth and projecting them into the future. Silhouettes and clean colour palettes are drawn from their memories of provincial British chav culture and the UK Garage raves, sports centres and markets they used to attend. Once again notions of empowerment are key to the collection, with clothes designed to make MEAT boys & babes feel super sexy in their own skin, while also reclaiming the word 'slut', (emblazoned across several designs) from it's negative connotations.

4D Fantasy was launched at a LFW presentation with Blow PR.
